Film biography

Gregor Karakov is a Russian politician, owner of several mines of Siberia and member of Quantum's executive board. He is an attendee of Quantum's Tierra Project meeting during a performance of Tosca in Bregenz, Austria. James Bond identifies him as a member of Quantum and uses his smart phone to create a composite image, which is transmitted to MI6. Karakov's final fate is unknown because he is not seen afterwards.



  • Although referred to as 'Gregor Karakov' by several characters in film and video game, Karakov is credited simply as "Quantum member".
  • Due to the implication in the 2015 James Bond film Spectre that the Quantum organisation was disbanded, there is a possibility that Karakov was either arrested, excommunicated, or killed by SPECTRE.
