Background: Felix Leiter was one of the CIA`s best agents until a fateful encounter with a shark sidelined him. In the novels he first met Bond in the south of France at the Casino des Royale. Together they worked on bankrupting the gregarious SMERSH agent LeChiffre. In the films, he first met Bond when 007 went to Crab Key to take on Dr.No. In both cases, Leiter and Bond became fast, good friends, with Bond even serving as best man at Leiter`s wedding to Della Churchill; a wedding that would never see it`s final realization. Before Leiter and Della could begin their honeymoon, drug Lord Franz Sanchez extracted a horrific revenge on the two by murdering Della and allowing a shark to gnaw away at Felix. Leiter survived the attack and now works for Pinkertons.
