killer7 Remnant Psyche FAQ
>>>>PLOT SPOILERS THROUGHOUT GUIDE<<<<
This is my second killer7 guide, a FAQ to the various Remnant Psyches and other
similar personalities that inhabit the crazy world of killer7. Maybe I'm not
looking hard enough, but I've never been able to find a fully comprehensive
guide to each psyche and their small speeches. So this guide aims to solve that.
It's highly unlikely you'll find this useful in beating the game, more likely
you'll just use it for an interesting read on a very odd aspect to the game.

5. What is a Remnant Psyche?
Assuming that you play killer7, you should be familiar with the phrase Remnant
Psyches and those that are contained in killer7. But you may not be exactly
sure what they are.
Remnant Psyches are spirits of the dead people of this world, remaining on the
Earth because of their attachment to the planet. For what reason? Unfinished
business perhaps, or a greater good, or simply, they loved the world they lived
in. Obviously, you could draw certain comparisons with the rumoured ghosts of
However, the Remnant Psyches all share a certain similarity in their deaths.
I'm sure you can guess that they were all murdered. In killer7's case, the
Remnant Psyches we encounter have all been killed by Emir Parkreiner, the
game's protagonist. It is unknown yet probable that other murderers are haunted
by their own Remnant Psyches.
Remnant Psyches appear much like we expect ghosts to - unexpected and
translucent. They are capable of moving long distances within a short space of
time, as if summoned by their murderer. They are not however bound to him and
may full depart to 'their side' of the world whenever they wish - this other
side can obviously be compared to Heaven.
Iwazaru appears as a man in a red gimp suit, suspended by a bungee cord, his
eyes sewn shut and his finger held up to his mouth. He isn't your average
middle-aged man. He generally appears to provide hints to how to progress on
the game and sometimes fill in the story and in one level actively helps you to
achieve your goal. Also worth mentioning are his best friend Kikazaru, who is
addicted to Soul Shells, and ex-wife Mizaru, who aids KAEDE in her blood-
spurting escapades. Iwazaru appears to answer only to his Master Harman and has
his best interests at heart, but some of the things he says can be oddly
Strictly speaking, Iwazaru is not a remnant psyche because he is not dead, as
anyone who has played the Epilogue of the game will know. But because he is one
of your main 'helpers' and can provide some interesting, even amusing
monologues, I think Iwazaru should definitely be included in this guide.
Lastly, I have decided not to include some of his monologues as they are
completely irrelevant to the story and only concentrate on the game. Maybe in a
later update I will include them, but not for now/
Trademark statement - "We're in a tight spot!"
"Master. We're in a tight spot! A real tight spot. Like, I haven't seen you for
ages. It is I, Vincel Dill Boris VII, Iwazaruscof, at your service. Just call
me Iwazaru. Let me show you along the way. To the right, master's room.
Straight ahead, the enemy. Let the bloodbath begin. In the name of Harman..."
"Master. We're in a tight spot! Tight and outta sight! Let me make a suggestion.
You must turn back. This is the enemy's den. Shudder to think! Their bodies are
lined with bombs. They'll bomb rush you, literally! Eliminate them before they
blow! In the name of Harman..."
"Master. We're in a tight spot! This guy is a true freak! But, don't be alarmed.
He is my trusted companion, Kikazaru. Those things that Master seeks...The
bullets. He loves them so. The bullets were left behind by Master, so the
servants search for them tirelessly. Bullets of the soul...Otherwise known as
Soul Shells. In the name of Harman..."
"Master. We're in a tight spot! An ultra tight spot! Life is precious, and the
enemies mean business. They're called Heaven Smile, but look at their eyes!
There's nothing heavenly about them! In the name of Harman..."
"Master. We're in a tight spot! A major tight spot! He's here! Yes, HIM! Master,
you can't..? You're going to go and kill him? What?! Impossible! You're a fool!
An incorrigible fool! Impossible! You're sure to fail! You know nothing of his
strength! Oh, stupid, stupid, Master! That Mills really fooled you...In the name
of the Fool..."
"Master. We're in a tight spot! Like, tighter than tight! Oh, I have offended
my Master with my foul words...But please, you must understand! Just thinking
about HIM drives me absolutely mad! He fixes to sink this country good, and so
he sends his unending parade of minions! With no signs of letting up! Just how
many followers does he command? Beware of old friends...In the name of
"Master. We're in a tight spot! Things are turning in a bad way! An infamous
criminal lies this way! And he's protecting HIM! Wicked bed partners, indeed,
indeed! Ah, yes...Seek out the Soul Shells! With Soul Shells, he's sure to allow
you through the gates! In the name of Harman..."
"Master. We're in a tight spot! Ain't even funny how tight it is! Once you open
this door, there's no turning back, Master! Well, you can come back, but I mean,
that's the gravity of the situation! Don't get me wrong. Like a prelude to
later battles, you see? You must take it very seriously. In the name of
:::SUNSET Part 1:::
Trademark statement - "This is bad!"
"Master. This is bad! This is very, very bad! This is their nest. Sure, it
looks like a sushi joint. But they've got terrible taste! But I have to
admit...The full course here is dynamite. In the name of Harman..."
"Master. This is bad! This just can't be good at all! Are you sure about that
mask? Master, you must have doubts, or I would think? I'm wary of it, that's
for sure. Whenever you get in a tight spot, you break out with your silly
wrestling moves. Why can't you bury the past? And by the way, your special Side
Suplex move should be banned. In the name of Harman..."
"Master. This is bad! Seriously bad! It's an assassin. An assassin has been
sent to this joint. A skilled assassin. But do not worry, a human assassin.
Nothing compared to the smiling freaks. In the name of Harman..."
"Master. This is bad! I feel that it's very, very bad! I just have this feeling
that I've seen that sushi chef before. I recognise that 'I'm-full-of-myself-
and-my-manliness' look! It's all a charade, I tell you! A phony! All looks, and
nothing more! I don't care what you say, Master, that is one man I cannot
accept! And no, this is not because he's more handsome than me! Nothing of the
sort, never! I just cannot forgive the rat! In the name of Harman..."
:::SUNSET Part 2:::
Trademark statement - "This is harsh."
"Master. This is harsh. Real harsh, and I mean it. This is a gambler's paradise.
I don't think this place cares much for active support of crime reduction
policies. The hole in the ceiling - that calls for a thief. We should leave
this job to the persona. In the name of Harman..."
"Master. This is harsh. Harsher than hell. Let's knock this target off quick.
Master, you shouldn't have to bother with the sushi chef. Use the personas'
usual dirty tricks to pulverize him. Bullets won't hit the sushi chef. So,
listen here, willya? Do what you have to do. There's no such thing as playing
square in this world. Aim for the ceiling. In the name of Harman..."
"Master. This is harsh. And getting harsher yet! I can't lie. The homeland is
out of control. Thundering toward...who knows where. Master, please tell me.
Areyou not frightened? Can a nation have a will? I'm not sure anymore. What
makes a unit? Can people be counted in units? I cannot accept the way the
homeland kills. In the name of Harman..."
Trademark statement - None. Iwazaru only has one appearance in this level. He
then leaves his role to the Cult Member.
"Master. Ew! Major grossness. I just can't take it on a physiological level. I
can't stand afros. There's no way around it. I'm going to take a break. A
member of the Afro Cult will do a cameo in this show. When you see him, search
around that area. Now I'll be taking my leave. In the name of Harman..."
:::ENCOUNTER Part 1:::
Trademark statement - Varies
"Master. It's wonderful! Just wonderful! I just love rollercoasters. But first,
let's find that white-haired punk with a gun. The children are in trouble. The
fun will have to wait. In the name of Harman..."
"Master. Very good...A very good idea, but...you haven't got enough strength
to go on! We need the power of a true hero of the ring. A hero who can destroy
anything. In the name of Harman..."
"Master. Enough! Enough of this place! Let's hurry to the rides! This place is
dead. A thing of the past. Ain't worth our time! If only we had the ring...If
only we had THAT ring...In the name of Harman..."
"Master. This is great, I feel just great. I was nearly complimented to death.
And boy, did it feel great! By whom? By the other me inside the mirror. This
may surprise you, but I'm an infamous narcissist. No, not my profile! It's not
my best angle. Check out my face, from the front! Yes, that's better. The path
to the future shall open. In the name of Harman..."
