izaya orihara character analysis
a study in human character, mental illness and socially percieved sanity [revised version]
“I succumb to the illusion that I’m God when I look at it like this, which feels pretty good, you know.” – Izaya Orihara
From what we’re acquainted with in the series, Izaya seems to have been born human. His early years are supposedly normal, his parents loving him and his sisters as parents should. The relationship between the Orihara siblings isn’t a typical one though – ranging from the incestuous obsession on one side (Mairu and Kururi), to a cold, heartless relationship (the twins and Izaya), in which the two would not mind sending their brother to death for the chance of seeing their idol.
“While Mairu and Kururi are inseparable, their feelings on the elder brother are not as clear-alternately stating that they still consider him family, but also saying they wouldn’t mind killing him and throwing his dead body in the garbage to meet their idol: “Hanejima Yuuhei”, Shizuo’s younger brother.” – drrr!! wiki
