https://plus.google.com/110958168864121891169 Aloιѕ Trancy トランシー : 👰👑💕Seхy, Naυgнтy, Bιтcнy Me💕👑👰 Appearance Alois is a teenager with icy blue eyes and platinum...
👰👑💕Seхy, Naυgнтy, Bιтcнy Me💕👑👰


Appearance

Alois is a teenager with icy blue eyes and platinum blond hair; a singular, noticeable cowlick curls up to the left. He wears a long, plum purple frock coat; a forest green vest with black stripes and a black back; a white button-up shirt; black shorts or black trousers; long black stockings; brown high heel boots with purple laces; and a charcoal ribbon tied around his neck.


Alois's contract seal

Located on his tongue is hisFaustian contract seal with Claude Faustus, which takes on the shape of an encircled, gold and orange pentagram. His contract seal is not visible at all times; it is only shown if Claude is nearby.

Personality

Alois is a generally cheerful but sadistic individual. His emotions can alternate unpredictably from enthusiasm to anger. He also loses interest in things fairly quickly. Alois often uses harsh and impolite language such as "bloody" or other expletives, regardless of whom he is speaking to.

One of Alois's few consistent traits is his attachment to his butler Claude Faustus, whose attention he constantly tries to attract. He showcases an extreme need for affection and acknowledgement.


Alois punishes Hannah Annafellows.

Alois enjoys wielding authority, and typically utilizes his power in a deliberately vicious, barbarous, and contemptuous manner. He frequently abuses others and makes them feel inferior for his own gratification. Alois directs his hostility particularly toward Hannah Annafellows, by lashing out physically and belittling her with vile remarks, especially when he believes that she is trying to take someone else's attention away from him.

Despite how he mistreated her, Hannah later admitted that she had loved Alois all along. Following the revelation, his attitude toward her changed completely; he accepted her love, since he could longer gain any of the recognition he sought from Claude.

History


Alois as a slave to the Earl of Trancy.

The unofficial story is that shortly after he was born, Alois was kidnapped. His mother, in her deep grief, committed suicide and left his fatherto search for him alone.[2]

Alois claimed that he was kept as a slave in an unknown village during his time abducted. An event, which occurred within the village, left all the villagers dead and Alois as the only survivor. Alois returned with Claude Faustus and became the head of the Trancy household after his father died under mysterious circumstances.


Alois as a child.

Later, however, Alois experienced a flashback about his actual past as Jim Macken. As orphans from a village, he and his little brother Luka had been treated unkindly by the villagers ever since their parents died, which forced them to survive as thieves and pickpockets. Jim expressed a bitter hatred of the villagers, and declared that everyone who was cruel to them ought to die.

When a mysterious calamity swept the village and killed nearly everyone, including Luka, Jim was taken in by the head of the Trancy estate for the purpose of pedophilia along with a group of other boys. While in captivity, Jim had heard rumours about a fairy that granted wishes; after following the instructions given to him, he summoned the spider demon Claude. Upon realizing that he had no wish to fulfill, Claude told Jim to call for him again when he finds a wish.

Although Earl Trancy originally despised him because of his "filthy" eyes, Jim set about seducing him and quickly became his favourite bed-mate and subsequent heir. Jim, parading from then on as Alois Trancy, received favourable treatment such as fashionable clothes and more freedom in the mansion.

Not knowing that it was actually Hannah, Alois discovered that the person responsible for the strange deaths in the village was Sebastian Michaelis during his Faustian contract before Ciel Phantomhive. Alois formed a contract with Claude, vowing revenge on Sebastian. When Earl Trancy died, Alois became the new earl and released all the captive boys.

The Sextant in Shadow
An old bounty returned from the #theHulls past, lurking around their hidden lair, searching for the Sextant in Shadow. The Hull’s concern for their lair's security struggled against their curiosity to know more about the Sextant. And now they’re finally on the verge of its discovery. This is what they can find.

Appearance
The Sextant in Shadow has a large curved piece, one-sixth of a circle, nearly two hand spans at its broadest, made from darkly etched bone and bronze. Mounted on this are numerous polished lens, mirrored silvers, gears, toggles, crosshairs, scaled markings and other paraphernalia. It is chill to touch, with a faint pulse felt if you hold your breath and still your own. It has a small Makers plate: Tyrnkerian Companions. A grubbier engraving shows it was once the property of Milos Atah. It appears flecked by shifting shadows, even in the strongest light.

Ghostfield observation: In the ghostfield, the other five parts of the Sextant can be seen. The whole can be likened to a helix of sextants, spiralling out at impossible angles from the physical sixth. Gathered from anecdotes, talking with ghosts and others who’ve seen it, and through direct ghostfield observation.

