Description of Near: Read it or Tobi will get you!
A calm and stoic character that appears in the second half of the series. In the anime and manga versions, Near is one certain character to become L's successor and calls himself N during the course of his investigations. He shares a number of similarities with L. Like how L plays with things such as sugar cubes and forks, Near is playing with his toys or hair, and he is constantly shown sitting in an unusual manner, totally like L. After L's death, he was asked to join forces with Mello, who refused (And we all know who Mello is, the one who is totally crazy about chocolate). Near then gained the support of the "Government of the United States" and formed the Secret Provision for Kira (SPK). His real name is Nate River. L intends for Near to succeed him.
