Likely sharing the frustrations of her player, Ravel skipped the pleasantries and went right to the part wherein she'd teach these evildoers a lesson or two. Exerting her mesmerism, she possessed the one known as the Anaconda. The heroic blonde exerted her will over the villainous blonde, forcing her into a hypnotized stupor and subjecting her to the cruel mercy of delivering swift punishment to her ally. She turned to the unsuspecting brunette.
"Hmm? What is it, Blanche?" Ravel heard her say (even from a distance thanks to her refined hearing), unaware of what had befallen her accomplice. "Why are you looking at me lik-AAGGHHHH!!!"
In the blink of an eye, Anaconda used her arms much like her namesake of an animal would use its powerful body, and pulped every bone in the other woman's slender frame!
"You hurt Assssssp!"
Before Miss Phenex could ask herself where the new voice came from (or wonder why a godawful smell accompanied it), the answer made itself...or himself...very obvious, what with him springing from a hiding place behind her and using his snake-like physique to wrap it around her teenage body! He didn't stop there, as he applied superhuman pressure in order to exact vengeance, hurting Ravel in a quite uncomfortable and personal manner! Contorting his horrible excuse for a head, the serpentine mutant faced her.
"I know a telepattttttthhhhh when I sssssee one, little girl." he said, cliche lisp very apparent and befitting. "You may have tricked Anaconda, but it will take far more of an effort againsssst Ssssslither! Behold asssss I crusssshhhhh the life out of your petite body, pound by pound!"
As Slither squeezed, Ravel found that his distraction of an attack had temporarily broken her psychic hold on Anaconda...and the latter was horrified to see what she had done, apparently aware of what was happening when she took control of her motor functions! She wasted no time in whipping her gaze over to the schoolgirl, then shooting her arm forward to smash her nose in! And even as her injuries regenerated, the young demon couldn't help but think that 4 snake-themed crooks causing bedlam in the same city were beyond a coincidence...
OOC: Ravel's possessed Anaconda's feeble mind and used her to crush Asp (who's in critical condition and in no position to fight back). She was, however, caught by surprise with a sneak attack courtesy of the mutant snake-man Slither.
He's crushing her, causing 1w of damage and putting her in a negative Situation...restricting all movement-based Actions. Unopposed, he'll continue to squeeze more White Stones out of her until she's out cold or dead...whichever comes first.
To make matters worse, Slither's attack has distracted Miss Phenex long enough for Anaconda to break free from her spell, and she retaliated with a long-range punch, knocking ANOTHER 1w from her health pool. Luckily, her Instant Healing Factor has repaired the damage right away.

"Oh boy... You two... Really should not have done that." Ravel warned via telepathy. "I am a proud Devil of the House of Phenex, my wounds will heal faster than you can make them. You two will not be so lucky."
and with that she burst into flames again.
2 into Telepathy to tell Slither, and Anaconda they dun f***ed up.
Unfazed by the combined threat posed by Slither and Anaconda, Ravel let the pair know via her psychic gifts that they crossed a very thin line in hurting her. Her irked attitude wasn't due to the physical damage she managed to bounce back from quickly. No, it was due to the psychological damage made by their bold affronts. She figured that getting her hands dirtier wouldn't be too bad at this point, and thus triggered her personal field of flame!
Of course, since Slither was violating her personal space, he was the one that took full damage from the act. Uncoiling off the teen, Ravel had to take small pleasure in seeing the loathsome ex-Brotherhood member writhe painfully on the floor, covered in flames. He was struggling to do so, but he was slowly rising to his feet, a feat not shared with Cottonmouth. All while Anaconda grit her teeth; she was not as eager in attacking as before...
OOC: Ravel's managed to shake Slither off using the Immolation option of her Phoenix Fire action, and he's taken his fair share of damage. Anaconda is waiting for an opening to attack once more.
Ravel was determined to punish these two criminals lest they become a huge problem to the populace. Slither had been temporarily incapacitated by her ring of fire that suddenly sprung up around her on metnal command, but that still left Anacoda whose power let her strike from a somewhat-safe distance.
"Fun's over, girlie!" she yelled at the high-schooler. "You'll be lucky to be in a hospital when we're through with you...me and the rest of the Serpent Society'll see to that!"
Miss Phenex didn't know anything about these people other than the impression that they were international criminals...but she had to wonder what this "Serpent Society" had to be about and why Tokyo had their undivided attention. In any case, that matter took a backseat when she unfurled her wings and unleashed a searing wave of ignited wind! Slither hadn't had much to defend himself with...and was left as nothing but a scorch mark on the pavement! Anaconda sent another one of her fists shooting at the smaller blonde, but it caught ablaze as she did not expect that sort of counterattack! The rest of her body followed as she was sent flying several yards backwards! It was hard to tell whether she was still alive after that, but Ravel would have to actually care to notice to even tell...
OOC: Ding dong, the mutant's dead. Slither has been reduced to a cinder, and Anaconda was knocked back, presumably out of the fight.
Right as Ravel Phenex waved her worry of any legitimate threat the Serpent Society may pose to her, much less the world at large, her finely-tuned hearing picked up on something before she could walk away for good.
If she had to take a good guess, it belong to the down-and-out police officers that, at first glance, seemed to have lost their lives fighting off Asp, Anaconda, and possibly Slither...but were simply knocked about before the super-criminals could slay them. One of them managed to recover enough strength to call out for aid, and may have just seen the blonde schoolgirl in action, perhaps guessing that her demonic powers went beyond offensive ability?
The only downside to that would be that, in order to heal others, she must shed tears of pain or sadness. But would she be quick enough to save the lives of these fine men and women?
OOC: There are cops in need of healing, apparently.

