Name: Daruku (Dark)
Personality: Daruku is the mastermind behind the bet. He takes a strange amount of pleasure in killing humans and has killed many more than necessary. He has killed enough to frighten even the other death gods. It is rumored that he managed to cause a war in the human world and used it as an excuse to kill thousands of humans, writing their cause of death as “shot to death by enemy soldiers” so that the inordinate amount of deaths would be completely unnoticed by the human population. It is rumored that he has secured himself over 5,000 years of life from writing names in his death note, yet he continues writing names on a steady basis. Because of this, he is usually avoided and doesn’t often participate in their mindless gambling. He witnessed the original events of the kira case and decided that it might be fun to try it again with even more death notes so that he could witness even greater carnage. However, he couldn’t gather the death notes himself and decided that he could convince a few other shinigami to participate by turning it into a bet, offering a year supply of apples if Ryuk were to win and his own death note if the others won. They in turn had to wager their own death notes. The bet was that they would all give their death notes to the best human they could find and seeing whose would last the longest. The only Shinigami on Earth who isn’t actually involved in the bet is Shidoh, as his presence there is accidental and he wouldn’t be there if he didn’t drop his death note (again).
Personality: Rather lazy. Though he is the only shinigami we have seen carrying around a scythe, he has never actually used it. He could care less regardless of what happens and only participates in the bet with the others so that there is something to do. Any explanation is too troublesome for him to consider, so he wouldn’t bother explaining much to whoever he gave his death note to. He carries no feelings for humans and is prone to complaining.
Personality: A compulsive gambler as well as a pervert. He is more likely than the others to hand off his death note to the cutest girl he can find, though he wouldn’t mind winning the bet. He would likely abandon the person he gave his death note to at any opportunity to go and check out any nearby girls or to haunt the nearest girls’ locker room. Gook despises the rule that forbids him from what he would most like to do with a human girl. He is as likely as Ryuk to become easily addicted to apples, as his love for earthly pleasures exceeds that of the other shinigami.
Name: Armonia Jastin Beyondllemason
Personality: Very mysterious and has a bit of a fascination with jewels. He is known to be a strict supporter of following the rules and would never break them or allow others to do so, as he keeps the scrolls of the rules with him (and was the one who originally showed them to Shidoh). Unlike the others, he isn’t completely heartless and is the only one of the group who would seem capable of actually developing feelings for a human, though not too likely. He is participating in the bet for fun as well as to make sure no rules are broken. He could care less about winning, though.
Personality: Kind of a coward. Soft-spoken, clumsy, and a little bit stupid, he is willing to let humans order him around if they scare him enough. Ryuk managed to steal his death note in the first Kira case. Has a love of chocolate.
Name: Ryuuku (Ryuk)
Personality: Has a hatred for the shinigami world, as nothing ever seems to happen there. This leads him to his visits to the human world. He refuses to get involved with any Kiras any further than giving them the death note, but enjoys conversing with them and finds the struggles they go through quite funny, often letting out an evil cackle when things seem to be taking a turn for the worse. Obviously, he has an addiction to apples, which he was never able to completely break, eventually forcing him to head back to the human world.
