The Ether Biotech Corporation, often shortened to Ether, is an international pharmaceutical company. Its headquarters are most likely in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Ether has a prominent appearance in the mission World of Tomorrow, where two employees and a DNA virus created by the company are the main targets. Allegedly under a contract from one of Ether's stockholders, 47 invades their field lab in the Italian town of Sapienza, to assassinate the two scientists, Silvio Caruso and Francesca De Santis, and destroys the DNA virus.
However, after the assassination, an unidentified agent investigating the assassination reveals that the Ether corporation management board had been largely unaware of the DNA virus project, and guesses that the project was leaked by someone from the lab.
Ether's stocks plummeted after the destruction of the virus, as revealed in a news shot in the intro to A Gilded Cage.
