Note: Back in 2001/2002. G Para asked Suda 51 if his games share the same universe, because they've noticed that several characters such as Sumio & Yayoi have made an appearance in more than one game. Suda 51 officially declared that Moonlight Syndrome, Silver Case & " Flower, Sun, & Rain" are indeed interconnected with one another & are part of the same universe. The only game that he has flat out denied any relation to in his multiverse is the story mode in Fire Pro Wrestling Special.
Source:http://www.gpara.com/special/soft/fsr/suda_answer27.htm Think of incidents in your life that you wished never occurred.
Wouldn't you wish to erase that past from your memory?
If we assume that the past is detested, if you kill the past it would cease to exist.
Kill the Past revolves around stories chronicling around individuals who are in conflict with their pasts & the consequences that occur due to them killing the past. (Emir's Killer 7 facade being one such example.)
The Kill the Past stories often take place in the same universe/world, but from different points of perspective.
(Silver Case = detectives & reporter, Moonlight Syndrome= school girls, drop out, Killer 7= Hitman. No More Heroes= Otaku hitman.)
Kill the Past refers to one who dwells on or erases a traumatic event from their past. Many of these individuals who can manage to maintain their self-consciousness. Do so only through repetition of a set of events that reflect or mirror their past. In many cases that past (The past that you wish to kill, or erase from your memory.) must be faced/confronted head on in order for that past incident to be settled.
You must kill the past (traumatic events that you need to quell in order to move on with your life.) in order to live for the future.
In Suda 51's own words, "Kill the Past" means that I fight for the future. Which is one of the reasons that Suda 51 rarely ever does any direct sequels. He prefers to move onward with new IP, rather than dwell in the past.
K7 SIN's interpretation:
Kill the Past is some what of an ongoing series of games that all take place in the same universe.
Most of which usually expand upon the setting that was created in the Silver Case. (The main setting.) Note: The origins of the Kill the Past setting actually originated from the Twilight Syndrome side story, Moonlight Syndrome.
They are what one might call the Video game equivalent of the Hannibal Lecter novels or the El Maricahi/Mexico trilogy.
In the sense that most of the games aren't exactly direct sequels, but they all at least employ some basic themes & characters that carry over from game to game in order to compose a Kill the Past plot.
One thing that they all have in common is a protagonist who is in conflict with their past.
You won't be able to understand the story in it's entirety. Mainly because each game usually adds a new layer to the plot, & concludes a chapter or story arc from a previous game. For example: Moonlight Syndrome ended with a cliffhanger ending.
Ending Credits Final http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDwVMvqpOg4
Ryo Kazan is seen running & walking across a valley.
He eventually runs into Mika Kishi. (She's supposed to be dead, but I'll get into that shortly.)
The two of them hug each other affectionately.
After the credits roll.
We are taken back into Ryo's room.
Rumi is shocked to see Ryo laying there lifeless.
Ryo is clutching on to a paper bag containing the severed head of his sister Kyoko Kazan.
Rumi looks at the tv screen & sees Mika Kishi trapped inside.
Moonlight Syndrome never actually tells you why Mika Kishi is stuck inside the tv.
(In fact the MS ending is the only time in the game that the tv ever gets focused on.) The only hints that we have to go on are
1. Mika was present during the ending credits. She hugs Ryo Kazan. 2. We later see Ryo lying around dead or unconscious sitting in front of a tv & still holding on to Kyoko's head contained inside a brown bag.
(The brown bags in Killer 7 are supposedly the heads of the Smith Syndicate.) 3. You can clearly see Mika Kishi tapped inside Ryo's tv.
This cliffhanger from Moonlight Syndrome finally gets answered 8 yrs. later (2005. Moonlight Syndrome was originally released in 1997.)
with the release of Killer 7.
Emir Parkreiner from Killer 7, who uses the tv as a medium in order to "channel" in the Smith syndicate is actually a conclusion to the ending of Moonlight Syndrome. I'll elaborate more on that later...
Silver Case concluded what happened to Ryo Kazan & Rumi Touba after Moonlight Syndrome.
----- Silver Case シルバー事件 Lunatics Kill the Past part 1
In Silver Case, at Jan. 29, 1999 a quarter to midnight.
(SC actually begins during the same duration of time that Moonlight Syndrome ended.)
Ryo Kazan goes apeshit insane & went on a killing spree. One of his attempted targets was Tetsuguro Kusabi.
