Characters specific to [[Literature/FromRussiaWithLove the novel]] and Film/JamesBond film ''Film/FromRussiaWithLove''. For those in the entire film franchise, see [[Characters/JamesBond here]].

!The Novel
[[folder:General G]]
!!General Nicholai Sergenovich Grubozaboyschikov (G)
[[caption-width-right:300: ''"There will be...displeasure."'']]

The only major character to be exclusive to the book, "G" is the Director of SMERSH who is feared by every agent of Soviet Intelligence. He is also Klebb and Grant's superior in the novel and charges them to both eliminate and humiliate James Bond for his past foilings of SMERSH plots.
* AdaptedOut: He is replaced by Blofeld in the film, as SMERSH is replaced by SPECTRE.
* BaldOfEvil: His head is as shiny as a bleached skull, making his appear even more terrifying.
* BigOlEyebrows: Sports a pair, which also adds to the intimidation factor.
* ClusterFBomb: Bombards the assembled intelligence generals with Russian swear words when they only bring up Bond halfway through the meeting, starting with the Russian "Holy shit!"
* CutHisHeartOutWithASpoon: He and his fellow intelligence big shots brainstorm a lot of creative deaths for Bond, before ultimately deciding on assassinating him and framing him for a sex scandal.
* DanBrowned: Fleming's introduction insists he was a real person and really ran SMERSH at the time the novel was set. In fact, the real SMERSH never lasted beyond UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, and G never existed.
* TheDragon: He is mentioned to be the personal attack dog of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivan_Serov General Ivan Serov]], the ultimate head of Soviet Intelligence, who, unlike G, really did exist.
* DragonInChief
* TheDreaded: The heads of all the other branches of Soviet Intelligence - KGB, GRU, and RUMID - fear Grubozaboyschikov, He is well aware of this and watches all the others for signs of weakness when they have meetings, which he then in turn snitches on to Serov.
* EvilCounterpart: To M, being a spy chief with a single letter for a codename.
* GreaterScopeVillain: He is Klebb and Grant's commander, but otherwise has no part in their plot. In turn, Ivan Serov would be the GreaterScopeVillain to him, and Nikita Khrushchev to ''him''.
* OverlyLongName: No wonder he goes by "G."
* PutOnABus: ''Literature/TriggerMortis'' briefly mentions that he's gone into hiding after the death of Red Grant and the failure of the mission, with a new man replacing him as head of SMERSH. His fate is unknown to MI6, however.
* TheSpymaster: One of four the Soviet Union has, and the most dangerous by far.
* TheUnfought: Bond only climbs the SortingAlgorithmOfEvil as far as Klebb; he never meets G.
* VillainProtagonist: He is the viewpoint character for chapters four through six.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: He keeps watch to see if any of the other intelligence branch heads' usefulness may be wearing thin.

[[folder:Red Grant]]
!!Donovan "Red" Grant
%%[[caption-width-right:300:some caption text]]

->''"Clever, aren't you, Mister Secret Service? Think I'm barmy. Don't worry. I wouldn't be where I was if I was barmy."''

* AxCrazy: Submachine gun crazy, actually, as far as his favoured execution method is to go by.
* DirtyCommunists: In the book version, he defected to SMERSH just so he could become a [[PsychoForHire paid assassin]] as compared to [[SerialKiller killing them for free]] like he did before.
* TheDragon: For General G.
* DumbBlonde: Subverted. While he doesn't seem like the sharpest tool in the shed (for starters, he mixed up Irish history with ''Russian propaganda slogans'' during training), he's actually able to do things that other ''Bond'' villain henchmen are completely incapable of (like use stealth or hold down a cover). Grant also failed his written courses in training, but was otherwise great at code breaking, stalking, tracking, communications and graduated top of his class, a far cry from when he was near the very bottom at the start.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Still gregariously refers to Bond as "old man" after outing himself as an agent of SMERSH.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Killed with his own gun. This is ironic because the plan was to kill Bond with his own (Bond's) gun.
* {{Lunacy}}: His killing urges coincide with the full moon.
* PopCulturedBadass: He peppers his monologues to Bond with casual references to classic spy thrillers, such as Literature/BulldogDrummond. He's also got several thrillers and pulp fiction works lining his bookshelf in the beginning of the book.
* PsychoForHire: While he tries to claim to Bond that he's not "barmy", he is in fact a serial killer (stemming from advanced case of manic-depressive disorder) working for Soviets, whose only concern about his mindset are about directing it to proper targets.
* RedRightHand: Almost literally-- his reddish skin tone is noted as marring what are otherwise extremely handsome physical features, giving a clue to his nature.
* SerialKiller: He committed hundreds of murders in his hometown, mostly during a full moon, and barely got away when a giant manhunt started. However, nobody found out that the killer was him.
* TooSpicyForYogSothoth:
** Everyone he works for is absolutely terrified of him. Even when he first meets a Soviet colonel after defecting from the British military, the colonel is internally uneasy and seriously considering having Grant shot.
** SMERSH also consider killing Grant straight off, but decide that a psychotic killer is useful as he won't suffer the VillainousBreakdown that normal people do when killing large numbers of people over a long period of time. They keep tight control of Grant during his lunatic phases, just using him for executions instead of missions.
* VillainProtagonist: He is the viewpoint character for the first three chapters of the book.

