Biography

Casino Royale

Following the deaths of Le Chiffre and Vesper Lynd, Bond was told by his superior M that Vesper has a boyfriend of French-Algerian descent named Yusef Kabira and that she was blackmailed by Mr. White into handing over the casino winnings to Quantum in exchange for Kabira's safety. This prompted Bond to track Mr. White down and take him into custody.

Quantum of Solace

Following Mr. White's escape from custody, it turns out that Kabira is actually working for Mr. White as his job was to seduce high-ranking women with valuable connections, getting them to give up government assets as ransom for himself in fake kidnappings where he is supposedly held hostage, implying that he had a role in Vesper's death the entire time. After interrogating Greene following General Medrano's death, Bond learns of Kabira's true occupation with Quantum and that he is currently targeting Canadian agent Corinne Veneau, even giving her the same kind of necklace he gave to Vesper.

Following Greene's death and the dismantling of Quantum, Bond manages to track down and confront Kabira at his apartment before telling Corinne about Kabira's true occupation and advising her to alert the Canadian Security Intelligence Service. Realizing now that he's done for, Kabira decides to accept his fate by asking Bond to kill him and get it over with. However, rather than killing Kabira, Bond instead spares him and leaves him to be arrested by the arriving authorities for good.

Eventually, Bond learns that Quantum was nothing more than a front run by Ernst Stavro Blofeld of SPECTRE, and that Kabira was nothing more than a pawn alongside Mr. White, Le Chiffre, Greene and Medrano; all of them used by Blofeld as part of his plot to wreak psychological pain on Bond.
