Case Closed GIN theme



Gin (Pronounced Jin) is considered to be the main antagonist of the anime/manga, Case Closed. He's one of the best members of the criminal organization called the Black Organization. He is Jimmys arch-nemesis.


He is tall, handsome, and he has long silver hair that reaches down to his hips, and he has cold, icy blue eyes of a cold blooded killer. He's also a man of uncertain age, and he looks very menacing. Gin's appearance has never changed in all of his appearances. He wears a black fedora with a grey or white hatband. His only shown outfit is a knee length, notched lapel, black trench coat with the collar upturned to obscure part of his face and a loose white turtleneck underneath. He likely also wears a ballistic vest beneath these. He wears black trousers and black dress shoes. When trying to avoid leaving fingerprints, he dons a pair of white gloves (black in the anime.)


Gin is among the most loyal members to the Black Organization. He follows the boss of the organization's orders most closely and virtually never acts against their greater interests. He is also one of the Black Organization's most dangerous operatives; Conan miscalculating his intelligence, abilities, and speed of response have resulted in several very close calls and awry plans.He has yet to be truly outsmarted by Conan, although he has been foiled a couple times. Gin is a merciless and efficient assassin. He has no compunctions about killing or threatening his teammates.

Fitting his icy personality, Gin's displayed range of emotions so far is relatively limited. Wearing a threatening smirk, he enjoys hunting traitors, watching the plans he has concocted succeed, and cornering his targets. Although he seems to take satisfaction with taking out someone personally, Gin is also satisfied with orchestrating a target's death even if he does not pull the trigger himself. He is not easily frustrated and takes setbacks in good stride, shown when he coolly orders a retreat when Shuichi Akai ambushed the Black Organization. He is patient and cautious, preferring to wait until success is most likely. He does not like potential loose ends, preferring to get rid of anything doubtful. Gin does not trust anyone and does not fully believe anything he doesn't witness himself.
