~ Soders' last word if he recognizes Agent 47, being scared to death as a result.

Erich Soders is the secondary antagonist of HITMAN (2016), where he would also be the main target of the latter's sixth and final story mission "Situs Inversus".

He is voiced by William Salyers, who also voiced Rigby from Regular Show.

Biography

Little is known of Erich Soder's life before he became an assassin for the ICA. Considered the ICA's top agent, his Magnus opus was the assassination of rogue chess master Jasper Knight. Alas, Soders was forced into retirement by a congenital heart condition.

A friend of her parents, Soders recruited Diana Burnwood into the ICA. Soon after, he was promoted to Senior Supervisor before finally being promoted to a board director.

In 1999, Erich Soders oversaw the training of Agent 47, then an initiate to the ICA. Jealous of Agent 47's skills, he increased security on his final test, but was forced to accept Agent 47 in.

In 2019, Soders, suffering from his heart condition again, agreed to betray the ICA for Providence. Sending the ICA after the Shadow Client, he fast-tracked himself to the GAMA facility in hopes of getting a right-sided heart.

Personality

Once the ICA's best assassin and considered to be the greatest of his generation, Soders became an angry, petty man who would be embittered at his forced retirement. He purposely amped up the difficulty on Agent 47's final test, hoping that he would fail. He was also treacherous, willing to sell out his own agency to save his own skin. This turned out to be his undoing, as Soders, now a weak and pitiful shell of his former self, was forced to watch as his superior successor ended his life.

Trivia

  • Most of the methods for killing Soders can be considered some of the most violent in the entire series. Most notably, Agent 47 could kill Soders by using either one of these prominent methods:
    • Sabotaging the GAMA hospital's artificial intelligence K.A.I. and then overriding the operating table's robotic scalpel arms, causing them to go haywire and repeatedly stab him until he dies.
    • Using the operating table's robotic syringe arm to drain all of his blood from his body.
    • Contaminating his stem cells with any type of poison at Agent 47's disposal.
    • Destroying his transplant heart to make him eventually die of his illness.
    • Simply just walking up to him directly (without wearing any disguises) and making him be scared him to death upon seeing Agent 47.
    • The brutality of these methods are all probably due to Agent 47's anger with Soders for his treachery.
  • Soders could be considered the final boss of the game, as he is the most personal foe to Agent 47 in the game.
  • Soders is likened to a spider, as shown by his treasonous nature and the machine-made operating table he is lying on. Ironically, Soders can have all of his blood drained out from him while paralyzed with the robotic arms, a way spiders kill their prey.
  • Soders is the second target that can be killed by another person and the first target who can be killed by an NPC. While Jordan Cross can kill Ken Morgan in a fit of rage, Soders can be killed by the chief surgeon after revealing his involvement in the assassination of the latter's father.
  • There is a fan theory that Soders is the Mystery Man from Hitman 2: Silent Assassin.
