Maynard John was born in 1964. At some point during his life, he became a career contract killer and, eventually, was employed by the contract-killing agency known as the Franchise.
During the mission A Dance with the Devil he posed as the bartender at the Hell party at the Shark Club. He and Eve were sent to kill 47 by orders of the Franchise. Maynard was killed after challenging 47 to a duel within one of the club's sound proof storage rooms, which was aptly marked "Torture Chamber."
Maynard John has white hair. He wears a red costume with white gloves. His face is entirely covered by his devil mask. He appears to have yellow eyes, though this may be coloration of the suit itself over the eyes.
According to his ICA profile, Maynard John is a professional and efficient assassin, but "his love of the theatrical makes his job more complicated than it has to be." Upon seeing 47 he will make his presence known and challenge him to a duel in the soundproof storage room. He talks to 47 in a condescending and arrogant manner, continuously referencing 47's inferiority due to the fact he is a clone - though he apparently has some kind of respect for 47, as he decides to challenge him instead of simply killing him. He considers his "mutant adversary" as either "the best" or "the second best" assassin in the world.
- He sometimes watches Vaana Ketlyn's performance.
- He poses as the bartender at the Hell party. Considering he probably has no drink mixing experience, his drinks are terrible and cause one guest to leave the party for the garage, vomit and talk about how lousy the bartender is at doing his job.
- For whatever strange reason, even if 47 has already killed Vaana Ketlyn before talking to him (regardless of the method by which he did so), Ketlyn can still be seen in the background of their conversation performing her pyrotechnics routine.
- On Professional difficulty level, Maynard and Eve will still be displayed on the map despite being represented by civilian markers until the laptop at the top floor (Heaven Party) is inspected, while other civilians are not.
- His weapon of choice in the duel is an MP5, though in one concept art he is equipped with the G11 rifle, which doesn't appear in the game.
- Regardless of 47's disguise, Maynard will instantly recognize him, this applies to Eve as well.
- Strangely, if Maynard sees 47 at the party in his suit, Maynard will run after 47 and ask him to leave. This can be useful if the player wishes to skip Maynard's duel and kill him silently right away.
- Before the duel, he can be killed with only a couple pistol bullets, whereas during the duel it takes about 9 to 10 torso shots from the silverballers or MP7 to kill him. Possibly he wears a ballistic vest for the duel. The easiest way to kill him is to use Eve's stilleto as a projectile while nobody is looking, aim for the head to make sure you get the kill.
- It is possible to kill Maynard silently, however it is nearly impossible and requires perfect timing or the exploitation of glitches
- The mask worn by Maynard can be found in Hitman: Absolution in the mission The King of Chinatown.
- His suit appears to be the same as the Priest outfit in Till Death Do Us Part, just recolored and with the cross upside down.
- In his promotional image he is seen wielding a golden 1911 with pearl grips which he never uses in game.
