Appearance and personality
Baya is an older woman with light-colored, curled hair and a hawk nose, which suggests some degree of non-Japanese ancestry. She is also fairly tall, as she sits level with 5'11" Saguru Hakuba when driving a car. In her only visible appearance, she wears a suit coat over a black turtleneck and glasses on a thin chain.
Baya first appears in the Twilight Mansion Case, which marked Saguru Hakuba's first appearance as well. She drove him to the Mansion and remained hidden nearby in case he needed help. They marked the top of her car with a large 'X' so Hakuba's hawk Watson could find her and relay messages between them.
She is also mentioned in the Detective Koushien. However, this time Saguru has come alone and told her not to wait for him.
The housekeeper also appears in the Dark Knight case in Magic Kaito. She is driving Hakuba to the Kaito Kid heist, but Kaito tricks her into taking a route right through a traffic jam which slows their progress, so Saguru gets out of the car and runs the rest of the way.
- The word 'baya' means either 'old housekeeper' or 'wet nurse'.