!The Film
[[folder:Kerim Bey]]
!!Ali Kerim Bey
[[caption-width-right:300: ''"Ah, the old game: give a wolf a taste and then leave him hungry."'']]
!!! '''Played by:''' Pedro Armendáriz

->''"The Iron Crab will get me as it got my father. But I am not afraid of The Crab. At least I shall have died from an honourable disease. Perhaps they will put on my tombstone 'This Man Died From Living Too Much'."''
-->-- ''Literature/FromRussiaWithLove''

A former circus strongman, he is [=MI6=]'s head of Station T in Istanbul. He is a wise, good natured man whom Bond immediately takes a liking to.
* AbusiveParents: We get to learn his rather twisted backstory in the book. His father was a brutish man who stole other men's wives and thrashed his kids for discipline. Nevertheless his community respected him (as does Kerim in an odd way) due to being a poor village that prized strength.
* AdaptationalHeroism: Calling Kerim's character in the book a "bad guy" is probably a stretch, but the film still omits most of his less savory character traits, most infamously his cheery endorsement of the NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization.
* AdaptationNameChange: His given name was changed from "Darko" to "Ali" in the film, possibly because the context of "Darko" ([[UnfortunateNames it's exactly]] [[DarkIsEvil what you]] [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast think it is]]) would be uncomfortable even for 1963.
* BadassMustache: A badass with a moustache.
* CoolOldGuy: A cool guy, and Armendáriz's age was showing.
* FamilyBusiness: Most of his employees are his sons (and he has a lot).
* TheHedonist: One gets the distinct impression that if the government were to pay him to wallow in wine and women all day, he'd jump at the chance. As it stands, though, he's very good at what he does.
* InTheBack: How Grant kills him.
* TheLancer: To Bond.
* ThePatriarch: Exclusively employs family members, reasoning they're the only people you can trust in the spying business. This, of course, has the side effect of him being at least as promiscuous as Bond is.
* {{Pornstache}}: Look at the picture.
* ReallyGetsAround: Probably the only Bond character who gets more than Bond. This is a matter of necessity, as a large family means a lot of underlings who are guarenteed to be loyal to him.
-->'''Kerim:''' [''about to sleep with his mistress''] Back to the salt mines...
* SacrificialLion: Killed by Grant on the Orient Express.
* ThisIsSomethingHesGotToDoHimself: Even though his arm is injured he insists on pulling the trigger on Bond's sniper rifle to kill his old enemy, the Bulgarian agent Krilencu.
* UnscrupulousHero: He's sexist, hedonistic, and willing to do all sorts of dubiously-moral deeds, but is also the most loyal and competent intelligence agent in Turkey. Bond would later encounter similar "bad good guy" characters such as [[Film/OnHerMajestysSecretService Marc-Ange Draco]] and [[Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice Tiger Tanaka]].

