!!Vorona
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/msumq_8781.png

A former [[TheMafiya Mafiya]] assassin and BloodKnight that fled to Ikebukuro, taking a truck filled with guns along with her.
----
* AbsoluteCleavage: For some reason, [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/0803f5520df7676030d36fe498ea89d4_2235.jpg she always keeps her biker suit unzipped nearly all the way down...]]
* ArchnemesisDad: Vorona and her father never did get along very well, but after stealing a truckload of illegal weapons from him, [[IHaveNoSon their relationship has turned ugly]].
-->'''Vorona:''' I fled. Parental ties, already severed. Next meeting, one of us will die. Pity, pity.
* AxCrazy
* {{Badass}}: Vorona, upon first meeting Shizuo, immediately decided she had to fight him ó so she stabbed him with a knife and shot him with a rifle. Shizuo threw her own motorcycle at her simply because her stabbing him reminded him of Izaya.
** BadassBookworm: A literal example. She is a trained assassin but she also possesses an extensive knowledge and her favorite activity happens to be reading books.
* BecomingTheMask: Seems to be heading in this direction when [[spoiler: she actually intends to break Shizuo out of jail before bumping into Izaya and attacking him.]]
* BikerBabe: Even pictured with Celty [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Bikers_5240.png here]].
* BlondesAreEvil: Not an outright villain, but she gets pretty close, considering her lack of compunction for murdering people in cold blood.
* BloodKnight: As a defense mechanism, Vorona is obsessed with killing strong people in order to prove her own strength, and to confirm human fragility by seeing how easy it is to take their lives. It's the reason she becomes Shizuo's kohai.
* BreakTheHaughty: Her disgraceful loss to Akabayashi causes this. Prior to that, she was confident enough in her combat abilities to challenge insanely strong opponents, and then attempt to kill them to test human fragility. She wises up a little afterward.
* BrokenAce: Often described as being incredibly beautiful and excelling at everything she does. Her only major flaw is her obsessive impulse to destroy strong people.
--> '''Drakon:''' Vorona... has more loveliness, more intellect, and more knowledge at her disposal than anyone else in this place... at the same time, though, she's also an unstoppable and incorrigible fighting addict.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Shows signs of this. She definitely wasn't too happy when Orihara twins hanged themselves onto Shizuo's arms.
* CreepyMonotone: Most of the time. Only when something completely unexpected [[NotSoStoic surprises her]], like seeing a girl draw a sword from within her body or a man throw a car at her, does she actually break her usual tone of voice.
* CuteBookworm: Though more violent than the usual example.
* DarkActionGirl
* DangerousDeserter: Not helped by the fact that she has a natural inclination towards AxCrazy.
* DumbBlonde: Inverted. She sounds like a human {{Wikipedia}} when she's not itching to destroy something.
* EmotionlessGirl: Is usually deadpan, but not always, since she gets really excited when she's about to fight a strong opponent.
* FreakyIsCool: She reacts with sheer delight at the prospect of fighting monsters like Celty, Anri, and Shizuo in Ikebukuro.
* GracefulLoser
* HarmfulToMinors: When she killed a robber at the young age of ten. The experience left her slightly traumatized, and [[FreudianExcuse resulted in her searching for more opponents]] in order to continue testing the fragility of human mortality.
* IcyBlueEyes
* InLoveWithYourCarnage: Her reaction when first encountering Shizuo could be described as, er, [[SexIsViolence rather orgasmic]].
* IntelligenceEqualsIsolation: Spent her childhood alone because of her father's infamy, which had caused other children to avoid her. Not that she minded though, since she preferred reading textbooks over socializing.
* [[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter Mad Mafioso's Beautiful Daughter]]
* MeaningfulName: Her code name means 'crow' in Russian [[note]]As in like a crow - intelligent, but for some reason loves rotten meat (metaphorically speaking).[[/note]]
* OddCouple: With [[CloudCuckooLander Slon]].
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Not even her father calls her by her real name.
* PeekABangs
* PsychoForHire
* PsychopathicWomanchild: Lingerin remarks that while Vorona is physically mature, she is still a child mentally.
* PetTheDog: Her loud protests when she was told that Awakusu-kai were going to kill Slon show that she isn't that heartless.
* RazorFloss: She uses steel threads to [[OffWithHisHead behead people]] in an ambush, although it doesn't quite work when she tries it on [[HeadlessHorseman someone who's already missing one]].
* SempaiKohai: This happens when Vorona starts hanging around with Shizuo and Tom, though a bit one-sided. Shizuo (who doesn't recognize her as the person who stabbed him earlier because she was wearing a helmet) decides, quite happily, that she gets to be his Kouhai. Vorona agrees, [[LivingWithTheVillain while plotting to destroy him]].
* ShipTease: [[http://i55.tinypic.com/jre5c0.jpg With Shizuo.]]
* SpockSpeak[=/=]StrangeSyntaxSpeaker: Her intonation of the Japanese language is flawless, but her word choice and syntax can get really weird. Averted in Russian though, which she speaks normally.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: As mentioned earlier, Vorona's unzipped uniform is utterly impractical for riding a motorcycle, and is probably meant as pure {{Fanservice}}.
* SweetTooth: Confessed herself as one after her answer to Shizuo's question about Siberia [[WikiWalk somehow turned into a monologue about various sorts of cakes]].
* {{Tykebomb}}: After she killed her first man [[TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior at age 10]], her father had [[spoiler:Simon]] train her to become a killing machine.
* XMarksTheHero: She's not a hero, but she's got some sort of cross-like scar on her... [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/durara_923.jpg well, see for yourself.]]
* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: Vorona has never loved a single human being, not even herself. The closest thing to 'love' she's ever felt is the love of [[BloodKnight facing a worthy opponent and then killing them]].
* WellDoneDaughterGirl: Subverted. The first time her father showed any sort of outward affection for her was after she killed a burglar that broke into their house. She didn't realize it was because he was relieved that she was unharmed from the attack, so she used it to rationalize and justify her inherent murderous impulses. By the time she figured out the truth, she simply didn't care.
-->'''Vorona:''' Why do I keep doing this even though I know Father will not praise me? Not because I want to be loved. It's very simple. The happiness. The delight. The pleasure. The bliss. The ecstasy.

