Colonel Bruce Ashton is Charlie Wilkins' head of security in Hitman: Damnation. He was formerly a member of the US Armed Forces and served in the Gulf and Iraq wars, though it is subject to debate whether he actually became a Colonel. He retired shortly after, continued living in the Middle East and started a successful private security company for VIPs in the Mediterranean. When Agent 47 is undercover at the Church of Will, Ashton is the first to confront 47 on his true identity and tries to have him killed, despite Wilkins' insistence on waiting for a better opportunity. 47 kills Ashton at the Hilton hotel in Cyprus, while he was traveling with Wilkins on business.
