Lady Elizabeth Ethel Cordelia Midford (エリザベス・ミッドフォード, Erizabesu Middofōdo) is the daughter of Alexis Leon and Francis Midford, younger sister of Edward Midford, niece of Vincent Phantomhive and Rachel Phantomhive, and fiancée of Ciel Phantomhive.

Appearance

Elizabeth is a young teenage girl with emerald green eyes. She has waist-long, golden-blonde hair worn in two big drills, save for a slightly curled cowlick.

Elizabeth often wears elegant gowns and a variety of headbands decorated with flowers or ribbons. Her accessories include gold earrings and low-heeled shoes.

Personality

Kuro27

Elizabeth cries when Ciel did not wear the ring that she bought for him.

Elizabeth is a strong-willed and cheerful individual with a fondness for anything cute. Divinator Blavat Sky described her as someone who moves "to their own rhythm."[4] She is "stubbornly fixed"[4] on her hobbies.[5] She is also fastidious about her clothes and shoes,[6] and tends to impose her sense of fashion and preferences upon others, while doggedly refusing to take no for an answer; for instance, she insisted that Ciel Phantomhive refer to her by her nickname, "Lizzie" (リジー, Rijī).[7] When disagreed with, Elizabeth is prone to temper tantrums and bouts of self-centeredness. However, on the occasions that she upsets someone, she feels horrible and may even cry over her mistake.[8]

In front of others, Elizabeth persistently maintains an innocent demeanor; this is because her aunt, Angelina Dalles had instilled into her the notion that all ladies should act weak and endearing in front of their lords, smile often, and be surrounded by nice things.[9] However, beneath this facade of ladylike mannerisms, Elizabeth is a talented swordswoman, as demonstrated when she effortlessly killed several Bizarre Dolls in order to protect Ciel.[10] She has a reputation for being a natural sword fighter;[11] her brother once admitted that her sword-wielding skills are superior to his.[12]

Moreover, Ciel is very important to Elizabeth, to the degree that Blavat labelled her feelings an "obsession";[13] she goes through great lengths just to make him smile, although she acknowledges that she does overdo it occasionally.[14] Elizabeth is frequently consumed with worry for him,[15] and thus earnestly desires to protect him at all costs.[16][17]

Elizabeth's favorite foods are shortcake, strawberries, and cherries.[18] She also likes strawberry and orange aromatized tea, or Shalimar tea. Her favorite flowers are pink marguerites, and she loves animals, especially rabbits, kittens, and squirrels.[18][19] Additionally, she is afraid of ghosts.[19]

History

Elizabeth child

Ciel and Elizabeth when they were children.

Since they are cousins, Elizabeth knew Ciel Phantomhive before the deaths of Vincent and Rachel Phantomhive. When they were young, she, Ciel, and their aunt Angelina Dalles regularly played together at the Phantomhive Manor; she described the place as being once filled with laughter at that time.[20]

On one occasion, Ciel was fencing with her mother. He said that he was scared of strong wives, so he was glad that Elizabeth was the one who will marry him. Because she wished to become a wife that he could protect, she wanted to quit training, but her mother would not allow her to.[21] On Ciel's tenth birthday, Paula reported about the brutal murders of the Phantomhives. She wept at their graves, while overhearing the ladies, indifferent to their deaths, gossip about trivial things. One month passed, and Ciel suddenly returned with Sebastian Michaelis. She was relieved to see him, but then she realized that she had overgrown Ciel. From that point onward, Elizabeth sought to be a wife capable of protecting him.[22]

When Elizabeth won her fencing match and received new shoes as a reward, Paula commented that she had grown even taller. Dismayed, Elizabeth asked for a pair of low-heel shoes instead so that she can "smile and walk beside" Ciel, who was trying hard to be seen as an adult.[23]

Plot

Black Butler Arc

Ciel's Reaction to Elizabeth's Redecoration

Ciel's reaction to Elizabeth's redecoration of the Phantomhive Manor.

