History[edit | edit source]
Early Life[edit | edit source]
Dimitri Belikov (born 3rd December 1990; Baia, Russia) is the only son of Olena Belikova, a Russian Dhampir, and Randall Ivashkov, an abusive royal Moroi. He is the younger brother of Karolina Belikova and Sonja Belikova and the older brother of Viktoria Belikova. Despite having been raised in a large dhampir commune - a community of Blood whores and their offspring - he grew up in a loving environment thanks to his mother and grandmother. After witnessing years of the continuous abuse of his mother by his father, Dimitri beat his father up to the point he refused to return to Baia at the age of thirteen.
While attending St Basil's Academy in Russia, he became friends with the royal Moroi, Ivan Zeklos, who later became his charge upon his graduation. Under the guidance of his mentor Galina, Dimitri graduated with high grades and honours. While on holiday a few years after his graduation, Ivan and his other guardian were attacked and killed by Strigoi.
Dimitri was then sent to America, where he was tasked to find and retrieve Princess Vasilisa Dragomir, a royal Moroi who fled St. Vladimir's Academy in her sophomore year. After a year's investigation, Dimitri tracked her in Portland, Oregon. Upon their return to St. Vladimir's, he was assigned as Vasilisa's guardian. Over the next few months, he began to fall in love with his student, Rosemarie Hathaway, who left the academy two years earlier with Lissa.
Vampire Academy[edit | edit source]
Joined by a team of Academy guardians, Dimitri was sent to locate and retrieve Vasilisa Dragomir and Rosemarie Hathaway. He is present during the pair's questioning at the hands of Headmistress Kirova and speaks up on Rose's behalf when Kirova threatens to expel her. After, Dimitri reluctantly agrees to become Rose's mentor to help her catch up to her classmates' level of training; he proves to be a patient and wise teacher.
There is an inevitable attraction between the two; Rose's infatuation of her mentor soon turns into love, which in turn reluctantly (and dangerously) becomes mutual. Unfortunately, both are also aware it can never progress into a relationship due to their responsibilities as guardians.
Frostbite [edit | edit source]
Dimitri takes Rose to the residence of Arthur Schoenberg, a retired legendary guardian chosen to protect one of the Moroi royal families. Upon their arrival, they're shocked to find him and the Moroi murdered in a Strigoi attack. More Strigoi massacres follow, with Mia Rinaldi's mother being one of the victims. Soon after, Rose discovers where the Strigoi are hiding; she is insistent on not revealing the location to anyone but ends up stubbornly telling fellow guardian and friend, Mason Ashford. This leads to him, Eddie Castile, and Mia to going on a quest of vengance to kill the Strigoi themselves, however none are to be found. Rose discovers their plans and sneaks out to stop them with the help of Christian Ozera. Not long after convincing them to come back, Rose and the others are kidnapped by humans working for the Stragoi. Eventually, when they attempt to escape from the kidnapper's basement, Rose is attacked by the head Strigoi, Isaiah, and his partner, Elena; they all make it out into the light except Rose. Mason is later killed by Isaiah during his attempt to rescue her. In a burst of rage, Rose kills Elena and then beheads Isaiah with a dull sword while he was distracted by Mia's Water (element). After, a devastated Rose holds Mason's dead body in her arms. His body is pried from her arms when Dimitri, Janine Hathaway, and other guardians arrive on the scene and proceed to get her home to St. Vladimir's.
Shadow Kiss[edit | edit source]
Dimitri encounters Rose during his watch of the Academy grounds, after the latter sneaks out of her dormitory after a disturbing "dream" caused by Lissa - they chat. As Dimitri walks Rose back to her dormitory, Alberta appears, and Rose is forced to hide in the bushes as Dimitri and Alberta discuss the changes in Dimitri's training times for the next few weeks. Because Dimitri is going to Victor Dashkov's trial, he must swap training sessions with other guardians. Dimitri feels uncomfortable during the conversation, since he knows Rose is listening and that she's not meant to know about Victor's trial, and ends the discussion quickly so that she doesn't learn too much about it. After Alberta leaves Dimitri faces Rose's anger at not being told about the trial, and how he refuses to convince Alberta to let her, Lissa and Christian testify, since Dimitri claims he doesn't have enough influence to do that.
