Updated: May 10, 2019 Ciel Phantomhive is a character in the anime and manga series Kuroshitsuji or Black Butler. Ciel's parents died in a house fire a few years ago; ever since, he doesn't smile unless necessary. He is head of the Phantomhive, an English noble family. Want to act like Ciel? Start with step one, below.


  1. Lessen your smiles and laughter. This is the single most important step. Even before you get to characteristics, remember: you can laugh as much as you want over a joke by yourself in a quiet place, in your own mind, or at home, but when a person tells you a joke, or something funny or joyful, don't smile or laugh. (Although, an evil smile can make you look mysterious) Be nice; express your emotions by your words and not by your facial expression.
  2. Be classy. Ciel is an English noble, who must succumb to a higher standard of manners. Just keep it classy. "Please" and "thank you" are always a must.
  3. Look androgynous. Honestly, Ciel could be cast as a boy or a girl. Nothing makes him distinctly one gender (and in one episode he wore a dress to sneak into a party). The haircut also plays a factor in his androgynous appearance.
  4. Be intelligent. Ciel is very smart for a twelve/ thirteen-year-old. He has to be in order to be the president of "Funtom" and solve crimes for the queen. First of all, read attentively. Nonfiction is even better. Second, pay attention in school and try to expand your education whenever possible. You never know when you will need your knowledge to apply to the current situation.
  5. Ensure you are always well groomed and looking your best before you appear in public. This means that you need to shower daily. Wear deodorant and wash your face daily. When picking out your clothing for the day, know what looks good on you.
  6. Choose any color of clothing. Keep most colors dull and neutral. Save anything brighter for special occasions. Black is not necessary. Ciel normally wears a green blazer with matching shorts. On special occasions, he wears a dark blue shorts-suit with a ruffled shirt and a matching top hat.
  7. Try to use elegant, high quality materials in your wardrobe - satins, silks, velvets, taffetas, and Venetian lace are all extremely beautiful and are some of the most commonly-worn fabrics by nobles in 19th-century England.
  8. Be independent. You must be courteous, but never bend over backwards to please others. Limit your time and availability and draw boundaries with others so that they are aware of your limits. Ciel is very aware of his limits but never lets anyone else remind him.
  9. Dress in a Gothic fashion. Ciel has a somewhat Gothic style, like his skull cane and pendant. He is into more subtle colors; black, blue, green, and grey-red are normally associated with goth. His style is mostly 'classy goth' or 'kodona/boy lolita', so those are ones to look up.
  10. Don't overreact. Not ever, even if something happens to be funny to others; just watch them laugh and insult them under your breath. When something is surprising, pretend that you already knew about it.
  11. Read up on current issues and events in the newspaper and other legitimate sources. As an earl in the 19th century, Ciel has to be aware of current events.
  12. Correct people often and/or talk back if somebody tells you that you can't do something or you're too weak.


  • Dress maturely, and shop for clothes that are for older youth. Do not buy sizes that are way too tight for you, or which are baggy. It is unappealing. Wear colours that suit you; red, purple, etc. You can buy mature clothes at XXI, Armani Exchange, etc.
  • If you're not sure about the proper etiquette for a particular situation, notice what others are doing and follow suit. Then make a point to look it up in an etiquette guide when you have a chance.
  • Be in control of what you are doing. If you cannot handle talking to a person while doing something, stop what you are doing, because it might go wrong.
  • Looking androgynous isn't necessarily the same as cross-dressing. You can include some aspects attributed to your sex and still look androgynous. For example, a girl who dresses like a guy, but also paints their nails can look more androgynous than a girl who just dresses like a guy. More often than not, it's a matter of defying expectations.
  • Ciel also enjoys reading Edgar Allen Poe, so read some of his works.


  • Maybe you want to try out this "new personality" to play hard to get with everybody. Perhaps you believe if you sit there with a blank face and look lonely, a kind, good-looking girl or a friendly guy will come over and offer their friendship to you. Be prepared to think again, for it is highly likely you will instead be avoided.
  • If you can handle all this, if you are fully prepared to live a lonely school/work life, then by all means, follow these steps. If not, if you really are just trying to be "harder to get", you might end up just making the situation worse. Think about and consider this before trying out the "new you" tomorrow.
  • If you wear the eye patch, everyone will stare.
  • You did not sell your soul to a demon, Sebastian is not your butler/bodyguard so don't call him when you're in trouble.
