Tohei Benzaki (弁崎 桐平 Benzaki Tōhei) is a character in the manga and anime franchise Detective Conan.
Tohei Benzaki is a Tokyo officer worker and lives in a humble appartment. He is single and has difficulty to find a wife and became an easy target for Vermouth and Bourbon so they could knock him out and impersonate him in order to take information from Jodie about wether or not Akai is dead. It is stated he drives since police finds his driver license in his wallet. He went to the bank to register his paycheck but a group of robbers made a bank heist and asked people to put tape on their mouths. He is religious since he recollected himself to a shrine to honor the traditions and watch the cherry blossoms.
According to the Tokyo MPD, he was a single and, as Conan deduced, Motoe Benzaki, his pretended wife, was in fact Vermouth in disguise. She pretended she was his pregnant wife event though it was impossible since he was single and she couldn't have putten tape on people at the Teito Bank heist since only singles could have putten tape on people to eliminate any emotion involved.
Benzaki is a 35-year-old worker in pretty good shape and has a simple haircut with light bangs. He appears wearing a coat with a turtleneck and a medical mask to disguise his voice when Bourbon used it. He has an average height.
Tohei is a normal working man who doesn't like to be disturbed. He lives calmly and was irritated when the police went to question him. When Bourbon disguises as him, he seem more polite and inviting and likes conversation which really contrasts giving more clues to him having been impersonated. He is precautious since he only brings few money because when he was pickpocketed, he wasn't stolen a large amount of cash.
