Mark Parchezzi III is part of The Franchise like Mark Purayah II and is thought to be a leader figure of the organization. He is 47's nearest rival. Parchezzi is the best clone that the Franchise could produce, possessing super enhanced abilities similar or maybe superior to that of 47's but he is also a class 2 clone like Mark Purayah II and therefore dies after only 18 months of reaching maturity, it is revealed that Parchezzi is haunted by this fact and seeks to find a better cloning program in order to permanently supresss the aging process. His main goal was to wipe out the International Contract Agency and kill Agent 47 then acquire a sample of his blood, which holds the key to suppressing his rapid aging.
He presumably killed an ambassador, shown in a newspaper. The killer was simply described as "albino", so it could have been Mark I or Mark II.
Hitman: Blood Money
As explained by Agent Smith during the mission briefing of Amendment XXV, Parchezzi's last assassination target, which he received from the director of The Franchise Alexander Leland Cayne, was Tom Stewart, the President of the United States. Cayne's plan was to place the acting Vice President and loyal Franchise operative Daniel Morris, in the presidency in order to advance their agenda. Agent Smith, knowing this, hired 47 to eliminate Parchezzi and Morris.
This assassination attempt was thwarted by 47 when he killed Morris, and then went after Parchezzi himself. The two first confronted each other in the Oval Office, at which time Parchezzi tried to play on 47's humanity by pointing out the similarities between them. 47 was unmoved by this, however, and Parchezzi fled to the roof of the White House, where he was gunned down by his rival. Afterwards, Parchezzi was blamed for Morris' assassination.
Parchezzi's physical appearance is that of a caucasian albino male. Because of his albinism he has no pigment in his hair or skin. Facially, Parchezzi does not resemble 47. Parchezzi also sports his hair in a seemingly "Undercut" style. In Hitman: Absolution, his 'ICA File' states his height as 187 cm (6 ft 1½ in).
- Physical Enhancements: Mark Parchezzi III is the best clone that the Franchise could produce. He has been genetically engineered to have superior strength, speed and physical functions than that of Mr. 47. He is also hypersensitive, hyperactive, adaptive and highly determined and focused, similar to his predecessor Mark Purayah II. He is encoded with nearly every skill of Mr. 47 and therefore is his rival.
- Heightened Strength: His muscle stature and bone strength are greater than that of an normal man, which combined with rigorous training, makes his physical strength inhuman.
- Heightened Speed: His movement speed is inhuman. He was able to outrun Agent 47 and reach the roof of the White House much sooner than Agent 47, despite the fact that Agent 47 is inhumanly fast as well.
- Heightened Resilience: One of his most noteworthy traits that make him far superior to Mr. 47 are the resilience and durability of his physical constitution. He is barely fazed by attacks from small firearms or blunt force trauma.
- Heightened Metabolism: His metabolic healing is also inhuman, similarly to Mr. 47.
- Accelerated Aging: He was able to rapidly mature into an adult within a very short timespan.
- Impersonation: His stealth skills are maybe superior to that of 47's as despite him being albino, he can easily blend in his mission surroundings without attracting too much attention or suspicion.
- Martial Artist: Like 47, he excels in combat. He attacks much more aggressively than guards, and can easily gun down 47 in the open. Unlike other enemies, his weapon cannot be snatched by 47. However, he can still be held as a human shield.
- Marksmanship: He is an extremely skilled marksman (though not on par with 47, who is a perfect marksman). Despite being armed with only a pistol, he is able to fire it with impeccable accuracy, even from afar.
- Battle Tactics: He is an expert in battle tactics, having strategically planted RU-AP mines around the area. He also does not immediately attack 47 when confronted, choosing to play with his emotions instead.
- Vast Resources: He also has a vast amount of resources at his disposal, primarily due to the highly influential connections, inexhaustible wealth and arsenal of advanced technology and other essential resources provided by the Franchise.
- Albinism: Being an albino, he suffers from medical problems associated with albinism. He has poor eyesight, and must wear specialized glasses at all times. His skin is also vulnerable to sunlight, and because of this, he does his missions at night. Additionally, his highly conspicuous appearance as an albino makes his assignments far more challenging. Several NPCs can be overheard talking about him.
- Heightened Mortality: Despite his augmented / extraordinary physical powers, he does have one powerful limitation, his own mortality via accelerated aging, which will kill him by aging him to dust within a span of possibly several years.
- Obsession with Agent 47: He is obsessed with finding a way to physically become exactly like Agent 47, so as to greatly increase his lifespan & possibly become physically more powerful.
Parchezzi's style of dress appears to be a mockery of Agent 47, being a color reverse of 47's style. Parchezzi's clothing and accessories include:
- White suit jacket
- Black silk shirt
- Black silk necktie
- White dress slacks
- White leather shoes with black soles
- Round, wire-frame, red-tinted sunglasses
- A gold collar clip
- Black boxer briefs
Additionally, his weapon of choice, the Custom 1911 has a reverse tone compared to Agent 47's Silverballers. While Agent 47 prefers to use his Silverballers, dual and suppressed; Parchezzi uses his 1911 single, unsuppressed and loaded with magnum ammunition.
- He, like Agent 47, is a master of disguise, despite being an albino.
- A skilled marksman, Parchezzi's weapon of choice is a Colt 1911A1 custom pistol. He is the only enemy in the game besides Alexander Leland Cayne who uses it.
- Although it is a name, Mark is also a term when describing a series of models such as the term 'version'. Therefore, being the third model he is deemed 'Mark III'.
- If the player gets near the window of the Oval Office where he's in, he will recognize 47 and flee the room.
- It is possible to kill Parchezzi without meeting him by using an RU-AP mine.
- It is also possible to kill Parchezzi right after the Oval Office cutscene by equipping an automatic weapon while in first person mode.
- The body of the janitor that Parchezzi killed to obtain a disguise can be found in the bathroom near the Oval Office. This is strange since Parchezzi was first seen in the opening cutscene just before entering the building wearing the disguise. If the body is found by the NPCs the rating will not be lowered, the guards however, may be alerted.
- The name "Parchezzi" is also a slang word meaning "ripped off" or "copied", which is a reference to him trying to imitate 47. Or a reference to him being a clone.
- He was mentioned during the Flatline mission, as a nurse talks with Greg Truman about a "strange albino doctor" whom she has never seen before. While his presence is mentioned by the nurse, he does not appear during the mission.
- Parchezzi is the most durable enemy in Blood Money, able to withstand 10-12 bullets to the torso from the Silverballers before dying. Almost all other characters in the game die after only 1 or 2 torso shots, with the only exceptions being Anthony Martinez, Maynard John, and to a lesser extent Alexander Leland Cayne. However, headshots kill Parchezzi instantly.
- In one of the concept renders for Hitman: Blood Money when 47 and Parchezzi are aiming pistols at each other, instead of Parchezzi having a Custom 1911, he is shown with a Desert Eagle. This is also present in the trailers preceding the game release.
- In newspaper, he is known as 'unknown person', thus his identity is still yet to be revealed to the public.
- Despite being heavily featured in advertisements with his polarized suit, he is never seen in actual gameplay wearing it. The only exception is a small cutscene after the first mission.
- As he is technically only 1-2 years old at the time of his assassination he is one of the youngest targets in the entire series.
