Main characters

Harman Smith

Despite his great age, he is as physically fit as a young man. He regularly played Kun Lan in life at chess and would often defeat him, while at the same time attempting to stop him from using his terrorist organization, the Heaven Smile, to destroy the world. He uses an armor-piercing rifle in battle and holds the power of the "God Killer."

Kun Lan

In his past life, he was simultaneously the best friend and the arch-rival of Harman Smith. Kun Lan obtained the God Hand through unknown means and used it to create the anti-American terrorist organization Heaven Smile, which Harman devoted his life to stopping. Kun Lan was born in Lhasa, Tibet's capital as an adult, with some worshiping him as a reincarnation of the demon Mara Papimer. He believes himself to be as powerful as a god, the reason behind naming his creations "Heaven Smile."

Smith Syndicate

Garcian Smith

  • Counter-Attack: None.
  • Down Attack: Smashes enemy with briefcase.

In his past life, he was Emir Parkreiner. As the leader of the Killer7, Garcian alone has the ability to converse with Harman's alter egos. In Killer7, Christopher Mills would regularly give him missions that required the expertise of the Killer7. Hand in Killer7 tells us that he was killed and absorbed by Harman in the past, which may indicate towards Emir being taken in by Harman after the incident at the Union Hotel. Greg Eagles is the voice actor for Peter Stillman in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and is also the voice actor for the DARPA Chief Donald Anderson and the Ninja under the name George Byrd. ...

Garcian has the power to resurrect Harman's other selves, an ability which only relies on the player's ability to tap buttons on their game controller. When a member of the Killer7 is killed in action, they leave behind their own head in a bag, which Garcian must then retrieve starting from the last save point. Look up Resurrection in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ... This article or section does not cite any references or sources. ...


Garcian carries a briefcase, which is revealed at the end to hold the various weapons of the Smith Syndicate. His weapon of choice is a P230 with silencer, and in "Smile" he receives his old Golden Gun once again.


Dan Smith

  • Counter-Attack: Grabs enemy by throat and fires into its chest.
  • Down Attack: Stamps on enemies' head.

The second persona of the Killer7 assassins, Dan Smith is the most aggressive of the seven and is nicknamed the Hellion because of his hot-tempered personality. He wears a suit and tie, and is armed with a Colt Python .357 revolver (which is later replaced by the more powerful, double-barreled Demon Gun during the first half of "Encounter"). His special technique is the "Collateral Shot", which is the only attack capable of destroying Duplicator Smiles. It is also referred to as the "Demon Shot" and "Demon Shell". Michael Gough is an American voice actor. ... Colt Python with 6 inch barrel and Royal Blue finish The Colt Python is a . ...


In his past life, he was born in Detroit, Michigan and is of Irish descent. At the age of 33, Dan was one of the members of the Union7 political party that was killed in the Union Hotel by the Bloody Heartland (Emir Parkreiner). He was staying in room #601 when he was murdered. Nickname: Motto: Speramus Meliora; Resurget Cineribus (Latin for, We Hope For Better Things; It Shall Rise From the Ashes) Location in Wayne County, Michigan Coordinates: , Country United States State Michigan County Wayne County Founded 1701 Incorporation 1806 Government  - Type Strong Mayor-Council  - Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick (D) Area  - City  143. ...


Before reincarnating as one of Harman Smith's personae, Dan served the Seattle self-defense force under Curtis Blackburn's tutelage, but was killed by him without remorse after being wrongly accused of stealing from Blackburn's organ trafficking business (Pedro Montana was the true culprit). Dan holds a strong grudge against Blackburn because of this. According to the instruction manual, he also hates Harman Smith, and according to A Hand in Killer 7 Dan has tried to kill him in the past.

In biology, an organ (Latin: organum, instrument, tool) is a group of tissues that perform a specific function or group of functions. ... Trafficking is a term to describe a transnational illegal activity, involving transporting, usually smuggling drugs, transporting small arms or people. ...


Dan’s signature weapon, the Demon Gun, has two barrels and a twelve shot cylinder. From the animated footage in Alter Ego it is safe to assume that each barrel fires six out of the twelve bullets in the cylinder. The gun also dramatically decreases Dan’s reload time. It is interesting to note that the Demon Gun is not shown in Garcian’s briefcase at the end of the episode Smile.


MASK de Smith

  • Counter-Attack: Suplexes enemy.
  • Down Attack: Knee drop onto enemy.