Later on in SC, Tetsuguro shoots Ryo about 5 times.
However the final shot actually came from Rumi Touba. (The woman who went to check up on Ryo during Moonlight Syndrome's ending.)
Rumi is later killed by Tetsuguro, because she failed to comply with his orders.
Finally, Killer 7 shows to you the final conclusion to Moonlight Syndrome
The meaning behind the tv & what actually happened to Mika Kishi.
In Killer 7 we later find out that
The Smith Syndicate are all dead, & we actually transmigrate their souls into Emir through the use of the tv as a medium.
Through the course of the game mechanics of Killer 7. We are indirectly explained how Mika was able to hug Ryo during the credits.
She was actually a corporeal spirit, who may have been using Rumi's body as a host.
Just like how the Killer 7 utilize Emir's body as the main host in order to exist in the physical plane.
So in effect it's not that K7 is referencing Moonlight Syndrome.
Killer 7 is actually closing the final chapter in the Moonlight Syndrome game.
(The only remaining loose thread from Moonlight Syndrome is Yayoi Itsushima/Hanayama herself.)
The plots for the Kill the Past games are like a water current.
Every game fills in more & more details about the setting of the Silver Case, but no matter what the story keeps on moving forward.
It doesn't have an end.
Basically it's like real life.
The setting of Silver Case/Killer 7 is loosely based off of our perception of the world.
We don't know all the answers to life, death & spirituality.
If one of us does, than good for them. I suppose that you could label them as some kind of god.(Note: that was sarcasm..)
Why should we be able to piece together all the "logic" in Killer 7/Silver Case,
If we don't even know all the answers to similar "spiritual" topics in our real life?
As such, the spiritual & celestial themes of beings who exist on a higher vibration pattern may allude us all, but that's alright.
It's more about the world of the Kill the Past setting than the actual characters in it.
Every single character in the Kill the Past setting is expendable once their story arc is completed.
EXAMPLE: Ryo Kazan, Rumi Touba, Emir Parkreiner, Mika Kishi, Chizuru Hachisuka, Naketagawa, Morikawa, Shinji, Killer 7, Yukari Hasegawa, etc.
Note: The game Killer 7 is loosely connected to Kill the Past, & it even had the Kill the Past subtitle included in the Hand in Killer 7 guidebook.
However the setting for Killer 7 does not coincide with the setting used in the Silver Case.
The setting used in Killer 7 depicts a world where all trans communications are outlawed.
Our planet has been united under a one world banner as the united nations. (Not the same united nations as real life.)
Basically the setting of K7 seems to be satiring what could happen in real life if we were to get way too carried away to abolish the threat of "terrorism"
Silver Case's timeline can't co exist with Killer 7, because individuals in SC still communicate to each other through internet, cell phones, & other modes of trans communication.
Silver Case takes place in the present whenever the game was made.
The first Silver Case game was set in 1999, the Silver Case 25 Ward took place in 2006. (I think.)
Flower, Sun, & Rain was set in 2001.
In my opinion. I believe that the setting used in Killer 7 was meant to be a spin off, or what I like to call,
The alternate reality Capcom timeline of the Kill the Past setting.
Did, didja get, get get all that!? Hmm, me neither.
I never understand what the hell the writer of K7 SIN is ever talking about.
What is the chronology of Kill the PAST?
The time line goes like this
Moonlight Syndrome: 1999, January http://killer7.3dactionplanet.gamespy.com/moonlight.html
This game marks the beginning of the Kill the Past universe. This game can be best described as a Japanese psycho horror love story drama that masquerades as a game. MS's story centered around a girl named Mika Kishi.
She was supposed to die when she was kidnapped by a stalker/rapist.
However her life expectancy was actually extended when a silver haired kid presented Ryo Kazan (A friend of Mika's.) an ultimatum or a contract that would extend Mika's life & ensure her safety.
Ryo consented to the contract, because Mika reminds him of his dead sister.
(Mika was the only other person whom Ryo was close with.)
However the contract is automatically nullified once Ryo or Mika make physical contact with each other.
(In other words. Ryo is forbidden to get intimate with Mika & vice versa.)
Moonlight Syndrome actually shows you the origins of the blinking moon that was shown before targets/stages in Killer 7. Long story short: The phases of the moon reflect the sanity of those who are affected by the enchanting light of the moon. Click here for a more detailed explanation.
