The content below is entirely editable.

The butler and bodyguard of Earl Ciel Phantomhive. He often states that he is "one hell of a butler."

"This butler is capable, almighty, exceptional, the strongest and the best! Dark, fair and noble, this butler is impeccable and of great integrity, and yet sometimes has dark thoughts."

by Yana Toboso

Origin

Sebastian with his master
Sebastian with his master

Bound by a Faustian contract to twelve-year-old Earl Ciel Phantomhive, the demon known as Sebastian Michaelis serves as butler, tutor and protector to his 'young master'. According to the terms of the contract, Sebastian is obliged to aid Earl Phantomhive on his quest for revenge against the as-yet unknown parties responsible for the assassination of the Earl's parents. In exchange, Sebastian will devour Ciel's soul.

Sebastian's hand is branded with a marking similar to the one on Ciel's right eye, a sign of the contract existing between the two. This mark is also used by Sebastian to locate Ciel if they become separated.

The demon's exact age is unknown, but he claims to have known an Egyptian Pharaoh while the monarch was alive, and been responsible for the spread of the Black Plague in Europe. His intelligence and demonic strength allow him to carry out his household duties with the same ease as the more insidious orders given him by Earl Phantomhive. Though the other staff members at Phantomhive Manor make grave mistakes, he is able to find a way to make it right. His signature weapons are the manor's silver forks and knives.

Sebastian seems to have a rather sly sense of humor. His catch phrase is "Akuma de shitsuji desu kara", translated to "one hell of a butler" or "a demon and a butler", making reference to his inhuman characteristics.

Creation

Creation of the Devil and a Butler
Creation of the Devil and a Butler

In the first volume of the manga, Yana Toboso wrote that even before she made her debut as a manga artist, she always wanted to create an amazing butler, but didn't have anything specific in mind. One time when she was talking to her editor, Mr. K, he asked her about the butler idea.

First Design
First Design

Yana told Mr. K that having a butler as main character was difficult as a butler is only a supporting character, so she came with the idea of making him a devil and a butler.

While discussing character design, Yana-sensei wanted a 7-3 hairstyle but her editor wanted a "parted-in-the-middle" hairstyle because "cool guys always have that kind of style". After much talk they choose the one Mr. K came up with.

History

Vol. 12 Ch. 54
Vol. 12 Ch. 54

Sebastian first came to Ciel as the young earl was about to be sacrificed in a satanic ritual. It appears that the demon was summoned accidentally, possibly drawn by the blood, terror, suffering or innocence of the cultist's victims. After agreeing to trade his soul for the demon's power and aid, Ciel ordered Sebastian to slay his abductors. This marked the beginning of their contract. It is understood that this incident occurred three years before the events in the main story line.

The demon was given the name "Sebastian" by Ciel Phantomhive. The name formerly belonged to Ciel's dog.

Sebastian has said that in the past, he engaged in "messily sampling every dish available". His tastes have apparently since refined, since he now limits himself to consuming fewer, "high quality" souls. As a result he is starving, but states that dinner will be that much better because of it.

Appearance

Sebastian's Seal of Contract
Sebastian's Seal of Contract

Sebastian appears as a young man in his late twenties, with chin-length black hair and fingernails. His eyes are dark brown / black, except at certain times when the pupils take on a feline (vertical slit) appearance and glow blood-red. He is usually depicted in traditional Victorian-era butler garb: black trousers, tie, tailcoat and shoes, dark grey vest, white shirt and gloves to hide the Faustian mark on his left hand.

  • As a Tutor

When acting as Ciel Phantomhive's tutor, Sebastian's hair is worn tied back and he dons a pair of spectacles, though obviously he doesn't require corrective lenses. His outfit also changes, to black trousers with brown coat and vest.

  • True (Demonic) Form

Sebastian's demonic from has never been fully shown. Small hints include: glowing, feline-like eyes, longer nails / claws, longer, sharper teeth / fangs and black stiletto boots. In the anime, he sometimes appears as a crow or with showers of black feathers.

Personality (Manga)

Sebastian
Sebastian

There isn't much that rattles Sebastian Michaelis. Highly intelligent, resourceful, demonically strong and fast and with all the experience of his long life behind him, he faces nearly every situation with eerie calm. He has a rather dry, sly sense of humor and seems to enjoy poking fun at humanity in general and Earl Phantomhive in particular. In spite of this, he is very attentive to both the letter and spirit of the contract between himself and Ciel Phantomhive, carrying out the Earl's orders with speed and precision. He is highly meticulous and detail-oriented, and dislikes having the daily schedule disrupted.

Not to be trifled with...
Not to be trifled with...

Sebastian is shown to be extremely attractive to members of both sexes (most notably Madam Red, Grell and Beast), but seems to regard this pragmatically, and has no qualms about using his sex appeal to achieve his goals.

It is easy to forget that beneath the demure facade lurks the vicious heart of a demon. Sebastian routinely slaughters his master's enemies without hesitation or remorse, and the very hallmarks of his nature are cold, cruel and calculating, at least by humanity's standards. He has mused that humans are "difficult creatures" but their struggles and aspirations are nonetheless "interesting".

