Although little more than a recorded voice in a fake cantaloupe in his first appearance, "Amadeus" is another mystery character associated with Fooker's secret agent activities. As "James Baud's" superior, "Amadeus" gave our slacker-hacker-turned-spy his orders against both Moldfinger and Doctor Not. Eventually, when Fooker was jailed for the shooting spree of the Fookinator, we learned that "Amadeus" was none other than veteran actor Patrick Stewart, best known to our readers as Captain Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Using his acting career as a cover, Stewart was secretly the head of the most covert organization on Earth, the Undisclosed Government Agency. "Amadeus" and the U.G.A. proved vitally important in defeating C.R.U.D.E. at the Battle of Manhattan (see Surreptitious Machinations, Chapter 8: Wars and Confrontations).
Years later, Agent #18 unceremoniously announced "Amadeus'" resignation. Citing "concerns about a British national being in charge of a U.S. spy organization" and "his high-profile alter-ego", "Amadeus" "voluntarily" stepped down as head of the organization. Surely this had nothing to do with the sudden return of his replacement....

Jeff chose Patrick Stewart to be "Amadeus" as a counterpoint to his earlier decision to cast Sean Connery as "Moldfinger", in large part as a long run-up to this joke. "Amadeus'" "retirement" also came from a similar reasoning; as humorous as the initial joke was, it didn't age very well and ran the risk of drawing unwanted attention from the repeated use of both famous likenesses. As such, both "Amadeus" and "Moldfinger" have been quietly retired as GPF characters, having done their duty in bringing us laughs. Jeff hopes that should Sir Sean and Sir Patrick ever play a round of golf together, they can have a good laugh at all this as well and politely refrain from suing him.
