Background: European socialite Paris Carver married for money, not for love, after being disappointed by James Bond one too many times. She originally met Bond in Switzerland but then lost contact with him after she realized his job came first. Many years later, her husband, media baron Elliot Carver, became the subject on an MI5 investigation being spearheaded by 007. Their paths crossed once again, this time with Paris vowing not to help Bond at all. But no woman can say no to 007, and she gave Bond directions to a secret laboratory in Carver`s Hamburg headquarters that even she wasn`t supposed to know about. Paris took her chances by rebuffing Bond`s offer for government protection, instead opting to handle Elliot in her own way. Sadly, Elliot and his henchman, Dr. Kauffman, proved to be too cunning for Paris` own good. She was murdered and her death was used to set 007 up. Bond, however, turned the tables, and avenged Paris` death by killing not only Dr. Kaufmann, but also Elliot, along the way realizing he had deeper feelings for Paris than he once thought.

Background: James Bond`s equal counterpart in the Chinese Peoples External Security Force, she eventually teams up with 007, though she`s a reluctant and tough sell. At 5`4″ and only 98lbs, she packs quite a punch and is not to be underestimated. Her initial contact with 007 came as a result of crossing paths at a celebration hosted by media baron Elliot Carver. Ms. Lin was in disguise as a party crasher looking for a job in Elliot Carver`s pending Beijing News Division, all the while investigating Chinese General Chang, missing Stealth material, and a connection with Carver Media News Group.
She`s escaped an imploding submarine, a free fall off of a 50 story building, a rooftop to rooftop jump over a helicopter and launched an assault on a Stealth Ship. She`s an independent rogue who likes to work by herself, call the shots by herself and answer to no one. Just like 007.

Skills: Torture; Hand To Hand Combat; Fire Combat; Explosives; Breaking and Entering; Stealth
Weaknesses: Inability to feel pain
Method of Killing: Random
Background: Stamper was the Head of Security for Elliot Carver`s global media network before his death. Stamper was a psychotic thug whose greatest strength was also his biggest weakness…an inability to feel pain.
Stamper was genetically engineered from birth to have no nerve endings. His pleasure centers were reversed and thus pain brought him pleasure whereas pleasure brought him pain. He studied the art of Chakra Torture with a pistol marksman known only as Doctor Kaufmann. The goal of Chakra Torture is to slowly extract vital organs out of your victim yet keep them alive while doing it. Dr. Kaufmann`s record was 51 hours and Stamper hoped to break that record using James Bond as his guinea pig. Stampers days as an enforcer came to an end when he was blown apart aboard Elliot Carver`s Stealth Ship.
Background: As Bond`s Danish teacher she taught 007 a “new tongue”. The Professor teaches at Oxford and serves as an occasional weekend tryst for Bond.

Fields of Expertise: Computers; Microphotography
Background: Goodnight looks better on paper than in action. A liason officer sent to Hong Kong to assist James Bond on his hunt for Scaramanga, Goodnight creates more problems than she solves. For most of her `Golden Gun` mission she managed to get trapped in a variety of tight situations. For example, she gets trapped in Bond`s hotel closet while he makes love to Andrea Anders. Another time she finds herself trapped in the trunk of Scaramanga`s car which converts into an airplane and takes off. When Goodnight isn`t getting herself trapped she`s getting other people killed, or close to it. Goodnight manages to switch on a solar powered laser beam that nearly fries Bond to a bloody crisp. In another faux pas, she knocks one of Scaramanga`s men into a temperature controlled liquid nitrogen chamber, thus raising the temperature by one degree and setting off a chain reaction that leads to the destruction of Scaramanga`s island palace. Mary Goodnight: beautiful to look at, deadly to touch. This is one field agent better left back in the office.

