Characters specific to On Her Majesty's Secret Service. For those in the entire film franchise, see here.

Teresa "Tracy" Draco di Vincenzo Bond

Played by: Diana Rigg

A socialite with a taste for mischief, Bond first meets Tracy in the opening of the film as she's about to commit suicide by walking into the ocean. Bond saves her life and later her father, the head of the Corsican Mafia, asks him to court her in exchange for information on Blofeld. They eventually fall in love for real and marry at the end of the film. Tragically, right after their wedding Tracy is killed by a bullet to the head fired from a speeding car by Blofeld and his henchwoman Irma Bunt.

  • Action Girl: Of the civilian Bond Girls, Tracy is by far the most adventurous, fearless, and resourceful, pulling off multiple stunts and even fending off a few mooks.
  • Affectionate Nickname:
    Teresa is a saint, I'm known as Tracy.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Arrives just in time in Switzerland to save Bond with her driving talents.
  • Blue Blood: She inherited the title of "Countess di Vincenzo" from her previous husband.
  • Broken Bird: Her first husband died shortly after leaving her for another woman, and her daughter died of spinal meningitis, leaving Tracy in this state.
  • Damsel in Distress: Though she manages to kill the mook who was watching over her before Bond and her father's men can rescue her.

Ernst Stavro Blofeld

Played by: Telly Savalas

Bond's archnemesis and leader of SPECTRE. He is hiding atop Piz Gloria in the Swiss Alps.

  • Archenemy: This is the movie that cements his status as Bond's arch foe. The film starts with Bond having spent two years trying to hunt him down, and it ends with Blofeld orchestrating the murder of Bond's wife.
  • Blue Blood: He claims the title of 'Comte Balthazar de Bleuchamp' to disguise himself. Though snobbery is also a factor; recognition of the title on his retirement is even a condition of his Evil Plan. Possible a subversion, though, since its implied he is trying to con his way into the title.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: He cut his own earlobes.
  • Karma Houdini: Not totally, as he has broken his neck and lost a lot of money and resources by the end of the movie, but he manages to escape justice.
  • Mad Scientist: He involves himself in the conception of the virus he plans to unleash.
  • Sinister Schnoz: One of Telly Savalas' trademark features.
  • Supervillain Lair: A fortress atop Piz Gloria in Switzerland. The business cover of it takes the form of a clinical allergy-research institute.
  • Took a Level in Badass: This time he is more involved in the field work of SPECTRE and takes part to the chase against Bond.

  • Apron Matron: To Blofeld's young female patients ("Death Angels").
  • Karma Houdini: Unlike most Dragons in the franchise, Bond never has a chance to kill her.
