Loid is a man of unknown age with short, disheveled blond hair, blue eyes, and light skin. His hair is often slicked backed to varying degrees, depending on the occasion. He typically wears a suit and tie with a lapel pin.
As a spy, his personality is very cold and efficient for his job, doing whatever it takes to complete the mission, from dating his target's daughter to becoming a father. However, he is shown to have a kind personality as shown when he rescued Anya Forger, even risking his identity as a spy.
Loid's past as a powerless war orphan, feeling despair and isolation, has seemingly stuck with him into his adult years and becomes his motivation as a spy to create a world where children wouldn't have to cry. He sincerely empathizes with Yor Briar about sacrificing themselves for the sake of others and their beliefs, becoming the deciding factor for Yor's decision to marry him.
Twilight has discarded everything about his past in order to work for the country of Westalis in opposition to the country of Ostania. Hence, he has no real name. His newest and most important mission, Operation Strix, requires him to investigate a paranoid politician, Donovan Desmond, who only comes out in public for his son's elite school reunions. To infiltrate the school, Twilight has to marry and have a child in seven days, in time for the Eden Academy entrance exam. Twilight accepts this as the mission will maintain peace between the two countries and benefit the whole world if it succeeds. He then adopts Anya Forger and "marries" Yor Briar, while legally going by the name "Loid Forger" as a psychiatrist.
Not much is known about his life, not even his real name or age. It is shown that he was a war orphan when he was a child and then eventually became the spy known as Twilight.

Loid is a spy with extraordinary combat, memory, and information processing capabilities. He uses various faces and names for each mission, though he is generally known by his code name, "Twilight." To be able to execute his current mission, he is required to have a "child" enrolled in a prestigious school in which one of its admission qualifications is that "both parents are present," hence why he created a camouflaged family with Anya and Yor.
