    Vorona 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/274325.jpg
Voiced by: M.A.O. (Japanese), Brina Palencia (English)

A former Mafiya assassin and Blood Knight that fled to Ikebukuro, taking a truck filled with guns along with her.


  • Absolute Cleavage: For some reason, she always keeps her biker suit unzipped nearly all the way down... This only applies to the novel though. Most of the time, the anime has her biker suit completely zipped up.
  • Action Girl: Vorona, upon first meeting Shizuo, immediately decided she had to fight him — 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.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: She is described as having blue eyes in the novel. In the anime they're closer to Purple Eyes.
  • Archnemesis Dad: Vorona and her father never did get along very well, but after stealing a truckload of illegal weapons from him, their relationship has turned ugly.
    Vorona: I fled. Parental ties, already severed. Next meeting, one of us will die. Pity, pity.
  • Badass Bookworm: She is a trained assassin but she also possesses an extensive knowledge and her favorite activity happens to be reading books.
  • Becoming the Mask: Seems to be heading in this direction when she actually intends to break Shizuo out of jail before bumping into Izaya and attacking him. Likewise, despite her initial goal of killing Shizuo, she later saves him from one of Izaya's traps instead and attempts to kill Izaya so Shizuo won't have to.
  • Biker Babe: Even pictured with Celty here.
  • Blood Knight: 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.
  • Break the Haughty: 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.
  • Broken Ace: 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.
  • But Now I Must Go: Returns home at the end of Ketsu.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Shows signs of this. She definitely wasn't too happy when Orihara twins hanged themselves onto Shizuo's arms.
  • Creepy Monotone: Most of the time. Only when something completely unexpected 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.
  • Cute Bookworm: She's beautiful and smart.
  • Dangerous Deserter: Not helped by the fact that she has a natural inclination towards Ax-Crazy.
  • Dark Action Girl: A very skilled fighter, who nonetheless takes too much pleasure in causing death and destruction.
  • Dumb Blonde: Inverted. She sounds like a human Wikipedia when she's not itching to destroy something.
  • Foreign Fanservice: She's a tall, busty, blonde-haired Russian girl and has a tendency to keep her biker suit unzipped.
  • Freaky Is Cool: She reacts with sheer delight at the prospect of fighting monsters like Celty, Anri, and Shizuo in Ikebukuro.
  • Graceful Loser
  • Harmful to Minors: When she killed a robber at the young age of ten. The experience left her slightly traumatized, and resulted in her searching for more opponents in order to continue testing the fragility of human mortality.
  • Icy Blue Eyes
  • In Love with Your Carnage: Her reaction when first encountering Shizuo could be described as, er, rather orgasmic.
  • Intelligence Equals Isolation: 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.
  • Mad Scientist's Beautiful Daughter: A mafioso variant.
  • Meaningful Name: Her code name means 'crow' in Russian note 
  • Odd Couple: With Slon.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Not even her father calls her by her real name.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Not always, but her right eye is often covered by her hair.
  • Poisonous Friend: Becomes this to Shizuo, of all people. In the Volume 13, Vorona tries to kill Izaya in Shizuo’s stead, because she’s already a killer, and she won't let Izaya turn Shizuo into a monster.
  • Psycho for Hire
  • Psychopathic Womanchild: Lingerin remarks that while Vorona is physically mature, she is still a child mentally.
  • Pet the Dog: Her loud protests when she was told that Awakusu-kai were going to kill Slon show that she isn't that heartless.
  • Razor Floss: She uses steel threads to behead people in an ambush, although it doesn't quite work when she tries it on someone who's already missing one.
  • Sempai/Kohai: 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, while plotting to destroy him.
  • Ship Tease: With Shizuo.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Vorona or Varona?
  • Spock Speak: 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.
  • The Stoic: Is usually deadpan, but not always, since she gets really excited when she's about to fight a strong opponent.
  • Stripperiffic: As mentioned earlier, Vorona's unzipped uniform is utterly impractical for riding a motorcycle, and is probably meant as pure Fanservice.
  • Sugar and Ice Personality: She's cold towards most people. Her softer side is reserved mostly for her partner Slon and Shizuo.
  • Sweet Tooth: Confessed herself as one after her answer to Shizuo's question about Siberia somehow turned into a monologue about various sorts of cakes.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Of the "would have died if not for circumstances beyond their control" variant. Kidnaps a Yakuza Princess and is ambushed by the Awakusu. It's stated outright the only reason they didn't shoot her then and there or torture her to death was her father offered the Awakusu a deal on arms shipments.
  • Tykebomb: After she killed her first man at age 10, her father had Simon train her to become a killing machine.
  • X Marks the Hero: She's not a hero, but she's got some sort of cross-like scar on her... well, see for yourself.
  • "Well Done, Daughter!" Girl: 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.
  • What Is This Thing You Call "Love"?: Vorona has never loved a single human being, not even herself. The closest thing to 'love' she's ever felt is the love of facing a worthy opponent and then killing them.