The third persona of the Smith Syndicate, MASK de Smith, nicknamed The Mask, is the most destructive member of the Killer7, as well as the most kind-hearted, who loves animals and children. As one can tell by his appearance, he is a former professional wrestler who has developed his own fighting style based on lucha libre and Lancashire wrestling. He wields two modified M79 grenade launchers, capable of firing Electric and Gravity-based grenades in addition to regular rounds (which are powerful enough to destroy cracked walls). He can also use his wrestling moves to clear paths. During the game, he can obtain new masks that change his appearances and make his attacks even more powerful, as well as decreasing (and later removing) his initially substantial reload time. Miguel Naranjo Caballero is an actor who was born in Zamora, Michoacán, Mexico. ... Capital Santa Fe Largest city Albuquerque Area  Ranked 5th  - Total 121,665 sq mi (315,194 km²)  - Width 342 miles (550 km)  - Length 370 miles (595 km)  - % water 0. ...

In his past life, he was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico. In addition to being a professional wrestler, he was also a member of the Union7 political party. At the age of 38, while staying in the Union Hotel, Emir Parkreiner killed him while taking a shower in room #306. He was scheduled to appear in New York for a major wrestling event prior to his death. Even after death, he is still recognized by wrestling fans, including Jean DePaul. During Sunset, he somehow manages to stop a bullet by headbutting it. Nickname: Location in the state of New Mexico Coordinates: , Country United States State New Mexico County Bernalillo Founded 1706 Government  - Mayor Martin Chavez Area  - City  181. ...


KAEDE Smith

  • Counter-Attack: Kicks enemy down.
  • Down Attack: Kicks enemy.

KAEDE Smith (楓・墨州 Kaede Sumisu?) is the fourth persona and the only female member of the Smith Syndicate. She is always seen wearing a short dress stained with blood and is rarely seen wearing any shoes. In fact, she is only seen wearing any (a pair of incredibly high high heels) in the manual's artwork where she is presumably "off-duty", and she never wears any in the game. Because of this, she has been given the nickname of Barefoot. Her special ability is the "Blood Shower", in which she summons Mizaru (Iwazaru's ex-wife) to eliminate invisible barriers by cutting her wrist and creating a rain of her own blood. She can also use this ability to absorb blood as well. Tara Strong (born Tara Lyn Charendoff, February 12, 1973) is a voice actress originally from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. ... Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres depicts the Comtesse dHaussonville, wearing a dress. ... High-heeled shoes are shoes where the heel of the wearers foot is raised to be significantly higher than their toes. ...


During combat, she wields an AMT Hardballer with a zooming scope, similar to how a sniper rifle works. However, this weapon takes a bit of time to reload compared to other weapons, partly because of KAEDE's clumsiness with clips (she is seen fumbling with them while reloading). KAEDE can also use kicks against Smiles during close encounters. It is stated that in Hand in Killer 7, she's a talented martial artist. It's also worth noting that while KAEDE uses a scope-equipped pistol in-game, one of the messages from Johnny Gagnon's carrier pigeons early in game states that KAEDE uses a sniper rifle, which is obviously something that Capcom forgot to change before launch. The AMT Hardballer is a clone of the . ... The M40, United States Marine Corps standard-issue sniper rifle. ...


In her previous life, she was born in Portland, Oregon and was of Japanese-American descent. She was a member of the Union7 political party and had a brother whom belonged to the Liberal Party. Hand in Killer7 reveals she was killed at the hands of her own brother in her first life, who was under orders from Matsuken. In her second life, she was killed while fleeing from Emir Parkreiner in the Union Hotel. While hiding in a wardrobe in Room #404, Emir shot her several times in the abdomen. This is how she got the bloodstains on her dress. On the first level, Travis mentions that bloodstains are the mark of a traitor when referring to a Heaven Smile, but this also extends to KAEDE, as she ran and hid from Emir instead of trying to warn her teammates.

Con Smith

  • Counter-Attack: Skids onto back and fires upward at enemy.
  • Down Attack: Jumps and spins in the air, guns blazing at enemy.

A bandanna wearing street punk, Con Smith was born blind but acts like a seemingly normal teenage boy with a trigger-happy but childish personality. Nothing is known of his first life, but in his second life, he tragically died at the hands of Emir Parkreiner due to his disability. He was of Chinese descent. Jun Hee Lee voiced Con Smith in the videogame Killer7 for PS2 and Gamecube in 2005. ...