One morning, Elizabeth arrives at the manor and decorates it and the staff with ribbons and other girly accessories, much to their obvious dismay. She states that she is preparing the appropriate setting for a dance party, and she asks Ciel to wear the clothes she has personally picked out for him.[24]

Later, Ciel emerges in the ballroom, dressed in the outfit she selected, and she is elated. However, she notices his Phantomhive blue ring, and she is greatly dissatisfied that he is not wearing the one she has chosen for him. Without his consent, she snatches the ring from Ciel's thumb, and disparages its worn condition and unfit size. Ciel heatedly demands for it back, causing her to burst into tears for being yelled at. Out of frustration, she throws the ring, and it shatters to pieces at the impact. Infuriated, Ciel raises his hand to slap her, but Sebastian stops him in the process by compelling him to grip onto his cane. Sebastian explains to Elizabeth that the ring was a very important, one-of-a-kind, family ornament, and she is appalled when she learns of its significance.[25] After calming down, Ciel tosses the remnants of the said ring out the window, and he declares that he remains the head of the Phantomhive household, with or without the ring. Subsequently, he dries her tears, and dances with her, and she muses how the experience is like a dream. Later that night, Elizabeth is soundly asleep and would be picked up the next day by her grandmother.[26]

Red Butler Arc

Elizabeth Jack

Elizabeth almost spots Ciel and Sebastian leaving the party.

Elizabeth shows up to one of Aleistor Chamber's parties, where she compliments the outfits of other ladies. She then spots a particular girl whose dress she deems cute. She searches for the "girl" to admire "her" attire, but she loses sight of "her".[27] Later, Elizabeth finds the girl again and attempts to speak to "her", but a gentleman leads the "girl" away and directs a waiter to serve Elizabeth a glass of lemonade.[28] Later, she maneuvers over to the "girl" in another attempt to speak to her, but gets distracted by a bizarre magic act.[29]

While outside on a balcony, Elizabeth detects movement and is unsure if there was someone on the rooftop.[30]

Some time later, Elizabeth attends Angelina Dalles's funeral. She stands before her casket while mourning her death. Her attention is then drawn to a latecomer at the door- Ciel Phantomhive, who is carrying a red dress.[31] He places the dress on Angelina's corpse, and Elizabeth observes as rose petals, from a carriage maintained by Sebastian Michaelis, drift into the church.[32]

Several months after the Jack the Ripper incident, Elizabeth and her mother, Francis Midford, arrive at the Phantomhive Manor. When she vigorously hugs Ciel, Francis scolds her for being unladylike.[33] Sebastian guides them through the manor;[34] once they reach the horse stables, Francis and Ciel engage in a hunting competition.[35] Elizabeth tries to accompany Ciel on his horse, but he does not allow her to, stating that it would be too dangerous for her, and he then asserts that he will win the competition.[36] Afterward, she tells Sebastian that she is relieved Ciel has returned to his normal self; she was worried for his condition, because he was so close to Angelina. She says that she does not want unhappy memories to befall Ciel, and, for that reason, she strives to cheer him up with her own methods, but they are, for the most part, ineffective. Sebastian assures her that Ciel appreciates her, and she thanks him.[37]

After the hunting game, Elizabeth, Ciel, and Francis have lunch. Suddenly, a bear appears, and it intends to attack Elizabeth, which prompts Ciel to shield her with his body. The bear is seemingly taken out by Francis, who commends Ciel for his courage.[38]

Subsequently, they return to the manor, where Elizabeth, Francis, and the Phantomhive servants celebrate Ciel's thirteenth birthday. Francis tells the Phantomhive household to take care of Elizabeth and Ciel in the future, much to Elizabeth's delight.[39] Afterward, she, Ciel, Francis, Finnian, and Tanaka observe the snow.[40]

Circus Arc

Elizabeth 1

Tanaka tells Elizabeth that nothing is wrong at the manor.

Elizabeth goes to the Phantomhive Manor, while Ciel and Sebastian are at Baron Kelvin's estate to investigate the Noah's Ark Circus kidnappings, and she refuses to leave until she sees Ciel.[41] That night, Dagger, Beast, Jumbo, Wendy, and Peter arrive at the manor to capture Ciel and kill any witnesses. She sleeps through most of this, but she is awoken by a loud noise (Mey-Rin shooting Peter through a window). When she gets up to investigate, Tanaka tells her it was a sound in her dreams and convinces her to go back to bed, lest she catches a chill.[42]

Later, Ciel and Sebastian return to the manor, and Elizabeth declares that she would like them to have new clothes so they can go on a boat ride. As a result, Sebastian calls the tailor, Nina Hopkins.[43] Elizabeth observes while Nina takes measurements of Ciel and comments that her designs are cute. However, when Sebastian insults one of Nina's designs, she kicks Elizabeth, Ciel, and Sebastian out of the room.[44]

