The men whose DNA contributed to 47's creation are often referred to within the series as the "Five Fathers", consisting of his creator Dr. Otto Wolfgang Ort-Meyer, a German scientist; Lee Hong, a Chinese triad boss operating in Hong Kong; Pablo Ochoa, a Colombian drug lord; Franz Fuchs, an Austrian terrorist faction leader; and Arkadij Jegorov (also known by his second name Boris Ivanovich Deruzka), a Russian-Kazakh gunrunner. Ort-Meyer was discredited in his scientific work in Germany and moved to Romania because his radical theories were deemed insane by his peers. Ort-Meyer believed that genetic recombination and human cloning could be used to produce a perfected version of the human species, superior in strength and mind and unburdened by conscience. His ultimate goal, unbeknown to his associates, was to create an army of flawless and unquestioningly obedient supermen. When Ort-Meyer's associates became suspicious of his motives, he employed 47 to systematically eliminate each of them. When 47 discovered Ort-Meyer's plans, he killed Ort-Meyer.
