Kratt was a fictional subordinate of terrorist financier, Le Chiffre. Based on Ian Fleming's literary character, he was a supporting antagonist portrayed by German actor Clemens Schick, the character appeared in the 2006 James Bond film, Casino Royale. Schick also subsequently lent his likeness for the character's appearance in the 2008 video-game adaptation of Quantum of Solace.


Kratt was right-hand man to Le Chiffre, private banker to terrorist groups around the globe. In 2006, he accompanied his employer to Uganda for a meeting with terrorist leader Steven Obanno. Arranged by SPECTRE intermediaries, Obanno entrusts Le Chiffre with a large sum of money to invest safely for him; Le Chiffre instead uses it to gamble on the failure of the aerospace manufacturer, Skyfleet. On the evening of July 6th, Kratt is present in the Bahamas on-board Le Chiffre's luxury yacht, as the banker plays Poker with Madam Wu and an unidentified General. Kratt informs Le Chiffre that the bomb maker he had hired to destroy the Skyfleet's prototype aircraft was shot by a British agent. The following evening, Kratt is present during a heated meeting with the man who supplied the dead terrorist: Alex Dimitrios. They come to an agreement and Dimitrios contracts another bomber, but he also fails to destroy the plane.

Le Chiffre attempts to recoup the losses through a high-stakes poker game at the Casino Royale in Montenegro. Kratt is part of Le Chiffre's entourage and spectates during the game. After Bond wins the tournament, the villains kidnap his Treasury liaison, Vesper Lynd. 007 pursues them in his Aston Martin DBS V12, but loses control and crashes after Le Chiffre leaves the bound woman in the middle of the road. Using his switch blade, Kratt cuts a tracking device from Bond's arm and they bring him to a nearby tramp steamer. The henchman later prepares 007 for torture, cutting the seat from a cane-bottomed chair, stripping him, and binding him to it. Kratt finally goes into another room to deal with Vesper, as Le Chiffre tortures the spy. Shortly afterwards, Kratt and the remaining entourage are shot to death off-screen by Mr. White.



  • It is unknown if Kratt and any of Le Chiffre's men also worked for SPECTRE or even Quantum.