As a part of the Killer7, Con is perfectly able to grasp his surroundings due to superb hearing, and his special ability allows him to run incredibly fast, covering large distances in seconds. Unfortunately he can't take as much damage as the other personas. He can also fit in small gaps that others can not.


Hand in Killer7 reveals he is 14 years old and that he has a strong attachment to Coyote Smith, but a hatred of Dan. He whistles when he is in a good mood and is a big fan of the 'Handsome Men', which may explain why he strikes a pose every time he uses his special ability.


His weapons are a pair of automatic pistols, possibly Glock 18s. Athletic, he seems to use his feet and knees to help reload, much like in a game of Hackysack. Next to Dan, he is one of the more popular characters among fans. The GLOCK 18 is a handgun manufactured by GLOCK. It is much like a GLOCK 17 with a fire selector switch on its slide that enables it to fire in semi-automatic or fully automatic modes. ...


Coyote Smith

  • Counter-Attack: Kicks enemy down and fires.
  • Down Attack: Steps backwards, aims revolver downwards and fires.

Next to nothing is known about his past lives other than he was born and raised in South America (or so it is stated in Johnny Gagnon's letters, despite being stated to be Puerto Rican in Hand in Killer7), and once killed by Dan Smith, and in his second one he is killed when Emir Parkreiner flanks his hiding spot and shoots him from a window. As a member of the Killer7, he is aggressive and irreverent, regularly using the phrase "You're fucked", after hitting a Smile's weak point. He also possesses the ability to pick any padlock and to jump high upwards to reach otherwise inaccessible areas. His weapon is a modified Enfield revolver capable of firing a charged shot (though not as powerful as Dan's Collateral Shot, and described by Iwazaru as custom shots banned by international treaties.) He holds the weapon upside-down, in his own "gangster style". Benito Martinez as David Acevada in The Shield Benito Martinez is an actor from Guatemala, best known as police captain (later city councilman) David Aceveda in FX Networks acclaimed crime drama The Shield. ... Enfield No. ...


Iwazaru refers to him as a petty thief, and often expresses doubts about whether Coyote truly deserves to be a member of the Killer 7


Kevin Smith

  • Counter-Attack: Sticks knife into enemy's neck, before pulling back.
  • Down Attack: Strikes enemy with knife downwards.

He was an albino bellhop (or disguised as one) at the Union Hotel, and was unceremoniously killed by Emir Parkreiner. Then he was reborn as a part of the Killer7. He has the ability to turn invisible, which lets him pass through Heaven Smiles and security systems alike. Kevin has the ability to turn invisible because he can easily disappear into crowds. The book Hand in Killer7 mentions he was forced to kill "the man he loved" during a battle in Miami, though it is not mentioned in-game. It is also mentioned that he wears shades all the time because his eyes mysteriously glow/shine. Curiously, when he goes into stealth mode he removes his glasses and vanishes following a bright flash. His weapons of choice are throwing knives, plus a long-bladed knife for close combat. Despite his size and hulking posture, he is very quick and acrobatic, capable of high-speed somersaults and flips. In addition to this, after joining the Killer 7, he no longer talks in any situation. This may be because, according to his character biography on the official Killer7 website, it is rumored that his voice now has the capability of summoning Gods. Killer7 is a video game jointly developed and published by Grasshopper Manufacture and Capcom for the Nintendo GameCube and the Sony PlayStation 2. ... This is a list of fictional characters appearing in the video game Killer7. ... A Heaven Smile is the standard type of enemy that the player faces in the Killer7 videogame metaverse. ...


Recurring supporting characters

This is a list of recurring characters that appear in several episodes of the game.


Christopher Mills

He was an agent for the United States government who would give information and missions for the Killer7 to Garcian. He contacted Garcian by leaving a recording on his answering machine, claiming to be a member of the Republic Party and requesting his vote in a local election. He was killed by Linda Vermillion, who apparently supplants him in that station. Bart Flynn (born February 28, 1966 in Cleveland, Ohio) is an American voice actor. ... This is a list of fictional characters appearing in the video game and book Killer7. ...