History
This must be one of the last remaining mechanisms crafted by Tyrnkerian Companions. Records of the Companions have been rare since ___. They were known as master alchemists and mechanists, and their creations are sought by mariners, occultists, scholars and criminals. This Sextant was salvaged from the ship Blood Rose when it floated close to Doskvol, abandoned and scuttled at sea. From there the Sextant made its way into the black market inventory of the Hive, where it disappeared some __ years ago, only to reappear recently in the hands of ___.

Info for the gathering
Rumour: The Sextant can be held and controlled by a living body or a ghost, in more or less the same manner. Gathered from stories about the Hive theft, the Blood Rose and other tall tales.

Experimentation: By correct adjustment and use (of its physical instrumentation) the Sextant can allow the user to attune with the ghostfield and to perceive spirits and ghosts. Gathered from exploring histories of the Tyrnkerian Companions, journals of users and scholars, and through direct experimentation.

Design research: Broadly, the Sextant is designed to find shortcuts in the ghostfield that can be traversed. Technically, this involves a non-Euclidean transformation of the planar angle between an object and a referential constellation. In practice this requires using the Sextant (along with astrotidal charts, etc.) to:
– sight a destination point in the physical realm, typically an object visible from a distance
– sight a reference point, such as a constellation submerged in a large body of water
– correctly adjust all six parts of the sextant, both the physical sextant and its five counterparts in the ghost field, and
– make calculations referring to tabulations and predictive charts.

The end result is effectively sighting/calculating electroplasmic pathways to the destination that skip the intervening space and can be traversed by ghosts and other disembodied things. Gathered from technical manuals, reverse engineering studies, crib notes and journals of use, and through extensive research and study.

Occult ritual: There have been occult rituals performed that used similar instruments as a key component, that led to aspects of forgotten gods manifesting in the physical realm. This required sacrificing souls and overcharging the instruments, typically destroying them. This is perhaps one reason such masterworks of the Tyrnkerian Companions are rare. Gathered from the inner circles of secret societies and cults, Faustian bargains with demonic beings, listening to predictions of doom and the end days.

Experience
Traversing the electroplasmic pathways calculated by the Sextant has been described as turning a corner that's not there, walking through a reflection of the world, paper-thin, sharp, and vast.

Your focus and path towards this :

http://ascensionglossary.com/index.php/Universal_Laws

Was derailed by Todd and channeled into this :

http://ascensionglossary.com/index.php/Gog_and_Magog

The Matriarchal presence (Mother of God) of the female fell, ripping it’s presence from out of the earth body, and the False King of Tyranny archetype or Gog was replaced by the Controllersto rule the coming ages with the seeds of tyrannical Patriarchal Domination. The understanding is that at this moment in time within this particular historical lineage - the “Holy Spirit” was removed from its presence on the physical Earth plane, the last vestige of the embodied hierogamic “Kings and Queens” were removed completely from the Earth plane. TheChrist consciousness was distorted and digressed into the cross theology of the violent religions. The damage incurred by this rip, (split apart the masculine and feminine balance that had created neutral fields or "hierogamic spiritual marriage") resulted in another wall ( Frequency Fence) to be erected making it impossible for the higher Soulfrequency to connect into the physical matter vibration at this incarnation level.

At this time, The Matriarchal (Grail) Codes were stolen and some salvaged, and that was what was taken to Ireland, and hid underground in a series of portal systems. Ireland later became the spawn of what is known as the lineage of Magog (The seed of Anti-Christ in the Mitochondria) that then came further into power on the Earth, through the stolen feminine coding. The Magnum Opus of Alchemy was known, and the Magi line was corrupted to perform what was necessary without the “spirit” (i.e. feminine) intervention. The False King of Tyranny Gog, with the greed for power having possessed his body (as he had been stolen of his spirit, without knowing) made his “Faustian pact” with the “Devil”. Which as a metaphor means the love of power through stolen knowledge was bargained for by selling the Soul, selling out the divine human’s birthright became the massive collective forces of Gog and Magog. This act was a catalyst in the timelines that would change the direction of human evolution at a planetary scale. (approx. 3000-5000 years ago)

Ciel nearly always wears a black eye-patch made of gauze. with a single cord over his right eye to hide the location of his Faustian Contract with Sebastian Michaelis, but now that he has lost this butler of his, he is now on his own. However, while in disguise, he wears a white patch that resembles a transdermal patch, which fastens over his ear with two cords. Ciel also has a brand on the left side of his body from his time as a slave in a cult. Ciel wears two rings: one, which he wears on his left thumb, is an ornate silver piece that holds an emerald-cut deep blue sapphire. It is a one-of-a-kind family heirloom that had been passed down for generations. The other is a gold signet ring in the form of the Phantomhive crest. Ciel wears this on his right hand, and uses it to stamp the wax seal on documents. Upon his return, the seal was given to him by Angelina Dalles, who told him that it was the only ring that had not been destroyed in the fire that killed his parents.

