Alvaro D'Alvade is one of the targets in the Hitman: Blood Money mission "Curtains Down." He is killed along with his implied lover, Richard Delahunt, while performing Tosca.
Alvaro D'Alvade is an Italian tenor, being renowned for his singing ability but also being blacklisted by many theaters for being difficult to work with as well as the growing accusations of him being involved in a child prostitution ring.
In reality, the rumors are true, as he and his lover, Richard Delahunt are using their wealth and connections to abuse children underneath the public eye. The ring is known of, only not being followed farther due to the "suicide" of a thirteen-year-old girl who was going to testify against D'Alvade. His relationship with Delahunt is also an open secret, as the two are inseparable.
He is canonically killed by a gunshot from a pistol that was assumed to be a prop. Delahunt is promptly killed by a falling chandelier, courtesy of 47.
D'Alvade is a sadistic pedophile, kidnapping and raping countless boys and girls while hiding behind his public persona as an actor. He is known for being short tempered, difficult to work with, and perfectionistic, leading to him being despised by anyone who works with him. His only friend is Richard Delahunt, the US ambassador to the Vatican, who assists him in his child trafficking ring. The two of them are heavily implied to be in love, as shown when Delahunt becomes hysterical if he witnesses the tenor's timely demise.
- Ironically, D'Alvade's canon death is very similar to the plot of Tosca. The protagonist attempts to fake his death in order to run off with his lover by faking an execution using a prop gun. Unbeknownst to him, the gun is replaced with a genuine firearm, causing him to be fatally wounded. The lover starts off applauding his paramour's "acting" before realsing that his lover is really dead.
- D'Alvade's first name was originally Phillipe Berceuse, as shown in the final level in Hitman: Contracts. This was changed in Hitman: Blood Money.
- He is one of the only targets to be a target in two levels, although he is dead at the time of his first appearance.
- In HITMAN (2016), D'Alvade's photo appeared alongside some other previous targets on the Shadow Client's shelf.
- He is one of the only targets to explicitly be a child rapist, a theme which is contentious even in the hitman franchise.
