Lady Elizabeth Ethel Cordelia Midford (エリザベス・ミッドフォード, Erizabesu Middofōdo) is the swordwoman daughter of Leader of the British Knight, Alexis Leon and Marchioness Francis Midford. A maternal member from the Phantomhives, Elizabeth is the fiancée of the current head, Ciel.

Appearance

Elizabeth is a young teenage girl who has a slender but strong body and pale skin. She has emerald big green eyes, and 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. Though having a lady-like appearance, Elizabeth usually appears younger due to her childish outfits.

Personality

Kuro27

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

Elizabeth is a strong-willed yet understanding individual, with Blavat Sky describing her as someone who moves "to their own rhythm."[4]. Like her mother, she often directly voices her opinions of others: In comedic moments, such as when disagreed with, she is prone to temper tantrums and bouts of self-centeredness. However, in the serious occasions that she upsets someone, Elizabeth feels horrible and may even cry over her mistake.[5] She often shows kindness and consideration towards others, encouraging her dear ones when they are frustrated and recognizing their different priorities. In general, Elizabeth is an open-minded person who notices others' differences but respect them as she thinks all things/beings complement each other.

In front of others, Elizabeth persistently maintains an innocent, delicate demeanor due to her aunt Angelina Dalles had instilled in her the notion that all ladies should act weak and endearing in front of their lords, smile often, and be surrounded by nice things [6], such as little animals and pretty flowers. This made her being ""stubbornly fixed"[4] on her hobbies[7], being both extravagant and somewhat fastidious about her clothes and tending to impose her preferences upon others while doggedly refusing to take no for an answer.

However, beneath this facade of ladylike mannerisms, Elizabeth is a truly brave, determinated, resourceful, and natural talented fencer who usually spins or thrusts double swords for both offensive and defensive movements, which almost appears like dancing. [8] This was demonstrated when she effortlessly killed several Bizarre Dolls in order to protect Ciel[9], and later when she could briefly fight against Sebastian Michaelis, who recognized that her strength is admirable for a human being.[10] Her brother even admitted that her sword-wielding skills are greater to his own.[11]

Moreover, Ciel is a very important person to Elizabeth, to the degree that Blavat even labelled her feelings almost as an "obsession".[12] She usually goes through great lengths just to make him smile, although she acknowledges that she does overdo it occasionally,[13] like when she redecorated his house and insisted that Ciel refer to her by her nickname, "Lizzie" (リジー, Rijī).[14] Futhermore, Elizabeth is frequently consumed with worry for him,[15] thus earnestly desires to protect him at all costs, both emotionally and physically.[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 despite having fought with zombies and (though probably unknown to her) a demon.[19]

History

Elizabeth child

Ciel and Elizabeth when they were children.

Elizabeth born in the year 1874 from Alex Leon and Frances Midford. Her parents arranged her future marriage with her mother's family, the infamous Queen's Watchdogs Phantomhives, being promised to their oldest son Ciel. Despite her young age and gender, Elizabeth was trained in the art of fencing, having a natural talent which even surpassed her own older brother Edward's.

Since they are cousins, Elizabeth knew the Phantomhive children 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. Elizabeth described the place as being once filled with laughter at that time.[20]

On one occasion, Ciel was fencing with her mother, later saying 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, Elizabeth wanted to quit training, but her mother would not allow her to for both Ciel's and Elizabeth's sakes.[21]

On Ciel's tenth birthday, her maid Paula reported about the brutal murders of the Phantomhives. Later, a younger Elizabeth wept at their graves, while overhearing the ladies, indifferent to their deaths, gossip about trivial things. After one month, "Ciel" suddenly returned with his new butler, Sebastian Michaelis. She was greatly 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 along with" 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 Phantomhive 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 asks Ciel Phantomhive to wear the clothes she has personally picked out for him.[24]

Later, Ciel emerges in the ballroom dressed in the outfit she selected, causing her to be elated. However, Elizabeth notices his Phantomhive blue ring, indirectly making her greatly dissatisfied as 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 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 Michaelis 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 mother.[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, Elizabeth maneuvers over to the "girl" in another attempt to speak to her, but gets distracted by a bizarre magic act.[29] Moments later, 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' funeral. She stands before her casket while mourning her death. Her attention is then drawn to a latecomer at the door – Ciel, who is carrying a red dress who places on Angelina's corpse[31], with Elizabeth observing as rose petals from a carriage maintained by Sebastian drift into the church.[32]

One month after the Jack the Ripper incident, Elizabeth and her mother, Francis Midford, arrive at 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. 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.[35]

Afterward, Elizabeth tells Sebastian that she is relieved Ciel has returned to his normal self; she was worried about his condition because he was so close to Angelina. She says that she does not want unhappy memories to befall Ciel, striving to cheer him up with her own methods, but they are ineffective for most part. Sebastian assures her that Ciel appreciates her, and she thanks him.[36]

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 compliments Ciel for his courage.[37] After that, 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.[38] Afterward, she, Ciel, Francis, Finnian, and Tanaka observe the snow.[39]

