5 Vincent Phantomhive

Additionally, Vincent was highly skilled at manipulating people; he and his acquaintances were known as “Aristocrats of Evil” Vincent had a strong sense of pride in his men, as demonstrated when he defended Blue House as its prefect.
4 Grell Sutcliff
Grell is over-the-top, flamboyant, and outspoken—they once toldS ebastian Michaelis their wish to do some “vigorous exercise” with him. They possess a strong predilection for the color red, and believe that substances which reflect that color, such as blood, can be used to achieve beauty. He is a ruthless, bloodthirsty individual who is even willing to kill his own comrades once he loses interest in them. Grell is predisposed to resorting to violence in order to eliminate whoever annoys or hinders them.
Known only by his profession, Undertaker is a mysterious man whose scarred face is rarely fully visible beneath his long hair and crooked top hat. He tends to punctuate his words with sweeping gestures and creepy giggles. Undertaker has great and significant connections with the underworld societies because murder victims from the underworld are often delivered to his place of business. Thus, he has voluminous knowledge in these macabre cases that allows him to be an informant.
2 Ciel Phantomhive
Ciel is an arrogant and shrewd boy, with numerous exalted positions. Ciel is very strict, proud, and accustomed to a luxurious lifestyle. As a result, he has considerable difficulty dressing himself up and doing household chores if left on his own. Ciel is stern with his orders, especially in the assertion of his authority, because he expects his butler, Sebastian Michaelis, to complete them without any shortcomings. Ciel often finds it entertaining to challenge Sebastian in areas of both strength and skill. He and Sebastian frequently work together, and only the latter seems to be fully aware of Ciel’s schemes. Furthermore, Ciel has a relatively cold outlook on life. His main goal is for those who have betrayed the Phantomhive family to experience the same level of humiliation and suffering he did
1 Sebastian Michaelis
Sebastian is a dedicated butler to Ciel Phantomhive and upholds a strong sense of duty to his master and household. He faithfully follows and carries out every one of Ciel’s orders, while ensuring that the Phantomhive household runs smoothly. He does not sleep—for demons deem it as a form of luxury—and thus, he frequently performs tasks for Ciel at night.Sebastian predominantly appears as a courteous and impeccable servant. However, he is, in actuality, callous, heartless, and sadistic; he is ruthless when attacking others on Ciel’s orders, and had, at one point, deliberately delayed saving Ciel for his own amusement. Sebastian usually expresses his diabolic nature through his dark, sarcastic humor and inability to see good in anyone.
