Rikumichi Kusuda was a member of the Black Organization. He was sent by the Organization to search for Rena Mizunashi in Haido Central Hospital. He was pretending to be a patient with cervical spine sprain in order to move about the hospital without suspicion. Eisuke Hondou told Ran he heard a man dialing Nanatsu no ko at the hospital and with that information Conan and Shuichi Akai were able to figure out which patient Eisuke overheard. Later that night, Rikumichi sneaked to the nurses' station to photograph the patient list and was cornered by the FBI. In order to escape, he threatened the FBI with fake C4 he had hidden under his neck collar. He drives away, but is unable to warn the Organization because Conan had damaged his phone with water. Shuichi Akai chases him in pursuit and after recognizing exactly which FBI agent was tailing him, he commits suicide. It is unclear what happened to his body and crashed Nissan afterwards.
During his short-lived appearance in Episode 498, it is shown Kusuda was extremely loyal to the Black Organization. In addition, Rikumichi seems to have been an experienced spy and was able to write to the boss directly, yet he was not high enough ranking to get a known codename. Though he was cornered by FBI, he was calm and level-headed; he even recognized the trap of FBI early on.
