Who is Sutton in Durarara?
Who is Setton?
Setton is Celty Sturluson’s online name in the Chat Room. It is not revealed why she chose that alias though. Celty is one of the regulars in the Chat Room including other major characters such as Mikado Ryuugamine, Masaomi Kida, Izaya Orihara, and Anri Sonohara.
The Chat Room enables members to speak to one another about buzzworthy everyday happenings including incidents that are affecting the town’s people in mostly bad ways.
The Chat Room is not accessible to everyone as one needs to be invited to be able to use the Chat Room. Celty has been living in the town for many years and so she is a big part of the chat.
Izaya Orihara is the Chat Room’s admin. Celty got the site’s address from him which is how she is a part of the Chat Room.
We see her as a frequent user of the Chat Room. Setton also frequents gaming rooms along with a variety of message boards.
She doesn’t just listen to the news but is one of those determined characters who want to do something about it. She is serious about her duty to help the residents of Ikebukuro and so doesn’t just stop at consuming the news.
She speaks to the people and gets to the bottom of the matter such as in the case of the Slasher who attacked her. Instead of retaliating and just killing the Slasher, she decides to find out complete information about the Slasher through the Chat Room.
Why the Chat Room is important for Setton?
We often see Celty logging into the Chat Room throughout the anime series and even in the light novels. The Chat Room is important because Celty gets information from it and can discuss serious matters with others easily.
As Celty’s head is missing, she communicates via typing and so for her, the Chat Room is a convenient way of speaking to the other members of the town.
Although Celty gets sufficient information when she is working, she still is surprised to learn about some new things when she has logged in to the Chat Room. The Chat Room is vital for her to know about some serious matters such as the Slasher.
The Chat Room shows us more layers of the different characters through their interactions. For instance, in the Saika Arc, Celty finds out about Shizuo’s rampage from Izaya through the Chat Room.
She goes to meet Shizuo as she respects him and asks him if he is alright. If it wasn’t for the Chat Room information she received, she might have probably found out about the matter at a much later date.
We see how Shizuo gets upset about Celty not killing the Slasher when she meets him and tells him about the attack from the Slasher. This is one of the instances where we see Celty going out of her way to understand a situation.
She gets more information about the Slasher from Izaya after she logs into the Chat Room. Izaya informs her about the Slasher attack on Shuuji (the man who interviewed her earlier).
The Chat Room in such instances acts as a way for Celty to find out about the Slasher and go to the right people to get reliable information.
Although Izaya doesn’t give away information quickly, he ends up helping her in the end by telling her about the Saika and how it controls people.
For Celty, getting information from the Chat Room is helpful because she cannot just roam around the town like the other characters. She doesn’t have that level of freedom.
The Chat Room in Durarara!! is interesting because it gives the audience a peek into what the various characters think about a certain topic.
Setton is among the major characters who derive information by chatting with others in the Chat Room. For Celty, the Chat Room is the place to gather the information that can help her find her attacker and solve crimes happening in Ikebukuro.
Her interactions through the Chat Room reveal her relationship with the other characters in Durarara!! Do you think Celty could have found a better alias in the Chat Room or do you think Setton suits her personality?
