Silk (or "Silky") was a fictional associate of James Bond who owned the Tassels nightclub in Bangkok, Thailand. A minor antagonist voiced by British actor, Richard Dillane, the character appeared in the 2010 James Bond video-game Blood Stone.

Biography

Forced out of numerous cities including Saigon, Athens, Ibiza and Johannesburg for his illicit dealings, Silk moved his operations to Bangkok, Thailand prior to the events of Blood Stone. There he owns and operates the Tassels nightclub. Supposedly an old friend of Bond, he is approached by the spy for information on the location of a man named Rak. Initially reluctant to just give away such precious information without compensation, he is persuaded by the protection money he could stand to save if Rak was dead. He reveals that Rak has a secret boathouse on the Chao Phraya River, but bets Bond will never make it there alive. 007 is happy to take the bet, asking Silk to add it to the money he owes him from the previous time. As 007 leaves, Silky makes a phone call, informing an unidentified individual that an Englishman is heading to see Rak and orders them not to let Bond succeed. Rak is then able to ambush and capture Bond, imprisoning him in Burma.

Silk does not appear in the Nintendo DS version of Blood Stone, resulting in an alternate account of how Rak captures Bond: after Bond chases Rak out of the aquarium where he meet Colonel Fu San Ping, whose assassination Rak watched closely, Rak stays one step ahead of the agent by commandeering and driving a truck through the streets of Bangkok and down a wrong-way road out of the city to a safe house, where he then reaches a speedboat to flee through the waters of Thailand. Bond continues to pursue Rak there by commandeering another speedboat, engaging in a machine gun duel in which Rak occasionally assaults Bond with a rocket launcher. After a proacted battle, Bond and Rak crash onto dry land. The former appears to have the upper hand in a brief, personal brawl, until Rak releases a stun gas from a canister that knocks Bond unconscious.
