Okay, so who’s the person who contracted a demon to give the Kuroverse all kinda of modern technology? I’m so hoping it will be revealed to be Claudia, and at least there’s one bit of hope for that idea:
–Othello was on the scene 50 years ago (when Claudia would’ve been around 9.)
–Othello thinks he’s seen someone like Ciel before. (And Ciel’s been mistaken for a girl before.)
–Ciel and Claudia have the same color hair.
As for why Claudia would contract with a demon to create technology to extend human life, who knows.
And who the hell is this demon and where is it. And what does this have to do with an impending world war.
(Or maybe it really is UT all along, and he scrapped the Bizarre Dolls for this whole use-demons-for-advanced-technology-to-keep-people-alive thing as his Plan B and he contracted a demon for the lulz. Plot twist: shinigami can contract with demons.)
