Algerian boyfriend of Vesper Lynd (Eva Green)—the one she was trying to save by betraying Bond and MI6 in Casino Royale—portrayed by Simon Kassianides in Quantum of Solace. He was believed dead, washed up on a beach in Ibiza, but M (Dame Judi Dench) ordered a DNA check based on a lock of hair found in Vesper’s apartment. It was not Kabira.