[[folder:Tatiana Romanova]]
!!Tatiana "Tania" Romanova
[[caption-width-right:300: ''"The mechanism is... Oh James, James... Will you make love to me all the time in England?"'']]
!!! '''Played by:''' Daniela Bianchi

->''"I am glad you have come back, James. And now we must eat and drink and start our lives again."''
-->-- ''Literature/FromRussiaWithLove''

A corporal in Soviet Army Intelligence, assigned to work in the Soviet Embassy in Istanbul as a cipher clerk. Because of her beauty, Rosa Klebb assigns her the mission of seducing Bond and having him take her to England to deliver a LEKTOR code machine.
* AdaptationDyeJob: She's a brunette in the book.
* AffectionateNickname: Her friends call her "Tania".
* FakeDefector: This is what she believed her mission was, but turns out that she's a pawn on SPECTRE'S bigger plan, as seen in UnwittingPawn.
* GirlOfTheWeek: The Bond Girl for this film.
* MsFanservice: Rosa Klebb chooses her specifically because she's the most attractive agent at her disposal to lure Bond. And most of Tania's screentime has her in nighties later on.
* NiceGirl: She is genuinely pleasant and friendly.
* ReadyForLovemaking: Her intro to Bond (which was used to audition the Bond Girls by the producers).
* SameLanguageDub: Her English was fine, but Bianchi's thick Italian accent wasn't.
* SensualSlavs: A sensual Russian woman stationed in Istanbul.
* SexFaceTurn: Bond rogered her and she couldn't resist his charms.
* SexySecretary: Sexy Soviet ''cipher clerk''.
* ShesGotLegs: Bond is using a periscope installed under the Soviet embassy to spy on a meeting inside, when she enters. He can't see her face from his angle, but what he can see impresses him greatly.
-->'''Karim Bey:''' How does she look to you?
-->'''James Bond:''' Well from this angle, [[DoubleEntendre things are shaping up nicely]].
* StockingFiller: She wears black silk stockings (as per the original scene in the novel) as part of her outfit to seduce Bond. They're only very briefly seen in the movie as released, but there are a number of photos of Daniela Bianchi (as Tatiana) wearing these stockings in the screen-test version of the scene, notably when Bond pulls the bedsheet off Tatiana to reveal her stockinged legs.
* TropeCodifier: Her bedroom encounter with James is used to screen-test future Bonds and Bond Girls.
* UnwittingPawn: She carries out the mission given to her by Rosa Klebb thinking that Klebb's still from the Soviet government, without realizing that Klebb has long ago defected to SPECTRE and that she ordered Red Grant to kill her and Bond and then make it look like it was a murder-suicide.

[[folder:Red Grant]]
!!Donald "Red" Grant
[[caption-width-right:300:''"You may know the right wines, but you're the one on your knees. How does it feel, old man?"'']]
!!! '''Played by:''' Robert Shaw

