Main characters[edit]

Mikado Ryūgamine (竜ヶ峰 帝人, Ryūgamine Mikado)
Voiced by: Toshiyuki Toyonaga (Japanese); Darrel Guilbeau (English)
Online Alias: Tarō Tanaka (田中 太郎, Tanaka Tarō)
A first year high school boy who moves to Ikebukuro thanks to encouragement from his best friend, Masaomi Kida. He moved in hopes of having a more exciting life than the one he lived in Saitama. Mikado tries hard to change his image, but has not had any real luck, although he does get up enough courage to become the Class Representative along with Anri Sonohara. Mikado has had moments where he speaks his mind, and Masaomi claims to admire this about him. He is the only remaining creator of the infamous Dollars gang. He seems to be infatuated with Anri, but has never found a chance to tell her. Whenever he is close to confessing, she leaves. Mikado often gets advice from Izaya Orihara, particularly in relation to the Dollars and his need to seek out a life that is not ordinary. He is the leader of Dollars, and, in the continuing novels, also becomes the temporary leader for the Blue Squares, contracting with Aoba in the sixth novel. In that novel, Mikado reveals his "true self" or "true character," a darker side of who he is. When Masaomi returns in the eighth novel, Mikado warns him to keep away from his affairs.
Masaomi Kida (紀田 正臣, Kida Masaomi)
Voiced by: Mamoru Miyano (Japanese); Bryce Papenbrook (English)
Online Alias: Bakyura (バキュラ)
A resident of Ikebukuro and Mikado Ryūgamine's best friend from childhood. He was the one who encouraged Mikado to come to Ikebukuro. He is enthusiastic about picking-up girls, but he seems to fail at it. He was depressed and lonely before Mikado arrived because his girlfriend was kidnapped and injured during a gang war between the Blue Squares and Yellow Scarves, which he led at the time during his middle school years. After Anri is injured during the Slasher incidents and the rising presence of the Dollars, he is forced to become the leader of the Yellow Scarves once more and seek revenge for his friend. Because he had once been the 'shogun (leader)' of the Yellow Scarves, he possesses a talent in fighting- it has also been implied that he had taken down countless gangs single handedly during his 'shogun' years. He despises Orihara Izaya for manipulating him when he first formed the Yellow Scarves, but returns to him again for information about the leader of the Dollars and discovers it is Mikado. He leaves Ikebukuro with his ex-girlfriend, Saki Mikajima, after the conflict between the three main forces in Ikebukuro and subsequently gets back together with Saki. Masaomi has commented on not letting Mikado "go to the dark side", claiming that he has already gone through it. He returns in Volume 7, but fails to face Mikado when he witnesses Mikado confessing to Chikage that he is actually the founder of Dollars, but Chikage does not believe this, of course.
A cosplay of Celty Sturluson at Fan Expo Canada 2016 in Toronto.
Celty Sturluson (セルティ・ストゥルルソン, Seruti Sutururuson)
Voiced by: Miyuki Sawashiro (Japanese); Kari Wahlgren (English)
Online Alias: Setton (セットン)
A member of the Dollars. Also known as "The Black Biker" or "The Headless Rider", she is a Dullahan from Ireland who came to Japan looking for her stolen head. Her motorcycle is actually a disguised headless horse called a Cóiste-Bodhar. She has no heart and perceives via unknown sensors that are not located on the head. The physical strength she possesses is above human, though not quite on par with Shizuo Heiwajima. She is also capable of manipulating a shadow-like, durable substance to form objects ranging from gloves to chariots at her will as well as use the shadow-like substance to alter her outfits to go with different occasions. Celty lives with Shinra Kishitani, and the two are romantically involved. She works as an underground courier and wears a helmet when she goes out and communicates via a PDA. She enjoys online chatting, television and DVDs. Celty has a shoe size of 16. She is one of the minority who knows the creator of the Dollars and that Anri is in control of Saika. Over the course of the series, her relationship with Shinra intensifies; eventually, she says that she is in love with Shinra. She has a habit of punching Shinra in the stomach whenever he talks about his love for her. She tends to get mad when Shinra says she does not need her head. Despite being a supernatural creature, she is afraid of extraterrestrials and has developed a fear of traffic officers as they started pursuing her frequently. Her biggest fear, however, is that if her head is destroyed, the same may happen to her. Unbeknownst to Celty, Izaya Orihara has possession of her head before Kasane stole it and gives it back to its rightful owner. Upon being restored afterwards, Celty became amnesic with Shinra deciding to help her regain her memories or make new ones as she attempts to readjust to life in Ikebukuro again. Her name is a reference to Snorri Sturluson, who wrote the Prose Edda, where Valkyries appear. Celty also appears in Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 as a playable character per downloadable content.[1]
Anri Sonohara (園原 杏里, Sonohara Anri)
Voiced by: Kana Hanazawa (Japanese); Michelle Ruff (English)
Online Alias: Saika (罪歌) and "Singsong"
A spectacled girl who attends the same school as Mikado and Masaomi. She is the class representative along with Mikado. She is rather quiet and timid and seems very close to Mikado and Masaomi, but she tends to keep to herself. Though she knows Mikado's feelings for her, she considers herself unable to feel "love" towards anyone. She is somewhat popular, even though she feels uneasy about it. She feels as if she needs to rely on somebody to move on, and thus considers herself a parasite. As a child, Anri was forced to witness her mother murder her abusive father with a katana called Saika, later revealed to be a copy of the original. Her inability to love negates Saika's "love" for humans and thus makes Anri able to control the blade. She seems to be a skilled swordswoman, being able to handle Saika with great skill. After defeating Haruna, she gains control over the "Saika-children" that Haruna created. After a talk with Celty, she decides to use this ability for the best of the city. Anri also becomes aware of Masaomi's identity as the leader of the Yellow Scarves, but does not understand why he has taken the position at first only later to find out it was for her and Mikado's sake.
