The T-103 Ivan, a specially re-engineered derivation of the T-103 Tyrant line, was created by Sergei Vladimir to serve as his personal bodyguard. Its basic combat functionality is that of a T-103, but it has been modified to better assimilate into human society. In addition to the trademark T-103 defensive coat, this model is also equipped with colored visors that include a head-mounted display. Major improvements with this model include greater powers of comprehension, and the ability to pass as a human. It is still a T-103 and, as such, can transform into a Super Tyrant when the situation calls for it.
Only two Ivans were made. Both were created to serve Sergei. The only difference between them is the color of their visors: one blue and the other orange. Albert Wesker first fought one Ivan in 1998. In 2003, he fought both Ivans at the same time, destroying them in the process.
