In for a penny, in for a pound.
Ms. Perkins to Marcus

Ms. Perkins is an assassin who is paid by Viggo Tarasov to attempt to kill the legendary hitman John Wick.


Ms. Perkins is one of the assassins employed by Viggo Tarasov. When she arrives at the Continental, she meets Wick at the reception and claims that is is good to see him again. She later informs Tarasov's assistant Avi that Wick is at the Continental and that she is willing to take him out despite the rules of the Continental which state that no "business" may be done inside of the hotel. To reward her, Viggo doubles the bounty.

While John recovers from his wounds, Perkins sneaks into his room to finish him off. Unbeknownst to her, John's old colleague Marcus watches over him with a sniper rifle. Marcus shoots near Johns head to wake him up. John rises just in time to see Perkins entering his room with a silenced pistol. A fight breaks out which John eventual wins. After he has defeated Perkins, he asks her about Viggo.

Perkins reluctantly tells him about the place where Viggo hides his money. John leaves her handcuffed with Harry, another guest at the continental, whom he tells to watch over her. When Perkins wakes up, Harry tells her that Winston is not happy about her breaking the rules of the hotel by trying to kill John in his suite. While he talks, Perkins dislocates her thumb to slip out of her cuffs. She knocks down Harry, forces a pillow onto his head and shoots him.

After John kills Iosef, Viggos men capture Marcus. They torture him for failing to kill John while Ms. Perkins watches. When Marcus manages to wrestle himself free and kill two of Viggos henchmen, Ms. Perkins shoots him. Marcus is then finished off by Viggo himself.

While waiting at Marcus corpse to ambush John, she gets called by Winston, the owner of the Continental Hotel. When she meets with him he tells her that her membership has been revoked. Four of his henchmen then shoot her for breaking the rules of the Continental. Winston then hands a gold coin to the cleaner Charlie to get rid of the body. She is then wrapped up via plastic wrap and taken away by Charley and his "Waste Disposal" men to be processed and disintegrated, thus leaving no trace.


  • Ms. Perkins is a highly skilled operative and a expert in assassination and firearms.
