Edward Wade was a mercenary of the Colombian drug cartels and a long-time friend of Dominic Osmond, owner of the Vixen Club, and Blake Dexter.


Early Life

He was a member of the Colombian cartels for 10 years before befriending Dom Osmond and Blake Dexter without even getting injured, thus, becoming a henchman for Dexter himself.

Blake Dexter's Contract

Blake Dexter learnt of Victoria, and he assigned Wade for $35,000 and his son Lenny to kidnap her for a ransom from the Agency. After arriving at Chicago, he raided the Rosewood Orphanage in search for Victoria, slaughtering over a dozen nuns and security personnel in the process. Fortunately, most of the children were on a field trip; it is unlikely that they would have fared any better. He does not think much of Blake Dexter's son Lenny, and gives Dexter's assistant Layla the "creeps". Wade speaks in a southwestern drawl and enjoys eating chicken wings. He drives a 1950 Mercury coupe, which 47 takes after dealing with him.

He captures Victoria and waits at the basement of the orphanage, awaiting 47's arrival. Depending on the player's actions, 47 kills Wade either by sneaking around Wade's men and using hot steam near a furnace to stun him and then kills him or walks into an attempted ambush and shoots and kills Wade and a number of goons in a point shooting.
