Imogen Royce is one of the two targets in the Hitman 3 mission "End of an Era".
Little is known about the prior life of Imogen Royce, due to misinformation spouted by her devoted fanbase. As the "official" story goes, Imogen Royce was the daughter of western diplomats living in Hong Kong. Bullied relentlessly in school, young Imogen snapped and was institutionalized at a mental hospital, where experiments were conducted on her. After her parents were killed in an accident, she was kicked out of the institution at the young age of fourteen.
Royce then allegedly escaped to Shanghai, where she became obsessed with machines, computers, and the "machine-state". Going online, she released videos detailing her body modification efforts and gained substantial financial backing and a cult like fanbase. Royce eventually gained the attention of the International Contract Agency, who recruited her into their ranks. She was swiftly promoted to the analyst division, where she pioneered her prediction algorithm.
During the events of "End of an Era", she can be seen in an underground facility where the ICA keep all of their archives. Agent 47 arrives and assassinates her through a player-determined method.
- Imogen Royce's backstory is highly implied to be false, as it comes off as overly tragic and makes no mention of her gaining a formal education.
