PATRICE

Entry Source: The James Bond Movie Encyclopedia by Steven Jay Rubin


SPECTRE agent, portrayed by Ola Rapace, who leads Bond (Daniel Craig) on a deadly chase across Istanbul and Turkey in Skyfall. With a stolen hard drive in his possession that can expose NATO agents embedded in terrorist groups around the world, Patrice makes it to a moving train, where he engages in a titanic battle with Bond until Eve Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) accidentally shoots 007 off the train.

Referred to as a “ghost” in intelligence circles, Patrice has no known residence. The CIA has been chasing him for the murder of the Yemini ambassador. MI6 analyzed the shell fragments fired by Patrice, identifying them as depleted uranium shells—military grade, hard to get, and extremely expensive. Once recovered and returned to duty, Bond tracks Patrice to Shanghai, China, where 007 liquidates him after Patrice knocks off a prominent executive. He retrieves a gaming chip off the body, which leads Bond to Macao, where Bond redeems that one chip for 4 million Euros.
