Shion Pavlichenko (紫苑・パブリチェンコ, Shion Paburichenko) is a character in Darker than Black, also known as Darker than Black: The Black Contractor (DARKER THAN BLACK ー黒の契約者ー, Dākā Zan Burakku -Kuro no Keiyakusha-), a Japanese anime television series created and directed by Tensai Okamura and animated by Bones.

Suoh's twin brother, recognized by various organizations as Izanagi, the counterpart to the Izanami entity that has possessed Yin. He was believed to have lost his right eye due to an accident with a falling meteor core fragment during the Tokyo explosion, and that this incident also turned him into a Contractor. It is later revealed that he was in fact born a Contractor, a unique occurrence according to Mao's words, and that the meteorite incident was actually a fake memory he put into his sister's mind. His Contractual payment is to lose the use of his legs every time he uses his power, forcing him to constantly use a wheelchair. His power allows him to create a near-perfect clone of anything, with only one flaw from the original. He also displays telepathic abilities, being able to mentally contact his sister and instruct her in how to get to safety during an attack on their home; though perhaps this could have been traces left in his sister memories triggered by events he and his father planned ahead. He leaves behind a clue for Suoh telling her he has left for Japan, which drives her to leave Russia to find him. He is reunited with Suoh in Hell's Gate, where he wishes for a world where Suoh can live a normal life before being killed by Izanami.
