The Justice Confidant – Goro Akechi
A high school student with a keen sense of detail, Goro is widely known as “The Second Advent of the Detective Prince.” Although he appears quite popular, there is a darker side to Goro. His past haunts him, his mother having committed suicide and his father having abandoned him. Growing up, he as a loner, unable to befriend anyone. These circumstances fueled Goro’s longing to become a detective.
Despite his past, Goro feels a sense of fulfillment by joining up with the Phantom Thieves of Hearts. This grants him a glimpse of the happiness he has been longing for. Goro still feels bothered as there are still some conflicts within him, though.
His character is possibly inspired by Kogoro Akechi, a fictional detective created by the Japanese writer Ranpo Edogawa. This might also branch out as inspiration from Sherlock Holmes.
