These fortunes allow for the survival of these families, and their influence in the world around them. We see much of nobility in the daylight, masquerading as nothing more than a wealthy individual with more than enough to keep them happy. However, underneath that pristine facade lies a truth unbeknownst to little; a truth that is often left in the shadows for good reason. The houses of nobility hold high to multiple titles given by the Queen herself, titles that relate directly to the Underworld and all it's misdeeds. The jobs of these houses is to police this dank and dirty villainous pit. It is their job to keep London safe from the monsters otherwise out to destroy it. These houses are known as the wicked nobles, and to cross them, is to most certainly, face death. London, England - 1886. The days grow stranger and stranger, with new powers and complications rising from everywhere and nowhere. The Queen and her beloved husband are concerned with their great nations well-being and safety. Luckily, over the many years of their lives, and the reign of previous Kings and Queens, cloaked agents of the crown exist within the reach of the tactile King and Queen. Earls and Countesses of worthy nobility secretly serve underneath the Queen as agents of the underground; the dark side of England. They are employed by her majesty and his grace in order to expel any threat that may be plaguing England's underworld, and threatening to expose itself to the civilian's eyes and lives. However, with this type of responsibility, the King and Queen's nobles often find themselves in dangerous situations that put their lives in peril. Often the King and Queen have been baffled to receive a letter, stating such a perilous job has been completed, when it reality, it should have taken England finest soldiers and weapons to accomplish such feats. The King and Queen are suspicious of their nobles; enough-so, that they have begun fabricating devious ploys and missions for these Earls and Countesses, to push their limits. Should one fail, the leaders of this country would simply move on, but just how far is one human willing to go? Or.... Is this all really being done by a human at all...?

GENERAL RULES Ⅰ Ⅱ Ⅲ Ⅳ Ⅴ Ⅵ Ⅶ All content posted or to be posted within this OOC & Sign-Up's thread must abide by Iwaku's terms and rules. Should you be unfamiliar with these, please follow this link and do a little reading ♥ Iwaku's Terms & Rules Please refrain from causing any un-needed drama within the OOC thread. This thread is for chatting with the fellow members of this RP, as well as to create some excellent plot and have fun with our characters. Should any drama be spotted, I will personally remove you from this RP without a second though. Though Iwaku implements a 'stopper' of sorts when it comes to spamming in any thread, it is still possible, especially when no one else is online or active. Please do not spam messages within this thread. It is annoying for those who have to scroll through message after message, especially when you can easily condense multiple points into a singular post. If you are a playing an Earl/Countess or a Butler, you MUST have a pairing. This RP does not have any solo Earls/Countesses or Butlers. This roleplay has been designed to accommodate a consistent EVEN number of people. No one person will ever be paired with multiple people. I do this in order to get vast amounts of perspective, and allow people to have more fun interacting within the RP. Should someone leave the RP, I have a couple characters put on hold that may be used in the case of emergency to keep the roleplay going, however, if someone leaves, the main priority is to acquire another player in order to keep the balance. Should you or someone you know be interested in joining this RP, however notice that all the spots are full, you may join the waiting list! Yes, this list has been derived seeing as apparently, a lot of people want in on the Black Butler RP. Should this interest you, please send @Ali a PM and I will add you to the list and notify you as soon as a position opens up. I am a HELPFUL person. Don't think of me as intimidating, because I'm about as scary as a fluffy unicorn with doughnuts wrapped around it's horn. Should you require help, shoot me a PM or ask over the OOC thread. As soon as I see your message, I'll respond! There are many other ways to contact me as well if it is an emergency, and those can be found down below in my signature :) ACTIVITY & POSTING Ⅰ Ⅱ Ⅲ Ⅳ Ⅴ Ⅵ Ⅶ Ⅷ Ⅸ Ⅹ Ⅺ Ⅻ Once before, I hosted this RP as a GM. Unfortunately, I never got the chance to see it rise to what I'd love for a Black Butler RP to come to. If you are interested in being apart of this RP, your main priority should be to post. I understand if outside circumstances pull you away, however, there is only so long that the "life is crazy" excuse will work. In order to be apart of this