In On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Irma Bunt is an agent of Blofeld who is in charge of his Angels of Death. These women are being brainwashed to carry out SPECTRE’s evil deeds, and as their caretaker, Bunt is tasked with preparing them for missions. Similar to From Russia With Love’s Rosa Klebb, Bunt isn’t a femme fatale for Bond to fall in love with; instead, she’s a brutish woman that is just as deadly as she is homely.
In a rare twist for a Bond villain, Irma Bunt escapes scot-free from any punishment at the end of the movie. The only time a villain survives crossing paths with 007 is usually either by being arrested or switching allegiances, so this makes Irma an anomaly in the Bond universe.