Personality: Ciel was an arrogant and shrewd boy, with numerous exalted positions. He has tried to changed but As the Earl of the Phantomhive house and a distinguished nobleman, Ciel was very strict, proud, and was accustomed to a luxurious lifestyle, but now he has been through many lives and generations that he stays low a lot more. He also refuses to stay in a poor environment for long periods of time. Furthermore, Ciel has a relatively cold outlook on life. His main goal is for those who have betrayed him or have done his dirty to experience the same level of humiliation and suffering he did. During his time as a slave to cultists who tortured him cruelly, he was branded with a mark he absolutely does not want other people to see so he tried very hard to keep it hidden. Ciel possesses unwavering determination instead of falling into hopelessness, Ciel chooses to die without regrets by working hard to fulfill everything he wants to, despite his aunt's insistence that he should live a happier life.

He is merciless with his enemies, and does not hesitate to eradicate anyone that stands in his way. Ciel has post-traumatic stress disorder because of the abuse he went through and what he had to go through all throughout his life of living forever so far. He occasionally has flashbacks of traumatic events, and when he does, he would become completely unaware of his surroundings. Due to his horrific past, Ciel seldom smiles. He had once admitted that he has forgotten how to smile happily. Ciel does, however, show genuine concern for the wellbeing of those close to him. Although he usually presents himself as a solemn and mature person, Ciel can be rather childish at times. He is exceedingly competitive, a trait which he acknowledges himself. He is unsatisfied with draws, and refuses to quit until a victor is declared in any situation. Ciel is very fond of sweets and dislikes cats too.

Bio: Ciel was a regular child in the past who maintained a cheerful disposition. As a child, he suffered from poor health, being afflicted with asthma and cat allergies. He would often smile and play with his family along with Elizabeth, his fiancee and cousin. Elizabeth said that when his parents were alive, the Phantomhive Manor was full of smiles. On his tenth birthday, he was running through the manor when he came across his dead mother, father, and dog. He called for help and ran into Tanaka, who urged the young boy to flee. Before he could say more, however, Tanaka was attacked from behind by an unseen assailant who then grabbed Ciel. He was then sold, and his kidnappers commented that he is "rare" and worth more than two people. He was bought and branded by his new owners, giving him the mark of a "noble beast." He cried that he was hurt, dirty, and homesick. He was then chained in a cage while masked adults looked on and remarked about what a splendid evening they will have. Ciel sadly wondered why no one was there to help him. One of the masked adults then placed him on a table as a sacrifice, and he was stabbed while the rest looked on gleefully. In a desperate desire to kill all of his tormentors, Ciel somehow managed to summon Sebastian at this point. He appeared in his true demon form and told Ciel that what he had sacrificed will never return. Sebastian asked Ciel if he wanted to make a contract and have his wishes granted. Ciel declared that he wanted the power to take revenge on those who mistreated him. The cultists tried to stop him from talking, but Ciel and Sebastian forged their contract. Sebastian asked him where he wanted his seal, saying that the more visible it is, the stronger the contract is. Ciel told him that anywhere was fine and that he wants a power stronger that anyone else's; Sebastian called him greedy and decided to put it on his right eye, causing Ciel to scream in excruciating pain. He then commanded him to kill his attackers; Sebastian then burnt down the building. Finally, Ciel stated his absolute orders: Sebastian must protect and never betray him, to obey his orders no matter what, and to never lie to him. Ciel and Sebastian had been together for a while now and Ciel has went through a lot by now and After a horrible incident that had happened involving Ciel and Sebastian, Cile was turned into a demon and Never saw Sebastian after this. He has now gained much more abilities as he spent more time being a demon and he now is extremely powerful.

