Reiko Kujo (九条 玲子 Kujō Reiko?) is a character in the anime franchise Detective Conan.


[edit] Background

Reiko Kujo is Eri Kisaki's rival in those courtroom battles where the two meet on opposing sides. She has gathered a reputation as a successful prosecutor and, as a result of such, the nickname "Madonna of Prosecutors".

Kujo first met Kisaki when the latter took up the defense of Shinji Usami, who was being accused of the murder of Hirasawa Tsuyoshi, who slew Usami's young son by thoughtlessness. She became determined to beat Kisaki's winning streak and thus further her reputation by defeating the one defender who had never lost a case. However, it turned out that while Usami was involved in the crime in question, he was actually providing a cover for the true culprit, his ex-wife, who was subsequently exposed and arrested.[1]

Despite this defeat, Kujo vowed to humble Kisaki whenever a chance would present itself. However, she was always foiled by Conan's brilliance as a detective. In addition, a useful side effect of the confrontations between Kujo and Kisaki was that the latter's separated husband, Kogoro Mouri, would prepare to jump to his wife's defense in whatever way he could, even to the point of testifying as a witness in court.

[edit] Personality

Kujo is rather rash and eager to proclaim a defendant's guilt even with scant evidence at hand; whether this stems from her personal drive to defeat Kisaki or from her profession is as yet unrevealed. Whenever a case brings them together as opponents in the courtroom, Eri Kisaki and Reiko Kujo deal with each other on a strictly professional basis despite their intense rivalry. Each of them respects the other for her skills, however, and whenever a case turns against her, Kujo is fair enough to accept defeat and bring the true culprit to justice.

Kujo has a habit of twirling her pen around her finger when tense or in thought.