Samantha Sitbon

Details of her first life are currently unknown. She was Samantha Sitbon in her second life, and served Harman Smith loyally - at least when wearing her maid outfit. When dressed as a maid, she is all-business, but in street clothes, she becomes rough and abusive towards Harman, physically striking or sexually molesting the nearly catatonic old man. Garcian Smith often walks in on her during these times, but says nothing. She is killed during the game’s events and becomes Samantha Smith, although she is originally credited as "Samantha Sitbon." This change likely notes her becoming one of Harman's personalities and thus joining the Smith Syndicate. Heidi Anderson is an American voice actor from Honolulu, Hawaii. ... Harman Smith is the main character in the metaverse of Killer7. ...


Kenjiro Matsuoka

Kenjiro Matsuoka is often referred to in the game as 'Matsuken,' a nickname formed from the Japanese traditional method of writing one's surname in front of one's given name; Matsuken is an abbreviation of Matsuoka Kenjiro. Steven Jay Blum (born April 28, 1965) is an American voice actor known primarily for his work in anime dubs and video games. ... A family name, or surname, is that part of a persons name that indicates to what family he or she belongs. ... Look up Appendix:Most popular given names by country in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...


He was born in Hiroshima and initially appears as one of the younger members of the U.N. Party, but was frustrated by their unwillingness to take action. He was goaded into murdering his superiors, Hiroyasu Kurahashi and Shinya Akiba, and then touched by the "God Hand" before he could commit suicide. The Japanese city of Hiroshima ) is the capital of Hiroshima Prefecture, and the largest city in the Chūgoku region of western Honshū, the largest of Japans islands. ... Rather than surrender to US soldiers, the Mayor (Bürgermeister) of Leipzig Germany, committed suicide along with his wife and daughter on April 20, 1945. ...


Subsequently, he takes command of the U.N. Party and retrieves the Yakumo. He kills Hiro Kasai, who betrayed information about the U.N. Party to the Killer7. He later appears at the gymnasium of Coburn Elementary School shortly after Garcian Smith discovers the corpse of Greg Nightmare. He has knowledge of the Education Ministry of the United States and tells Garcian about it before disappearing. This is a list of fictional characters appearing in the video game and book Killer7. ... killer7 is a video game jointly developed and published by Grasshopper Manufacture and Capcom for the GameCube and PlayStation 2. ... This is a list of fictional characters appearing in the video game and book Killer7. ... This is a list of fictional characters appearing in the video game and book Killer7. ...


When Matsuken confronts Garcian in the gymnasium, Matsuken aims an automatic pistol at Garcian’s head. It is worth noticing that this weapon is gold like the gun used by Emir Parkreiner. However this gun is only present in the gymnasium scene and is never elaborated on in the game.


The next time Matsuken is seen is on Battleship Isle just before the end of the final mission "Lion." He tells the awakened Emir Parkreiner that if he is left alive, Japan will destroy the United States, and the player is offered a choice of whether or not to kill him, which affects the ending. If he lives, as promised Japan will destroy the United States in 2014; if he is killed, the reverse will happen, with the U.S. destroying Japan in an attack on the same year. This is a list of fictional characters appearing in the video game Killer7. ...


Remnant Psyches

The Remnant Psyches are spirits that the Smiths encounter during the course of the story to offer them advice. They are the spirits of those that Harman and the other Smiths killed, but could not absorb to become additional personas. In later episodes, the ghosts of defeated bosses will appear as well.


Travis Bell

Travis was the first person that Smith ever killed, and is often seen wearing muscle shirts sporting bizarre slogans on them. Usually he will give some sort of hint as to what the player needs to do to move on, or mention important plot points, often relating to the political side of the story. Sometimes these hints are extremely vague.


Iwazaru

Wenzel Diel Boris Iwazaruskopf VII, or Iwazaru for short, appears to give direct hints to the player; in the first episode, he will give a tutorial on basic controls, and in the save room he will provide as a directory for info on all the information you've gathered so far on anyone and anything related to the game. He appears as a man dressed entirely in red and black bondage gear and suspended above the ground by a red bungee cord. He always has his right index finger held before his mouth when he talks, which refers to the fact that "Iwazaru" is Japanese for "speak no evil."


He always starts a conversation saying something along the lines of "Master, We're in a tight spot..." and every conversation ends with "In the name of Harman..." with the exception of the one had with the player near the beginning of Angel. Iwazru finds out that you're going to try to kill Kun Lan and calls you a fool. Thus, he ends the sentence with "in the name of that fool" instead.


At the end of the game, he is revealed to be both a Heaven Smile and an incarnation of Kun Lan.


