Death Note - Light Meets Ryuk:

Ryuk is Shinigami - which literally translates into "death god". When you are creating your own Ryuk look - keep in mind that there are no physical differences between male and female Shinigami.

As death god's, it is the Shinigami's purpose to end life and all must possess at least one Death Note, which is a requirement for them to prolong their own lives.
