You see Mr. Bond, I always thought I liked animals. Then I discovered that I enjoyed killing people even more.
— Francisco Scaramanga

Francisco Scaramanga is the titular main antagonist form the film The Man with the Golden Gun. Scaramanga is known for his skill with firearms and is supposedly the best assassin in the world, charging 1$ USD per kill. Because of his use of a costum made golden handgun that fires golden bullets, Scaramanga is also known as the Man with the Golden GUn

Scaramanga became a trick shot in a circus act in a circus owned by his father. At age 15, he became an international assassin-for-hire. He was recruited some years later by the KGB while living in Ipanema, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and trained in Eastern Europe where for many years he was basically just another "overworked and underpaid assassin" for the KGB. He quit the KGB in the late 1950s, becoming an independent hitman-for-hire.

Scaramanga lives very well, drawing from the exorbitant sums of money he charges to carry out his assassinations and has built his home on his own personal island somewhere off the coast of south-eastern China, paying for a lease of the island and protection through assassinations for the Chinese.

One of his employers, Hai-Fat, put Scaramanga in charge of assassinating a scientist with solar energy information. Instead of handing it over to Hai-Fat, Scaramanga killed him, and taken the Solex agitator for himself, creating his own solar-powered laser cannon. He was defeated by James Bond in a duel, in his own labyrinth, as Bond posed as a mannequin of himself, and shot Scaramanga in the heart before he could react.
