Shamil Volkov (シャミール ・ヴォルコフ Shamīru Vorukofu) is a character in the manga Dr. Stone. Shamil was a Soyuz Pilot on board the International Space Station (ISS). He arrived alongside Byakuya and Lillian as the new astronauts to the ISS. While in space, he witnessed the petrification of all human life on Earth's surface from the ISS.
His personality was the opposite of Byakuya's. Byakuya considered him similar to Senku. He was often stoic, serious, pragmatic, and considered himself a loner. A man of few words, he preferred to remain active and practical in his actions, looking to work and eschewing typical pleasures such as food for more efficiency in his career.
At the end of his life, he considered himself lucky to have had the life he'd had, citing his wife and children to be the best possible outcome of the apocalypse he'd survived. In the end, he credited Byakuya with having brought the fun and levity that he used to get by all those years. Shamil, despite his seriousness, was a surprisingly gentle and sentimental man, having taken pause to mourn the death of his wife, Connie, at her graveside.
Surprisingly, despite his serious demeanor, Shamil was very musically talented, playing the drums for a record saved for future generations.