With that being said, his personality appears to have softened somewhat over the course of the manga, at least where the Earl is concerned. In the first few chapters it was apparent the contract between himself and Ciel Phantomhive was entirely mercenary, a predator and its prey. In more recent chapters it has been hinted that their relationship has progressed, if not to friendship, then at least a mutual respect, though this is a matter of some debate among fans. An order from the Earl forbidding Sebastian from ever lying to or betraying him has thus far never been violated.

Sebastian's Cats
Sebastian's Cats

Sebastian is decidedly a cat person, displaying a distinct aversion to canines of any variety. His stated reason is that dogs make "loud, rude noises", but this may also be a commentary on his own nature, i.e., dogs are famously loyal, the proverbial man's best friend, many times putting their master's safety over its own. By contrast, the cat is a much more solitary, independent creature, taking what it needs from humans and then going its own way. During the murder mystery arc it is discovered that Sebastian secreted a litter of kittens in the wardrobe in his room, and is also shown from time to time feeding a stray black cat. In the circus arc he forgives a tiger for biting him, preventing its handler from beating it. Sebastian's fascination with felines has led to some amusing scenes, as his usual laser-like focus goes out the window at the first sign of a cat, and Earl Phantomhive is also very allergic to cats.

Sebastian does not require sleep, only indulging in it as a luxury.

Runs with knives...and forks.
Runs with knives...and forks.

He regards Prince Soma's butler, Agni, as an unusually capable person. He was surprised to find that Agni thought of him as a friend, as no one had ever referred to him as such before. When Agni later reproached him for his apparent lack of care for the Earl, Sebastian listened to and followed his advice, though the results were mixed at best.

Finny, Maylene and Bard seem intimidated by Sebastian, though he has never been shown to be anything other than courteous and polite in his dealings with them, even when annoyed at their shortcomings. Prince Soma also seems afraid of him, though this can be understood. During the Curry arc, Sebastian roughed him up slightly and gave him a very blunt talking-to regarding the Prince's behavior.

They attend a show, and Sebastian is invited on stage, where he is bitten by a tiger. After the show, Joker approaches him and takes him to see Doctor to ensure that he is okay. While there, he learns that many of the performers have prosthetic limbs, and he investigates Beast's leg. Beast, however, accuses him of being rude, and Dagger attack to defend his sister's honor. Due to his skill in evading the attacks, Joker is impressed and invites him to join the circus. Sebastian agrees and the following day, he brings Ciel to take the entrance test, which he is able to pass with Sebastian's help.

Joker takes them on a tour of the tents, pointing out which ones are off-limits because they are the first-tier members' tents. Afterward, Sebastian tells Ciel that the children aren't present and suggests they inspect the first-tier members' tents that are protected by Snake's poisonous snakes. They work on assimilating in with the rest of the members while they wait for an opportunity to investigate further. They are given stage names, with Sebastian's name being Black. While in the practice tent, they discover that the Shinigami, William T. Spears, is also present, under the name Suit. They agree to not interfere with each other, which is made more difficult by William's assignment as Sebastian's roommate. His presence prevents Sebastian from investigating while the circus members are sleeping, because William is worried that he would be consuming souls if he was let out.

Sebastian Seducing Beast

During a performance Sebastian and Ciel are able to infiltrate the first-tier members' tents, which is possible because Sebastian captured the snakes. However, when Wendy is injured, Sebastian is asked to stand in for her and William is asked to stand in for Peter. Ciel investigates further on his own, and asks Sebastian to hurry back before the first-tier members do, in order to release the snakes. When Spears makes this more difficult by refusing to touch Sebastian, Sebastian grabs his death scythe, so they can finish the performance. After the show, he is able to hurry back and release the poisonous snakes, despite knowing that Ciel was still investigating. Ciel reveals the information he was able to gather, and asks Sebastian to investigate further. When the first-tier members learn that Ciel and Sebastian were searching in their tents, Joker leaves to consult Father, and Sebastian takes advantage of Beast's distress in order to seduce her into revealing Father's name. In the morning, Sebastian and Ciel leave for the London manor, where Ciel attempts to prepare for further investigation.

However, because Ciel is sick, Agni convinces Sebastian that part of his duty as a butler is to look after his master's health. Much to Ciel's dismay, Sebastian follows this advice, and delays him from confronting Baron Kelvin until that night. Upon reaching the manor, Ciel and Sebastian learn that Joker and Baron Kelvin were expecting their presence and had prepared dinner. Sebastian tests the wine for poison, but Ciel says he has no intention of eating. Baron Kelvin has Joker put on an impromptu circus act, using the untrained, kidnapped children for the cast. After two children are killed by their acts, Ciel orders Sebastian to put a stop to it. Ciel pulls a gun on Baron Kelvin and orders him to lead them to the kidnapped children's whereabouts. He then learns that the Baron has recreated the place Ciel was used as a sacrifice, which results in Ciel recalling his trauma and shooting him. When Joker attempts to go to his father's aid, Sebastian cuts off his left hand and orders him to not disturb his master.

