Tequila was heard speaking in a Kansai dialect (New York accent in the Funimation dub) by Conan. He is described by Conan as being very tall. Nothing much is known about him as he dies a few pages after he is introduced into the manga. Two years ago before Conan's encounter with Gin and Vodka, Tequila was negotiating with a famous computer system programmer Suguru Itakura and asked him if he could develop some software program that would be useful for the syndicate. Itakura described him in diary as someone who he won't want to meet ever again in his life. Ryusuke Soma, a game company executive described him as a suspicious large tall man with a big mustache. On the day of his death, he had a deal with a Mantendo game developer, Hideaki Nakajima. The deal was that Nakajima sold the organization a list of the world's top computer developers. The exchange happened that after both Tequila and Nakajima had check in their briefcases at a convention, they switch numbers and keys and afterwards claim their 'new' briefcases. However prior to the switch, a third party named Hironobu Takeshita, who had a grudge against Nakajima, put a bomb in his own briefcase and swapped keys and number secretly behind Nakajima's back to kill him with the bomb, so Tequila ended up the bomb instead and went to toilet to check the briefcase's contents and died.
Being large in size, he usually intimidates people, which helps with his transactions. When he had his fateful encounter with Conan, he bumped into Conan and Hideaki Nakajima, knocking them to the floor. He didn't even apologize, and continued on his way. Also, when Conan pretended he dropped a 10 yen coin that had fallen beneath Tequila's shoe and really tried to stick a transmitter and bug on the sole of his shoe, Conan was hit hard by Tequila for annoying him. This shows Tequila has an impatient personality and isn't afraid to hit young children.
