Sumio MondoSumio Timeline

If there is one character in the whole GHM (Grasshopper manufacture) universe that could be considered the main protagonist of the main GHM titles it would be Sumio.
Killer 7 is the only "Kill the Past" themed game that Sumio did not take part in.
Mainly because Killer 7 takes place in an alternate reality specifically designed for Killer 7.
(In the world of the Silver Case, internet is used constantly. Some characters even check their e-mails daily. Whereas in Killer 7 all trans communication is basically outlawed.

Sumio made his debut in Suda 51's spin off of "Twilight Syndrome",known as the "Moonlight Syndrome".
During his younger years (18 yrs. old in Moonlight Syndrome) Sumio went by Sumio Touba. Sumio's surname during the Silver Case (25 yrs. old) was Kodai.
Finally in FSR he became known as Sumio Mondo.
Sumio also makes an appearance as a "Searcher" (Sumio's FSR look.) in the sequel called "Silver Case 25 ward".
(He again resumes his identity as Sumio Kodai.)

I am not exactly sure why he has a different surname in every game that he appears in,but it is made certain that each Sumio is in fact the same person... or identity at least.
(The ending of FSR has me wondering if every Sumio we see is just a shell with a ghost inside.)
Nevertheless Suda51 devised an official timeline for Sumio Mondo so I guess that's some proof that each Sumio that you play as is the same person in every game that he appears in.

NOTE: Sumio Mondo's birthday is 1113. Although in the original version of FSR, his birthdate was any number that you Jacked in when asked for your birth date.

-------- This is mainly just a log of official cases that the detectives of ward 24 previously worked on.