Just after the novices receive their assignments for the field experience, Dimitri is present with Alberta when Rose comes up to them to complain about her assignment. Though initially furious, Rose calms down when Dimitri and Alberta rationally explain to her the reasons for the assignment. When Rose is accused of purposefully refusing to protect her Moroi during her first Strigoi attack, Dimitri defends her, knowing that she would never take revenge in such a petty way. His words help convince the committee to keep Rose in the field experience and only give her one day of community service as a punishment. After the session has ended, Dimitri questions Rose on the real reason for her freezing up, but she refuses to tell him the truth, instead claiming that she was taken by surprise and scared. Dimitri doesn't believe her, but can't force her to admit the truth to him.
During Rose's day of community service, Dimitri shows up to help her, just so he can spend time with her.
After Adrian pulls some strings to allow Rose, Lissa and Christian to attend Victor's trial, Rose is sure that Dimitri finally pulled through for her, but he tells her that he didn't do anything. During the flight, when Rose starts having a migraine, Dimitri is concerned for her. In Royal Court, Rose shows up at his door with a note from Victor Dashkov implying that he will reveal Rose and Dimitri's relationship at the trial, as Rose had feared he would.
Realizing that Victor wants something of Rose, Dimitri arranges for them both to speak to him in his cell, to discover what he wants. While they wait for the right time to go there, Dimitri apologizes to Rose for not being able to get her to the trial, feeling as if he had let her down. Rose, to his gratitude, tells him that he didn't let her down and has never let her down, and that she'd acted like a 'total brat' regarding the matter. While speaking to Victor, Dimitri demands to know why he wanted to see Rose, but Victor refuses to give a clear answer, other than that he wanted to hear about Lissa. To his surprise, Rose asks Victor questions about death and ghosts, similar to what she asked the priest on their day of community service. When Victor points out that he could reveal Dimitri and Rose's relationship in the court-room despite having gotten what he wanted, Dimitri threatens him in a deadly tone, which shocks Rose.
The next morning, Dimitri sends a package of formal guardian clothes to Rose's room, along with a note to wear her hair up. When testifying during the trial, Dimitri lies under oath when he is questioned about the delay in alerting the Academy of Lissa's abduction, stating that it was because Victor had compelled Rose to attack him. Rose notes that it pains him to lie, but he does it because he has no other choice.
Shortly before the scheduled flight back to the Academy, Dimitri comes to Rhonda's office to collect Rose and Lissa, who had been given tarot readings. Rhonda convinces Dimitri to stay for a moment and receive his own tarot reading, as he appears to be a mystery she wants to solve. The cards Rhonda deals out for Dimitri are the Knight of Rods, the Wheel of Fortune, and the Five of Cups. Rhonda tells Dimitri that he 'will lose what you value most, so treasure it while you can. The wheel is turning, always turning.' Dimitri takes the reading seriously and thanks Rhonda politely before he, Rose and Lissa leave for their flight.
When Rose and the others are on the plane going back to the Academy from the Royal Court, Rose suddenly appears to have a mental breakdown, screaming "Make them go away!" and tries to get out of her seat, throwing her hands in the air before she passes out. When they get back to the academy, Alberta and Dimitri send Rose straight to the medic clinic and question her when she wakes up about what happened on the plane. Rose, feeling she shouldn't lie to her interrogators, gives in. She tells them and Dr. Olendzki about the ghosts she has been seeing, and how upset and shocked she was. Without her present, Dr. Olzenski later tells Alberta and Dimitri Rose appears to be having a "mental breakdown", which might force her to leave her guardian classes. Rose eavesdrops and is upset by what is said; throwing open the door and tries to reason with them. After not getting exactly what she wants, Rose is cut short of field experience.
When they are alone, Dimitri demands to know why Rose did not tell him this earlier, revealing he was terrified for her on the plane. Rose tells him that she refused to tell him because she thought that he wouldn't believe her.
One day, Rose accidentally slips into Lissa's mind and discovers that Jesse is torturing her, trying to make her fight him with compulsion. Suffering, Lissa starts to go into a spirit frenzy because of the dark feelings slipping into her. She attacks him with her powers, making him see hallucinations of spiders crawling over his body. Rose hurries over and tries to stop Lissa, insisting "[I]t isn't you". She absorbs the dark feelings from Lissa and becomes possessed by them, causing her to be filled with the desire to hurt Jesse - she attacks him. Alberta has Dimitri take Rose away to calm down.
