|~ Rook plotting to kill Bond in revenge for his disfigurement.|
Armitage Rook is a major antagonist in the 007 videogame Nightfire. He is the henchman and main assistant of Raphael Drake.
He was voiced by Richard Whiten.
Rook was first seen guarding a party in industrialist Rafael Drake's Austrian castle; in reality a cover for the exchange of a stolen American missile guidance chip. Infiltrating the party, Bond makes his way to the exchange and steals the chip, pursued by Rook in a helicopter which is subsequently shot down by the spy.
Rook manages to survive the crash and is later seen at a Japanese nuclear power plant outside Tokyo, bearing heavy scarring on the left side of his face, a blinded eye and armed with a state of the art laser rifle. Despite the advantage of superior firepower, he is killed while engaged in an intense firefight with Bond after he attempted to shut down the power at the Delta center.
- In the PC version of the game, he dies when he is killed by the lethal blades of a huge fan inside a windtunnel-like astronaut training facility; in the console version, he is killed much later on in the plot by Bond while inside Drake's underground shuttle hangar. In both variations, he dies while fighting Bond.