Subject: Nurse Fearing
Weight: 135 lbs
Weaknesses: Obsessive desire for control
Fields of Expertise: Physiology; Massage Therapy
Background: A top notch therapist at Shrublands, Nurse Fearing broke all the rules when it came to 007. Rather than keep her relationship with Bond strictly professional i.e. doctor/patient, Nurse Fearing began a cat and mouse game of sexual liaisons with the secret agent. At first she tried rebuffing his advances, but later gave into his persistently charming personality, and that eventually led to encounters in a steam room and in her private quarters, as he massaged her with a mink lined glove.
Background: Stationed with the French Secret Service, LaPorte was assigned to assist James in anything he needed while in Paris. James was at the funeral of Jack Bouvard, an enemy agent who had killed a colleague of Bond`s. But things weren`t as they seemed. Bouvard`s “widow” turned about to be Bouvard, who was hiding in drag. Bond and LaPorte corned him at a chateau outside of Paris. Bond strangled Bouvard with a poker, strapped on a jet pack, and flew above and beyond to the waiting arms of LaPorte and his Aston Martin.
Background: One of Bond`s local contacts in the Bahamas during his Thunderball mission; her main focus was to assist Bond on any jobs he needed having done or answering any questions he might have. Paula was kidnapped by Vargas and Janni. She later swallowed a cyanide pill rather than divulge what she knew about the investigation into Largo.
Subject: Fiona Volpe
Weight: 130 lbs
Skills: Firearms; Disguise; Stealth; Torture; Interrogation; Seduction
Method of Killing: Random
Background: The “other woman” of Emilio Largo, Fiona Volpe is a highly trained SPECTRE agent in her own right, though she tends to let others do the dirty work while she remains perfectly coifed and good looking.
Fiona`s part in what would become Operation:Thunderball began when she seduced Francois Vitale, an Army Pilot stationed in England. She spent time with him, photographing him, studying his voice, his mannerisms, etc…and then passing them on to SPECTRE. From Fiona`s reports, SPECTRE crafted an exact double to replace Colonel Vitale, knowing that the real Vitale was too honest to succumb to SPECTRE`s offer.
Her methods of getting rid of opposition have varied. She killed an incompetent Count Lippe by blowing up the car he was driving with a rocket launched from her motorcycle. She gassed the real Francois Vitale to death, and kidnapped Bond`s assistant Paula, who was forced to take cyanide tablets rather than confess secrets. Don`t let her good looks and fashion sense fool you. This kitten`s got claws.
Background: Domino is the sister of Air Force Pilot Francois Vitale, and reluctant mistress of Emilio Largo. Francois plays a vital role, albeit unwittingly, into SPECTRE`s plans to steal two nuclear bombs. He is murdered by his lover, Fiona Volpe (a SPECTRE agent herself), and then doubled by an imposter. After 007 finds Vitale`s body, he heads to Nassau to investigate Operation:Thunderball and tell Domino her brother is dead.
She was vacationing in Capri when she caught the eye of Largo. His plan was to get close to Domino and then in turn get close to Francois whom he knew to be an Air Force Pilot. In time Domino became his mistress or “kept woman”. She`s kept happy with the extravagant jewels, gowns, furs, fine dining, gambling, and housing that Largo can provide.
Being Largo`s mistress can be dangerous. Being Largo`s mistress and being seduced by a man like James Bond can be deadly. But once Domino learns her brother is dead, she`s more than willing to help bring Largo and SPECTRE down. 007 equips her with a camera that doubles as a geiger counter to measure radioactivity and determine whether the stolen nuclear bombs are on board Largo`s yacht. Domino is not an agent of any kind, but when the desire for revenge is strong, even Largo will find it a difficult task facing down a woman scorned.

