Riser Phenex is a pure-blood High-class Devil and the third son of the House of Phenex. He is incredibly arrogant as a result of his heritage and looks down on low class Devils. He had a marriage contract with Rias Gremory, which she contested in the form of a Rating Game, although he eventually won. After Issei crashed the wedding ceremony and declared his intention to break the contract and take Rias back, a match between them was organized, with Riser losing and subsequently developing a phobia of Dragons. Later on, he overcomes his fear of Dragons with Tannin and Issei's help and becomes significantly less arrogant.
