Something has been bother me about Baron Kelvin. (Well a lot about him bothered me, but there is one thing I wanted to focus on.) He was obsessed with Vincent and real!Ciel - and his focus appeared to be mainly on the oldest twin. Although he was at the party and saw there were identical twin boys, he was focused only on real!Ciel. This is most likely due to the fact that our!Ciel was shyer and was described as having fragile health. I discussed this with with @abybweisse the other day, and we both agreed Kelvin was only interested in real!Ciel. In fact, it’s not clear if he even knew if both boys were kidnapped and being held by the cult. His focus was on real!Ciel.
This leads to something interesting. Kelvin went through great pains to recreate the ceremony. In fact, it’s often been questioned by the fandom how he knew so much. Someone who wasn’t there that particular night must have given him information or he had seen it some time in the past. What is interesting, however, is that while trying to perfectly replicate the scenario, he didn’t try to ‘create’ a twin.
He could have dressed up a child to look like our!Ciel or even made some sort of dummy. If he had any idea that both boys were being held by the cult, it seems like he would have thought that this could have affected either one. He wants this Ciel to be back in the same state of mind, but yet he never thought about the fact his brother might have been a factor in his mental state. Kelvin believed that it was real!Ciel who had been kidnapped by the cult, had escaped, and was now standing before him.
Could this be how a lot of people saw the twins? I think both were loved by their family, but could other people have seen them as Ciel and Ciel’s brother?
