Agent 47’s (non-Target) Eliminations Throughout the Hitman Franchise
- x1 Orderly in Codename 47 (Training Level) Needs to be eliminated in order to obtain disguise and proceed.
- 4 Swat Members / Asylum Staff (Hitman 2: Silent Assassin / Asylum camera footage.)
- Six (6) Bikers in the warehouse (Hitman: Codename 47)
- The Postman (Hitman Blood Money)
- Unknown man from Hitman: Contracts. Was shot and eliminated by 47. Obviously he was a Target, but the “mission” is unplayable to players and was never explained further.
- Peter & Nancy Burnwood (Diana Burnwood’s Parents) Technically, they were 47’s “Targets” back when he was working with 6 and before the ICA. These two are still put in for the sake of 47’s “count”.

Joseph Clarence aka “The Swing King”
Joseph Clarence was one of the region’s most colorful personalities in the 80’s and 90’s, and no Southland social event was complete without his attendance. Handsome, charming, witty and successful, he radiated success. Following the devastating accident that closed his park, bled his fortune and eventually even cost him his marriage, the Swing King deteriorated into a lonely and reclusive soul, living a hermit’s existence in the shadows of his park. Rise and fall stories are woven into the very fabric of our national character, but something about the Swing King’s rise seemed more extraordinary than most… and something about his fall more tragic. It shouldn’t have been surprising to anyone that someone whose life had all the soaring highs of the roller coasters it was built on should also have all their thundering lows.
A Vintage Year

Fernando Delgado produced some of the worst wine in Chile.
Fernando Xalvador Delgado was one of Chile’s most respected Vintners, with an international reputation for excellence. His wines have won competitions around the world. He was also an accomplished cellist. Though he seldom performed in public, guests at his private parties were frequently entertained by his cello playing. He composed many pieces himself. One such composition, the oddly-named “Ode to a Scream”, was actually performed by the National Symphony Orchestra at a summer concert in 1994 and received favorable reviews from critics. The retired Colonel was also a collector of rare butterflies, describing his interest as a natural extension of his fascination with “all that is beautiful, delicate, gentle, and quiet.” “They call the study of butterflies lepidopterology”, the Colonel once joked in an interview", and that’s enough to scare anyone away from butterflies for good. One must be careful what one calls things. The thousands of men and women whose own lives were enriched by this generous, humble, and deeply spiritual Colonel feel his lose acutely. There is a sense in this small community that something vital has been lost.

Alvaro D’ Alvade’s perfectionism was legendary in the opera world, where it paid off in terms of the consistently astonishing technical brilliance of his performances. But it had its dark side. Rumors of an explosive temper and an eccentric sexual appetite dogged him throughout his otherwise illustrious career. Some leading ladies of the opera refused to perform with him. Some operas black-listed him. In 1997, a Bulgarian court attempted to prosecute him for the statutory rape of a thirteen-year-old girl. The case was ultimately dropped when the girl first declined to testify then simply disappeared. Prosecutors even tried to pin the girls’ disappearance on D’ Alvade, but her body was eventually discovered in a hollow at the bottom of a steep ravine and her death was ruled a suicide. The episode hurt D’ Alvade professionally. Although he was never convicted of a crime, his reputation had been soiled enough to reduce international demand for his performances. Critics have called him “the greatest Cavaradossi in the history of opera” and, whatever his personal failings, his performance in this production of Puccini’s “Tosca” was eagerly anticipated by opera enthusiasts.
NOTE: For Flatline, the newspaper uses whoever was randomly selected for the primary target (Carmine DeSalvo - Rudy Menzana - Lorenzo Lombardo) unless notoriety overtakes it. However, the “obituary” will always remain the same, as shown below.