    Slon 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/2a76209b98ab207f69dc1c5f6a0095f9.jpg
Voiced by: Satoshi Mikami (Japanese), Richard Epcar (English)

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.
  • Constantly Curious: Slon is just full of stupid, irrelevant questions.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Slon may be an idiot, but 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.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Slon doesn't like the idea of targeting innocent bystanders. Especially if it's Anri and Akane.
    Slon: This is sad day. Asking us to torment young girl like this. Is more like job for random thug from street corner.
  • Hidden Depths: He can speak perfectly fluent Japanese, despite his idiocy. Even Vorona is surprised.
  • Husky Russkie: He's nearly comparable to Simon by his large size.
  • Knee-capping: Gets shot in the knees by the Awakusu for his part in kidnapping Akane.
  • Meaningful Name: Slon means "elephant" in Russian.
  • The Mole: Possibly for Izaya. According to Mika, he has closer ties to him than he does to Vorona.
  • Morality Pet: To Vorona who seems to care for him to a certain degree.
  • Mundane Made Awesome: "I'm not moving an inch until I've solved the mystery of the male nipples! This is my war!!"
  • Nonstandard Character Design: His appearance is noticeably more cartoony than the other characters'.
  • Not Listening to Me, Are You?: "Am I... being ignored?"
  • Odd Couple: With Vorona.

    Ruri Hijiribe 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/81847_1473.jpg
Voiced by: Saki Fujita (JP), Cristina Valenzuela (EN)

A popular idol singer who lives a double life as the serial killer "Hollywood".
  • Ax-Crazy: As Hollywood, she is known for leaving her victim's bodies in a near unrecognizable state, the only parts that remain untouched are usually the head and the limbs although usually the faces are mutilated as well.
  • The Beard: In the second season, she and Yuhei decided to pretend to be couple in order to rile up the reporters that had surrounded the entrance to Kasuka's apartment as a way to keep Nebula's employees from getting close to Ruri.
  • Becoming the Mask: Her couple act with Yuhei was initially meant to be a temporary ruse, but they develop genuine feelings for each other later on.
  • Birds of a Feather: With Yuhei. They're both emotionally distant idols who sync together perfectly.
  • But Not Too Foreign: Celty suspects she might have some Nordic blood in her. There's also the fact that she's a Dhampyr, and since Celty says vampires aren't native to Japan...
  • Dark Action Girl: Initially, as she uses her superhuman abilities to carry out a murder spree as Hollywood. Drops the dark later when she helps Celty fight some thugs. And even later, her murder spree turns out to be somewhat justified.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Ruri's family went bankrupt due to bad investments and many of them killed themselves over it. She became a makeup artist out of her love for monster movies, but eventually became a Magazine Idol, then a singer/actress after she gained enough publicity. However, her boss, Yodogiri Jinnai, began using her for various occult rituals that several of the other employees were a part of. These rituals involved slowly drawing blood from her body. Not long after that started, she ran off and began killing all of those responsible for hurting her, becoming the serial killer Hollywood.
  • Dhampyr: Ruri is part vampire. She possesses vampire strengths and weaknesses in a diluted form.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Shows up briefly in the sixth episode, even though she isn't introduced in the light novels until volume 4 and the second season of the anime.
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Celty admits that even she occasionally gets distracted by her sometimes.
  • Hair Decorations
  • Healing Factor: She has healing abilities that allow her to survive an attack from Shizuo.
  • Hero-Worshipper: She shows admiration towards Celty after being transported back to her apartment. It's enough for her to show up in knight armor to help Celty in a jam.
  • Idol Singer
  • Ill Girl: Ruri has a public reputation of being somewhat sickly and unathletic. It's a big, damn lie.
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: She has a soft spot for Yuhei's pet cat Dokusonmaru.
  • Living a Double Life: Not many know that besides being a famous idol singer, she is actually the serial killer Hollywood.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Has a fascination with Hollywood movie monsters and the concept of monsterdom. It's what inspires her serial killer MO.
  • Serial Killer: She's the dreaded serial killer "Hollywood".
  • Sugar and Ice Personality: Her first episodes depict her as being icy and stoic. Later appearances show her softer side in regards to Yuhei and Dokusonmaru and others.
  • Super Strength: She has superhuman strength.
  • Sympathetic Murderer: For an infamous Serial Killer, Ruri is quite the sympathetic character, especially given the way she comes to deeply care about her boyfriend Yuhei and his cat Dokusonmaru.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Ruri's only 1/4 vampire, but nonetheless carries the traditional vampire weaknesses of direct sunlight and garlic in a diluted form.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: The occults rituals her boss subjected her to caused her to become the serial killer Hollywood and go after those responsible for hurting her.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Grade A in several of her outfits.

