The world isn't as cruel as you believe
~ Celty Sturluson
Celty Sturluson is the true main protagonist of the light novel and anime series Durarara!!. Her motorcycle is actually a horse in disguise, which she has named Shooter. She has no head and perceives via unknown sensors that are not located on the head.

Celty has no head and perceives via unknown sensors that are not located on the head. She lives with Shinra Kishitani and works as an underground transporter. She wears a helmet when she goes out and communicates via a PDA. She enjoys online chatting, television and DVDs.

She is voiced by Miyuki Sawashiro in the Japanese version of the anime and Kari Wahlgren in the English version.


In her early years, it is shown that Celty wore knights armour as she travelled the country side with her head resting on her lap. When she immigrated to Japan, she updates her attire to match the times. For most of the series, Celty is shown to wear an all black biker jumpsuit with black gloves and  shoes. All of her clothing is made from a shadow-like substance that materializes around her at her will. She also wears a yellow and blue helmet that vaguely resemble the shape of a cat's head. As far as physical features go, Celty isn't particularly imposing although she does have above average strength. She is well-endowed, has pale white skin and her head is shown to have brown hair and blue eyes.

Shinra: Celty, was that supposed to be a joke?
~ Celty's fear of aliens

Celty's personality is, ironically, one of the most normal and down-to-earth compared to most of the other cast. Although she was fairly emotionless in her early life, she has since developed a much more defined personality as she spent more time with humans. She is shown to be one of the nicest characters, frequently saving people and protecting them from danger. Despite being a personification of Death, she doesn't wish to do anything evil and will always pull her friends from any jam.

She is generally a confident and optimistic individual although she is not without her insecurities. Chief among these are her concerns about how people will react to her monstrous nature. She has shown on a few occasions that she wishes she was normal. She tells Shinra at one point that she didn't want to accept that her head and memories were gone, believing that if she did, everything she had done for the past 20 years would have been for nothing. However, Shinra assured that it wasn't for nothing, simply because she met him.

In the start of the series, Celty tends to avoid most people as they usually react negatively upon realizing she has no head. However, she has recently begun opening up more to people as she encounters others who are not only accepting of the paranormal (such as with Shizuo or Anri) but seem to revel in it (such as Mikado or Izaya). Developing a human personality has also enabled her to return Shinra's feelings for her, whom she initially found to be a nuisance.

Aside from developing a more human personality, she has also developed a few human interests. She is shown to enjoy watching movies and playing video-games, but has developed an odd phobia of aliens, something that has been used for comic relief throughout the series.

Relationship with Shinra

Shinra first met Celty after spotting her hiding in the cargo hold of a ship he and his father were taking to Japan. At this point in time, What Shinra felt towards her was merely a sense of awe and wonder at such a mysterious creature. Shinra continued to remain interested in Celty as he grew up and this curiosity eventually evolved into love. Celty, on the otherhand, remained indifferent towards Shinra for most of his life and even seemed to find him detestable at times. However, as she spent more time around humans and developed her emotions, she began to reciprocate Shinra's feelings.

In episode 12, or at the end of Volume 1 of the Light Novels, Shinra displayed his desire to remain with Celty no matter what in that he intentionally kept the location of her head from her because he feared that if she reclaimed it, she would leave him. After all was said and done, he allowed Celty to punch him after what he did to Mika Harima. Then he punches Celty's helmet off saying that she looks beautiful even if she does not have a head.

In Volumes 5 and 6 of the Light Novels, there were several sections called "The Lovey-Dovey Prattles of an Underground Doctor", which were obviously narrated by Shinra. As the title implies, each and every one of them has Shinra rambling on about something and somehow steering the subject over to his love of Celty. While he initially starts off talking to himself and even Celty about it, he begins to talk about his feelings towards people who show up at his house such as Shizuo and Tom in Part 3, and even Shiki in Part 5. In Part 4, Shinra was writing a diary entry about imaginating Celty in many different types of outfits, inclusive of gunslinger outfits and even a sailor outfit.

In a flashback in Volume 8, Shinra was shown to be protective over Celty to the point where he threatened Aoba, who was trying to befriend Celty, with his scalpel because he sensed Aoba's ulterior motives.

While not nearly as obsessive or single minded in her affection as Shinra is, Celty does genuinely love Shinra. While Shinra's energetic and often overbearing personality can wear her out at times, she also appears to find his cheerful disposition to be comforting as well. When the two finally admit their feelings for one another, Celty becomes less and less preoccupied with searching for her head and thinks more and more about her future with Shinra as Shown in volume 4 where, after getting paid for letting Emilia run experiments on her, she thought of buying him a new DVD player. In volume 9, while Shinra is recovering from his injuries inflicted by Kisuke, Celty expresses a thinly contained rage and a strong desire for revenge. It even gets to the point to where she contemplates killing Izaya when she briefly suspects him of being behind the assault.


Celty is a headless dullahan from Ireland who lost her head 20 years before the start of the series. Since she fears death, she searched desperately for her head. She follow her head's faint trail which led her to Japan. As she boarded the ship, she was founded by the child Shinra Kishitani along with his scientist/doctor father who made a deal to keep the secret between them if she allowed him to do a full autopsy on her which she agreed. Since then, Celty lived with Shinra and his father while also working as an underground transporter.

Powers and Abilities

The physical strength she possesses is above human, though not quite on par with Shizuo Heiwajima and Simon Brezhnev. She is also capable of producing a shadow-like, durable substance to form objects ranging from gloves to chariots at her will.