https://plus.google.com/107923306851782450678 OnlineMatureDating.com : An Interview with the Advocates of the Major Mouse Testing Program Team: By way of following on from...
An Interview with the Advocates of the Major Mouse Testing Program Team: By way of following on from today's AMA over at /r/futurology, I recently had the chance to ask a few questions of the Major Mouse Testing Program (MMTP) volunteers, a mix of scientists and advocates who aim to do their part to speed up progress towards effective treatments for the causes of aging. The group formed six months ago or so, and are presently seeking funds for their first mouse studies through crowdfunding with the Lifespan.io organization. The initial focus is on senolytic treatments capable of removing senescent cells from old tissues. Growth in the number of these dysfunction cells is a contributing cause of degenerative aging, involved in the progression and pathology all of the common age-related diseases. A growing body of evidence supports the outright removal approach, but there is - as ever in the aging research field - a paucity of funding and always the need for more and better animal data in order to pull in other players with deep pockets. At this stage in the progression from laboratory to clinic, all such efforts are important work, and I'm pleased to have been able to contribute to this Major Mouse Testing Program fundraiser. How did the Major Mouse Testing Program come about? How did you meet and what made you decide to undertake this particular project? Elena: I have been collaborating with the International Longevity Alliance (ILA) for about 3 years. It is an international non-for-profit organization with the head office in Paris, our goal is to support innovative biomedical technologies to address aging. At the beginning, the core team had a lot of discussions with other pro-longevity organizations and with the scientific community to identify the bottlenecks that impede the development of the technologies to slow down, postpone and reverse age-related damage to health. And we learned that one of the barriers was the deficiency in robust animal trials for a long list of promising interventions. Then one of the Founding Board Members, Edouard Debonneuil, came in with the idea that the ILA could start its own fundraising project to support this kind of research. This is how MMTP was started. Steve: I learned about the MMTP project via the International Longevity Alliance. They had a number of projects ranging from lobbying, advocacy to research, for me the research appealed as I wanted to get my hands dirty and get as close to the frontline as possible. MMTP is a mixture of advocacy and actual research so for me it was a good combination. The research is focused on speeding up progress in rejuvenation medicine so I felt it was important to get involved with this kind of project. Paul: I learned about the MMTP project from Steve. He had just started working on the project, We knew each other quite well and had a good rapport, and he thought I'd be a good fit for the group. I wasn't initially keen to join the group, I didn't appreciate the work that animal researchers do, like a lot of people I guess I didn't appreciate why animal data is so important for developing new drugs and therapies. The more I learned about the project, the more I realised how vital the work was! My skillset seemed to fit the needs of the group so I decided to commit to the group. The world would be a better place if everyone pitched in to move research forward. Why don't they? What are the challenges in doing this? Elena: You would be surprised but there is a lot of studies in sociology that answer this question. As I am going to make my PhD in this field, I read a lot and I combine my own experience in longevity promotion with scientific evidence. So far, we know, that if you ask a person to choose a desirable lifespan, he or she will only add about 10 years to the mean life expectancy in any given country. But if you ask, if people would like to live longer while also remaining youthful and healthy, at least 30% will consent to live much longer or even indefinitely. Many people show more interest after being provided with the data from animal studies - which look fantastic today, with mice lifespan extended twofold. Another important thing to keep in mind is that the perception of the innovation depends very much on its end use. People are keener to support a new and even experimental treatment for a severe disease, but often refuse to accept it in case it is used for life extension. Which basically means, that before promoting life extension technologies, we have to explain that aging is a root cause of severe age-related diseases, that aging itself is very similar to a disease, even if we don't call it so. If people can see how deteriorating aging processes are for their health, they will understand that it is only right to develop the means to protect people from its consequences. Cancer and diabetes are two of the most horrible consequences of aging, and I have not yet met someone who would say no to the development of a cure against cancer or diabetes. This is how powerful the admission of a serious problem can be. Last but not least, we should not avoid talking about the prejudices and concerns that people have towards personal and social implications of longevity technologies. It is only reasonable that they want to make informed decisions. In our case, to be properly informed means to have some information outside the field of medicine. So we should share evidence-based data and expert foresight in demography, economy, ethics, ecology, law and other sciences on request, as in our case this is what can significantly influence public perception - and will also influence adherence to longevity therapies in the future. So, to get more supporters we seem to have a lot of educating to do. Paul: Yes it would be truly amazing if more folk who declared an interest in this kind of research, actually played an active role in ensuring that it manifests itself as something people can go to a clinic and receive, rather than just daydreaming about it! But people are inclined to be either overly optimistic, or the complete opposite. Some don't believe this will ever amount to anything, so they see no value in joining the fight, and that is what this is. The other extreme, believe that it will happen whether they do anything or not, so why bother? They just sit around complaining about the lack of progress, while looking at exponential technology graphs, occasionally muttering "Are we there yet?" So the main challenge is to make people realise that this will not happen, if it is not made to happen. And if folks want this soon, it is in their best interests to pitch in and help get the job done. You've been gearing up for your first fundraiser for a few months now; now that you're launched, what are the details? Steve: We launched our fundraising campaign on lifespan.io with an ideal goal of $60,000 in order to initiate a robust scientific study. We will