"If there is but even a little thread to use for escape to the depths of despair, I will simply hold on to it. That is the ability of humans. But it is their choice, whether to grab it or not." Ciel Phantomhive

Overview

Ciel Phantomhive is the son of Vincent and Rachel Phantomhive, he is head of the Phantomhive noble Family, he also runs the Funtom company, which manufacturers toys, sweets and food. Ciel made a contract with Demon Sebastian Michaelis, to fullfill his revenge against those who killed his parents.

Creation

" I drew Ciel as a really manly character, he's got a fixed courage and displays a strength that surpasses adults. He's never hesitantly worrying and just moves forward withught looking back at his past. since he is individualistic I think that, like Sebastian, He is kind of a nasty guy"  Yana Toboso


History 

          Ciel lived a normal life until he was 10. On his tenth birthday, the Phantomhive mansion caught on fire and a tragedy struck - his parents died and he became the heir to the Phantomhive estate and company. Not much is known about his demonic contract with Sebastian Michaelis, all that is known is that Sebastian will listen to all of his commands in exchange for Ciel's soul.

          He has a fiancée (who is also his cousin) named Elizabeth Esel Cordelia Middleford. In his mansion, he has five servants: Tanaka, Finian, Maylene, Bard, and Sebastian but the only competent one is Sebastian. His other servants don't really do their jobs well.

Personality

         After the accident about his parents, he became more distant to people and doesn't really laugh or smile often. Since he is only twelve years old and running a company business, he's very mature and composed. He hides his hurt emotions by having a rough exterior that is seen as clever and bratty. Since he doesn't want to look weak, he tends to not emphathize with people and will ignore things he does not understand. He still has a compassionate side, it's just people don't realize it because he hides it so well.