Weaknesses: Blind in one eye
Favorite Method of Killing: Shark Feeding
Background: SPECTRE`s Number Two man; given the responsibility of heading up what would be SPECTRE`s most ambitious project to date: stealing two nuclear bombs and holding the world for ransom.
Largo was a brutal, sadistic man who kept people loyal to him through intimidation, fear and torture. Those who have double crossed or failed Largo paid the ultimate price. Their life. When Christe failed to kill 007 in his hotel room, Largo fed him to his Golden Grotto Sharks. He also had Paula Kaplan kidnapped. Rather than talk, Paula was forced to kill herself. When Count Lippe botched the job with Angelo, it was Largo`s report that convinced Blofeld to have Lippe executed.
Largo kept a house on Palmyra, in the Bahamas, and that is where he retreated, with his yacht The Disco Volante, and the nuclear bombs on board. When Largo met up with Bond at the gambling tables in Nassau, Largo knew right away who 007 was. Bond had long been an enemy of SPECTRE, and his life was marked immediately after that first encounter.
Joining 007 in his effort to thwart Largo and SPECTRE was CIA Agent Felix Leiter, as well as the US Coast Guard, Paula Caplan and Largo`s mistress Domino, who was eager to leave him. 007 and the Coast Guard eventually defeated Largo`s forces, but Largo managed to retreat to the Disco Volante in a last ditch effort to escape. Bond jumped on board and managed a fight to the finish with Largo, but it was a shot from Domino`s gun that put Largo out for good.
Background: Kara Milovy was an innocent musician, playing Cello in Czechoslavkia, who was used as a pawn and got caught up in a web of international deceit and intrigue by a man she thought she could trust: her boyfriend, Russian General Georgi Koskov.
Koskov convinced Kara that he was going to defect to the West, inform British Intelligence of what the Russians were up to, make the world safe from the Communists, and bring her over to enjoy the amenities of Capitalism. Instead, he set her up to make his fake defection look real, and then die in the process, thereby covering the tracks of what the true purpose of his defection was about.
Kara was set up to pose as a sniper, a KGB agent sent to asassinate Koskov should he try to defect. 007 was positioned on the other side of an intersection with orders to kill the sniper. But his instincts told him the girl was only an amateur and instead of killing her he wounded her. Eventually 007 gains Kara`s trust, though he first lies to her to get it and she follows him to Austria, Morocco, and Afghanistan where they topple an international illegal arms sale and drug ring.

Background: Linda was a single woman looking for a good time in the vacinity of Gibraltar at the same time Bond was engaged in a training exercise. On her yacht circling the great base of The Rock, she was commenting to her friend Margo how boring she was finding her vacation…”nothing but tennis pros and playboys. If only I could find a real man.” As if on cue, Bond dropped out of the sky and gently floated down on top of her yacht using his parachute. He telephoned Exercise Control and informed them he`d be reporting in an hour. With a glass of champagne and a seductive look however, Linda convinced James to “make that two”.
Background: General Pushkin succeeded General Gogol as leader of the KGB and promptly found himself in the middle of an arms for heroin smuggling ring being masterminded by one of his own charges. Pushkin began to suspect that General Yeorgi Koskov was misusing, or stealing, state funds. He was just about to question Yeorgi when he defected to the West while attending a concert in Czechoslavakia.
Yeorgi promptly informed the British Secret Service of Operation Smiert Spionem: “Death To Spies”. Yeorgi claimed the operation was being spearheaded by Pushkin, who wanted to assasinate counter spies and lead the world to the brink of World War 3. The reality was quite different. Truth be told, he was framing Pushkin for crimes he committed and was trying to persuade British Intelligence to assassinate Pushkin for him; in effect, get others to do his dirty work for him.
Bond was wise to the plot from the very beginning, and never trusted Yeorgi. When he finally got a chance to confront Pushkin, the two hammered out a plan to trick Koskov into thinking Bond had shot and killed Pushkin. Later, Pushkin revealed himself to Koskov, promptly putting him on a plane back to Moscow to face charges of defecting. Before parting ways, Pushkin arranged for Kara Milovy to have a visa so she could travel in and out of the Iron Curtain whenever she pleased.

Born in Texas, Jack Wade worked his way up in the ranks of the CIA until he became a foreign field agent. He speaks several foreign languages including Russian and Japanese. He has spent several years spying on and infiltrating the new Russian Mobs. Those mobs have included The Janus Group, and other such organizations that peddle nuclear technology on the black market. Wade was 007`s contact on his Goldeneye mission and was responsible for getting 007 in touch with Janus` rival, Valentine Zukovsky. That meeting eventually led to 007 unmasking Janus. Wade also was responsible for 007`s insertion into Cuba, and into Vietnamese waters.