:::ENCOUNTER Part 2:::
Trademark statement - "That won't do."
"Master. That won't do. That just won't do at all! There's just no excuse. How
could you let a kidnapper get away alive? I must be more strict. I must stay
vigilant! In the name of Harman..."
"Master. That won't do. You must sometimes use a carrot! There's something very
important I must say, but just between you and me, you know, off the record?
Whitehair is a neurotic fellow. This house may look normal, but it's actually
protected by very heavy security. You'll have to proceed carefully, which calls
for Four-eyes. Always better safe than sorry...In the name of Harman..."
"Master. That won't do, not at all. It's entirely inefficient. You fail to
understand that your job is to nail Whitehair. You should be prepared to give
your life to take his. Whitehair isn't going to wait around for you. Only the
Hellion can destroy the core. In the name of Harman..."
"Master. That won't do. That won't do at all. Give it some thought. Don't
repeat the same mistake. Did you already forget the crack? Thank goodness...
The mask works wonders here. Recall the skill of the mask. In the name of
"Master. That won't do, you're doing it all wrong. Well, at this point, you
probably would rather not hear me say that. I'll just stay out of your way.
Remember, there's a ring for extinguishing flame...In the name of Harman..."
"Master. That won't do. Forgive my criticism. Forgive my arrogance. Lord knows,
I hate myself for this. The self-loathing is frothing over! Drowning in my own
pool of hate! Empty the pool, empty it now, for all our sakes! In the name of
Trademark statement -"This is it! Look at what I found."
"Master. This is it! Yes, this! The sight I yearned for. Some much-awaited R&R.
But we must not let our guard down. The enemy has footholds even here. The
terror has gripped the world. Heaven Smile has reached calamity status. You
must stay vigilant. In the name of Harman..."
"Master. These! Please collect these! The creator's soul lies in here! The
artist came up with a very solid lock. To break it, you'll need these. I'm sure
they'll come in handy. I'll go ahead and begin searching. Leave it to me, just
this once! I'm the hero this time! In the name of Harman..."
"Master. This is it! Look at what I found. I stole it from a defeated female
office drone. Of course, she's rather have me steal her! Use it at the artist's
mansion. The mask is hot, hot, I tell you! In the name of Harman..."
"Master. This is it! Look at what I found. I made a deal with an infamous quack.
Life is only what you bargain for. Use it at the artist's mansion. What's that?
Oh, this? It's called a Lost City. Go this way and that, but you're bound to
end up where you started. Find your way using sound. This is a job for the
Punk...In the name of Harman..."
"Master. This is it! Look at what I found. A stagnating youth held on to this
for dear life. One really must live for the moment. Use it at the artist's
mansion. Barefoot is ready and raring to go. In the name of Harman..."
"Master. This is it! Look at what I found. Discarded by bickering lovers. Love
can shatter like glass. Use it at the artist's mansion. This is a job for the
Thief. In the name of Harman..."
"Master. This is it! Look at what I found. I got this from a nun. She had quite
a rack I must say. A kid left it behind after a confession. Personally? Master
is my only god. Use it at the artist's mansion. In the name of Harman..."
"Master. This is it! Look at what I found. Discarded by a flustered assistant
director. He clashed violently with the real director. Differences of nuance
can destroy relationships. Use it at the artist's mansion. In the name of
"Master. This is it! Look at what I found. I beat out a hairy-chested model for
a job as a subject for a painting. And this was my payment. Master, stop it!
You mustn't move an inch. The scene is nothing without me! Use it at the
artist's mansion. In the name of Harman..."
"Master. This is it! Look at what I found. Today the windmills stand still. A
day of calm. A day of despair. If only we had that ring...Then the door would
open...Use it at the artist's mansion. In the name of Harman..."
:::SMILE Part 1:::
Trademark statement - "It's dark."
"Master. It's dark. I'm overcome with gloom. It's time for the highlight. The
beginning of the end. To be honest, I'm frightened. It's a terrible ending, for
sure. Let's quit this whole charade. You mustn't strain your body any further!
Leave this to the Barefoot. In the name of Harman..."
"Master. It's dark. The prospects are so very dark. I feel a dull tide of
despair. This is sure to mean something. My old intuition speaks to me - 'You
are surrounded by vicious traps. Perhaps this has gone far enough.' Any more of
this, and you'll take years off your life. Leave this to the Hellion. In the
name of Harman..."
"Master. It's dark. I'm in a tailspin of confusion. It's all so transparent, it
is! The climax is where the scenes of the dead come in. They walk the
construction site without reason. They utter sweet nothings without reason.
Their smiles shine without reason. It's all a trap! A trap that leads to death!
I can see through it all! I'm keenly attuned to the omens of death. And this
place is trouble.
Behold! This light! They thirst for blood! They thirst for meat!
We are perfectly ready to return home. Please, cut the cord. In the name of
"Master. It's dark. Much too dark! I can't take it. They were shot here, too.
Six were killed. This portends an ill fate. I can see the remnant spirits.
Their faces...Gradually rise up...
Leave this to the Mask. In the name of Harman..."
"Master. It's dark. Dark as in screeching for death! Meaning, big trouble! This
place is bad news! Bad news with a capital 'B'! And if I say it's bad news,
you'd better believe it's bad news! Let's leave this to the Thief. In the name
"Master. It's dark. Much too dark! Way too much atmosphere! I smell a rat. A
bloody rat! A maimed rat! Danger level at RED and approaching DEFCON 5! Omigod
omigod omigod, Oh My God! We're in for it! Once you use the ring, you can never
go back! It's the time of reckoning! There's no looking back! In the name of
:::SMILE Part 2:::
Trademark statement - "This is hot!"
"Master. This is hot! Ouch! Feel the sting! A hot, muggy night...I'm feeling
rather aroused. A titillating fragrance wafting through the air. A perfume
called Conspiracy! Master, this may be your last job. Use the personas of the
Syndicate with abandon. In the name of Harman..."
"Master. This is hot! It's those suffocatingly hot enemies! But, who are those
two? Acting like kings...Probably think they're hot stuff. Well I'll be damned!
NOT A WORD OR EVEN A HELLO! All gathered up with minions in tow. It's enough to
make me wretch. Add a cigar to the picture, and behold, our decadent times. He
could learn a thing or two from my understated Master. Use Barefoot for the
ladies' room. In the name of Harman..."
"Master. This is hot! I feel a hot hint coming on! The podium is sacred. A
typical first day of class. Teacher writes the students' names on the
blackboard. Hm, what's that? I think I see some numbers...Maybe you ought to
check them? In the name of Harman..."
"Master. I can feel it. I can really feel it! This is the end! I don't want to
see Master die! I've seen enough. I'm prepared to resign unless you listen to
Master, hear me out one last time. I'm worried about something. Are you sure
you don't remember those two gentlemen? There's something about them...I can't
get it out of my mind. Please don't return to the hotel. You must avoid those
This really is the end. But still, I...I have the utmost respect for you,
Master. Please acquire all the information on the boy. In the end, the path
will open. In the name of Harman..."
Iwazaru's last hint to the killer7 is not to go back to the Union Hotel.
Garcian ignores his warning and pays a visit to Harman Smith and Dimitri
Nightmare. He soon discovers he is Emir Parkreiner...
In the Epilogue however, Iwazaru must make one final appearance. Emir pays a
visit to Battleship Island and meets Kenjiro Matsuoka. Kenjiro tells Emir the
Last Smile is in the room behind him. Emir enters and chases the final Heaven
Smile through the basement until he finally corners him. He shoots it dead, and
it falls into the light - revealing Iwazaru, with the face of Kun Lan.
7. Cult Member
The Cult Member is an advocate of Andrei Ulmeyda, being one of the more senior
members of the 'Messiah's' 'Afro Cult' (as Iwazaru might put it). Iwazaru
leaves the hints for Ulmeyda Intercity to the Cult Member, citing a morbid fear
The Cult Members' information is violently religious and often punctuated with
preachings and ravings about 'Father', 'God' - the great Ulmeyda. As such, his
information is not always reliable or neutral, and sometimes borders on
mystical or confusing, more so than Iwazaru's vague hints.
He dresses in First Life's traditional pink workmen's clothes, is of Caucasian
descent, and obviously sports an obnoxious hairstyle.
"Do you believe in God? Down with the status quo! Hear me out, just for 3
seconds! It'll be done before you know it. And you won't regret a moment! Ever
