Ji-Hu is the 25th Elusive target in HITMAN (2016) and HITMAN 2 (2018), appearing as the main antagonist of The Fugitive mission. He is a notoriously elusive State Security Department member, currently on the run from several intelligence agencies.
Ji-Hu was a State Security Department operative, who is implied to be either a North Korean or Khandanyan agent. He was notorious for his mysterious identity and evasive personality. The files of ICA link him to a number of hybrid conflict operations in mainland China, South Korea and Japan.
In a "touching example of international cooperation" (quoth Diana Burnwood), the intelligence services of all three nations have placed a combined Contract with the ICA for the target’s elimination. The Agency eventually tracked down Ji-Hu in GAMA Hospital from Hokaiddo, Japan, and he was among three patients doing plastic surgery.
The Fugitive's appearances is randomly chosen between three patients, each with an unique facial reconstruction surgery, one with rhinolasty (nose plastic surgery), one with otoplasty (forehead plastic surgery) and one with keratoplasty (eye plastic surgery).
The three patients have three randomly assigned routes, changing with every start or restart. Agent 47 can gain information through the hospital's computer in order to allow him and Diana to identify Ji-Hu correctly before assassinating him.
- It is implied that he is North Korean, but it is also possible that he is from the Hitman version of North Korea, Khandanyang.
- Poisoning a specific wine glass in GAMA is seen as the easiest way to kill the target, but runs the risk of poisoning a non-target, which then requires a restart or the player to utilize an alternate way to kill the target.