Carmine DeSalvo was a multi-substance abuser
Don’t drink kids, you’ll end up like Rudy Menzana
Lorenzo Lombardo, down the hatch!
The Pinecone Rehabilitation clinic enjoys a stellar reputation as the most successful, luxurious, and discrete rehabilitation clinic in North America. It’s client list is a closely guarded secret. Despite the secrecy, it’s well-known that dozens if not hundreds of movers and shakers from politics and entertainment have cleaned up their acts at Pine Cone. Some celebrities have openly acknowledged that the program saved their lives. One Hollywood publicist has even been said to send even his “clean” clients to the clinic to boost their careers, so potent is the high-gloss mystique of this facility. The clinic’s controversial policy of discharging only “the clean and the dead” has brought it under legal scrutiny, but investigations have never revealed anything but an intensely dedicated staff working with state-of-the-art methods. At the time of admission, all clients are required to sign a waiver acknowledging that they will not leave the clinic until they are “clean” or dead. A clinic spokesman says this scares away those who aren’t really committed to keeping clean. Critics of the clinic call it a cheap publicity stunt. “I could open a restaurant and say no one ever leaves until they’re fed or dead”, says one consulting physician from a less glamorous clinic. “That wouldn’t tell you anything about my food.”
A New Life

Vinnie “Slugger” Sinistra sleeps with the fishes
Vinnie Sinistra, age 43, an expatriated Cuban, was “exported” by Castro like so many other criminals in the late 80’s. Sinistra had been involved in organized crime all his life. He quickly teamed up with Sammy Falconetti and Bobby Mazur to form one of Miami’s most notorious drug smuggling trios. They are believed to have smuggled several tons of cocaine by boat from the Bahamas during the 90’s. Sinistra was wanted by the FBI for the murder of Luiz Zukowski, a state witness against the drug trio. Sinistra was placed under the federal witness protection program when he turned himself in after a month-long nationwide manhunt. Almost 20.000 people in the US have entered the federal witness protection program since its inception in the 1970’s. Sinistra’s victim, Luiz Zukowski, was in the program at the time of his death. Authorities insist that these two cases are exceptions to the rule: Federally protected witnesses ordinarily live out their days in peace. Very few die violent deaths. But, according to one federal employee who insisted on anonymity, “it ain’t like it breaks your heart when one a these scumbags goes down.”

Raymond Kulinsky at the Olympics
Raymond Kulinsky qualified for the U.S. winter Olympic team as a biathlon athlete in 1992. Shortly after qualifying, he injured his knee while biking and was unable to recuperate in time for the games. He then reportedly entered a deep depression that eventually led to his embarking upon a life of crime. Kulinsky has been one of the FBI’s 100 most-wanted criminals since 1996. An FBI field office spokesperson identified Kulinsky as one of the ten most-wanted assassins in North America. He’s believed to have been responsible for nearly two-dozen assassinations in the last eight years. There’s no question the world is a better place without Raymond Kulinsky in it", says one FBI official familiar with the case." He was a dangerous, deadly, hateful man." Officials would not discuss the particulars of his career, the details of their investigation, or whether they’ve made any progress in identifying the person or persons behind Kulinsky. “Assassins don’t pick their own targets”, another law enforcement official familiar with the investigation observed. "So when we bag one of these dogs, our first question is always: who’s got the leash?

Chad Jr. had a bright future ahead of him
Chad Jr. had become the black sheep of the family in recent years, and local tabloids frequently ran unflattering photographs of the young man engaged in morally dubious behavior. He was rapidly becoming a political liability for his father, whose sights have clearly been set on the White House for some time. Friends say it was actually admiration for his father that drove the young man to such excess. “He wasn’t like his old man and he knew it”, says one friend. “He felt like a total disappointment whatever he did. So he just kind of gave up on things, you know, and I guess it was pretty inevitable he’d die young.” Several Denver prostitutes have told the tabloids they were physically abused by Bingham. Unsubstantiated rumors of his involvement in the death of a popular stripper continue to circulate. His father dismisses it all as slander. “The sad truth”, the Senator observed in a local television interview last month, “is that when you run for high elected office, your whole family becomes fair game for these sleazeball journalists. It’s disgusting.” The whole family’s pretty shaken up", says one aide to the Senator. “There aren’t going to be any official statements on anything. The family just needs to get through this thing and hopes the press will let them grieve their loss privately.”
Death on The Mississippi

