Gin (ジン, Jin), a high ranking member of the Karasuma Group, is an antagonist in the manga and anime franchise Detective Conan. He was responsible for turning Shinichi into a small child with the experimental poison APTX 4869.

Background

Appearance

Gin is a tall man with, as Shinichi put it, the eyes of someone who has easily killed many people without a care. He has long silver hair it was originally light brown in the anime, then blond, then finally changed to Silver in Movie 13 that goes down to his hips and dark green eyes. He wears a black hat, long black coat, and a green turtleneck sweater. Gin also has a scar on his left cheek which he receive from being graze from a bullet by Shuichi Akai

Personality

Although Gin is loyal to Karasuma Group and follows all of their orders, he is also shown to act on his own initiative on more than one occasion. He is more than willing to take matters into his own hands when he feels another member has failed. He does not trust anyone and does not fully believe anything he doesn't witness himself. He even once pulled a gun on his own partner, Vodka, when he went against orders and rescheduled a meeting with one of their contacts outside of the organization.

Gin is quite perceptive and intelligent he can smell out traps his partner Vodka easily falls for. He has yet to be truly outsmarted by Conan, although he has been foiled a couple of times. As soon as he becomes suspicious of someone he gets to work looking into them, but as soon as his suspicions are proven wrong he tends to lose interest completely.

Despite being menacing and coldblooded, Gin appeares to respect certain members of his team Vodka, Vermouth when she persuades him to leave Conan and Kogoro alone, and Kir when he decides not to kill anyone at the hospital after she asks him not to.

Trivia

  • Gin is a Liquor which derives its predominant flavor from Juniper Berries.

  • Gin's Vehicle is a Black Porsche 356A, which he refers to as the "German Black Rain Frog".

    • Notably, the Vehicles's Plate Number was "A 48-69", the same numbers that are used in APTX 4869.

    • However, the Vehicle's Plate Number is changed to "MI 43-68" as shown in later episodes after Episode 178.

  • Gin's Hair Color has drastically been changed throughout the Anime:

    • Gin's Hair Color was actually Light Brown at first and the line structure is not as detailed. In addition, a part of his hair comes down his face across his nose.

    • Gin's Hair Color later becomes Blond and the line structure is strongly detailed. Moreover, there is no hair that comes down across his face anymore.

    • Gin's Hair Color changes once again in Opening 24 where it is then Silver to match his Manga Depiction.

  • "Gin" (銀) which is pronounced with a Hard G is also known as "Silver" in Japanese, the Current Color of Gin's Hair.

  • Gin prefers to shoot on his Target's Head, like Chianti and Korn.