Circus Arc

Elizabeth goes to the Phantomhive Manor, while Ciel and Sebastian are at Baron Kelvin's estate to investigate the Noah's Ark Circus kidnappings, refusing to leave until she sees Ciel.[40] That night, Dagger, Beast, Jumbo, Wendy, and Peter arrive at the manor to capture Ciel and kill any witnesses. Elizabeth 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.[41]

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.[42] 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.[43] 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.[44]

Afterward, Soma Asman Kadar, Agni, and Elizabeth introduce themselves to each other, with 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 than he had been in a while. She says that it would be nice if that was true.[45]

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.[46] Subsequently, Sebastian tells Elizabeth that he would like to rectify what she has previously said – he asserts that he does not tell lies.[47]

Luxury Liner Arc

Elizabeth and her family plan to travel to New York on the luxury passenger ship Campania for three weeks from April 17, 1889. Her father has her invite Ciel on their family trip. Thus, Elizabeth heads to the Phantomhive Manor and relays the offer to Ciel, though he declines due to being busy. After noticing her disappointment, Ciel 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.[48]

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 and Snake. He claims that he wanted to surprise her, who tears up and passionately hugs him. Francis scolds her for displaying indecent behavior, and Edward agrees with his mother. Then, 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.[49]

Three days later, at the dinner party, Elizabeth leaves Ciel to get him some cake[50] but when she returns, she discovers that he has disappeared. Eventually, she catches sight of him going somewhere, which prompts her to follow. She reunites with him on a staircase, trying to give him the cake but he silences her and that it is dangerous where they are so she should go back to Francis. Not wanting to be left alone, Elizabeth pursues him to the bottom freight storage overhears Snake telling Ciel about how good the food is, with her asserting that the cake is better than the food. To his dismay, Ciel learns she has followed him, but she states that she wants him to eat the cake since it is the biggest part of the kind that Ciel likes. She shows him the plate but to realizes that it is empty, with a Bizarre Doll behind her eating the cake being about to bite her.[51] However, Ciel saves her in time, though a great number of Bizarre Dolls begin to emerge from their coffin subsequently.[52]

Soon after, the Bizarre Dolls break out of their coffins, Elizabeth, Ciel, and Snake run, but the exit is blocked. Ciel orders Snake to assist Elizabeth as she climbs to the top of luggage but after a struggle with the Bizarre Dolls, all three are on top of the luggage. Ciel and Snake then discuss about the Bizarre Dolls, with details which frightening Elizabeth, who attempt to distract them with no avail.[53] Three 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.[54] Ciel sends Sebastian to look after the rest of the Midford family leaves, while he 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.[55]

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 as she wants Ciel to think of her as cute until the very end, but he 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 to make her a new dress next time, with both apologizing to each other. .[56] Then, Ciel coughs, which worries her; but he claims that he choked on some water and urges her to climb.

Elizabeth and Ciel reach the second-class restaurant, where Sebastian helps them down from the duct. He informs them that Elizabeth's family is rescuing the other passengers with 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, trying to rave Sebastian, who protects Elizabeth and Ciel. Elizabeth asks Sebastian who Grell is, with 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.[57]

Lizzy

Elizabeth fighting the Bizarre Dolls.

The torrent of water separates Elizabeth and Ciel. A horde of Bizarre Dolls approach her; Ciel's leg is wounded 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, before grabbing to swords from a decoration on the wall and begins killing the Bizarre Dolls quite easily, to Ciel's and Sebastian's shock. She kills the Bizarre Dolls behind Ciel thourgh thrusts 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 and the wife of the Queen's Watchdog.[58]

While fighting the Bizarre Dolls with her spinning swords, Elizabeth remembers her past, as well as the lessons Madam Red taught her.[59] Once she is done killing all the Bizarre Dolls in their vicinity, she tries to attack Grell but Sebastian stops her and apologizes, saying that he will take over from there. Soon after Grell and Ronald leave in search for Rian, Elizabeth learns that Ciel has hurt his leg and cannot walk and offers to carry him on her back but immediately becomes embarrassed. She bursts into tears to Ciel's and Sebastian's astonishment; admitting that she is afraid that Ciel would no longer want her as a wife because she is "scary," but Ciel assures that it is not the case. Subsequently, Snake reunites with them, and they decide to meet up with Elizabeth's family.[60]

They head to the first-class deck, where Edward is, causing Elizabeth to running at him. While they happily embrace, he notices that Elizabeth is carrying a sword and realizes that she must have fought, commenting 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 as he has some business to finish on the ship, to Elizabeth's and Snake's shock. After Edward gives his consent, Elizabeth asserts that she will stay with Ciel, which leads Sebastian to strike the back of her neck in order to render her unconscious.[61] The Midfords are in lifeboats[62], with Elizabeth, Edward, and Snake sharing one, by the time the ship heavily tilts[63] and breaks in two.[64] A rescue ships comes at dawn, and the Midfords return to London.[65]

On Easter Day, Elizabeth and Edward head over to Phantomhive Manor, in order to celebrate the holiday with Ciel, Sebastian, Soma, Agni, Baldroy, Finnian, Snake, Tanaka, and Mey-Rin, and Nina.[66] She has all of them wear bunny ears as she 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, which he agrees, to her confusion.

