Gregor Karakov is a fictional Russian politician and an high-ranking member of the secretive criminal organization, Quantum.

Biography

Gregor Karakov is a Russian politician, owner of several mines of Siberia but also a member of Quantum's executive board. He was one of several peoples attending a meeting during a performance of Tosca at an opera house in Bregenz, Austria. The primary issue on their agenda was the Tierra Project - a scheme to establish political and financial dominance of Bolivia by illicitly buying up the rights to their limited water supply, gaining a monopoly, and installing an amenable puppet dictator. However, James Bond crashes their meeting and identifies Karakov as a member of Quantum by using his smartphone to create a composite image, which is transmitted to MI6. Along with most of the hierarchy, the man promptly flees the auditorium and is not seen again, leaving his fate unknown.

Trivia

  • Although referred to as 'Gregor Karakov' by several characters in film and video game, Karakov is credited simply as "Quantum member".
  • Due to the implication in the 2015 James Bond film Spectre that the Quantum organisation was disbanded, there is a possibility that Karakov was either arrested, excommunicated, or killed by SPECTRE.
