Carlton Smith is a recurring ally throughout the Hitman franchise.
He is a completely inept Central Intelligence Agency agent, who is constantly being captured, tortured and eventually rescued by Agent 47.
Most of the time Smith reveals useful information to the player after rescuing, which allows the player to move on in their mission.
Smith is generally friendly towards Agent 47, however 47 is far from warm towards him, as he constantly has to rescue him. Once, Agent 47 even held him at gunpoint and threatened to kill him (in the cutscene following A Dance with the Devil). Smith pays 47 with diamonds to stop the assassination of Tom Stewart, the President of the United States. Agent Smith is quite patriotic, as seen by his American flag boxers and how he referred to his contract on Mark Parchezzi III and Daniel Morris as for the greater good of America.
Carlton Smith was born to Donald L. Smith and Karen (Paderewski) Smith on September 3rd 1970 in Sandwich, Massachusetts. He has two siblings, Anne (Smith) Cooper and Jerri Smith.
So far, Agent Smith has appeared in every game except Hitman: Absolution:
- As a captive that must be rescued in Hitman: Codename 47, Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, Hitman: Contracts, and Hitman: Blood Money.
- As an accomplice in a mission in Hitman 2: Silent Assassin.
- As a one-time employer of Agent 47 in Hitman: Blood Money.
- In Situs Inversus of HITMAN™, Agent 47 can save Smith from a morgue freezer, whereupon Smith will give 47 an RFID chip that unlocks all doors.
Hitman: Codename 47
He can be seen in two levels of this game, The Lee Hong Assassination, and The Setup. In The Lee Hong Assassination, he is being tortured in the basement in his American flag boxers. In The Setup, he is drugged and confined to the mental ward, and wears a hospital gown.
Hitman 2: Silent Assassin
He is again stripped down to his boxers and tortured in Tubeway Torpedo, and after being rescued, he disguises himself as his own persecutor General Mikhail Bardachenko.
In his following appearance, Temple City Ambush, he is unconvincingly disguised in the Deewana Ji cult's orange robes and sits in his carpet shop hideout, alone and drunk. He laments over his humiliation of the previous three times 47 had to save him, and bargains with him - he provides 47 logistics in exchange for killing some assassins.
He is seen in The Lee Hong Assassination, a redux of his appearance in Hitman: Codename 47.
Hitman: Blood Money
Agent Smith plays a more prominent role in this game. He first appears in Flatline, when he goes undercover in a rehab clinic and Mark Parchezzi III (disguised as a doctor) confines him to the mental ward. He makes his second, and final appearance at the end of A Dance with the Devil, when he pleads with 47 to accept the mission Amendment XXV, going so far as to provide 47 with the briefing for said mission.
Hitman (2007 movie)
Smith dons a more professional look. He is older with white hair and seems to have lost his habit of always being in trouble. 47 arranges a meeting between the two of them and Nika in a diner. Smith sits opposite to Nika, who holds several files, while 47 talks via a cellphone from a sniper's nest across the street. 47 proposes to kill Udre Belicoff in exchange for a "small favor" from the CIA. After killing Mikhail Belicoff, 47 is arrested by Interpol. However, in transit, the vehicle is stopped by the CIA for a period brief enough for 47 to escape and it is not until this time that it is revealed that this particular CIA agent is Agent Smith. He is portrayed by the actor James Faulkner.
He appears in Blake Dexter's file for the ICA. His first name is revealed and his hair is now brown. He also still wears the sleeveless shirt from Hitman: Blood Money in his profile photo. Though the trailer shows a part of his file along with that of Stallion Armaments late CEO Richard Strong and someone named Clark Wayne, he has no role in the actual game.
Agent Smith appears in Hitman: Absolution, though most likely as a glitch. If you take the police uniform on Rosewood Orphanage, the police officer will heavily resemble Agent Smith.
He can be found in Situs Inversus, in which he is trapped in one of the body refrigerators in the hospital morgue. He explains to Agent 47 that the CIA assigned him to investigate illegal organ harvesting by Dr. Katashi "The Curator" Ito (a journey that took him to Rio de Janeiro at one point), and had gotten very close before Ito captured him and held him captive. Smith, thanks Agent 47 for freeing him again, rewards him with a keycard that can open every door at the GAMA facility. He can also be selected as a target in Contracts Mode.
