Richard J. Magee is the sixteenth elusive target in HITMAN (2016) and later returned as a Legacy Elusive Target in HITMAN 2 (2018), the latter of where he appeared at the same time with Anthony L. Troutt.
Richard Magee was a manipulative self-help guru and counselor. He was also a con artist and fraud, who combined a fatherly attitude with a strong understanding of manipulative psychology to manipulate his victims. He drove wedges between inter-vivos-fund babies and their parents and he makes an excellent living in doing so.
Several of his protégés were former members of the Church of Ascendants, though that organization does not seem to be directly involved in Magee's activities. His current mark is a man named Keith Kebble. Keith's parents hired the ICA and Agent 47 to assassinate Magee in order to save their son (and his trust fund).
Outwardly charming but narcissistic, manipulative and cruel, Magee pretends to be a compassionate mentor when he's really leading people to financial ruin for his own personal gain. Magee makes people emotionally dependent on him so he can cake control of their financial assets. A tactic of his is to make people abandon their families so they can give him control of their money.
- Although being paired with Troutt together in the mission's HITMAN 2 remake, and was stated to be partners in crime, Magee had no direct interaction with Troutt in the mission.
- While Magee himself must be killed, the Client's son and the Client's Lawyer must not be touched, or the contract would be nullified.
- Despite being the 16th elusive target to appear in the original release, The Guru re-appeared as the ninth target during the reactivations. Although no official statement was made, the reactivation lined up with the release of the Hitman Spring Pack. It is believe that iOi simply wanted an elusive target that took place in Sapienza, Italy to be available for players new to the Spring Pack.