heard of a minimal safety net? Just hear me out! A pro wrestler would wreak
havoc on that semi-truck! You must believe!"
"God is the truth. God is a thrill! What lies in the fine line between truth
and fiction is what's called a miracle! Have you experienced it? God and the
pigeons are one! Trust the numerous pigeons! You need the ring for the vase!
God has experiential truth!"
"Don't trust anybody. Don't even trust God. But you can trust Travis. The
hitchhiker at the gas station. The one in the tank top. Trust the tank top!"
"Have you seen that great adventure movie? The one about the ring? It's an
autobiography by our father. To mark father's thanksgiving, that movie was
created along with a collection. Every one of the collection is a priceless
treasure. There is a secret figure in the collection. It's number 12. He put
that rare one, the 12th up for sale at an auction. That's why I had to kill him.
But the 12th one has not been relocated...Perhaps his spirit has hidden it in
revenge. The world is full of mysteries..."
"God has oomph! God loves vigour! God shuns the everyday! Where is the photo of
God? May blood spurt from your eyes when you stare upon it! It's inside of you!
The photo is inside of you! Check your pockets! Try pressing the start button!
You are the truth!"
"How do you express your faith? I just believe firmly in Father. You need to
collect all of the Father collections. Then Father will open the door. Father
never breaks his promise. The collections are the flesh of our Father."
"Your faith in Father is strong. He will surely be sympathetic to your cause.
But for everything there is a proper procedure. You must look into the eyes of
Father. Answer all of Father's questions with perfection. Father loves
perfection. Father has high hopes for you."
Considering this man is only really fanatically devoted to Andrei Ulmeyda, why
has he been killed by Emir? This question probably won't come to initial
players or will be quickly brushed aside should you think of it, but the answer
is an interesting albeit speculative one.
As above, you can see the Cult Member's longest speech concerns the man
murdered for hiding the 12th Ulmeyda figurine. The member states he himself
killed the man. Perhaps this certain Cult Member was a skilled assassin and
dirty worker working for Andrei Ulmeyda. Considering his fanatical tendencies,
other human lives would not have mattered one bit to him in the interests of
the great Ulmeyda. Therefore, the government had Emir knock him off.
So why has he chosen to become a Remnant Psyche? He evidently has unfinished
business...the answer of course, is that he still wants to help his beloved
Andrei Ulmeyda. His relationship with his master could be compared with
Iwazaru's service of Harman; two very similar roles with the player, and two
very fanatical servicemen to their Masters.
Yoon-Hyun is a middle-aged man with old ties to the killer7. He dresses in a
blue jacket, brown trousers, and a white undershirt. His purpose within the
game is to help the player solve puzzles with vague hints.
Yoon's most distinctive feature is of course the red mask he holds in his right
hand. The mask lusts for thick blood. Should the player shoot the mask and have
sufficient thick blood the mask will give a far simpler explanation to the
solution of said puzzle. However, it expresses great contempt for you, refers
to you as 'loser', and Yoon himself will flip two birds at you while he gives
you the obvious solution. Loser.
I have only included Yoon-Hyun's final monologue because most of his other
speeches do not pertain to the game's story at all and would make fairly
mundane reading. The first monologue is without mask; the second is with the
"Mr. Smith. Oh my, that's too bad. So sorry, Mr. Smith. I'm all out. I've given
all I've got. I'm closing up the shop. Thanks for all the business. Now, let me
give a little back. It's very important, you hear?
If you want to survive in this world, brand your chest with these words: 'Don't
depend on anybody'. From now on, you're all on your own. The only way it should
be, for the honourable killer."
"So, it is farewell, loser. The loser like no other. But even losers must make
Make friends with disaster. Misfortune is your cousin.
'The big man for the safe'. Leave your regrets behind. Your third eye will open.
Tomorrow it could be you."
Yoon-Hyun's death is shrouded in mystery seeing as his story is rarely
elaborated upon and his demise never touched. All we know is that Yoon was the
informant for the Harman Assassins and also the owner of the Hotel Union. The
Hotel Union was where the Bloody Heartland murders of the killer7 took place.
Therefore we can assume that Yoon's death took place around the time that the
killer7 were killed. In fact, it may have been the same night as there is
reason to believe he may well have betrayed his 'friends' (giving Emir
Parkreiner their locations). However, the Bloody Heartland would not be
satisfied and probably killed Yoon to prevent him from blabbing about the
This point is given another foundation with Yoon's tendency to beat about the
bush without the mask. The moment you pay him thick blood - money for the mask
- he will give you the real information you desire. Yoon-Hyun was probably
bribed to betray the killer7.
Why does Yoon-Hyun then appear frequently as a Remnant Psyche to help the
killer7 in such a useful way? Straight up, he probably feels a degree of guilt
to those he believes to be his old friends (remember Emir can physically change
into his alternate personalities) or is trapped in his old informant ways. When
the mask is activated, he can display his true negative feelings for the
killer7. These negative feelings were probably why he accepted the bribes.
There are a number of other answers to this question and the question of Yoon's
death, but this is not a plot analysis and only a moderate guide to the Remnant
Psyches. Should I do a full plot analysis, you can expect to see these theories
in that. Loser.
9. Past Targets
Susie Sumner is a Caucasian teenage girl appearing as a disembodied head with
shoulder-length brown hair. She loves small spaces and often appears with the
lost rings of the killer7 in her mouth - she always returns these to the
killer7 when encountered.
Susie is extremely unstable even in death - this coupled with her teenage
feminist views can make for some of the most amusing yet disturbing dialogues
in the game. She frequently uses internet emoticons to convey her point further.
I have tried my best to emulate Susie's chosen internet emoticons. However, due
to my limited knowledge of how to get all the symbols and general dislike of
using such weeaboo emoticons, some are not exact. -_-
Target - ANGEL
Ring - Fire Ring
Location - In a dryer in the Laundry
"Well, hello, Smith. ('-')/ Looks like it's cloudy today. Which is really too
bad. (#_#,) Not a day to hang out the laundry. A great day to use a dryer,
though. But you know...I just love this one. (~.~) I'll never let anybody
have it. You know why? Well, you should. I love to stay inside. You left this
behind, didn't you?"
*Gives Fire Ring*
"If you've finished your business, could you hurry up and leave? You're very
much in the way. ('#') Assassins should have better manners!"
Target - SUNSET Part 1
Ring - Water Ring
Location - In a drawer in a secret room in the roof
"Well, hello, Smith. ('-')/ Raining today, is it? You know what? I never go to
school when it rains. But my mom doesn't understand. Stupid mom, with all her
reasons! She says, 'Go to school!' So I jumped down from the 2nd floor. That's
a compound fracture, mind you. (TT) Pulverized into mush. (T_T) Splat!
Absolutely 'fubar'ed. #(TT) Took 6 months to heal. So I got to take a half-
year off from school! Whoopee! \('.')/ You forgot this, didn't you?"
*Gives Water Ring*
"Not a single classmate came to visit me in hospital. Mom? What about her? Of
course she didn't come. (^^) She jumped with me. And I landed on top of her.
Like, the coolest thing, you know. (T,T)/ I'll leave the rest to your
imagination. The imagination of a killer..."
Target - SUNSET Part 2
Ring - Wind Ring
Location - In a box in the basement
"Well, hello, Smith. ('-')/ I finally get some fresh air. It's not that I don't
like tight places, but there are limits to everything. This place is a bit too
tight. A box? It's no way to treat someone. q(-.-)p I look like a victim of a
mutilation murder. Like slashed into pieces. Pieces? It completely slipped my
mind. Maybe I've fallen to pieces. Family's in pieces. Lover's in pieces.
Body's in pieces. My whole life is about pieces. Then I figured, why stop now?
People I don't care for, also in pieces. Before I knew it, I was all alone.
Then I blew up the facility to pieces. And now there's nobody left. That's when
I met him...Daddy Longlegs! (~.~)!! Here, I'll give you this now."
*Gives Wind Ring*
"It made me so happy. He was so very kind. He enveloped me in warmth. Extending
his hand for a gentle caress...Then he reached out gently for the grand prize
down south...Now that really drove me mad! (','#) Next moment, I'm looking at a