Along with Oddjob, Baron Samedi and Jaws, he is one of the most iconic Bond villain henchmen. Grant is a tall, burly, blonde SPECTRE agent (SMERSH in the books) and a sadistic, ruthless and psychotic killer. Grant's backstory in the movie and book are completely different but both effectively amount to: "''This is a horrible person you don't want to mess with''".
* AdaptationalNameChange: His first name was changed from Donovan to Donald.
* AloneWithThePsycho: Again, one of the only times Bond is totally gotten the drop on by an enemy.
* BadassNormal: Unlike later notable Bond henchmen, he doesn't have any fancy gimmicks or superhuman attributes. Unlike GiantMook guys like Hans or Kriegler, he's not even noticeably larger than Bond either (in fact, Robert Shaw was shorter than Sean Connery). He's just a ruthless, extremely efficient covert operative, [[EvilCounterpart just like Bond himself]].
* BondVillainStupidity: Robert Shaw's chilling, brilliant performance obscures the fact that Grant may be the single most JustForFun/{{egregious}} example in the entire series. For once, [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim shooting Bond]] is the actual plan, but Grant manages to muck it up with an inexcusable bout of EvilGloating and JustBetweenYouAndMe. Further, after revealing to Bond that he's going to kill him and Tatiana and make it look like Bond committed murder-suicide, Grant [[EvilGloating gloats]], "The first one [bullet] won't kill you. Not the second. Not even the third. Not till you crawl over here and kiss my foot!" Of course, if Grant had succeeded in doing this, with four or more bullets in Bond's dead body, [[WhatAnIdiot it wouldn't look like a suicide]]. {{Justified|Trope}} in that its mentioned he used to be in an insane asylum--beneath his seemingly professional exterior, [[AxCrazy he's just a homicidal lunatic]]. Also, Blofeld explicitly mentions that he wants Bond's death particularly humiliating and painful which fits Grant's methods in the scene pretty solidly so he might just be following orders.
* TheBrute: Just pointing it out in case that the other tropes didn't make it clear.
* TheDragon: For Rosa Klebb and Blofeld.
* DragonInChief: He's just as smart as Klebb and is a match for Bond in combat; Klebb doesn't do much other than recruit Grant and Tania, film Bond and Tania and attempt to take the Lektor herself at the end of the film, getting owned by a chair-wielding Bond in the process before Tania shoots her. After he was killed with about 20 minutes left in the film, the only obstacle left was the helicopter {{Mooks}}, while the boats were called in last-minute.
* EvilCounterpart: To Bond. Both are highly skilled operatives who loyally serve a shadowy organization, equally skilled in combat and make good use of gadgets; Grant has a watch concealing a garrote and Bond has the suitcase, among others.
* EvilGloating: Lampshaded:
-->I don't mind talking. I get a kick out of watching the ''great'' James Bond find out what a bloody fool he's been making of himself.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Still gregariously refers to Bond as "old man" after outing himself as an agent of SPECTRE.
* FatalFlaw: His greed proves to be this in the film. For all the BondVillainStupidity mentioned elsewhere, none of it would actually have mattered if Bond hadn't been able to dupe him into trying to steal the fifty gold sovereigns from one of the two field equipment briefcases, which causes him to unwittingly activate a tear gas cartridge that gives Bond the opening he needs to take it down.
* GeniusBruiser: He's quite the ManipulativeBastard.
** Sets up the entire Krilencu subplot by killing a Russian agent's driver, knowing that Krilencu would try to bomb Kerim's office.
** Follows Bond and Kerim to the gypsy camp, where he saves Bond's life from an attack from behind. This ensures that after Kerim kills Krilencu, Bond would return to his hotel, where he would meet Tanya. They would be filmed by Klebb
** Ensures that Bond gets Tania's map by killing the Russian agent who gets his hands on it.
** Compromises the secrecy of Bond's escape by killing Kerim and Benz (a Russian security agent who follows Bond, Kerim and Tania onto the train and is overpowered by the former two), forcing Bond to send for another agent, whom he kills and impersonates (Captain Nash). Bond is entirely fooled until Grant has pulled a gun on him.
* {{Greed}}: His AchillesHeel in the film.
* TheHeavy: He drives [=SPECTRE=]'s actions from when Bond arrives in Istanbul to the Orient Express.
* HeroKiller: His task is to ''kill James Bond'', so we already know he's going to be dangerous. Grant kills agents on both sides of the Cold War left and right, but he cements his status as a HeroKiller when he kills Kerim on the Orient Express.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Killed with his own garrote. This is ironic because the plan was to kill Bond with his own (Bond's) gun.
* KarmicDeath:
** Killed going for some gold coins.
** Also getting choked out by his own garrote.
* MadeOfIron: Doesn't flinch when hit by a pair of brass knuckles. This is a slight exaggeration from the book, where he doubles over slightly and stands upright again, looking pissed, from a blow that the narration notes would have left any normal man cringing helplessly on the floor.
* MasterActor: Impersonates a [=MI6=] agent (Captain Nash) by adopting an upper-class accent, as well as the man's hat and traveling case. Bond is entirely fooled until Grant has him at gunpoint. Downplayed in the book, where Bond is still fooled by the impersonation, but senses ''something'' is badly wrong.
* MrFanservice: Practically alone amongst male Bond villains, Grant is actually incredibly handsome.
* PaperThinDisguise: His disguise as Captain Nash in the film is simply Nash's hat, briefcase, and an upper-class English accent. ''And it works. On Bond.'' In the book, it's a little more complicated, with a macintosh and suit and special tie, but it still works on Bond.
* PopCulturedBadass: In the book, he peppers his monologues to Bond with casual references to classic spy thrillers, such as Literature/BulldogDrummond. He's also got several thrillers and pulp fiction works lining his bookshelf in the beginning of the book.
* PsychoForHire: He's a homicidal paranoiac on the service of a criminal organization.
* TheQuietOne: Bordering on TheVoiceless. He does not speak for most of the movie, and when he finally does, it's to imitate someone he has just murdered.
** Ironically, once he starts talking for real in his last scene, he won't shut up.
* {{Sadist}}: As shown with the aforementioned "Kiss my foot!" line and, if you look closely, you can see a smile on his face as he prepares to use his garrote on Bond.
* WeaponOfChoice: His garrote, which is concealed in his watch. Bond uses this to strangle him to death.

