Kerim Bey is a fictional head of MI6 station 'T' in Istanbul, Turkey who appeared in the 2015 video-game James Bond: World of Espionage. The character is a re-imagining of the literary and film character who first appeared in Ian Fleming's 1957 novel From Russia with Love and was subsequently adapted for EON Productions' 1963 James Bond film of the same name.
Head of MI6 station 'T' in Istanbul, the giant Kerim Bey is as generous and magnanimous a man as can be found upon the earth. His loyalty and kindness are matched by a fierce devotion to his family that cannot be shaken by any kind of threat.
After returning from the Alps with a mysterious cryptographic hash function, a Russian defector named Tatiana Romanova approaches MI6's Turkish station, claiming that she can provide MI6 with a cypher which decodes the message. However, she will only defect to Bond, with whom she has allegedly become besotted. 007 flies to Istanbul, where he meets with station head Kerim Bey. The pair narrowly escape an assassination attempt on Kerim's life. The station head suspects the FSB of planting the bomb in his office and uses a secret underground tunnel to spy on them. There, the pair discover that Kerim's old enemy, Krilencu was behind the bombing. Later that evening, 007 accompanies Kerim to the camp of his gypsy friends and judges a dispute between two women. There, Krilencu shoots Kerim and flees. Bond aids his wounded friend to exact revenge and the pair assassinate him.
