Leader of the New National Socialist Party
Knochen von Tod is the leader of the New National Socialist Party and the main antagonist of the Death Note franchise. His face was never seen until the end of the series. He was also the 10th Kira and the only one to keep the death note the longest out of any other Death Note users (including Light and Misa).
Personality and Traits
Knochen is an intelligent and patient man . His intellect and cleverness surpasses L and Light put together. Despite wanting to bring back the Nazi regime to Germany, he believes the purity of the Aryan Race was a delusional and non-existent philosophy (which is true). He prefers the militaristic and nationalist side of the ideology. He also has more knowlage about the Death Note than Light. Infact he has little respect for Light, firmly beliving him to be a "someone who was too week and unworthy to be a god" and an arrogant coward. He is also good at deceiving his enemies as he used fake death notes with the same handwriting as the orginals. Also unlike Light, Tod is unwilling to let his pride get to him as he knows how sloppy Light became after he killed L (which he qoute "all great empires eventaully become a shadow of their former self."). He's even been able to both outsmart Light (As a Shinigami) and Near. His relationship and rivalry with L (who was still alive after righting his own name in the death note) is reminiscent to that of Sherlock Holmes and Professor Moriarty.
- Ryuk took a liking to Knochen von Tod, beliving him to be far more ruthless and compadant than Light.
