Providence is an extremely powerful, and supposedly ancient, secretive cabal that controls all of the world's affairs, having members all over the globe.
Starting as a collaboration between the former cold war spy Janus, and three influential families, Providence was formed around the 1970's or 1980's. They even took control of entire countries, notably during a coup in Paraguay in 1985, and a failed coup in Morocco in 2019.
According to the Constant, Arthur Edwards, Providence began centuries ago with three wealthy dynasties called the Ingrams, the Carlisles and the Stuyvesants. These dynasties began secretly pooling their money and resources for many generations, which led to the birth of a cabal. With the recruitment of Janus, a legendary KGB agent, Providence was born.
In the 1980's, Janus, now the advisor to the three families, secretly recruited the renowned Otto Wolfgang Ort-Meyer, to create obedient clones, that were able to kill everyone without remorse.
The Shadow Client has waged a war against them, starting with the death of Eugene Cobb, his former employer. Following that, Grey even went as far as to create his own private militia and manipulate the ICA, specifically his "old friend" Agent 47, into killing off Providence's members discretely. Providence was also secretly funding Ether Corporation to create the Ether Virus, a DNA tracking biological agent which kills people discretely. While being indirectly contracted by the Shadow Client, 47 managed to infiltrate and destroy Providence's schemes across Paris, Sapienza, Marrakesh and Bangkok.
Erich Soders, a high ranking ICA official who was actually an informant of Providence, manipulated the ICA into sending 47 to eliminate the top lieutenants of the Shadow Client's militia at an Apricot farm in Colorado. The Shadow Client escapes, but the evidence he leaves behind points the ICA towards Providence's members across the globe as well as the fact that Erich Soders is a Providence mole.
Angered by Erich Soders' betrayal, the ICA contracts 47 to infiltrate the GAMA hospital in Hokkaido, where Erich Soders will be utilizing regenerative stem cell treatments for a heart transplant. Once there, under the ICA's orders, 47 eliminates Erich Soders and his Providence accomplice, Yuki Yamazaki,
