The Director is a crime lord who runs Ruska Roma as well as John Wick's adopted mother. She is played by Anjelica Houston in the film John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.

The Director is in charge of Ruska Roma, a crime organization which has an understanding with the High Table. In Parabellum, she opts to protect John Wick, giving him safe passage to Casablanca and accepting his ticket despite his status as excommunicado.

As a punishment for helping Wick, she was forced to show fealty by the Adjudicator with the support of Zero and his men by having her 'helping hands' get stabbed.


She is heard referring to John as "Jardani" which turns out to be John's real name. She acts like John's 'mother figure' in a sense that she raised John in her tribe, since John is an orphan.

She is seen judging the females in her tribe on their ballet skills, until they are bruised. Meanwhile the males learn martial arts.