!!Slon

Vorona's longtime partner in crime. He ran away with her to Japan, where they were temporarily hired as mercenaries in Ikebukuro for Izaya and Yadogiri Jinnai. He is an enormous man with tremendous strength, although he isn't very intelligent.
----
* TheBigGuy
* CloudCuckooLander
* ConstantlyCurious: Slon is just full of stupid, irrelevant questions.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Slon may be an idiot, but [[spoiler:when Slon's hired to kill some men among the {{Yakuza}}'s ranks, the end result is grisly enough that ''Shizuo'' nearly vomits at the sight of it -- and promptly gets blamed for murders himself.]]
* DumbMuscle
* HiddenDepths: He can speak perfectly fluent Japanese, despite his idiocy. Even Vorona is surprised.
* HuskyRusskie
* MeaningfulName: Slon means "elephant" in Russian.
* [[spoiler:TheMole]]: [[spoiler:Possibly for Izaya. According to Mika, he has closer ties to him than he does to Vorona.]]
* MundaneMadeAwesome: MOUSE CLICKS OF FIRE!: "I'm not moving an inch until I've solved the mystery of the male nipples! This is my war!!"
* NotListeningToMeAreYou: "Am I... being ignored?"
* OddCouple: With Vorona.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname
* SeriousBusiness: Every. Single. Question. He. Asks.

