The closest thing to the public’s image of a spy is called a combatant. It’s the most dangerous job in espionage because combatants work undercover in enemy countries with little support. When things go seriously wrong, and escape is impossible, a combatant will head for a Speakeasy. It’s a legitimate business owned by the combatant’s own intelligence agency, and its only purpose is to keep combatants from being arrested and hung. Inside, he’ll be hidden, protected, and given a new identity. It is all the speakeasy is there for. When he walks back out, he will do so as a different person.
