Baldroy (バルドロイ, Barudoroi), often nicknamed "Baldo" or "Bard," is the chef of the Phantomhive household.
Baldroy is an American veteran with dirty blond hair and turquoise eyes. He dresses in a standard chef's outfit, which includes a long white apron. Baldroy almost always has a cigarette dangling from his mouth and goggles hanging loosely around his neck.
Like the other Phantomhive servants, Baldroy has a great deal of respect and a bit of fear for Sebastian Michaelis. He is also exceedingly loyal to Ciel Phantomhive, and he does his best to please both.
Baldroy is always excited about being able to help, and he tries hard to be of use. He cooks with a flamethrower or blowtorch, which usually results in explosions and disasters. Since he was in war before Sebastian found him, he is used to rushing things. Therefore, he implements fast methods to cook food as swiftly as possible. Sebastian states that he is an idiot, whose cooking results are 80 percent charcoal and 20 percent broken dishes. In addition to loving cooking and warfare, he is proud of his ability to repair electronics.
Not much is known about his past besides the time he served in an unknown war. In the anime, this information is expanded to include that he was a sergeant in an army, and he was shown to have exceptional planning, foresight, and fighting skills. After a particularly bad fight, where he was the only survivor, Sebastian approached him and offered him a job at the Phantomhive manor.
As a result of these experiences, even after he was recruited by Sebastian, he tends to keep high-powered weapons on hand and puts things in terms of war, such as when he called mice "the enemy," the manor "the battlefield," and the hunt to catch them "a fight."
Black Butler Arc
They are all outside the mansion after lunch, impressed with Sebastian as he effortlessly defeats a martial arts master. When the three of them are together, he tells them it's their turn to shine. Since a guest is coming, they have a chance to get ahead of Sebastian. Mey-Rin and Finnian agree to his plan.
Unfortunately, things don't go as they planned. Baldroy uses his flame thrower to make the food faster, but he ends up burning it. As they all apologize, Sebastian comes up with a plan that can save them. First, Baldroy helps Finnian to set up the Japanese style garden. Next, Baldroy fixes the meat as per Sebastian's instructions. Once everything is prepared, Sebastian asks them all to remain calm at dinner tonight. He is present watching behind a door when Mey-Rin spills the wine on the tablecloth and watches dumbfounded when Sebastian removes the tablecloth. Along with Finnian, they quickly escort Mey-Rin away.  Later when they are all congratulating Sebastian on how great he is, Baldroy compares him to Superman.  However, Sebastian just replies he's one hell of a butler.
Elizabeth arrives at the mansion and makes everything "cute." Tanaka is turned into "Antoinette." When she does the same to Sebastian, Baldroy, Mey-Rin, and Finnian laugh. However, they are immediately silenced with one look from Sebastian. She wants to hold a dance party with even more extravagant costumes. Ciel agrees and everyone participates.
However, when Lizzy takes his ring, Ciel yells at her to give it back. Everyone is surprised at his tone. Once she breaks the ring, they are even more surprised to see him throw the shards out the window. Ciel announces that ring or no ring he is still the head of the Phantomhive household.  When Sebastian starts to play the violin, Ciel dances with Lizzy. Baldroy, Mey-Rin, and Finnian are surprised that Sebastian can play the violin.  Finnian dances with Tanaka; Mey-Rin only has eyes for Sebastian and wants to dance with him, but Baldroy laughs quietly knowing that won't happen. 
All of them (Baldroy, Finnian, Mey-Rin, and Tanaka) are working together to catch mice in the manor. Finnian throws a statue at the mice. A shocked Baldroy asks if he was trying to kill them instead. Ciel walks through the hall towards his study annoyed by their antics, hoping to find some peace and quiet. Sebastian immediately catches the mice and tells them to stop playing around and get back to work.
After the gunmen's attack, Finnian and Baldroy come running to see what happened. Sebastian hands Baldroy the pie and tells them all to clean up. Before Baldroy can ask if "clean up" also includes the pie, Sebastian disappears.
