Earl Vincent Phantomhive (ヴィンセント・ファントムハイヴ, Vinsento Fantomuhaivu) was the former head of the Phantomhive house, and an Aristocrat of Evil. He was the husband of Rachel Phantomhive and the father of Ciel Phantomhive, who has inherited his titles.

Character Outline

Vincent was a handsome, well-dressed man with short bluish-black hair, brown eyes, and a beauty mark under his left eye.

Vincent was exceptionally kind, courteous, and chivalrous, as indicated when he noticed that Angelina Dalles was self-conscious of her red hair and made a point to compliment it.[3] He always spared a minute to exchange pleasantries, while others of his social status looked on with disdain.[4] Vincent was a loving father, and his family was extremely important to him.[5]

Additionally, Vincent was highly skilled at manipulating people; he and his acquaintances were known as "Aristocrats of Evil."[6] Vincent had a strong sense of pride in his men, as demonstrated when he defended Blue House as its prefect. He was also very confident; he had issued a challenge to Diedrich, declaring that whoever loses to the other in the the annual cricket tournament will perform one free request for the winner;[7] despite the odds stacked against him—that is, his house had never achieved victory before—he persevered and managed to bring about the "Miracle of the Sapphires."[8] Vincent was, thus, admired by many, and Alexis Leon Midford regarded him as a "genius game-maker."[9]

History

Ch 103 Vincent Phantomhive's lineage

Vincent Phantomhive's lineage.

Ch75 Vincent as a student

Vincent as a young man.

Vincent was the head of the Phantomhive household and acted as Queen Victoria's Watchdog.

As a young man, Vincent attended Weston College with Alexis Leon Midford and Diedrich. He was the prefect of the Sapphire Owl dormitory. Vincent was idly reading a book on the lawn, while neglecting the preparations for the annual cricket tournament on June 4th, when he was approached by an exasperated Diedrich. Vincent made a snide remark that "everything German is pretty tough to handle," fueling Diedrich's anger. Diedrich swung his cricket bat, and missed Vincent, hitting his book instead. He complained that he was forced to handle all the preparations himself, and commented that since the leader is representative of the pack, the rest in Blue House must be awful as well. Provoked, Vincent proposed a contest: whichever dorm is the winner of the tournament will have the loser perform a free request for him. Later, Vincent led his house to their only triumph in the annual cricket tournament—this astounding event was dubbed as the "Miracle of the Sapphires." Afterward, at the Swan Gazebo, Diedrich accepted his loss to Vincent and asserted that he will carry out Vincent's one request. Vincent then told him to become his fag, much to Diedrich's alarm as they are from separate dorms; however, Vincent stated that he must keep his promise regardless and that whenever he is to call him, Diedrich must come without question. He added that their affiliation will continue past graduation and drifted on a boat away from Diedrich (though he was pursued by him), relishing in his success at finally attaining a "loyal German dog."[10]

Ep44 Reunion

Vincent and Ciel reunite with Chlaus.

While he was alive, Vincent hosted a variety of parties that many other nobles attended. Kelvin, as a philanthropist, attended one of these parties, and after encountering Ciel, he was entranced. Chlaus then arrived, and Vincent suggested going with him to Germany next time to lessen whatever tension has arisen.[11]

Ep44 Vincent and Diedrich

Vincent and Diedrich chat.

Kelvin made a continued effort to network with Vincent, and after searching desperately, he discovered that Vincent and his acquaintances were "Aristocrats of Evil." In the meantime, Vincent, having called Diedrich back from Germany, told him he needed his help with a matter. He added that he did him a huge favor two years ago on the Windsor case and that Diedrich was indulging in his food; Diedrich then reluctantly agreed to listen. Suddenly, Vincent was approached by Kelvin, and Diedrich impatiently suggested changing rooms. Vincent excused himself from Kelvin and followed Diedrich, leaving Kelvin with the impression that "special people can only be touched by other special people."[12]

At one point in time, the father of Angelina and Rachel introduced them to Vincent. Vincent complimented Angelina's hair, and later he was arranged to marry Rachel. A while after his marriage, Rachel gave birth to his son. Vincent often spent time with his family whenever he got home from work.[13]

On Ciel's tenth birthday, December 14, 1885,[1] Vincent, Rachel, and the family dog, Sebastian, were killed in a fire, his son was kidnapped, and his manor was burnt to the ground; the perpetrator of the disaster is unknown.[14][15]

Book of Doomsday Arc

Vincent and Rachel Phantomhive

Vincent and Rachel

In Episode 18, Angela Blanc created a twisted, combined form of Vincent and Rachel, which she uses to lead the cult as the priest. When she makes the creation try to kill Ciel Phantomhive, Sebastian Michaelis stops it by destroying it with a piece of broken glass.

Afterward, Angela kidnaps Ciel and tries to rewrite his past, conjuring up images of Rachel and Vincent to convince Ciel to allow her to. However, Ciel refuses to listen to Angela's manipulations through their images, causing them to disappear.


Quotes

  • (To Angelina Dalles) "There is nothing shameful about being different from others. This is your character! Ann's red hair is really beautiful, just like the color of red spider lilies in their full bloom. Red really suits you. You should have more confidence in yourself."[16]
  • (Referring to Diedrich) "Finally, I've got one. I've wanted one for the longest time. A faithful German dog."[17]
  • (To the Readers) "Love is a magnificent thing, but, incidentally, it can also give birth to a dreadful tragedy… Surely a demon couldn’t have guessed that, could he?"[18]

Trivia

  • Vincent appears in the short story written by Yana Toboso for the Kuroshitsuji Comic Anthology called "With Father!"[20]
  • Diedrich used to pejoratively call him "Mole" back when they were Prefects.[21]