Fields of Expertise: None
Background: Kamran Shah was the Deputy Director of the Eastern District of Mujahedin Freedom Fighters, a rebel group fighting against a Soviet invasion. Kamran was caught “reconnoitering” the airbase Yeorgi Koskov was using to smuggle heroin in and out of. Lucky for Shah, the staff didn`t recogzine Kamran, or else he would have been executed immediately.
Kamran was set to be executed when James Bond was placed in the same jail. Bond, together with Kara escaped, tossing Kamran the keys to let himself out. Later, when Bond and Kamran learned each others true identity, they teamed up to defeat Koskov and smash an arms for heroin smuggling ring.
The last Soviet soldiers marched out of Afghanistan on Feb. 15, 1989, returning to a country that was changing irrevocably. Officially, 13,000 Soviet soldiers died there—though most veterans of the conflict estimate the true number to be at least twice that. An additional 50,000 were wounded. The U.S.S.R. had suffered a humiliating defeat; never again would the West view its power in the same way.

Fields of Expertise: Fine Arts; Botany; Jewelry; Rare Collectibles
Background: The daughter of Major Dexter Smythe. After a brilliant military career, Dexter Smythe was recruited to the Secret Service where he was assigned to track down a lost cache of gold in post Nazi Germany. Dexter`s guide Oberhauser, and Oberhauser`s gun both disappeared. Dexter Smythe stole the gold and killed his guide. 007 tracked Smythe down to Sri Lanka and gave him 24 hours to clear up his affairs. Smythe committed suicide rather than face the disgrace of a court martial.
It`s easy to see where Octopussy gets her scheming ways. After inheriting the palatial estates in Udapiur, India, she slowly built up a business built mostly on jewelry smuggling. She soon diversified into Hotels, Circuses and Carnivals. It was the Circus that provided her cover as a legitimate businesswoman, all the while she plunders the national treasures of the countries she visits. In addition, her women only palace houses many wayward girls looking for “spiritual…discipline”. Octopussy trains them. Gives them a purpose. A way of life. A life of crime.
While Octopussy is a criminal, her crimes aren`t of a personal nature. Just mere greed. It was while investigating the disappearance of The Faberge Egg that commander Bond first encountered the alluring, and mysterious Octopussy. She had always hoped that fate would bring them together one day; to thank 007 for giving her father an honorable alternative to a court martial. 007`s biggest challenge though may be in resisting the tantalizing offer Octopussy dangles in front of him: to join her syndicate. The rewards, monetarily speaking, are great. But 007`s loyalty is to Queen and Country.

Weight: 170 lbs
Skills: Interrogation; Torture; Driving; Piloting
Fields of Expertise: International Law; Rare Art; Jewelry; Collectibles; Big Game Hunting
Background: An exiled Afghan Prince, Kamal took up residence in Udaipur and established a smugling ring with the mysterious island woman known only as Octopussy. His backgrond in International Law gave Octopussy insight into how to smuggle jewelry across international borders without getting caught. What he didn`t give her insight into is his secret double relationship with General Orlov.
General Orlov was a valuable asset in the smuggling pipeline. Because of his connections, he was able to provide Kamal and Octopussy with the genuine treasures of the Tsars, where they then duplicated the originals with fakes. Orlov`s quest for power led him and Kamal to forge a secret alliance that used Octopussy`s Circus to smuggle a nuclear bomb on board an American Air Fore Base in then West Germany.
Kamal lived upon a remote, highly inaccesible tract of land called The Monsoon Palace. Others who lived there included his civil staff, bodyguard Gobinda, and mistress Magda. After doublecrossing Octopussy one too many times, Kamal`s palace was attacked by a bevy of beautiful women. Kamal escaped but later crashed his Piper into the side of a mountain and died in a ball of fire.
Organization: Octopussy`s Traveling Circus
Skills: Hand To Hand Combat; Fire Combat; Explosives; Breaking and Entering; Stealth; Evasion; Gymnastics; Pickpocket; Seduction
Background: A capable gymnast employed by Octopussy`s Traveling Circus, she was also experienced in Fine Arts, which made her a valuable link in the jewelry smuggling pipeline devised by Kamal and Octopussy. She was also, conviently, Kamal`s mistress.
Her involvement in the jewelry smuggling scheme came to light when she was called to Sothebys for an emergency attempt to bid on the famed Faberge Egg. Joining her at the auction was Kamal, normally a seller, not a buyer. Their no-stakes-too-high approach ensured they got the Egg, but it also drew the attention of M.I.6 who were monitoring the proceedings with their agent, James Bond, in attendance.
007 followed Kamal and Magda to Udaipur, India, where he slowly unraveled the scheme to smuggle jewelry across international borders, and in addition, detonate a nuclear bomb on an American Airbase. Magda`s involvement only extended to the smuggling aspect of the operation, and after realizing how Kamal had double crossed her and Octopussy in Germany, she set out for revenge by assisting in organizing a pre-dawn assault on the Monsoon Palace.