Dimitri takes her to a nearby cabin to patch up some minor injuries and figure out what's wrong. But when their conversation takes a turn for the worst, Dimitri pins her with his body after she tries escaping and helps her fight her bloodlust. Rose and Dimitri end up have sex in the cabin - Rose’s first time.
When they leave, they discuss how to balance their guardian duties with their relationship. Their plans are quickly cut short when Rose sees Mason again. He warns her there are Strigoi on campus. Dimitri implores Rose, "Tell the guardians buria." Rose runs to warn the school guardians, while Dimitri remains behind to fight the Strigoi.
The campus goes under lock-down, but those who were outside are kidnapped by the Strigoi. After she learns that Eddie was among the ones taken, Rose gets the guardians to conduct a rescue mission, and Mason helps her find the Strigoi.
Just as the assault team are about to escape, several more Strigoi ambush them. Nathan, a blonde Strigoi, overwhelms Dimitri and bites him. Rose wants to stay and go back for him, but her mother refuses to let her. Mason reluctantly informs Rose Dimitri was turned into a Strigoi, before fading away and finding peace. Rose drops out of school and leaves Lissa to look for Dimitri in Russia and kill him, using funds given to her by Adrian Ivashkov.
Blood Promise[edit | edit source]
During Shadow Kiss, Strigoi get into the school and attack the students, taking many prisoners. When the guardians go on a rescue mission to drive them from their hiding place and retake the prisoners, Dimitri is taken and turned, then disappears. In Blood Promise, Rose finds Dimitri. He is shown to have accepted his fate, and even prefers the life of a Strigoi to the enslavement of being a guardian. He attempts to convince Rose to let him turn her, as he has not lost his lust for her. His affection would never be the same, because Strigoi don't see beauty, only things that will gain them power, help their personal image, etc.
Spirit Bound[edit | edit source]
During Spirit Bound, Rose finds a way to change a Strigoi back to their previous self using Spirit, but strictly tells Lissa that she would never allow her to do it. However, Lissa secretly uses her spirit to charms a stake and at the climax of the novel, stakes Dimitri through the heart, changing Dimitri from a Strigoi to a guilty and heartbroken dhampir.
Dimitri states he owes his life to Lissa, and, though he doesn't voice it, he knows that he still owes his life to Rose, too. He is filled with guilt at what he did to Rose in Siberia, and decides that it is best for him to stay away from her. Dimitri feels that it is impossible to forgive himself for what he did as a Strigoi. He repeatedly pushes himself away from Rose when she tries to get closer again. Eventually he becomes so desperate to keep her away, he lies that he does not love her any more. "Love fades. Mine has." This sits with Rose for a long time and she tries to get over Dimitri, believing that if she is to accept that he has moved on, she should too. No matter what she tells herself, she never truly accepts it
Last Sacrifice[edit | edit source]
In Last Sacrifice, Dimitri escapes the Court with Rose, convicted murderess of the late queen Tatiana, further convincing people that he is a Strigoi. During the journey they come across many different gangs of Strigoi. Dimitri has to call, Boris a previous Strigoi accomplice and pretend to be a Strigoi. Rose and Sydney thought that the experience was terrifying, and his mood was awful afterwards.
Once they meet Donovan, he nearly has a mental breakdown from the crushing guilt and memories of being Strigoi. Rose manages to help him by telling him to find the beauty in life, as Strigoi can't see it. On the entire journey, Dimitri begins to forgive himself more and more as his relationship with Rose grows stronger.
Bloodlines (series)[edit | edit source]
Physical Appearance[edit | edit source]
Dimitri Belikov is described as extremely handsome and attractive; standing tall at an impressive 6ft7 in with a long, lean, and very muscular physique. he possesses dark brown eyes and shoulder-length brown which is often tied back into a short ponytail. Like most guardians, Dimitri has multiple Molnija marks on the back of his neck; each represents a Strigoi he killed.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Dimitri is a quiet, soldier-like man who at first appears stoic. His emotions can be hard to read most of the time (due to his guardian 'mask'). He can appear gruff and strict at first, although he does show some acts of kindness, deep down he is loving and has a strong loyalty to those he cares about. Dimitri is extremely loyal and dutiful, especially when it comes to guarding the Moroi.