Think of Moonlight Syndrome in the same way that would think of Koudelka in the Shadow Hearts series, Marathon of Halo, or Shin Megami Tensei IF of Persona.
As a side game that originated the majority of the core aspects & thematic themes that were later utilized to give breed an entirely new franchise, yet it is not actually recognized as part of the main canon.
(Although one could easily connect the games together if one were inclined to.)
Note: Moonlight Syndrome is actually a side story in the Twilight Syndrome series of games.
Moonlight SYndrome itself could be considered somewhat of a prequel to Silver Case.
In fact Ryo Kazan & Rumi Touba are actually the first "criminals" you run into in the original Silver Case game.
Silver Case: 1999 (Begins during Jan. 29 & ends at 2000.) http://killer7.3dactionplanet.gamespy.com/silver/index.htm
This is the Persona 2 Innocent Sin of the Kill the past universe.
As this is the game that establishes what is canon & what is not in the Kill the past multiverse.
Basically this the game that people reference whenever we want to check up on information that's integral to the rest of the series.
(Much like Silent Hill 2.)
With Silver Case, we indirectly learn that the story of Moonlight Syndrome was actually an isolated incident that was in effect part of a larger overarching story. That bigger story would in fact be the "Silver Case"
Suda 51 actually decided to kill off the two remaining survivors from Moonlight Syndrome. Before moving on with the more complex plot of Silver Case.
In a way. You could say that Suda 51 is actually killing the past in order to move forward with an entirely different set of characters. While at the same time expanding upon the same setting & the core ideas that originally begun in Moonlight Syndrome.
I believe that the Silver Case games are actually the main plot of the Kill the Past universe.
Mainly because Silver Case does not revolve around one person.
(EX. NMH= Travis Touchdown, K7= Emir Parkreiner, FSR= Sumio Kodai)
Rather Silver Case is more like a collection of stories that develop & evolve the setting & themes that were originally portrayed in Moonlight Syndrome.
Note: I believe that the two Moonlight Syndrome survivors were killed off, because Ryo Kazan is just a high school drop out & Rumi Touba is a mere school girl.
It wouldn't make any sense for the two of them to under go the same trials & tribulations that the cast of Silver Case face. Mainly because the cast of Moonlight Syndrome are mere civilians. Who have zero access to the same type of information & connections that are readily accessible to the cast of Silver Case.
There is one other survivor from Moonlight Syndrome. Her name is Yayoi Itsushima. However she does not count as a survivor, because she was in an alliance with Mitra. (The silver haired kid.) In other words, she was allied with the antagonist.
Yayoi actually served as the Harman Smith/Toriko Kusabi like character who's main purpose in the game is to be mysterious & nearly impossible to explain or rationalize.
Flower, Sun, & Rain: 2001 http://killer7.3dactionplanet.gamespy.com/hotelfsr/index.html
This game happens two yrs. after Silver Case & is a direct continuation of Sumio's story.
This game is a sidequel. In the sense that it's not an actual sequel to the Silver Case, but it does establish enough connections to the Silver Case.
That you can classify this title as an official follow up to the Silver Case.
It pretty much ties up several loose ends from the Silver Case yet at the same time opening an entirely new set of questions to the gamer.
The core conflict of FSR is determining where & who the terrorists are, and how to diffuse the airplane bombs in time.
Of course the plot isn't as simple as it sounds. What exactly is Lospass resort? Why does time refuse to move forward? Most of all, who is Sumio?
In FSR we finally get to see Toriko Kusabi & Sundance Shot for the first time.
Note: Sundance only appeared in the intro for Silver Case.
Both Sundance & Toriko are only mentioned or referred to in the first Silver Case game, but they don't actually appear in game until FSR.
Although it's debatable with Toriko.
Whether or not her first in game appearance is in FSR or SC 25 Ward.
Considering that she was more of a celestial entity in FSR.
By the way one of the guests at FSR is an alluring woman named Yayoi Hanayama.
If you paid attention earlier. Then you already know that I suspect that Yayoi Hanayama & Yayoi Itsushima are one in the same.
Flower, Sun, & Rain being mentioned in Silver Case.
Silver Case 25 Ward:
The latest chapter in the Kill the Past universe.
Actually this game starts an entirely new arc called Kill the Life.
