Characters / For Your Eyes Only

Characters specific to For Your Eyes Only. For those in the entire film franchise, see here.

Melina Havelock

Played by: Carole Bouquet

The daughter of marine archaeologists who were murdered while tracking down the ATAC's whereabouts.

Milos Columbo

Played by: Chaim Topol

Kristatos' former friend and smuggling partner.

Aristotle "Ari" Kristatos

Played by: Julian Glover

A Greek smuggler planning to expand his fortune by selling the ATAC system to the KGB.

  • Affably Evil: Very suave and polite when meeting Bond prior to the Mole reveal, and maintains a polite tone even after this.
  • Beard of Evil: Sports a white goatee.
  • Big Bad: He's the man tapped by the KGB and General Gogol to recover the ATAC system after he was responsible for downing the ship it was on, and he brings Melina and Bond/MI6 into the equation and his blood feud with Columbo when he has Locque pay Gonzales to kill Melina's parents.
  • Lolicon: Implied with Bibi.
  • Karmic Death: Gets a knife in the back from the man he betrayed, Columbo, who ended the feud with his death and adopted Bibi as her new sponsor.
  • The Mole: Columbo discovered that Kristatos was this in WWII when he found out that he was a mole for the Nazis. This was made worse when Kristatos then became a mole to the Soviet Union, entered drug smuggling and managed to get into the British high ranks without them knowing he's a double agent, leading directly to the blood feud. MI6 and Bond were just as displeased as Columbo when they discovered the truth and realized he intended to turn the ATAC over to Gogol.
  • The Quisling: According to Colombo, he was a double agent during the 1950s Greek Civil War.
  • The Rival: He was friends with Columbo during World War II.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: The British gave him a King's Medal for his services during the wars, not knowing he was a double agent and is in fact working against Britain and NATO.

Bibi Dahl

Played by: Lynn-Holly Johnson

A young ice skating prodigy who is Kristatos' protégée. She has a tendency to develop crushes on men that are much older than her, including Bond.

Eric Kriegler

Played by: John Wyman

A German biathlon champion, he is also a KGB agent, in charge of helping Kristatos to retrieve the ATAC system for the Soviets.

  • Blond Guys Are Evil: Well, he's blond and on the bad guys' side. With the added bonus of being German to further the stereotype.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: At the end of the ski chase, he lifts his damaged bike and throws it at Bond.
  • Cold Sniper: With his biathlon rifle.
  • Cool Bike: Rides a Yamaha XT 500 with snow tires during the ski chase. The headlights conceal machine guns.
  • The Brute: The strongest guy in Kristatos' gang.
  • Death Glare: Just have a look at the picture...
  • Disney Villain Death: He is sent falling through a window.
  • The Dragon: To Kristatos; he's the last adversary Bond deals with in this film since Columbo chases Kristatos himself.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Bond uses the candelabra that Kriegler was using one minute earlier to hit the heavy vase Kriegler was holding, causing Kriegler to fall out the window.
  • Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy: For an alleged biathlon champion, he's a grade-A graduate. None of his shots come close to hitting Bond.
    • To be fair, it's really hard to hit a moving target, and biathlon players are trained only to hit stationary targets.
  • Shirtless Scene: When he's aboard the Havelocks' boat.

Emile Leopold Locque

Played by: Michael Gothard

A Belgian criminal and associate of Kristatos. He hired Hector Gonzales to kill Melina's parents.

Hector Gonzales

Played by: Stefan Kalipha

A Cuban hitman hired by Locque to kill Melina's parents. Melina kills him before Bond can get any bit of information (doesn't help that he's jumped by Gonzales's thugs before he can interrogate him, which happens right before Melina shoots him), though she saved Bond's life in the process and Bond had enough clues to identify Locque afterwards.

The Wheelchair villain (implied to be Ernst Stavro Blofeld)

Played by: John Hollis
Voiced by: Robert Rietty

The nameless villain of the pre-credits sequence. He is a crippled man in a wheelchair who wants to take his revenge on Bond using a remote-controlled helicopter as a trap after the latter's visit to Tracy's grave.

The producers were unable to name him "Ernst Stavro Blofeld" but Bond's visit to Tracy's grave, the baldness and crippling condition of the character (which might have resulted from the exploding oil rig at the end of Diamonds Are Forever, alternatively from his tree crash in On Her Majesty's Secret Service, given the neck brace) as well as his white Persian Right-Hand Cat leave no serious doubt about his real identity.

Margaret Thatcher

Played by: Janet Brown

Yes, the British Prime Minister. She appears in the closing scene alongside her husband Denis (John Wells). She is patched by Bill Tanner, Sir Frederick Gray and Q through a transmitter in Bond's watch, via a secure satellite link. She thanks Bond for his efforts to protect the nation but Bond has left his watch next to Melina's parrot which says "Give us a kiss" to her. She does not realize that a parrot is talking to her.