[[folder:Rosa Klebb]]
!!Colonel Rosa Klebb / SPECTRE Number Three
[[caption-width-right:300: ''"Come, come, my dear. You're very fortunate to have been chosen for such a simple, delightful duty."'']]
!!! '''Played by:''' Lotte Lenya

->''"Stop that nonsense. In five minutes I could have those names from you, or anything else I wish to know. You are playing a dangerous game with me, Comrade. My patience will not last forever."''
-->-- ''Literature/FromRussiaWithLove''

In the movie, Rosa Klebb is depicted as a former SMERSH agent who has defected to become a member of SPECTRE (Blofeld refers to her as "Number 3"). She uses Kronsteen's plans to obtain the Lektor and kill Bond. She deceives Tatiana Romanova into helping Bond steal the Lektor, and then sends Red Grant to kill Bond and recover it.
* TheBaroness: An iconic example.
* BigBad: [[DragonInChief While she is working under Blofeld]], [[TheHeavy she is still the primary villain of this movie]].
* BlofeldPloy: She's spared and given a last chance.
* BusCrash: She actually survives the end of the book, and is arrested by the Deuxieme Bureau. At the beginning of ''Literature/DrNo'', it's offhandedly mentioned she died in prison, and she is then never brought up again. Even the cause of her death is unrevealed.
* CoDragons: With Kronsteen.
* TheDarkChick
* DepravedBisexual: She apparently had an affair with Spanish Communist leader [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrés_Nin Andrés Nin]] (a historical figure), but was also pretty blatantly coming on to Tatiana.
* DirtyOldWoman: Implied to be a [[PsychoLesbian depraved lesbian]].
* EvenEvilHasStandards: She was visibly terrified and sweating when Blofeld ordered the death of Kronsteen.
* EvilRedhead: Evil and has red hair.
* FanDisservice: We get to read a description of her in her lingerie in the book. ''Eeeeew''.
* GonkyFemme: She is described in quite ugly terms in the book, but when Tatiana is ordered to report to Klebb's apartment for a late night briefing, Klebb is dressed in a babydoll-ish nightie and giggly tries to seduce Tatiana.
* TheHeavy: Answers to Number One, but acts as the functional BigBad.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Shot by her own henchwoman in the climax.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: The famous [[TrickedOutShoes spring-loaded knife-tipped shoe]] she uses against Bond.
* KarmicDeath: Shot through the heart by her own protege, who had ''really'' fallen for the man she had groomed her to fake falling for.
* OlderThanTheyLook: In the book, she's mentioned to be in her forties, but look much older, presumably because she's evil or something.
* PsychoLesbian: Her sexuality is kept ambiguous in the film but there's some hints towards it. Not so much in the book, in which... well, it's a lot more overt.
* RedRightHand: Not a disfigurement or anything, but she's said to look elderly despite being only middle-aged. Why is never explained.
* RenegadeRussian: Defected from SMERSH in the movie. Totally loyal in the book.
* RoomDisservice[=/=]JanitorImpersonationInfiltration: Her last gambit to kill Bond and steal the McGuffin is to disguise herself as a hotel maid.
* TortureTechnician: Rumored to be this in the book, and a scarily effective one at that.
* VillainousBreakdown: She's mostly calm throughout the movie, until she fights Bond, where's she's a terrible wreck. Justified in that if she fails to kill Bond and get the Lektor, she'll end up like Kronsteen.

!!Tov Kronsteen / SPECTRE Number Five
[[caption-width-right:300:''"I have anticipated every possible variation of counter move."'']]
!!! '''Played by:''' Vladek Sheybal

->''"I shall proceed to devise such a trap. For the present, I can only say that if the bait is successful in attracting its prey, we are then likely to require an assassin with a perfect command of the English language."''
-->-- ''Literature/FromRussiaWithLove''

