Biography

Kidd's profile
“ A boy detective. He claims he has solved many tough cases, but no one knows for sure. ”

Kidd is a boy detective who puts on a red eye-mask and starts his investigations whenever an incident occurs. Although possessed with a heavy belief in his abilities, he usually remains unaware that the incidents he investigates inevitably turn out to be nothing worth fussing about.

During the War of the Champions he worked together with Hugo to solve a murder case in the Duck Village (the victim turned out to be asleep after practising yoga and not, in fact, a mangled corpse). Joining the Fire Bringer after this case, he was available to investigate members of the group.

His other cases in Duck Village were similar in nature. An allegedly kidnapped girl turned out to be merely wandering and the chief's stolen salted fish turned out to have been eaten by his wife. Still, Kidd remains undeterred. To him, it's the detective's theories and not the reality that mark a detective as great or not.

Following the war, Kidd took up the investigation of a kidnapped lady of the Black Rose Society in a foreign land.

Trivia

  • Kidd's design is loosely based on Conan Edogawa, the protagonist of the manga and anime series Detective Conan/Case Closed.