Subsequently, Ciel is called back in for another fitting, and Elizabeth watches. Nina decides that the shirt he is wearing does not have the right silhouette and rips it off him. Ciel and Sebastian then endeavor to cover the mark, in order to prevent Elizabeth from seeing it.[45]

Afterward, Soma Asman Kadar, Agni, and Elizabeth introduce themselves to each other, and Soma decides to consider Elizabeth his new little sister. They go to the dining hall, and Soma reveals that Ciel has recently been very sick. She remarks sadly that Ciel never tells her anything, but Sebastian points out that by spending the day with her, Ciel is more relaxed then he had been in a while. She says that it would be nice if that was true.[46]

Phantomhive Manor Murders Arc

KS jump

Elizabeth and the Phantomhive household servants jump onto Sebastian after learning that he is alive.

Elizabeth attends Sebastian's funeral, where she, along with Soma, tries to comfort and console Ciel; she says that Sebastian is a liar, for he promised that he would never leave Ciel by himself. After Sebastian reveals he is still alive, she jumps on him and hugs him with the Phantomhive household servants.[47] Subsequently, Sebastian tells Elizabeth that he would like to rectify what she has previously said--he asserts that he does not tell lies.[48]

Luxury Liner Arc

Alexis Leon Midford, Francis Midford, Edward Midford, and Elizabeth plan to travel to New York on the luxury passenger ship Campania for three weeks from April 17, 1889. Alexis has Elizabeth invite Ciel Phantomhive on their family trip. Thus, Elizabeth heads to the Phantomhive Manor and relays the offer to Ciel. He declines it, stating that he is busy, but after noticing her disappointment, adds that he can make time if they go somewhere close. Happy, Elizabeth hugs him, saying that anywhere is fine as long as they are together, and then leaves, promising to bring him back a lot of souvenirs.[49]

On April 17, Elizabeth, Alexis, Francis, and Edward board the first-class passenger deck of the Campania, where they encounter Ciel and his servants, Sebastian Michaelis and Snake. Ciel claims that he wanted to surprise Elizabeth, who tears up and passionately hugs him. Francis scolds her for displaying indecent behavior, and Edward agrees with his mother. Afterward, Elizabeth, her family, and Ciel eat together on the ship. Although Edward is supposed to be her escort to a dinner party, Elizabeth asks Ciel to be her escort, and the latter accepts the request.[50]

Three days later, at the dinner party, Elizabeth leaves Ciel to get him some cake.[51] When she returns, she discovers that Ciel has disappeared and looks for him. Eventually, she catches sight of him going somewhere, which prompts her to follow. She reunites with him on a staircase, where she tries to give him the cake, but he silences her, saying that it is dangerous where they are and that she should go back to Francis. Not wanting to be left alone, Elizabeth pursues him to the bottom freight storage. She overhears Snake telling Ciel about how good the food is, and asserts that the cake is better than the food. Ciel, then, learns, to his dismay, that she has followed him. She states that she wants him to eat the cake, since it is the kind that Ciel likes and she has gotten the biggest piece. She shows him the plate, only to realize that it is empty. A Bizarre Doll, who is behind her, has eaten the cake, and is about to bite her, but Ciel saves her in time. Subsequently, a great number of Bizarre Dolls begin to emerge from their coffins.[52]

Soon after, the Bizarre Dolls break out of their coffins,[53] and Elizabeth, Ciel, and Snake run, but the exit is blocked. Ciel orders Snake to assist Elizabeth as she climbs to the top of a luggage. After a struggle with the Bizarre Dolls, all three are on top of the luggage. Ciel and Snake, then, discuss the Bizarre Dolls, the details of which frightening Elizabeth, and attempt to distract them, but to no avail.[54]

Elizabeth, Ciel, and Snake are jolted, when the Bizarre Dolls claw at the luggage with their teeth and nails. Ciel vows to protect Elizabeth. Then, Sebastian arrives and attacks them, while Ciel shields Elizabeth. Once the Bizarre Dolls are all eliminated, Snake, Ciel, and Elizabeth, who is aided by Sebastian, descend from the luggage. Sebastian uncovers where Rian Stoker is hiding; pressured, Rian reveals to them that there are two freight storages on the ship, and the front freight storage has ten times as many Bizarre Dolls as there were where they are.[55]

