Linda Vermillion is a character in killer7. She is Garcian Smith's second controller, after she is forced to kill his previous contact, Christopher Mills, because he has learned too much. She does this by sniper rifle, shooting him in the forehead through the window of his Japanese-manufactured car, just as he tries to reveal the secret of Harman Smith and the Hotel Union. She approaches Garcian face-to-face at the beginning of the next mission, offering an explanation involving the life of assassins and their role in the machinations of the government, then relaying instructions for his next assignment. She continues to perform this function up until the events at Coburn Elementary School, after which Garcian begins to operate independently.
