Kalvin Ritter, also known as the Sparrow, is a reenacted target and the main antagonist in the Hitman tutorial misisons Guided Training and Freeform Training.
Little is known of the past of Kalvin Ritter, the mysterious jewel thief known as the Sparrow. A Barbados native, Ritter was part of the Yardbirds, an international jewel thief gang led by legendary Serbian bank robber Aleksander Kovak.
Ritter was a natural cat burgler: athletic, charismatic and if need to be, ruthless, having no qualms about injuring or killing security personnel.
After the Yardbirds disbanded, Ritter found work as an art collector in Florida. He continued his line of work as a thief, stealing millions of dollars worth of priceless art.
In 1998, Ritter was prepared to retire as a cat burgler. Unfortunately, a former client of his placed a contract on him after realising they bought a counterfeit Gorka from him. He was assassinated by an unknown ICA agent.
In 1999, the ICA ran a series of tests on the then Initiate Agent 47, in which Ritter's assassination was played out.
- Ritter has a girlfriend, Callista.
- While Kalvin Ritter is portrayed by a black man in Guided Training and Freeform Training, the opening cutscene of "The Last Yardbird" portray him as a white man.