Which would than imply that Killer 7 is actually the final chapter of "Kill the past".
It would make some sense in my opinion. As it is the game Killer 7 that finally gave us enough clues to decipher the meaning of what happened to Mika Kishi during the ending in Moonlight Syndrome.
(Moonlight Syndrome is the origin of Kill the Past. In case that you needed to be reminded.)
I don't know much about this game other than the fact that it takes place after the events of FSR.
Yoshimitsu Koshimizu, Sumio & Toriko Kusabi from FSR return in SC 25 Ward.
Sakura Natsume from the original Silver Case is now one of the leading characters.
Tetsugoro Kusabi is not in the SC 25 Ward game at all, because he's currently conducting a case in the United States.
(At least that's what Sumio says in the Transmitter mission.)
I think Sundance Shot comes back as well, but I'm not sure if that actually is him. Or if it's just somebody who looks similar to him.
(Sundance was arrested & detained by Yoshimitsu Koshimizu & Remy Fauzlie at the end of FSR.)
Killer 7: Not officially part of the Kill the Past universe.
(Although for some reason Killer 7 still has the "Kill the Past" label in the Hand in Killer 7 guidebook.
Moonlight Syndrome took place in the same world that we live in.
(As does FSR & SC.)
K7 has an alternate time line where we live in a one world united government. Where all trans communications have been outlawed.
Originally Sundance Shot was supposed to be a bigger role in Killer 7, but for some reason he was dropped from the game.
My guess is that Sundance would've overshadowed the rest of the K7 cast a lil' too much.
Since he's a far more developed character than the rest of the K7.
If you played the first Silver Case, you'll notice that the mission themes are almost exactly the same as K7's.
The opening mission is irrelevant to the story.
The first mission is the main plot.
The second mission builds up on the main plot.
The third mission is centraled on one character. Note: In SC, the 3rd level connected Moonlight Syndrome to Silver Case, & the level revolved around Sumio, & his designs to commit a terrorist act against a city that wronged him & his friends as a kid.
In K7. The 3rd level (Not including Target: angel)
revolved around Dan Smith.
Much of Dan Smith's level seems to be based off of the concept of the Shelter Children from Silver Case.
Both the Shelter Children policy & Curtis Blackburn's black market female organs are actually sanctioned by the government.
The 4rth mission is about how the media portrays crime & how the information is spread.
Note: In SC we learn more about a couple of rouge underground websites that spread word & knowledge of Uehara Kamui (GOD)
Which in turn creates several copy cat cases of individuals who claim to be Kamui (GOD)
In K7 we learn more about how propaganda is spread through the modern media.
One such example is through a comic book called "The Handsome Men".
The 5th mission is the level where everything goes to hell. People get killed & everybody is fucked.
Except in K7's case, we find out that half of them already died a couple decades ago.
Whereas in SC we actually see the political fallout unfold as everybody sides with their political stance & kill off the rest of opposition.
In SC the only ones still standing by the end of the game.
Are the people who didn't choose a side/political agenda at all.
(Sakura Natsuma, Tetsugoro Kusabi, Sumio Kodai, & Tokio Morishima.)
Silver Case also had an entirely different section of the game.
Called the Placebo reports where you play as ex reporter Tokio Morishima.
As he learns more about Uehara Kamui, & the conspiracy of the Silver Case scandal.
In K7 this part of the game would've been the Jaco Checkbox reports, but obviously that part of the game didn't make into the final version at all.
How the games connect to each other.
The criminal who Tetsuguro kills during the prelude of Silver Case was actually Ryo Kazan from the Moonlight Syndrome.
During the ending of Moonlight Syndrome Ryo Kazan was last seen
sitting dead in front of a tv.
Holding a bloody bag in his hand. (Inside is the head of his dead sister, Kyoko Kazan.)
An image of Ryo Kazan's could've, would've, should've been girl friend Mika Kishi can be seen trapped inside the t.v that he was sitting dead next to.
As we start the Silver Case, Tetsuguro is shot at by Ryo Kazan.
(The full moon faze that we saw from Killer 7 starts flickering in the Silver Case. Full moons typically indicate full blown insanity.)
Ryo is than cornered to the cauliflower factory & goes on a murder spree.
By the end of Silver Case's prelude Ryo Kazan is thought to have been shot dead by Tetsuguro Kusabi. (Who fired at least 6 slugs into Ryo.)
