Name[edit | edit source]
The official Japanese name for this kaijin is Telegraph Human Sudo (電送人間 須藤, Densō Ningen Sudō) though he is only called Sudo (須藤 or his alias Goro Nakamoto Sudō) (中本伍郎 within the film itself. The English name Telegian comes from Nakamoto Gorō)Toho's international English title for the film, The Secret of the Telegian, and is likely derived from the word "telegraph."
Origins[edit | edit source]
During World War II, Sudo dutifully served in the Japanese military as a lance corporal. On the night of Japan's surrender, Sudo and four other soldiers were ordered to escort military scientist Dr. Nikki and his research to a cave. However, the other four soldiers were transporting smuggled gold rather than Nikki's research materials, and when Sudo confronted them about this he was stabbed with a bayonet and shot repeatedly. The traitorous soldiers fled and set off dynamite to bury both Sudo and Nikki in the cave, assuming they killed them both, but the two men survived. Sudo took the alias Goro Nakamoto and relocated with Nikki to a farmhouse in Karuizawa, Nagano, working as Niki's assistant to complete his teleportation device. Unbeknownst to Nikki, Sudo intended to use the device to hunt down and kill each of the four soldiers who betrayed him years before.