Method of Killing: Random
Background: Gobinda was Kamal Khan`s personal bodyguard. He was a loyal and fierce protector of his bosses interests, and played a key role in all aspects of Kamal`s organization. He was head of security for the Monsoon Palace; he attended to and organized Kamal`s palace staff; he was a link in the pipeline that smuggled jewelry across international borders and he was a key participant in placing a nuclear bomb on board Octopussy`s Traveling Circus Train, which was headed for an American Airbase in West Germany.
The loyalty to which Gobinda adhered to was amazing. When ordered to run across the tops of a speeding train, he did so. When ordered to organize an attack on Octopussy`s island, he did so. When told to go out on the wings of an airborne plane, without a parachute, to kill 007 he did so. It was in the last instance that led Gobinda to his death. While knife fighting on top of Kamal`s plane, 007 managed to thump Gobinda`s face with an antenae, causing Gobinda to lose his grip and plummet to his death. Kamal Khan later lost control of the plane and died upon impact. 007 and Octopussy survived by jumping out of the plane at just the last second.

Background: Daughter of Marc-Ange Draco and Countess Cesare di Vicenzo. An only child, she was already spoiled when the death of her mother caused her father to lavish even more gifts and indulgences upon Tracy. But in reality, what she needed was a man to help settle her down. That man was James Bond.
Bond needed some information on Draco`s main rival, Blofeld. But Draco would only help Bond out if he would agree to date Tracy. At first, Bond accepted this deal because he needed and wanted the information. Soon though he began dating Tracy simply because he`d fallen in love with her.
Tracy saved Bond`s life several times in Switzerland, when 007 tried to escape Blofeld`s clutches. After defeating Blofeld`s plans for world domination through gentically engineered viruses, Bond and Tracy were married in Portugal. The honeymoon was not meant to be. Shortly after the ceremony, Tracy was gunned down in James` car by Irma Bundt and Blofeld. Bond lived. Tracy, the love of his life, the only woman he has ever truly loved, died.

