"Keiji could hack through a system like this in his sleep. And I'm better."

Kasumi is the Galaxy's most experienced and proficient thief. She is a master of stealth and employees a wide variety of unique abilities. Kasumi is also a technical genius.


[edit] Background

While on a job to steal a particularly valuable painting, Kasumi ran in to another thief, Keiji Okuda, whom had already taken the painting. She tackled the other thief, taking the painting from his possession. Afterwards, Kasumi and Keiji became partners, and eventually began a relationship. She claims that they "never did return the painting."

Keiji previously worked for the Alliance Intelligence Agency. Due to the nature of his work, he had a graybox implanted into himself. This allowed him to relieve each memory. During one mission, he acquired information that could cause serious harm to befall the Alliance if it was ever made public. Following this incident, Keiji was prosecuted due to his work involving the buying and selling of classified information. However, the prosecuting attorneys were forbidden from accessing Keiji's graybox due to Alliance laws based around the Fifth Amendment of U.S. Constitution. Following the trial, Keiji disappeared and was eventually hunted down my Donovan Hock. Keiji was murdered by Hock, who proceeded to steal the graybox. Hock was unsuccessful in cracking the graybox.

After learning of Keiji's death, Kasumi swore to exact revenge upon Hock. She eventually made a deal with Cerberus to join Shepard's team in exchange for aid in killing Hock.

[edit] Dossier


Kasumi is found awaiting Shepard's arrival at the Zakera Ward's docking station. She talks with Shepard through a hacked terminal. After speaking with Shepard, Kasumi cloaks and heads towards the Normandy.

She has a crush on Jacob, wondering if he likes "Japanese girls with a penchant for kleptomania."

Before meeting Keiji, Kasumi used a red rose as her calling card. She would leave a single rose in place of whatever she took. She claims that Keiji showed her "how silly it was."

The Illusive Man sends Shepard the following email in regards to Kasumi's recruitment:

From: Illusive Man


At great cost and effort, we have tracked down the master thief Kasumi Goto and convinced her to work with you. Very few people have ever heard of her, and fewer can claim to have seen her in person. She is unequaled at stealth and infiltration, and her skills will prove invaluable to your mission.

Travel to the Zakera Ward on the Citadel. There you will find a special ad terminal that differs from the usual. Input the password "Silence is golden" to begin to rendezvous.
