Jasper Knight is a target that appears in the 2016 release HITMAN™.
Knight was world famous chess master who murdered the Soviet ambassador to the US. The ambassador was planning to defect to the West, and Knight, a Soviet spy working under order from the KGB, ingeniously poisoned the ambassador with ricin-coated chess pieces during a private match.
The assassin, ICA's training director Erich Soders during his active years, caught up with Knight at a remote airfield in communist Cuba where he was meeting his KGB contact and assassinated him.
- If the player disguises as the KGB Officer and gets Knight to follow Agent 47 into the communications, room, he will use the alias "Blind Tailor", a reference to Tommy Clemenza (Tommy the Tailor) from Hitman: Absolution
- His name might be a reference to former soundtrack composer for all the previous Hitman games Jesper Kyd.
