Do many do it for money or do they kill for personal reasons? The character that I'm toying with considers murder to be a job. It isn't personal for him. So would he be more likely to be a hit man than an assassin? Are hit men usually only employed by the mafia or can anybody hire them? And what exactly is the difference between a hit man and an assassin?
I've tried looking up some of these things but you would never guess how hard it is to find information on assassins and hit men. So if you guys have any thoughts on the matter, please share.