On a miscellaneous note, he is apparently deeply disturbed by afros as mentioned at the start of the Cloudman episode, and decides to delegate his normal role to "Cult Member".


Kikazaru

Iwazaru's retainer. He appears whenever Soul Shells are close by. His name is Japanese for "hear no evil."


Mizaru

Iwazaru's ex-wife. She aids KAEDE Smith in which she uses KAEDE's blood to break barriers and absorb blood. She always has one hand covering her eyes, as her name is Japanese for "see no evil."


Yoon-Hyun

Yoon-Hyun is always seen holding a mask in his right hand, and will give you some info regarding what you need to do next. He will tell you that if you want to hear more, to shoot his mask. Upon doing so, you lose some Blood, and Yoon-Hyun changes in appearance slightly, having the mask on his face and using both hands to give the finger, calling the player a loser or a variant of that. In his previous life, Yoon-Hyun was the informant for the Harman Assassins and he was also the owner of Hotel Union. This article is about the gesture. ...


Susie Sumner

Susie Sumner appears as a severed head, which fans believe symbolizes her tendency to "lose her head." She appears six times throughout the game, each time giving a ring possessing magical power. When she does this she says she is returning it, implying it belonged to them before. At every appearance she reveals part of her past, through disjointed speech and internet emoticons. While most of her past is a mystery, we do know that she tried to commit suicide by jumping off of a building, and taking her mother with her, resulting in her mother's death and six months spent in the hospital. She also shot a boyfriend with her father's hunting rifle resulting in being committed to a mental asylum. It is also heavily implied that she kidnapped several men, cutting off their genitals. Her voice is one of the few that can be deciphered easier, too - often giving a rearranged message to the dialogue.


Kess BloodySunday

Constantly having a horrified expression on his face, Kess is the small boy that the Killer7 meet before fighting a new type of Heaven Smile past the Coliseum. He often gives hints about how to defeat the new Heaven Smiles. His eyes are white, and he indicates that he is blind (at least in death).


Before his death Kess was an apparent serial killer (brought upon by severe child neglect) who had expertise with bomb making. In Kess' own words, his killing was by the hand of the "three eyed monster", Emir Parkreiner. His death occurred on a Sunday, hence his unusual surname.


Gate-Keeper

The Gate-Keeper is seen in every episode except Cloudman and Alter Ego, usually shortly before the boss, appearing at the entrance of a club with loud music (which, regardless of the current episode's environment, is always the same). During the episode you have to obtain "Soul Shells", which you give to the Gate-Keeper who lets you through. After defeating a new Heaven's Smile, you pass through his area again and progress further into the level.


Mad Doctor

The Mad Doctor appears on the Blood Room channel on the television in Harman's room. He uses a blood machine to convert thick blood (collected by the Killer7) into serum, which can be used for upgrading the personalities. When the player exceeds the amount of serum for that stage, the blood machine will shut down, making the doctor put up a "Closed" sign telling the player that no more thick blood can be converted. He is similar in appearance to Harman Smith. If you pay close enough attention, you may see him hit the machine as it shuts down and hear him sigh, insinuating that he enjoys converting blood and dislikes shutting down for the remainder of the episode.


Characters in "ANGEL"

Red Gunners

The Red Gunners are described by Hand in Killer7 as being a small group of organized criminals composed of two men and two women. They are all killed in some manner in the Angel episode by either Heaven Smiles or in the case of one of the male members, actually becoming a Heaven Smile.


Angel

Angel is the first evolved Heaven Smile boss enemy of the game. The angel greets Harman Smith and speaks of the thirteen "children", blaming Harman for the deaths of nine of them while the other four "did not die in vain." The player as Harman destroys the angel’s four wings. She falls to the ground but returns to life with four faces where her wings had been (and bloody holes where her eyes were). Harman Smith is the main character in the metaverse of Killer7. ...


As the angel returns to life, Kun Lan’s voice is heard. "You think you killed me? Better think again!"


Characters in "SUNSET"

Toru Fukushima

A former member of the Liberal Party and owner of Restaurant Fukushima, Toru Fukushima is the leader of the United Nations Party of Japan; since its establishment, it has become Japan's leading political group. Jim Ward is one of the co-creators of the modern body piercing movement. ...


