Sochiro Yagami
I have a responsibility as a parent and as the chief of police.
~ Soichiro Yagami
Listen up Light, Kira is evil. That is the truth. But lately, I've been starting to think of it like this, the real evil is the power to kill people. Any human who came across this power is cursed. No matter how you use it, you can never build true happiness above the death of others.
