Okay now we’re in a new topic as promised.
Probably because Fuchs isn’t fabricated to be a pornified ideal of the male body designed to titilate those who are into that sort of thing - where Diana’s body was. Observe:
This is before we factor in aspects like that Fuchs being in the shower is only an aspect you come across while on the hit, and shows you coming across him by surprise. Diana’s shower scenes were used in promotion, are in the menu of the game - and it turns out she’s not that surprised by you.
Angelina Mason is an assassin who’s best plan to murder a senator at Mardi Gras is to climb up on his float and stab him in the neck - she carries a silenced pistol and is by far the weakest enemy on the map. Her boyfriend has a real plan (sniping), more powerful gun and isn’t prone to standing under pianos. Angelina’s main purpose is to add an extra easy target and provide radio sex chatter so you can locate targets via walkie talkie.
Dr Hannelore is the “odd one out” in 47s hit list in Silent Assassin. He kills KGB Generals, spies, world class hacker, a yakuza boss, agent 17, an uber crimelord and a mean doctor lady who steals candy from her patients and is assassinated for no clear reason. Seriously you are going to kill the guy anyway, you can’t really disguise yourself as her per se.
Then there’s Eve from Dance with the Devil:
Again without highlighting at the party that pretty much every female character at the party is dressed like that while the male guests are dressed in suits. Or that both Eve and the unnamed female assassin in Better Watch Out both rely on the concept of using the promise of sexual services in order to lure 47 in for the kill (Eve’s male equivalent just challenges you to a duel and wears a suit).
Then, going back to Absolution (which has by far the most female targets in the series) there’s Layla Stockton :
The achievement for killing Layla Stockton is Destroying Something Beautiful - which highlights how despite her getting screen time she really had no other character traits they could assign her.
Then, you don’t need to know much about Absolution to know about this one, The Saints:
Yeah. Also, in game - these ladies are not particularly formidable or challenging - they’re just basically generic troops with sexy fetish nun models and names assigned. Some of the “accident” kills for them are baffling given that at the time they’re supposed to be hunting you.
Generally the female targets have been sexualized over being developed, are never critical to the “plot” per se and don’t command anywhere near respect that the male characters do.
When we ambush Fuchs in the shower it’s a shift from him being absolutely confident in his evil schemes to him being powerless and afraid. When we ambush Diana it’s an opportunity to try to mix some sex in with the violence.
