Alexi was a Russian agent and the car driver during the fake kidnapping of Gretchen Von KluMeister from the Washington D.C. airport during a Cold War style plot.  He worked with his lieutenant Markov for the encounter and would never be mentioned again in the story.  It is possible his name was also Dimitri, who began to appear after Alexi vanished.