Location - Between the bumper of a car and the floor
"Hello, there, Smith. ('-')/ Muggy night, isn't it? Rather exhilarating, isn't
it? The perfect night...(//.//) For a summer date! He rolled up on his favorite
custom bike. Of course, it's all a secret from mom and dad! He quietly parks
the bike in front of the house. And tiptoes over to my window. I even have my
shoes ready, so I can slip out from the 2nd floor. Isn't it the perfect escape
plan? He throws the rock to signal me. But it smashed straight through the
window, and square on my head. Now, that really pissed me off. Daddy's hunting
rifle just happened to be sitting in my room. With blood trickling into my eyes,
I couldn't see too well. But his head getting shot straight off? Yes, I
remember that quite vividly. Brains spurted out like cottage cheese. Oh, you
forgot this, didn't you?"
*Gives Power Ring*
"I had to move soon after that. My new room was all white. Quite an antiseptic
place, with almost nothing at all inside. A woman in white looked after me day
after day. I believe we called the room...solitary confinement? The final stop
for killers. (~'.')"
Susie Sumner, after numerous murders of friends and family, was obviously
finally put into a mental home. However, she escaped having killed numerous
program directors. She requested work from the Smith Syndicate after that, but
was eliminated instead, in such a way that only her head appears to the killer7.
It is completely unknown why Susie chooses to re-appear as a Remnant Psyche to
confront the killer7. Perhaps to have someone as an equal to boast of her
murders to, or it may have something to do with her repeated possessions of the
killer7's rings. Whatever the reason, she mysteriously disappears after
Encounter Part 2.
I don't want to come across as a professor here, but you should think about the
significance of Curtis' hobby and consider Susie's reaction to this, hence why
she chose to finally depart to Heaven...or perhaps Hell.
Kess Bloodysunday is a young boy who appears always in a green and white
horizontal-striped shirt and brown shorts. He always wears a terrified
expression on his face with pure white eyes and a bloodstain on his shirt.
He frequently expresses accounts of nightmares of his murderer and the Heaven
Smile. He is extremely troubled within death but often makes childish jokes to
keep himself amused. His purpose to aid the killer7 is to tell them of coming
bosses' weaknesses. He shows a fear of many of these bosses and hints to being
killed repeatedly for his actions.
"Please help me! It suddenly disappeared. A white light flashed before me.
Everything is transparent. So I held his hand. Whose hand was it? Then before I
knew it I was lost, all alone again. Please help me! I can't see a thing."
"Please help me! That monster is quick as lightning. I tried my best to run
away, but it caught up with me anyway. Hurry! Kill it before it explodes! No!
I'm going to die again today! Somebody please help!"
"Now I remember. I stole the wings. And then...A woman glared at me with a stern
look. But I didn't run away. Then I saw it...On the woman's back...Were faces...
They were smiling. Heh heh...Funny faces. But you'd better erase the faces..."
:::SUNSET Part 1:::
"I can't stand it anymore! I've seen enough nightmares! I won't believe anybody.
The next monster...it's super-huge, in a certain part! I can't recall...I can't
remember which part! You mustn't shoot it! You must not shoot that part! Heheh,
"No, it's just as I thought! I remember! I'm scared...I'm very scared! It's a
bloodbath...She's a strong girl. You've got to keep shooting, or you'll lose...
You must keep shooting..."

