that’s the concept behind basically all of the elusive targets… 47 is operating in a limited time window because this is the one shot he’ll get and they can’t afford to miss it. that’s certainly not the thing that makes Faba stand out, it’s how he taunts the ICA because he knows that he’s always one step ahead. to totally squander that potential because “47 is a good assassin” is a waste
which is exactly why it would be good to see him back, subversion of expectations (both ours and 47’s)
introducing that character flaw to 47, that after 20 years of being a contract killer for the ICA he’s become too much of a showman and because of that failed to do the most important part, which is make sure the guy is ACTUALLY dead, is something that’s desperately needed, as of now he’s just too perfect and it really shows in the quality of the overarching story
dangerous maybe, but Faba isn’t meant to be a threat to 47 or the ICA. he isn’t armed, he doesn’t fight back or kill the people after him. that’s what makes him so unique, he’s incredibly intelligent and he knows he’s the best at what he does so he can afford to stay super chill even when he knows 47 is on his trail, which is great because it draws parallels with 47 and gives Faba actual character.
