@Bending_Cheese67, I hope you don't mind, but I took the libery of writing a briefing for the current contract, because there wasn't one and I was in the mood.
Diana Burnwood: "Good afternoon, 47.
"By now I'm sure you've read the paltry target profiles that I forwarded to your laptop, and you'd be forgiven for thinking: 'Why would anyone want these seemingly harmless Ether employees dead?'
"I was curious, too, so I, er ... bent ICA rules and ran a covert background check on the client, who was posing as an Ether board member and heavily implying that our marks are involved in corporate espionage -- but he lied, on both counts.
"The client's real name is Igor Schmidt. He's a delusional psychotic with a surprisingly high IQ who venerates the ICA, and you in particular. Apparently, you killed his wife in 2013 for an entirely unrelated matter, and freed him from an abusive and loveless marriage, whilst cleaning your tracks so well that he was never implicated in the murder.
"Since that time, Igor has dreamt of establishing his own assassination agency, based on ours, and he wants to make you his first recruit. All you have to do is pass his little test -- eliminating four, randomly selected, targets as quietly as possible.
"Well, almost randomly selected. They are all, in Mr Schmidt's opinion, terrible husbands and/or wives, and therefore deserving of punishment.
"The circumstances are peculiar, and a little troubling, I confess. Perhaps it's best if we abort. Your thoughts?"
Agent 47: "Is the money good?"
Diana Burnwood: "Yes. As I said, despite his psychological issues, the client is intelligent and his income is (mostly) above board."
Agent 47: "Greenlight the contract. I'd hate to disappoint a fan."
Diana Burnwood: "If you're certain. Should I also arrange a personal meet-and-greet with Mr Schmidt later this month? I'm sure he'd be ecstatic to meet his idol in person."
Agent 47: "If you think that's necessary, I won't object. I am a giver."
Diana Burnwood: "Indeed you are, 47. Indeed you are. Good luck."
