So, I’ve been tinkering with several Hitman stories on and off over the years for future release on fan fiction sites, and there’s one I haven’t begun to write yet, but have been mentally crafting for about a year or two, and I figured I’d share it here to see if anyone thinks it’s viable.
It’s called Hitman: Protégé. It takes place something like five years after the end of WoA. The ICA has been reformed by Agent 47 and Diana, who also partially and unofficially run it, but is still slowly building its way back up to the prominence it once had, so they’re constantly looking for new “talent.” The story revolves mainly around a pair of teenage twins, whose names I haven’t settled on yet, but they’re a brother and sister, with a wealthy, neglectful yet domineering, sometimes abusive father, who they are convinced is responsible in some way for the death of their mother a few years prior. The father is white American, the mother was a naturalized citizen who immigrated from Mexico, so the twins are half-and-half. The boy is the athletic, physical one, the girl is the studious, cerebral one.
One night, at a public event that they were forced to attend for optics to their father’s career and fame, the boy catches a glimpse of 47 sneaking into the building where he shouldn’t be, but thinks nothing of it. Later that night, their father dies in a gruesome accident, and although the twins will be ok financially and are relieved that their father is gone, they still want to know why they are now orphans, and the boy suspects that the man he saw that night might have had something to do with it. So he and his sister start trying to look into the matter, and uncover info that their father did kill their mother, but on someone else’s orders. With the sister’s research and hacking skills guiding him, the brother sneaks into the office building owned by the man they think gave their father that order. Before he finds anything useful, he runs into 47, who tells him at gunpoint to come with him. Meanwhile, Diana hacks the comms to the sister’s computer and tells her to meet 47 and her brother at a special location if she wants her brother to remain ok.
Once they are in a secret location, 47 and Diana introduce themselves to the twins, explain what they do, that they are the ones who killed the twins’ father, that Diana uncovered the sister’s efforts to find info about the man their father knew, that they are also investigating the same man and that’s why Diana spotted her, and that she and 47 started to monitor them to see what they were doing and saw what the twins are capable of. As the twins are only a year away from being adults and able to enter the real world legitimately, they are offered the chance to join the ICA as novices in training, with the chance to right some of the wrongs in the world that they’ve experienced, and if they pass and once they reach adulthood, they would be made a full agent and handler respectively, and could even be assigned to each other as a team. The twins agree and enter the Agency initiate program, with the boy training to be an agent under 47, and the girl training to be a handler under Diana.
The four keep tabs on the man they are investigating, wanting to find proof of his crimes before making a move, as 47’s client did not specify a timetable on the target because they are also unsure of his guilt and want a thorough investigation conducted first, independent of the law so that the man’s money can’t shield him. As such, it’s unofficially decided among the four that 47 and Diana are preparing the twins to eventually take him out themselves in retribution for their mother’s death, and for pushing their father into becoming a monster in the process.
The training includes the boy performing the same play-acted simulations that we see in WoA, with some of the more interesting missions of 47’s own career being the ones presented, with the girl guiding him through them as Diana did on the real missions. Eventually the two are cleared for duty, and after their eighteenth birthday are given their first, low-level contract. It’s a driver license instructor who has been falsifying test scores to let certain people pass or fail based on who is paying him on the side to do what, resulting in all kinds of damage and chaos, but nobody can get any solid evidence because they can’t find the pattern.
The sister makes a false identify for her brother and puts him into the system as having a scheduled test appointment. During the drive, when the instructor is not watching him at the moment because he’s reviewing his notes, the boy drives the car off the designated testing path and to the edge of a deep canal full of water. While the instructor is confused as to why they are there and is looking around to get his bearings, the boy pulls out a suppressed pistol and shoots the guy twice in the head and three times in the heart, wanting to be sure that his first hit is successful. He then pushes the car into the canal and walks away. 47 and Diana are monitoring and following along with the entire mission, and are satisfied that they picked the right apprentices to take over as the top ICA operatives after they eventually retire.
That’s all I’ve thought up so far. Sound like something anyone would be interested in reading?
