Kira's Spokesperson (Kira no kōhō tantō, キラの広報担当) refers to Kira's appointed messenger chosen to spread Kira's "ideals and teachings", whether it be through the media, news, or public influence.

History[]

DN76 spokesperson

Light decides to choose a spokesperson.

Shortly after Soichiro Yagami's death, Near begins making moves towards his investigation against Kira. As pressure mounts with Light Yagami's battle with both Near and Mello, Light begins considering the possibility of appointing a spokesperson to not only support him with spreading his ideals but to rally public support against his rivals.

Hitoshi Demegawa[]

Hitoshi Demegawa is Light's first choice of a spokesperson primarily due to his history with Sakura TV earlier in the Kira investigation as well as Demegawa's history as Kira supporter. However, Demegawa proves to be an unsuitable candidate especially after his avarice and greed begins to permeate into his spokesperson duties. He is eventually killed by Teru Mikami.

Kiyomi Takada[]

Recognizing the continued need for a spokesperson even after Demegawa's death, Mikami appoints NHN news anchor Kiyomi Takada to serve as Kira's new spokesperson. Her ideals are evidently much more aligned with Light and Mikami, and she proves to be a suitable candidate for Kira's spokesperson. However, after she is kidnapped by Mello, Light kills Takada and leaves Kira without a spokesperson for the remainder of Light's reign.
