Dan Smith (ダン・スミス, Dan Sumisu) is a character in the video game killer7. Known as "the Hellion" for his demonic behaviour in combat, he is one of the personae of the Smith Syndicate.


Dan was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. In 1973 following Harman Smith's defeat against Kun Lan in a game of chess, he and Curtis Blackburn established and reinforced control in Seattle as part of Harman's forfeit. Dan goes on to work alongside Blackburn as a member of the Seattle Self-Defense Department, where he is instructed by Blackburn in the field of assassination. Dan is later set up by Pedro Montana, who gives Blackburn the impression Dan has betrayed him, and in 1975 Dan is murdered by Blackburn during an encounter on a basketball court. Dan is resurrected and assimilated by Harman, and given a high-ranking spot in the Smith Syndicate, however the entire group is slain by Emir Parkreiner at Union Hotel. Before being shot to death, Dan manages to speak to Parkreiner at length. When Dan concludes his philosophical speech, he and Parkreiner draw their weapons, and after a brief standoff, Parkreiner shoots first, killing him. The Smith Syndicate personae are assimilated into Parkreiner, who himself becomes a member of the group when it re-emerges. When Dan returns, he does so with higher caliber bullets for his Colt .357 revolver.

During the "Encounter" chapter of killer7, the Smith Syndicate learns that Blackburn and Montana entered the organ trafficking trade, where they have secretly operated since 1987. The assassins tail Blackburn to his home, where Dan challenges Blackburn to a gun draw in a laboratory beneath the house. Blackburn fails to kill Dan this time and attempts to commit suicide, but Dan triggers a switch, activating a device formerly used on Blackburn's victims which empties and stuffs his body.

In the Smith Syndicate's next mission, Dan breaks into Trevor Pearlharbor's studio and confronts the madman, only to have him summon Handsome Black of The Handsome Men. Black fires at Dan, who dodges, and the shot connects with and kills Pearlharbor; Dan's retaliatory shot kills Black in turn. Handsome Red then appears, challenging the Smiths to a showdown against The Handsome Men at Broadway. In this skirmish, Dan succeeds in killing his opponent, Handsome Blue.

Dan is killed for the third, but not yet final time, by a Black Smile at Coburn Elementary School.

Appearance and personalityEdit

Dan wears a simple blue suit, likely a holdover to his days as a police officer. When at rest, he holds his revolver over his shoulder in a similar fashion to a small briefcase. Dan has a tattoo on his left shoulder, seen in a flashback to his death at the hands of Parkreiner. Dan is shown to be extremely nervy in even the most pressing of situations. He is also rather cocky, exclaiming "This is too easy!" when he connects a critical hit on Heaven Smiles. Dan hates Harman, shares an intense rivalry with Coyote Smith and is disliked by Con Smith.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Dan's weapon, a Taurus Model 44 chambered in a Colt .357 revolver, allots him powerful, standard firing power and a quick reload time. Additionally, his later weapon, the Demon Gun, upgrades his overall firepower. It features a staggered, 12-shot cylinder that fires alternately through two barrels.

Dan's main power is the Collateral Shot, known as the "Demon Shot" after being upgraded, an ability which allows him, at the cost of several vials of Thin Blood, to charge up several Demon Shells into a much more powerful slug. Dan gradually upgrades his revolver, culminating with the Demon Gun, which he obtains from the Archangel as a reward for surviving in ISZK Land, and can charge up to three shots at once. The Collateral Shot is the only weapon capable of destroying the more powerful varieties of Duplicator Smiles, and is also capable of destroying Mother Smiles with one hit to their cores.


Dan has 7 upgrades available to him, the most of any of the Smiths. He is the only persona to possess the TripleTap and Head Lock-On skills.

Official Website DescriptionEdit

Dan Smith

The Hellion - the 2nd personality.

The most aggressive personality with the
biggest attitude out of the 7.
He's dressed cool with a suit and tie. No
one will mistake him for a business man, at
least not with his big revolver he carries
all the time. There is hatred in his eyes.
Some even say that if you stare into his
eyes, you can see the devil.

The Hellion

Dan is an all-rounder. There's no situation he can't handle.
When in doubt, he's the man who can do the job.

Although his Magnum revolver only holds 6 bullets, he's able to reload his gun at
lightning speed which allows him to take on even close combat.
