The Janus Syndicate is one of the organizations featured in LEGO Dimensions 2: The Rise of Enoch, from the James Bond franchise.

Background

The Janus Syndicate was a fictional crime syndicate featured in the 1995 James Bond film, GoldenEye. According to Bond, they were "top-flight arms dealers headquartered in St Petersburg", and were responsible for restocking the Iraqis during the 1990–91 Gulf War. MI6 was initially unaware that their leader was none other than former 00-Agent, Alec Trevelyan.

The name of the organization and Trevelyan's nom de guerre, is derived from the eponymous two-faced god who simultaneously looks at the future and past, as well as being the master of beginnings and endings. The two faces of Janus are a constant theme in GoldenEye, as Trevelyan sustains burns to his face that give him a double-faced appearance, falling in line with his two-faced and traitorous nature.