Ciel orders Sebastian to burn the mansion

Doctor arrives and reveals that he used the kidnapped children to create the prosthetic limbs the cast members wear, and Sebastian comments on their exceptional quality. Doctor then grabs one of the kidnapped children and slices her open. This reminds Ciel of his own past and traumatizes him to the point of breaking down completely, screaming and vomiting out of shock. However, Sebastian is able to calm him down slightly by grasping his hand and reminding him he was 'outside of the cage' now. He holds Ciel and takes of his eye patch, telling him to call his name. Ciel orders Sebastian to kill everyone and burn the place down. Sebastian hesitantly obeys, at first protesting because their mission from the Queen was not yet completed, using the sign of his contract to use nearby candles to ignite the mansion. Ciel responds by yelling at him and reminding him of his place. After setting the building on fire, Sebastian then carries Ciel out, where they encounter Doll who had gone looking for her adoptive brother. Doll becomes upset upon learning of Joker's death and attacks them. Sebastian is later seen walking away from the mansion, and it is implied that he killed her.

Sebastian & Ciel

Afterward, Sebastian boards a train with Ciel, and is forced to join him in first class, as third class was full. There, he questions Ciel's kindness in visiting the Renbon Workhouse, where the first-tier members grew up, and comments that it is at odds with his willingness to slay the children he was supposed to save. When Ciel states that it is because they would be better off dead, Sebastian calls him arrogant. After the train ride, they get a short ride from a local to a hill that they climb to find the workhouse. There, they discover that the workhouse is in ruins, and must have been abandoned quite some time ago. Sebastian comments that Baron Kelvin lied, and he likely allowed Doctor to carve up the brothers and sisters Joker referred to for more artificial limbs. Ciel finds it darkly amusing that humans would fight to defend something nonexistent, commenting that he himself is a human like them, something to which Sebastian cheerfully agrees and states that humans are interesting.

Lyrics

1.貴方の声が色褪せようとも、盟約の歌がその胸に届きますように。(Anata no Koe ga Iroaseyou Tomo, Meiyaku no Uta ga Sono mune ni Todokimasu you ni)

Anata no Koe ga Iroaseyou Tomo, Meiyaku no Uta ga Sono mune ni Todokimasu you ni


Setsuna kibou hagare * Ishiki ushinai tooku ni kikoeru namida
Konya inochi hikare * Gouka mushibami ankoku ni hisomi nagara
Mangetsu no yami ni ochi * Aruji ni tsukaeru tsubasa
Zetsubou wo mitsumete iru * Sono kodoku wo mamoreru no nara

I guard you * Donna ni kurai kohaku yori * Donna ni aoi kami yori * Donna ni akai kioku yori * Kuruoshiku
Subete wo ushinau toki ga kite mo * Saigo no itami ni kae temo * Sore ga, yurushi erareru naraba

Risei garasu kuzure * Ketsui kage de amaku kuraku yurameku honou
Karada shisen kizamare * Kizuna hinari biishikisura kesuri nagara
Reisetsu to chi no umi de * Shi no uta kanaderu kaina
Zetsumei no hi ga tomori * Kono madori ga kienu no naraba

Kill me tight * Konna ni shiroi nukumori mo * Konna ni nigai omoi mo * Konna ni tooi hohoemi mo * Itooshiku
Kirisaku kotoba ga yami ni kie * Kono mi ga uta ni kawatte mo * Towa no chikai mamoreru naraba

Kowareta hitomi no oku namuru kyouki * Seiyaku no chi ga furisosogu

Aganau shinkou no kuchibiru * Tokareru kokoro no toiki * Kasukani mayotta yubisaki * Furesoude

Yaiba to hikari ga hashitte * Gouku no umi ni tokeyuku * Sorega, yurushi erareru naraba.

2. 月の雨 (Tsuki no ame)

Tsuki no ame
Ame no hi wa niwa ni dette * Sarigenaku kikoetekuru gen no oto mi wo yudane nagara * Akai bara te orou
Ka no yume ga tsuzuku nara * Fuyu no yuki danro no hi mo * Nemuru iki kienai you ni * Sono mi wo tsutsumou

Aa tatakai toki ga tomaru no nara * Kioku wo kome anata dake mitsume tsuzuke you
Aa sono yubi ga kono kami ni fureteireba * Kumo no ito no you ni tada amaku setsunaku

Tsuki ga kie fukai mori * Kiri no shiro hitomi no koe * Sono mei ga kudaru no naraba * Mabuta wo tozasou

Aa odayakana tsukiakari terasunara * Uso no kakera yakusoku no bashou ni kakushiyuku
Aa keiyaku no utsukushiki mezashi ga * Koyoi momata kono mune wo fukaku mayowaseru

Aa nozomu mama omoi ga kanau nara * Hikari no ame waga mi wo kana de kowareyuku
