Korn is Chianti's partner, and also a skilled assassin, assigned in the assassination division of the Black Organization. He is always seen wearing thick glasses and a hat.
Even if he is less impatient than Chianti, Korn enjoys killing, and is disappointed when he does not get the opportunity to. Like most members of the organization, he has a cold personality. However, unlike the other members, he appears to be asocial, rarely interacting with other members unless spoken to. He is always seen frowning and looks robotic. His speech is short and full of pauses, leading some fans to speculate that he may have some sort of speech impediment, is a foreigner with weak Japanese or merely because of his age.
Korn appears for the first time at a shooting stand belonging to the Black Organization, training for the planned murder of Yasutero Domon. Later, he is present when Gin discusses the time and place of this murder with Kir. Even if he is supposed to participate in the two attempted assassinations (against Yasutero Domon and Kogoro Mouri), and is, each time, seen waiting for Gin's order to shoot, he never gets the opportunity to fire.
Korn is seen in Chianti's car. He tells her he thinks Kir is dead.
Non-Canon Plot Overview
Movie 13: The Raven Chaser
Korn and Chianti are charged by Gin to burst the tires of Takagi's car, and immediately leave once their mission executed. At the end of the movie, he appears in the helicopter piloted by Vodka, albeit he is not the one to fire at Irish and Conan.
Movie 20: The Darkest Nightmare
Korn appears in Movie 20 in a pitch black helicopter near the end of the movie as a pilot. During the movie, Korn, together with Chianti, received orders from Gin to spy on the Public Security Bureau when Curaçao was transferred to the hospital. He was also able to snipe a British spy known as Stout with a headshot when Stout was receiving orders on a bus.
Chianti is Korn's partner. They seem to get along well enough; Chianti confides to Korn that she would like to kill Vermouth because she led Calvados to his death. They are not dating. However, the animation team added an extra scene in the episode one remake special where Korn blushes when Chianti asks him if he wants to ride the ferris wheel, which in Japan is considered a romantic activity for couples.
Korn, like Chianti, resents Vermouth, believing she caused the death of Calvados. He wishes to kill Vermouth.
