Three Sided Plot! Ryuk, Near and Q and R!
Light Yagami was defeated 6 years ago and "C-Kira" only 3 years ago, however the world hasn't exactly become a bright and beautiful place since then. Large mobs and gatherings have been growing larger and larger exclaiming their hope and prayer for divine judgement as criminal action rates grow in numbers at an unprecedented rate. A war was on the horizon and it seemed there was no hope for the corrupted world.
Empathy it seems for Near and Ryuk, who both look down on the poor souls who try to both create a "perfect world" and destroy it. Near sits and watches alone alongside Watari, un-interested in all of the crimes or the "Return Kira" mobs as he thinks it will all blow over, the crimes have no thought put into them whatsoever and the Mobs are just pathetic little people crying out for their "God", who was no doubt a senseless murderer. Working on his own now, it seems he has had no opportunities to show his worthiness to inherit the "L" name from his predecessor, leaving him alone in the shadows as the world practically falls apart.
Ryuk on the other hand sees opportunity in the madness, looking in on the global turmoil from above he knows that returning to the human world would be very interesting. He soon begins scouting for the one who could succeed Light, the one who could take on the name of "Kira", and bring theoretical "justice" to the corrupt world. It starts with him looking into the leaders of the "Return Kira" mobs and soon the new Kira is found, none other than a former student from Wammy's House, S .
Just as the New Kira begins taking on his role and starts killing criminals at a rapid rate, an Investigative duo, Q and R, begin their investigation. Flying over from Bristol in England to Tokyo, they begin preparations to start a co operative investigation with the Japanese Police starting with a broadcasted announcement to INTERPOL, or the I.C.P.O, using knowledge that they've gathered over the first couple of weeks of the new "Kira"'s reign. Near is soon informed of this, and so it seems that the Three Way War begins...
Who is The New "Kira?"
Ryuk searched long and hard for the one worthy to succeed Light, looking through leaders of "Return Kira" mobs and people with high intelligence but no one seemed to fit the bill. Then, the most beautifully perfect individual revealed himself. S, his alias, or better known as Spencer Wyatt to those he interacts with. A strong believer in Kira's Justice and a highly intelligent former student of Wammy's house, how much more perfect could he be? Ryuk descends to the human world once more to allow Spencer to get his wish, for Kira to return, but also to become Kira and to bring divine judgement to criminals.
Spencer is highly intelligent, being a former student from Wammy's he knows exactly how to challenge Near, R and Q, making him a larger threat than Light Yagami ever was.
