Sebastian Michaelis



Okay, This is my another Favorite Anime. The story just getting interesting for me even I don't really know the whole story. 

HISTORY

Ciel was a regular child in the past who maintained a cheerful disposition. Although this is true, as a child, he suffered greatly from poor health. He was seen having an asthma attack in volume 7. He would often smile and play with his family and Elizabeth. Elizabeth said that when his parents were alive, the Phantomhive manor was full of smiles.
On his tenth birthday, he was running through the manor and came across his dead mother, father, and dog. He calls for help, and runs into Tanaka, who tries to get him to flee. Before he can say much, however, he is attacked from behind from an unseen assailant who then grabs Ciel.
Ciel was than sold, and his kidnappers comment that he is "rare" and is worth more than two people. Someone buys him, and his new owners brand him, giving him the mark of a "noble beast". He cries, saying that he's hurt and dirty and he wants to go home. He is next seen chained in a cage while masked adults look on, remarking about what a splendid evening they will have. Ciel sadly wonders why no one is there to help him. One of the masked adults then places him on a table for his sacrifice and he is stabbed, while other adults look on gleefully, clapping.

Sebastian is summoned to him, although how is not shown. He appears in his true demon form. He tells Ciel that what has been sacrificed will never return. He asks Ciel if he wants to make a contract and have his wishes granted or not. Ciel says that he wants power to take revenge on those who did this to him. The ones who tried to sacrifice him try to stop him from talking, but Ciel agrees to make a contract. Sebastian asks him where he wants his seal, saying that the more visible it is, the stronger the contract is. Ciel tells him that anywhere is fine and that he want's a power stronger that anyone else's. Sebastian calls him greedy and decides to put it on his right eye. Ciel screams, then commands him to kill his attackers. He then burns the building. Ciel orders Sebastian to protect and never betray him, to obey his orders no matter what, and to never lie. After that, the first place they go is to the Royal Hospital where his aunt worked. She arranges for a carriage to bring him back to his manor. He and Sebastian view the ruined manor, then go to his and his parents' graves. Sebastian leaves briefly and when Ciel returns, the manor is as good as new. Ciel later takes his place as the Earl of Phantomhive and the Watchdog of the Queen.

Ciel was not always the apathetic child he is now. When Sebastian first started to serve him, Ciel was shown as little ten-year-old boy who was very picky until Sebastian told him off. Later, it is shown that they learn to get along better and their relationship gets softer and slowly progresses to what they are today.

PLOT
In a manor house on the outskirts of Victorian era London, butler Sebastian Michaelis serves Lord Earl Ciel Phantomhive, the orphaned twelve-year-old head of an English noble family and a toy and candy empire, who serves directly under the Queen as her "guard dog". Master Phantomhive's parents were murdered when Ciel was little. As a result, he made a pact with a demon asking for vengeance upon those who had disgraced him and the Phantomhive name, in exchange for his soul. Now, Sebastian carries out any task required by his Master, perfectly solving problems plaguing the Queen of England with ease, due to his demonic lineage and the Faustian contract with Ciel.

CHARACTER

EARL CIEL PHANTOMHIVE 

The business-savvy, egotistical 12-year-old (13-year-old as of chapter 14) head of the English Phantomhive noble family, taking over after the deaths of his parents, Lord Vincent Phantomhive and Lady Rachel Phantomhive. He runs the Funtom Company, which manufactures toys and sweets, with the later addition of a food branch after winning a Royle Warrant. His right eye, which is usually covered with a black eyepatch, bears a pentacle, the sign of the Faustian contract he made with the demon Sebastian. Sebastian says that the mark on Ciel is proof of their contract. He also says that demons mark their prey so that they can locate them.

  

Ciel is a young male with blue eyes and dark navy blue hair. As the head of the noble Phantomhive family, he typically dresses in a way that suits his standing, and has an extensive and elegant wardrobe.
He nearly always wears a black eye patch over his right eye, not because he is missing it, but because that is where the sign of his Faustian Contract with Sebastian Michaelis is hidden. Typically, he wears a black eye patch with a single cord with his day wear, and a medical-looking, white patch which fastens with two cords when at home or while in disguise.
 Ciel wears two rings. One is an ornate silver piece holding an emerald-cut deep blue stone, a one-of-a-kind family ring that has been passed down through his family for generations. He wears this on his left thumb, as it is an adult's ring and too large for him.
The other is a gold seal, or signet, ring in the form of the family crest, worn on his right hand, and used to stamp the wax seal on documents. The seal was given to him by Angelina Durless after his return, telling him it is the only one left as the other rings are destroyed in the fire.

more info on Black Butler.

SEBASTIAN MICHAELIS


The butler of the Phantomhive household and acts as Ciel's bodyguard. Sebastian's appearance is similar to that of Ciel's father; this has been revealed to be the cause of Ciel, who asked the demon to take the form of the previous Earl, Vincent Phantomhive. Sebastian often describes himself through the phrase "I am one hell of a butler." Being a butler and a bodyguard are two jobs he is completely devoted to. He follows Ciel's orders faithfully, however, he does not seem to be overly concerned about Ciel's well-being most of the time as he insults and irritates Ciel to see his reaction. However, occasionally he does appear to care about Ciel's well-being.

Sebastian takes on the appearance of a tall, male adult with black hair and red eyes. He typically dresses in an outfit consisting of black trousers, a tailcoat, vest, with the PhantomhiveCrest on his shirt cuffs and tie. He also sports a poc
ket watch with a chain, anda chained silver lapel pin bearing the Phantomhive Crest, traditionally worn by the house's head butler.
His white gloves conceal the mark of his Faustian Contract with Ciel Phantomhive on his left hand. Occasionally, he removes his white gloves, revealing permanently black fingernails.
Sebastian's demonic form has never been fully shown. Details of this form include high-heeled stiletto boots, a shower of black feathers, sharp claws, glowing fuchia irises, slitted pupils, sharper, and longer teeth. Prior to transforming, Sebastian says several times that his form is unpleasant to look at and just looking at it drove Ash Landers to hysterics, screaming that he was "unclean".