The three of them are agonizing over whether or not they can eat it. Seeing his grumpy mood, Mey-Rin offers Baldroy some milk, but he says he doesn't want any.  At last, Baldroy decides to eat it. He tells Mey-Rin to get tea, and Finnian to get the silverware. However, Finnian notices that all the silverware is missing (Sebastian has taken it). 
When Ciel returns, they rush out to greet him. They are worried that he's hurt, but Ciel assures them that he isn't. They laugh then, claiming he must be having fun being so high up. (Sebastian is carrying him in his arms).  Later on, they are reading the paper about how the Italian family merchants have been wiped out; they wonder who could have been so powerful to wipe them out. Sebastian immediately orders them to get back to work. 
Red Butler Arc
Several months after the Jack the Ripper incident, Francis Midford and Elizabeth Midford pay a visit to the Phantomhive Manor. When Elizabeth and her mother come to visit, all the servants are excited and end up messing things up as usual. While Francis, Elizabeth, Ciel, and Sebastian go out to the forest, Baldroy, Mey-Rin, and Finnian prepare a surprise birthday party for Ciel, including baking their own cake and using flowers that they took from the garden to decorate the manor. They manage to prepare something for him although Ciel is shocked to see them in such a horrible state. On his 13th birthday, Aunt Francis also asks the servants, no matter how awkward they are, to continue to take care of Ciel and Elizabeth. Within a short time, Finnian tells Ciel it's snowing, completing Ciel's birthday.
Indian Butler Arc
Baldroy, Tanaka, Finnian, and Mey-Rin are brought to the London manor by Ciel and Sebastian. Ciel has to investigate a series of Anglo-Indian attacks, and Sebastian does not trust the three of them not to burn the house down without his supervision.
When Agni and Prince Soma come to stay with Ciel, Baldroy aims to help prepare a meal. However, Sebastian takes over, and he gives the task of preparing dinner to Agni instead, much to Baldroy's dismay. Baldroy sits down on a stool and complains about losing his job. Agni, taking notice of this, finds a task that Baldroy can be useful at, and he allows Baldroy to help prepare dinner. Baldroy is elated by this, particularly when Agni calls him the "chef supervisor."
When Ciel decides that Sebastian will represent his company at the curry competition, Baldroy, Mey-Rin, and Finnian aid Soma in taste-testing curries. They are also seen at the competition, presumably as a treat from Ciel, and praise Sebastian for his win afterward.
The following day, when they learn that Scotland Yard will be paying them a visit, Sebastian orders Baldroy to prepare the evening meal. When it takes too long, he brings out a flamethrower to speed up the process. Agni goes to check on him and tells Baldroy things will taste better if cooked slowly. Cheered up, he assures Agni he can clean things up and try again.
When the first-tier circus members, except for Snake, Joker, and Doll, invade the Phantomhive Manor, Baldroy, Finnian, and Mey-Rin go on the offensive. Baldroy first encounters Beast and Dagger, who instantly attack. Baldroy avoids their attacks, blocking them with a frying pan. He then sends Finnian after them, and he also calls Mey-Rin to inform her of the invaders' whereabouts.
Beast and Dagger try to retreat, but they mistakenly encounter Baldroy in the kitchen instead. Baldroy reveals a hidden machine gun and starts it up. Dagger dives on Beast, using his body as a shield, and dies quickly from Baldroy's attack. When Beast moves in to attack him, Finnian creates a hole in the wall, which Baldroy uses to escape from the kitchen. He then lights a match and points out to Beast that there is a lot of flour in the air in the kitchen because of the use of the machine gun. He discusses a past explosion of a flour mill, which killed 18 people. Thus, when there is a lot of flour in the air, he can use it as his weapon, like makeshift exploding gas. He throws the match into the kitchen, and Beast is killed in the resulting explosion.
