[[Sergey Asimov]], codename '''Programmer''' is a programmer and one of the main characters in [[CrossCode]]. In the game, he is working with the crew of the [[MS Solar]] to get [[Lea]] started in [[CrossWorlds]].
[[Sergy]] is one of the [[characters]] who helps the protagonist [[Lea]] starting from early on in the story.
[[Category: Characters]]
Sergey has a slim build and light skin, matching the Russian heritage implied by his name. He has light, sandy blonde hair, cut short and generally straight but with a prominent curl on his forehead. He has green eyes and an angular face, with well-defined cheekbones and jawline. He wears a pair of round-framed glasses, as well as a grey and red headset, which he uses to communicate remotely with the other characters. His standard attire consists of a green sweater, brown pants and black shoes.
Sergey is very knowledgeable about CrossWorlds and is eager to share that knowledge with others, to the point of talking too much at times. He can easily get annoyed by those around him, particularly when they use slang terminology or misconceptions related to CrossWorlds, but he tries hard to be patient and understanding. His somewhat uptight personality hides a snarky side and a fondness for bad jokes.
Sergey and [[Carla Salvatore|Carla]] are friends, and are working together to get Lea started in CrossWorlds. Although Sergey is shown to be somewhat irritated by Carla's work ethic and attitude towards CrossWorlds, the two have known each other for a long time and seem to be close.
Captain [[Jet]] has an unspecified history with Sergey, and the two are on good terms, although they have been out of touch for a while.
Sergey designed [[Lea]]'s [[avatar]], and is responsible for entering her into the game and activating her combat modules. He is Lea's primary source of information about CrossWorlds, and is working on workarounds for her malfunctioning speech synchronization.
Sergey is described as a professional programmer and a security expert. His exact job and affiliation with CrossWorlds are unknown, and the task of setting up an amnesiac player is implied to be very nonstandard. He has some history with the crew of the MS Solar, particularly Carla and Captain Jet. He is also implied to be a former player of CrossWorlds, given that watching Lea in combat made him feel nostalgic.
==Role in CrossCode==
Sergey initializes Lea's avatar at the beginning of CrossCode, and is the first person she speaks to in the game. He guides her through a basic [[Balls|VRP]]-throwing tutorial, and unlocks her combat modules as required. He runs an investigation into Lea's malfunctioning speech synchronization, and although he is unable to fix it, he figures out the workaround of hard-coding words and is able to give her the ability to say "Hi". When [[Egyptian Mr. Freeze]] summons the [[Cargo Crab]] to fight Lea, Sergey is able to check its battle stats, and assures Lea that she is capable of defeating it. He later does the same to the [[Advanced Attack Robot]]s, and encourages Lea to run to the teleporter.
In Puzzle Mode, Sergey provides Lea with a brief introduction to the [[Rhombus Dungeon]].
Sergey has made no physical appearances to date. All of his interactions in the game have been long-distance, with him talking to Carla and Jet via hidden earpieces. He also talks directly to Lea, and his talksprite implies that she can see a screen view of him. A similar conversation occurred between [[Shizuka]] and [[Satoshi's Captor]] in the prologue, making it possible that this is a hidden feature in all avatars.
