Back in May, Square Enix released a cinematic trailer for Hitman: Absolution in which Agent 47 was ambushed by a group of PVC-clad nuns. To clear up your confusion, Square Enix has released a trailer that divulges the backstory of these young ladies.
You may be surprised to learn that these woman are not actual nuns. Instead, they're a group of assassins called the Saints. They were hired and trained by the ICA, Agent 47's former employer. They were very effective at their job, too, until they were asked to kill 47.
As shown in the cinematic trailer, Agent 47 single-handedly wipes out the group. This latest video reveals that one of the Saints survived, though: Lasandra Dixon, the leader. She's laid up in a hospital bed here but no doubt she'll survive and cause some havoc in Absolution.
In case you're wondering: no, they don't explain why they dressed up like nun strippers. Presumably a nun is treated with less suspicion than a normal person but a nun with a skin-tight bodysuit and automatic weapons probably isn't given the benefit of the doubt. It's worth remembering, though, that the the main character in this game is a dude with a barcode on the back of his head - realism is not the top priority, here.