It is actually Rumi Touba who kills off Ryo for good, but she is later shot in between the eyes by Tetesuguro Kusabi.
During the last half of FSR the game gets less tropical & starts to look & feel more somber & eerie like the Silver Case.
(To the point where FSR will even use the silver case remixes as bgm.)
Killer 7 borrows heavily from the Silver Case.
Harman Smith would be the Silver eye phenomenon.
Kun Lan might possibly be inspired by Uehara Kamui
Curtis Blackburn's black market organs are the Shelter children program.
Heaven's Smile are reminiscent to those who commit suicide during the night of a Moonlight Syndrome..
Iwazaru,Kikazaru & Mizaru are Sumio,Fyuki, & Hiseki (Speak no evil, See no evil, Hear no Evil
Garcian Smith is a combination of the above.
Ed Macalister, who makes a cameo in Killer 7.
Makes a subtle reference at Garcian possibly being a stock body of Sumio Mondo.
"I remember all the faces of our guests. Including your bag sir."
Bag refers to Garcian's weapon case.
Ed Macalister is actually alluding to Sumio's briefcase, Katharine.
(Which coincidentally is the same name as EMIR'S MOTHER.)
No More Heroes doesn't relate much to the other games, but the connections that it does have tend to be pretty majour ones.
1. Sylvia is sporting a bikini with the FSR logo In one of the Japanese No More Heroes ads.
2. The FSR plane can be seen in the back ground.
3. Emir Parkreiner tries to kill Travis Touchdown in order to attain Rank #1 assassin.
There's much controversy around the internet over the identity of the African man during the true ending of No More Heroes.
I can't see why though. Considering that the Killer 7 were actually killed off in their own fucking game.
If you played through enough Suda 51 games you tend to see a pattern where the main character of a former Suda 51 title. Will make a return in a newer Suda 51 game only to bite the bullet within that same appearance.
I've already showed you an example earlier of two characters from Moonlight Syndrome who die during the first chapter of Silver Case. (One of them being a main character no less.) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3ba_sAneAM
So if you view that video that I just linked to, and you still can't accept that Emir is the same guy in NMH.
Than believe me, you've got problems, part-nah.
I believe that actually is Emir.
Suda 51 did claim that there would be a special appearance of a character who we would all recognize.
(By all, I think he meant everybody not just Japanese fans. So the cameo would have to be from Killer 7.)
As far as I know, Emir is the only Killer 7 character to appear in NMH.
I've already shown the progression of Sundance Shot & Sumio in the games that they appeared in.
I feel that the evidence of Sundance Shot & Sumio's
many appearances throughout the different Suda 51 titles would be more than enough to prove that the guy who tries to kill Travis is Emir. http://killer7.6.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=803&start=18 http://killer7.6.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=803&start=25 Note: HIK 7 never explicitly tells you that the one eyed man is Sundance Shot, but it's obvious that he is supposed to be Sundance, because he's the only Victorian looking man in the entire GHM universe.
Much like how Emir is the only African Indian man in the GHM universe.
(To put it bluntly. The only Black man who has played a majour role in one of Suda's games.)
In my opinion, I don't understand why only Sumio, & Sundance can pop in randomly in other games, but Emir can't
(Ryo Kazan from Moonlight Syndrome actually makes an appearance in Silver Case, but he gets his ass killed in the very first mission, LOL!
One of the main characters from Twilight Syndrome appears in Moonlight Syndrome just to get killed off near the end of the game like Emir Parkreiner did in NMH.)
For every counterpoint that people may make about that guy not being Emir. I could probably come up with several more to prove that he is Emir. Emir in NMH is dressed like a Japanese Yanki. A yanki is a japanese hoodlum.
His slouchy posture & the way he holds his weapon is also similar to a Japanese yankii.
Check out this online game made by Square Enix. http://www.yantama.jp/
They look like the type of people that Emir was emulating in NMH.
We have to remember that Emir Parkreiner is a Black man who was employed as an assassin for the Japanese government.
Emir is an individual who has been so ingrained with Japanese culture (Through Coburn Elementary.)
that Emir also has adopted many Japanese mannerisms.
(Such as kneeling, & bowing whenever he greets someone important. Emir's bushido like samurai conduct, etc.)
What's to stop Emir from also incorporating japanese hood culture into his style?