"I have a dream. When I grow up, I'm going to become the President. I'll make
the world a place with no bad people. I promise you. I'll kill every last scum.
It'll be a peaceful place. And nobody can stop me.
But you know what? There are two people who keep screwing things up. The old
man just won't die. You have to smash his brains to finally kill him for good.
And big old man, your tie is crooked..."
:::ENCOUNTER Part 1:::
"This is a real amusement park? I'd only seen them in my dreams. I'm really
here, in Ishizaka Land! I can play with the Ceramic Smile. If you don't aim

devil! If you chase them too far, you'll get it good! It's all so dramatic!
The heart doesn't lie. You'll be surprised. The Ceramic Smile is dumb as

spotlight! Expose it all! Pick them off! Shoot them fast! Save me..."

"I haven't told a soul. I had to make a promise. To keep it secret no matter
what. Will you believe what I tell you? Do you promise?
That monster doesn't move. But if its neck moves, you're in big trouble. Before
you know it...you'll go completely blank."
"Are those girls alive? I heard them crying. It must have been forced upon them.
The poor girls.
That man has a glare in his eyes. A sharp, evil glare. It's scary...You can't
trust a man's eyes. You must trust the pigeon. The last pigeon is unique. It's
the neck, the neck..."
:::SMILE Part 1:::
"Hah hah hah hah hah hah hah hah hah hah hah hah. Heh heh heh heh heh. Don't
get me wrong! I didn't lose a screw or anything. It just tickled. Tickled up
and down my spine. That monster is gross. Covered in bumps. Pop them gross
bumps. Somebody, put it out of its misery!"
:::SMILE Part 2:::
"Don't bother me. Go away! The last monster has come! There are holes
everywhere. Like something might come out. What is that?! I mean really? If you
get hit by it, it's all over.
I got it! It's the face! It came out from his face! Shoot them all down quick!"
"Mystery solved. I finally figured it out. I was killed. Killed by the three-
The big man laughed at me. Then I couldn't move. It was just a simple prank!
Nothing to get all angry about! I just wanted a little attention.
Mother never looks my way. Daddy ignores me. Don't feel sorry for me. I just
had to kill somebody, or I'd die. And it wouldn't end until somebody killed me.
I don't dream anymore. So there's nothing more to say. Thanks, for finishing me
off. Beware of three-eyes."
It is clear to see that Kess remembers at the end that he was killed by Emir
Parkreiner - 'three-eyes'. Once he remembers this, he finally departs to
paradise, free of his troubles.
It is likely that these troubles were the very things that kept him bound to
the planet. Either a willingness to resolve them or more likely (as a child)
his fear of them kept him around on Earth. He appears to the killer7 and gives
them help as gratitude for finally killing him.
Why grateful? Kess tells of bad parentage and seems to have had a very unhappy
childhood. He was therefore inclined to murder, notably using bombs rather than
killing with weapons. This is interesting as Kess, having set bombs, did not
have to see the deaths of his victims which is indeed something a young boy may
not have wanted to witness.
Because of his tragic childhood and reasons for murder, Johnny Gagnon mentions
that even the killer7 were reluctant to kill him at first. However he was
finally put to rest and condemned to be blind for the rest of his days as a
Remnant Psyche. Again, I'm not a professor, but think about the various reasons
why Kess was made blind from what has already been mentioned here.
Travis Bell is easily the most interesting Remnant Psyche in the game.
Appearing as a grey-skinned, white-haired man with a black tanktop (complete
with odd phrase printed on the front) and trousers, he offers vague hints to
These hints to the player may simply help you to progress through the game, but
Travis often offers political and underworld commentary and often knows more
than he lets on. His monologues can be confusing but are there to help along
the story and can provide some light relief when coupled with his occasionally
absurd actions that he performs while delivering the speech.
Travis is a knowledgeable man who can be scornful or mocking of both the
killer7 and their job, but his attitude is overall likeable and his death
intriguing, if rarely elaborated upon.

