Octopussy (character) Biography (movie)
Octopussy is a jewel smuggler who lives a life of luxury. Her father studied octopi, hence the nickname Octopussy; her real name is unknown. Octopussy owns her own circus and floating palace in which she lives. Magda, the ring leader of the circus, works with her and, together, they work with Kamal Khan to get a Faberge egg.
Octopussy is first seen when Khan gives her the egg. Her face is not seen and Khan tells her about Bond. He insists on killing Bond but Octopussy says not to. She meets Bond a few minutes the first hour the movie. She and Bond make love for a couple of days and leaves for her circus train. Bond follows her to the circus and tries ever so desperately to stop the bomb. When he tells Magda and Octopussy who he is, (when in a clown suit), Octopussy grabs a gun and shoots off the location of the bomb. Right on cue, Bond disarms the bomb.
Back in India, she raids Khan's palace but is kidnapped and knocked unconscious by Gobinda. She wakes up in Khan's private plane and as she sees Gobinda go out to kill Bond she slaps him but gets knocked back into her seat. After Khan loses control of the plane, Bond saves Octopussy and jumps out leaving Khan to crash but Octopussy nearly falls off the cliff but is saved again by Bond. They make love in the end on board Octopussy's boat.
Last line: Oh, James!
