Lord Aleister Chamber (アレイスト チェンバー, Areisuto Chienbā), the Viscount of Druitt, is a nobleman well-known for his fine tastes and parties held during the social season.

Appearance

Aleister, as commented by many nobles, is an extremely handsome man with hair that "shines like the sun."[1] He has shaggy, light-blond hair and lavender eyes.

He regularly dresses in elegant clothing that consists of a white suit, a pocket square, and an ascot tie accompanied by accessories such a brooch and white gloves. According to Ciel Phantomhive, Aleister bears slight resemblance to his nephew.[2]

Personality

Aleister is a flamboyant, melodramatic man, who tends to compare things to women and girls; he particularly associates them with "robins." Furthermore, he is an avid fan of arts and food.[3] He is also fond of blue lobsters, and he occasionally wears a blue lobster hat.[4]

Aleister harbors a passionate interest in black magic,[5] and holds underground auctions in correspondence at which he sells women as pets, for body parts, or even as individuals to be used in ritual sacrificing. However, he does not necessarily partake in these morbid activities, and simply captures the victims and facilitates the transactions.[6] When he was caught engaging in these auctions, he was able to escape a jail sentence through bribery.[3]

History

Aleister has stated that his alma mater is Weston College, the same school his nephew Edgar Redmond formerly attended before his expulsion.[2] At one point during his life, Aleister attained a doctor's license.[7]

Manga's Synopsis

Jack the Ripper Arc

Aleister hosts an elegant party which numerous nobleman attend.[8] Ciel, deliberately dressed as a young lady, dances with Sebastian Michaelis and attracts his attention. He approaches and compliments Ciel, calling him a "robin." He makes several seduction attempts, oblivious to Ciel's discomfort.[9]

After Ciel's insistence, Aleister leads him to a hidden room,[10] where he releases a soporific gas that renders Ciel unconscious.[11]

Aleister auction

Aleister tries to auction Ciel Phantomhive.

In an underground auction, Aleister addresses the audience, announcing that Ciel, who is tied and blindfolded, is the valuable item they have been anticipating. He offers a range of possibilities: Ciel can be kept in the cage, be played with, used in a ceremony, or parts of him could be sold according to what the customer prefers. He begins the bid at 1000, but then, the light in the room mysteriously vanishes. Aleister loses consciousness, and the police arrives shortly thereafter. He is assumed to be put behind bars.[12]

Curry Contest Arc

Aleister is one of the judges at the curry contest, along with Chef Higharm and Mr. Carter. Ciel deduces that Aleister was able to bribe his way out of being arrested by the Scotland Yard.[3] As the chefs began cooking, Aleister theatrically favors Agni's usage of royal blue lobster.[13] Like the other judges, he dismisses the entrants who used curry powder.[14]

Initially, Aleister and the judges are skeptical of Sebastian's curry doughnut, but when he cuts it open, he is astonished to discover that the curry is inside. Once he tastes it, he is captivated; he praises the curry doughnut as revolutionary, and compares it to a cute, young girl.[15]

Due to their different flavors, he, along with the other judges, cannot make a decision and declare a tie between Agni and Sebastian, which is later overturned by Queen Victoria.[16][17]

Ship Voyage Arc

Aleister's Phoenix Pose

Aleister's Phoenix Pose

Aleister shows up at the Aurora Society's meeting on the Campania, the reason insinuated is that he has a doctor's license. He shows his changed Phoenix pose that was formulated in accordance to his own style. He sees Ciel and Sebastian in disguise and comes over to talk to them, asking if they are beginners. Ciel hides behind Sebastian as the latter responds that he saw an article in the newspaper about it. Aleister says that Madam Samuel's 'lightlippedness' is troublesome as she leaks their secrets so 'easilyque'. He then notices Ciel and asks if they had ever met before and Ciel hastily declines. Aleister agrees, saying that if they had met before, he wouldn't forget such a beautiful boy such as Ciel. He notes that it's pitiful for him to have a bandage over his eye and Ciel claims that his father said that by coming here, the doctors will heal it. The Viscount assures him that 'Rian' would be able to and that he is eager to stare into both of Ciel's eyes. Aleister corrects himself, muttering that it is decadent the way it is now, so one eye is more than enough.[18]

When the meeting begins, he points out the founder, Rian Stoker, to Ciel and Sebastian. They watch as Rian introduces himself by reciting the Aurora Society's greeting and begins explaining the nature of the complete salvation of mankind through medicine where it is able to revive the dead. He tests the medicine out on Margaret Connor and when she begins to rise, the crowd including Aleister is amazed and astonished. However Margaret begins attacking viciously and he flees from the scene.[19]