Ravel sighed resigned and went into a nearby food court, grabbing a fist full of onion pieces from a fast food kiosk she took a couple of large inhales as she made her way to each officer and exposed them to her tears.
6 in Phenex Tears to heal 2 officers of 1w each
8 in Mesmerism to erase anyone in the area's memories of me possessing demonic powers or helping in any way.
The young demon shook her head in fake defeat as she made her rounds in search for a trigger for her curative tears. And that trigger just so happened to be one of nature's most pungent odors: onion. Grabbing fistfuls of the ground-dwelling vegetable, she huffed them for all they were worth. Soon enough, the waterworks began. Drops began to fall from her big blue eyes, which upon contact began to seal wounds and stop blood.
Before her were at least two perfectly healthy officers of the law. And before they could question Ravel's involvement in the affair, or hell, her powers, she cast her mesmerism and wiped the recent memories of anyone within a radius of 2 blocks.
"...Code 10 on Channel 1, Code 10 on Channel 1." said a dispatch agent over a police scanner mere yards away from where Ravel stood. "We've got multiple suspects present in Shibuya. Use Code 0; parties are armed and dangerous..."
"Wait...another emergency? I just came back from one..." said one of the officers present, mind-wiped and defaulting to what he last remembered, not noticing Ravel.
OOC: Ravel's healed 2 of the cops there. However, there's an emergency with several armed-and-dangerous individuals present in Shibuya.
Ravel made herself a blur of speed and stealth as she darted towards the district of Shibuya, no doubt throwing herself into a progressively-dangerous situation. Perhaps it was Issei's impact on her life that changed her stance on mortals, or perhaps it was some sort of burgeoning heroism in play, but she was not about to let super-criminals like the likes of the Serpent Society disrupt the hustle and bustle of Japan's capital, much less the rest of the world.
She was getting closer and closer to her objective as the surroundings passed her by almost inconspicuously, allowing her to zip through the crowds and traffic with relative ease. One could only hope she reach the crime scene quickly before any tragedy would befall the people of Tokyo...
OOC: You may-or-may-not reach Shibuya in the next Panel or two.

Ravel sighed as she sprouted her flaming wings and took flight. "Issei you are gonna owe me big time for this." She said thinking of all the trouble she was gonna get from her family, and the higher ups for exposing devil powers this publically.
Grumbling to herself, the precocious demoness flared her hot wings to life and soared through the sky! She was lucky that she was reaching fighter-jet speeds (in other words, becoming an indistinguishable orange trail), otherwise someone below her would have recorded her taking off and leaked it to social media. It was far from a subtle method of transportation, but the ends justified the means.
Eventually, she spotted yet another police blockade, with its officers actively engaging a group of garishly-dressed individuals. Every suspect barring one was counterattacking with a mix of abilities, weapons, or skills. The member that wasn't directly involved in the firefight stood directly in the middle of a series of concentric circles of what appeared to be...runes...each exuding magical wafts of power!
Just what were these foreigners up to?
OOC: Ravel's finally found the other criminals. There are at least a dozen of them, and one of them is surrounded by runes.
