1) How important is it for the plot to keep the identity of the Light members a secret? And what lengths do you go to to enforce it? I mean, when you put a dome-shaped figure speaking with a thick French accent, you are just begging for it... :)

2) Is the mystery of their identities something conceived specifically for the less comic-savvy target demographics?

3) Is the anonymity of each member equally important as of the rest, or are some more important to the plot than others?

I must say that I quite enjoy this trope. It's quite exiting. But it's been only 10 episodes, and fans have figured out 6 out of 7 members of the group. (Personally I had guessed 5 -- good job with L-3. I didn't see it coming, somehow. Mark Rolston's cadence in "Targets" was different from "Fireworks," which totally blindsided me).

1. We wanted to play fair and offer hints without being definitive - until episode 114.

2. Both, I guess.

3. Nope.
