From what is seen of Ilya, at first glance, he appears to be a kind-hearted person, speaking politely and constantly having a smile on his face. However, this outgoing persona belies a darker side to him, as his violent drawings and hostile actions, such as forcefully kidnapping Suou and July and attempting to kill Hei, demonstrate. He is also a confirmed serial killer, with his murders stretching back to even before he became a Contractor, as Repnin's niece was the last person he killed as a normal human, further explaining his tendencies.
Ilya's power is brain asphyxiation, essentially killing his victims via 'turning off' the brains of his targets until they die from lack of oxygen. Ilya himself describes his ability to be "like a brain narcotic". His obeisance is drawing, and Ilya has a tendency to draw rather gruesome images as his payment, particularly of people in death poses with severed limbs and heads.
Role in StoryEditIlya is first seen in a taxi, drawing, with the door ajar. Two Japanese girls notice him as a foreigner, and run over to him, interested. Ilya confirms that he can speak Japanese when asked if he can by one of the girls, and he is then asked by another to show them what he is drawing.The picture he shows them, featuring the two girls in gruesome death poses, frightens the girls, and they run off in fear as Ilya watches with a blank expression on his face.
He then reappears later and attempts to capture Suou and July, making Suou submissive by using his powers. He initially succeeds, but he is pursued by Hei, who lands on the top of his car and attempts to strangle him with his cord. Ilya uses his powers on Hei, who becomes dazed and nearly falls away from the car, but recovers thanks to July distracting him, leaps off a truck around the car, and succeeds in strangling Ilya to death, severing a few of the tips of his fingers in the process. A star then falls soon afterwards, presumably being Ilya's.
Not long after Ilya's death, Repnin reveals that Ilya himself was the main reason for him hating Contractors, as, in the past, he was responsible for the death of his niece, and Repnin was later forced to become his caretaker. Ilya was also Repnin's driving motivation to obtain 'a certain Doll'- Yin- in order to carry out mass Contractor genocide by suicide, using Yin's or Izanami's powers.