!!Chikage Rokujo
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chikage_8813.JPG

Leader of the Toramaru biker gang who comes to Ikebukuro after some members of his gang were allegedly attacked by the Dollars and involved innocents in the crossfire. Also a shameless manwhore, and rarely seen without multiple women hanging off of him.
----
* BadassBiker: Leader of a [[SubculturesInJapan bosozoku]] gang.
* BandagedFace
* BerserkButton: Hurt a girl in any way and he will likely [[GroinAttack kick you in the nuts]].
* BiggusDickus: Implied by one of his girlfriends.
* TheCasanova
** ChivalrousPervert: Gerneral horniness and complete irreverence for monogamy aside, Chikage is careful to make sure that he (or anyone else, for that matter) doesn't hurt women.
* CavalierCompetitor: Very laid-back about fights even in his quest for vengeance.
* DefiantToTheEnd: In his fight against Shizuo
-->'''Shizuo:''' Yeah. When I was about to punch him a fifth time he said "Ah, and I have girls willing to tend to me when Iím in the hospital bed. Are you jealous now?" ...Well, something like that. His tooth broke so I wasnít able to hear very well.
* TheDulcineaEffect
* EthicalSlut
* FearlessFool: His very first order of business upon entering Ikebukuro? Picking a fight with Shizuo, hence the bandages.
* FriendlyEnemy: Despite a grudge over injuring some of Chikage's Toramaru pals (which is why he picked a fight in the first place), both Chikage and Shizuo are both tremendously civil about the affair. Shizuo even dropped him off at Shinra's after handing him his ass.
-->'''Chikage:''' Hell if that wasn't the most enjoyable fight I've had in ''years''. He was nicer than I expected, too.
* GracefulLoser: Not at all annoyed at getting the crap beaten out of him by Shizuo. He thought it was kinda fun, actually.
* HaremSeeker: And a [[SexyManInstantHarem successful one at that]].
* MadeOfIron: Shizuo notes that it took him four punches to finally render him unconscious.
* NiceHat
* SexyManInstantHarem: Is rarely seen without his many girlfriends.
* WifeBasherBasher: Do not hurt women in Chikage's presence.
* WouldntHitAGirl: And he does ''not'' take kindly to those that do.

!!Emilia Kishitani

A researcher from Nebula, and Shingen's new wife.
----
* EloquentInMyNativeTongue: Presumably.
* ForeignFanservice
* FunnyForeigner
* FunWithForeignLanguages: Emilia's grammar is noted to be the ''worst'' of all the foreigners in the series, thus far, leading to comically inept and downright strange sentence constructions.
* GreenEyes
* HotScientist
* JapanesePronouns: Amusingly, she uses ''Shousei'' as her personal pronun.
* LethalChef: She gets a -20% rating for her cooking!

!!Aoba Kuronuma
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aoba_2730.jpg