Near the end of the Killer7's mission inside Restaurant Fukushima, Fukushima reveals to Harman that he, along with the other Liberal members encompassing the Union7, were responsible for the creation of the Yakumo Party Cabinet Policy; documents detailing how to create the ideal nation and perfect society with regard to nationalism and diplomacy. However, due to the fractured nature of the Liberal Party at the time, the Union7 were disbanded and the Yakumo left in the hands of the Party's chief secretary before Fukushima had it stolen. Fukushima's disillusionment with Japan's state of politics, with him believing that politicians were nothing more than actors, is ultimately what caused him to escape to the United States and become a political 'architect' for the U.N. Party.


With his political power of being the leader of the U.N. Party, Fukushima decided to break the Asian Security Treaty in the hope of establishing Japan as an entirely independent state, effectively destroying the relationship between his political party and Japan with the U.S. Government. The motivation was that he realized that Japan's usefulness as an ally to the United States had completely diminished, and that a betrayal by the U.S. Government would be inevitable. However, once the 200+ pulsars from East Asia had launched and were set to target Japan, Fukushima planned to barter the Yakumo with the U.S. Government in exchange for their intervention by launching self-defense missiles.


The International Ethics Committee eventually come to learn about Fukushima's many illicit dealing, and send Jean DePaul to act as a spy. Fukushima is eventually killed by Julia Kisugi, an undercover assassin belonging to the Liberal Party that he once served, as a last attempt to undermine the U.N. Party and gain control of Japan.


Along with being a meaningful politician, Fukushima also wanted to be a tea master.


Julia Kisugi

A 22 year old assassin hired by the desperate Japanese Liberal Party to kill Toru Fukushima and to retrieve the Yakumo. She goes undercover and works as Toru Fukushima's secretary.


She succeeds in killing Toru Fukushima, but fails to obtain the Yakumo as Jean DePaul had already recovered it. She is forced into a corner and does battle with the Killer7. She loses the duel and commits suicide by breaking off her necklace and biting into it, which activates a bomb that explodes and instantly kills her.


Her true desire was to escape the life of an assassin and to live a normal life. She later appears as a remnant psyche (ghost) during Chapter Cloudman where she thanks the Killer7 because with the result of her death, she has finally found some happiness.


Jean DePaul

A 23 year old professional assassin/spy working for the International Ethics Committee in attempt to stop the U.S./Japanese meeting which ended in failure anyway because the U.S. already made up their mind long before the meeting ever began. James Horan (b. ...


Jean DePaul is sent to Restaurant Fukushima and takes on the disguise of an apprentice chef. He succeeds in fooling the Killer7 and manages to keep his identity a secret.


Hiro Kasai tips off Garcian about Jean DePaul and how he is an enemy to the Liberal Party and a threat to the Killer7's mission. At Restaurant Fukushima, Jean's goal was to find Julia and kill her. Jean may not have killed Julia, but his mission succeeds anyway due to the Killer7 interfering and killing Julia.


Jean kills himself after being defeated by MASK DE Smith in the basement of the Kaku Building. He later appears as a remnant psyche (ghost). Despite his death and failed mission, the Internal Ethics Committee still achieved the results they wanted.


Jean secretly admires MASK DE Smith, though he complains his style of wrestling is for little kids.


Hiroyasu Kurahashi & Shinya Akiba

Kurahashi & Akiba are the two elderly executive members of the Japanese U.N. Party who despise the United States and wish to save Japan. Kurahashi and Akiba view younger U.N. Party member Kenjiro Matsuoka as a foolish and disgraceful politician. When Kenjiro Matsuoka sums up enough courage, he takes the gun and shoots both of the old men. However, they aren't truly dead as they are chosen by Kun Lan and are instantly reborn as evolved Heaven Smile. Their new task: Defeat the Killer7. With Toru Fukushima dead, The U.N. Party is in a chaotic mess, but Kun Lan chooses Kenjiro Matusoka to become the new U.N. leader.


The Killer7 go to the Kaku building where Kurahashi and Akiba put up a rather amusing battle, but they are ultimately defeated. They later appear as remnant psyche ghosts with whom the Killer7 can communicate later on in the game.


Hiro Kasai

A 52-year old Japanese informant for the Liberal Party. Hiro Kasai works in cooperation with the United States through connections with Christopher Mills. Hiro reveals information to Garcian Smith regarding the peace-keeping organization known as The International Ethics Committee, that they hired professional assassin/spy Jean DePaul, who has become an enemy to the Japanese Liberal Party. The International Ethics Committee intended for the U.S. to attack Japan. Hiro Kasai wanted the U.S./Japanese Talks to succeed for the sake of the Asian Security Protocol. Downes as the telepath Byron in Babylon 5 Born in London, England, Robin Atkin Downes is an English actor who is best known for his work in voice acting. ...


