|~ Joanne Bayswater|
Joanne Bayswater (also known as the Iconoclast) is the 2nd elusive target of Hitman 3. She is a sociopathic hitwoman starting her own assassination agency.
Little is known about Joanne Bayswater's past. was born in Sutton, England,in a middle class family and was sent to a boarding school at seven. She excelled in school and studied language at Cambridge. She started working for an unidentified assassination agency, but the collateral damage she caused prompted her handler to protest to the board of directors. Offended, she went rogue from the organisation.
In the present, Bayswater started her own organization and attended a gala in Mendoza, Argentina to find clients. There she was assassinated by Agent 47.
Bayswater is shown to be a cruel, uncaring woman, willing to take on any contract for the right price and even reminiscing on her murders. She is also cautious, checking to see if her food is poisoned and scolding her bodyguard for taking a break.
- Bayswater knew an "old friend" of 47's named Robert Montgomery, who is presumably Agent Montgomery, who led the ICA Agents in "Apex Predator".
- Why, when and how she became a hitwoman is unknown.
- Bayswater shares similarities to previous Hitman characters:
- To Mark Faba. Both are English assassins assigned as targets for 47. However, while Faba is hands-on and spends his missions vigorously preparing for a hit, Bayswater has her employees perform the contracts. In addition, Faba is creative and elaborate with his kills while Bayswater eschews creativity for simple methods such as sniping.
- To Agent 47, both are enigmatic master assassins. However, while 47 takes care to avoid collateral damage, Bayswater revels in it. And while 47 wears a black suit, Bayswater wears a white one.
- To Diana Burnwood. Both are English handlers to assassins. In contrast to Diana's good nature and warm tone, Bayswater declines hearing about motives for her contracts and never addresses her assassin by name.
- In spite of being a master assassin, she doesn't retaliate if she discovered 47's intention to kill her, instead cowering and fleeing like most of the other targets in World of Assassination trilogy.
