Whilst Bond is at Shrublands he meets Count Lippe and spots his rather interesting red tattoo on his arm.
Later Lippe tries to kill Bond whilst he is on the traction table by sending the table into full speed. Luckily Patricia Fearing manages to rescue him, and he manages to get his own back when he later traps Lippe inside a steam machine.
Later when Bond discovers Major Derval's dead body, he thwarts another assassination attempt from Lippe. When Bond leaves Shrublands, Lippe rather blandly fires a couple of rounds at 007 in his Aston Martin. Before Bond can use any of the Aston's gadgets, Fiona Volpe arrives on the scene riding the BSA Lightning motorcycle on which she fires two missiles into Count Lippe's car eliminating him.
Count Lippe another SPECTRE agent, is involved with Fiona Volpe and Angelo Palazzi in the plot to kill Major Francois Derval and replace him with Angelo Palazzi, a double of Derval who has undertook extensive plastic surgery. An impatient character, all Lippe's attempts to kill Bond are unsuccessful, resulting in him paying the ultimate price for failure when Fiona Volpe kills him. §
