|~ Lee Hong shouting at his minions, after recognizing 47 in Hitman: Contracts|
Lee Hong (Chinese: 李洪), also known as the Man With No Conscience, is a major antagonist in Hitman: Codename 47 and a flashback antagonist in Hitman: Contracts. He was a Chinese crime lord who served as the leader of the Red Dragon Triad, and one of Agent 47's five fathers.
He is the first main target of 47 (contracted by Dr. Otto Wolfgang Ort-Meyer) and is successfully assassinated after a succession of false flag operations.
Lee Hong was the leader of a Chinese criminal organization known the Red Dragon Triad situated within the region of Hong Kong. Probably born in 1930. Like his FFL comrades Otto Wolfgang Ort-Meyer, Pablo Belisario Ochoa, Frantz Fuchs and Arkadij Jegorov, he served in the French Foreign Legion from 1950-1955.
Two weeks after he returned from service, Lee Hong went back to Hong Kong and poisoned his own uncle and usurped the Red Dragon Triad's leadership, taking absolute control over the triad and large parts of Hong Kong since the early 1970s. It earned him the infamy of being known as the Man With No Conscience.
Lee later joined Ort-Meyer's project alongside his other FFL partners, providing funding in exchange for spare organs (which is why he appears young and healthy for his age) and potentially having a clone assassin to help his operations. This makes him one of 47's five genetic "fathers".
By 1990, however, Lee was horrified when he discovered Ort-Meyer's true agenda to create a group of clone assassins, and thus he decided to discontinue his investment, believing Ort-Meyer had lost his mind. After him and other three of the Five Fathers had quit, Ort-Meyer decided to betray them by ordering 47 to assassinate them all.
After inflitrating into Hong Kong, 47 instigated a gang war between the Red Dragon Triad and their rival organization, the Blue Lotus Triad, to isolate Lee so that he could kill him in Wang Fou restaurant even with every obstacles. After 47 killed Lee and stole his jade figurine, the Red Dragon Triad collapsed into chaos.
- Lee Hong is the first major antagonist fought in Hitman series, since those eliminated before him had smaller roles in the story.
- Lee Hong's design is an allusion to the infamous and controversial Fu Manchu.
- Throughout his appearances, Hong only converse in Chinese (albeit in Cantonese dialect), and his letter to Frantz Fuchs is written in English.