Aleister and the Device

Consequently, it is revealed that he has left to Rian's first class room in order to steal the device that can render the Bizarre Dolls useless and immobile. He then encounters Sebastian and Ciel in the first class passenger hallway. When they acknowledged him, he asks who are they since he has never seen them without a disguise. However, he brushes it off negligently, claiming that since he is well known in society as the incarnation of beauty, it is rare for someone to not know him. Sebastian asks why he is still on the ship when there are Bizarre Dolls everywhere, and he responds saying that there is something he needs to protect, even if he must risk his life on the sinking ship. The corpses are just like puppets to him. After saying that, he says he has spoken too much. Sebastian quickly recites the Aurora Society's greeting and they all join in. The Viscount acknowledges them as comrades after the recitation of the greeting and notes that he does remember their faces somewhere.[20]

Ciel then asks if that is the device to stop the Bizarre Dolls. Aleister is shocked and asks where he got that information and tells them that if they want to know anything about the coming of a new Aurora thanks to medicine, they will have to follow him. He guides them to the first class passenger lounge as he has his handful of men carried it, with one of them being the Undertaker. Aleister asks for the device to be set down gently, saying that it is worth more than their lives. Aleister announces that he won't activate the device yet since the 'cast' is incomplete. Just then, Rian appears, along with Grell Sutcliff and Ronald, and he yells at Aleister for stealing the device. The Viscount of Druitt is unaffected by his anger and with open arms, dramatically welcomes him. He claims that tonight the empire Rian built will collapse like Pompeii and as a replacement, Aleister's new realm will be brought forth. With the power of the device, he will create a new empire. The one who conquered eternity shall rule over everything else with corruption and decadence. It will be called the Aurora Empire.[21]

He overhears Grell wanting to kill him and he interrupts his annihilation plan, threatening to destroy the device by pouring his wine over it and Ronald quickly stops Grell from attacking. He laughs that this is 'real power' in which he could win against them all with just a glass of wine.[22] Bizarre Dolls break into the room, and Ciel asks him to activate it. He says he will only do so if Ciel calls him 'Caesar' with the 'lovely little' mouth of his, calling Ciel 'cock robin'. The others begin fending off the Bizarre Dolls, and he compares the battle to Nero

They are forced to recite his version of the Aurora Society's greeting with him and pose Aleister's adapted form of the phoenix, with one hand behind the hand while the other is stretched from the body.[23]

Aleister, pleased, declares that he'll demonstrate how the dead army prostrates itself before him and presses a button on the device only to discover that it doesn't work hence the Bizarre Dolls continue their rampage. He then yells at Rian that the device he built is defective. Ciel is appalled to realize that it wasn't Aleister who built it. The latter points out that he can't build something like this and he only decided to borrow it.[24]

Grell decides to end Aleister's life and lunges towards him, frightening the Viscount. However before Grell was able to land a blow, the Undertaker covers the Viscount, one of his hands stopping the death scythe, shocking everyone. The Undertaker says that it would be sad to lose such an amusing man, that is Aleister. The said Viscount is then portrayed having fainted due to shock.[25][26]

Later, it was revealed that he survived from the Campania incident.[27]

Public School Arc

Aleister attends the per-festivities of Weston College's annual cricket tournament. When he arrives, he chastises his nephew, Edgar Redmond, for being rude to one of Lawrence Bluer's sisters.[2]

Anime's Synopsis

Shard of Hope

Aleister acts as a judge in an ice sculpture contest at the Frost Fair. He is the only one to rate Lau's pornographic statue highly. However, like the other judges, he raves about Sebastian's work, comparing him to Noah. Afterward, when the thieves who originally stole the Shard of Hope threaten to bomb the place, he also highly rates his skating skills, which Sebastian uses to take out the thieves.

Curry Contest

Aleister tastes Sebastian's curry and describes how scrumptious it is. He compares it to Ciel Phantomhive, who was disguised as a girl. During the competition he expresses his strong fondness for blue lobster and dons a blue lobster hat. When the audience members are afflicted with curryma, a spice that uses the darkness in a human's heart, he is the only one to find the action exciting and is particularly invigorated by Mina's attack moves.

Revival at Trancy's Tragedy

Aleister knows the late head of the Trancy family, because he is Arnold Trancy's nephew. He finds Alois Trancy as a boy of pure beauty, and believes that Alois had done nothing wrong.[28]

  • (Referring to Agni's curry) "Like the beautiful lady unexpectedly met, with seven precious stones, wrapping their beauty around you. A gold brooch shaped like a dove, a bracelet made of sapphires and pearls, a garnet necklace, a cameo medal, and a diamond and emerald ring on your exquisite fingers, by you, my heart has been stolen from me."[31]
  • (Referring to Sebastian Michaelis' curry) "The young girl at the ball makes me want to love her tenderly. The mischievous mocking bird, singing like a child in the daytime.
