Halle Lidner (ハル・リド ナー, Haru Ridonā) is a member of the SPK. Like the other members of the SPK, she works under a false name since Kira needs to know a person's real name and face before he can kill them.


Halle Lidner is a tall, slender woman with a fair complexion and golden hair worn in a medium-length cut. Halle's bangs are choppy, going straight across her forehead, and they reach her eyelids. Her eyes are golden-brown.

Halle's appearance is a bit different in the video game, which shows her with slightly darker hair and blue eyes.


Halle Lidner is a former Secret Service and CIA agent who works for Near as part of the SPK, and is the only female member of the organization. She joined the SPK to avenge a close acquaintance who was killed by Kyosuke Higuchi at the time when he acted as Kira. She states that she is on neither Near's nor Mello's side in the competition to capture Kira. Although she ultimately works for Near, she still leaks information to Mello, sometimes at Near's request.

Halle cares for Mello, even trusting him to the point that she lets him hide in her flat. When she arrives at the scene of a fire, she is concerned when she realizes that Mello has died inside the burning vehicle.

Death Note 13: How to Read states that Halle is "an individual thinker" with "first-rate" skills as a bodyguard.

Mello and Lidner when Mello is hiding in her flat.

Halle was chosen over Stephen Gevanni to infiltrate the bodyguard unit that protects Kiyomi Takada, with the purpose to get more information about Kira through her.

In order to attain Takada's trust, Lidner acts out the role of a diligent handler while covertly trying to uncover the connection between Takada and Kira. Her position as a bodyguard of Takada, as well as her beauty, made of her a very popular figure in the media, right behind Takada. In the one-shot chapter set three years after Light's death, it is revealed that she continues to work for Near.

In other mediaEdit


The character Shoko Himura is an amalgamation of several characters including Halle Lidner, Naomi Misora, and Mello. Himura's real name is Halle Lidner, and similar to Lidner, she works with both Near and Mello to help stop Kira.
