Ignat is a self-absorbed mage with "[the] face of a Hollywood actor and the body of a Greek god", and is something of a Light incubus. He prides himself on being able to bed any woman (or man, he doesn't care either way). As a result, he takes failure very hard. In ''"Night Watch"'' He is called by Geser to attempt to seduce Svetlana Nazarova, so she would relax the vortex or at least say who cursed her. However, he tries too hard and she figures him out. Later, during a party at Tiger Cub's home, he sleeps with Svetlana and Olga.