An [[OlderThanTheyLook unusually young-looking]] freshman that quickly latches onto Mikado. [[spoiler:Also the leader of Blue Square and Mikado's second-in-command.]]
----
* [[spoiler: [[AbusiveParents Abusive Brother:]] Subverted when it comes to his mother. However, his brother is the one that beat him up regularly to the point that he just snapped. His father isn't even mentioned...]]
* [[spoiler: BitchInSheepsClothing]]
* [[spoiler: BreakTheCutie: In his childhood, he was regularly assaulted by his brother. Sure he was a {{Creepy Child}} but he didn't retaliate until something made him snap and burn his brother's room down. He then fakes innocence and throws his brother in jail.]]
* [[spoiler: CainAndAbel: With his brother Ran Izumi. Although he can act like the "Cain" most of the time, he really is the "Abel" in the relationship.]]
* [[spoiler: TheChessmaster: Fancies himself this]]
* [[spoiler: CuteAndPsycho: And he's getting close to becoming {{Yandere}}.]]
* [[spoiler: CreepyChild: Not technically a child, but from what we see of his childhood, he definitely counts. [[ManipulativeBastard Just ask his brother...or Mikado...or Masaomi..]]]]
* [[spoiler: DeliberatelyCuteChild: Well, teenage to be exact.]]
* [[spoiler: TheDragon: To Mikado.]]
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Mikado claims that if he were to dress up in a girl's uniform, no one would find out he was a male unless he spoke. Of course, this has to do with his childish looks.
* [[ThreateningShark Everything Is Even Worse With Sharks]]: Not only is it his favorite animal [[spoiler: but he often refers the Blue Squares as a group of sharks. Doesn't help that the group is forced to wear a shark hat.]]
* {{Expy}}: Basically a teenage version of [[LightNovel/{{Baccano}} Czeslaw]] [[DeliberatelyCuteChild Meyer]].
* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler: His brother constantly beating him as a kid messed him up psychologically that he became the ManipulativeBastard he is today.]]
* [[spoiler:{{GIRL}}: It's hinted that he is the new "female" member of the chatroom, "Pure Water 100%".]]
* HairColorDissonance: He has black hair but many people draw him with blue hair instead.
* [[spoiler: InLoveWithYourCarnage: His interests/opinion in Mikado is taken up to eleven [[TooKinkyToTorture after Mikado stabs him with the pen.]] It doesn't help that he admitted to Izaya that he was a masochist and that he was looking for his special someone to be his sadist in the relationship.]]
* [[spoiler: TheManBehindTheMan: The real leader of the Blue Squares.]]
* [[spoiler: ManipulativeBastard: He's described as a younger version of Izaya.]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: Aoba's described as looking like a middle (or even ''elementary'') school student.
* SempaiKouhai: Is Mikado and Anri's junior in school. Mostly just applies to Mikado, though.
* ShipTease: The kiss with [[spoiler: Izaya's sisters]] of all people.
* [[spoiler: TheStarscream: He's plotting on overthrowing Mikado and taking control of the Dollars.]]
* StepfordSmiler: [[spoiler: Type 3.]]
* [[spoiler: StrawNihilist: Unlike Izaya, he hates humans with a passion. From what his brother did to him, it's kind of given why he hates humans.]]
* SurroundedByIdiots: Is generally not impressed by the intelligence of his fellow [[spoiler:Blue Square]] members.
-->'''Gin:''' Let me see - after an awesome fight, [[DefeatMeansFriendship they realized]] ThePowerOfFriendship, and then a bunch of weird guys came and used hostages but ''bang!'' -- Light was everywhere, and we got a big fire too!
-->'''Aoba:''' ...I was a fool to send you on a spying mission.
* [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend They Are Not My Girlfriends]]: When members of [[spoiler:Blue Square]] refer to Mairu and Kururi as such.
* [[spoiler: [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did it Have to be Fire?]]: Aoba has a huge fear of fire. However, this works to his advantage as he's able to frame his brother for arson by using this fear. He plays this straight though after the incident though.]]

!!Akane Awakusu
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/awakusu_akane_4712.jpg

The ten-year old daughter of Mikiya and granddaughter of Dougen, who is the current head of the [[{{Yakuza}} Awakusu-kai]]. After learning on the Internet that her family is running a criminal organization, she became heartbroken and ran away from home. She soon met Izaya, who tricked her into thinking Shizuo was an enemy, causing her to try and kill him with a modified stun gun. Afterward, when Shizuo rescued her from kidnappers, she realized he wasn't a bad person and befriended him.
----
* BlindingBangs: Her eyes aren't actually hidden by the bangs, but they're cut in a longish style that gives this impression at times.
* CheerfulChild: Subverted. Her cute, innocent appearance was only used as a guise to get near Shizuo and zap him with her stun gun.
* CreepyChild: Possibly, judging by her TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior.
* DaddysLittleVillain: Inverted; she is horrified by her discovery of her family's criminal roots.
* DeliberatelyCuteChild
* DistressedDamsel
* FallenPrincess: [[TheRunaway Self-imposed]], after discovering her father was the head of a Yakuza organization and that pretty much every friend she has was really a terrified YesMan.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Tiny Girl to Shizuo's Huge Guy. Justified, considering their respective ages, though.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With Shizuo, and also, Akabayashi.
* MafiaPrincess
* MoralityPet: To Shizuo.
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: A mild version, but Akane wants to beat Shizuo and is currently attending the same gym as Mairu in order to learn how to fight properly. This is also the reason why she has a rivalry with Vorona.
* TheRival: To Vorona. They're both vying over Shizuo for different reasons (i.e. either to kill or defeat him).
* TheRunaway: After discovering her father is in the {{Yakuza}}.
* TechnicallyASmile: As Shizuo notices just before she tries to kill him.
-->''He couldn't help but notice the way this kid was smiling. It was innocent alright, but there was also something that reminded one of a kid stomping on ants for fun...''
* TokenMiniMoe: The only prepubescent in the entire cast, consisting of teenagers, adults, and one immortal.
* TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior: The first thing she says to Shizuo is "Die!" and then she tries to electrocute him while smiling sweetly.
* UnwittingPawn: Another victim of Izaya's manipulation.
* YamatoNadeshiko: Her demure, obedient personality contrasts with the strength of will to defy her mafia dad and live on her own. What's more: someone like her attacking someone like Shizuo either has tremendous guts or a death wish and she definitely isn't the latter.

