The device was dropped to Earth by a Death God (shinigami) named Ryuk for his own amusement.
The actual Death Note item grants its user the ability to kill anyone whose face they have seen, by writing the victim's name in the notebook. Once charged with this enormous power, Light attempts to rid the world of evil, but just ask anyone that's ever tried to do this, cleansing the world of evil is no easy task...
