Dasha Duzran was a high-ranking official working for The Twelve. She indoctrinated Villanelle into the world of hired killers and mentored her throughout her life.


Early LifeEdit

Dasha was born and raised in Russia, and her patriotic fervour for the Motherland persists to this day. As a teenager, she had a singular talent at gymnastics. Driven to rage by her coach's constant criticism, she beat her boyfriend to death in the locker room and covered his face in chalk. She was quickly hired by The Twelve as an assassin, renowned for her textbook precision, where she was responsible for training recruits like Villanelle. She took pride in having moulded the young girl into a perfect killing machine. Until she killed one of her own superior gents, she was a top KGB agent.

Reconnecting with VillanelleEdit

With her successful gymnastic and assassin careers mere memories, Dasha wanted to return to Russia. She planned to earn the good will of The Twelve by getting Villanelle to carry out their hits, coercing her into the job with the promise of a position in upper management.

She tracked Villanelle to Rome and interrupted her wedding to Maria, starting an all-out brawl at the reception. Back in Dasha's apartment, Villanelle agreed to work for her in exchange for a promotion to Keeper, a position so high that Dasha couldn't help but mock her.

Villanelle accompanied Dasha to her gymnastics class, where Dasha demonstrated the same brutal teaching style that she had been subjected to. Dasha told her The Twelve would grant her full benefits and a big welcome-home bonus if she could prove herself by assassinating someone in Girona, Spain, urging her to make the kill as creative as possible. Villanelle followed through by murdering a spice saleswoman then pouring paprika onto her face.

Under order from The Twelve's to sever the relationship between Eve and Villanelle, Dasha travelled to Poland. She stole Niko's phone in a bar and posed as him to invite Eve to meet up. Upon her arrival, Dasha waited until Niko was in view before impaling him with a pitchfork, a move designed to frame Villanelle.

After being stabbed by a mark, Villannelle sought refuge in Dasha's apartment where she sewed her wound shut and silenced her pleas to leave the assassin life behind.


Dasha was a hardened, cynical woman. She had a grandiose sense of self that left no room for compassion or even basic politeness toward other people. Despite chain smoking, she remained in peak fitness for her gymnastic classes.







As a teenager, she had a singular talent at gymnastics. After killing her coach, she caught the attention of the The Twelve, going on to become an assassin. In her old age, she mentored Villanelle while moonlighting as a children's gymnastics and swimming teacher.