!!Akabayashi

A high-ranking executive of the Awakusu-kai. Akabayashi is easily recognizable by his gaudy sense of fashion and the large scar running through his right eye. He is known as the Red Demon of the Awakusu and has ties to Anri.
----
* {{Badass}}
** BadassInANiceSuit: Comes with the job. He likes wearing gaudy suits, though.
** BadassNormal: Considered a superb street fighter and was able to knock out Vorona without breaking a sweat. [[spoiler:On top of that, he is the only other human being, besides Shizuo, who was able to resist becoming one of Saika's children, and even gouged out his own eye.]]
** HandicappedBadass: He lost an eye, but is still in top-notch fighting form.
* TheBerserker: His backstory. He was a violent man in the past, but [[spoiler:after he met the Slasher (who was Anri's mom at the time), and went through a series of experiences, he calmed down and became relatively gentler.]]
* CaneFu: Carries around an ornamented cane for this purpose, since he doesn't need it for walking.
* CoolOldGuy: Described as somewhere in his thirties to forties, but he is still one helluva good fighter.
* CoolShades
* DefectorFromDecadence: [[spoiler:After discovering his former boss was behind the drug-induced insanity of Sayaka's husband, which eventually led to her suicide, Akabayashi abandoned his duties as a bodyguard and let his boss get killed by a hit man. He then joined the Awakusu organization to watch over Anri Sonohara.]]
* EvilRedhead: Subverted. Although he has red hair and is involved with a criminal organization, he's not only chivalrous but hates drug dealing and prostitution. He's also friendly to children.
* EyeScream: [[spoiler:When Sayaka slashed him in the eye with Saika, he plucked it out before the sword could possess him.]]
* FriendToAllChildren: He is fond of kids, and gets along pretty well with them.
* GeniusBruiser: He's almost as tall as [[TheBrute Aozaki]] is, but also intelligent and tech-savvy.
* GlassEye: After [[EyeScream losing his right eye]], he replaces it with this.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Has a scar over his right eye.
* InLoveWithYourCarnage: He fell in love with [[spoiler:Sayaka, after she had pierced his right eyeball with her katana, because he was impressed by her swordsmanship.]]
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With Anri, who feels like a younger sister to him. Akane counts as well.
* LastNameBasis: His first name is unknown.
* ManChild: Subverted. His online handle is Gaki (which means brat), and he sometimes uses "Oi-chan" to talk about himself, but this isn't his true behavior, and it's all part of a [[ObfuscatingStupidity disarming act]].
* MeaningfulName: Part of his last name means red, which inspired his RedBaron title.
* MistakenForPedophile[=/=]MistakenForGay: Since he has no wife or girlfriend at his age, and because he is so good with kids, he gets labeled as one or the other, though he denies it.
* MoralityPet: Anri. Anything involving her instantly becomes a personal concern for him, rather than work-related.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Often acts like he doesn't have a care in the world. Subverted because other members of the Awakusu-kai, like Shiki, distrust him for this very reason, and think he's hiding his true motives behind the facade.
* ParentalSubstitute: For Anri, perhaps. After she became an orphan, he helped her sell the antiques in her parent's store to provide for her until she reaches eighteen.
* PerpetualSmiler: Nearly always seen with a smile on his face, even as he is [[DissonantSerenity calmly beating up another man]]. Overlaps with CheshireCatGrin sometimes.
* RedBaron: Nicknamed Awakusu's Red Demon.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Akabayashi is usually portrayed with scarlet irises ([[CurtainsMatchTheWindow to match the hair]]) in fan works. His canon eye color hasn't been confirmed yet.
* RedOniBlueOni: The Red Demon to Aozaki's Blue Demon.
* SunglassesAtNight: He wears colorful, expensive-looking sunglasses nearly all the time.
* WouldntHitAGirl: Played straight when he fought Vorona. While he defeats her effortlessly, he doesn't actually hurt her, which makes her loss even more crushing.
* {{Yakuza}}

