Terrence Chesterfield, also known as The Liability, was the 3rd Elusive Target in HITMAN III. He was a disgraced English building inspector walking around Club Hölle in Berlin, Germany to inspect the site.
He was voiced by Richard Stemp.
Pampered since childhood, Terrence Chesterfield obtained his job as a building safety inspector through his parents' connections. Unwilling to put even the littlest of efforts into his job, Chesterfield deliberately ignored any potential dangers, breezing through his job so that he could return home early to watch his shows. Corrupt landlords, managers and property owners found him to be a useful tool as his lax inspections prevented them from having to spend money on renovations.
When buildings that Chesterfield "inspected" suffered accidents, collapses and explosions, a local landlords' association "charitably" paid for his defence and got him acquitted. However, now completely disgraced in England, Chesterfield relocated to Berlin, where he continued to work as a building inspector. However, members of a private fund used to help Chesterfield's victims believed that his incompetence would lead to another accident and put a contract out on him.
At the time of his death, Chesterfield was assigned to inspect Club Hollë. As usual, he puts in minimal effort: accusing a injured man of faking his accident, taking naps and ignoring potential hazards. He is followed around by Marion Keen, the daughter of one of his victims (presumably placed to spy on him), who is frustrated by his incompetence and laziness.
- He also heavily resembles actor Toby Jones, who also played Lanfranco Cassetti in Murder on The Orient Express, Culverton Smith in Sherlock, Gunnar Eversol in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Dream Lord in Doctor Who and Dr. Arnim Zola in Marvel Cinematic Universe.
- Chesterfield represented the sin of Sloth.
- It was revealed by Diana that Chesterfield's actions caused even more deaths than Agent 47's body counts. It was a particularly shocking comparasion, considering 47 was a professional assassin, who only killed targets in his mission and never involved in causing too much deaths among the non-related public.
- In contrast, Chesterfield's victims were all innocent people died because of his laziness and apathy, making Chesterfield one of the most "prolific" killers in all of the Elusive Targets, as well as one of the most heartless Elusive Targets ever.
- However, unlike the other elusive targets, Chesterfield is not outwardly malicious or seeking to cause harm.
- He shared some similarities (and might be a reference/homage character) to Joseph Clarence from Hitman: Blood Money. Both of them were involved in the structural failures and caused deaths because of their uncaring nature towards the incident.
- However, Clarence was only responsible for one single incident and was portrayed as a somewhat more sympathetic villain, shown to be remorseful over it when 47 revealed that it was a casualty's relative that wanted him dead.
- On the contrary, Chesterfield was responsible for way more incidents and deaths because of his uncaring and lazy nature, but he showed remorse over none of them, making him far more horrible and heartless than Clarence.
- Whether Chesterfield has an undiagnosed physical ailment, a mental condition, was being bribed or was simply that lazy is unknown.
