Mikado Ryuugamine

Headless Rider, Objective is the second chapter of the first Durarara!! light novel.


Mikado Ryuugamine arrives in Tokyo and is overwhelmed by the crowds of people. He meets up with his childhood friend, Masaomi Kida, who shows him around town and eases his apprehension of the big city.

Masaomi warns Mikado of the dangers of Ikebukuro, including color gangs, motorcycle gangs, yakuza, the Dollars, and individuals who are never to be messed with. Their tour is interrupted by the appearance of the Headless Rider, whom the pair watch with awe.

Later in the chat room, two of the members discuss Tarou Tanaka's recent move to Ikebukuro and his first glimpse of the urban legend. When Kanra logs in, the discussion shifts to the Dollars and the recent string of disappearances in Ikebukuro, and Kanra promises to have a welcome party for Tarou Tanaka in person.