scale the experiment based on the funds we raise so no matter what, we will be making progress. Elena: It is important to mention, that if we raise a little more, we will be able to do even more tests and so improve our data on health changes in our mice. Once you have the funds in hand and are embarked on making mice live longer, what is next for the Major Mouse team? Steve: Given the expertise of our researcher, we are very interested in moving into stem cell therapy for longevity. This could be very exciting as we plan to potentially combine senolytics with stem cell therapy. Imagine, first we remove the bad cells from the body, second - we stimulate the regeneration and replenish lost stem cells. This is one reason why our current study not only focuses on lifespan but our secondary goal is to closely examine the effect of senolytics on resident stem cell populations, this information will guide how we approach combining the two therapies. Where do you see this field of rejuvenation research going over the next few years? Steve: Stem cells are certainly shaping up to be a big player, CRISPR and gene therapy likewise. Senolytics has attracted a great deal of interest of late too though we need to robustly test this to ensure it is a viable path to longevity. There are a number of "camps" in the research community, the bulk seem to favour tinkering with the metabolism far downstream of the problems, another is the engineering strategy of SENS and the third is the hotly debated telomerase camp. I think the most important thing at this point is to get the research underway, start answering the unanswered questions and work out what the best approaches are. Personally I see little value in messing with metabolism far downstream but which of the other two camps is right could be some of column A and some of column B. I am not married to either idea which is why we will test these things robustly and find out what works. It would be very poor science indeed if we made a conclusion and then cherry picked our results to support them, no we will research thoroughly and we will go where the data leads! Elena: If anyone is expecting a universal pill against aging in the next 10 years, I don't believe this is going to happen. If you look at animal data, combine what they are treated with, then you can imagine, what a complex of anti-aging interventions is today. So far the approach to slow down and reverse aging includes drugs, senolytics, vaccines, cell therapies, gene therapies, organ regeneration in situ and of course lifestyle measures. In future, we will learn to combine several types of interventions in one procedure, and maybe we will wear a rechargeable bracelet able to inject a mix of longevity drugs directly into our bodies on demand, maybe several times a month. To repair a damaged organ we will have to undergo an injection of stem cells into that organ, which would supplant some of the more invasive interventions. By the way, this is what is already happening: an ongoing study in Melbourne, Australia, shows amazing results in joint repair in situ, on humans, using stem cell therapy. Paul: Now that's a question! Things are moving so fast, every week there seem to be announcements, news about CRISPR and stem cells. These are two of the fastest moving areas of research. Those two and Senolytics, this is another rapidly accelerating area of research. Senolytics should help clear the senescent cells, and that will set the stage for recovery or rejuvenation. This is where things like stem cells come in. I know we would like to take our research into combination therapies, either combinations of the same therapies, involving multiple senolytics for example, or combinations of complementary therapies such as Senolytics and stem cells. Funding is, obviously, ever the battle in the sciences, and especially aging. How can we change this for the better? Elena: There are several ways for a scientific group to get funded. There is already settled state funding for the research - in this case, our goal is to make a state research institution more interested in investigating aging and longevity. There is an additional source - the grants. This is what most of gerontologists try to obtain, but this form of support has its own limitations: the paperwork can take too much time, there are some inconvenient regulations of spendings timeline, we hear many groups complaining about that. Crowdfunding is much more attractive in this regards. We don't ask for excessive amount of papers, only a decent experiment protocol and a reasonable estimate, making clear the amount of such expenditures as the substances to test, the mice and their housing, and everything necessary to obtain the data on health changes. The contract between the ILA and the research institution guarantees the observation of the study design and volume. Apart from that, we let the scientific groups do their work without unnecessary distraction. Luckily, the cost of such experiments is from 60 to 100 thousand, so it can be acquired by crowdfunding. And while it is not so easy to influence state funds allocation, in MMTP we let general public influence the progress in biomedical sciences directly. Paul: I think we need to educate interested parties at all levels, about the need to get this work done. About the potential, not only in terms of human lives and suffering that can be saved, but the enormous cost savings that could be potentially had too, by investing in preventative and rejuvenation therapies. Health providing organisations worldwide are creaking under the financial burden of established medicine, a model that offers increasing periods of decrepitude, in exchange for ever increasing amounts of money. This faustian bargain offers a very poor return on investment and simply cannot continue much longer. So advocacy and education are two of our biggest weapons going forward. We also need to foster a change in governmental policies worldwide! The ILA has already made a start, by approaching bodies like the World Health Organization (WHO), which themselves see a need for change. By the way, WHO recently held a Consultation on Global Strategy and Action Plan on Ageing and Health, where the need for more research on aging and longevity was discussed. About the Team Members Steve: Project lead for MMTP and a longevity advocate, whose energy and devotion is inspiring the team. Elena: Project coordinator and fundraiser, Elena is involved in project management and community outreach to donors. Paul: Social media manager and writer, Paul is an important part of our promotion team. #senior #mature
An Interview with the Advocates of the Major Mouse Testing Program Team
By way of following on from today's AMA over at /r/futurology, I recently had the chance to ask a few questions of the Major Mouse Testing Program (MMTP) volunteers, a mix of scientists and advocates who aim to do their part to speed up progress towards effective treatments for the causes of aging. The group formed six months ago or so, and are presently seeking funds for their first mouse...

