Ciel Phantomhive was revealed to have had a dead twin brother this whole time. That’s right, the beloved 2 Ciels Theory is canon! But what’s even more surprising is that Ciel’s brother was the real Ciel Phantomhive. Our Ciel took his brother’s name!
According to Yen Press’s official website, chapter 127 will reveal our Ciel’s real name. Luckily for us, YP was kind enough to share Ciel’s real name on their site- the Earl of Phantomhive, who we’ve followed since chapter 1 of Black Butler is actually named:
“We thought a long time about what name the earl should have. It had to be something dignified, elegant, and true to his character. We brainstormed for a long time before we both decided what name would suit him best. We really couldn’t have asked for a better name… ‘Merde’ is just so coldly beautiful and fitting.” - Editor K (source)