Izaya Orihara (折原 臨也, Orihara Izaya)
Voiced by: Hiroshi Kamiya (Japanese); Johnny Yong Bosch (English)
Online Alias: Kanra (甘楽), Chrome (クロム) and "Nakura"
Izaya is an informant who sells information for his own satisfaction and is usually behind the most relevant events in the series until part II decreases it. Izaya often claims to love all humans as a collective (with the exception of Shizuo Heiwajima) and enjoys manipulating people in order to gauge their reactions. These situations often lead to injury and misery, forcing those involved to go to great lengths to rectify the situation or give up entirely. He is a master of parkour, having perfected his technique after years of fighting with Shizuo. He is also quite skilled with his flick-blade, as he is implied to be the only one capable of leaving numerous cuts on Shizuo (and his bartending suit) whenever they fight in the novels. In the anime, he shaves a gang member's head bald without the man noticing it. He is considered to be one of Ikebukuro's strongest men.
In the past, Izaya attended Raira Academy with Shinra, Kadota, and Shizuo (whose life he made miserable since their mutual hateful rivalry began). At the beginning of the series, Izaya suspects that Mikado is the creator of Dollars (and is later proven to be correct) and knows the identities of the leaders of the three main forces in Ikebukuro. As a member of the Dollars, Izaya was also responsible for spreading the Dollar's website password thus recruiting many members (unbeknownst to Mikado) and has used his membership as an excuse to secretly keep Celty's head. His motives are not entirely clear, though one of his main goals is to create a gang war in Ikebukuro in order to see if it awakens Celty's sleeping head.
After a leave of absence after the Yellow Scarves arc, Izaya hijacks Masaomi's handle in order to manipulate Mikado whilst simultaneously using Akane Awakusu in a scheme to having the Awakusu Group kill off Shizuo. However, he was interrupted after Jinnai Yodogiri stabbed him as a warning for his interference. Upon making a recovery, Izaya assembles a small army composed of Namie Yagiri, Ran Izumii, Mikage Sharaku, Haruna Niekawa, Kisuke Adabashi, Slon, Kine, and the Dragon Zombie gang. At the climax of the events that follow, Izaya finally tries to kill Shizuo once and for all, and is nearly successful but is thwarted by Celty. In the ensuing fight, Izaya, while heavily injured, dares Shizuo to kill in front of multiple witnesses as a final attempt to prove that Shizuo is a monster. But Vorona stabs Izaya at the last second to prevent this outcome. However, before she can kill him, a stun grenade is thrown that allows a near-dead Izaya to escape. Izaya survives thanks to Celty partially healing him before Manami and Kine get him out of Ikebukuro. Though his fate remains a mystery to the residents of Ikebukuro at the start of Durarara!! SH, many assuming he had a role in the new chain of events. A wheelchair-bound Izaya admits to not be ready yet to return home as he continues his informant activities in another part of Japan. Izaya also appears in Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 as a playable character per downloadable content.[1]
Shizuo Heiwajima (平和島 静雄, Heiwajima Shizuo)
Voiced by: Daisuke Ono (Japanese); Crispin Freeman (English)
A blonde man who is always seen wearing designer sunglasses and a bartender's suit. Although quiet and nondescript for the most part, he easily becomes angered, launching in uncontrollable rages and fighting with incredible strength which leads to broken bones and property damage. Despite this, Shizuo hates violence and wishes for a quiet and peaceful life. Despite his simple and unrefined fighting skills (namely his use of road signs, trash cans, and vending machines as weapons), he is considered to be the strongest fighter in the series. In the novels, Shinra describes Shizuo's ability as the naturally unlimited form of human strength, which he dubs "adrenaline power", that can give people superhuman strength in times of emergency. Because of this, Shizuo was often hospitalised due to the enormous strain on his body. In addition, Shizuo is capable of often superhuman parkour moves, a skill he obtained naturally from years of hunting down Izaya Orihara.