"Do you mind if I tell you straight up? I heard it through the grapevine. Chief,
you're not the only one after the owner of this joint. Japan is controlled by
the United Nations Party. If the UN Party goes down, Japan's minority party
will take control. In other words, the Liberal Party would take the reigns.
There's some nasty shit cooking in this restaurant, and it ain't momma's fried

flower's gonna go up like a firework. And it's up to the owner Fukushima to

The homeland? Or Japan? If you kill the owner, Japan goes down the toilet. Are
you alright with that, man? And be careful of the new enemy type."
Shirt - Good Shape
Action - Hanging upside down from a tree by his legs
"Smith, have a minute to share? It could open your eyes...Japan doesn't have its
own defence system. Its survival is contingent on the United States. But as far
as the homeland is concerned, Japan is extra baggage. Its usefulness as an ally
is long past. Straight up, it ain't worth saving, you see? That's reality for
you. So, chief, you still gonna do it? You know what is meant by fireworks?
They're missiles. The explosion that occurs when missiles collide...Well, sure,
that's a beautiful sight indeed! But you'll only see it if the defence system

"The owner, Fukushima, is mixed up in all sorts of things. Even the
International Ethics Committee is getting involved. Chief, you watch yourself.
The Ethics agents, or Hyenas, are a motley crew of rejects. But the assassins
trained in the Core? Now, those guys are for real. They're after the Yakumo
Party Cabinet Policy. Or the Yakumo for short. It's just a bunch of paper but
it can change the world. UN Party, my friend."
Shirt - Good Luck! [Shirt colour is blue]
Action - One hand leaning against the wall, the other on his hip
"Straight up, he's desperate. Fukushima's only ace in the hole is the Yakumo.
The secret conference of the U.S.-Japan Territory Talks held at the Kaku
Building tomorrow represents the time limit. The Yakumo will determine whether

chief? Kill him and sink Japan. Or let him live and get the Yakumo. The Yakumo
is dangerous. It will allow the United States to rule the world. The course of
humankind is in your hands, chief."

Action - Leaning back against a wall, looking downwards
"She's hottie, ain't she? What a waste, though. The last fruitless attempt at
resistance by the Liberal Party. Using a woman as a weapon? That doesn't bode
well for them. The kind of thing only an inept party would resort to. Japanese
politicians are rotten to the core. Smith, there's no sex discrimination here.

where the elites of the world gather. While the backroom movers and shakers
stared eachother down, the debate heated up over the subject of the disposal of
Japan. Not a single country argued in her favour. The Japanese territory would
be a prize to any neighbouring country. Straight up, Japan is on her own."
Shirt - Scorpion
Action - Relaxing on a sofa
"You wanna hear something? I'll tell you straight up, okay? Basically, these
talks are a war of proxy for the owner, Fukushima. But the attendees are 3rd-
rate bureaucrats. And when the prey is sub-par, so are the assassins. What a

determine the fate of Japan."

destroy the UN Party? Why do they let them live? Somebody is pulling strings.

"There's quite a history between the old man and The Hellion. The Hellion'll go

"You sure don't show much interest in your pals. Do these people even exist?
You're not one of those multiple personalities, are you? The old man was the

he's a black market organ trader. And that's his 'public' face. His private

"Pedro siphoned capital to a foreign syndicate. But then he tried to skim a
little off the top. The members of the Seattle self-defence force signed a pact

take Dan out, or so the story goes."

monopolised the market. Before, the rule was the old man had the girls, Pedro
had the boys. That is, until Pedro broke it. There's a big business in orphans.
But there was a shortage in fresh organs. Heaven Smile caused the birth-rate to
drop more rapidly. Increases in contagious disease started eating away at
bodies. And voila - control of the market on boys was no longer enough. That's
why Pedro betrayed the old man. Pedro can run but he can't hide."

smell the stench of deceit? Smith, go and peer upon it with your own two eyes.
The truth behind this country..."