Later, when Ciel and Sebastian return to the manor, Mey-Rin, Finnian, and Baldroy are reprimanded for destroying much of the mansion in eliminating the first-tier circus members. They are set to work cleaning up the mess. When Nina Hopkins arrives, Baldroy and Finnian go to greet her, but are blatantly ignored, much to their annoyance.
Phantomhive Manor Murders Arc
When Charles Grey and Charles Phipps arrive at the manor, Grey immediately begins to attack Baldroy and Mey-Rin. They work together to block him, with Baldroy using a kitchen knife to counter Grey's sword. However, Sebastian's aid is eventually required, and he prevents Grey from further attacking Baldroy and Mey-Rin. Later, Grey and Phipps tell Ciel and Sebastian that the fight was done merely to see how good the Phantomhive defenses are.
Ciel, upon their requests, agrees to throw a party, which Baldroy and the other servants help in making preparations for, attending to, and cleaning up.
When Georg von Siemens is found dead, Baldroy points out that they should move the body to the cellar so it does not rot. He and Finnian move his body. When asked for their alibis, all the servants say that they were cleaning together. So Ciel is the only one without an alibi and is taken as a prisoner of some sort. Later that same night, while sleeping after the party, Sebastian wakes Baldroy up. He then gives Baldroy instructions for the next day. The following morning, when Sebastian is found dead, Baldroy stops Ciel from slapping the body repeatedly. Tanaka, whom Ciel appoints as his butler, gives the servants their jobs and sends them on their way. Later, Arthur tries to put the three deaths in order. The servants say that Sebastian talked to them all the night of his murder, and this proves he was the last to be killed.
Ciel is asked to lead a group to see the bodies, but he asks Finnian and Baldroy to guide them in the bottom floor. Baldroy helps search Sebastian's body and briefly comforts Finnian after he yells at Arthur. The group then goes to search Sebastian's bedroom. They then begin discussing Sebastian's past, and Finnian says that none of the servants really know anything about him or Ciel.
The key is still not found after all the luggage is checked, and Lau comments that Sebastian might have thrown it out the window. Finnian and Mey-Rin run outside to look for it, and Baldroy goes after them to try to get them to go back inside. When they begin crying, he reminds them of their job to protect the manor and Ciel. Tanaka then appears with umbrellas for them and tells them that they do not have enough food. They all go to the kitchen and begin planning how to deal with the lack of food. Jeremy Rathbone then shows up, and the servants capture and tie him up. They bring him to Ciel, and Baldroy shows Sebastian's owl when asked to. When Jeremy is freed, he asks that the bodies are placed in separate rooms, which the servants leave to do. They discuss Jeremy on their way to the cellar. Finnian says he thinks they can trust him, but Baldroy and Mey-Rin tell him that he will get hurt if he trusts people too easily.  Baldroy then comes back to tell Ciel that they finished moving the bodies.
Later, the servants are trying to figure out what to serve since they are out of meat. Jeremy comes in, and helps them prepare dinner out of the few ingredients and herbs they have. After the supper, the servants watch as everyone compliments the food.
When everyone is waiting to see who Patrick Phelps' killer was, the servants all stand around Ciel with makeshift weapons to protect him. After Jeremy reveals who the killer is, Finnian brings up Irene Diaz's red vial, which Jeremy explains. His explanation leaves the servants exasperated.
At Sebastian's funeral, Baldroy is one of the ones who caries his coffin. After being buried, Sebastian rings the bell that shows he is still alive, and Baldroy helps dig him up. When he is unearthed, the servants and Elizabeth jump on and hug him. Baldroy then begins crying for the first time since Sebastian "died."
Luxury Liner Arc
Sebastian informs the servants that there will be a new servant. Snake's snakes then enter the room and cause Baldroy to hide behind Finnian. Finnian allows one to crawl around him and calls it "friendly," much to Baldroy's distress. Snake begins naming all of his snakes, while Baldroy hides from them. A little later, he asks Sebastian if they should be hiring "some shady guy," to which Sebastian responds that he is also shady.
