In order to keep his true identity a secret, he now goes under the alias Conan Edogawa (江戸川 コナン Edogawa Konan?) and pretends to be a real child to throw off suspicion while he secretly solves many cases and looks for clues about the organization. He fears the organization will come back and kill him and everyone he knows if it is discovered that he isn't really dead. He also has always had a crush on his childhood friend, Rachel Moore who he is openly in love with but cannot reveal his feelings to in his current condition. Before he was shrunk, Jimmy was a popular detective, a great soccer player, and was sometimes a bit full of himself before he became "Conan".

Black Organization Edit

Main article: Black Organization (Case Closed) [edit]Main Members [edit]Gin Main article: Gin (Case Closed) Gin (ジン Gin?), known in the localized manga as Melkior but is later refered to as Gin, is one of the top-ranked members in the BO, as well as the person who gave the APTX 4869 poison to Jimmy. He is extremely cold-blooded and one of the most menacingly-drawn villains. He is also extremely perceptive, and as such it would be extremely difficult to catch him. His seiyū is Yukitoshi Hori and his English voice actor is Troy Baker. He was portrayed by Sasaki Kuranosuke in the live drama. [edit]

Vodka Main article: Vodka (Case Closed) Vodka (ウォッカ Vodka?) is a member of the BO, who is usually seen alongside Gin, whom he refers to as aniki ("older brother"). Unlike Gin, Vodka is very slow and easy to trick and, as such, would have been caught many times if he didn't stay with Gin so often.

He was portrayed by Taro Okada in the live drama. [edit]

Vermouth Main article: Sharon Vineyard Vermouth is an important member of the Black Organization. Her true identity is Sharon Vineyard, a famous American actress who mastered the skill of disguise alongside her friend Yukiko (Vivian) Kudo, Jimmy's mother. They were both tutored through an acting class by the world famous magician, Toichi Kuroba, (who was secretly the original Kaitou Kid and who was later killed by an underground organization, though it has not been confirmed in the series to have been the B.O.). Vermouth is the Boss's favorite member of the organization, and she is shrouded with mystery. The cold-blooded part of her personality doesn't hesitate to carry out the B.O.'s top orders in the forms of murders and so forth, without the slightest bit of remorse. However, she shows affection for both Shinichi (Jimmy) and Ran (Rachel) after they unknowingly save her life as she is disguised as a male serial killer in New York. She eventually realizes who Conan must really be later in the series, and supports him in a way, by protecting him and keeping his true identity hidden from the other B.O. members. She believes that if anyone is capable of bringing down the Black Organization, Conan/Jimmy is that "silver bullet". She also does not seem to ever age, or ages extremely slowly. It is still a mystery as to why this is. She even goes to such lengths as to say she has a "daughter" named Chris Vineyard and she disguises herself as both "Sharon" and "Chris." She is questioned about her agelessness by Jodie Starling, who has a personal vendetta against her. Jodie remembered that Vermouth killed her father, who was also an FBI agent, when she was just a little girl. Vermouth never gives her a straight answer. "Sharon" later supposedly dies, while "Chris" looks on at the funeral. Vermouth's famous line is "A secret makes a woman, a woman." Her seiyū is Mami Koyama. [edit]

[1] She wears a jumpsuit and dark lipstick, and has a dark tattoo resembling a butterfly's wing on her left eye.[1] In the anime, she speaks with a distinct accent, and unlike the other members (aside from her partner), she rarely smiles. However, she appears to have some sense of ironic humor, as proven in the beginning of episode 425 when she and Korn are practicing sniping and he misses.[1] Her weapon of choice is a Heckler & Koch PSG1 sniper rifle, and she drives a blue and white Viper.[1] Recently, she participated in a mission in bringing back Kir, which succeeded thanks to Gin.

[edit]Tokyo Metropolitan Police [edit]Inspector Joseph Megure Inspector Joseph Megure (JA, KO, ZH) known in Japan as Inspector Juzo Megure (目暮十三警部 Megure Jūzō-keibu?), is a veteran police officer who has been working with Jimmy Kudo, Booker Kudo and Richard Moore. In fact, Richard used to work under him 10 years ago. He always wears his hat to hide an old scar which reminds him of a special case from 20 years ago, during his early police days which involved his then-future wife Midori. That time he was still a new police officer in charge of protecting Midori who planned to lure out a culprit who uses his car to run over high school girls with long skirts.

Her seiyū is Atsuko Yuya. Tough, energetic, and a dedicated police officer that her "dates" tend to turn into police investigations, but she also can be quite lively and cheerful. Sato is hugely popular with the male members of the police department, but to their chagrin she, albeit hesitantly, begins to develop feelings for her colleague Takagi. A running joke in the series is that their relationship never progresses because of interruptions by the rest of the police force. However, in chapter 673, she kissed Takagi when he was hospitalized, after Conan and the Detective Boys warded off Megure and some others who were about to enter. She has come to value Conan's aid in several tough cases and trusts his judgment implicitly. She can tell he is no ordinary boy, and accepts him as a member of the police. [edit]Harry Wilder Harry Wilder, known in Japan as Wataru Takagi (高木 渉 Takagi Wataru?), is an officer who works with Meguire and has feelings for his fellow officer Sato, which are somewhat awkwardly requited. He first appeared in the anime in episode 21/22(Lights... Camera... Murder), and made his first manga appearance in Volume 18 Chapter 171 - It Must be Similar. Strangely, for a time he had different hairstyles in different adaptions, smooth in the manga but slightly spiky in the anime, however his hair in the anime has more recently started looking like his manga counterpart's. His last name, Takagi, is used as the first name in the English Manga. He was named after his seiyū Wataru Takagi. His English voice actor is Doug Burks. Takagi has an appearance of ineffectual nervousness, but he's not as useless as he seems. He is quick to assess a situation and take immediate and decisive action when necessary or when it points in his favor. Conan frequently asks Takagi to do favors for him during crime scene investigations and he usually does so without any question. Like Sato, he sees that Conan is extraordinarily smart and observant, and appears to suspect that Conan is not who he seems; This is seen when he makes close observations of Conan in certain investigations, especially at the end of Volume 36 or Episode 304 when he and Conan get perilously trapped in an elevator together, resulting in Conan being forced to defuse a time bomb in his presence. When Conan and Takagi have a talk about the time bomb, he asks Conan "Who are you?" Conan replies rather cryptically that he'll tell him, but only in the afterlife. [edit]Officer Isshin Chiba Officer Isshin Chiba (千葉一伸 Isshin Chiba?) is Takagi's partner who likes to eat a lot. He's nice and very encouraging towards his friend.

