Alec Trevelyan

A British spy turned Russian Mafia head, Alec Trevelyan (played by Sean Bean) once worked for MI6 as 006, but defected to a life of crime during a mission with 007 in a Russian nerve gas factory. The son of Cossacks, his parents dead, he felt betrayed and rejected by his adopted homeland, and blames Bond for facial scars sustained in an earlier mission. Nine years later, he masterminds a villainous plan to rob the Bank of England of huge amounts of cash before destroying the nation's capital with the Goldeneye satellite. His downfall is engineered and executed ruthlessly by Bond.

"I might as well ask you if all those vodka martinis drown out the screams of the men you've killed, or if you find forgiveness in the arms of all those willing women for the dead ones you failed to protect."



Boris Grishenko

A rather sad computer hacker with an interesting taste in shorts, Boris (played by Alan Cumming) uses his computer skills to carry out a series of cyber-thefts from major British institutions before Alec Trevelyan uses the Goldeneye satellite to wipe out all records stored in London.
