|~ Oybek Nabazov|
Oybek Nabazov is the main antagonist of Patient Zero, an expansion pack for Hitman (2016). He is the leader of a cult named the Liberation.
Not much is known about Oybek other than he has started numerous cults over several decades, causing hundreds of deaths. He has recently turned to constructing a virus that could potentially wipe out all of humanity if it was allowed to spread, using his cult as the catalyst for doing so.
Oybek, alongside his second-in-command, Sister Yulduz, were assassinated by Agent 47 in Bangkok following a contract from a client sent to Diana Burnwood. However, Oybek's death had released a message to his followers all over the world through electronic devices, in order to carry on his plan for spreading his manmade virus.
The following targets, particularly those following Oybek's cult, could be seen mumbling his name as some sort of prayers.
Nabazov is a heartless, omnicidal monster who takes sadistic pleasure of causing impressionable people to kill themselves. He has no reason for trying to kill billions of people, other than his own twisted amusement. He is utterly unworried about his potential death, seeing himself as the catalyst for a viral outbreak. Despite his sadism and sociopathic behavior, he is also effortlessly charismatic and very intelligent, being able to lure countless people into his cults by preying on their insecurities. He has utterly no regard for anyone's safety, not even his own, making him an immensely dangerous antagonist.
Nabazov has a penchant for telling stories, all of which have the message of death and self sacrifice. His speeches are soft-spoken and gentle, hiding the sadism of his actions. The only time he loses his composure is ironically when he is threatened with death, where he will beg for his life.
- Whilst he is the main antagonist of Patient Zero expansion pack, Oybek Nabazov was one of the first targets to be eliminated by 47. It was his death that triggered the following event and the race against the clock to eliminate Oybek's followers and all those would might become the titular Patient Zero of Nabazov Virus.
- It was implied in HITMAN 2 (2018) that Providence was backing Nabazov's plan.
- Had Nabazov succeeded, he would have had the highest kill count of the series. Before he was assassinated, he'd already caused hundreds of deaths from cult suicides.
- One of the leaked unused briefings for the game revealed that Nabazov, alongside three other cultists including Brother Akram, was originally planned to be targets in an Elusive Target mission known as "The Doomsayer". The mission was later scrapped, with Nabazov, Akram and other unused Elusive Targets became mission targets when the Patient Zero expansion took place.
- According to his unused Elusive Target briefing, the cults Nabazov previously led were the Gamil Cult in 1982, the Celestial Revelation in 1989, Unity Gate in 1993, the Nation of Nineteen in 2002, and Way of the Beneficent Patriarch in 2013.
