Ninzaburo Shiratori (白鳥 任三郎, Shiratori Ninzaburō; English TV: "Nicholas Santos"), Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department's First Division Inspector and the romantic interest of Sumiko Kobayashi, is a supporting character in the manga and anime franchise Detective Conan.

Background

Shiratori is born into a wealthy family during his Early Childhood He originally studied to become a Lawyer and studied diligently to one day become a lawyer, and had even memorized some laws by heart. One day, he witnessed a young girl confronting two juveniles trying to steal mangas from a bookstore. When the two offenders had pushed the girl to the floor for her protests, and seemed about to hurt her, Shiratori had stepped forward to recite the provisions made in the Japanese Law to punish stealing. This somewhat unnerved the juveniles and attracted the attention of the store owner and the other customers, causing the offenders to hastily get away. To thank him for helping her out, the girl bought him a drink and made a sakura petal pattern from the straw wrapper, saying that the sakura was the symbol of courage for the Japanese police (due to the distinct form of the Japanese police badge), and Shiratori had acted with courage just like them. It was because of this incident that Shiratori decided to become a cop rather than a lawyer, and also started to consider the girl to be his childhood love.

Personality

Shiratori is a well manner and collective person and acts much more conceited than his one-time rival for Miwako Sato's affections, Wataru Takagi. His favorite hobbies include studying architecture, cooking, and collecting wine, including his favorite Romane Conti. Shiratori tends to do well in cases when faced with topics pertinent to his upper class tastes, especially in cases involving wine.
