Raphael says that Lijuan will every weapon she can, including using Elena's inexperience in handling my new body, to hurt her—just to break from Ennui. She's claim it was about power and politics—but in the end, it's for her amusement to "play" with Elena who's become a new toy, one that's caught her interest.
