Earl Alois Trancy (アロイス・トランシー, Aroisu Toranshi), a character introduced in the anime-exclusive Kuroshitsuji II, is the head of the Trancy household. Later, it is stated that his real name is Jim Macken.
Alois is a teenager with icy blue eyes and platinum blond hair that has one noticeable cowlick that curls up on the right side. He wears a long plum purple frock coat, a forest green vest with black stripes and a black back, a white button-up shirt, black shorts, long black stockings, brown high heel boots with purple laces, and a charcoal ribbon tied around his neck.
Alois' Faustian contract seal with Claude Faustus - an encircled, gold and red pentagram-like shape - is on his tongue. His contract seal is not visible at all times, and is mainly only shown if Claude is nearby.
Alois seems to have an overall cheerful disposition in spite of all his hardships and misgivings. His emotions are quite unpredictable, however, and fluctuate from enthusiastic to angry. He also loses interest in things fairly quickly. Alois often uses harsh and impolite language, such as "bloody" or other swear words, regardless of whom he is speaking to.
One of his few consistent traits is his attachment to his butler, Claude Faustus, whose attention he constantly tries to attract. His horrific childhood, which contained no parental figures, is the likely cause of his extreme need for affection and acknowledgment. Although his harsh temper was evident even in childhood, his sadistic streak, bizarre promiscuity, and crude language stem from the sexual abuse he received shortly before contracting with Claude.
Alois enjoys the authority of a noble he obtained, and utilizes his power rather sadistically. In order to feel dominant, he abuses others and makes them feel uncomfortable and inferior for the sake of own satisfaction. However, Alois particularly directs this cruelty to Hannah Anafeloz. He often lashes out physically, and demeans her with vile remarks when he believes that she is trying to take someone else's attention away from him.
Despite how he mistreated her, Hannah later admits that she has loved Alois the whole time, and his attitude towards her changes completely. He accepts her loving him since he can no longer gain any of the acknowledgment he sought from Claude.
During his time spent abducted, Alois claimed that he was kept as a slave in an unknown village. An event, which occurred within the said village, left all the villagers dead, leaving Alois as the only survivor. Alois then returned with Claude Faustus and soon became the head of the Trancy household, after his father died under mysterious circumstances.
However, later, Alois experienced a flashback about his actual past as Jim Macken, an orphan from the village. He and his little brother, Luka, had been treated unkindly by the villagers ever since their parents died, which forced them to survive as thieves and pickpockets. Jim expressed a bitter hatred of the villagers, and declared that everyone who was cruel to them ought to die.
When a mysterious calamity swept the village, killing nearly everyone including Luka, Jim was taken in, along with a group of other boys, by the head of the Trancy estate who kept them for the purpose of pedophilia. While in captivity, Jim heard rumors about a fairy that grants wishes, and after following the instructions he was given, he summoned the spider demon, Claude. In spite of that, he realized he had no wish to fulfill, and Claude told Jim to call for him again when he finds a wish.
Although Earl Trancy originally despised him because of his "filthy" eyes, Jim set about seducing him. Soon, he became his favorite bed-mate, and subsequently his heir. Jim, parading from then on as Alois Trancy, received favorable treatment, such as fashionable clothes and more freedom in the mansion.
Not knowing that it was actually Hannah, Alois discovered that the person who was allegedly responsible for the strange deaths in the village was another demon, Sebastian Michaelis, during his Faustian contract before Ciel Phantomhive. Alois then formed a contract with Claude, vowing revenge on Sebastian. When Earl Trancy died, Alois became the new earl and released all the captive boys.
Note: Events occurring in this season only pertain to the anime and do not constitute canon material.
Revival at Trancy's Tragedy
Alois makes a Faustian contract with Claude Faustus; the contract seal resides on Alois's tongue. At breakfast, he complains that a sunny-side-up egg seems pitiable, and spills wine on purpose to attract his maid Hannah Anafeloz's attention. Pretending that he is hurt, he screams so that she may gaze at him. He then tells Hannah that it is not appropriate for a maid to look at her lord directly, and sticks his fingers into Hannah's eye socket as punishment.
Subsequently, his uncle, the priest and Aleister Chamber, arrive, and Alois greets Arnold joyfully. At dinner, he relays to the story of when he was kidnapped as a child. When Arnold is about to go home, Alois scatters banknotes and land agreements onto the ground from the balcony, mocking his greed. Later, a traveler, that is Sebastian Michaelis, arrives. Alois greets him seductively and tells Claude to allow the strange man to stay with them. Alois makes several attempts to find out what Sebastian is hiding in his suitcase, and Sebastian promises him to once Alois leads the way to where the soul of Ciel Phantomhive is kept. Soon, Alois discovers that Sebastian has been hiding Ciel Phantomhive in his suitcase. Wanting Ciel, he orders Claude to take him, but neither he nor Claude is able to catch up to Sebastian when he flees with Ciel.