RP, I require EVERY member (including myself, of course) to post at least TWICE in the IC Thread, every week. It doesn't matter to me what time of day you post, seeing as we're all located in different time zones, however, throughout the course of Monday to Sunday, you must put in TWO posts at the minimum - any less than that will be met with a PM message from me, followed by a warning, followed by your butt getting kicked from this RP. I adore when people post multiple times a day! Do not think that just because you posted an hour ago and only warranted one response from another RP'er, means you cannot respond immediately. Please post as often as you'd like within the RP - however, should you be doing this, make sure your posts have some measure to them and are not just a few paragraphs of garble. Collaboration posts are more than welcome within this RP. My personal suggestion for a collaboration site, would be google docs - it's easy to use, and has multiple settings to allow one to view, edit, or do both! All you need is a gmail. Check it out here: Google Docs All posts must be written in third person. For those of you who have RP'ed with me before (me being @Ali), you may have noticed I put considerable effort into my IC posts, asthetic and all. When it comes to posting, please at least try to make it look pretty... even text colour... bring me some happiness, guys... T_T IC posts must be a minimum of one paragraph (5-8 sentences). I have no maximum; the more you wish to write, the better ♥ If you expect to be away for a certain amount of time (four day or more) please let me (@Ali) know as soon as you are away, so I don't remove you from the RP under the assumption you've deserted. If you have not posted in the IC for two weeks without proper reasoning, or letting the GM know, you will be removed from the RP. There will be absolutely NO Metagaming allowed. If you are unfamiliar with what Metagaming is, here follows a definition: Metagaming is any strategy, action or method used in a game which transcends a prescribed ruleset, uses external factors to affect the game, or goes beyond the supposed limits or environment set by the game. Another definition refers to the game universe outside of the game itself. When posting in the IC, please be sure to refrain from using 'black' or 'white'. Though I believe white background users to be plebs, we must respect their eyes, therefore, please use the default colour box, which looks like this: to write with white text (or black) that way, it easily changes depending on the background and doesn't harm our poor white-background plebs. (I'm being helpful) Under no circumstances will I allow people to post "W.I.P" posts within the IC. If you even think about it, I'll skewer you. CHARACTER CREATION Ⅰ Ⅱ Ⅲ Ⅳ Ⅴ Ⅵ Ⅶ Ⅷ Ⅸ All Characters must follow the skeleton template laid out in the 'Skeletons' section, depending on their perspective character. If you are an Earl/Countess, please do not use the butler template. Characters may range between the ages of 12 and 20, I will not accept any younger or older. When chosing an image for your CS, please make note that I will accept any form of photo, whether it be realistic, semi-realistic, fantasy, or anime. I am open to peoples creation and interpretation of selective photos, so if one image inparticular strikes a flame for you, please use it. Please keep in mind, when creating your characters, that they are linked to another, and therefore must share certain traits (wishes, goals, faustian contract seals, ect..) The character limit for this RP, is ONE (1). There is absolutely NO USE of cannon characters, within this RP. This includes canon character FC's and names. Fan-Art is welcome, however it must slightly resemble someone else, rather than the character in full. Please do not create a Mary-Stu, Gary-Stu, or a Special Snowflake. Everybody has flaws, even demons (*cough* Sebastian's cat addiction *Cough*) Earl's and Countesses are more than welcome to have 'skills' of their own. Such as 'proficiency with firearms' or 'excells at horseback' - just remember, that their power comes from their name, and their demon butler. All demon/master pairings MUST share a contract seal. The more noticeable the seal, the more connected the Master/Mistress and butler are. For example, should the seal be placed on a nobles eye, tongue, or cheek - that pairing is knit together very tightly. Should the seal be placed on a nobels hand, collarbone, or neck, that pairing is knit together semi-tightly. Should a seal be placed on a nobels back or legs, that pairing isn't knit together at all, and are more so opposing forces with rules. Butlers and Nobles do not have to have matching locations when it comes to the seals. BUTLERS RULES Ⅰ Ⅱ Ⅲ Ⅳ Ⅴ Ⅵ Ⅶ Ⅷ Ⅸ Ⅹ Ⅺ All Butlers must have an Earl/Countess. Butlers may be Male or Female. Please refrain from focusing to much on demonic history (aka - who your demon was BEFORE they became contracted). This RP is about the relationship between a Master/Mistress and Butler pairing, not who the demon was prior. When it comes to demonic history, I won't completely forbid it, but please don't make it the center of attention (please refer to III in this section). Butlers do not have to share the same placement of Faustian Seal's as their contracts (Earls/Countesses), however, remember that the seal is just as visible on the demon as it is on the noble. Butlers take on the name their contract (Earl/Mistress) gives them, seeing as this is a group roleplay, you are responsible for making your respective butlers name, not the person playing your Master/Mistress. Should your partner cease to be apart of this roleplay, please inform the GM (@Ali) immediately. You may not switch partners mid-RP without liable reason (however, should you discuss it with your partner and the GM it's possible.) Your butler is responsible for caring for their contract (Earl/Mistress) therefore, unless your contract specifically orders it, you may not leave them for dead. When creating demonic abilities, please refrain from making your butler intensely OP. Yes, they are demons, but even demons aren't all powerful. You may refer to the superpower wiki in order to adapt some demonic powers. If you wish, you may create your own demonic powers. Please run them by the GM first before you completely fall in love with them to make sure they're alright. EARL & COUNTESS RULES Ⅰ Ⅱ Ⅲ Ⅳ Ⅴ Ⅵ Ⅶ Ⅷ All Earls/Countesses must hold a "Queen Given Title" - Ex. Queen's Guard Dog. Earls/Countesses must be between the ages of 12 and 20. Earls/Countesses have no magical ability and will never be able to have magical ability. Earls/Countesses may have 'staff' with special qualities just like in the anime with bard-roy, mey-rin, and finny. Earls/Countesses may possess certian abilities such as sword-skill and archery, however, none of it can be powered by magic. If you lose your partner mid-way through the RP, please contact the GM right away in order to recieve a replacement. Defecting from your partner midway through the RP is not allowed unless certian circumstances arise. Earls/Countesses are in charge - butlers may make menial decisions, but ultimately, you have the ability to control every action they take/make. SEXUALIZATION & PROFANITY Ⅰ Ⅱ Ⅲ Ⅳ Ⅴ This RP will contain themes unsuitable for those ages 12 and younger. To partipate, please be sure you are open to anything PG-13 Profanity and vulgar language are constant themes both in the OOC and IC - should you be unable to handle this type of language, please refrain from joining the RP. Slight sexual themes may be present within the IC. Should you wish to take any roleplay past the age of 17 years, place it within a spoiler and title it as follows "Warning Sexual Content" or, simply take it to a PM. Love'esque relationships between humans and butlers are allowed, however, as previously stated, should the love become more sexual, please use spoilers or take it to a PM. I will not allow anyone under the age of 14 into this RP, due to the possible themes including but not limited to: gore, sexual acts, profanity, devil-lore/devil-worship, blood pacts, and murder. QUEEN'S MISSIONS Ⅰ Ⅱ Ⅲ Ⅳ This RP is going to run in the style of arcs, placed out by me, the GM. Each arc will be different and relate to something the Queen has issued out as a mission, to all her underground nobles. There is no option in accepting or declining these missions, as they are the base of the IC, you're going to be following the story-line. I apologize in advance if some of the arcs seem like blatent rip-off's of the actual manga/anime, I truly adore Yana Toboso's creativity and story-telling, and wish to play around with it in my own way. (SHOULD A STORY BE OF TOBOSO'S ORIGIN, IT WILL BE STATED IN THE ARCS DESCRIPTION) A new arc will appear once the previous one has been finished - this relies on the RP'ers of this RP to push the plot forward. Should it not be moving fast enough, I will push the plot. NPCS'S Ⅰ Ⅱ Ⅲ Ⅳ The term "NPC" generally stands for non-playable character. In this RP, however, there will be a few characters created by me and by the players that will be available to be played by all players. (I hope I haven't lost you.) Each person may create PERSONAL NPC's or PUBLIC NPC's. The difference must be stated underneath the characters name. If you create a personal NPC, you and only those you've given permission to may play that character. If you create a public NPC (or if I do) everyone is allowed to play that character, so long as they fall in-line with it's previously encountered personality. (Ex. Jack Smith is a feisty, handsome and charming man who likes to flirt with girls of all ages) That is how I would create "Jack Smith". You CANNOT roleplay him as a meek, shy, quiet boy with daddy issues.

