He loves sweets (especially cakes), and insists that if he does not sit the way he does, his reasoning will drop by 40%. L seems to be sort of a loner, and trusts no one (except Watari of course). L is also a very animated character, his expressions are clearly visible unless he decides not to show them and doesn’t hide his true self behind a mask, like Light does (well at least personality wise).

L is a well-reknown detective who takes cases only if they interest him. In Death Note, there are three main detectives: Coil, Danuve, and L. L later admits that he is all three of the characters, and Watari of course handles all these identities. Interesting enough, under Coil he charges a lot, and under L he is stubborn in taking interesting cases. In either case, after seeing all the killings, L puts himself on the case even before Interpol calls him about it. Interpol calls for his service, and L continues to be on the case. L has a lot of manpower and money behind him, and from with almost no evidence he cleverly narrows down the suspects.
L is also quite dangerous because he is not afraid to die at all, while Light values his life quite a lot, as we see even in Volume 1 as Light says he will not do the shinigami eye exchange. L really is the mirror opposite of Light— though his reasoning capacity is high, it is not that similar. Light and L come to the answers, but in different ways, and also in different scenarios. All in all, L is a character that is lovable till death.
