Gelus (pronouced Jealous) is a Shinigami (God of Death) appearing in the anime Death Note. He gave his life to protect Misa Amane. He was voiced by Kenichi Matsuyama in the Japanese anime and Michael Dobson in the English dubbed version.


He is a small, doll-like Shinigami whose appearance suggests that he was poorly sewn together from mismatched fabric. He only has one eye, despite having two eye sockets.


Gelus died because he'd fallen in love with Misa Amane. On Misa's final day, he and another shinigami, Rem watch what happens. Before the man can kill her, Gelus uses his Death Note to kill Misa's destined murderer, against Rem's protests. He drops his pen and start crying, as his eye disappears and he disintegrates. Gelus extended Misa's lifespan, and was reduced to a pile of dust as punishment, leaving behind only his Death Note. Rem delivers his Death Note to Misa because it was her that he saved as she thinks that was his final wish.
