- "Colonel Gorbachev is truly crazy, then! He and his foolish ideas about perestroika will only make things worse for the Proninist Party in the long run. We don't need to reorganize the Party and join forces with the Libaterran rebels or even with the Totenkopfs! We can easily kick Maar Sulais asses on our own!"
- —A Proninist soldier about Gorbachev's plan
Colonel Mikhail Gorbachev was a high-ranking member of the Proninist Party and in charge of the Party's Eastern Maar Sul army. He was one of the officers responsible for the new plan of perestroika which involved among other things an alliance with the Crimson Coalition in order to oppose the growing power of the Grand Alliance. He was poisoned by Marya Aurelac de Maar Sul in Port Dunross in 1017 AE and died just before witnessing Geraden Aurelac's rise to power in the port city.
