Agent 47 is a genetically-engineered assassin and protagonist of the series, created from the recombinant DNA of five of the world's most dangerous criminals. His name comes from the last two digits of a bar code on the back of his head – (640509-040147). He is a tall, bald, blue-eyed, no-nonsense individual and usually wears a suit with black leather gloves and a red tie. Engineered from conception to be the perfect killer, 47's strength, speed, and intellect are above the human norm. In the Hitman video game series, 47 is voiced by David Bateson. In the movie adaptation, he is portrayed by Timothy Olyphant.