This is baloney, at least in relation to the kinds of algorithms we’re talking about here (neural networks are a different story). Any algorithm that has to make choices has criteria that are specified by its designers. And those criteria are expressions of human values. Engineers may think they are “neutral”, but long experience has shown us they are babes in the woods of politics, economics and ideology. If Facebook wants to become a conduit for news, then it has to recognise that it has moved into a different sphere and has acquired new responsibilities. And the publishers who suck up to it should remember Churchill’s definition of appeasement: it’s the process of being nice to a crocodile in the hope that it will eat you last.

In doing so, they have entered into a truly Faustian bargain. Because while publishers can without difficulty ship their stuff to Instant Articles, they cannot control which ones Facebook users actually get to see. This is because users’ news feeds are determined by Facebook’s machine-learning algorithms that try to guess what each user would like to see (and what might dispose them to click on an advertisement). So once the content disappears into Facebook’s algorithmic maw it becomes mere fodder for its calculations.

[Name]: Alois Trancy
[AKA]: Your Highness
[Nicknames]: Bluebell, Little Bluebell

❥ G E N E R A L
[Age]: 14
[Gender]: Male
[School/Job]: Earl of Trancy
[Height]: 165 cm (5'5")
[Birthdate]: November 5, 1875
[Zodiac]: Scorpio

❥ H I S T O R Y
[Bio]: The unofficial story is that shortly after he was born, Alois was kidnapped. His mother, in her deep grief, committed suicide and left his father to search for him alone.

Alois claimed that he was kept as a slave in an unknown village during his time abducted. An event, which occurred within the village, left all the villagers dead and Alois as the only survivor. Alois returned with Claude Faustus and became the head of the Trancy household after his father died under mysterious circumstances.

Later, however, Alois experienced a flashback about his actual past as Jim Macken. As orphans from a village, he and his little brother Luka had been treated unkindly by the villagers ever since their parents died, which forced them to survive as thieves and pickpockets. Jim expressed a bitter hatred of the villagers, and declared that everyone who was cruel to them ought to die.

When a mysterious calamity swept the village and killed nearly everyone, including Luka, Jim was taken in by the head of the Trancy estate for the purpose of pedophilia along with a group of other boys. While in captivity, Jim had heard rumours about a fairy that granted wishes; after following the instructions given to him, he summoned the spider demon Claude. Upon realizing that he had no wish to fulfill, Claude told Jim to call for him again when he finds a wish.

Although Earl Trancy originally despised him because of his "filthy" eyes, Jim set about seducing him and quickly became his favourite bed-mate and subsequent heir. Jim, parading from then on as Alois Trancy, received favourable treatment such as fashionable clothes and more freedom in the mansion.

Not knowing that it was actually Hannah, Alois discovered that the person responsible for the strange deaths in the village was Sebastian Michaelis during his Faustian contract before Ciel Phantomhive. Alois formed a contract with Claude, vowing revenge on Sebastian. When Earl Trancy died, Alois became the new earl and released all the captive boys.

❥ P E R S O N A L
[Personality]: Alois is a generally cheerful but sadistic individual. His emotions can alternate unpredictably from enthusiasm to anger. He also loses interest in things fairly quickly. Alois often uses harsh and impolite language such as "bloody" or other expletives, regardless of whom he is speaking to

One of Alois's few consistent traits is his attachment to his butler Claude Faustus, whose attention he constantly tries to attract. He showcases an extreme need for affection and acknowledgement.

Alois enjoys wielding authority, and typically utilizes his power in a deliberately vicious, barbarous, and contemptuous manner. He frequently abuses others and makes them feel inferior for his own gratification. Alois directs his hostility particularly toward Hannah Anafeloz, by lashing out physically and belittling her with vile remarks, especially when he believes that she is trying to take someone else's attention away from him.

Name: sebastian michaelis

Species:
Demon

Gender:
Male

Height:
185 cm (6'1")

Affiliation:
Faustian Contract

*Occupation: *
Butler of the Phantomhive Household

Previous Occupation:
Second-String Member of the Noah's Ark Circus
Dormitory Warden of Sapphire Owl at Weston College

Base of Operations:
Phantomhive Manor,
London

Status : Alive


Appearance:

Sebastian takes on the appearance of a tall, handsome adult with black hair, red eyes, and pale skin. He typically dresses in a butler's outfit, which consists of black trousers, a six-button double-breasted tailcoat, and a gray vest. He has the Phantomhive crest on his shirt cuffs and tie. Sebastian also sports white gloves, a pocket watch, and a chained silver lapel pin bearing the Phantomhive crest, traditionally worn by the house's head butler.

