Steven Bradley is a minor antagonist in HITMAN 2 (2018), appearing as one of the two secondary targets (alongside Ljudmila Vetrova) of the latter's eight and final story mission (as well as the second and final Expansion Pass story mission) "The Last Resort".
Born in a suburban family, Steven Bradley barely scraped through college, not due to lack of intelligence but rather that he spent most of his time programming and surfing. As a sophomore, he joined a startup web company and worked as a programmer.
While the company failed, Bradley managed to create the backbone of a login system, which he patented and convinced a social media corporation to adapt, making him a millionaire. Alas, Bradley's lavish lifestyle started draining his finances, forcing him to turn to criminal means.
Using his own invention, Bradley stole data of hundreds of millions of people, selling it to foreign governments, marketing companies and the dark web. It's through the last of which where he met private investigator Tyson Williams. Williams later recruited Bradley for his "online reputation management services".
As Haven Island's chief programmer, Bradley is charge of developing tools and methods to innovate Haven's capabilities and circumvent the authorities. When he's not working, he jogs around the sunny island.
A subversion of the atypical nerd, Bradley is sporty and outgoing, if somewhat brash. He is in a relationship with Ljudmila Vetrova, who he seems to genuinely care about. He's also quick to throw people under the bus, such as his former business partners and Tyson.
Bradley is somewhat self-absorbed, as his daredevil personality constantly causes property damage around Haven Island, much to the chagrin of the other residents. Because of this, many of them have demanded he be fired or contained, to no avail. Most of Bradley's deaths involve using his extravagant lifestyle against him, such as killing him with his speedboat, bench press, or jacuzzi.
