Appearance and PersonalityEdit

Light is a tall middle-aged man with short slicked back hair and a chevron mustache. He wears a dark-colored suit with a mandarin collar. Light is very ambitious and good at controlling his emotions. He strives to climb to the top of the Mafia Community by using his daughter's precognitive ability[1]. Due to that, he gives her almost everything she wants and is paranoid about losing her.


Light's family was an insignificant Mafia family but thanks to using his daughter's ability to predict future, he gained favor with high-ranking members of the Mafia, including even the Ten Dons, and has become a powerful Mafia boss himself. In order to coax her to tell the fortunes of his associates and superiors, he has been lavishing her with gifts. Because of the fear that the people who were replaced by him as he rose through the ranks will retaliate by attacking her, he has hired a number of bodyguards to protect her, one of whom is Kurapika.


Yorknew City arcEdit

On August 31st, after arriving in Yorknew City to attend the Mafia's underground auction that is going to take place the next day, Neon calls Light, telling him she is not going to tell the fortunes of his associates. But he successfully persuades her by promising to buy her something. Later, Dalzollene, Neon's head bodyguard, informs him by phone that her predictions suggest those who will attend the auction will be in danger. Light orders him to stop Neon from going to the auction and to put in the winning bids for the items she wants at all costs[2].
