About

Ravel Phenex is one of the main female protagonists in the light novel and anime series High School DxD. She is the only daughter and youngest child of the noble Phenex clan.

Initially introduced as the arrogant Bishop in Riser Phenex's peerage, Ravel develops feelings for Issei after witnessing his victory over her eldest brother. She is later traded to Lady Phenex, then to Issei, becoming his second Bishop and trusted advisor.

Born into the legendary Phenex clan of immortal Devils, Ravel inherited their signature regenerative abilities and control over hellfire. Despite her young age, she is highly intelligent, mature, and adept at strategy.

After joining Issei's peerage, Ravel takes on managerial duties like scheduling his activities and scouting potential allies. She develops strong romantic feelings but initially conceals them behind a tsundere front.

Ravel's brilliant tactics and peerless strategizing abilities earn her great respect, contributing crucially to many of Issei's victories in Rating Games through optimal positioning and precise power allocations.

When first introduced, Ravel came across as spoiled, snobbish, and dismissive of Issei's abilities. However, she revealed a well-mannered, elegant demeanor devoted to assisting her brother, Riser.

After joining Issei, Ravel blossomed into a kind yet stern young woman. She is protective of Issei, vetting potential servants, scouting contracts, and micromanaging his activities with resolute focus.

Ravel retains an arrogant, stubborn streak, bickering childishly with Issei's other love interests, like Koneko, over his affections. But she backs this up with unparalleled strategist talents that secure hard-fought victories.

Her appearance matches her refined, ladylike manner. With a petite, toned physique, Ravel has long, twin-tailed blonde hair with drill curls and dark blue eyes. Her outfits are stylish yet modest, from purple dresses to the Kuoh uniform with her trademark black sweater.

During Rating Games, Ravel dons a crimson uniform featuring a red shirt, white tie, red skirt, purple cape, and satchel - fit for commanding the battlefield.
