First Part: Maaike van der KooijEdit
To test the reality of the Death Note Maaike writes down names of country leaders she hates and is shocked to read in the newspapers they really died. Maaike takes action with the Note, killing all bad people in world, just like Light did in Death Note. But then the Dutch government hires in detectives M, V and F to hunt down this new Kira. Suprisingly, V finds information about Maaike quickly. But when she's about to show it to the Dutch government, M sends her a voice message that she's stolen the information and taking action. She keeps her word and, disguised, chases down Maaike in her home in Zaandam together with Dutch police forces. Maaike, who had accepted the Shinigami's Eyes, pierces trough M's disguise and sees her name. But when she's about to write it down, she is killed by a heart attack. M gets her Death Note and sees Kurome, asking her if she knows who killed Maaike. Kurome admits she does not, telling the truth. Later, F claims to be the one who killed her, but it was part of his plan to make V and M believe he was Kira. Actually, he did not know who commited the murder. Shiroi later revealed to have been the Kira all the time.
Before she dies, Maaike tells Kurome to make sure her Death Note is deliverd by Rammie.
Maaike van der Kooij featured as cover model of the first Death Note: Black Mercy manga book.