nice place to control? The lord of this state is the lord of the land. But who

Harman's problem. Harman's linked to this school. I know you can't believe it.
But it's the cold, hard truth. If you have any doubts, go to the gymnasium.
But I'm warning you, the truth is too big to even begin to scratch the surface.
But Smith, I do believe that you can find the truth. I'm almost sure of it.
Because you're on the ground.
Mills waits at the hotel. The final battle is not far off. I'm telling you
straight up, this is about it from me. I wish you all the luck, and die like a
dog. Then laugh it off.
I'll be waiting for you with a grin as wide as the truth."
Travis was the killer7's target. He was the 'killer who got killed on the job',
if we're totally honest here. Travis got involved with deep underground circles,
and when a guy does that, his life expectancy happens to short considerably.
All we know about Travis before that is that he is evidently an experienced
killer to warrant an order to be killed by Emir Parkreiner.
Travis returns as a Remnant Psyche to inform the killer7, primarily, of the
political implications of their actions and other underground organisations'
doings. Why does Travis want to do this though? To mock the killer7? To laugh
at them? Or perhaps he just feels a certain attachment to the people who killed
him. In his own words, well...straight up, that shit felt good.
10. Defeated Targets
Jean is a young French spy for the International Ethics Committee. In other
words, he is a pawn. He also died in vain seeing as how the killer7 prevented
the missiles hitting Japan anyway.
Jean was a fan of wrestling in his youth, though why he chose the path of
espionage is unknown. Like many other characters in killer7, Jean's story is
that of a promising life stopped by a tragic death.
"Pro wrestlers sure are awesome. It reminds me of my childhood. We'd watch
wrestlers fighting on the TV. I just loved Mask de Smith. Have you ever
considered returning to the ring? Prove that the ultimate art of fighting is
Professional Wrestling in a Vale Tudo match.
Matsuken has the Yakumo. He wants to change the world. He believes that Japan
will arise from the ashes. This war won't end until you kill him. When you
finally meet Matsuken, this can all end."
Jean DePaul dies at the hands of Mask de Smith in a short battle in the
basement of the Kaku Building. He relied on his bullet-proof armour to keep him
alive, but Jean did not anticipate that Mask's grenade launchers would
literally bring down the roof on him. Sensing defeat, Jean took his pistol and
This is a sign of a man completely giving up; tired of life, tired of his job,
and tired of the world. Jean expresses an affinity for Mask in his monologue,
and his reminiscence of TV wrestling seems to have an edge of sorrow or regret
to them. As I said, a talented young man in a dangerous field of work makes for
a tragic death.
Julia is a young Japanese woman who works as a skilled yet moderately unknown
assassin for Japan's Liberal Party. What she did before her job as Toru
Fukushima's secretary is unknown, but her main role in the game is to
assassinate her employer in an attempt to get the Yakumo.
"Shall I introduce myself? I'm the assassin you killed. Remember? It may sound
a bit odd, but you finally freed me. In the underground world, your life is
just a commodity. And when your life isn't even your own, you may as well be
dead. All I ever wanted were the simple pleasures like a vacation like this on
the outside. Farewell, reaper."
Julia is pursued by the killer7 after murdering Fukushima, and faces off
against Con Smith in a one-minute dual-pistol battle. She loses the duel and
kills herself using a secret explosive gadget hidden in her necklace.
Her monologue suggests a story to Jean's, except she openly expresses a desire
to quit her dangerous job as a professional assassin and enjoy a vacation and
the 'simple pleasures' of life. Unfortunately, she never gets to experience
this in her physical life, but thanks the killer7 anyway for freeing her from
the never-ending cycle of work she had found herself in.
~Hiroyasu Kirahashi/Shinya Akiba~
Two old patriotic Japanese men who head Japan's UN Party. They have an open
dislike of young men without balls, such as Kenjiro Matsuoka. They taunt
Matsuoka until he 'kills' them both. However, as accomplices of Kun Lan, they
do not truly die and wait in the conference room for the killer7. Kun Lan and
Matsuoka leave the room to save Japan.
Kirahashi is the tall old man with black hair, while Akiba is the short old man
with grey hair. Neither seems to have dominance over the other, and they are
likely very old friends who are tired of seeing their country go to waste.
NOTE - The two speak together. The line breaks signal when the other politician
starts speaking. The first speaker is Kirahashi, the second Akiba, and so on...
"Do you like war?
You should know answer to that. I don't consider it war.
That's a one-sided judgement. In Japan, 80 million lives disappear in an
instant. An entire country destroyed and the world stands by in silence.
That's because this is an age of power. Partner, you're an idealist.
But you know what? They live in fright. The maggots live on. This should be
quite a sight.
We will have our revenge. The whole world will pay for its sins.
Our will lives on."
The two men are definitively killed in a long range battle with Kaede Smith,
who shoots their brains out with her sniper rifle.
It is interesting to note that Kirahashi and Akiba are the first main villains
of the game who do not willingly commit suicide (unlike Jean and Julia). They
are even 'killed' once but live to fight the killer7, suggesting a very
determined will to serve Japan until the end (though they may only live due to
Kun Lan's intervention).
They are still their old bitter selves in their duologue. They still hate the
young generation, or 'maggots', and vow revenge. They can't do much
unfortunately, as they are certainly dead. Their will only lives on in Kenjiro
Arguably the most interesting 'villain' in the game, Andrei Ulmeyda is the 'man
with the plan'. He is a coloured Texan man who apparently runs his own
successful trading company, First Life, having first been in a postman in the
traditional 'rags to riches' mould. He is also very dangerous and has come to
be viewed as a Messiah of sorts by his Cultist workers.
This Messiah image is contributed to by the fact that Andrei is a living
miracle, having repeatedly infected himself with various deadly diseases and
survived them time after time, creating vaccines for them, perhaps for the good
of the world. However, his Heaven Smile infection proves to difficult for him
to overcome, so he calls on the killer7 to kill him before he changes into a
truly monstrous being that won't be able to control the urge to kill...
"How is Clemence? He's going to become a big man. He has my DNA. The teachings
of the Yakumo will guide him.
My life was a blur of risk-taking. I'd suffer withdrawal without the constant
stimulus of danger. Garcian Smith...I'm just like you. You have to kill just to
feel alive, right? Well, I have to be face-to-face with death to get any taste
of life. We are both bound by our passions."
Andrei Ulmeyda is ambushed by the US Army, however, they inadvertently activate
the Heaven Smile brewing inside him. Andrei's head is blown off and his
showering blood kills all present, except the killer7. Kevin Smith kills the
newly formed Heaven Smile Ulmeyda and finally puts him to rest.
Andrei, knowing that his number was soon up, had already made plans to leave
his empire to Gabriel Clemence. He appears as a Remnant Psyche to Clemence and
advises him to be a successful man, but later appears to the killer7. He
expresses a similar sentiment to Julia but instead states that he depended on
his 'life...of risk-taking'. This view is echoed by Benjamin Keane near the
end of the game.
Curtis Blackburn is a notorious American assassin with ties to all sorts of
underground organisations. He also has a nasty habit of paedophilia. He is
extremely ruthless and will kill anyone who gets in his way. He is also very
paranoid thanks to all of the old enemies he has made and has a house full of
traps. However, one man he supposedly murdered is out to get him at all costs.
"Old dogs should keep their mouths shut. I'll keep this short. The day I was
killed by you, my long-awaited wish was granted.
Those so called heroes are fakes. Don't be fooled by their trickery. You're
being sucked in by a fantasy. A world of illusions bred by a madman. Hell,
what'd you expect from a comic book hero?
See you in hell."
Curtis is assassinated by Dan Smith in a quick-draw duel in his basement.
Much like Julia, Curtis seems to state in his monologue he wanted to be free
from his world of assassination. However, this view could be challenged as
Curtis often killed for fun while Julia was always employed. He knows that
because of his decadent life he will be going to Hell, but also seems to
address Dan Smith particularly in following him to his new residence.