Elizabeth 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, impressing her 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, with Elizabeth signals the start of the game.[67]

Ultimately, Ciel and Sebastian retrieve her egg, which Elizabeth has placed on one of the candle holders of a chandelier.[68] They go to the feast held outdoors, where she 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. Elizabeth wonders what happened to him in the one month he was gone.[69]

Public School Arc

Some weeks later, Elizabeth attends Weston College's opening ceremony for the 1889's Inter-Dormitory Cricket Tournament along with her family due to her brother Edward. When the party commences, Lawrence Bluewer's sisters swamp Ciel but 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 and Edgar Redmond, she holds on to a knocked out Edward, realizing she may have over done it.

Furthermore, although Sebastian does his best to remain unnoticed, Francis recognizes him, realizing that they are both here on the Queen's business. Elizabeth also notices who he is, and quickly informs her father and brother of his true identity. Edward comments he did not recognize Sebastian, stunning Ciel, adding that when his sister is around he does not see anyone else. After 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.[70], though their father announces that he hopes to see another "Miracle of the Sapphires." After he narrates the entire story, Ciel cannot believe that his own father was in Blue House, though Alexis tells Ciel he possesses the blood of a genius game maker—it is sure to be an exciting match.[71]

The next day, Elizabeth watches the cricket match, sitting alongside the rest of the Phantomhive servants sans Snake. After Baldroy comments that this is bad, Finnian questions him about what is wrong; also adding that the Blue House is "going out so fast." Mey-Rin comments that Blue House sucks, but Elizabeth insists that they must cheer. Since Mey-Rin and Finnian are unaware of the rules, Baldroy explains them in detail, with the former exclaiming that the game will last so long.[72] Baldroy reassures them that that is why he is here as chef—the food he has prepared will sustain them through the game.[73] Later on, everyone enjoys the food immensely; Baldroy is happy they like it but he comments that it is not the pie he made. [74] Elizabeth is blissfully unaware just how dangerous Baldroy's real pie was; luckily Sebastian provided Tanaka with a replacement.

Elizabeth 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.[75] During the party, Elizabeth along with Soma and McMillan surround Ciel so that they can have a good time with him.

Emerald Witch Arc

After receiving news that Ciel 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, Elizabeth lunges at him but her attack is blocked by Sebastian. Soon after, Elizabeth sits with Ciel, Sieglinde and Soma as Sebastian explains the situation to her, she 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. Elizabeth turns to Sieglinde, saying that she envies her as most English girls dream of being invited to Queen Victoria's drawing rooms and that she 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, Elizabeth forces Ciel to practice his balance, while the rest look on with amusement. Not long after, she lectures Ciel for being so preoccupied with his work that he obliged Sebastian to help Sieglinde all on his own.[76]

Blue Cult Arc

Elizabeth greets her brother Edward 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", causing Edward to affectionately pat her head and say that there is no need since she is the cutest in all the world.[77]

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 Sky and his customers, learning he is a diviner from her brother. Excited, Elizabeth runs to get her fortune told with Edward chases after her. When Blavat is finished reading the fortune of a lady, Elizabeth requests to have her fortune told, with the man 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, and proceeds to prick her fingertip with Blavat's needle and let her blood drip into the cup.[78]

While offering Elizabeth some gauze for her finger, Blavat announces that Elizabeth is under the divine protection of Canopus; 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 her fiancé, whispering 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; embarrassing Elizabeth and enrages Edward, who shakes Blavat aggressively and berating 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 and 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.[79]

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.[80] Elizabeth meets Edward at the music hall a few times; where he 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.[81][82]

Some time afterward, Elizabeth is seen wearing a Canopus bracelet and standing in a room with four doors. Blavat approaches her from behind and encourages her to go through a certain door, which she does.[83] Later, within the Sphere Music Hall, Elizabeth sees an unconscious Ciel and tearfully apologizes to him for being unable to save him.[84]

One day, Sebastian enters a room with a check-patterned hallway, but Elizabeth lunges at him with a sword in each hand, though he manages to dodge the attack.[85] The two battle through spinning movements and defensive positions, with Elizabeth 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 asserts that she does not know. In tears, Elizabeth states that she, and only she, cannot "go back over there."

They continue fighting, with Elizabeth shattering the glass window behind Sebastian with a potent thrust through her sword. In subsequence, Sebastian says that her strength is admirable for a human just before delivering a blow to her chest, which incapacitates her. She tries to stand, but faints instead.[86]

Later, Elizabeth wakes up in a bedroom at Ciel's townhouse. During the night, Elizabeth takes advantage of the silence and ties pieces of cloth together to using it as a rope in order to climb down the window and escape.[87][88] Her whereabouts are unknown since then.
