While James Bond is a first rate, top-class, super secret agent - he wouldn't get very far without help from his friends. From Felix Leiter to Tiger Tanaka, Captain Carter to Kamran Shah, and Valentin Dmitrovich Zukovsky to Raoul, Bond has had a variety of allies.
Established in Dr. No, James Bonds allies would take on a variety of guises from one-time allies through re-occurring characters with help from unlikely sources. All of James Bonds allies have assisted him in different ways and means throughout the films. Bond finds traditional help from his CIA counterpart and friend, Felix Leiter, useful resources from Marc Ange Draco’s empire, and the hidden assets of Tiger Tanaka and the Japanese Secret Service. Even the most unlikely of allies like Sheriff J.W Pepper and Dolly, have aided Bond in completing his quest.
Sadly, being associated with helping James Bond has its drawbacks. Kerim Bey, Vijay and many other allies have paid the ultimate price in providing their unique and irreplaceable talents to help James Bond. One thing however is certain; James Bond's allies will always provide him with the latest technology, intelligence and assistance when the cards are down, helping the world's most famous secret agent survive to fight another day. §
