Maebara Aiko is Maebara Keiichi's mother. She first appears in Onikakushi-hen along with her husband, Maebara Ichirō. She is rarely seen or fully depicted in the anime, but she appears various times throughout the manga adaptations. In the anime, like her husband, her face is not fully shown. However, her hair is depicted as brown and shoulder length.
In Tatarigoroshi-hen, it's revealed by Keiichi that she's very fond of detective novels and reads all kind of crime novels of different writers all over the world (including books by Agatha Christie like And Then There Were None and Murder on the Orient Express). She also wrote a crime novel once and contributed to a crime novel contest. She easily reveals the trick of the perfect crime to Keiichi which helps him to murder Hōjō Teppei. As is described by Ōishi, she graduated in a "humble women's university".
