Would Grant qualify as a Chessmaster or Manipulative Bastard? Here's why I say so:

Sets up the "kill Krilencu" subplot by killing the Russian agent's driver, knowing that Krilencu would bomb Kerim's office.

Follows Bond and Kerim to the gypsy camp, saving Bond's life and making sure he makes his "appointment" with Tatiana.

Kills the Russian agent when he tries to seize Tania's sketch.

Derails Bond's plan to escape by killing Kerim and Benz and compromising the secrecy of Bond's mission (murders on the Orient Express, anyone?)

Kills Nash at Zagreb, impersonates him, and mostly fools Bond until the latter has a gun pointed at him.

Most of these actions are by his initiative.
