Biography

The Bourne Identity

Alongside Castel and The Professor, Manheim was originally assigned to kill Jason Bourne by CIA field director Alexander Conklin. However, he never reaches Bourne and following the deaths of Castel and the Professor, he was reassigned to kill Conklin himself by orders of his superior, Ward Abbott, because of his failure to apprehend Bourne. Manheim waited in a red Renault Twingo hatchback and is seen attaching a suppressor to his Beretta 92FS. As he steps out, he confronts an injured Conklin and subsequently shoots him twice in the chest and then delivers a final headshot to finish him at close range. He then contacts Treadstone to inform them that his last orders had been carried out.

Manheim's fate is unknown, as he was the only one of the three assets that Bourne didn't kill, though in The Bourne Supremacy, former Treadstone operative Jarda tells Bourne that they are the last two Treadstone agents, implying that Manheim died of some other cause during the span between Identity and Supremacy.
