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.
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
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.
