Hattori Heiji
Age:High School Sophomore

Hattori Heiji is a high school detective from Osaka. He comes to Tokyo to test himself against Shinichi. Heiji eventually figures out that Conan is the brains behind Mouri, and that Conan is in fact Shinichi. The two become good friends after that, working on cases together when the opportunity arises. Occasionally Heiji gets Conan into a tight spot by calling him Kudou in front of Ran.
Heiji has a strong Kansai accent (Kansai is the region around Osaka and Kyoto), so much so that he can't seem to speak standard Japanese. Heiji is the son of the Osaka district police commissioner (a position at the top of the hierarchy), but Heiji prefers to get by on his own merits. Heiji gets his slightly dark skin from his grandfather. His childhood friend, Tohyama Kazuha, has a budding, (but since it's manga) denied romance going with him.

1. The name Heiji comes from Zenigata Heiji, a fictional Edo period detective. Incidentally, it's the same Zenigata who Lupin III's nemesis is supposedly descended from.
