Tamara Vidal is a Providence Herald who serves as a supporting antagonist in HITMAN III, appearing as the secondary target of its fifth mission "The Farewell".
Tamara Vidal was born in the early 80s to an upper-middle class German-Argentinian family on the side of the juntas. She developed a meritocratic view of the world, in which the competent and intelligent should rule and the rest should follow.
Studying geo-politics in the USA, Vidal was cited by her instructor as the most gifted surveillance specialist of her generation at the Sherman Kent School for Intelligence Analysis. She was soon recruited into the CIA, where she reportedly engaged in enhanced interrogation techniques.
Returning to her home country, Vidal founded the "Future Federation", a far-right political party that swept the nation. This caught the eye of Arthur Edwards, the second-in-command, or Constant, of Providence, a mysterious organization controlling the world. Vidal resigned from her position and was recruited into Providence, starting drug wars and bribing politicians so the organization's activities go unnoticed.
After Edwards' manipulations left the Partners, Providence's leaders, dead, Vidal hoped to succeed him as Constant as he assumed his position as Providence's supreme head. Alas, she was not handpicked as one of the candidates for the honor, with Don Archibald Yates being in the lead, whereas Vidal would instead be assigned to look after Diana Burnwood, a newly-recruited Herald of Providence, by Edwards. Vidal and Yates would soon both meet their end at the hands of Burnwood's assassin, Agent 47.
Vidal is shown to be a cold, elitist, meritocratic, amoral woman, with a dark history. She does, however, strike a connection with Diana Burnwood over mutual curiosity and intellectual interest, and form a mutual respect with each other. While she still orders 47 to kill Vidal, Diana admits to feeling a tinge of regret.
Vidal is also loyal to Edwards, even when he passed her over as Constant. When Don Yates orders Diana killed in a secret Providence Herald meeting that can be triggered by doing one of the mission stories, Vidal stands up for her and openly defies Yates, resulting in her subsequent death at the hands of a guard on the latter's orders.
