Some of the worst things Ciel has done to people
Everyone knows that Ciel isn’t exactly a good person, yet I often overlook what awful things he has actually done! So it seemed like an interesting idea to compile them all for reference.
NOTE: It goes without saying that Ciel is a young teen who is being manipulated by a demon and has a lot of mental health issues to boot - so his actions are hardly “evil” but highly complex. Ciel also feels remorse for many things and does have a moral compass even if he chooses to ignore it. However, that is not the focus of this post so I will not be exploring that.
In order of least to most offensive:
Insulting Agni (right before he died)
Ciel was clearly broken up over Agni’s death and couldn’t have known he was going to die, but that doesn’t make his harsh dismissal of Agni’s words any less cruel - especially since Agni was more than justified in his complaint to Ciel.
Removing “Colett” from Weston College simply to take their place
We don’t know what Sebastian did to ensure Ciel gained a place at Weston College, but it probably wasn’t anything good. This is pretty minor in comparison to the other things Ciel has done (and it’s hard to care since we didn’t even see it happen) but it’s still pretty bad!
Threatening Sieglinde with her life
Even if he was never intending to follow through it’s undeniably harsh to threaten an 11 year old with a gun; it was hardly the only solution.
