Lieutenant Suzuki was a homicide detective in the Seattle Police Department, and Clive Babineaux's direct superior.

He was turned into a zombie by Blaine DeBeers and subsequently blackmailed into sabotaging any investigation into DeBeers' business at Meat Cute Charcuterie.

After Major Lilywhite destroyed the deli and killed most of the staff, Suzuki was desperate because his supply of human brain was cut off, and his reputation would be destroyed when his dealings came out. He shot himself in the leg and caused a stove to explode, killing himself; when the police showed up, they assumed he had taken out all the criminals. He was lauded as a hero, though Babineaux was not entirely convinced, and continued his investigation in secret.


  • Zombie Physiology: Zombies are mutated after being infected with a tainted batch of Utopium. The general bodily features - pale skin and hair, a lust for brains and only one heart beat per six seconds - has led to the infected to be referred to as "Zombies".[1]



  • Hunger for Brains: If Zombies do not eat brains, they become dumb, loses her humanity, and may die.[3] At a certain point, this state becomes inreversible, at which point a Zombie is said to be "Full Romero".[6]
  • Restricted Taste: Zombies lose most of their sense of taste, only being able to detect it when it was extra spicy. As such, zombies regularly spiked their food and drink with hot sauce.[3]

  • Hiro Kanagawa first appears as Babineaux's superior in the pilot, though he is unnamed in the credits and a nametag on his desk calls him "C. Abe". He also sports a goatee that the later Suzuki does not have.
