Soma Understands Sebastian’s Nature?
Soma has always been afraid of Sebastian, and he’s one of the few characters to have this reaction. Most seem him as charming and the epitome of the perfect butler, but Soma is one of the exceptions. He makes this clear in chapter 126.
What’s interesting is that it seems like Soma seems to have a better grasp on Sebastian’s nature than most people.
Could Soma simply be better at reading people and seeing their true nature? After all, he rescued Agni, whom most people thought was dangerous and bad.
Perhaps Soma’s awareness here is because of Agni. Soma says Sebastian should take lessons from Agni, so perhaps because Soma truly has a wonderful, caring butler, he can see that Sebastian is different. He can see that Sebastian is cold where almost everyone else finds him charming.
There’s also a certain irony in Soma saying that with Sebastian by Ciel’s side, Ciel will be lucky to be saved at all. He knows that Sebastian is dangerous to Ciel, even though it’s doubtful he has any idea to what extent.