Curtis directly references the next villains, the Handsome Men, in his
monologue, and is extremely cynical of them. However, if you read further into
this, he is speaking directly to the reader in telling them they are being
'sucked in by a fantasy, 'a world of illusions bred by a madman'. Get off your
lazy ass and stop reading this guide, now, young man. Curtis is an illusion,
don't you see?
Handsome Black is the chief of the Handsome Men. He is often harnessed by his
creator, Trevor Pearlharbor, to perform assassinations and other bad deeds. His
last summoning by Trevor is to kill Dan Smith.
"Bloody Psychopaths killer7! This place marks your grave. Don't be scared.
killer7 committed a crime here. Six people dead. Is that not the work of the
We couldn't defeat them. There is no justice here. Only the purity of atrocity.
The voyage of the killer7 begins."
At first, Handsome Black, seems to have Dan Smith up against the wall, but a
misfire of his 'Handsome Wink' attack kills Trevor, a great irony in death for
the supposed seer. Dan Smith then gains a second breath and kills Handsome
Black at point-blank range.
Despite not being 'real' as such, Handsome Black makes an appearance in the
Union Hotel to hint, along with Travis, that things are not as they seem. He
signals the start of Garcian's uncovering of the truth with the words 'the
voyage of the killer7 begins'. Why do they always know more than they let on?
Benjamin Keane is the American principal of Coburn Elementary School, an
institution linked to the Presidential elections since their very conception.
He hangs Greg Nightmare, the Education Minister (and the most powerful man in
the United States), and hopes to become President following this crime.
He is confronted by Garcian in the final level of the game, and he begins a
game of Russian Roulette with the chief of the killer7. If Garcian loses, he
must kill the President of the United States of America. If Benjamin loses, he
will tell Garcian how to hit on women with 100% success. It's a deal.
The actor pulls the curtain himself. You never know what fate might bring. You
can't become the President without getting a little crazy.
Hear me out, killer.
You're standing on the wrong stage. Sometimes it's harder to let people live.
Listen up, killer.
This country is pumped. A monopoly on money, power, and interests. The reward?
See into the future. This nation will be the focus of concentrated fire. But it
still won't die.
Figure it out, killer.
I'm not dead. Blood flows through Japan again. The UN Party and the Opposition
Party are holding secret meetings.
Don't expose the nation's shame. Topple the young members of the UN Party.
Open the forbidden door. Your mission is to bury the dark pages of history. If
you do, paradise awaits you."
After 4 rounds with no shot fired, Benjamin points the gun to his head. He has
half a chance of dying, half a chance of living. If he lives, he has won. He
fires...and lives. Garcian must now kill the President.
However, Garcian takes the gun and points it to his head. He fires.
'This gun holds 7 bullets. I'm a professional'.
Keane knows he has lost now and before finishing the game expresses exactly the
same sentiment as Andrei Ulmeyda in getting pleasure out of putting his life on
the line. Keane then points the gun to his head and fires, killing himself.
Keane's monologue is the most mystic of all the Remnant Psyches, with a very
political theme yet morbid, secretive undertone. Much like the game, perhaps.
He issues an order to the killer7 in order to prevent the nation's shame from
being exposed, but it is unknown what he means by 'paradise awaits you', and
whether Garcian actually follows his order.
Oh, and by the way, what is the secret to hitting on women with 100% success?
They're all the same.
11. Christopher Mills
Christopher Mills is the killer7's informant and provides them with all the
information they need on their missions and targets. He is very good friends
with Garcian and has old ties to Dan Smith. Mills is another pawn of the
government, but before his death, manages to find out the secret behind the
voting system of the USA. Perhaps he is not so much of a pawn after all.
Garcian or the killer7 does not kill Mills. That is an obvious fact. So why
does he appear to Garcian as a Remnant Psyche? My guess, supported by how
Ulmeyda appears to Clemence earlier in the game, is that a Remnant Psyche can
also visit the one person they are closest to. In Mills' government agent case,
the only real friend he had was Garcian. Ulmeyda also saw a new Messiah in
Mills. That's the only explanation I can offer right now. Nothing deep, I know.
"Shit, I blew that one. I guess it figures.
What's wrong, brothers? Why the glum face? You know, I'd always wanted to die
like a guy in the movies. Chest riddled with bullets, right? Well, I got my
It's the work of the government. Our lives are no more valuable than an
insect's. Once you get close to the nation's secrets, you become expendable.
Did we open a black box?
Here's the truth. The nation's voting system is the key. I delved even further.
So, what do you think I found out about what it means to control a state
election? It's still a secret. In time you will know, brothers.
If you manage to survive, I'm sure we'll meet again. Sorry to keep you, but
this room is too dark. Please, light me a candle. I'll wait here."
"Did everything get cleaned up? Garcie, I'm glad you're okay. It was the last
promise. Anyway, I'll keep the explanation short.
Most ballot booths are at schools. The Education Ministry is in charge of the
schools. The results of the election are rigged from the start. Voting is just
for show. Before votes are counted, the Education Ministry does a switcheroo.
The biggest magic trick on Earth. In other words...
The most powerful man in the country is the Education Secretary.
But a Japanese put him out. The dog bit back at his owner. Revenge for being
left for dead. This is big trouble. Corrupt officials are at a loss. The
country has been revealed for what it is - a monster.
But will anything change? You expect some revolution? Well, a dog can't do shit.
Has a dying country ever created anything worth its salt?
Go and meet them. They're waiting up above.
Trust my words. I wouldn't do you wrong. Hurry, Garcie."
"Why the glum face? What happened? Garcie, don't cry. That ain't like you. The
last thing I want to see is you crying, Garcie. It just don't feel right.
...I see...I realised it after I was killed. I can see through your mask into
your heart. Garcie, what's this emotion I now see? Tears of sadness? Or of
hate? Tears of joy? Or of loneliness? Or mercy? I really have no idea, except
that I've never seen tears like those. The only way to wipe those tears away
is to overcome the past. A person doesn't get into this line of work without a
Enter the final room. Meet with Him. Then you can get on with things.
Times are tough for both of us. I'll be waiting for you in my new sleek on my
side of the world."
Mills knows a lot of things that other people don't want to even think about
and therefore also has a considerably shorter life expectancy than 'other
people'. Just as he is about to reveal a secret about Harman to Garcian, he is
shot and killed by Linda Vermillion.
In his monologues, Mills proves he is Garcian's closest friend. He is possibly
the only man who can see what goes on inside that pragmatic head and offers
sympathy when Garcian cries from his madness. He also finally reveals the true
system of elections in the USA to the player before directing Garcian to Harman
and Dimitri upstairs.
And of course, even in death, he still loves his cars. There are some things
about a guy you just can't change, you know?
12. Harman Smith
"Long journey...but it ends here, Garcian. No, I think it's time I called you
by your real name. Emir Parkreiner.
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Harman Smith. I am the man you saw in
your past. Do you remember? The incident where six people were murdered in this
hotel? You must have seen it yourself...because you were the killer.
The assassin Emir Parkreiner was the Ace of Aces. Who would have thought the
killer was a mere thirteen year-old?
It was a deliberate crime, targeted toward the Smith alliance. It consisted of
seven members but the leader wasn't included in the seven. Later investigations
found his dead body inside the safe of a school. The investigating unit called
them the killer7.
But the whole affair was never made public. Not because this was an aberration
from society, but because it involved national security issues.
Unfortunately a curse brought upon you by old tradition. You, Emir, are an
assassin controlled by the government. Someone is watching your every move.
From the second when I first took you in on the roof, you were one of the very
few assassins with class...But you were out of control. Still, there was
something venerable about you. Then it occurred to me, you were no longer a
Within you, ever so quietly, evil had opened its eyes."
