The Partners (composed by the trio of Marcus StuyvesantCarl Ingram, and Alexa Christine Carlisle) are the leaders of Providence and the overarching antagonists of the Hitman videogame series, serving as the unseen overarching antagonists of Hitman: Codename 47 and the central antagonists of the World of Assassination trilogy.

They were first directly mentioned in HITMAN (2016) and would serve as the unseen overarching antagonists, before making their first formal appearance in HITMAN 2 (2018) as the main antagonists, and later as the secondary antagonists of HITMAN III (2021).

In HITMAN III, Ingram and Stuyvesant would be the two targets of the first story mission "On Top of the World", while Carlisle would be the target of the second story mission "Death in the Family".

History

Early parts

The Partners are Providence's powerful trio of top leadership and the representatives of its three founding families. According to Arthur Edwards, their Constant, these three families--the Stuyvesants, the Ingrams, and the Carlisles--secretly pooled their resources for over several decades since the end of World War II, which allowed them to effectively control the workings of the world.

The Partners' identities, and their very existence, are largely kept secret, even from high-ranking members of Providence. They communicate with their operatives via couriers known as Heralds, and they are supervised by the Constant. In keeping with their anonymity, the Partners conferred with their Constant via virtual reality, broadcasting their digital signals to a suspended conference facility in an unknown mountainous region as of 2019.

HITMAN 2 (2018)

After discovering the true role of Providence, Agent 47 and Diana Burnwood forged a begrudging partnership with Lucas Grey and Olivia Hall, and manged to capture Edwards and make him reveal the Partners' identities.

As a result of their Constant being taken captive, the Partners faked their deaths and wired the money to their accounts through Haven to create new identities and go into hiding, with all of their personal data being stored in the New York branch of Milton-Fitzpatrick's investment bank. 47 managed to assassinate Athena Savalas, the bank's director, and the entire Haven management triumvirate after successfully gaining the Partners' data and full access to Haven's servers to deduce their new identities respectively with Grey's assistance.

However, after the infiltration into Haven's servers, Diana and Olivia discovered all of the Partners' financial properties had been embezzled by Edwards, who had decided to betray the Partners after losing trust in them and managed to escape by bribing one of his guard captors. Grey was unaware at that point and told 47 that things are still going to go as planned.

HITMAN III (2021)

Thanks to Haven, the Partners had gone into hiding on the world's tallest skyscraper named the Burj Al-Ghazali (also known as the Sceptre), situated in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, as guests of the Sheikh Omar Al-Ghazali. Using the Milton-Fitzpatrick bank data and Haven's servers her companions previously gained access to, Olivia managed to trace their current whereabouts. As such, 47 and Grey head to an airfield in Dubai not far from the Burj Al-Ghazali in order to use one of the planes embedded there so they can HALO jump towards the skyscraper.

As 47 and Grey dive towards the Sceptre, they witness Alexa Carlisle flee in her helicopter, with Diana informing them why once they parachute to the exterior of the building; Edwards had previously escaped and embezzled all of the Partners' controlling and silent shares, and has since been seizing Providence's assets and resources. Carlisle, upon discovering this, would have gone to contain the situation.

Diana states that she and Olivia will keep track of her, and tells the pair that the plan will remain the same: infiltrate the Burj Al-Ghazali and assassinate the Partners that are still in the building, Marcus Stuyvesant and Carl Ingram. 47, after much infiltration and planning after getting his bearings, manages to assassinate the two Partners with Grey's help.

With Stuyvesant and Ingram out of the picture, 47 and Grey head to Dartmoor, England, as thanks to Diana and Olivia, they managed to track Carlisle. As they head off, Diana recieves a call from Edwards, who taunts her with his escape. She then accuses him of plotting the Partners' downfall, with Edwards justifying that his superiors were complacent, stuck in their ways. He then monologues to her about how Providence can be an 'agent of change'.

47 and Grey arrive in Dartmoor to Carlisle's residence of Thornbridge Manor, the place which was revealed to be where the three families gathered and founded Providence itself shortly after WWII ended. Carlisle has decided to go into hiding there and secure her family legacy, all whilst trying to figure out how to deal with Edwards' betrayal.

Grey heads to the estate's nearby field HQ to secure it and block out any calls coming in & out of the estate, while 47 infiltrates the mansion. Through one of three opportunities to get close to Carlisle, manages to assassinate her, and also gets her case file on Edwards. Suddenly, Diana's comms strangely go silent, and 47 soon hears Grey telling him to run and also hears gunshots before being cut off.

47 rushes to Grey's position, where he discreetly takes out a CICADA soldier and disguises himself, and discovers that there is a team of CICADA mercenaries sent by Edwards to capture Grey. 47 attempts to intervene and save his wounded friend, but due to overwhelming numbers, Grey gestures to 47 to not interfere, but the latter attempts to rescue him regardless. Seeing 47 ready his sidearm, and unwilling to let his friend get killed, Grey quickly takes one of the soldiers' pistols and presses it against his chin, yelling to the mercenaries to "tell the Constant to start running" before pulling the trigger, killing himself instantly. Before he would be found by 47, he spoke to him one final time through his comms, telling him to not trust Diana and instead find Olivia to rendezvous with her.

Meanwhile, Edwards, flanked by two bodyguards, breaks into Diana's current location, and shows her a 1989 report on her parents' assassinations (which reveals to her that 47 was the one sent to kill them) in order to manipulate her to his side. Elsewhere, 47 contacts Olivia and informs her of Grey's death, and to rendezvous at Berlin but also remain hidden until he gets there, as they're all that remains in taking down Providence.

With the Partners now gone, Edwards takes over Providence as it's new leader in order to fill the power vacuum and would plan to use it for his own agenda, essentially making the damage the leadership triumvirate's demise had delivered to Providence nothing more than a minor blow instead of a major one.

During 47's hallucinations which occur after Diana, (feigning loyalty to Providence) has him captured and delivered to Edwards later on, the Partners are shown in one hallucination staring at 47, with the Milton-Fitzpatrick investment bank' (New York branch) office clock window behind them, and then in another where all of the main story targets that he had killed throughout the World of Assassination trilogy crowd him.

Trivia

  • As revealed by Lucas Grey, the previous iteration of the Partners (comprised by the trio of Eckhart Stuyvesant, Douglas Ingram, and Thomas Alexander Carlisle) are Otto Wolfgang Ort-Meyer's superiors, and thus, the true masterminds behind his cloning projects as well as the origins of Agent 47. As such, they can even be considered the posthumous overarching antagonists of not only both Hitman: Codename 47 and the World of Assassination trilogy, but essentially the entire Hitman series itself in general.
    • However, despite the current Partners iteration's shared role in Agent 47's origins, Alexa Carlisle is the closest to being the sole overarching antagonist of the series as a whole, because she directly demanded Ort-Meyer to turn his clones (including 47) into professional killers and, above all, ordering to have their memories wiped, which is directly responsible for the entire story and assassin career of 47 taking place.
      • Alexa's father, Thomas Carlisle, is the sole posthumous overarching antagonist of the series as a whole for gathering the three founding families to form Providence.
