The Yardbirds are the main antagonists of the Hitman 2 mission "The Last Yardbirds".
The Yardbirds, led by Serbian thief Aleksander Kovak, consisted of Barbadian cat burglar Kalvin Ritter, English military engineer Dorian Lang, French Interpol officer Guillaume Maison and Native American stuntwoman Doris Lee. Concealing their identities with bird masks, they conducted countless heists and built a reputation as fearsome, ruthlessly efficient thieves willing to spill blood.
However, after the Yardbirds raided the Shamal Casino, they were hunted by criminals and forced into hiding, burying the casino loot in the desert and making a pact to retrieve it. After Maison framed another gang, he, Lang and Kovac retired, Ritter and Lee following suit later. Ritter was subsequently assassinated in Sydney, Australia, by an angry client.
Decades later, Lang, Maison and Lee conspired to dig the casino loot up without Kovac. Meeting at Maison's mansion to finalise their plans, they were assassinated by Agent 47 (or Knight and Stone), contracted by the ICA.
Kovac recovered the casino loot and attempted to convert it into bitcoin, but was caught and arrested by Interpol, putting an end to the Yardbirds.