Relationships[edit | edit source]
Rosemarie Hathaway is the love of Dimitri's life, his future wife and soulmate. They first meet when Dimitri comes to take Rose and Lissa back to St. Vladimir's. After they return to the Academy, Dimitri fights for Rose to remain at school to become a Guardian. Kirova agrees, on the condition that Dimitri becomes her mentor. Rose develops a crush on him very quickly. During combat training, she blushes when he pins her down and ends up on top of her. As her training continues and intensifies, they find out many things about each other and begin to fall in love. Dimitri hides his feelings as they both have to protect Lissa someday and cannot be distracted by each other. When Victor places a lust charm on a rose necklace he gives Rose as a present, under its influence, the two nearly make love in Dimitri's room. Victor uses the charm to distract them as he kidnaps Lissa Dragomir for her spirit magic. When realising the necklace is charmed, Dimitri removes the necklace and he and Rose rescue Lissa. Victor is temporarily locked up at the Academy. Rose asks to speak with Victor one last time. He tells her that in order for the lust charm to have worked, there had to be a certain degree of attraction between Rose and Dimitri. Victor then uses his recently turned Strigoi daughter Natalie to try to murder her, however Dimitri interveans and Natalie is killed out of necessity. While carrying Rose to the clinic, Rose tells Dimitri what Victor had said and asks why Dimitri had lied about his affection towards her. He confesses his feelings and explains why they could never be together: If ever in the future a strigoi came to attack while they both were guarding Lissa, he would be conflicted between duty and love, "If I let myself love you, I won't throw myself in front of her. I'll throw myself in front of you.”
Frostbite[edit | edit source]
As a way of getting Rose out of his head, Dimitri chooses to be closer to his friend Tasha Ozera, but can't stop thinking about Rose. He becomes jealous when Rose starts talking to Adrian Ivashkov, warning her against him. "You're not an adult yet," he tells her after he catches her in Adrian's room. When Rose leaves with Christian to stop Mason, Eddie and Mia from attacking Strigoi in Spokane, Dimitri is extremely worried over Rose, and when he arrives at the scene, he is the only one to get through to her. Dimitri realises that even though he could become Tasha's guardian and husband (the only chance he'd have of having his own children, (two dhampirs are incapable of having children together) he could never love Tasha in the way that she wanted. "Not when my heart is somewhere else.”
Shadow Kiss[edit | edit source]
When Rose's final training comes up, the sexual desire between Dimitri and Rose has started to heighten towards each other. He becomes extremely worried when spirit's effects cause Rose to see ghosts, most notably Mason, who died in Spokane in Frostbite.
After Rose takes on Lissa's darkness, and brutally attacks Jesse Zeklos, Dimitri takes Rose to a cabin in the woods, where he manages to break through Rose's frenzy, and they end up having sex for the first time.
Shortly after this, Dimitri is attacked and forcefully turned into a Strigoi, fleeing to Russia to stay away and protect Rose.
Blood Promise[edit | edit source]
Rose follows Dimitri to Russia to stake him as he'd asked her to do if he ever became a Strigoi in the earlier novel. After he finds out she is searching for him, he kidnaps and drinks from her, trying to persuade her to be awakened as Strigoi. After she manages to escape, he chases her to a nearby bridge, where Rose nearly jumps off rather than be turned. He saves her, but this gives her an opening to kill him. However, thanks to Rose not staking him all the way through the chest, combined with the impact with the river pushing the stake all the way out before it could kill him, he survives. Once she gets back to the US he sends her a letter, along with the stake she used to 'kill' him.
Spirit Bound[edit | edit source]
Lissa is able to turn Dimitri back to normal in Spirit Bound. Out of guilt, he pushes Rose away to protect her, even to the point that he tells her that his love for her has faded, breaking her heart and leading her to decide to almost have sex with Adrian to move on. Before a situation leads to him fiercely defending her from the guardians sent to arrest her for murder.
Last Sacrifice[edit | edit source]
Dimitri and friends break Rose out of prison when she is framed for killing Queen Tatiana in Last Sacrifice. Over time, Rose thinks her love for Dimitri was fading, however their love for one another grows stronger as they try to find proof of Rose's innocence.
When Rose is once again overcome with spirit, Dimitri helps her to forgive herself for accidentally killing Victor Dashkov. Dimitri finally proclaims that his love had never wavered, and - even though he does not want Rose to cheat on Adrian - they have sex for the second time, in their hotel room.