Baldroy goes with the other servants to see Ciel, Sebastian, and Snake off as they board the Campania. Sebastian leaves them with the order to do their jobs properly. After Ciel, Sebastian, and Snake leave, an unknown individual (Ronald Knox) flirts casually with Mey-Rin; annoyed, Baldroy wonders who the "playboy" is. 
The main servants participate in Ciel's Easter egg hunt game. Sebastian decides the teams, and Baldroy is paired with Mey-Rin. They easily defeat Nina Hopkins and Edward; Mey-Rin smashes their egg with a sling shot.  Victorious, Baldroy tells them that if they let their guard down, they will lose. Baldroy suddenly remembers some eggs he had placed under a chest. He and Mey-Rin both look for them. Sebastian and Ciel suddenly hear an explosion; Sebastian comes into the hall and sees both of them completely disheveled. Baldroy states that he had forgotten he had planted explosives in the eggs and placed them there. Sebastian can't understand why he would do such a thing. Both Baldroy and Mey-Rin are then disqualified.
Public School Arc
Baldroy is sitting with the servants on the grounds at Ciel's cricket match. Elizabeth is also with them. He comments that this is bad. Finnian questions him about what's wrong; he also adds that the Blue House is "going out so fast." Mey-Rin comments that the Blue House sucks, but Elizabeth insists that they must cheer. Furthermore, since Mey-Rin and Finnian are unaware of the rules, Baldroy explains them in detail. When he's finally finished, Mey-Rin exclaims that the game will last so long. Baldroy reassures them that that's why he's here as chef—the food he has prepared will sustain them through the game. Mey-Rin and Finnian, however, talk to each other quietly. They feel that Baldroy's food may kill Lady Elizabeth.  They wonder what they can do to "save" her. Watching their lively behavior, Sebastian wonders what they are doing.
Later on, everyone enjoys the food immensely; Baldroy is happy they like it, but he comments that it is not the pie he made. Mey-Rin and Finnian can't explain what happened, but they are glad the pie disappeared.
Baldroy stands alongside everyone else when they see how great Ciel looks.  They all laugh good-naturedly when Ciel falls into the water after the boat ride. During the final party, everyone is present and enjoying themselves.
They all welcome Ciel and Sebastian back home after the pair returns from boarding school. Baldroy explains that Old Man Sam's fence broke and all the sheep escaped.  Ciel suddenly laughs and tells Sebastian to handle the situation.
Sebastian in the morning supervises the entire household's chores.  Then Snake, Baldroy, Mey-Rin, and Finnian accompany Ciel and Sebastian to London. Mey-Rin and Finnian marvel at a large clock. Baldroy explains that it's Big Ben. Ciel takes all of them with him as he goes through different stores. He asks Snake and Baldroy if they want anything—this is their chance since he's treating everyone. After both of them exchange glances, Baldroy decides on an adult magazine, but Sebastian immediately refuses, telling Baldroy not to show "such things" to Ciel.  Ciel eventually gets Baldroy some candy cigarettes and tells him that if would be bad if, as their chef, he damaged his taste buds.
Finally, they are at a store where the latest Funtom perfume is being sold. Suddenly, a scream shatters the air, and Sebastian leaves Ciel in Baldroy's care. Later, a crowd of people rushes to buy the perfume, surprising everyone.
Emerald Witch Arc
All five members of the household accompany Ciel and Sebastian to Germany. Standing in the village square, Baldroy complains that his butt hurts since they've been sitting for so long. Shocked, Mey-Rin replies that he's being indecent. Snake hears Finnian speaking German, and he questions him about it. Finnian replies the he can speak a little.  Sebastian instructs them to load the luggage in the second carriage. Then they all proceed into the Werewolves' Forest.
The group suddenly sees a village in the forest, and everyone disembarks from the carriages. Baldroy and Finnian both call out to see if anyone's there. They are all then unexpectedly surrounded by angry villages who are waving their pitchforks at the group. Once the situation is resolved, they head with Sieglinde Sullivan to the Emerald Castle.
