Ile and Nel are two of Riser Phenex's Pawns[1].


Ile and Nel are two very young girls with turquoise hair, which they keep tied to one side of their head with a yellow ribbon (opposite to their sister), and blue eyes. Both of their outfits consist of gym uniforms, which consist of white t-shirts with blue accents, black leggings, and blue sneakers over knee-high socks, similar to the Kuoh Academy's girls' gym uniforms, albeit without the logo. They also wear an orange wristband on their left wrist. Both of their chainsaws are colored blue, but they carry them in different-colored gym bags when not in use (Ile carries a blue bag, while Nel carries a red bag)[2].


Despite their innocent appearance, Ile and Nel are very dangerous and will cut down their opponents without a second thought, taking a playful amusement while chasing their target to do so. However the twins have demonstrated a habit of underestimating their opponents which in their fight with Issei resulted in their humiliating defeat[1].


Not much is known about Ile and Nel, other than at some point before the series, they were revived as Devils by Riser[3].


The Red Dragon Emperor's Awakening

Ile and Nel first appeared in Volume 2 at the Occult Research Club, when Riser introduces his peerage to Rias after the their master decide to have a Rating Game against Rias to solve the engagement between the two[3]. During the Rating Game, they fought against Issei in the replicated gymnasium. While they initially gained the upper hand by keeping him on his toes, they both lost to him after being one of the first victims (alongside Mira) to be hit by his Dress Break, before being finally taken out of the fight when Akeno destroyed the building[1].

The Legend of Oppai Dragon and his Lively Companions

In the Extra Life of DX.1, Ile and Nel participated in their master's rematch against Rias. They both attempted to get payback against Issei from last time but were intercepted by Xenovia who faces them off instead. The two were defeated thus retired from the game.
