But I believe 'Rum will merely appear as a vague or shadowy figure' is possible too.


Agreed.

It was still official confirmation, though. Nevertheless, your point is well taken. :)

Rum suspects...

Hyoue = RED HERRING

Kansuke = RED HERRING + Confirmed by Gosho (at least twice)

Kiyonaga = Gosho would have to render some of the last panels of Page 16 (or 18, maybe) of File 80 to make it work + Rum would likely have been in BO from the beginning of his life... I don't see him letting himself get scarred when he's well into his BO career (Kiyonaga was 30 in the flashback, I think)

Heizo = Father of upstanding detective, husband of upstanding wife, both of whom had at least one big moral speech... maybe not his best move, as Rum, to have his son and wife be potential threats to his freedom

Taka'aki is the only suspect I can't really rule out, even though he and the four I just mentioned have all had opportunities to see Shinichi's/Conan's intelligence, and Hyoue and Kansuke have both seen Shiho/Ai (Kansuke in File 681, I think). Kiyonaga may have seen her in File 807 or File 808 when she came into Police HQ. That leaves Heizo and Taka'aki without seeing her—Rum may not know of Shinichi Kudo that well, so seeing his intellect would be just something Rum would be curious about, rather than alarm bell ringing, "He should be dead!"... that applies for Shiho/Ai, though—Rum seeing Shiho/Ai should lead to things happening.

I agree with all of that, while I don't like the idea that Taka'aki is RUM, it's not impossible, but his friendship with Kansuke would be weird if that's the case, I think we should wait until more RUM cases happen, at some point I think that Conan will realize that RUM's characteristics might not be physical.

Voted: Rum will merely appear as a vague or shadowy figure

The distorted voice option would be my second guess.

Maybe their friendship is for the purpose of showing it'll be hard for Kansuke to bring him down, if Taka'aki is Rum.

The false eye could easily be a setup by Rum to mislead people—knowing how BO character-centered cases start, Shinichi/Conan will stumble on something that makes Rum's identity clearer.

These two are the most likely options, I think.

I put "Movie only character" just in case
I hope that I can find someway to contribute to the community even if it's just random crack theories and looking things up for people who can't find the information they need.

My dA There is one file for solely DC drawings.
My FF I have two DC fics: Rose in the Ecplipse of the Sun(or RitEotS) and Dream... or Not(or just DoN). The latter one still ongoing and has a spin-off Leap to Relatively Unknown.
My Tumblr

Chapter 72 of Dream or Not finished the fic

Chapter 27 of Leap to Relatively Unknown updated 22.8.17 (22nd of August)

The sequel, Leaping into the Dream has gotten its first chapter 13.4.17 (13th April)


Brilliant DC roleplay behind the years where I was Sera Read away.

Movie Only Character, my second choice would be that it's a disguise, maybe RUM would appear like that, it won't reveal the identity and RUM would appear at the same time.

That makes two of us.
