Daisuke Jigen is a colleague of Arsene Lupin III and often partners up with him for missions. He is one of the most skilled marksman in the world and his accuracy with a gun makes him very useful in fights.
Jigen has a violent temper when provoked but he also shares Lupin's sense of humor and enjoys participating in various capers if there's a worthwhile reward. Jigen is very loyal to Lupin but distrusts Fujiko and dislikes including her in their schemes (since she often betrays them and steals all their loot).
Jigen was first voiced in an English dub created in the late 70s. His voice actor is unknown.
Jigen was voiced by Steve Bulen in the Streamline English dubs. Steve Bulen voiced Jigen in the original English dub of The Castle of Cagliostro, a new English dub for The Secret of Mamo and 2 episodes of the Part II TV series.
