Michel's comment in a concurrent post inspires this thread.

Who are the strangest fictional intelligence chiefs you can name?

My vote goes to 'Dragon' in the Jonathan Hemlock novels of Trevanian. He's wheelchair/bedridden, constantly has his blood scrubbed and recycled by expensive medical equipment; and --as a 100% albino--can't tolerate any light at all; his office is lit only by dim infra-red bulbs. He lives in the dark like a reptile.

Another good one might be 'Mummy' from The Manchurian Candidate'

I guess the closest to the criteria would be (literary) Blofeld who technically does run a private intelligence firm/profit motivated terrorist organization. Primarily due to the increasingly ludicrous plastic surgery he utilizes. Especially the look he's taken on in "You Only Live Twice". I suppose it's due to his disintegrating sanity.
