Undertaker’s View on Symbolism

Just another headcannon that won’t stop bugging me.

Based on the memory chain, we assume Claudia meant something to Undertaker. Since we know nothing about her, I’m assuming that she was a strong women who inspired something love or otherwise obsession from Undertaker based on her attributes (fearlessness, bravery, intelligence, position, etc.) 

We also don’t know how she died but according to this headcannon I believe it was under the queen’s order.  For a mission, or possibly a false charge to bring her to death. Undertaker unable to cope with her death or reasoning why the monarch would kill someone who in his eyes was innocent, he views Claudia as  Christlike figure.

From the picture above, I’ll assume this symbolizes Claudia since it features white roses (a metaphor for the Phantomhive family). To add, there is a crown of thorns adorning it. 

To keep with the Christ symbolism, I believe Undertaker uses Claudia as a Christ figure who was “crucified” for unjust reasons and will bring her back. “To what God refuses” or something like that.  Since he is a Death God, he fills the role as God.Thus, a potential explanation for the bizarre dolls.

I don’t know what his relation to the other lockets are. Maybe the only “apostles” he could gather hair from? Possibly two of them could have been killed with her to symbolize the criminals crucified next to Christ, or the criminals were her targets who she killed shortly before her death.

Again, this might not be the truth at all but what do you guys think about it?

The righteousness based on faith says, “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’” (that is, to bring Christ down) “or 'Who will descend into the abyss?’” (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead). But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith that we proclaim); because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