So here's a general PSA for this RP - and I apologize if this isn't what you wanted to hear, but honestly, it needs to be said. Though I am the GM of this roleplay, it is not solely up to me to progress this story line. Yes, my contributing factors will aid in the stories progress when time requires it, however, when I see posts being made then weeks of silence, I fear for this RP's continuance. As a roleplayer, it is the job of said person to aid in story-telling, creativity, and interest. Should you join an RP, you cannot solely rely on the person in power to keep an RP interesting - if that were the case, there would be no point in even having group RP's; it would fall directly under the GM's hands to do everything and at that point this just becomes a written story, published by one author, rather than many. I want to see this RP flourish, and I apologize if I haven't been attentive with the activity or things of that nature, however, I can't be expected to devote my entire life to this in order to get people to post/move along with their own story lines. I will post updates and story arcs when time calls for it, but if only a few people have posted OPENING paragraphs, there isn't much I can do - I will not create conflict out of thin air! In conclusion, should you believe you do not have the creative merit or ability to continue with such a free-form RP, it'd be best to disembark and find a more GM-runned RP. However, should you wish to stay and progress with me and the others, I look forward to the future of this RP ♥ Thanks for reading. -Ali Public NPC's (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Public NPC's (open) Public NPC's (close) Lucilla Crawford (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Lucilla Crawford (open) Lucilla Crawford (close) ▣ LUCILLA CRAWFORD ▣ ❂ Owner of Lulu's Spices & Herbs ❂ Personality Traits: -Flirtatious -Endearing -Sensual -Demanding -Jealous -Playful Lucilla Crawford is a young lady often regarded as a 'wicked witch'. She is a practitioner of the Pagan arts, and is one of the rare witches who is truly magic and is able to perform spells of multiple varieties. In the light, she is known best for her spice store, Lulu's spices, however, in the dark, she is known as a helpful source for underground assignments given to the Queen's special nobles. Lucilla is very aware of demons and all mythical beings in the world. She is able to know upon first introduction what origin a person may be. Often flirting with the dangerous side, Lucilla will often request sexual favours for information, however, should she be feeling kind, she will settle for a kiss or perhaps some form of embarrassment. Lucilla prefers males, and when visited by them, tends to get into trouble. With females, she often likes to watch them embarrass themselves by her own hand. Cruel in her ways, Lucilla is often a last minute resource, however, she is incredibly helpful and knows more than enough things to assist a noble with their current endeavors.

They live amongst a slew of different personality types and prefer to observe rather than interact. More often than not, the two brothers can be found paroozing the vast libraries of the Gremoir Mansion, in search of new information and knowledge. It is rare these two are found performing actual tasks around the house, mostly because Klayton will not allow them to touch anything fragile, due to previous incidents which shall' remain undisclosed under request of the brothers. TRAITS •Calculating •Intelligent •Thoughtful •Clumsy •Observant POSITION Servants and Informants of the Gremoir Household, in service to Lady Anastasia. Who may play this NPC?: @Ali and @Shayla EXTRA ✵Gideon and Martian are low-level demons who follow Klayton from master to master. It is rare that Klayton is found in a contract without these two somewhere around. ✵Being low-level demons, Gideon and Martian possess demonic abilities, few, but some; however, they rarely use them. The two much prefer observing a fight and learning skills and tactics, rather than putting them into practice. ✵Gideon and Martian can often be found telling tall tales and spouting random information to Lady Anastasia when she has nothing to do - they are quite useful for interesting information and short-stories. ✵Being demons, Gideon and Martian have vast amounts of knowledge both from the human world, and the demonic world - should one require some information, dates, or anything regarding history, these two are likely to have it. ✠•✠•✠ Personal or Public NPC?: Personal SAMANTHA 'SY' KELVIN Samantha (or Sy, as she prefers to be called), is a young woman, both blind and mute. If Sy could speak, she would be enraged at all times. She hates her family for what they did to her as a child, and those around her. Sy is violent, volatile and ready to kill at a simple command. She is always active and doing something, never one for sitting still, lest she believes she will once again be taken away. Sy holds great appreciate for the person who took her in, whoever they may be, and has decided to serve them in thanks for