Wedy (ウエディ, Uedi) is a professional catburglar under the employment of L.
Wedy has shoulder-length blonde hair and a curvy figure. She wears sunglasses and bare-shouldered tops with long black leather pants and sometimes a leather suit. She is usually seen smoking cigarettes.
The second daughter in the Kenwood family, Wedy is also an expert with surveillance. She installs bugs in the Yotsuba Group's meeting room to secretly eavesdrop on the group's weekly meetings. She does the same for Kyosuke Higuchi's various cars, allowing the team to watch his desperate attempts to kill Touta Matsuda. After L's death, Light Yagami writes her name into the Death Note. She dies on January 10th in a traffic accident in Colorado. In the anime version, she seems to suffer a heart attack while driving her motorcycle, only crashing after dying. Only her name, and not details of her death, is shown written in the Death Note.
According to Takeshi Obata, he drew Wedy as a female model as he did not know what kind of character she would be. He added that Wedy has the "stereotypical female spy look." Obata believes that if he drew Aiber and Wedy to look "a little bit more original," Ohba could have included the characters in a larger role in Death Note.
- Wedy, Matt, Demegawa, Ukita, and Yamanaka are the only characters in the series who smoke, though in the anime, the scene where Ukita smokes is not shown.
- Viz's official English release of Death Note 13: How to Read changes Wedy's real name from "Merrie" to "Mary," and gives her height as 5' 6" instead of 5' 7".
