Finding no other way to get close to the reclusive politician, "Twilight" builds a rather unconventional family unit: in order to succeed in his mission, he takes the name Loid Forger and marries a woman named Yor. The two adopt Anya, a little girl whom Loid sends to the same school as Desmond's child, in order to spy on him.

But the new spouses have no idea about each other's identities; Yor doesn't know that Loid is a spy, but she hides a secret of her own, as she turns out to be a professional assassin. Unbeknownst to them, their adoptive daughter Anya is a mind-reader, who does not reveal her ability for fear of being abandoned. Can such a family ever work?

At the time of writing, the real name of Loid Forger has not been clarified in the Spy x Family anime or manga. "Twilight" got rid of any past documentation, so his true name cannot be found through any conventional means.

His status as a war orphan and the fact that he has no memory of his mother or other family members make it even harder to trace his roots, suggesting we might never find Loid's true name, if he ever had one. Of course, with the Spy x Family manga still ongoing, a revelation could still come about and change everything. But even then, can you ever trust any information about Loid Forger and his unconventional found family?
