The purpose of this document is to transcribe the letters, 
written by Johnny Gagnon to Emir Parkreiner, in the CAPCOM 
game "Killer7." It is intended to be used as a public 
reference resource. All of the punctuation (and mis-
punctuation) has been preserved, as it is found in the 
game. As well, to the extent that the text of the letters 
incorporate obscene language, the obscene language has 
been transcribed as it is found in the game. 

I should explain that this document is one large spoiler. 
Do not read, if you have not finished the game and do not 
want to have key plot elements spoiled for you.


A: STILL ILL (Pigeon: Bianca)

Dear Emir,

It is a pleasure to make your acquaintance, and many thanks 
for choosing me for the job. My name is Johnny Gagnon, otherwise 
known as Speedster. I get excited when I slit a guy's. throat. 
I know that may be sick, but I do the best work in town. 

This is a report on the job. I'm sure you'll like what I 
have to say. I watched them like a hawk, so I think a 
hefty reward is in order!

There are 7 in the Smith Syndicate. Dan Smith, who uses a 
large caliber revolver. Kaede Smith, who uses a large 
automatic rifle. Con Smith, who uses 2 full auto pistols. 
Mask de Smith, who uses grenades. Kevin Smith, who uses 
knives. Coyote Smith, who uses a modified gun. Garcian 
Smith, who uses a small pistol. 

They are an armed force that rivals a small army. You 
wouldn't want to be on their bad side. In conclusion, 
it is in the interest of the United States to "keep" them 
around. There's no telling when they might come in handy. 

I'll be contacting you again,

Johnny Gagnon


Dear Emir,

Emir, we have a problem. A terrible thing has happened! I 
can hardly believe it, but the money is not in my account! 
I need your help. You got my last message didn't you?

I trusted you . . . Now don't let me down. Promise me!  
Wire me the money immediately. A hundred and twenty-five 
bucks is peanuts, I'm telling you!

The Smith Syndicate operates in strange ways.

Garcian Smith manages the other 6 personas, and mainly acts 
as a negotiator for work requests. Garcian never eliminates 
people himself. His role is to retrieve the bodies. Even 
if another persona is killed, it appears he is able 
to to [sic] bring him back to life. Like a wizard, I tell 
you . . . . 

However, it is my hunch that somebody off-stage is calling 
the shots and controlling Garcian. There must be a hidden 
mastermind separate from the active team. And it's likely 
that this mastermind assigns the jobs. Garcian is very 
loyal, and he values the organization. He controls the 
personas to keep the organization safe. He's a middle 
manager, you see. 

The members switch using the medium of television. But I 
have yet to determine what governs the switches.

The Smith Syndicate is composed of one sensible person and 
six freaks. I have never seen the personas interact with 
each other. Soon I expect to unmask the myth behind this 
strange group.

I'll be contacting you again,

Johnny Gagnon

C: WELL I WONDER (Pigeon: Mary)

Dear Emir,

This is a warning, Emir.

Transfer $100 to my account. I'm absorbing a $25 loss. 
Final offer. Alright? Nothing terrible has happened yet. 
It's time for you to send the money. Consider it a gift 
from me to you.

Surprisingly, the Smith syndicate has many talents. And I 
ain't talking about cheap tricks like swallowing goldfish 
or cramming your head into a rubber glove. They're on a 
whole other plane. I saw it with my own eyes. Heroes for 
our age! 

Dan Smith is straight out of Japanime. Launching balls of 
light and shit! Yeah, you bet it blew my socks off. Heck, 
I wanted to shake his hand and ask for an autograph! But 
I decided to put my life first.

Kaede Smith spurts blood from her arms. What a sick sight! 
And then what did she do? She flattened a wall, right 
before my eyes. She must have taken out some kind of 
barrier. That's what Kaede's blood can do! Sometimes her arm 
sucks blood. That's some stuff I didn't need to see, either! 

Mask de Smith is still a mystery, but I do know that he can 
do some sweet wrestling moves. He was a small-town pro 
wrestler who drew crowds to main events, but just before 
he made his debut in the New York scene, he mysteriously 
disappeared. This is common knowledge among fans. 

The only thing for sure is that there's more than meets the 
eye. An update will follow.

D: MEAT IS MURDER (Pigeon: Plenty)

Continuing my report.

Kevin Smith never fails to amaze. You won't believe this. 
But it's the straight up truth. The sucker is a real-life 
invisible man. At first, even I didn't believe it. This 
has gotta be a hoax, right? Well, shit. The guy's for real.
And then Con Smith. What a pain-in-the-ass punk. I can 
never catch him. It blew my socks off. Nine times! When 
he speeds off, he disappears. That's right. DIS-A-PPEARS! 
The Olympic records mean nothing with him running around. 

