Jade Nguyen is a major antagonist of Hitman: Absolution. She was an employee of the International Contract Agency, who dreamt of rising through the ranks at the ICA, and thus, became Benjamin Travis' assistant.
Jade's origin story had been kept enigmatic, but her family surname Nguyen is a common last name of Vietnamese origin. Jade worked as a field assistant for Agent 47's new handler, Benjamin Travis, but hoped to rise in the ranks of the Agency.
After 47's betrayal, Jade becomes Travis' right-hand in his plan of eliminating 47 and retrieve Victoria. It is presumed that Jade planned on taking Travis' position as Head of Division. According to her psych profile, she was highly ambitious and possessed a high level of strategic reasoning.
In a way, Jade is much more competent than Travis and is very ambitious, attempting to climb up higher in the ranks of ICA, and the only antagonistic factor is that she assists Travis on his plan on 47 and Victoria. According to her actress, Shannyn Sossamon, Jade often disagrees with Travis.
47 notes that Jade would likely be all too willing to betray Travis, and under different circumstances would make a useful ally. Unfortunately for her, the fact she knows about Victoria means she knows too much to be allowed to live.
