I thought it was Akamai the Hawaiian Monk Seal. I think Vladimir was known as "The Marten."

You're thinking of Martin the Bat-Eared Fox, the Terror of Tunguska.  Akamai was the Water Buffalo and specialized in political extortion.

And yet so sweet and respectful of the pregnant lady who made his fake IDs. I've always wondered if she had a true 'Oh sh*t!" moment when his face flashed across the news as every channel started running "Infamous Jackal Taken Down" stories.

That's when you take all your forging supplies, everything, put it in a van, drive it to a warehouse, then burn the equipment, the van, and the warehouse.  Then you get in a rented car, drive away, and burn the rental.
