Ah it's great to see you young man, you look considerably better.

Professor E.F. Kalancha (Prof. Beanpolev in some translations) (Russian: Профессор Каланча) is a scientist working for the Clear Sky faction in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky.


His origins are unknown apart from having been part of a research team at Lab X8 together with Lebedev and Docent Suslov, as revealed in the Order of Transfer (where he is referred to as E.F. Kalancha) found in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat.


Clear Sky Edit

Cold describes him as a walking calculator and encyclopedia in one and knows more about the Zone than anyone else. Professor Kalancha is first seen during a cinematic when he is observing Scar and puzzled that he cannot explain nor understand how he survived the large emission. He then walks out of the room and resumes work in his laboratories after Lebedev further interviews Scar. Professor Kalancha does not do much afterwards but offer his explanations about the Zone, as well as some of the goals of Clear Sky.

Behind the Scenes Edit

  • Beanpolev's facial features were taken from photos of GSC's physics programmer — Konstantin Slipchenko[1].


  • Professor Kalancha's name may have been translated to Beanpolev since Kalancha - Каланча - in Russian can be translated as "beanpole", and this is something you'd call someone when talking about a tall thin person. However, given that the file name for him is act_kalancha, this translation is obviously erroneous.
  • It is odd for him to refer Scar as "young man", considering that Scar seems to be quite old.
