Ciel Phantomhive

Ciel is the son of an extremely wealthy household named ‘Phantomhives’. As a young boy (at least 10) the manor that he lived in burned down and he was taken away to become ‘pure’, his parents died in the fire and were put together as one by the angel Angela, Angela is seen numerous times in Kuroshitsuji. After, Ciel is captivated in a cage with many other lords and he is force fed disgusting mixtures and horrible foods.
Ciel eventually becomes so depressed that he begins to plead and beg to be saved by someone. This ‘someone’ turns out to be a demon who makes a contract with Ciel to be his butler and serve his every wish until it’s time to eat his soul.
Ciel has a betrothed (as seen in episode/chapter2) named Elizabeth Midford, she is the same age as Ciel and is always dressing him in crazy clothes. Ciel doesn’t want to marry Elizabeth for he sees her as annoying and is always trying to have her own way with him.
