Head canon: I am thinking of incorporating some elements of the Night Watch movie into Anton's past but relying mostly on the books for canon. I like the idea of him being a jealous husband who goes to a witch to get his wife back. The witch, Daria, tells him his wife is pregnant with another man's child and it must miscarry. She can do this but he must accept the sin. He agrees but has trouble forcing himself to do the actual deed (unlike the movie) and is prevented from completing the Curse by the arrival of Tiger Cub and her team of Night Watch, who arrest the witch. The team is surprised when Anton reacts to their presence and are about to erase his memory when Boris Ivanovich arrives and declares Anton to be an Other and takes him on as his apprentice (as in the book). 

I like the movie prologue as it hints at the Darkness Anton has as well as the Light. It also helps explain Anton's hesitation with Svetlana, having been burned by love before. Obviously this would have been a young marriage, since he would have been 23 when this happens. Foolish young love.

Night Watch OOMs:
Tempted to at least do a short version of the above as a prologue.

Not sure if I want to do any of the cases from Night Watch. If do the prologue OOM, I think I should at least do the final case to show Anton adjusted to being an Other and accepting being a field operative.

And now I am tempted yet again to do the prologue and have Anton come to Milliways during the first case when he is hopped up on medicines and pig blood to attune himself to vampires.

Day Watch OOMs: (Ignoring the first case and jumping to the second)
01-Anton has been getting dire hints from his music that someone he knows is doomed. It is vague and he sulks about until Tiger Cub drags him to a pub to cheer him up. I don't know if he will tell her about the vague warnings but they are about her, of course.

02-Anton arrives too late to save Tiger Cub, dives into the Gloom to try and rescue her but fails, getting not one glimpse of the battle mage (can't mess with what has already been written). Wake at some bar with field team.

03-Maybe Anton finds his way to Milliways while on his trip to Prague in the third case?

Things to figure out:
Once Milliways finds Anton, does Boris Ivanovich know about Milliways? If not, how does Anton hide it from him? Perhaps Olga makes some sort of specialized amulet that only hides knowledge of Milliways and only works for Anton? Or maybe Bar or another patron provides one?
