Near from Death Note

Let’s meet Near!

In Death Note Light Yagami, a high school student discovers a supernatural notebook, the “death note”, dropped on Earth by a shinigami (a god of death) named Ryuk. The death note grants its user the ability to kill anyone whose name and face they know, by writing the name in the notebook while picturing his or her face. The series centers on Light’s attempt to create and rule a world “cleansed of evil” as “God” using the notebook, and the efforts of a taskforce of detectives, run by a genius criminologist known as L to stop him.

Near (Nate Rivers) is one of L’s successors that take up the cause to catch Kira (Light Yagami’s alias). He is quite eccentric always playing with toys, building towers with either dice or playing cards and using Lego figurines and finger puppets to explain scenarios. He is a genius however and quite a capable successor to L.
