"Ciel Phantomhive" ("シエル・ファントムハイヴ", "Shieru Fantomuhaivu") is the true head of the Phantomhive house.[3] He is also the identical twin brother of Ciel Phantomhive and Elizabeth Midford's original fiancé.

Character Outline

"Ciel" looks identical to his brother and they have been stated to be mirror twins, but unlike Ciel, he does not bear a Faustian contract mark on his right eye. Another noticeable difference is that while Ciel's bangs curl to the right, "Ciel's" bangs curl to the left.

He is an individual who exudes confidence and remains unruffled, even when accused of being an impostor.[4]

"Ciel" has a notably more confident aura than his brother; he is usually seen smiling widely, laughing and playing with Elizabeth.[5] He also did not suffer from debilitating asthma[6] as his twin does.


Blue Cult Arc

"Ciel" arrives at Phantomhive Manor, where he is greeted by the servants there.[7]

Later, Ciel Phantomhive and Sebastian Michaelis also enter the manor. "Ciel" hears them and descends the stairs, to their collective shock. He scolds a dismayed Ciel for getting drenched and assures him that he will never leave his side again and that he has come home. When Finnian states that it is impossible for there to be two Ciels, "Ciel" asserts that he is real. Finnian adds that he knew something was wrong when "Ciel" came home and calls him an impostor. Amused, "Ciel" declares that the true head of the Phantomhive house, Ciel Phantomhive, is actually him.[8]

"Ciel" muses that this is the first time he has actually met Sebastian. He promptly asks him how dare he "do that" to him on "that day". Sebastian affirms "Ciel's" statement that he is "Earl Ciel Phantomhive", to the servants' disbelief. At that moment, Tanaka arrives at the staircase and addresses "Ciel", stating that he was not in his room when he brought his tea. He reveals that he knew all along that there were two Ciels; twins in fact, to the bewildered servants.[9]

An amused "Ciel" chides Ciel for confusing the servants by impersonating him. He adds that Tanaka told him that he used losing everything in the fire as an opportunity to hide the fact that he was a twin and calls Ciel a naughty boy for doing so. Ciel is hesitant when "Ciel," asks him why he made such an outrageous lie and states that he will not be angry with him. Ciel, then, mutters that he is "the spare" to "Ciel Phantomhive", heir to the Earl of Phantomhive.[10]



  • "Ciel"'s birthday (December 14) is also the date of Prince Albert's death. Coincidentally, in the second season of the anime, the "deathday" of "Ciel"'s twin brother (August 26) is Albert's birthday.[12]
    • December 14 is also the peak day of the Geminids meteor shower which occurs between December 7 and 17 every year.[13]
