Actually, Lord Philliston, head of "the Source" (the British CIA), is known for smoking his meerschaum pipe with the bowl shaped like the head of Anne Boleyn. A typically cool character, Remo is assigned to take him out by Smith. Remo realizes (almost too late) that the guy is innocent of the suspected wrong-doings (blame Friend.)
Whenever he has dealings with Remo, you almost feel sorry for the guy. Shows up in several books, but never in a critical role.
