"This whole goddamn world is spiraling out of control... and I've got to sit here and watch you finish? You may be smartest guy alive, Near, but Kira won't wait for anyone, 'specially us."

— Commander Rester

Anthony Carter is a character in Death Note: Our Truths. Like Near and the rest of the SPK, Anthony goes by aliases, to prevent his death at the hands of Kira. His true name is Anthony Carter, but most regularily goes by Anthony Rester. When addressing the world, on behalf of Near (L), he wears a hood and sunglasses and says his name is "Mr. Richards". In addition to his duties as head of the SPK (under Near) and spokesperson for that organization, he also is the unofficial caretaker of Near, acting as a sort of father figure to the 28 year old.


Our Truths

In Our Truths, Carter's role is expanded upon drastically. Here, he is the spokesperson and right hand man to Near, as they continue to operate the SPK, in the post-Kira world. Along with Near, he personally goes out to catch criminals (though only those chosen by Near, to be "interesting"). Due to the deaths of the only other SPK members (Steven Loud and Hallie Lidner), it was also Carter's job to recruit new members, based on skill. His new team includes several members, notably:

With these four, as well as Near, the SPK has once again regained it's prominence in catching the very best at the game.


As has been mentioned before, Commander Rester is the top guy at the SPK (still below Near, though). He also is the spokesman for that organiztion, under the guise of "Mr. Richards". His high rank, and general power have left him with a great influence, being able to get just about any project or monetary expense approved by the UN. However, with civil unrest growing, his influence has waned slightly, with UN leaders acting more cautious with their allocations to the SPK.

Anthony Carter is also the caretaker of Near, who (though 28 years old) requires advanced attention. Like L, Near acts like a child, still playing with toys, etc... and Carter acts like his "Watari".


  • As Near has become more like L, in this story Anthony Carter has become more like Watari.
  • Anthony Carter is also the only member of Near's team still alive, as both Stephen Loud and Halle Lidner were killed about six months before the story begins.