Sebastian, notably, has black fingernails. The back of his left hand contains the mark of his Faustian contract with Ciel Phantomhive.

Details of Sebastian's demonic form include high-heeled stiletto boots, sharp claws, glowing fuchsia irises, slit pupils, and longer, sharper teeth, with dark wings.

Personality:

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.[5] One of his quirks is that he will always respond to Ciel's demands with the saying "Yes, my lord."

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.
He thinks of his own master as a brat who treats his workers rudely, but he has admitted that he does not dislike the butler lifestyle despite all the troubles he goes through on a daily basis.

Sebastian views money as "rubbish" and "materialistic."He is fluent in French and Latin, enough to teach the latter. He is also proficient in Deutsch (German) and East Franconian, a dialect in Southern Germany. Sebastian has a great and mutual distaste for Grim Reapers. Moreover, he profoundly adores cats and had kept at least thirteen hidden in his wardrobe to prevent Ciel from finding out.

Sebastian often contemplates the behaviors and attitudes of human beings. He regards humans in general to be "difficult creatures," but he is fascinated with their struggles and lofty goals. He is intrigued by how seemingly insatiable they are, for they are willing to "drag others down to get what they want, even in death."Furthermore, he is often puzzled by human behavior as demonstrated by humans’ excessive love for sweet things such as cake—personally, he doesn’t find it delicious. Finally, Sebastian has seen humans (such as Agni) bring out enormous strength from within. However, he states this is something a demon can never obtain—strength and power bred from love and faith.

history:
Sebastian's real home is in an alternate world that is quite different from the human world. In particular, he mentioned that the creatures kept as pets there are in no way comparable to cats. Sebastian had briefly remarked that he met an ancient Egyptian mummy when it was alive, identified as Smenkhkare who reigned about three thousand years ago. He was also a guest at the Schönbrunn Palace from time to time. He also claims to be responsible for the spread of the Black Death that occurred five hundred years prior. In short, he muses that Ciel Phantomhive's life in comparison would feel like an instant.

Sebastian stated that in the past, he engaged in "messily sampling every dish available," and he has since resorted to only consuming "high-quality" souls. As a result, he has been apparently starving, but he declared that the "dinner" will be much better the hungrier he is.

Three years ago, he was summoned to Ciel Phantomhive when the latter was about to be sacrificed in an occult ritual. After forming the contract with Ciel and placing the seal on his right eye, Ciel ordered him to slay his abductors. Sebastian decided to adopt a "role that is best fit to serve an Earl." Therefore, he assumed the form of a butler until Ciel completes his personal mission of revenge—that is the substance of their contract. In return, Sebastian will receive Ciel's soul. He was then given the name "Sebastian" by Ciel (which used to be his dog's name) for the duration of his duties as Ciel's butler.

Once he finished annihilating the cultists, they went to the Royal London Hospital to meet with Ciel's aunt, Angelina Dalles. There, Tanaka gave him a watch that had been passed down from one Phantomhive butler to the next. After that, Angelina arranged for a carriage to bring them to the ruins of the Phantomhive Manor. While Ciel was mourning the deaths of his parents, Sebastian reconstructed the manor.

Ciel and Sebastian then began daily life. He taught Ciel the fundamentals of being an earl; Ciel in turn taught him how a butler fit for the Phantomhive household should act. Sebastian also learned how to properly cope with Ciel's spoiled behavior; from time to time, he had to discipline Ciel. He later attended Ciel's coronation as the Earl of Phantomhive, but he did not observe at a close distance because he saw himself as a mere butler, not family. While they were walking, Sebastian asked Ciel if he was happy with how things were. Seeing Ciel's hesitation, he attempted to devour him. He stopped, however, when Ciel suddenly turned around and stated that he was determined to attain his revenge. He commanded Sebastian to be his sword and shield and bring him victory. Sebastian complied, as he was sure that Ciel's soul would be extremely delicious.

Sometime during the same year, Sebastian was summoned to Ciel's room. Ciel complained of a wobbly tooth that was preventing him from eating his food properly. After examining it, Sebastian decided to forcibly take it out, much to Ciel's chagrin. Ciel attempted to protest against the idea, but Sebastian proceeded regardless, under the impression that he was doing his young master a favor. After the tooth removal, Ciel threw an angry fit at Sebastian. Ever since, he has been unwilling to allow Sebastian to check for cavities in his teeth when they start to wobble.

