Jodie Starling (ジョディ・スターリング, Jodi Sutāringu), an FBI Agent who is also known by her alias Jodie Saintemillion (ジョディ・サンテミリオン, Jodi Santemirion), is a supporting character in the manga and anime franchise Detective Conan.
Some twenty years ago, when Jodie was still just a little girl, Vermouth killed her parents, who had been working on the Black Organization as well as knowing a lot of important information about Vermouth to assist the FBI. Vermouth was surprised to find Jodie in Jodie's house, and after Jodie asked what was going on, Vermouth told her to wait by her father until he woke up, and that "a secret makes a woman woman". She then set the house ablaze, thus destroying any evidence that she had been there, along with the corpses of Jodie's parents and any records about the Black Organization.
Fortunately, Jodie had decided to run down the street to the store to buy her father some orange juice, and thus survived. She was later put under protection by the FBI, although she declined the Witness Protection Program. Eventually Jodie became an FBI agent herself under the tutelage and patronage of James Black. The only remaining memento from her past is the set of glasses she wears, which originally belonged to her father.
Jodie is slim woman with blonde hair
Jodie usually is a very serious person, but also has demonstrated a very playful and carefree side (as it is seen when she is Ran's English teacher). She seems to like movies (especially mystery and action-oriented films) and enjoys action video games. She is also capable of keeping a cool head during a crisis like, during a bus hijacking, she never fell out of her role as Jodie Saintemillion. The ease with which she's come to trust Conan's capabilities, at times unquestioningly following his direction despite the fact he looks like a little boy to her, indicates she can be quite open-minded and flexible, although a caveat to this is made in regards to Vermouth. Jodie's grudge against Vermouth runs deep, and Jodie reacted extremely negatively when given the slightest suggestion that Vermouth might have a kind side to her.
She's shown to be quite observant and, while not at the level of Shinichi or Akai, is effective at deduction and case solving, contributing to the progress of several cases. Also, once she became aware that it was very likely Akai had faked his death, she was able to deduce most of the trick he used unassisted.
