Ivlenkov (イワレンコフ, Iwarenkofu) was one of Neon's bodyguards.

Ivlenkov's 2011 anime adaptation design

Ivlenkov was a plump man who appeared to be in his middle age. He had brown combed-back hair and green eyes. He was only seen wearing a standard black suit, white shirt, and a black-tie. In the 2011 anime adaptation, his tie was dark red.


Ivlenkov always had a calm and professional demeanor, especially around his client[1] and when he was in the Underground Auction as one of the representatives for the Nostrade Family.[2]


Yorknew City arc

On a private runway at the Lingon Airport, Ivlenkov, Linssen, Tocino, Dalzollene, and Squala keep a close eye on Neon Nostrade, as she exits her private airship and into a car en route to Yorknew City.[1] Under Dalzollene's orders, Ivlenkov along with Tocino and Baise are assigned to attend the Underground Auction as representatives under the Nostrade Family.[3]

Ivlenkov killed by Shizuku

Before the start of the auction, Ivlenkov along with Tocino and Baise, notes the types of capos in attendance. To escape from Franklin's Double Machine Gun Nen ability from within the auction room, Ivlenkov breaks down to the door to the outside, but immediately his head is smashed open by Shizuku's Blinky.[2]

Kurapika mentions Ivlenkov to Uvogin as one of the Nostrade bodyguards that were killed in the massacre. However, the thief shows little remorse for their losses and in a fit of rage Kurapika smashes his fist onto Uvogin's face.[4] Neon is later informed about the deaths of Ivlenkov, Squala, Baise, and Dalzollene, though the girl's main concern was that of the Princess Corco Mummy.[5]

Abilities & Powers

Ivlenkov used to be a Nostrade Family's bodyguard and, as such, he must have been skilled enough to have passed a test for this job. He proved to be moderately fast and agile when he dodged the spray of Nen bullets fired by Franklin's Double Machine Gun.[2]


His Nen type and abilities are unknown, as they have never been shown or mentioned.
