Shiori Genpō (幻蜂汐璃, Genpou Shiori) is a descendant of the Phantomhive family. Since only males can take the reins of the family, Shiori wears male clothes and the name Kiyoharu to lead the massive Phantom Corporation. Sebastian watches over and protects Shiori, but at a price — he consumes her soul.

Character OutlineEdit

Shiori is a teenage girl with brown eyes and short black hair. Since only males can head the Phantomhive family, Shiori wears male clothes. She typically dresses in a way that suits her noble standing, and has a very extensive and elegant wardrobe. Similar to Ciel Phantomhive, Shiori has a seal in her right eye as a symbol of her contract with Sebastian Michaelis.

HistoryEdit

A descendant of the Phantomhive family, Ernest Phantomhive moved to Japan, renamed their family name to Genpō, and brought the Funtom Company with him. His descendant, the third generation earl, and his wife, were assassinated. They left behind their daughter Shiori.

Lin has a great deal of respect for, and a slight fear of Sebastian Michaelis. She is very loyal to her master, Shiori Genpō, and had sworn that she will stay by her side and protect her.

Lin's family has been serving Genpō family for generations; they live for that very purpose. Her family instructed her, when she was young, to protect the Genpoō family at all costs. On one fateful day, she failed to protect Shiori's father and mother, and Shiori went missing. She thought of ending her life, but Shiori eventually came back, now disguised as a boy, in order to assume the position as the Queen's Watchdog. Lin vowed to stay by Shiori's side.

TriviaEdit

  • Lin's character is based off of Mey-Rin.
