\n* The P4 becoming a boy-band makes sense because of their collective desire to make something "perfect" and their history of being loved for their position, two things a cult leader could easily exploit. However it seems strange to have Ciel's "Phantom Five" made up of the P4's former fags, as Ciel doesn't know many of them very well and contacting them on short notice would be difficult. However the P4's fags are also some of the only ones who know what REALLY happened to Derrik, so they don't trust the P4 already, and all of them know that Ciel is more than he seems, but have only seen him in a good light (exposing the truth and working for the Queen). Instead of hiring a bunch of professional teenage singers who are strangers, Ciel chose to hire people who he could inform about the potential danger of going up against a cult of unknown power, and who would trust him and work hard because they know that this is far more than a simple job.

** Alternatively, if the sexual assault hints are true the stripping in chapter 71 could have been made Ciel think he was about to be raped again. We never see what Maurice ''was'' planning, so that option is still entirely possible.

* In chapter 71, Ciel is completely calm when apprehending Maurice Cole, even after the other goons rush in and grab him. It's not until when Maurice rips apart Ciel's shirt with scissors that he freaks out and begs for them to stop. Some flashbacks Ciel had during the Ship Arc reveal that [[spoiler: before being sacrificed,]] Ciel had his shirt ripped apart with a knife, cut the same way Maurice tore the shirt. Quite possibly, the bullies reminded him of the sacrifice. So basically a petty bully at a boarding school managed to trigger another student's PTSD.

* Ciel's DarkAndTroubledPast has hints of sexual assault at the hands of the cultist members who captured him. They [[ForceFeeding force fed]] him his meals, pushed him down to the ground in the season 3 opening, stripped him of his shirt, and branded him. Much emphasis is put on their hands touching him and Ciel later seeks revenge on those who humiliated him. There's also his HatesBeingTouched mentality in regards to everyone except Sebastian and Elizabeth.

** Eepisode 8 shows that Alois was raped by the former Lord Trancy. It's implied that this helped make him so AxCrazy he's shown to have been a little off-kilter even before the event, having joked about his entire village dying and happily looted their corpses when they actually did, but his violent tendencies seem to date from it, not to mention his compulsive promiscuity.

** Fun fact: later in life, Arthur Conan Doyle publicly became [[spoiler: a firm believer in the existence of the supernatural, specifically psychics, fairies, and spiritualism. All throughout the explanation Ciel and Sebastian give him, not once do either of them refer to Sebastian as a demon, instead saying "not human." Without confirmation of Sebastian's exact nature, it seems that in-universe Arthur would have drawn his own conclusions. Furthermore, the ending shows that Arthur only felt safe writing down the truth years later when he had a daughter, which aligns with when he started being more open about his beliefs. So in-universe Arthur's experiences led him to believe in supernatural forces, but fear kept him from admitting anything about the subject for decades, and then in later years this experience enforced his own beliefs. Furthermore, having seen for himself proof of malevolent supernatural powers, he was probably frightened and desperate for proof of benign psychics, fairies and spirits to counter the malevolent ones.]]
