The International Contract Agency, frequently shortened to the ICA or The Agency, is an amoral assassination agency with close ties to governments and intelligence agencies. It is the organization in which villain protagonists Agent 47 and Diana Burnwood work in the Hitman series.

Overview

The ICA is a multinational, extremely well-funded criminal organization providing assassination and mercenary services. They enjoy the cooperation of agencies such as the FBI, CIA, MI6, CSIS, NSA and even elements within the United Nations (UN), who often use their services to assassinate terrorists and criminals.

The Agency can be contacted by virtually anyone, from wealthy international companies (i.e. Hamilton-Lowe) and other agencies to even individuals seeking vendetta (i.e. Hannah Highmoore's parents).

The Agency uses "handlers", such as Diana Burnwood, as the middle-man with its agents. They provide professional freelance operatives like 47 with electronic correspondence and mission briefings.

History

When and how the ICA is founded is unknown.

The ICA makes their first chronological appearance in the prequel comic, Hitman: Birth of the Hitman, when ICA agent Erich Soders rescues Diana Burnwood and has her recruited as a handler.

In 1999, after he hijacks one of their operations, the ICA reach out to Agent 47 and eventually recruit him as an agent.

Agent Agent 47 is sent on contracts against various crime lords and criminals, who turn out to be four of his Five Fathers. 47 then assassinates his fifth father, Otto Wolfgang Ort-Meyer and leaves the Agency to live a peaceful life with Father Emilio Vittorio.

Agent 47's plans are dashed after Vittorio is kidnapped and he returns to the ICA for help. The ICA sends him on various contracts in exchange for their help and 47 eventually discovers his "uncle" Sergei Zavorotko was behind Vittorio's kidnapping. 47 saves Vittorio but leaves the church to formally work for the ICA.

In 2006, Agent 47 completes several more contracts for the ICA as they start to be thinned out by the Franchise, a rival assassination agency. Diana fakes 47's death, has him massacre the Franchise at his funeral and reforms the ICA. 47 later returns to the Agency.

In 2013, Diana betrays the ICA to save Victoria, a clone created by the ICA. Agent 47 is sent to assassinate her, but fakes her assassination and assassinates ICA regional director Benjamin Travis. Nevertheless, Diana and Agent 47 are allowed back in.

In 2019, Agent 47 takes on four contracts before the ICA discovers they were all linked to a Shadow Client. This leads to them discovering the existence of Providence and the betrayal of now Director Erich Soders, the latter of whom the assassinated.

Following this, Providence hires the ICA to assassinate the Shadow Client's allies. However, after 47 discovers the Shadow Client is his long-lost clone brother, Subject 6 (under the alias Lucas Grey), he and Diana covertly betray the ICA to work with the Shadow Client, assassinating Providence members, kidnapping Arthur Edwards and deciphering the identities of the Partners.

In 2021, after discovering that Agent 47 and Diana have gone rogue once again, the ICA send twelve agents to eliminate Lucas Grey, and his partner Olivia Hall. As well as Agent 47. Lucas Grey ultimately commits suicide, knowing his promise to destroy Providence had been fulfilled. Agent 47 saves Hall by eliminating five agents as a message to the ICA, after which the remaining agents are evacuated. Hall and Agent 47 proceed to hack into the ICA's servers, located in Chongqing, exposing them to the world. With most of their operatives killed or arrested, they presumably collapsed.