Coyote Smith has a thing. A thing for being a crook. But 
he's not like other thugs. He's fit; he jumps like an 
animal. Incredible athleticism. Not to mention, he can 
pick any padlock. He must've picked this up as a method of 
survival in a tough neighborhood. 

And then there's Garcian Smith. I really haven't seen him 
much. So everything I know is based on conjecture. Rumor 
has it he can spot the Heaven Smiles a mile away. This 
character is no joke, going up against monsters like that. 

My investigation continues.

E: BACK TO THE OLD HOUSE (Pigeon: Helga)

To my dearest Emir,

The world is falling into chaos, as those ruled by a deep 
darkness increase in number. There is one group they 
fear . . . . Have you heard of the Harman Assassins? 
I don't want to call them on you. Consider setting up 
a payment plan.
I found the target of their first job. His name is Travis 
Bell. He disappeared 30 years ago. It's no mistake he 
was murdered. Few people remember him, and nobody has 
said they were with him. It seems he got himself in some 
dangerous business. 

I will follow the murderous trail, no doubt a bottomless 
pit. I can't stop shaking, but I will put my life in line 
and find out.

I'll be contacting you again,

Johnny Gagnon

F: HALF A PERSON (Pigeon: Bianca)

Dear Emir,

Once there was a boy. The boy's mother didn't keep her 
promise. So the boy screamed, "Buy it, or I'll kill you, 
Mommy!" Because everyone knows liars, even if they're your 
own parents, deserve capital punishment. 

This is your last chance to pay up. 

My sources tell me that people go "missing" all the time in 
this town. Some dash off in the night. Entire families 
disappear. It's like a horror story. But the town has adapted. 
And with surprising alacrity, at that. "First Life" is a 
popular company. It's very competitive. It's not uncommon 
for people to quit. 

You'd be surprised by the turnover. First Life was 
established three years ago. Only half of the original 
employees remain. The other half are recruits and new 
graduates. All the disappearances have made the hiring of new 
arrivals common. 

There was another disappearance this week, at 201 Terry 
Street. I'll have to look into it. I'll cover the scoop 
in this town, and return to the assignment.

Update: I've learned of the circumstances surrounding her, 
but I still need more evidence.

I'll be contacting you again,

Johnny Gagnon

G: RUBBER RING (Pigeon: Xenia)

Dear Emir,

I tend to be a little stubborn. Even so, you'll probably 
forgive me. Of course you will, since you're the one who 
hasn't paid me! You'll pay for every last dollar one way 
or another, I assure you!

I'll crush your palpitating heart in the palm of my hand! 
I'll bend your wings backward!

Her name is Susie Sumner. She's a loose cannon with vicious 
criminal intent. She was apprehended under the national watch 
program, but killed several of the program directors. After 
requesting work from the Smith syndicate, she was eliminated. 

The boy's name is Kess Bloodysunday, and like his namesake, 
he was killed on Sunday. His criminal tendencies were such 
that even the Smith syndicate were reluctant to kill him 
at first. The boy was a remorseless killer. Born with 
murderous tendencies, and a latent talent to construct 
complex bombs. 
The informant's name is Yoon-Hyun. He's the owner of the 
Union Hotel Group. He met an untimely death at the Union 
Hotel in Philadelphia. Many celebrities were at the reception, 
but nevertheless, there were few witnesses to the murder, 
and many of the facts don't add up. Yet one thing is for 
sure: he was involved with the Smith syndicate. Rumor has 
it that an incident that happened at the hotel was swept 
conveniently under the rug. 

The Remnant Psyches surrounding the Smith syndicate have 
come together, and every last one of them is a hard-boiled 
criminal. Members of the Smith syndicate are no ordinary 
killers. They're superhuman monsters that consider psychos 
fair game. 

I will contact you just one more time.

Johnny Gagnon

H: CEMETRY [sic] GATES (Pigeon: Solitaire)

Dear Emir,

I'm preparing to leave my house. There are six bullets in 
my trusty gun. Their purpose is to put you out of your misery. 
I sincerely wish that each and every one of them nails you 
squarely between the eyes.

And now I'm off to kill you.

Surprised? I asked Master Harman. Asked him to kill you. 

Emir, Harman is right here with me. The maid is with us, 
too. We're all going on a little outing. A picnic with 
your name on it. This took all my resources. I bet you're 
at school now. Which means, you'll face the wrong end of my 
pistol in just moments. Wait for me in the principal's office. 
This is the code. [55549] 

The lock is secured with a double code. You'll need the 
second code to open the lock. Even I don't know that code. 
It's your job to find it.

Everything is ready. I'm delighted that I can finally meet 
you. Harman is laughing with me. Even the maid is laughing. 
What the?

What the hell are these guys doi. . . .

Master is waiting for you at the hotel. We will kill this 
man for you.