Ciel sends Sebastian to look after the rest of the Midford family. After Sebastian leaves, Ciel forces Rian to start leading them to his room, where there is a device that, according to Rian, can render the Bizarre Dolls inactive again. An employee stops them in the turbine engine room, and Elizabeth, Ciel, Snake, and Rian perform the phoenix pose in order for him to allow them access to the elevator.[56]

While they are in the second boiler room, the Campania crashes into an iceberg, water surges in and the watertight doors begin to close. Snake and Rian manage to pass through the door in time, but Ciel goes back to rescue Elizabeth, to her shock. Ciel grabs her hand, reminding her that he has made a promise to protect her at all costs, and tells a reluctant Snake to proceed without him and that he and Elizabeth will escape via the duct. Snake has his snake Keats guide them through the duct. Ciel starts to climb a wall, instructing Elizabeth to take off her dress, which is impeding her movement. She refuses to, saying that she wants Ciel to think of her as cute until the very end. Ciel, then, tears off her dress, stating that if she dies, everything will be over and she will never be able to wear the dresses she loves again. She apologizes, and he gives her his coat, saying that he will ask Nina Hopkins to make her a new dress next time. They both apologize to each other. Then, Ciel coughs, which worries her; he claims that he choked on some water and urges her to climb.[57]

Elizabeth and Ciel reach the second-class restaurant, where Sebastian helps them down from the duct. Sebastian informs them that Elizabeth's family is rescuing the other passengers, and Elizabeth thanks him, saying that it is just like her mother to do so and that they will be fine, as long as they are together. They are about to go on, but then Grell Sutcliff and Ronald Knox arrive. While Grell raves about Sebastian, Sebastian, Elizabeth, and Ciel attempt to run, but Grell stops them, attacking Sebastian, who protects Elizabeth and Ciel. Elizabeth asks Sebastian who Grell is, and the latter tells her to stay away from Grell. During the fight, Grell accidentally slashes a window with their Death Scythe, causing water to rapidly enter the ship.[58]

The torrent of water separates Elizabeth and Ciel. A horde of Bizarre Dolls approach Elizabeth; Ciel's leg is wounded, and so he cannot go to her, and his gun has run out of bullets, while Sebastian is busy dealing with Ronald, who has taken Grell's place. Crying, Elizabeth tells Ciel that she wanted him to think of her as cute until the very end. Subsequently, from a decoration on the wall, she grabs two swords and begins killing the Bizarre Dolls, to Ciel's and Sebastian's shock. She kills the Bizarre Dolls behind Ciel, as well, confessing to him that she did not want him to see her in such an "uncute" state, but adds that, this time, she will protect him. She, then, declares that she is the daughter of the head of the British knights, Alexis Leon Midford, and the wife of the Queen's Watchdog. [59]

Lizzy

Elizabeth fighting the bizarre dolls.

While fighting the Bizarre Dolls, Elizabeth remembers her past, as well as the lessons Angelina Dalles taught her.[60] Once she is done killing all the Bizarre Dolls in their vicinity, she tries to attack Grell, but Sebastian stops her, apologizes, and says that he will take over from there. Soon after, Grell and Ronald leave, in search for Rian. Elizabeth, then, learns that Ciel has hurt his leg and cannot walk. She offers to carry him on her back, but immediately becomes embarrassed. She, then, bursts into tears, to Ciel's and Sebastian's astonishment; she admits that she is afraid that Ciel would no longer want her as a wife because she is "scary," and Ciel assures that that is not the case. Subsequently, Snake reunites with them, and they decide to meet up with Elizabeth's family.[61]

They head to the first-class deck, where Edward is. Elizabeth runs to him, and they happily embrace. After noticing that Elizabeth is carrying a sword, he realizes that she must have fought and comments that the situation must have been hard for her. When Edward encourages them to get into the lifeboats, Ciel asks Edward to allow Snake to take his place on the lifeboat, for he has some business to finish on the ship, to Elizabeth's and Snake's shock. Edward gives his consent, and Elizabeth asserts that she will stay with Ciel, which leads Sebastian to strike the back of her neck in order to render her unconscious.[62]

The Midfords are in lifeboats,[63] with Elizabeth, Edward, and Snake sharing one, by the time the ship heavily tilts[64] and breaks in two.[65] A rescue ships comes at dawn, and the Midfords return to London.[66]