!!Aozaki

Another executive of the Awakusu-kai, he is known as the Blue Demon of the organization. Not much else is known about him, except that he has a rivalry with Akabayashi and is really big.
----
* BadassInANiceSuit: The suit he wears is apparently tailored to his height, and makes him look even more formidable.
* TheBrute: Aozaki is described as quite tall at 190cm, and looks pretty intimidating thanks to his broad shoulders and immense build. Naturally, this gives him an advantage while fighting.
* BuffySpeak: Occasionally lapses into this.
* LastNameBasis: His first name is unknown.
* MeaningfulName: Part of his last name means blue, which inspired his RedBaron title.
* NewMediaAreEvil: Has a low opinion on new technology in general, unlike tech-savvy Akabayashi, meaning he makes no effort to keep himself updated.
* RedBaron: Nicknamed Awakusu's Blue Demon.
* RedOniBlueOni: The Blue Demon to Akabayashi's Red Demon.
* TheRival: Dislikes Akayabashi, and holds a longstanding rivalry with him.
* {{Yakuza}}

!!Eijirou Sharaku

Mairu's martial arts mentor. A lazy thirty year old man who is Mikage's older brother and has a grudge against Izaya. He is also a bit of a pervert.
----
* BrilliantButLazy
* ChivalrousPervert
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass
* DynamicEntry: Tries one against Izaya.
* KnightTemplarBigBrother: Tries to kill Izaya whenever he sees him for supposedly causing Mikage to drop out of high school.
* RevengeByProxy: Defied. Izaya invokes the trope by asking him why he isn't taking out his vendetta against him on one of his sisters, which Eijirou refuses to do because they're not like him, and Mairu is also one of his esteemed students.
* SeenItAll: His tired eyes and perpetually bored expression makes him appear this way.
* TranquilFury
* TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty: When he attacks Izaya [[InTheBack from behind]] on a public road.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: His relationship with his sister is like this.

!!Mikage Sharaku

A character who was introduced in volume 9 as one of Izaya's followers for his new "army." For some reason, she dropped out of high school. She is also a mentor at the gym that Mairu regularly attends, along with her brother Eijirou.
----
* AmazonianBeauty
* BareYourMidriff
* DynamicEntry: When she sends Eijirou sprawling to the ground with a roundhouse kick from behind.
* SexyMentor
* {{Stripperiffic}}
* {{Tomboy}}
* YoungestChildWins: The youngest of the Sharaku family, yet she has better martial arts skills than her older brother.
* YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry: Unfortunately for him, Eijirou still manages to provoke her into a fit of rage.

