One of the many undercover agents the CIA has working in China, Zoe Nightshade
is willing to lend a hand with James Bond's current mission.
From years of
field work in Asia, she has become fluent in Mandarin. Zoe is skilled in
a variety of firearms and is also a world-class driver.
Agent Nightshade was kidnapped by Nigel
Bloch, CEO of Identicon,
which coincidentally is a subsidiary of Malprave Industries.
She was taken to the Identicon factory in Hong Kong, China,
where she was tied to a submarine pole as the sub was activated
to start its descent into shark infested waters. James Bond
rescued her, and they retrieved secret vials that were heavily
guarded. They were later chased in Zoe's BMW, and she was seemingly
assassinated by Carla the Jackal,
a sharpshooter that had been photographed
with Adrian Malprave. She stole the vials retrieved from
the factory. but Bond chased her down, and retrieved the vials.
Later in the game, Bond finds the real Zoe Nightshade
in a submarine inside the secret Poseidon base. She explains
that Malprave had
kidnapped her, cloned her, and made a plot for him to save
her clone, and the clone was meant to kill Bond. The missile
to kill Bond, but it accidentally killed Zoe's clone.
In the final level, Zoe rescues Bond while she is piloting
a jet, and Bond kills Bloch, and Malprave.
Months later, Zoe is once again in the picture for the next
videogame adventure, Nightfire.

Drake's castle. Bond rescues her, and that was the last the
world has seen of Agent Nightshade.