He made his first appearance in the first Detective Conan movie and his manga appearance was in Volume 21, along with Officer Sato. Later in the series he makes overt advances towards Miwako, relying heavily on his status as the scion of a wealthy family (and doing his best to make the shy and awkward Takagi feel inferior in the process). However, after meeting Conan's elementary school teacher, Sumiko Kobayashi, he has stopped pursuing Officer Sato. He is known to have good knowledge on wine. His seiyū was Kaneto Shiozawa and is now Kazuhiko Inoue. His English voice actor is Eric Vale.

He is widowed and has a single daughter, Sayuri Matsumoto / Catherine McLaughlin, who used to be Jimmy's, Rachel's, and Serena's music teacher in middle school. He received the scar on his face during a confrontation with a serial killer 20 years prior to the series. His seiyū is Seizo Katou and his English voice actor is Bob Carter.

He originally meant to redeem his partner Hagiwara, who died four years before in a related incident, but was unable to succeed. Miwako was partnered with him for less than a week, but his intense personality and subsequent death left a huge and lasting impact on her for years to come. Judging from her reactions to him shortly before he died, it is believed Sato was starting to fall in love with him. She has now carried the love on to Inspector Takagi, though she is reluctant to admit it. His character design is based on that of the famous Japanese actor Yusaku Matsuda. His seiyū is Canna Nobutoshi. [edit]Yumi Miyamoto Yumi Miyamoto (宮本 由美 Miyamoto Yumi?) is a traffic officer and Inspector Sato's best friend.

[edit]Inspector Jugo Inspector Jugo (横溝 重悟 Yokomizo Jugo?) is the twin brother of Detective Yokomizo Worthington who works at the Kanagawa police department.

Yamamoto Kansuke was also disabled in one eye and one leg. Kansuke is also a childhood friend of Yui Euhara (上原 由衣 Uehara Yui?), as well as her superior in the Nagano police.

She has a personal vendetta against Vermouth concerning the death of her father. She likes to call Conan "cool kid" but does not know his secret as she asks Vermouth (who knows Conan's identity) the reason she called him "cool guy" instead of "kid".

Conan is the only one having second thoughts about Eisuke; the others think that he's just a smart misguided student. Eisuke becomes an increasingly suspicious character as he begins looking for his sister, who looks almost identical to Rena Mizunashi; however, Eisuke insists that it is not Rena. However, his lie is revealed when he tracks down Kir/Rena to the hospital where she is hidden by the FBI, where it is revealed that Kir/Rena is indeed Eisuke's sister, and an undercover CIA agent.

He persistently builds friendship with Conan/Jimmy despite Jimmy's seeming disinterest, because they share the same goals of becoming greatest detectives and Jimmy is the only person he finds in his age group that can rival his deduction skills, and often helps in hiding Conan's secret (though occasionally he suffers a slip of tongue). Harley is also a master Kendo fighter. Unlike Jimmy, his favorite author is Ellery Queen rather than Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who wrote Sherlock Holmes.

She and Harley share a pouch with broken handcuffs which is their good luck charm. She forms a close bond with Ran after her initial jealousy. She is skilled in Aikido. This is similar to Rachel who is skilled in karate. Also both of them are scared of ghosts because "karate and aikido won't work on them."

He saves Serena from the real killer, however, and hints that he is actually attracted to her. In his own way, he can be considered a valuable ally because of his Karate skills. Because of his participation in several tournaments inland and overseas, and a well-hidden shyness towards Sonoko, they do not get to see each other often. Although he is regarded by Conan as a brainless fighting champion, he saves him along with Rachel and Serena many times by stumbling through the moronic clues left by Serena, which was originally made to find her and have one of her romantic fantasies come true. His seiyū is Nobuyuki Hiyama. [edit]Family [edit]Booker Kudo Main article: Booker Kudo Booker, known in Japan as Yusaku Kudo (工藤 優作 Kudo Yusaku?), is Shinichi's father.

His codename in the police department is 'International Criminal 1412'. Kaitou Kid appears in his own manga series, Magic Kaito as well. The original Kaitou Kid (8 years prior to the start of the story) focused on mostly stealing antiques and high-valued art.

Sagura has also made appearances in the anime and manga of Case Closed, though there are times Kaito uses him as a disguise. In one of his Case Closed appearances, he appears with a pet falcon named Watson.

[edit]Hikaru Yasumoto Hikaru Yasumoto (保本 ひかる Yasumoto Hikaru?) is the young household keeper to Dr. Tomoaki Araide.
