Think, Graves! How did they get to you?
~ Penelope Graves.
Oh wow! Olivia Hall's amazing! I wonder if we'll be friends.
~ Graves on Olivia Hall.
Get that f--king thing out of my face!
~ Graves to Agent 47 if held at gunpoint. (determinant)


Penelope Graves is a minor antagonist in HITMAN (2016), appearing as one of the three secondary antagonists (alongside Ezra Berg and Maya Parvati) and one of the four targets of the latter's fifth story mission "Freedom Fighters". She was a rogue Interpol agent working for the mysterious Shadow Client.

She was voiced by Elsie Bennett, who later voiced Sister Yulduz in the game's Patient Zero expansion, Ljudmila Vetrova in the game's sequel HITMAN 2 (2018), and Imogen Royce and Joanne Bayswater in the game's threequel HITMAN III (2021).

Biography

With an IQ in the upper 190s, Penelope Graves was always an outsider meant for great things. She could speak fluently at the age of six months and studied college level physics at the age of five. However, she gravitated towards logics, game theory and criminal psychology.

After graduating from Cambridge she became a criminal profiler with the Metropolitan Police Service and later transferred to Interpol where she rose to become one of their most prolific anti-terror analysts. Here she briefly led the international manhunt against terrorist Sean Rose, whose network she inexplicably later joined.

The ICA's sources at Interpol denied that Graves should be involved in any sort of sting operation. However, according to rumors, Graves recently discovered evidence about systematic corruption and power abuse at the highest levels of the UN, only to be shut down by her superiors. Graves was allegedly disillusioned by the incident. A highly analytical thinker, she cares deeply about order and can't tolerate a broken system. This may very well be when she switched sides. But how she got in contact with Rose, or what shared cause or agenda might justify her betrayal, is as of yet unknown.

Personality

According to Graves' own psychological profile, she is not only exceptionally intelligent but also deeply empathetic. She nevertheless shows a distinct moral fluidity, making her able to make choices in the service of the greater good that normal people would shy away from. When confronted with the classic trolley problem, Graves would push the fat man onto the tracks without hesitation.

Trivia

  • Penelope Graves remains to be one of the most popular and fan-favorite targets of the series. Many fans show their disappointment that there's no further exploration in Graves' motive in the game, neither is an alternate choice to recruit Graves instead of eliminating her, nor an opportunity to cause her and Maya Parvati interacting (and perhaps even killing) each other.
    • This was also referred in Graves' briefings, where Diana lamented that whilst Graves could be useful for the ICA, she had to be eliminated as "a contract is a contract".