When they arrive at the manor, everyone is amazed at its magnificence. Inside, Sullivan tells Wolfram Gelzer to show the servants to their quarters. Later, although they all offer to help, Sebastian tells them to rest after their long journey.
The group is untied after Ciel's attack. Baldroy is on the floor next to a seated Mey-Rin when Ciel wakes up. Baldroy states that he almost lost a few years there, and Tanaka agrees with him. Sebastian reaches his hand out to Ciel when Ciel unexpectedly knocks it away.  Ciel then grabs hold of Finnian, surprising everyone. He says "Ciel doesn't want pain anymore"; this confuses everyone even more. When Sebastian tries again, Tanaka stops him. Ciel suddenly starts screaming about the lights being too dim. Everyone feels that his eyesight may have been affected by the attack as well.
After they've left the room, Mey-Rin starts crying about his condition. Baldroy tells her to stop, saying it's bad luck. Tanaka asks Sebastian what they should do. Sebastian sorrowfully states he does not know since he cannot go near Ciel. Nevertheless, he excuses himself in order to do something. 
In the morning, Sebastian greets all of the servants. He puts Baldroy in charge of lunch. Sebastian continues to take care of Sieglinde. Meanwhile, the servants discuss the situation in the kitchen. Snake and Baldroy comment that Sebastian really doesn't care about Ciel; he should only be thinking of him. Nevertheless, Mey-Rin has faith in Sebastian—she responds that he must have his own plan. Tanaka (in his real form) sips tea and adds that it's a butler's duty to return his master to his perfect condition.
Later on, Sieglinde addresses the rest of the Phantomhive household. She tells them that Ciel's eyes are fine; the condition was mostly psychological. All of them are extremely relieved. Baldroy immediately suggest that they head back to the manor so Ciel can get some real rest. Mey-Rin states she knows he just wants to cook him some meat. Finnian wants to make snacks, and Snake wants to make scones-all for Ciel. Sebastian sighs and asks them not to increase the workload.
Meanwhile, Finnian is taking care of Ciel when a werewolf attacks them.  He protects Ciel, and he kicks the werewolf out of the window. The servants burst in, and Finnian tells them what happened. Baldroy wants to go after him, but Sebastian stops him. Sullivan says something about a ritual and leaves with Wolfram.
A few minutes later, the servants beg Ciel to come out of bed—everything is all right now. However, Ciel screams that he just wants to go home. Sebastian, Snake, Baldroy, Mey-Rin, and Tanaka discuss how they can help Ciel. Sebastian suggests shocking him some more, but Tanaka is against this. Tanaka states it would be best to watch over Ciel until he gets better. Baldroy adds that this is the reason that he doesn't like the occult. Sebastian agrees to not try anything strange-just to sit and wait. 
Later on, Snake rushes to tell Sebastian a "big scoop";  Oscar came back from the underground area. Sebastian asks him what Oscar discovered. Snake tells him along with the rest of the household that there are werewolves in the castle's basement as well as something else. Baldroy questions Snake about what this "something else", but he is unable to explain further. They believe Sullivan is in league with the werewolves; however, Mey-Rin states her concern and worry for Ciel was not false. Snake adds that there is a magical charm on the door that forbids intruders' entry.  Mey-Rin asks Sebastian how he will proceed. He tells them he's going underground to see for himself. If Wolfram returns, he instructs them to distract him until he returns. 
When Wolfram and the other maids return, the servants pretend to be very busy. Snake is preparing the scone dough, and Mey-Rin and Baldroy try to engage Wolfram in conversation, but they can't since they don't speak German. Suddenly, one of Snake's snakes wraps itself around one of the maids and is poised to strike. As she screams, Sebastian effortlessly grabs it and returns it to Snake, surprising the Germans. After the excitement dies down and the main household is once again alone, Snake states that Oscar has another "scoop" to report—the maid smells just like one of the werewolves.
