EarthwormA 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.

- Psychopathic Womanchild: She's somewhere in her twenties, but sounds like a teenager and acts disturbingly childish while 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. She doesn't know what really happened if she thinks this though because Shinra took the knife wound for Izaya.

- Dead All Along: The original Yodogiri Jinnai, at least.
- Diabolical Mastermind: Implied.

- Manipulative Bastard
- Master of Disguise
- "The Reason You Suck" Speech: 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!

- Bad Ass: 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.
- 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.
- Husky Russkie
- The Mafiya
- Those Two Bad Guys: With Drakon.

- Disproportionate Retribution: Even though Izaya gave her a Breaking Speech, drugged and stuffed her into a suitcase, still wanting to kill him for it seems a little harsh.

- No Name Given: At least not in the novel.