(Coyote Smith himself, already dresses & wears his hair like a Japanese hoodlum. Which is why most Japanese fan art depicts Coyote as some yankii. Plus it's also been said that Coyote speaks Kansai-ben.)
I fear that this will be a never ending battle for moi in the near future.
As this seems to be the kind of thing that will only be resolved if Suda 51 himself say's that he's Emir Parkreiner.
Which is something that I don't foresee Suda doing anytime soon, because that's not his style.
Suda is very similar to David Lynch, they both want their audiences to constantly bicker over little details.
That way people like Lynch & Suda can keep firm control of their own property, because only they know how the true story is supposed to unfold.
Silver Case Kill the Past
Note: The SIlver Case incident that the game is named after occurred 20 yrs. before the game started.
Sumio confronts his past in The Silver Case.
Sumio & his child hood friends enact their revenge on a ceo.
(The Ceo used his own daughter as a scapegoat. His daughter was raped & killed by an angry mob of people known as the "Parade".)
Sumio indirectly forced the Ceo of Mikumo to blow up the entire city.
(His childhood friends both committed suicide.
One hung himself after blowing up a Yukimo mansion & everybody inside it.
Sumio's other friend suicide bombed himself while jumping through a tower, killing everybody inside.)
Sumio is then relieved of duty & kicked out of the Felonious Ward 24 police. The 2nd division is disbanded after that,because Tetsugoro Kusabi was the only other member of the 2nd division.
Tetsugoro Kusabi corrects the past in The Silver Case.
Kusabi never actually apprehended the criminal who committed the
"Silver Case" the true culprit behind the murders died during a shoot out at a political meeting high up in a tv tower.
The assassin in question was hired by the FSO political environmental safety faction that were led by Sundance. After the "Silver Case" incident the FSO party were regarded as nothing more than a group of organized gangsters. They dissolved after losing what political prowess they had left & the leader, Sundance Shot was nowhere to be found.
Flower, Sun, & Rain Kill the Past
Refers to both Tokio Morishima & Sumio Mondo.
Tokio Morishima returned to Lospass resort soon after he was handed the notebook containing all the classified information about the "Silver Case"
Sumio Mondo is taught the truth about Lospass from Morishima.
(Sumio protected Tokio Morishima during one of the cases in The Silver Case.)
Sumio had to forget the past in order to relive in the present.
Sumio Mondo is nothing more than an alias that Sumio Kodai went by. He went by the name Mondo for so long that he eventually forgot that Kodai is his original identity.
Sumio Kodai finally returned to reality when he saw a familiar face. The face of Tetsuguro Kusabi. Note: For the duration of FSR. Tetsuguro Kusabi was masquerading as a heavy set man named Peter Bocchwinkur.
Tetsuguro Kusabi eventually took off his Peter Bocchwinkur mask when it got too hot for him to wear the Peter Bochwinkur muppet suit.
Killer 7 Kill the Past
is the exact opposite of Flower, Sun, & Rain.
Whereas FSR's atmosphere masqueraded as serene & soothing it slowly descended into a bedlam of conspiracy that originated between the Hachisuka family & Sundance Shot. Killer 7 by contrast is purely chaotic through out the whole game. ( K7 is obviously influenced by the Moonlight Syndrome. As is implied when you see that every level begun with an image of a blinking full moon.)
Unlike Sumio Mondo who needed to relinquish the past,
Garcian had to reclaim his past as a cold blooded Killer in order to relive his life for the future & the present.
No More Heroes Kill the Past
Travis Touchdown has repressed memories of his parents being slain by a female assassin.
It turns out that female assassin is actually his half-sister.
Travis's father abandoned that female assassin's mother to run off with Travis's mother.
It broke the female assassin's mother's heart beyond repair.
So she (the mother) killed herself.
Travis's father took advantage of the female assassin, and molested her daily.
Travis's father made her his slave.
She eventually decided to become a killer. With no money to pay for training, She paid with her body.
To Travis Touchdown, his father appeared to be a hard-working family man. That was all an act. So that female assassin decided to clean it up herself.
This is why she killed Travis Touchdown's father in front of his very eyes...
That female assassin is Sylvia Christel's sister, Jeane Christel.
Note: The plot of No More Heroes is supposed to be satire poking fun of gaming narratives. So if you felt that all the characters being related to each other was a bit inexcusable. Worry not, because NMH isn't meant to be taken seriously.
