After a long hiatus of things happening in real life and grabbing more Savaged ammo, what better way to jump back in than to run with Daniel Craig's James Bond? This is as of Skyfall, and will be updated after I see Spectre (the next announced in the series).

An orphan recruited into MI6, James Bond is one of the world's top secret agents, toppling criminal empires and keeping the world safe from megalomaniacs and terrorists. After serving in the British Special Forces for a stretch, he was recruited into his position as super-spy for his incredible skill and unlikely streaks of luck that enable him to be one of the best. During one of his most recent missions, he was badly wounded and presumed dead; upon his return to Britain, he is shown to have suffered muscle trauma, affecting his strength and accuracy significantly, thought by the end of Skyfall, his accuracy had returned, though his strength is still a little impaired.

It's almost easier to list what 007 can't do. A master of languages, well trained martial artist, marksman, and an ace driver, James isn't called a super-spy for nothing. His impressive reputation leaves him a little overconfident, but he's been around the block enough to still somehow manage to make it out. His ability to find information is tough to match, and his shot is tough to top, but his experiences with poverty have left him with quite the expensive taste.

Oddly enough, this particular iteration of Bond does not have Quick Draw, as typically his gun is primed before he shoots (and he normally misses on the round he draws anyways). Similarly, he doesn't appear to have Assassin either; odd, considering his occupation.

The name is Bond. James Bond. Leave questions, comments, and complaints below, and I look forward to Savaging all the things again!
