Lt. Hip, a detective from the Hong Kong police force, was a soft-spoken,
quiet, and rather cool and collected. He was a courageous and
aggressive ally to Bond, backing him up throughout the mission.
Initially Bond and Lt. Hip met when Scamanga assassinated Gibson,
a solar energy expert, and Bond was on the scene and was arrested
by Hip, and the Hong Kong police. After they told Bond he was
being taken to police headquarters, he suspected them of being
enemies, when they took him to the docks, put him on a police
boat and took him to a ship wreck. Bond was shocked and relieved
to find out the wreck was actually MI6's hidden Hong Kong headquarters.
When they were on board, Bond and Hip were assigned to recover
the Solex Agitator. Throughout the mission, Lt. Hip worked closely
with Bond, engaging in fights, Hip being a Kung Fu expert, Hip
eventually helped Bond recover the Solex Agitator, by disguising
himself as a peanut vendor, collecting the Solex Agitator.