Later on, Kenjiro Matsuoka captures Hiro Kasai and makes him dress up in bondage gear in an act of embarrassment and shame for being a fellow Japanese citizen and a political nuisance towards the Japanese U.N. Party's plans. Ultimately, Matsuken makes Hiro jump off the top of a building to make it look like he committed suicide. Interstingly, the bondage gear Kenjiro forces him to wear is similar to Iwazaru's.


Kuramoto, Ohta, Jeffers & Dudley

The four playing mah-jongg in the basement of the Kaku building are there for a meeting between U.S. and Japan to negotiate the extension of the Asian Security Treaty, according to Hand in Killer7.


The Liberal Party desired an extension of the Asian Security Treaty, and therefore kept its relationship with the U.S. Government in good condition. Oppositely, Toru Fukushima of the United Nations Party completely severed his relationship with the U.S. Government; he ended the security treaty in the interest of establishing Japan as a truly independent state. When the Liberal Party learned about Fukushima's annulment of the Asian Security Treaty, it sent Julia Kisugi to assassinate him; replacing Fukushima in the negotiations with their own Kuramoto and Ohta to maintain Japan-U.S. relations.


Negotiations between the Liberal Party and the U.S. Government had concluded well before the meeting in the Kaku Building, so the meeting was intended to be a mere formality. Unexpectedly, the U.S. Government, represented by Jeffers and Dudley, broke off negotiations; as a result, both sides end up killing each other, shooting each other from across the mah-jongg in a dramatic fashion.

For the past 15 years, Curtis was working sanctioned government jobs thanks to the U.S. Opposition Party. Alastair Duncan (born ?) is a British-Australian actor and voice actor best known for providing the voice-over on the first three series of the television show Australias Most Wanted. ...


Years ago, Pedro Montana set up Dan Smith to look like Dan had betrayed Curtis Blackburn. Pedro then sent Curtis to kill Dan.


Curtis and Pedro become involved in an organ trafficking operation where Curtis would round up only young girls while Pedro would take the boys. Pedro ends up betraying Curtis by taking more money and attempts to live a normal life with his family. Curtis Blackburn leaves Ayame to continue on with the organ trafficking operation while Curtis deals with a personal matter. Curtis eventually finds Pedro and ruthlessly kills his family, hands Pedro his daughter's decapitated head and then shoots Pedro several times in the back of the head. Curtis and Pedro are linked to the U.S. Opposition Party which controls the U.S. Immigration Bureau.


The Killer7 are eventually given a mission by the U.S. government to put a stop of the children kidnappings. They go to IZSK Land Amusement Park which turns out to be a front for Curtis to use Ayame to capture young girls. After tracking her bus, they end up at the Blackburn residence. Here, the Killer7 end up finding Curtis Blackburn's secret underground lab where he harvests organs, and appears to stuff the bodies of his victims as a "hobby".

He framed Dan by having him launder the dirty money to make Dan look like the traitor. Pedro then sent Curtis to kill Dan.


Pedro betrays Curtis Blackburn involving their black market organ trafficking operation, thinking he could escape and lead a normal life with his family. He was previously the middleman who controlled the organ trade routes during the partnership.


Pedro was also responsible for the assault on the U.S. Immigration office by monopolizing the market. The original deal was that Pedro would get the boys while Curtis would get the girls. He broke the deal when he proceeded to take female orphans as well. His reason for doing this was because of the short supply of fresh organs and he knew that the Heaven Smile caused the birthrate to drop more rapidly. Increases in contagious diseases started to eat away at the bodies, and control on the market of boys was not enough to make a profit on so Pedro took Curtis's share of the girls.


His selfish actions come back to haunt him when Curtis Blackburn realizes the truth and seeks revenge by killing his family, possibly raping his wife, and then executing Pedro.


Ayame Blackburn

  • Voice: Masayo Hosono

Ayame has a passion for anime cosplay which includes wearing a schoolgirl uniform and an animegao mask resembling the facial features of a female anime heroine. In addition, she enjoys making radically cliché introduction speeches in Japanese and striking action poses like that of Sailor Moon among other magical girl-based characters.
