Shizuo Heiwajima

"You're pissin' me off."

0 · 206 views · located in Ikebukuro

a character in “Durarara!!- What's the New Dawn?”, as played by Tetsuya Shimazu


Kanji: åšŗ和åŗļ 静雄, Heiwajima Shizuo

Age: 24

Birthday: January 28, 1986 in the Anime

Height: 185 cm (6' 1")

Weight: 70 kg (154 lbs)

Blood Type: O

Occupation: Bodyguard

Likes: Running brooks, watching martial artists fight

Dislikes: Izaya Orihara, violence, gambling

Family: Kichirou (father), Namiko (mother), Kasuka (younger brother)

Characteristcs: Shizuo is a often seen wearing his trademark bartender suit and blue sunglasses. As a child he had brown hair, but dyes his hair blond. He is introduced to the viewer in the first few episodes as a violent, no-nonsense tough guy, on equal footing with seemingly dangerous characters such as Izaya. However, it is implied that most of the time, he is quiet and nondescript, simply following Tom around as his bodyguard. Shizuo apparently doesn't really like violence and has misgivings about his own strength; unfortunately, he has a very short fuse and when angered, his body "acts on its own" and he fights with incredible strength. Masaomi warns Mikado to stay away from him, along with Izaya and the Dollars, telling him to 'not hesitate to run from him' in the manga.

Shizuo's great strength is explained this way: Normally, the brain restricts one's power, shutting down muscles in response to pain in order to prevent serious injury; unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), Shizuo doesn't have this limitation, and is capable of using his full strength. His power is described in the novels as the naturally unlimited form of human strength, and Shinra likens it to the incredible "adrenaline power" that people rarely display in times of emergency. Although he was chronically injuring himself as a child, over time his body quickly strengthened itself and caught up. Now, as an adult, he is able to use his power without destroying his own body.

Despite the fact that Shizuo used his power very often, he was (and to some extent remains) worried about it. This is probably the result of events in his childhood where his strength caused others to fear him, alienated him from others at school, and even at times inadvertently hurting people he cares for. It wasn't until his run-in with the Saika Army that he was able to accept himself the way he was, since they claimed to "love" him because of his strength, giving him a reason to stop holding back. Outsiders believe that the "Slasher" incidents ended when he went after Shizuo (it was actually when Anri defeated Haruna Niekawa, but Shizuo still beat up many of Saika's daughter blades and only stopped fighting when they did).

Shizuo is also capable of often superhuman parkour moves gained from years of chasing Izaya, who is very good at running away from him. They share an intense mutual animosity, and Shizuo simply seeing Izaya on the street usually results in Shizuo hurling a trash can, vending machine or other dangerous projectile at him, followed by Izaya fleeing and Shizuo giving chase while angrily yelling "I-za-ya!" after him

So begins...

Mikado Ryugamine was running as fast as he could down the busy street of Ikebukuro, breathing heavily. He stopped and bent over, resting his hands on his knees. "Man," Mikado said, inbetween breaths. "I should really get in shape."

A very tall black man was standing next to Mikado, holding a pile of fliers in his hands. "You look tired. Come, eat sushi." The man said, in Russian accent.

Mikado was a little startled by the man's booming voice. He hadn't noticed, until now that he'd decide to rest infront of the Russia sushi shop. "Oh, hey Simon." Mikado said, a smile on his face. "Sorry, I have to get to school. But maybe later I'll come by for some sushi." And with that Mikad sprinted off again.

As the boy started to sprint off again he felt his shoulder bump into something. He didn't know it was a person until the man said. "Hey, watch where your goin'." The man's voice was rather bitter.

Mikado immediately bowed his head. "I'm very sorry!"

"Hey. I've seen you before, right?" The voice said, not sounding any less bitter.

Mikado lifted his head a little to see who the man was. His face contorted as he understood who the man he just ran into was. This man was rather tall and wore the clothes a bartender would usually wear, he had average length blonde hair and blue sunglasses.

"Y- you're Shizuo Heiwajima!"

"That's right, who are you?" Shizuo said, putting a cigarettein between his lips.

"I- I'm Mikado. Mikado Ryugamine!" Mikado said then bowed again.

"The name sounds familiar, but..." Shizuo said, then looked up at the sky, thinking. "Shit, I can't remember."

"Oh, wait." Shizuo said, fguring out where he'd seen the boy before. "You were there when the Dollars had their first meeting. Well, I guess you could call that a meeting."

"Uh, y-yes. I was there." Mikado stuttered.

"You were talkin' to Izaya, right? Speakin' of that weasel, have you seen him around recently?" Shizuo asked.

"Umm, I don't think so..." Mikado said.

"Damn. Well, actually that's good and bad." Shizuo said. He pulled the cigarette out from inbetween his lips and stepped on it. "It's bad because I can't beat the shit out of him, but good because I don't have to see or hear his pathetic face."

Just then a black bike pulled over next to Shizuo. The bike's engine made no noise, and the rider was wearing a yellow helmet with cat ears.

Both Shizuo and Mikado looked at the bike as it haulted to a stop. "Celty?" The two asked in unison. She pulled out her PDA and typed out, "Shizuo, I'd like to talk with you."

Shizuo nodded. "Yeah, sure." He then stepped on the back of the bike.

Celty then held up the portable device to Mikado's face, it now read. "I need to talk to you later, as well. After school, okay?"

Mikado's face filled with shock when he read the message. "I forgot about Anri again!" He yelled then sprinted off.
