Agent 47 is an assassin who works for the International Contract Agency. He is the 47th clone created by Dr. Otto Wolfgang Ort-Meyer in a secret underground cloning lab. Agent 47 possesses a 47th chromosome which makes him more superior to the normal man. Agent 47 was established by Ort-Meyer himself as his first success, and thus, he raised 47 as his own son.
47's DNA contains the genes of French Foreign Legion. In his adulthood, Ort-Meyer purposefully let 47 escape his asylum, which was Ort-Meyer's cover for the cloning lab. After a year, Agent 47 was employed by the ICA, where he worked as a contract killer for many years.
