Character Bio: L Lawliet (Japanese: エル・ローライト Hepburn: Eru Rōraito) is a fictional character in the manga series Death Note, created by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata. An enigmatic individual with a past shrouded in mystery, he is an eccentric genius and international private investigator, reputed to be the world’s best and brightest, who takes on cases that have stymied national governments and Interpol, and communicates with the world only through his equally inexplicable handler/assistant: “Watari”. He takes up the task of hunting down the mysterious serial-killer/vigilante known only under the alias of: “Kira”, who is being pursued by various law enforcement agencies, such as the FBI and Interpol, and along the way, while being assisted by the Japanese police agency’s anti-Kira task-force, deduces that the series’ main character Light Yagami: an intellectually-gifted Japanese high school student and one of the anti-Kira task-force’s members’ son is connected to “Kira”, who is attempting to create and rule a world “cleansed of evil” as its “God” through seemingly supernatural means, due to his deduction of Light and Kira’s similar psychological profile and IQ, which leads L to consider Light as a “Kira” suspect, with the rest of the series focusing on L observing Light’s activities, resulting in a psychological mind-game of cat and mouse between the two individuals, as both Light and L attempt to uncover each other’s identity, before their cover is blown. He basically serves as the archenemy of Kira/Light.
