Anthony Martinez is a major antagonist in Hitman: Blood Money, being the main antagonist in A Dance with the Devil mission.
He was an rogue CIA agent who's been playing both sides of the CIA and the Franchise for profit He was a business associate and lover of arms dealer Vaana Ketlyn, with whom he's scheduled to meet during the Heaven and Hell party she's hosting.
In his early life, Anthony Martinez studied psychology and anthropology in college; thus, he knew a lot about how people think and act. He also had a Master's Degree in Asian History and was fluent in over a dozen languages. He lived in the Key West, Florida for a few years and traveled a lot.
Some years lager, Martinez became a CIA agent. However, his taste for the expensive high life as well as his greed caused him he to become a corrupt agent. He sold weapons to his lover named Vaana Ketlyn, who was a famous former circus performer and secret arms dealer affiliated with the Franchise.
On August 15, 2005, Agent 47 was tasked to kill him alongside his lover, as well as two other assassins from the Franchise, as the last contract for the International Contract Agency. When he was assassinated, Martinez carried a case containing a FN-2000 rifle, which he intended to sell to Ketlyn.
Martinez is a hedonist who enjoyed his lifestyle of fast cars and nightclubs. He flirts with a party guest at the Heaven party after she calls him "cute" but turns her down, saying that he has "plans."
- Despite being a CIA agent, Martinez is shown wearing a police uniform in a newspaper article at the end of the mission.
- In the Hitman: Absolution level One of a Kind, Martinez's name is changed to "John Hardwick" in a newspaper article.
- If the player assumes the identity and disguise of Martinez, he would be automatically recognized by Eve (the assassin in the Heaven Party) and Maynard John (the assassin in the Hell Party), despite the fact that the costume includes a full-face devil mask.
- If 47 obtains the disguise of Martinez and goes with the rifle case to Vaana Ketlyn, she will lead 47 to a private room in which she asks 47 to remove his mask. If 47 takes too long to kill Vaana, she becomes furious and swings at 47 with her Cane Sword, resulting in 47's death and thus the failure of the mission.