Trancy and Phantomhive
Later, Alois gets bored in picking a costume for his costume ball and tells Hannah to strip so that he can wear her dress. He tries to put a dress on Claude, but his butler refuses. At the party, he disguises himself as a maid with long blond hair and tries to seduce Ciel. He takes Ciel's eyepatch and runs away. Despite his disguise, Ciel acknowledges his identity.
Afterwards, Alois holds a costume ball to persuade Ciel, Sebastian, and the Phantomhive household to come to the Trancy manor. He lets his butler talk with Sebastian but tells him to settle the matter in ten minutes. However, Claude later returns with Sebastian alive and Alois opts to punish Claude but the latter refuses. Soon after, Alois angers Ciel by dancing with Elizabeth Midford. He vows to "have" Ciel while Ciel vows to kill him.
Consequently, he duels with Ciel. He corners Ciel at first, but as the butlers arrive, he gets stabbed in his stomach and bleeds profusely. Alois is mocked by Ciel, who believes that Alois killed Ciel's parents. Alois tries to explain, telling Ciel that they are both the same as they are being deceived by a demon. He begs and cries as he holds onto Ciel's leg. Ciel is about to strike him dead when Claude finally stops him. In separating them, Claude inadvertently tastes Ciel's blood and nearly swoons in ecstasy; he does not help the wounded Alois, who vomits a gush of blood before passing out.
Alois's past as "Jim Macken" is revealed; he was a slave to the head of the Trancy. He overhears his friends talking about summoning a fairy. He meets Claude and keeps in touch with him. When he enters a room as a slave to the former Trancy Head, he makes a wish, and Claude offers to form a contract. Back in the present, he is saved from Grell by Hannah, and crawls to a tree. Moments before he is killed, Alois reveals that Claude was the most important person to him in the world and clings to him in desperation but his soul is stolen from his body by Claude and stored within the Trancy ring. Hannah is seen sticking her fingers to Alois's left eye after his body has been left beneath the tree by Claude, murmuring to his corpse about his "wish".
The ring Alois wore in life which also contains his soul is now being worn on Ciel's finger and his memories have been mixed in with Ciel's. He soon takes control of Ciel's body and climbs to a clock tower in front of the mansion. Alois then creates a maze in which Sebastian and Claude must solve to get to Ciel's body. Claude takes a head start because of his knowledge of Alois. Ciel's soul briefly breaks through and orders Sebastian to remain his butler until he has consumed his soul entirely, but Alois once again takes control of Ciel's body. Alois states how much he was attached to Claude and allows Claude to get every answer right in the maze of his heart. Upon learning that Claude murdered him in order to get to Ciel, Alois has an emotional breakdown. Hannah reveals of how Luka, his brother, had contracted to her in order to destroy the village he and Alois grew up in for Alois's sake.
Alois makes a new contract with Hannah after he realizes that both she and Luka have always loved him. In return he states that they are the people he should be loving and adds that everyone who never truly loved him should be annihilated. Before fainting he tells Claude that he wanted his love as at that time his heart was trapped in a cobweb.
After Alois is brought to a demon sanctuary with Hannah, Claude and Sebastian, Alois talks to Ciel in his subconscious thoughts as they wait for their butlers to finish dueling. It is later revealed that his wish he made with Hannah was for Ciel's soul to never get eaten, and for Alois to join Luka in Hannah's body. When Claude loses the duel and dies, Alois is shocked and sad and subsequently disappears from Ciel's body. Hannah claims that she, Alois, Luka and Claude will be eternally happy in Nirvana as they are seen falling into a whirlpool.
- (Referring to Claude Faustus) "Darkness. Darkness. Darkness envelopes me. But it's only you... I desire... I desire you!"
- (To Hannah Anafeloz) "Hannah, don't you think eggs are pitiable? Its shell is broken and it's forced to publicly show an indecorous appearance. Then it becomes an eyeball, internal organs, or a plume. And I rob it of any and all possibilities."
- "Then show me those eyes. Not the eyes of those villagers who looked as if they'd seen a pile of shit. Not the old man's greedy, inflamed eyes. That day, those eyes. Those eyes that longed only for me, Claude."
- "Claude, my heart was forever trapped in your deceptive spider web. You'll always be my Highness."
- (To Ciel Phantomhive) "Oh, so you didn't want me to come piss with you?"
- "He... smiled! Claude did. How... disgusting."
- According to Claude during the contest in the maze, Alois' favorite food is oily fish and chips. This may or may not be true, however, as Alois had rigged the questions and answers to help Claude win.
- Despite his hatred of them, every single one of his servants is a demon. He also looks at Claude (a demon) as a role model.
- A running gag in the anime is Alois trying to get Claude to dance with or pay attention to him by saying "Olé", only to end up with Claude mutely staring at or ignoring him.
- It is hinted that he can speak Latin.
- His Faustian contract is known to only appear when Claude is close to him.
- Alois is easily frightened of childish things such as the dark and being alone.