On Easter Day, Elizabeth and Edward head over to the Phantomhive Manor, in order to celebrate the holiday with Ciel, Sebastian, Soma Asman Kadar, Agni, Baldroy, Finnian, Snake, Tanaka, and Mey-Rin, and Nina Hopkins; Elizabeth has all of them wear bunny ears.[67]

Elizabeth plans to have an Easter Egg Hunt. She presents the Easter eggs her father designed and the one she made, and asks Ciel if he deems a certain flower pattern on the aforementioned egg nostalgic. He agrees, to her confusion. She, then, selects one egg in particular, saying that the person who finds that egg, among all the others in the manor, will be the winner of the Egg Hunt. Charles Grey and Charles Phipps barge in, and Elizabeth is impressed with the eggs the latter has painted. Subsequently, they announce their intent to take part in the competition. Sebastian establishes the rules of the game and has the participants divide into teams of two. Elizabeth, then, signals the start of the game.[68]

Ultimately, Ciel and Sebastian retrieve her egg, which she has placed on one of the candle holders of a chandelier.[69] They go to the feast held outdoors, where Elizabeth and the other participants are waiting, and Ciel gives her the egg back. Elated, Elizabeth congratulates him and wishes that the egg will bring him happiness. When he walks away, she pensively removes her bunny ears, thinking about how they have celebrated Easter together many times, but it is the first time she has ever made her own egg—and, thus, it was strange for him to state that he finds the egg she made nostalgic. She wonders what happened to him in the one month he was gone.[70]

Public School Arc

Elizabeth attends Weston College's opening ceremony for the 1889's Inter-Dormitory Cricket Tournament. When the party commences, Lawrence Bluewer's sisters swamp Ciel. Nevertheless, Elizabeth quickly silences them all with her presence, announcing that she is Ciel's fiancée. At the same time, Edward starts shaking Ciel—he has his sister, but he still gets all the girls. Elizabeth immediately punches her brother, telling him to stop hurting Ciel.

While Ciel talks with Soma Asman Kadar and Edgar Redmond, Elizabeth holds on to a knocked out Edward, realizing she may have over done it. Furthermore, although Sebastian does his best to remain unnoticed, Francis Midford recognizes him. Elizabeth also notices who he is, and she quickly informs her father and brother of his true identity. Frances Midford realizes that they are both here on the Queen's business. Edward comments that he did not recognize Sebastian at all, stunning Ciel. Edward adds that when Elizabeth is around he does not see anyone else. Sebastian asks them all to keep his and Ciel's secret. Elizabeth hugs Ciel, energetically telling him she will be cheering for him a lot. Piqued after seeing Elizabeth favoring Ciel, Edward responds that the "eternal losers of the Blue House" could never win.[71] Elizabeth's father then announces that he hopes to see another "Miracle of the Sapphires." After he narrates the entire story, Ciel cannot believe that his predecessor was in Blue House. Alexis Leon Midford tells Ciel he possesses the blood of a genius game maker—it is sure to be an exciting match.[72]

The next day, Elizabeth watches the cricket match, sitting alongside the rest of the Phantomhive servants sans Snake. Baldroy comments that this is bad. Finnian questions him about what is wrong; he also adds that the Blue House is "going out so fast." Mey-Rin comments that 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.[73] When he has finally finished, Mey-Rin exclaims that the game will last so long. Baldroy reassures them that that is why he is here as chef—the food he has prepared will sustain them through the game.[74] Later on, everyone enjoys the food immensely; Baldroy is happy they like it, but he comments that it is not the pie he made. [75] (Elizabeth is blissfully unaware just how dangerous Baldroy's real pie was; luckily Sebastian provided Tanaka with a replacement.)

She then is present along with everyone else watching Team Blue on their boat ride, and then she laughs good-naturedly when Ciel and the other boys fall into the water.[76] During the party, she along with Soma and McMillan surround Ciel, so they can have a good time with him.

