Light Yagami is a very intelligent and hard working person. He is naturally talented in many things. He is often quite frustrated with the worlds justice system and finds a means of change. His use of the Death Note makes him become very ruthless and devoid of love. Light grew up with a detective father. He knows the justice system well as well as how the Japanese Task Force, and the people involved, work. He has an advantage over L in this case.
