Brendan Conner, also known as The Identity Theif, was the 12th Elusive Target in HITMAN (2016). He was later reactivated as a legacy Elusive Target in HITMAN 2 (2018).
Brendan Conner was an IT billionaire who made his fortune on dark net identity theft. He cut his teeth with phone fraud and never looked back. Through the dark web, Conner stole identities and selling his services as a cyber-criminal to the highest bidder.
ICA information and recent traffic intercepts indicate that he was currently working with high-ranking members of the Chinese government and were plotting conspiracies in the mainland, as the internal power struggles of that labyrinthine organization grind up possible rivals and threats.
Conner was assassinated by Agent 47 in Paris when he was attending the IAGO auction. An anonymous client hired the ICA and 47 to have him eliminated to ensure that his operation would never happen.
Conner takes high-risk jobs that could easily incriminate him, despite already being a billionaire. He also doesn't spend enough time covering his tracks, despite working in a job where secrecy is of utmost importance. He's also extremely hedonistic, paying five grand for an attractive escort instead of a bodyguard and wearing extremely vibrant clothes when he's trying not to draw attention to himself.
- During the mission, the woman who escorted Conner attempted to flirt with him until he was annoyed and interrupted several times due to setbacks of his conspiracy. It was later revealed that the woman was hired by someone else to escort him, and she had gone impatient.