!!Earthworm

A mysterious woman who works for the "Owner" of the Amphisbaena. She is incredibly sadistic and revels in torturing people, leaving them entirely at her mercy. She often begins with sensory deprivation by covering their heads with linen bags. Her current victim appears to be Izaya Orihara.
----
* AbsoluteCleavage: Her [[LittleBlackDress slinky black gown]] barely leaves enough to the imagination.
* AndYourLittleDogToo: She orders her lackeys to kidnap Izaya's younger sisters and [[ForcedToWatch force him to hear their screams]] as they get tortured, too.
* BlondesAreEvil
* EvilGloating: She seems to like taunting her victims and keeps talking to them even if they don't respond.
* GigglingVillain
* LackOfEmpathy
* [[spoiler:LovingAShadow]]: [[spoiler:Her obsession with Nakura, AKA "Owner".]]
* ManipulativeBitch
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: "Earthworm" is most likely a code name.
* OperaGloves
* PsychoForHire: A major case. She takes great pleasure in torturing others and was probably hired because she enjoys it so damn much. The moment when she has someone at her complete mercy is described as a feeling of [[EvilFeelsGood pure bliss, and the only time when she feels truly alive.]]
* [[PsychopathicManchild Psychopathic Womanchild]]: She's [[VagueAge somewhere in her twenties]], but sounds like a teenager and acts disturbingly childish while [[ColdBloodedTorture torturing information out of someone]].
* {{Smug Snake}}: She thinks she knows everything about Izaya including the incident in middle school where Izaya apparently stabbed Shinra. [[spoiler: She doesn't know what really happened if she thinks this though because Shinra took the knife wound for Izaya.]]
* TortureTechnician: Izaya isn't the first person who's been subjected to her brand of torture -- she's taken apart quite a few people before him, too. She is said to use her imagination to invent all sorts of new ways to make them suffer.
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler: While Izaya spectacularly trolls her.]]
* WomanInBlack: Played straight.

!! Yodogiri Jinnai

The former head of Yodogiri Shining Corporation. Not much is known about him. [[spoiler: He is responsible, amongst other things, for the incident with Hijiribe Ruri and Izaya's stabbing. There are hints that he might be the series' BigBad.]]
----
* [[spoiler: BiggerBad]]: Possibly.
* [[spoiler: DiabolicalMastermind]]: Implied.
* EvilOldFolks
* [[spoiler: EvilerThanThou: If Shingen is to be believed, Yodogiri is even worse than Izaya.]]
* FauxAffablyEvil: [[spoiler: During his telephone talk with Izaya he remained remarkably polite. Only to stab him a second later.]]
* KnowledgeBroker: He was the one who gave the information about Dullahans to Shingen.
* ManipulativeBastard
* MasterOfDisguise
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: [[spoiler: He gave one to Izaya right after stabbing him with a knife.]]
-->'''Yodogiri Jinnai:''' Honestly, you need to stop that. A kid needs to learn to play only in his little garden...in Ikebukuro. Because If he runs outside, you never know when he might get hurt!

!!Lingerin Douglanikov

The leader of the weapon dealing organization that Vorona and Slon used to be part of. Gets along well with Drakon, Vorona's father, despite suffering frequent insults of his intelligence.
----
* BadAss: When you can take down at least thirty seven armored and fully armed illegal immigrants with nothing but your bare hands(Which happen to be stuck in a pair of jars), you are undeniably badass.
* BrainsAndBrawn: The brawn to Drakon's brains.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: When first shown, his hands are stuck inside jars, due to holding onto the pistols inside. He seems utterly baffled as to how to get them out. But when the previously mentioned illegal immigrants rudely interrupt his conversation with Drakon, he apparently beats them to death with his feet and jarred hands.
* DumbMuscle: See above. He only gets the jars off when an enemy that was pretending to be dead attacks him, and he fires the pistol in the jar on instinct, killing the immigrant and breaking the jar. He was about to shoot the jar off his other hand before Drakon pointed out the detail that his hand was still in it.
* HuskyRusskie
* TheMafiya
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: With Drakon.

!! The Suicidal Girl

A young girl who formed a suicide pact with Izaya but was tricked by him.
----
* BestServedCold: [[spoiler: She waited a whole year for a chance to get her revenge.]]
* ChekhovsGunman: She appears in the first novel [[spoiler: then she reappears in the seventh with the intention of murdering Izaya in the hospital.]]
* DisproportionateRetribution: [[spoiler: Even though Izaya gave her a BreakingSpeech, drugged and stuffed her into a suitcase, still wanting to kill him for it seems a little harsh.]]
* FanNickname: Since her name was never revealed (see below), most fans simply refer to her as the Suicidal Girl.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler: She was intending to kill Izaya. Too bad that she merely restored his faith in humankind.]]
* NoNameGiven: At least not in the novel.
** [[spoiler: Has one now as of Vol. 11: Mamiya Narumi ]]
* SuicidePact: Can you guess with who?