All the servants are reunited when Ciel lets them into his room after he returns to normal. Sebastian opens the door, and all of the servants tumble in.  Sebastian remarks that they're really rude for listening at their master's door. All of them, Sebastian included, then line up by Ciel's bedside. Ciel speaks—because of his carelessness, they all suffered and worried. He asks them to forgive him. Although they are surprised, he adds determinedly that they will never see him in such a sorry state again. He finally asks that they continue to serve him. They all respond with "Yes, My Lord."
After a few minutes of the servants' light banter, Ciel also makes another request—he wants them to forget how he was until now. Mey-Rin deduces that Ciel also recalls his off-the-charts behavior. Ciel adds that he didn't want to behave like that. Baldroy concludes that Ciel reacted the same way as soldiers. On the battlefield, when they are wounded for the first time, they panic. Sebastian wonders if the attack's aim was purely psychological. When Ciel asks him to explain, Sebastian relates the news about the Queen's letter. He also had the components of the antidote analyzed. When Ciel reads the Queen's letter, everything starts to fall into place. However, he's incredibly annoyed with the Queen's final request—she wants the "little green witch to come to tea".
Ciel knows this request won't be easy to accomplish. Sebastian adds that even the Queen's selfishness is incomparable to Ciel's.  Finally, Ciel tells the entire household to make preparations to leave—further instructions will come later.
The entire Phantomhive household is hiding and waiting in the forest. Mey-Rin whispers that it's starting to get noisy. A flare suddenly lights up the night sky. Baldroy yells it's about time.  He adds their boss is calling them, and they all head out.
In the forest, the household is trying to find Ciel. Snake states Goethe smells Smile over there. Mey-Rin takes off her glasses, confirming that it is Ciel. When they reach him, he states their retreat plan starts now. They'll split into two groups and escape. Snake tells Baldroy he can feel them coming. Baldroy asks how he can tell—Snake responds through Wordsworth that his snakes can feel vibrations with their skin. 
As they start running, Snake releases his snake onto their pursuers. Baldroy states that he had a bad experience with Snakes in Arizona; they won't be able to escape. As they verbally counter in German, he fires bullets back at them, yelling he can't understand what they're saying. Baldroy tells Snake to go on ahead, and don't drop the "Lady." Baldroy then states it's time to use the "marmalade." With his explosives, he manages to hold off most of the enemy. However, Wolfram suddenly appears. He fights Baldroy like a wild animal. Wolfram gets past Baldroy, and he heads toward Snake. Baldroy warns Snake that he's gaining on him, but Snake is unable to save himself. When he falls down, Wolfram grabs the "lady." However, this is actually Ciel in disguise. He thanks Wolfram for coming and shoots him.
Within seconds, Ciel realizes that Wolfram unbelievably dodged his bullet.  Wolfram then mercilessly hits Ciel. Snake and Baldroy are unable to come to his aid. When Wolfram is about to deliver the final blow, Diedrich saves Ciel.  Although Ciel is surprised to see him, Diedrich quickly defeats Wolfram. He tells the three of them to hurry up and run—this forest has more dangers than these "villagers." Since the German army is here, they are not safe at all. Unexpectedly, a Panzer (the latest model of an armored land vehicle) appears, shocking Ciel, Baldroy, and Snake. As they start running, Ciel exclaims that he can't believe the Germans have such advanced weaponry. Baldroy tries shooting it, but he can't put a scratch on it. Diedrich tells them if they can get to a train they can escape.
Suddenly, Ciel falls, still weak from his injuries.  At the same time, the Panzer's cannon fires. Diedrich, Baldroy, and Snake look on in horror as they are unable to rescue Ciel. Luckily, Sebastian arrives just in time to save him. Ciel immediately scolds him for being late. Sebastian apologizes and states that he has all the gas' samples. Ciel tells Baldroy and Snake to help the others get to the train; he also hands the case to Snake. Finally, he states he and Sebastian will take care of the Panzer.
