((Some stuff about Francis and his turning:
▫His creator thought he killed him, but he didn’t– Francis was just unconscious. My personal lore hc is that if vampires don’t kill their human victims and the humans are mortal (not like nation personifications), their human victims become vampires themselves. And that’s why Fran is here today.
▫Francis came across a fawn shortly after he woke up all alone from his turning. Newly turned vampires can’t control their hunger, so their bloodlust is pretty intense for a few days. Francis pounced on it and sucked it dry. When he realized that he’d killed a small innocent creature, he couldn’t stop crying. He didn’t forgive himself for it for a long time.
▫Francis hid out at @ask-mage-arthur’s cottage for a few days while the villagers were looking for Francis. They never found his body, so he was presumed dead. His father, already in a weakened state, died shortly afterward, never knowing what happened to his oldest son. Francis’ little sister Lucille didn’t give up so easily. She spent years looking for him, and she eventually came to the conclusion that Francis may have become a vampire and that’s why they never found his body. Even so, she moved to a city and her search for her brother died down. She told plenty of stories about her supposed vampire brother to her kids and her grandkids, but died without ever finding him.
▫Francis’ supposed death is what triggered a ginormous man hunt against Francis’ creator, whom I’ve decided to call Raphael. He was captured, held prisoner at the village, then burned at the stake. All of his servants needed a new leader, and Francis was the last vampire he turned. So they all started to follow him. Raphael left behind a castle, but it was poorly maintained. Francis spent years restoring it to it’s full glory and adding his own personal flair.))
Hi there! I'm new to the Black Butler fandom and this Two Ciels Theory (and its confirmation) are just amazing, crazy, and have me confused and torn. Thanks for your wonderful posts, especially about Lizzy and o!Ciel. I want to say that I think Tanaka in addition to Sebastian knew about his true identity, what do you think?
