Nate River / Near (ニア, Nia), is the youngest of L's two successors, raised in Watari's orphanage for gifted children (Wammy's House). After the death of L, Near begins his investigation of the Kira case. After gathering evidence over a period of four years, Near takes his findings to the President of the United States and reveals himself to be the true successor of L. Soon after, Near becomes the head of the SPK and continues the hunt for Kira. After making contact with "L" (Light Yagami), Near begins to suspect that the current "L" is also Kira.
Friend A: Oh my Kira, we should go watch Death note again!
Friend B: Yeah! You coming?
Me: Hell yeah! Only for Nate River though :)
Friend A: Of course only you would say that!
