The killer7, also known as the Smith Syndicate or Harman Alliance, is an assassin organization in the video game killer7 who collectively comprise the main cast of playable characters and associated members who assist the player.
- Travis Bell
- Vincel Dill Boris VII Iwazaruscof
- Kess BloodySunday
- Samantha Sitbon
- Susie Summer
The original killer7 were recruited from the ranks of the Union 7 political group by Harman Smith, who revived them after their murders in exchange for membership in his organization. They quickly became the most famous and skilled assassins association in the United States, and received a large number of government contracts as a result. However, this career came to an end when Emir Parkreiner murdered all six members in the "Bloody Heartland" incident at the Hotel Union in Pennsylvania, after which he absorbed their personae (and that of Harman) into himself and took on the identity of Garcian Smith.
Following this, the "new" killer7 returned to the government to resume their relationship, albeit one in which Emir failed to realise he was in fact now the entire syndicate. One of the organization's first jobs at this point was to kill Travis Bell, who subsequently joined the killer7 as an informant, as did another target (Susie Summer), a duo Garcian hired to take care of Master Harman (Iwazaru and Samantha), and the man who sold out the original killer7 to Parkreiner (Yoon-Hyun). The group continues to loyally work for the government for an indeterminate amount of time, likely years. Garcian establishes a relationship with Christopher Mills, his liaison with the government, working out a system of subtle communication via coded messages left on his answering machine, as well as a typical rendezvous point, the Seattle overpass.
When the Heaven Smile crisis breaks, the organization is assigned a number of counter-terrorism operations, first to investigate the cause of the problem, through which they learn that Harman Smith's rival and nemesis, Kun Lan, is behind the attacks. They are then sent to assassinate a foreign spy, Toru Fukushima, as well as a rival assassin, Jean DePaul, and end up learning more about the increasingly tenuous Japan-US relations in the process. They are then sent to take down a related terrorist, Andrei Ulmeyda, who blows up an American football stadium in Texas. Following this, they are assigned a mission to stop an organ-trafficking program run by Pedro Montana and Dan's old partner Curtis Blackburn, and end up pursuing Blackburn to his personal residence in order to kill him. Yet another dangerous rival assassin group appears, this one called the Handsome Men; the killer7 travel to the Dominican Republic to take down their apparent leader, Trevor Pearlharbor, and end up squaring off with them in Broadway, New York.
Finally, Garcian goes rogue, and takes the group to investigate his past at Coburn Elementary School. In the course of the events there, the personae of the original six assassins are destroyed, and shortly thereafter Garcian travels to the roof of the Hotel Union, where Parkreiner's persona reasserts itself, effectively ending the Smith Syndicate.