Skip Muldoon has finally gone ashore
Captain Skip Muldoon was a flamboyant character familiar to everyone in the delta region. He was a man of extravagant tastes and outspoken opinions. He was also rumored to be the head of a local drug syndicate. He was as secretive as he was fastidious. His passion for cleanliness and order on his ship was second only to his passion for fried food and baked goods. Captain Muldoon had been running tourist and excursion cruises up and down the Mississippi for nearly twenty years. The Riverboat Pilots Association voted him riverboat Captain of the year for three consecutive years in the 90’s. Law enforcement officials were not as pleased with Captain Muldoon as the RPA, however. Federal and State officials launched three investigations into the Captain’s operations between 1995 and 2003. According to local police, however, Captain Muldoon was nothing more than he appeared to be: a flamboyant and meticulous riverboat Captain with a soft spot for fatty foods – and lean young men. Captain Muldoon was also an avid marksman, and enjoyed showing off his accuracy by taking shots at local wildlife while his boat was underway. This habit did little to endear him to authorities.

“Pappy” LeBlanc, a true redneck
John “Pappy” LeBlanc was a fixture in the delta region. A successful businessman who never lost touch with his roots, Pappy had a winning blend of old-school charm, down-home common sense, and ruthless business savvy. Most friends and associates acknowledge that Pappy’s cognitive faculties had been breaking down over the last few years, but all of them stressed he was still not a man to be underestimated. “Ol’ Pappy talked a lot of crap about UFOs and government plots and secret cloning labs and I don’t know what all”, says long-time friend Henrick Slackjaw, “but he was still one shrewd son-of-a-gun, if you know what I mean.” Despite his reputation, the extent of his business interests and the scope of his fortune, as revealed by the usual post-mortem legal inquiries, have astonished even many of those who knew him best. “We all knew Pappy was doing all right”, recalls one business associate, “but I don’t think anyone had any idea just how all right that was. I reckon you coulda knocked his little girl over with a feather when she found out.” “What’s a sweet little thang like that gonna do with all them hundreds of millions of dollars? Just gonna put a whole lotta stress on that pretty little head of hers. And her without a husband now. It just ain’t right.”
A House of Cards

Sheik Mohammad bin Faisal Al-Khalifa died at age 54.
Mohammad bin Faisal Al-Khalifa was fifty-four years old and the CEO of Arabian Pharmaceutical Exports, Inc (APEX), whose anti-depressant drug Encephamol is expected to receive FDA approval later this year. The Sheik was one of the Saudi kingdom’s many billionaires and had an international reputation as something of a playboy, with a special fondness for blackjack, craps, and poker. In a single session at a high-rolling Las Vegas craps table in 2003, the Sheik lost more than four million dollars in forty-five minutes without losing his smile. He was as decadent as he was extravagant. Tabloids gleefully reported that at his most recent birthday, held on his 184-foot private yacht, he invited guests to lick beluga caviar off the otherwise naked bodies of dozens of beautiful young women. He made international headlines in 2002 when the press published photographs of one of his orgies: it was not the sheer pornographic vulgarity of the photos that generated interest so much as the cast of characters. In recent years the Sheik had rarely been seen in public without being accompanied by Tariq Abdul Lateef, the fashion-conscious scientist believed to be the brains behind APEX’s success.
A Dance With The Devil
August 16, 2005
The extent of Mr. Martinez’ work with the CIA is unknown, for obvious reasons. Local authorities were unwilling to speculate as to whether or not his intelligence background had anything to do with his death. “Not everyone who works for the CIA ends up dead at a Las Vegas party”, quipped one investigator who didn’t seem amused by reporters’ persistent questions about Martinez’ background. Mr. Martinez had been living in Key West for the past few years. Little is known about his activities there, but he does seem to have done an unusual amount of traveling. According to his Key West neighbors, he was a quiet but friendly man who kept to himself. None of the neighbors interviewed by this paper knew anything about his CIA background. The Central Intelligence Agency would not even confirm that Mr. Martinez had ever worked for them. Nor would agency representatives comment on the possible implications of his apparently violent death. Mr. Martinez studied anthropology and psychology as an undergraduate, and held a Master’s Degree in Asian history. He was fluent in over a dozen languages.
