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.

* 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.]]
* PsychopathicWomanchild: 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.

* DeadAllAlong: [[spoiler:The original Yodogiri Jinnai, at least.]]

!!Lingerin Douglanikov
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/ShinpachiShuji (Japanese), Creator/BeauBillingslea (English)

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.

* NoNameGiven: At least not in the novel.
** [[spoiler: Has one as of Vol. 11: Mamiya Manami ]]
* SuicidePact: Can you guess with who?
