Respected as a world champion in the Pentathalon and admired
by the ladies, Erik Kriegler has another, darker side to his character.
He works for the nefarious Kristatos in an attempt to sell the
British ATAC to the Russians.
Kriegler is an East German biathlon champion and the brawn of
Kristatos' operation. Dedicated and trained he is relentless in
his pursuit of his objective and his own perfection. He is devoted
to the enhancement of his physical performance, but at the loss
of his intellectual development. Having been successful for his
whole life, defeat is not something that Kriegler can handle with
any dignity, causing him to habour hostility and quickly form
hatred. He is also the object of Bibi Dahl's young passion.
Distracted from his competition Kriegler focuses on his mission
to eliminate Bond in a cross country ski chase of epic proportions.
Bond gets the better of Kriegler and when the two meet later atop
St. Cyril, Kriegler is after his revenge. However, Bond gets the
better of Kriegler again and pushes him through a window to plummet
to his death.
