Information on the Rapper
Ernst Stavro Blofeld is the closest thing to a main antagonist in the James Bond franchise; he is featured in three of Ian Fleming's original novels and six of the films, and is the only Bond villain to make three or more appearances (the only two-appearance villain is Jaws). Blofeld is the leader of the terroristic spy organization SPECTRE, in which his code name is Number One, and operated largely from behind the scenes, his face not being shown until his third film appearance in You Only Live Twice when Bond finally comes face-to-face with him. Though Blofeld is played by different actors in the films and looks wildly different between appearances, the excuse given for which is that he undergoes extensive plastic surgery to keep a low profile from his enemies, the version from You Only Live Twice, played by Donald Pleasance, being bald and with a large facial scar and having a pet cat in his lap, is the most iconic by far and was the direct inspiration for Dr. Evil in the Austin Powers spoof films, who is arguably more famous today than Blofeld himself.
Blofeld's most notable act of villainy occurs at the end of On Her Majesty's Secret Service, where he carries out the murder of Bond's newly-married wife tracy, the only woman he ever truly loved. However, this was seemingly forgotten about in the following film Diamonds Are Forever, were Blofeld is defeated in a clumsily comical manner that does not make clear whether he actually died nor take into account the factor of Bond getting revenge for his wife. This was rectified in the beginning of For Your Eyes Only, the prologue of which sees Bond definitively kill Blofeld following a scene of him paying respects at Tracy's grave, though for legal reasons over the first Fleming book in which Blofeld appeared the villain was not explicitly identified nor seen up-close here.
The latest Bond film, 2015's SPECTRE, features the return of Blofeld, although it seems to be in a different continuity and/or a prequel to his previous appearances and eventual apparent death.
