Just outside of London, the earldom of Phatomhive is located on beautiful grounds. On Ciel's tenth birthday, a fire erupts and burns the manor down to the ground, along with both of Ciel's parents. Ciel goes missing for more than a month, but suddenly turns back up with a mysterious figure in black at his side. It turns out that ruthless villains murdered Ciel's parents in front of his eyes before burning Phatomhive Manor to cinders. After the fire, the demon butler named Sebastian Michealis shows up and makes a proposition to the young heir to the Phatomhive earldom. He will help Ciel track down and avenge his parents' killers. However, this vengeance will come at a price. When the last fiend has been brought to justice, Sebastian Michealis will gain possession of Ciel's soul. Unfortunately for both of them, the Earl of Phantomhive is required to be the head of the guards of Queen Victoria. This means that the quest for vengeance is delayed by the need to cater to the queen's every whim. Ciel and Sebastian are constantly forced to hobnob with the nobility and attend tedious official functions.