    Chikage Rokujo 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/278446.jpg
Voiced by: Yuki Ono (Japanese), Grant George (English)

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.
  • Badass Biker: Leader of a bosozoku gang.
  • Bandaged Face: Has most of his appearances being wrapped in bandages after a somewhat disastrous encounter with Shizuo.
  • Berserk Button: Hurt a girl in any way and he will likely kick you in the nuts.
  • Biggus Dickus: Implied by one of his girlfriends.
  • The Casanova: He's always surrounded with girls. Could arrange for a date for eight ladies at once, and none of them seem to mind, as long as they get to play with him.
  • Cavalier Competitor: Very laid-back about fights even in his quest for vengeance.
  • Chick Magnet: He is a self-styled ladies man and usually has an entourage of about 10 or so girls following him around.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: General 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.
  • Defiant to the End: 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 I’m in the hospital bed. Are you jealous now?" ...Well, something like that. His tooth broke so I wasn’t able to hear very well.
  • The Dulcinea Effect: He's chivalrous to any girl he meets, and will try to protect them whenever he cans.
  • Ethical Slut: If anybody plans to hurt a woman, he will take it upon himself to beat the bastard to a pulp.
  • Fearless Fool:
    • His very first order of business upon entering Ikebukuro? Picking a fight with Shizuo, hence the bandages.
    • Later, he jumps off the roof of a 3-5 story parking garage in an attempt to knock Kida out when the latter has him in a choke-hold. Does it again in order to make a quick get-away with an injured Kida.
  • Friendly Enemy: 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. He even makes it a point of properly challenging Shizuo to a fight as opposed to attacking him from out of nowhere, something the latter respects. 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.
    • This even extends to his behavior with Kadota, and visits him when the latter lands in a coma.
  • Graceful Loser: Not at all annoyed at getting the crap beaten out of him by Shizuo. He thought it was kinda fun, actually.
  • Harem Seeker: And a successful one at that.
  • Made of Iron: Not to Shizuo's levels, but Shizuo himself notes that he was shocked that Chikage took 4 of his punches.
    • Survives an estimated 5 story fall during his duel with Kida Masaomi and comes off no worse for wear.
  • Nice Guy: While a bit of a playboy, he has an honorable attitude and is respectful towards women.
  • Nice Hat: Wears a brown fedora.
  • Noble Demon: A ruthless leader of a biker gang, but a reasonable chap who respects women and his enemies.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Delivers several to Mikado and Masaomi over their conflict. Respectively, he states that Mikado would do well to pursue a normal life (which is what sends him over the edge) while telling Masaomi that if he had returned sooner to Ikebukuro the whole ordeal could have been avoided.
  • Sexy Man, Instant Harem: Is rarely seen without his many girlfriends.
  • Wife-Basher Basher: Do not hurt women in Chikage's presence.
  • Wouldn't Hit a Girl: And he does not take kindly to those that do.

    Emilia Kishitani 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/emilia_kishitani.jpg
Voiced by: Atsumi Tanezaki (Japanese), Karen Strassman (English)

A researcher from Nebula, and Shingen's new wife.
  • Foreign Fanservice: She has quite a head of blonde hair and a large set of breasts.
  • Funny Foreigner: Her Japanese grammar is atrocious, her cooking is terrible, and her messy appearance makes her look pretty ditzy on the outside.
  • Fun with Foreign Languages: 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.
  • Green Eyes
  • Hot Scientist: She works as a researcher for Nebula.
  • Japanese Pronouns: Amusingly, she uses Shousei as her personal pronun.
  • Lethal Chef: She gets a -20% rating for her cooking!

