So I’ve read a theory from crow-ling and her-majestys-watchdog and I’ve decided to add my own to it. You can find crow-ling’s post here and her-majestys-watchdog here. I’m nt sure if it’s been done yet, so I’ll be discussing chapter 95.
In Chapter 95 we see Ciel talking to another version of him. When he mentions that our!Ciel didn’t have to take up revenge and our!Ciel said he knew that and then we get this:
That right there makes me wonder just what happened during the time our!ciel was taken. Did our!Ciel betray him? Or did he sacrifice himself to save our!Ciel and Ciel felt guilt for his older brother saving him?
We’re gonna jump to chapter 61 real quick
right here we see Ciel in a cage and then getting brutally murdered. Which leads us here:
We have Ciel in a cage and one covered in blood. Our!Ciel is obviously the one in the cage and the other one is the one on the right. Now when we get to this scene, there were three questions that was asked to our!Ciel to our Ciel that stood out the most to me.
Something happened the day Sebastian was summoned. Something between them. As I said earlier, our!Ciel could have betrayed the real!ciel or his brother was taken when it should have been him.
As we all know, our!Ciel was the sick one. And every time he got ill around someone who knew him he hid it. When he took his brother’s name it meant he couldn’t be weak anymore.
Our!Ciel was the sick and frail one, and more than likely didn’t get much because he was probably the youngest. The moment he took his brother’s name, he took everything that came along with it. The things he probably only dreamed about when he was younger.
Which leads us back to chapter 61- Our!Ciel took his name and gave it to Sebastian, he also said this:
Our!Ciel wouldn’t have inherited anything if his brother was still alive. And if he gave his real name, there’s a possibility people would fight him for not only being so young inheriting the Phatomhive estate and company, but also very weak.
A lot of people don’t think this theory could work when to be honest, it already is.
