Agent 17 was created some time prior to Agent 47 (who was created on September 5, 1964). He was a successful clone, but had the abilities just like the average human. He also didn't have free will while taking orders, and rather followed a strict code on what to do in an assassination. As a result, Ort-Meyer continued his research and tried making a clone who could have free will when taking orders, eventually creating Agent 47.
Agent 17 stayed in Ort-Meyer's Asylum, until shortly after the events of Hitman: Codename 47. Sergei Zavorotko and his associate, the Mystery Man, found Agent 17 and employed him.
Two years later in 2002, Agent 47 was on a task in India where he was tasked with assassinating a cult leader. After successfully doing so and returning to the escape vehicle, 47 encountered Agent 17, who attempted to shoot at him but failed. 47 moved on and escaped from the area.
The United Nations paid Agent 47 to kill Sergei Zavorotko in a building in St. Petersburg. Zavorotko knew of this in advance, and hired 17 to kill 47. Agent 17 was in the building (with a cardboard cutout of Zavorotko in attempt to fool 47), equipped with a Walther WA 2000 sniper rifle, ready to shoot at 47. Agent 47 however killed 17 before he could kill 47.
Agent 47 afterwards inspected 17's body, and discovered he was an Ort-Meyer clone like himself. Afterwards, Zavorotko phoned 17 to ask how the mission was going. 47 picked up the radio, and asked Zavorotko where he was, to track him. Zavorotko responds that he is far away, convinced that it was 17 talking to him. 47 shortly after revealed that he was not Agent 17, but rather Agent 47. Zavorotko, in surprise, threatens Agent 47 by stating that he is holding his mentor, Father Vittorio, hostage. 47 then escapes the building by wearing Agent 17's clothes as a disguise and flees St. Petersburg. He goes on to kill Zavorotko and his goons.
Agent 17 appears almost identical to Agent 47 physically. The prime differences are his orange tie and shades, in contrast to 47 merely having a red tie. He also has the same barcode on his forehead.
- If the player were to follow Agent 17 into his room in the level Terminal Hospitality, 17 would detonate a bomb, killing the player.