Background: 007`s most seductive, dangerous and able female counterpart. Holly is a fully trained astronuat on loan from NASA to the Drax Corporation. What The Drax Corporation didn`t know was that she`s was also working undercover for the C.I.A., investigating Drax`s ties to a biological nerve gas facility hidden away in Venice, Italy.
She came to 007`s attention when he was touring the facilities of The Drax Corporation. He was expecting Dr.Goodhead, who was to assist him on his tour, to be a man and he let her know that in not so many words. Holly though is more than capable of keeping 007`s chauvanism in check, and she comes back with a few choice words of her own.
Several of Holly`s gadgets, courtesy of the C.I.A., include a bottle of Christian Dior that serves as a minature flame thrower, a purse that doubles as a two way radio, a diary that shoots darts and an ink pen with a blade hidden inside.
Background: Manuela was Bond`s first contact in Brazil when he arrived to investigate Drax and the missing Moonraker shuttle. She was asked to assist Bond by “M”, who felt Bond could use a good guide to navigate the busy streets of Rio DeJaneiro (it was Carnival at the time).
Manuela`s gorgeous body and seductive voice make it hard for any agent to take her seriously. In fact, it didn`t take Bond 90 seconds to “get to know her better”. Still, she did help Bond investigate the Carlos and Willmsburg Warehouse.
Background: Corrine DuFour was Hugo Drax`s top personal helicoper chauffeur. She was dispatched to LAX to pick up 007, who had just arrived to investigate the missing Moonraker shuttle. Corinne also provided Bond with a brief overhead tour of Drax Industries, as well as Drax`s French Estate in the middle of the valley.
Corinne was privledged to some of the inner secrets of Drax`s personal life. In particular where he kept his safe. Corinne was a willing partner in helping 007 locate and unlock Drax`s safe and photograph sensitive documents. Unbeknownst to her, Chang, Drax`s personal bodyguard, spied her leaving Drax`s personal study with 007 late at night, and he reported what he saw immediately to Drax. The next day Corinne was summoned to Drax`s pheasant hunting fields, where she soon became the quarry. Sadly, she died at the jaws of Drax`s lethally trained Doberman Pinchers.
Background: Formerly the property of “Mr. Big”, Solitaire was cut loose from his organization and left for dead when it was discovered that she had slept with 007. Apparently her “powers” of prediction only work as long as she remained a virgin, and in 007`s presence, that virginity wasn`t going to last for very long.
Mr.Big found Solitaire in a Haitian cabaret, performing a telepathic act for the audience. He took her into his organization, with the intentions of making her his wife. She would have nothing to do with men, and that his how she got her name “Solitaire”. Her mother had certain “powers” that she herself inherited. Mr. Big was primarily interested in using Solitaire`s powers of fortune telling to help further his organizations nefarious activities. Her ability to tell Mr.Big who was lying to him, who was cheating him, etc… proved invaluable, and Big felt that when those powers had been maximized to his full advantage, he would take her abilities away by taking her virginity away through marriage. What he had not counted on was 007 entering their lives. The cards told Solitaire that she would become lovers with 007, a fact she desperately needed to hide from Mr. Big as long as possible in order to stay alive.
Solitaire was instrumental in helping bring down Mr. Big`s heroin smuggling operation. After helping 007 complete his Live and Let Die mission by destroying Mr. Big, the two enjoyed a romantic train ride together.

Background: Primarily an entertainer at San Monique tourist traps, Baron Samedi dressed as his namesake, the voodoo God of the Undead. With a top hat,white coat, tails, cross, half-painted face, and a sinister laugh, Samedi had the dual edge ability to entertain and scare people to death.
But what about his life behind the job? The Baron was one of Dr. Kananga`s right hand men. A vital link in Kananga`s scheme to control the world heroin market. How? By resurrecting the old superstition of a God of the Undead, The Baron managaed to instill fear and trepidation in the hearts of the San Monique locals. No one would dare enter or go near the poppy fields under Dr. Kananga`s control.
He was a master of the flute, but after seeing James Bond and Kananga`s mistress Solitaire ditching San Monique, the flute quickly converted into a two-way radio to alert Kananga of their presence.
But his big encounter with James Bond was yet to come. 007 had to return to San Monique to rescue a kidnapped Solitaire, all the while a voodoo ritual was going on. Samedi was summoned to the ritual with a top hat and three sword taps on an unmarked grave. He rose up from the ground. Could he be more than a henchman and an entertainer? Bond whipped out a gun and shot Samedi, who immediately shattered. No more than a mechanical clone!
Then the real Samedi rose. He laughed and pulled out a machete, as did James. After a brief sword skirmish, Samedi was thrown into a coffin of poisonous snakes and died. Or did he? MI6 Intelligence has gathered statements from several people claiming to have spotted Baron Samedi riding the engine car of the train Solitaire and 007 took to celebrate her freedom after the fact that he was supposed to have been killed. Dead? Or alive? You decide.