    Aoba Kuronuma 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/262353.jpg
Voiced by: Hiro Shimono (Japanese), Kyle McCarley (English)

An unusually young-looking freshman that quickly latches onto Mikado. Also the leader of Blue Square and Mikado's second-in-command.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: He has black hair in the novels, while the anime gave him blue hair.
  • Adaptational Villainy: His backstory of being abused by his brother was reduced to a brief mention, making his retaliation seem more petty.
  • Animal Motifs: Sharks. Not only is it his favorite animal, 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.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Aoba initially appears very cheerful, outgoing, and friendly. However, it is quickly revealed that Aoba is actually very devious, manipulative, and ambitious.
  • Cain and Abel: With his brother Ran Izumi. Although he can act like the "Cain" most of the time, he really is the "Abel" in the relationship.
  • The Chessmaster: Fancies himself this as he wants to use Mikado's Dollars for his personal gain, but he realizes Mikado is far more dangerous than he assumed.
  • Creepy Child: From what we see of his childhood, he definitely counts. Just ask his brother...
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Regardless of what Izumii did to him, nearly burning down the house just to get him in trouble seems like a massive overreaction.
  • The Dog Bites Back: In his childhood, he was regularly assaulted by his brother. Eventually something made him snap and burn his brother's room down. He then fakes innocence and throws his brother in jail.
  • The Dragon: Appoints Mikado as the leader of the Blue Squares, where he serves as the gang's Number Two who makes sure the rest of the group obeys Mikado's orders.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: 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.
  • Expy: Basically a teenage version of Czeslaw Meyer.
  • Freudian Excuse: His brother constantly beating him as a kid messed him up psychologically that he became the Manipulative Bastard he is today.
  • G.I.R.L.: It's hinted that he is the new "female" member of the chatroom, "Pure Water 100%".
  • Hair Color Dissonance: He has black hair but many people draw him with blue hair instead.
  • In Love with Your Carnage: His interests/opinion in Mikado is taken Up to Eleven 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.
  • The Man Behind the Man: The real leader of the Blue Squares.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He's described as a younger version of Izaya by Shinra.
  • Older Than He Looks: Aoba's described as looking like a middle (or even elementary) school student.
  • Sempai Kouhai: Is Mikado and Anri's junior in school. Mostly just applies to Mikado, though.
  • She Is Not My Girlfriend: When members of Blue Squares refer to Mairu and Kururi as such.
  • Ship Tease: The kiss with Izaya's sisters of all people.
  • Smug Snake: There's something about his smile that seems condescending.
  • The Starscream: He's plotting on overthrowing Mikado and taking control of the Dollars.
    • Becoming the Mask: he ultimately abandons this goal once he becomes too attached to Mikado
  • Stepford Smiler: Behind his cheerful smile there's a devious mastermind.
  • Straw Nihilist: Unlike Izaya, he hates humans with a passion. From what his brother did to him, it's kind of given why he hates humans.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: Is generally not impressed by the intelligence of his fellow Blue Square members.
    Gin: Let me see - after an awesome fight, they realized The Power of Friendship, 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.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: 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.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has natural blue hair.

    Akane Awakusu 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/akane_awakusu_drrrx2shou_anime_1.jpg
Voiced by: Misaki Kuno (Japanese), Brianna Knickerbocker (English)