Emerald Witch Arc

After receiving news that Ciel Phantomhive has returned from Germany, Elizabeth visits the Phantomhive Manor and excitedly enters Ciel's office, only to find Ciel on top of Sieglinde Sullivan. Thinking Ciel is being unfaithful to her, she lunges at him, but her attack is blocked by Sebastian Michaelis. Soon after, Elizabeth sits with Ciel, Sieglinde, and Soma Asman Kadar as Sebastian explains the situation to her. She then apologizes for misunderstanding things. When Soma remarks that Sebastian's strict lessons are cruel, Elizabeth asserts that the difficult lessons can become fun with encouragement from everyone, and that they should do them together, a suggestion Soma agrees to. When Ciel refuses to partake in the lessons, she angrily states that he must because Sieglinde is his friend. She turns to Sieglinde, next, saying that she envies her, for all English girls dream of being invited to Queen Victoria's drawing rooms and that she, herself, hopes to go someday soon. She adds that they will do the lessons together and make Sieglinde "into a splendid lady." After telling Sieglinde to call her Lizzie and the latter asking Elizabeth to call her "Sully," Elizabeth proposes that they commence. Subsequently, she forces Ciel to practice his balance, while the rest look on with amusement. Not long after, Elizabeth lectures Ciel for being so preoccupied with his work that he obliged Sebastian to help Sieglinde all on his own.[77]

Blue Cult Arc

Elizabeth greets her brother Edward Midford when he returns home one night from a Sphere Music Hall party. She asks him if the party was fun, and when Edward affirms that it was, she says that she wants to go as well. After hesitating, Edward agrees to take her with him next time. She rejoices and states that she will have to "dress to the nines"; Edward affectionately pats her head, saying that there is no need since she is the cutest in all the world.[78]

The week after, Elizabeth and Edward attend one of the Sphere Music Hall meetings, with Cheslock in tow. There, Elizabeth notices the fortune teller Blavat and his customers. After learning from Edward that Blavat is a diviner, an excited Elizabeth runs to get her fortune told, and Edward chases after her. When Blavat is finished reading the fortune of a lady, Elizabeth requests to have her fortune told. Blavat instructs her to prick her fingertip and place a drop of blood into the cup he is holding. Edward angrily voices his objection, prompting Elizabeth to assure him that she can handle the pain since she constantly pricks herself while embroidering; she then proceeds to prick her fingertip with Blavat's needle and let her blood drop into the cup.[79]

While offering Elizabeth some gauze for her finger, Blavat announces that Elizabeth is under the divine protection of Canopus; Canopus is a star that shines brightly at the Keel of Argo; those protected by it are independent, unique, determined, and fixated on things such as their hobbies. When he points out that she must be fastidious about her clothes and shoes, she confirms that that is the case, while the audience looks on with amazement. Blavat says that he can sense another strong obsession in her and that is her fiancé. He whispers to Elizabeth that she is "quite distressed" about her fiancé for some reason. When she asks how he can tell, Blavat claims that because she is less endowed than his previous customer, he can peer deeper into her heart; the comment embarrasses Elizabeth and enrages Edward, who shakes Blavat aggressively, berating him and his "lecherous eyes." After Elizabeth pulls Edward away, Blavat asserts that, joking aside, the stars are whispering that she has a bright future beyond her anguish. He adds that she should visit him again for another consultation if she wishes to know more. Elizabeth is absorbed in thought while Edward tells her that they are going home.[80]

The week after, Elizabeth lies to Francis that she received a dinner invitation from a friend, and then leaves to the Sphere Music Hall with Paula. For the next couple weeks after that, she does the same thing and ultimately stops returning home.[81] Elizabeth meets Edward at the music hall a few times; there, Edward tries to convince her to go home, but she refuses and then states that she has not grown to hate home — simply, her "radiance" lies there, at the music hall.[82][83]

Some time afterward, Elizabeth, who is wearing a Canopus bracelet, stands in a room with four doors. Blavat approaches her from behind and encourages her to go through a certain door, which she does.[84]

Later, within the Sphere Music Hall, Elizabeth sees an unconscious Ciel and tearfully apologizes to him for being unable to save him.[85]

One day, Sebastian Michaelis enters a room with a check-patterned hallway. Elizabeth lunges at him with a sword in each hand, but he manages to dodge the attack.[86]

Elizabeth and Sebastian battle, with the former determined not to let him pass. Sebastian attempts to persuade her to go home, but she refuses to. He asks her why she does this even though she has always wanted to see Ciel smile, and she asserts that she does not know. In tears, she states that she, and only she, cannot "go back over there." They continue fighting, with Elizabeth shattering the glass window behind Sebastian. In subsequence, Sebastian says that her strength is admirable for a human, and delivers a blow to her chest, which incapacitates her. She tries to stand, but faints instead.[87]

