|~ Rhodes to Letty after stopping her from taking the Russian nuclear football case away from Dom.|
Connor Rhodes is the secondary antagonist in The Fate of the Furious. He is the merciless right-hand man and personal subordinate of Cipher. He helps Cipher in kidnapping Elena Neves and Dominic Toretto's infant son, Brian Marcos, as part of her plan to coerce Dom into working for them.
He was portrayed by Kristofer Hivju, who is perhaps best known for his role as Tormund Giantsbane in HBO's hit television series Game of Thrones.
Rhodes is extremely loyal to Cipher. Also, he is shown to be a cruel and violent man.
Rhodes is first seen on Cipher's untraceable plane when he meets Dom. He is later scene in New York where he stops Leticia "Letty" Ortiz from getting away with the Russian nuclear football case. He tries to shoot her, but Dom stops him and the two get back to Cipher's plane. He later executes Elena under Cipher's orders after becoming outraged at Dom for saving Letty during the heist in New York City. During the climax of the film, he tries to shoot Letty and the rest of Dom's crew from afar using his sniper rifle to make Dom forever alone. But after Dom's infant son is rescued by Deckard Shaw, Dom rebels against Cipher and confront Rhodes, making him miss his shot. They briefly argue before Dom attacks Rhodes and ends up breaking his neck, killing him as his revenge for Elena's death.
- Rhodes is the next right-hand man to die along with some other henchmen: Fenix Calderon (Fast & Furious), Zizi (Fast Five), Owen Shaw's team (Fast & Furious 6), Morimoto (The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift), and Kiet (Furious 7).
- Though Cipher was the main villain of the film, Rhodes did most of the action and was far more dangerous than Cipher.