The ten-year old daughter of Mikiya and granddaughter of Dogen, who is the current head of the 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.
  • Alliterative Name: Akane Awakusu.
  • Blinding Bangs: Her eyes aren't actually hidden by the bangs, but they're cut in a longish style that gives this impression at times.
  • Creepy Child: A mild example. For the daughter of a Yakuza family, she really is a sweet girl. However, she has no qualms about trying to kill a supposed hitman who is after her family, all with a smile on her face.
  • Damsel in Distress: Is a frequent target of kidnapping due to the gang conflict her family is involved in.
  • Deliberately Cute Child: She used her cute, innocent appearance as a guise to get near Shizuo and zap him with her stun gun.
  • For Happiness: She wanted everyone in her life to be happy. However, after finding out her father is the head of a Yakuza organization, she realize that everyone around her weren't truly happy and the happiness around her was a facade created by her parents.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Tiny Girl to Shizuo's Huge Guy. Justified, considering their respective ages.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Shizuo and Akabayashi.
  • Morality Pet: She's one of the few people who can reign Shizuo's temper (because Shizuo doesn't want to scare the kid and tries his best to not show his rage in front of her).
  • Nice Girl: A sweet, kind-hearted girl at heart, she's able to make friends with people easily, including Shizuo.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: 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.
  • Precocious Crush: She develops a crush on Shizuo, who's twice her age.
  • The Rival: To Vorona. They're both vying over Shizuo for different reasons (i.e. either to kill or defeat him).
  • The Runaway: After discovering her father is in the Yakuza.
  • Shrinking Violet: She's not good with strangers. She'll open up if you're nice enough, though.
  • Technically a Smile: 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...
  • Token Mini-Moe: The only prepubescent in the entire cast, consisting of teenagers, adults, and one immortal.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: The first thing she says to Shizuo is "Die!" and then she tries to electrocute him while smiling sweetly.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Another victim of Izaya's manipulation.
  • Yakuza Princess: The granddaughter of the current head of the infamous Yakuza group Awakusu-kai. She wasn't too happy to discover what her family's "business" was about.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: Her demure, obedient personality contrasts with the strength of will to defy her Yakuza 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.

    Mizuki Akabayashi 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/akabayashi008.jpg
Voiced by: Kappei Yamaguchi (Japanese), Matthew Mercer (English)

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 Normal: Considered a superb street fighter and was able to knock out Vorona without breaking a sweat. 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.
  • Broken Ace: A strong, cunning executive with a hatred for drugs and his life forever changed after a meeting with Saika.
  • Cane Fu: Carries around an ornamented cane for this purpose, since he doesn't need it for walking.
  • Cool Old Guy: Described as somewhere in his thirties to forties, but he is still one helluva good fighter.
  • Cool Shades: Is usually seen wearing a pair. Helps that it covers his lost eye.
  • Defector from Decadence: 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.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Although he's involved with a criminal organization, he's not only chivalrous but hates drug dealing and prostitution.
  • Eye Scream: When Sayaka slashed him in the eye with Saika, he plucked it out before the sword could possess him.
  • Friend to All Children: He is fond of kids, and gets along pretty well with them.
  • Genius Bruiser: He's almost as tall as Aozaki is, but also intelligent and tech-savvy.
  • Glass Eye: After losing his right eye, he replaces it with this.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has a scar over his right eye.
  • Handicapped Badass: He lost an eye, but is still in top-notch fighting form.
  • Hypocrite: A self-admitted one, too.
  • In Love with Your Carnage: He fell in love with Sayaka, after she had pierced his right eyeball with her katana, because he was impressed by her swordsmanship.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Anri, who feels like a younger sister to him. Akane counts as well.
  • Last-Name Basis: Novels only. The official website for Durarara!! x2 has revealed that his first name is 'Mizuki'.
  • 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 disarming act.
  • Meaningful Name: Part of his last name means red, which inspired his Red Baron title.
  • Mistaken for Pedophile: Since he has no wife or girlfriend at his age, and because he is so good with kids, he gets labeled as one, though he denies it.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: 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.
  • Parental Substitute: 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.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Nearly always seen with a smile on his face, even as he is calmly beating up another man. Overlaps with Cheshire Cat Grin sometimes.
  • Red Baron: Nicknamed Awakusu's Red Demon.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Akabayashi is usually portrayed with scarlet irises (to match the hair) in fan works. His canon eye color hasn't been confirmed yet.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red Demon to Aozaki's Blue Demon.
  • Stepford Smiler: It's heavily implied that he's a Type A.
  • Sunglasses at Night: He wears colorful, expensive-looking sunglasses nearly all the time.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: He was a violent man in the past, but 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.
  • Wouldn't Hit a Girl: 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: Part of the Awakusu-kai.

  • Bad Liar: Denies tipping Akabayashi off about the plot against his life, even though Aozaki was the only other person who knew about it in the first place (the first being Dogen Awakusu). Naturally, he doesn't fool anybody.
    Dogen: I mean, I think somebody told him he was being targeted. If not, I don't think he would have been able to plan ahead so well.
    Dogen: Ahh. I didn't think you were that good at jokes, Aozaki.
  • The Brute: 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.
  • Buffy Speak: Occasionally lapses into this.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has a large scar across his left eye.
  • Karma Houdini: Suffers no real repercussions for his villainous actions during the final arc— Most notably, his attempt to bury Mikado and turn the Dollars into a source of revenue for the Awakusu-kai.

