Gorou Akechi Confidant Guide
A high school student with a keen sense on detail, Gorou is widely known as “The Second Advent of Detective Prince.” Although he appears quite popular, there is a darker side to Gorou. His past continues to haunt him as his mother has committed suicide, while his father left him. Growing up, he lives the life of a loner by not being able to befriend anyone. These circumstances have fueled Gorou’s longing to become a detective.
Despite his past, Gorou has felt a sense of fulfillment by joining the Phantom Thieves of Hearts which granted him happiness he has been longing for in a long time, although Gorou still feels bothered as there are still some conflicts that sprouts from within him.
His character is possibly inspired from Kogoro Akechi a fictional detective created by the Japanese writer Edogawa Ranpo. This might also branch out as an inspiration from Sherlock Holmes.
