Boris Rubanenko (Борис Леонович Руванэнко, Boris Leonovich Rubanenko) is the leader of the psychic organization The Omega Order, and is one of the most powerful psychics of his time. Originally living in Stalingrad (currently Volgograd, Russia), he and his little sister, Ivanka, survived an anti-psychic inquisition spearheaded by Soviet premier Brezhnev and defected to West Germany. However, the Omega Order still maintains ties to the Soviet Union and is a formidable threat to world peace.

Before leaving for Japan, Boris proposes marriage to Khina, who accepts.
Some of Boris's specific psychic abilities include:
- Blood Rose (Кровь роза, Krov' roza): Boris conjures a rose, shows it to the victim, and vanishes it right before his or her eyes. The rose then re-materializes in the victim's heart, the blossom sticking out from his or her chest. There is a sharp sensation of pain, and then a series of poisons, coated on the rose's stem, incapacitate and ultimately kill the victim. The Blood Rose was used on Artemis Gilliam in Episode II, and Ivanka Rubanenko in Episode III.
"Rubanenko" is a Russian family name. It is a tribute to Rubeus, a villain from Sailor Moon.
Boris's Chinese civen name, "Lìxióng", means "Strong hero" in English. His family name, "Táo" is a reference to Taoism.