  • Meaningful Name: Part of his last name means blue, which inspired his Red Baron title.
  • New Media Are Evil: Has a low opinion on new technology in general, unlike tech-savvy Akabayashi, meaning he makes no effort to keep himself updated.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: Has shades of this towards Akabayashi (though he denies it).
  • Red Baron: Nicknamed Awakusu's Blue Demon.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Blue Demon to Akabayashi's Red Demon.

  • Always Someone Better: He may be a badass and a dangerous assassin but he still is outclassed by Shizuo.
  • Bandaged Face: He was punched by Shizuo so hard that he had to undergone some facial surgery.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Thanks to the influence of Anri’s Saika, he saves Celty from traffic cops.
    • Pulls one again with Shingen and Eijiro to save Namie after she's kidnapped.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: Managed to overcome Saika and gained a boost of strength from it.
  • Hot Blooded Sideburns: They nicely add to his retro look.

  • I Owe You My Life: He feels this way towards Orihara Twins who helped him when he was badly injured after his fight with Shizuo.
  • Mugging the Monster: Taking anything from Shizuo is never a good idea.

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.
  • Brains and Brawn: The brawn to Drakon's brains.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: 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.
  • Dumb Muscle: 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.

The former head of Yodogiri Shining Corporation. Not much is known about him.

  • Diabolical Mastermind: Implied.
  • Evil Old Folks
  • Eviler Than Thou: If Shingen is to be believed, Yodogiri is even worse than Izaya.

  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: He gave one to Izaya right after stabbing him with a knife.

  • Villainous Legacy: There's a lot of "Yodogiri Jinnai"s in the company. If one dies, then another would step up to replace him.

  • Big Bad: Turns out she is this in season 2 onward and that she is impersonating Jinnai.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Saves Ruri from being killed by her stalker in atonement for her actions.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Played with as she has some villainous actions but generally responds to any thanks from helping others with "because I'm a villain". She also accepts that some day, she as a villain, will be killed by someone seeking justice and is prolonging it as long as she can.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: She was sold to the original Jinnai Yodogiri by Ruri's grandmother and groomed by him to run his business. After he died, she continued to run his business in his place using stand ins because she had nothing else.
  • Dhampyr: She's the daughter of Ruri's grandmother, making her this.
  • Driven by Envy: She was envious of Ruri due to them being relatives yet Ruri being happy, but doesn't hate her.
    • She also feels this way about Celty, envying that a "monster" found love and friends when she didn't. She even tried to steal Shinra for herself, though relented later on.
  • The Dragon: Hired by Seitarou Yagiri to capture the many monsters from Ikebukuro.

  • Long-Lost Relative: Is actually Ruri's aunt.
  • The Man Behind the Man: The one responsible for the incident with Ruri, and was also the one who sold Saika to Shingen.
  • Not So Different: From Izaya.
    Shinichi: If we were to call Orihara Izaya “evil by nature”, Kujiragi would be a “miscreant created by people”.
  • Older Than She Looks: Is probably in her 30s, but doesn't look much older than Namie. This is due to her Dhampyr nature.
  • Parental Abandonment: Was sold to Jinnai Yodogiri by Ruri's grandmother.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Even when she is happy, she still has that frown on her face.
  • Razor Floss: Her weapon of choice, and the form her fragment of Saika takes.
  • Sexy Secretary: Acts as this to Jinnai Yodogiri.
  • The Stoic: Never shows any emotion.
  • Stoic Spectacles: Wears these while being quiet most of the time.
  • Verbal Tic: Adds '-nyan' to the end of all her sentences when posing as Kanra, simply to invoke this trope.