He is also a member of Dollars, although he left the group in Volume 6 after some members of the Dollars resorted to kidnapping (after being given the idea by Izaya) to settle a dispute with a rival gang. Shizuo works as a bodyguard in Ikebukuro for Tom, a debt collector and his senpai, being offered the job after he was fired as a bartender. Tom is one of the few people Shizuo doesn't get angry with, as well as the person who convinced Shizuo to bleach his hair (in order to scare away people who might try to fight him). He is close to and incredibly protective of his younger brother, Kasuka, who is a top idol under the show business name Yuuhei Hanejima and will become incredibly angry when strangers mention his name. Shizuo is also the only person who is able to read Kasuka's facial expressions and emotions. He is also a long-time friend of Celty, often having long conversations with her and even working with her on occasion.
Shizuo hates Izaya with a burning passion, becoming enraged at the mere sight of him, though he has stated that he wouldn't mind letting Izaya live as long as he stayed away from Ikebukuro. Before Izaya moved to Shinjuku, it's said that the pair would fight outside Sunshine 60 on a daily basis, only stopping when Izaya escaped or when Simon broke them up and forced them into his restaurant. Although he and Izaya Orihara are on bad terms, Shizuo is actually quite friendly with Izaya's younger sisters, Mairu and Kururi, who aren't afraid of him and may even prefer him to their brother.
His first and last name translates literally, and ironically, into "serene man" and "peaceful island" respectively. He also appears in Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survior 2 Record Breaker as a playable character per downloadable content.[1]
Shinra Kishitani (岸谷 新羅, Kishitani Shinra)
Voiced by: Jun Fukuyama (Japanese); Yuri Lowenthal (English)[2]
Online Alias: Indoor Scholar (白面 書生, Hakumen Shosei)
A young underground doctor who lives with Celty and is also in love with her. He stays indoors mostly, and wears a white lab coat even when not working as a doctor. Shinra's father is also a doctor and Shinra has participated in surgeries with his father since childhood, most notably a vivisection on Celty. Shinra attended to the same primary school as Shizuo, and has since then been interested in his unlimited strength in times of anger. In fact, he rather enjoys it when Shizuo makes use of his strength and is amused by the fights between Shizuo and Izaya. He first met Izaya in middle school and has been friends with him ever since. Shinra is well-informed with news of Ikebukuro's underground, such as the location of Celty's head and the sword 'Saika' which allowed Celty's head to be severed from her body. Despite knowing this, he keeps a secret from Celty out of fear that he will lose her if she finds her head, as the head may have a different will than Celty herself. After Celty realizes Shinra had kept her head's location from her the entire time they have a falling out but have since reconciled. Shinra seems to have the "capacity" to tell what Celty is feeling, much to her surprise since she doesn't have a head to show her emotions. He has a great interest in unexplainable phenomena. His online screen name is revealed to Anri in one of the chat sequences.

Nasujima's bad luck went to worse after owing money to the Awakusa Group, a run-in with Celty and being confronted by Haruna as the Slasher. Suddenly, Nasujima was horrified to learn of Anri's true identity as the Slasher and blatantly told him that she despised him. This made Nasujima run in fear for his life. Still broke, he tried to mug someone with the butcher knife Haruna used as the fake Slasher, but Nasujima was beaten within an inch of his life by his unfortunate choice of mugging target, Shizuo Heiwajima.
Hōrada (法螺田)
Voiced by: Wataru Takagi (Japanese); Kyle Hebert (English)
Horada was second-in-command of the Blue Squares until his boss was arrested. Horada took advantage of the Yellow Scarves' conditional admittance of allowing Blue Squares to become Yellow Scarves simply by switching colors, and it seemed like the truce was over. However, Horada used the Yellow Scarves to commit violent crimes against unsuspecting citizens in Ikebukuro and suspected Dollars members. After the Dollars and the Yellow Scarves stood up against Horada, he and his men tried to escape. With Shizuo's rage destroying Horada's escape vehicle and Kuzuhara's motorcycle patrol surrounding the wrecked car, Horada and his men were arrested and placed behind bars. With Horada's arrest, the Blue Squares were in complete disarray and folded due to in-gang fighting.