The head of planning for SPECTRE, and a high-ranking SMERSH agent in the book. He devised a plan to lure James Bond into Turkey and then kill him, humiliating the British government and getting revenge for the death of Dr. No. In the film, when the plan fails, he is killed with a spring-loaded, poison-tipped knife concealed in a shoe.
* AdaptationalVillainy: He's not a nice man in the book, but he's still [[PunchClockVillain just a Soviet Colonel doing his job]]. The film makes him into a board member for the world's most powerful terrorism-for-hire organization and gives him about a million levels in [[SmugSnake smugness]].
* AmbiguouslyJewish: He has a first name in the novel, "Tov", which is a Jewish name.
* BlofeldPloy: Blofeld's first victim; it looks like Klebb will get the poison-knife kick, only for Morzeny to kick Kronsteen instead.
* TheChessmaster: He is SPECTRE's chief [[TheStrategist strategist]], and also a literal chess master. In the novel, he loves chess to the point of risking his life by refusing to head to a meeting in the final minutes of a chess match that would let him become Champion of Moscow for the third time.
* CoDragons: With Rosa Klebb.
* DeathByAdaptation: He doesn't die in the book.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: In the movie, we're first introduced to him in the middle of a chess match. When he received the message from SPECTRE to report in at once, he very calmly disposes of the message, and then very calmly ''crushes'' his opponent with a single move. It demonstrates the reasons he's so dangerous: not only is he very smart, but he loves to toy with his opponents and have a little fun with them. When he's done screwing around, heads roll.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Averted, actually; it's mentioned that he has a wife and children in the book, but his years as a merciless Soviet intelligence agent has left him unable to see them, or anyone, really, as anything other than pieces on a chessboard.
* EvilGenius: The mastermind behind the Lektor decoder plot.
* FatalFlaw: [[SmugSnake Arrogance]] and his status as the KnowNothingKnowItAll bring him down in the movie. His failure to obtain the facts about Q Branch and the fact that he wasn't prepared for Bond came back to bite him dearly.
* FamousLastWords: The quote above is the last thing he says before Morzeny kills him.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Although he's blatantly trying to throw Klebb under the bus, Kronsteen isn't wrong when he suggests that it was the failure of Klebb's man Grant that led to the EvilPlan failing (of course, neither he nor Klebb or even Blofeld were aware of this).
* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Deconstructed, as his failure to obtain the facts about Q Branch and the fact that he wasn't prepared for Bond comes back to bite him dearly.
* NeverMyFault: Denies any responsibility in the failure of the plot to kill Bond and obtain the Lektor. In Kronsteen's defense, it was actually Grant's fault, but all any of them knew was that Grant had been killed while Bond escaped, so the trope still applies to an extent.
* {{Pride}}: This is his FatalFlaw and [[YouHaveFailedMe it costs him dearly]], when his plans to kill Bond and get the Lektor fail.
* SmartPeoplePlayChess: A literal chessmaster in both the book and the film, ''and'' [=SPECTRE's=] chief [[TheChessmaster strategist]].
* SmugSnake: Excessively arrogant in the film, to the point where not even Klebb likes him.
* TheStrategist: The brain behind the SPECTRE operation to get rid of Bond and acquire a Soviet coding machine.
* UnderestimatingBadassery: Kronsteen wasn't prepared for Bond, and missing the facts about Q Branch, a part of MI6 he didn't research, [[YouHaveFailedMe earns him a poisoned dagger in the leg]].
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: In the book, he's a famous Russian chess champion and has enough admirers to rival any star athlete's. He even has his own nickname, the "[[RedBaron Wizard of Ice]]".
* WickedCultured: A member of SMERSH in the novel and SPECTRE in the movie, and a chess prodigy who has enough admirers.
* WouldHurtAChild: Suggested in the book, depending on what he meant by having to "put a child into hospital" to support his story that one of his children had fallen gravely ill to force him to leave a chess championship as quickly as he did, although all this is because he's mortally ''terrified'' of what the office might do to him simply for not leaving ''immediately'' (as opposed to staying long enough to finish the game) without one ''hell'' of an excuse.
* YouHaveFailedMe: Blofeld has him killed when his plan to assassinate Bond and obtain the Lektor fails.

[[caption-width-right:300:''"Grant's one of our best men. Homicidal paranoiac, superb material. His response to our training and indoctrination have been remarkable."'']]
!!! '''Played by:''' Creator/WalterGotell

The in charge of training the SPECTRE mooks. He will also step in for ground operations when needed.

* DrillSergeantNasty: Runs the training facility for SPECTRE {{mooks}}.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Has an X-shaped scar on the left side of his face.
* ManOnFire: Dies when he and his men are engulfed in flames created by Bond during the boat chase (and the actor actually had burns while shooting).

* WeHaveReserves: Likes to use "live targets" for training. Just ask the faux James Bond in the opening sequence.