Later, Elizabeth wakes up in a bedroom at Ciel's townhouse. She ties pieces of cloth together and uses that as a rope to climb down the window and escape.[88][89]

Paula and Elizabeth inside the carriage, before the moment where Elizabeth disappears

Instead of visiting the manor with her mother on Ciel's birthday, she goes to the Frost Fair with her maid, Paula, and finds a gift for him – a Noah's Ark toy.[90] However, it turns out to not be one of the original arks built by Ciel's Funtom Corporation, causing her to break it in distress. Inside, though, she finds the Shard of Hope, which is similar enough to Ciel's family ring that she previously broke that she thinks it will make a good gift. The two of them arrive at his manor the day before his birthday, but she notices that he has his ring fixed. Taking the present back, Paula and Elizabeth leave quickly. While on their way back to the Midford estate, they get stuck in traffic, when Elizabeth hears a tune that attracts her attention. She goes to investigate and encounters Drossel Keinz, who kidnaps her to make her into a doll.[91]

Ciel and Pluto go to rescue her, with Sebastian and Grell Sutcliff meeting up with them later. Pluto leads the four of them to the tower she is trapped in. when they find her inside, Drossel uses puppet strings to control her body, and he forces her to attack Ciel. Grell cuts down the strings, and Sebastian engages in a brief battle with Drossel. While Sebastian is battling Drossel, Ciel holds Elizabeth in his arms and she asks if they can have a party for his birthday, which he agrees to. At the party, she is very happy when he finds the Shard of Hope in his Christmas pudding, taking it as a sign of good things to come for him.[92]

Conspiracy and Revenge Arc

During a break between Fred Abberline's death and the exposition, Elizabeth shows up at the manor and works with the staff to make the manor filled with laughter, as it had been in the past. She then spends the day playing chess with Ciel, which she decides is a "cute" game. When they go down to dinner, the servants' wide smiles seem to amuse Ciel, much to her delight.[93] After the London fire has been put out, she is seen in a field of blue flowers, worried about Ciel and the other members of the Phantomhive household. Paula arrives and tells her there is no news of them, which seems to sadden her further. She then makes a ring out of a blue flower to cheer herself up, as the color of the flower reminds Elizabeth of the blue stone in Ciel's family ring. However, it is blown away and lands in the river, where Ciel later finds it, and Sebastian puts it on his finger.[94]

Kuroshitsuji II

Ciel Cares for Lizzy KII

Elizabeth pesters Ciel to come along with her on a quest to find the legendary white deer. She manages to tell Ciel that she wants him to be happy forever like what the white deer supposedly gives everyone who catches sight of it. Ciel, surprised and touched, calls her "Lizzy" again, much to her pleasure.[95]

She is devastated when Sebastian informs her that Ciel has lost all the memories of the events of the past year, and she agrees to not talk much about it, so as not to act unnaturally in front of him. She goes along to the costume party organized by Alois Trancy. Alois forces her to dance with him, causing her sadness and annoying Ciel.[96]

In her final appearance, she rushes all the way to Ciel's manor as usual. She protests that his all-black clothing (at this point, Ciel has already become a demon) is not cute at all and in response, Ciel asks her to dance with him, much to her surprise. She complies happily. However, midway through the dance, she notices that Ciel's left eye is red, but after a flash, she sees that it has gone back to blue.[97]

  • "To take care of the husband is the wife's job, you know."[101]
  • (To Ciel)"This uncute appearance...I didn't want you of all people to see me in such a state.But...this time I will protect you!"[102]
  • (About Ciel Phantomhive) "I'm fine for not being cute, as long as it means I can protect you!"[103]
  • "Wearing my pitch-black clothes, with my pitch-black feelings. One month of a pitch-black winter had passed when suddenly, Ciel came back along with a pitch-black butler."[104]
  • "The Ciel that had returned to us had become thinner and shorter than I was. But soon I realized that it wasn't Ciel who had become shorter; it was me who had grown taller. At that point in time, I made a decision. That I would become a wife capable of protecting Ciel."[105]
  • "For Ciel, who is trying hard to be seen as an adult, I will smile and walk beside him in my childish low-heeled shoes. Low heeled shoes, mother's teaching, a sword to protect you—those are the 'nice things' that my current self is made of."[106]
