As the central figure of his works, Ian Fleming created the fictional character of James Bond, an intelligence officer in the Secret Intelligence Service, commonly known as MI6. Bond was also known by its code number 007, and was a Royal Naval Reserve Commander.


Fleming took the name for his character of the American ornithologist James Bond, a Caribbean bird expert and author of the definitive guide to the Birds of the West Indies field; Fleming, an amateur birdwatcher himself, had a copy of Bond guide and explained below. ornithologist's wife that "It struck me that this name brief, unromantic, Anglo-Saxon and yet very masculine was just what I needed, and thus was born one second James Bond" He further explained that:

When I wrote the first in 1953, wanted to be a Bond boring, uninteresting man to whom things happened, and I wanted it to be a blunt ... when I was casting around for a name for my protagonist I thought by God, (James Bond) is the name most boring I've ever heard.
Ian Fleming, The New Yorker, April 21, 1962
On another occasion Fleming said: "I wanted the simplest, dullest, simplest sounding name I could find was' James Bond 'much better than something more interesting, like' Peregrine Carruthers Exotic things would happen to him and his around but. would be a neutral figure, an instrument anonymous, blunt in the hands of a government department ".


Fleming based his fictional creation of a number of individuals who met while in the Naval Intelligence Division during World War II, admitting that Bond "is a compound of all the secret agents and the types of commands that I met during the war ". These guys were his brother, Peter, who had been involved in operations behind the lines in Norway and Greece during the war. In addition to Fleming's brother, a number of others also provided some aspects of Bond up, including Conrad O'Brien-ffrench, Patrick Dalzel-Job and Bill "Biffy" Dunderdale.


Fleming Bond also endowed with many of its own features, including sharing the same golf handicap, a taste for scrambled eggs and use the same brand of toiletries. Bond tastes are also often taken as was Fleming's own behavior, with Bond's love of golf and the game itself reflecting Fleming. Fleming used his experiences of his espionage career and all other aspects of his life as inspiration for writing, including the use of names of school friends, acquaintances, relatives and lovers through their books.

Fleming decided Bond should look a little like both singer Hoagy Carmichael and himself and in Casino Royale, Vesper Lynd remarks, "Bond reminds me rather of Hoagy Carmichael, but there is something cold and ruthless." Likewise, in Moonraker, Special Branch Officer Gala Brand thinks that Bond is "certainly good-looking ... something like Hoagy Carmichael in a way. That black hair falling over his right eyebrow. Much the same bones. But there was a bit cruel in the mouth and the eyes were cold. "


It was not until the penultimate novel, You Only Live Twice, that Fleming gave Bond a sense of family history. The book was the first to be written after the release of Dr. No in cinemas and Sean Connery's portrayal of Bond affected Fleming interpretation of the character, to give Bond both a sense of humor and Scottish history that were not present in the previous stories.