Appearance: Ciel is a short, thirteen-year-old boy with bluish-black hair and rich, deep blue eyes. As described by Nina Hopkins, his tailor, Ciel has a "wonderfully proportioned body." His arms and legs are thin, his shoulders slim, and his waist narrow. Ciel typically dresses in a way that suits his noble standing, and he has a very extensive wardrobe. Ciel nearly always wears a black eye-patch made of gauze. with a single cord over his right eye to hide the location of his Faustian Contract with Sebastian Michaelis, but now that he has lost this butler of his, he is now on his own. However, while in disguise, he wears a white patch that resembles a transdermal patch, which fastens over his ear with two cords. Ciel also has a brand on the left side of his body from his time as a slave in a cult. Ciel wears two rings: one, which he wears on his left thumb, is an ornate silver piece that holds an emerald-cut deep blue sapphire. It is a one-of-a-kind family heirloom that had been passed down for generations. The other is a gold signet ring in the form of the Phantomhive crest. Ciel wears this on his right hand, and uses it to stamp the wax seal on documents. Upon his return, the seal was given to him by Angelina Dalles, who told him that it was the only ring that had not been destroyed in the fire that killed his parents.

Personality: Ciel was an arrogant and shrewd boy, with numerous exalted positions. He has tried to changed but As the Earl of the Phantomhive house and a distinguished nobleman, Ciel was very strict, proud, and was accustomed to a luxurious lifestyle, but now he has been through many lives and generations that he stays low a lot more. He also refuses to stay in a poor environment for long periods of time. Furthermore, Ciel has a relatively cold outlook on life. His main goal is for those who have betrayed him or have done his dirty to experience the same level of humiliation and suffering he did. During his time as a slave to cultists who tortured him cruelly, he was branded with a mark he absolutely does not want other people to see so he tried very hard to keep it hidden. Ciel possesses unwavering determination instead of falling into hopelessness, Ciel chooses to die without regrets by working hard to fulfill everything he wants to, despite his aunt's insistence that he should live a happier life. He often compares predicaments to games such as chess, and is willing to gamble with his life on the line to win them. Ciel possesses business acumen and impressive keenness in management affairs. Cunning and artful, he successfully administers sister Funtom Corporation simultaneously. His greed is described as "knowing no boundaries". He is merciless with his enemies, and does not hesitate to eradicate anyone that stands in his way. Ciel has post-traumatic stress disorder because of the abuse he went through and what he had to go through all throughout his life of living forever so far. He occasionally has flashbacks of traumatic events, and when he does, he would become completely unaware of his surroundings. Due to his horrific past, Ciel seldom smiles. He had once admitted that he has forgotten how to smile happily. Ciel does, however, show genuine concern for the wellbeing of those close to him. Although he usually presents himself as a solemn and mature person, Ciel can be rather childish at times. He is exceedingly competitive, a trait which he acknowledges himself. He is unsatisfied with draws, and refuses to quit until a victor is declared in any situation. Ciel is very fond of sweets and dislikes cats too.

Bio: Ciel was a regular child in the past who maintained a cheerful disposition. As a child, he suffered from poor health, being afflicted with asthma and cat allergies. He would often smile and play with his family along with Elizabeth, his fiancee and cousin. Elizabeth said that when his parents were alive, the Phantomhive Manor was full of smiles. On his tenth birthday, he was running through the manor when he came across his dead mother, father, and dog. He called for help and ran into Tanaka, who urged the young boy to flee. Before he could say more, however, Tanaka was attacked from behind by an unseen assailant who then grabbed Ciel. He was then sold, and his kidnappers commented that he is "rare" and worth more than two people. He was bought and branded by his new owners, giving him the mark of a "noble beast." He cried that he was hurt, dirty, and homesick. He was then chained in a cage while masked adults looked on and remarked about what a splendid evening they will have. Ciel sadly wondered why no one was there to help him. One of the masked adults then placed him on a table as a sacrifice, and he was stabbed while the rest looked on gleefully. In a desperate desire to kill all of his tormentors, Ciel somehow managed to summon Sebastian at this point. He appeared in his true demon form and told Ciel that what he had sacrificed will never return. Sebastian asked Ciel if he wanted to make a contract and have his wishes granted. Ciel declared that he wanted the power to take revenge on those who mistreated him. The cultists tried to stop him from talking, but Ciel and Sebastian forged their contract. Sebastian asked him where he wanted his seal, saying that the more visible it is, the stronger the contract is. Ciel told him that anywhere was fine and that he wants a power stronger that anyone else's; Sebastian called him greedy and decided to put it on his right eye, causing Ciel to scream in excruciating pain. He then commanded him to kill his attackers; Sebastian then burnt down the building. Finally, Ciel stated his absolute orders: Sebastian must protect and never betray him, to obey his orders no matter what, and to never lie to him. Ciel and Sebastian had been together for a while now and Ciel has went through a lot by now and After a horrible incident that had happened involving Ciel and Sebastian, Cile was turned into a demon and Never saw Sebastian after this. He has now gained much more abilities as he spent more time being a demon and he now is extremely powerful.