Dimitri and Rose travel back to Court, where Tasha is revealed to be the killer. She takes Mia (a friend of Rose's) hostage and when confronted by gardians, aims a gun at Lissa. Rose jumps in front of her and gets shot in the chest. Dimitri believes he has lost her, and is overcome with grief. However in light of this he forgives himself and realizes that Rose really does love him, and has also forgiven him. Rose miraculously recovers. After Lissa is proclaimed Queen, Rose and Dimitri are able to have a relationship since Rose becomes one of Lissa's Guardians, and Dimitri is assigned to Christian Ozera Lissa's boyfriend.
Shortly after Rose's recovery, both of them go to Russia together to see his family again, and throughout the trip, Dimitri drops hints that he wants to marry Rose. Also, Adrian Ivashkov says the two are inseparable when at Court and when on duty, "moved almost as one entity, like a matched pair of wolves or lions, both weary and deadly as they studied their surroundings." When off duty he said they, "had been too wrapped up in each other, sitting outside on a sunny day. She'd leaned against Dimitri, looking content in a way Adrian had never seen -- certainly not while he'd dated her. She'd said something that made Dimitri laugh, bringing a smile to the other man's hard features, a smile that Adrian hadn't thought was possible."
When at Palm Springs, Dimitri greatly misses Rose, and when she calls him at the restaurant, according to Sydney, his face glows, and a large smile comes across his face.
Dimitri loves Rose's hair, and he calls her Roza when thinking or speaking of her with affection or love.
In the eulogy of Ruby Circle, Dimitri proposes to Rose with a cut diamond ring surrounded by blue sapphires... She finally answers "Yes" and sometimes wears it.
A Quote From Vampire Academy: The Ultimate Guide[edit | edit source]
Q&A WITH RICHELLE MEAD
What was the exact moment that Dimitri fell in love with Rose?
"I'm not sure that we can pinpoint the exact moment that Dimitri fell for Rose. It was definitely a gradual thing that crept up on him (and her!). I can say for sure, though, that he was awestruck by her at their very first meeting. Rose throwing herself between Lissa and the guardians, even when she was hopelessly outnumbered, is definitely one of the most powerful scenes in the series. It establishes Rose's nature right away--both her bravery and intense devotion to those she loves. Dimitri possesses those exact same traits, and I think seeing that in her was definitely a moment when the world stood still for him." -- Vampire Academy: The Ultimate Guide. Page 254.
Tasha Ozera was one of Dimitri's closest friend. After she visits the Academy, Dimitri tries to get over Rose by getting closer to Tasha, being already aware of her feelings. When Tasha offers him the option to become her guardian and lover (with the possibility of having a family together in the future), Dimitri refuses, finally accepting the fact his heart belonged to another person: Rose Hathaway. Because of his refusal, Tasha decides to get rid of Rose by killing the queen with Rose's stake; making her the main suspect for the murder. After framing Rose, she tries to get closer to Dimitri again, thinking she had a chance without any other rival in her way. The main problem was that Dimitri still loved and believed in Rose, supporting her during her imprisonment. Heart-broken and desperate after the guardians tried to retain her, Tasha shoots Rose. After her treason to the Moroi society and second murder attempt the relationship between Dimitri and Tasha is unknown.
Christian Ozera is Dimitri's charge at the end of Last Sacrifice. They become close friends, due to Dimitri being his Guardian.
Adrian and Dimitri are rivals for Rose's love, and Adrian holds a grudge against him after Rose leaves him for Dimitri. They also clash due to having different work ethics. They do eventually become friends to a certain extent, although Adrian teases that he "can't hold his liquor". Dimitri tries to help Adrian after he becomes depressed after the Alchemists abduct Sydney, but is rebuffed. It is shown that he accepts the marriage between Adrian and human Sydney Sage. It is later revealed that Dimitri is the first cousin of Adrian, due to Adrian's uncle, Randall Ivashkov, being Dimitri's father.
Lissa Dragomir is initially Dimitri's new charge, as he brings her and Rose back from Portland. Over time they become close friends, though she was initially hurt when Rose didn't tell her about her and Dimitri's relationship. Lissa uses a silver stake charmed with spirit to turn Dimitri back into a dhampir when he was a Strigoi, and he becomes eternally grateful towards Lissa, thinking of her as an angel. Dimitri feels as though he would always be in debt to Lissa for turning him back from being Strigoi. Their friendship continues, as Lissa was named Queen, while Dimitri becomes the Guardian of Lissa's boyfriend, Christian Ozera.