her freedom. TRAITS • Shy • Quiet • Violent • Angry • Destructive POSITION Sy is a servant of the Gremoir Estate. She reports directly to Amanda, out of fear of the demoness, however, doesn't truly understand the woman's origin. Sy is responsible for the Estate's protection. Who may play this NPC?: @Ali and @Shayla EXTRA ✵ In her childhood, Sy experienced abuse, both verbally and more so physically, due to un-loving parents. She was traded at a young age to a small, unknown group of scientists, attempting to create the next best weapon. She was put through torture even demons would find unnecessary in order to coat her body in metal, and infuse her bones with enhancement drugs. This lead to her going blind, mute, and deaf in one ear. Underneath all her armour, Sy is scarred from head to toe. ✵ Sy's entire body (aside from her head) is covered in strong metal, that was surgically fused to her body during experimentation. ✵ Sy wears bandages around her eyes, and according to what she once signed to the brothers Gideon and Martian, underneath the bandages lies a site most unfitting of her outer demeanor. Both Gideon and Martian have requested she remove them for inspection, however, she never has. ✵ Sy's body is equipped with state-of-the-art weaponry which she uses to defend the manor. ✵ Her body was injected with drugs which enhance her durability, speed, and strength. ✠•✠•✠ Personal or Public NPC?: Personal BILLIE SHERMAN Billie is a go-getter, often found out and about, somewhere on the Gremoir estate, she is a very childish person at heart. Despite her outward appearance, Billie is a kind soul, she often employs her mean girl facade when in the presence of strangers (much like a puffer fish expands when it's frightened), she enjoys making herself look intimidating before those who she does not trust. Billie is a smart girl, with a very loving personality, especially towards animals - so much so, that the servants and people of the Gremoir estate have come to know her as the Animal Tamer. TRAITS • Playful • Determined • Fun-loving • Protective • Excitable POSITION Billie is a servant of the Gremoir estate. She was brought in due to her tremendous skill with being able to easily tame any animal.

She uses this as a last-minute resort to tame unyielding large animals. ✠•✠•✠ Personal or Public NPC?: Personal TIMOTHY REID Unlike Amanda, Timothy is a very willing, open, and caring individual. He often employs the mantra of "treat others how you want to be treated", therefore, he is kind to everyone and anyone, despite how they act towards him. Timothy may look weak on the outside, however, he is incredibly strong, both physically and mentally. Timothy can take a lot and give it right back. Amanda as well as the brothers Gideon and Martian have come to call him 'bolder', due to his unwavering mental and physical self. TRAITS • Loving • Addictive • Strong Willed • Constant • Dim-Witted POSITION Timothy is a servant of the Gremoir Estate. Due to his tremendous physical strength, Timothy is responsible for protecting the manor and it's inhabitants along with Sy.

She was brought into Lady Anastasia's service by Klaytons hand, however, refuses to protect the woman unless forced, or with good reason. Amanda is brutal to deal with, as she is constantly back-talking and sassing whoever may be speaking with her. She is rude, crude, and un-befitting of a Gremoir servant - however, what she lacks in social finesse, she makes up for with defense and offense. Amanda is the type to take action first and speak later, and once underneath her blade, it's rare she's able to be stopped. TRAITS • Rude • Disrespectful • Crass • Tactical • Powerful POSITION Amanda is a servant of the Gremoir Estate. She is Anastasia Gremoir's footman and reports selectively to Klayton Cross. Amanda is primarily responsible for the Countesses protection (whether she likes it or not..) Who may play this NPC?: @Ali and @Shayla EXTRA ✵ Amanda is a strong demon which has been eternally contracted under Klayton due to a bet she lost some millennia ago ✵ Amanda prefers swords, and will occasionally teach Anastasia when Klayton does not have the time ✵ She is incredibly jealous of the relationship between Anastasia and Klayton, and often tries to sabotage their contract ✵ Amanda is very strong in regards to most demons, however, has never once defeated Klayton in battle - she hasn't even come close ✠•✠•✠ Personal or Public NPC: Personal REXEN As A Dog... It wasn’t like he wasn’t educated, the Grimoire house didn’t want a naked idiot running around their manor when he was in human form. He has some basic speech, it isn’t like they were going to give him some high class education because of it. Though they keep Rexen because he is loyal to a flaw. He’s not necessarily as dog as some people would expect. As a dog, he’s a dog, loyal, trustworthy and has a habit of following the Master of the house around. Which makes him kind of a rival to the Demon butler at the house as well. Rexen is prone to biting strangers, people he doesn’t like, or people who get too close to the Master.
