The mongooses are skeptical that the clanking robotic snake in front of them can defeat them, scoffing at the Cobrot's choice to use hypnosis to subdue them. There opinions change when the snake hypnotic eyes go into action.
I didn't want to use the traditional Kaa eyes with the rings of colour (of which DA has quite a large stock). Instead, the Cobrot's eyes glow bright, spellbinding red that will put their subject into a trance in just a few seconds. Rather than speaking, the robot transmits it's commands psychically, so it's sort of like mind control.
