The Boss of the Black Organization, respectfully called Ano Kata (あの方, That Person) by his/her subordinates, is an antagonist in the manga and anime franchise Detective Conan.


The Boss appears to be the highest ranking member of the Black Organization who direct the syndicate's activities and plan its crimes to protect the Black Organization and advance its interests. The Boss of the Black Organization only communicates with his/her subordinates through text messages with the number #969#6261, which follows the tune of the Children Song Nanatsu No Kono (七つの子, Seven Children). The Boss is also responsible for promoting Black Organization Agents and deciding on their Black Organization Codenames.


Character Nature

The Boss appears to be fairly ruthless, willing to dispatch Executive Agents like Pisco who had been loyal to the Black Organization for many years for a single mistake. The Boss of the Black Organization is also described to be overly cautious by Vermouth.

Somehow, the Boss can maintain loyalty and unity within the Black Organization despite many agents disliking or even outright wishing to murder certain others.

The Boss of the Black Organization is also known to give permission to certain Black Organization Agents who wish to pursue certain missions, such as Bourbon and Vermouth's plan to confirm Shuichi Akai's death.

The Boss appears to be especially close to Vermouth, who is described as "That Person's Favorite", to the point of giving her limited independence and protecting her from other Black Organization Agents who hates, mistrusts and wishes to kill her.

In addition, the Boss is also close to Gin, who often acts as an intermediary between the Boss and other Black Organization Agents. Gin usually takes the leader planning role in missions that the Boss has ordered.

Furthermore, the Boss is known to be close to Rum, dubbed as "That Person's Close Adviser" and the Second-In-Command of the Black Organization.