In an underground passageway, Baldroy, Snake, and Diedrich arrive at a door; Snake tells them to wait—six to seven people are on the other side. Baldroy hands the case to Snake and enters the room with Diedrich. After they shoot everyone, Baldroy comes to get a relieved Snake.
Diedrich orders Baldroy and Snake to put coal in the furnace. Finnian, carrying Sullivan and "small" Tanaka, also arrives alongside Mey-Rin. Snake receives Keats, who showed the group the way. Baldroy tells Snake and Mey-Rin to check the oil; he also tells Finnian to open the gate. 
Once the train starts, Baldroy tells Finnian to get on. Suddenly, Wolfram arrives. The group panics when they think that he's going to attack them. However, he shoots a soldier who was going to attack Sullivan. At the same time, Wolfram is shot by the female German officer, who yells that he betrayed them. She next aims for the group. Before she can kill them, Sebastian and Ciel arrive just in time to save them. Plunging his knife into her throat, Sebastian states some food escaped from the oven. 
The entire group then arrives at Diedrich's castle. Baldroy, Finnian, and Mey-Rin comment on how big the house is. However, Heinrich says this castle, Weizsäcker, is small compared to the other castles. Ciel looks at Diedrich and comments that he's a rich boy. The wounded are all treated; Mey-Rin and Tanaka offer to help since they are not injured.
Wolfram and Sieglinde are disguised on their journey to England.  Before Ciel leaves, Diedrich tells him to be careful. When the group arrives in London, Sebastian asks Wolfram to refrain from speaking in German because it will draw unwanted attention. The servants leave Sebastian, Ciel, Wolfram, and Sullivan and proceed to the mansion. When the group returns, the servants all greet them. The entire day passes in light fun along with Agni, Soma, and Elizabeth.
Blue Cult Arc
At Phantomhive Manor, Sebastian Michaelis gathers Baldroy, Mey-Rin, Finnian, Snake, and Tanaka, and gives each of them instructions, save Tanaka, who is told to remain as is, for the upcoming Halloween celebration. Baldroy, Mey-Rin, and Tanaka share details on the American, Chinese, and Japanese Halloween traditions, respectively, which inspires Sebastian.
On Halloween, Baldroy and the other servants, dressed in costumes, greet Ciel Phantomhive, when the latter arrives. Baldroy, then, mingles with the tenants of Phantomhive land, whom the celebration, which features a combination of various Halloweens from around the world, is primarily dedicated to. Later, Baldroy and the others set lanterns afloat into a river to end the night.
At Phantomhive Manor, Baldroy, Mey-Rin, and Snake greet who they recognize as Ciel, while Finnian has reservations.
Sometime later, Ciel and Sebastian enter the manor, where the servants greet Ciel. Ciel is confused when Baldroy asks him why he went out "again" in the rain.
At that moment, "Ciel" 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 head of the Phantomhive house, Ciel Phantomhive, is actually he.
To Baldroy's and the other servants' disbelief, Sebastian confirms that "Ciel" is the real Ciel Phantomhive. Tanaka soon confirms the same thing, and tells them that, fifteen years ago, Rachel Phantomhive gave birth to twins. Pressured by "Ciel" to explain why he deceived them, Ciel calls himself "Ciel's" spare.

- "The kitchen is the chef's sanctuary and his alone... the butler himself isn't allowed to stick his nose in."
- (To Beast) "I woulda rather met a babe like you in a pub, drinkin' warmed-over beer of something."
- (To Finnian and Mey-Rin, referring to Sebastian Michaelis) "What's our job? To protect this house! To protect the Young Master, right? Remember the time when we just got here? Back then we couldn't do anything but kill. And yet, Mey-Rin can do the washing without tearing anything apart now. Finny can see the difference between a herb and a weed. And I, who couldn't cook a thing, can now make fried eggs at least. That superman who can do anything by himself. Why did he teach us all those things with such a strong determination, even though we couldn't do anything and were such poor learners? It was so that, when the worst came to the worst and he wasn't around anymore, the mansion would still have protection, right? That's why there's only one thing we should be doing right now, right?"
