St Petersburg, Russia
Role in the filmEdit
Maximilian was the son of an English diplomat. He was passionate about the stars, and grew up to become a professor of astronomy at the university in St Petersburg. While stargazing on the bank of the Neva river, Maximilian met Aleksa Bolotnikov. They entered into a relationship and eventually married and moved in together, sharing a small flat. After Aleksa became pregnant Maximilian indicated that he would like the child to be named Jupiter, after his favourite planet. Maximilian was shot and killed in a random armed robbery, leaving his unborn child fatherless. Despite her initial objections to the name, Aleksa named their daughter Jupiter to honour Maximillian's memory.
