The manga series Case Closed, known as Meitantei Conan (名探偵コナン?, lit. Great Detective Conan, officially translated as Detective Conan) in Japan, features a large number of recurring fictional characters originally created by Gosho Aoyama. The series takes place in modern-day Japan and follows amateur detective Jimmy Kudo who solves cases in an episodic fashion while in his childhood body and under the alias Conan Edogawa. He is joined by childhood friend Rachel Moore, and her father Richard Moore who runs a Detective agency. Throughout the series, Conan interacts and befriends many characters from various groups: the Tokyo Metropolitan Police, the local police in Conan's prefecture; The Junior Detective League, a group of children who solves mysteries for their clients; and the FBI. He also befriends a few individuals who know of his true identity: Dr. Agasa, who provides Jimmy with various spy gadgets; Harley Hartwell, a high school detective from Osaka; and Anita Hailey, the original developer of the poison who had also transformed into a child.
The manga became licensed by Viz Media while the anime adaptation was licensed by Funimation Entertainment. The two companies have Americanized many of the character names with both companies using different names or spellings for the same characters on several occasions.

Jimmy Kudo, known as Shinichi Kudo (工藤 新一 Kudō Shin'ichi?) in Japan, is a high school detective who solves difficult cases for the police.[ch. 1] During one of his investigations, he is attacked and forced to take an experimental poison by a member of the Black Organization. However, due to a rare side-effect, he shrinks to the form of a young child.[ch. 1] In order to keep his true identity a secret, he now goes under the alias Conan Edogawa (江戸川 コナン Edogawa Konan?) and pretends to be a real child to throw off suspicion while he secretly solves many cases and looks for clues about the organization.[ch. 2] He loves his childhood friend Rachel Moore, but cannot confess his feelings or reveal his true identity in order to protect her.[vol. 1] His two Japanese voice actors are Kappei Yamaguchi for Jimmy and Minami Takayama for Conan. He is voiced by Jerry Jewell for Jimmy and Alison (Retzloff) Viktorin for Conan in the English localization. In the first and second live drama he was portrayed by Shun Oguri in teenage form and Nao Fujisaki in child form. In the dramas following the two, he is portrayed by Junpei Mizobata.
Rachel Moore, known as Ran Mori (毛利 蘭 Mōri Ran?) in Japan, is Jimmy Kudo's friend since elementary school. She loves Jimmy but is afraid to admit her feelings, and denies their relationship is romantic whenever the conversation is brought up. She often worries for his safety and waits for his return. As captain of the karate team and a regional champion, she is able to fend for herself physically against attackers, but is still squeamish when it comes to films and shows in the horror genre.[ch. 1] She is also skilled in Judo, like her father. She is very kind and helps anyone in need, even if that person is a potential criminal. In one instance, her kindness to Vermouth prompts the latter to keep Jimmy's identity a secret from the Black Organization. Like Jimmy, she dislikes the idea of killing anyone, including criminals, as she believes criminals should face punishment through the justice system. The Junior Detective League views her as a role model and the kids often turns to her for advice. She is skilled in house chores, including sewing and cooking, and has very good fortune in games of chance, hardly ever losing in games such as mahjong. She spends most of her home life looking after Conan and her father, and hopes that her father and mother can reconcile their separation. Throughout the series, there are times she has suspected Conan Edogawa to be Jimmy, but Jimmy fools her so that she second guesses herself.[vol. 3][ch. 258] In the anime, she is voiced by Wakana Yamazaki in the Japanese dub, and by Colleen Clinkenbeard in the English dub. In the 2006–07 live-action drama, she was portrayed by Tomoka Kurokawa. Shiori Kutsuna portrays the character in the 2011 drama series.

Richard Moore, known as Kogoro Mori (毛利 小五郎 Mōri Kogorō?) in Japan, is Rachel's father and a private detective.

Because he appears to be tired or sleeping when solving a case, he is often referred to as "Sleeping Moore" (眠りの小五郎 Nemuri no Kogorō?, lit. "Sleeping Kogoro").[ch. 119] Before becoming a private detective, he worked as a police officer under Inspector Meguire.[ch. 7] He is married to Eva Kaden, a successful lawyer and childhood friend, but they have been separated for over ten years due to their constant arguing.[ch. 107] He reveals that on many occasions he still loves her and has attempted to reconcile their relationship.[ch. 266] Despite his irresponsible ways, he cares deeply for his daughter and at times displays his sense of honor and strict ethics. He is skilled in Judo.[ch. 86] His Japanese voice actor was Akira Kamiya but was replaced with Rikiya Koyama in 2009. His English voice actor is R Bruce Elliott.