The head of the Yagiri Pharmaceuticals, and Seiji and Namie's uncle and caretaker. He got Celty's head from Shingen and felt in love with it. Nebula decide to own his company to get the head but Namie had taken her to Izaya. For this reason, Seitarou made contact with Jodogiri Yinnai in order to get the head before Nebula, thus kickstarting the events from the second season.
  • Bad Boss: Head of the infamous Yagiri Pharmaceuticals.
  • Cain and Abel: Is the Cain to Seiji and Namie’s father Abel. Is implied Seitarou made him fail in the Pharmaceuticals business on purpose to gain power and use his niece and nephew as pawns for his company.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Was introduced at the very beginning of the series as part of Seiji and Namie’s backstory. His official introduction is in the second season as one of the new big bad.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Even though he wanted the head for himself and not in Nebula's hands, the reasons for wanting Ruri, Saika and Celty's body were only "just for business".
  • Evil Uncle: Had no problem in threatening his niece about torturing his nephew, just to get information of the head.
  • Face Doodling: Recive an “I love the head” courtesy of Shingen.
  • Friendly Rivalry: With Shingen, even their respective companies are rivals.
  • Heroic B.S.O.D.: Ended up in catatonic state due to seeing Celty’s true form
  • A Love to Dismember: Just like his nephew.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: Relied mostly of the dirty work on his subordinates and Kujiragi Kasane.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: He is introduced in Ten, halfway through the second season, however many of the conflics involving Yodogiri Jinnai in shou were caused because of his decision to contact him. The reasons for hiring the Awakusu to kill Ruri and kidnapping Akane were in order to weaken them; Kujiragi later revealed that the Awakusu are the main problem for her if she wanted to continue her job for Seitarou without being interrupted.
  • Second-Hand Storytelling: Even though the constant Gambit Pileup between Seitarou and Shingen is never explicit shown, we have been seeing the consequences of it throughout the entire series; the most evidently example is that both of them are the main cause that every single monster is causing troubles in Ikebukuro.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: With the seemingly Yodogiri Jinnai in Ten and with Kujiragi Kasane in Ten and Ketsu

  • Pet the Dog:

    • She even ends up helping Izaya get into the car to drive him off, rather than letting him die in the end.
  • Revenge: Her goal against Izaya. She eventually lets it go.
  • Satellite Character: To Izaya. Her involvements to the story are connected with him as the only desire she has is to make him suffer. This is even lampshaded by she herself whe she claimed that, apart from make Izaya's life misserable, she doesn't have any other intention to live.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: She's ultimately just a girl who Izaya screwed with. So she steals Celty's head and then tosses it where everyone can see it, causing the final arc to go full swing.

The second in command of the Heaven's Slave drug cartel. In Durarara!! SH, he's joined up with Earthworm.
  • Arc Villain: Of the first two SH novels as he formed the cult of the Headless Rider and distributed the brainwashing drugs.
  • Ascended Extra: He becomes a major supporting character in the sequel series. He explicitly states in SH volume 4 that his intention is to rise beyond his position of extra that he had held in the original series and cause some great upheaval in Ikebukuro.
  • Bandaged Face: Sports this appearance in SH and is the first thing everyone notices when they see him.
  • Blatant Lies: After being reveleaded that the person Earthworm had been torturing was Kumoi, the leader of his group, he realized that his secret of himself being the actual leader of Heaven Slave would be known by his subordinates he claimed he would cut the knot that was tying the captive while aiming his stomach... Izaya, who was the person who was actually captured, saw his real intentions and stopped him
  • The Dragon: He is the second in charge of the drug dealing business while Kumoi is the leader. It is later reveleaded that Kumoi had stopped being the leader and Shijima kept acting as if nothing happened in order to controlling his subordinates and to not hold any responsability if something wrong happened to the organization.
  • Number Two: He planned to make his group Heaven Slave a shadows of the Dollars so they can go unnoticed.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: He and Earthworm got introduced and defeated by Izaya in the same volume with no further consequences; however after that, while the latter is only used by Izaya in his schemes against Shizuo, Shijima got a larger role in the story after being hired by Yodogiri Jinnai to infiltrate in the Dollars, this resulted in Shijima giving a gun glove to Mikado which he finally used to shoot Masaomi and his attempted suicide.
  • Spoiled Brat: As soon as he lost against Izaya, and after messing with the Awakusu, he decided to ask his grandfather for help, who is an important politian. Nevertheless, while his grandfather agreed to deal with the Awakusu, in return, Shijima had to work with Yodogiri.
  • Villain Team-Up: Invoked and later subverted. He acknowledged that his group is not powerful enough so he attemped to ally himself with Amphisbaena. His plan failed in the end because of Izaya, who defeated both groups. They finally team up in SH once Izaya left Ikebukuro.
