    Edgar Redmond 

Edgar Redmond

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/edgarredmond_794.png

Prefect of the Scarlet Fox Dorm.


  • Absurdly Powerful Student Council: He's a member of the P4, the representatives of the students' houses, and holds the highest authority after the principal and vice-principal.
  • Animal Motifs: The animal of Redmond's dorm is a fox, which seems to represent a majestic and subtle cunning, since he deciphered a secret letter written in code to draw attention to Derrick's bullying.
  • Appeal to Tradition
  • The Beautiful Elite: His house's secondary theme. Obviously those with Blue Blood must be beautiful.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He participated in the murder of Derrick Arden and the Vice-Principal, restraining the Vice-Principal so Greenhill can kill him, using Undertaker to resurrect and hide the bodies, and acting as Greenhill's Secret Keeper.
  • Bishōnen: He is the nephew of Aleister Chamber after all. Like his uncle, he seems to be very well aware of his good looks and is just as flamboyant.
  • The Casanova: He seems to be very popular with the ladies, including a few of Lawrence's sisters. He also mentions that he does not want a fixed partner, implying his play-boy ways.
  • Colourful Theme Naming: His last name is the color of the Scarlet Fox dorm.
  • Deal with the Devil: He makes a contract with Undertaker to resurrect the murdered students and Vice-Principal to cover up Greenhill's crimes and protect the school. In return, Undertaker gets to fool around as its Principal.
  • Disappointed in You: His reaction to Maurice Cole's Engineered Public Confession.
  • Fate Worse than Death: He's expelled for his actions. Considering his loyalty to Weston, this is a big deal.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: He's blond, and he's quite nice.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: And he's aware of it. "I'm ashamed of my inability to judge people."
    • He evidently didn't think too much about how Maurice Cole could have possibly done the work that he did in so little time, and with such soft hands.
    • And before him, there was Derrick Arden, essentially another Maurice Cole with that Bitch in Sheep's Clothing act cranked Up to Eleven, who doesn't stop at stealing other students' works but also traumatizes them with bullying.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: How he felt about murdering Derrick, his group of friends, and the Vice-Principal.
  • It Runs in the Family: Ciel has seen those gold locks, gold eyelashes and Ambiguously Bi Casanova act somewhere... Oh wait a minute, he's Viscount Druitt's nephew!?
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Naturally.
  • Nice Guy: The friendliest of the prefects.
  • The Proud Elite: His entire house's theme.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Averted. While he does have red eyes, it's only to identify himself as a member of the Scarlet Fox dorm, and he's the most nicest guy in the school.
  • Secret Keeper: Of Greenhill's murder rampage on Derrick Arden and his colleagues, as well as Vice-Principal Agares
  • Sherlock Scan: No one but him noticed that the poem was written in blue ink in some part, thereby enabling him alone to break the code.
  • Smarter Than You Look: Aside noticing the parts written in blue ink, he was acknowledged enough to decode a hidden message written inside a poem.
  • Something About a Rose: His house's symbol.
  • Taking the Heat: He offers to do this so Greenhill can be protected from going to jail for multiple murder after killing Derrick Arden, the Vice-Principal, and several other students.
  • True Companions: All of the P4 is revealed to be this, to the point of covering up multiple murders.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: The prefects were willing to do anything, including multiple-murder, to protect the school.

    Lawrence Bluer 

Lawrence Bluer

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lawrencebluer_9002.png

Prefect of the Sapphire Owl Dorm.


  • Absurdly Powerful Student Council: The P4.
  • Appeal to Tradition
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He participated in the murder of Derrick Arden and the Vice-Principal, restraining the Vice-Principal so Greenhill can kill him, and becoming Greenhill's Secret Keeper.
  • Broken Pedestal: Clayton's expression when he learns his prefect of the Sapphire Owl dorm committed multiple murder.
  • Colourful Theme Naming: His last name is the color of the Sapphire Owl dorm.
  • Cry Cute: After becoming a prefect, Lawrence steps foot in the Swan Gazebo's lawn for the first time and is so overwhelmed that he cries out of sheer joy.
  • Determined Defeatist: Sapphire Owl had lost so many cricket tournaments in the past that Bluer became convinced that studying is all he and his students are good at. Thanks to Ciel, though, he decided to take another shot at winning anyway.
  • Do Not Call Me "Paul": He dislikes being called by his first name, Lawrence, because it's against the rules. Since it's not an official rule though, the others, especially Redmond, do it anyway.
  • Fate Worse than Death: He's expelled for his actions. Considering his loyalty to Weston, this is a big deal.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: How he felt about murdering Derrick, his group of friends, and the Vice-Principal. He even tells Ciel this, but Ciel isn't convinced in the slightest.
  • Nerd Glasses: Poor eyesight seems to be a stereotypical trait of the Sapphire Owl (which is considered the House of Intelligence, so to speak)
  • Nerds Are Virgins: When Redmond jokes about the number of women that hang around Bluer, Bluer reveals that his "women" are actually his seven sisters, and he is the only man in the family. Almost everyone is mortified to hear this.
  • Outnumbered Sibling: He had seven sisters; three older and four younger ones; he's the only son in his family. To say Ciel and Harcourt are surprised would be understating it...
  • The Owl-Knowing One: The symbol for Bluer's dorm is an owl, which represents wisdom and knowledge.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: He usually covers his right eye with his hair.
  • Principles Zealot: Out of the P4, he follows the rules more closely and faithfully.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses: Bluer gets these a couple of times in the manga, most notably when he makes an astounding bowl against Greenhill in the cricket match, and later when he and the other prefects confess to murdering Derrick Arden to protect the integrity of their school when they discovered that he was bulling other students and using their talents to make himself appear perfect- and the vice principal was not only aware, but allowing it.
  • Secret Keeper: Of Greenhill's murder rampage on Derrick Arden and his colleagues, as well as Vice-Principal Agares.
  • The Smart Guy: Comes with the territory.
  • True Companions: All of the P4 is revealed to be this, to the point of covering up multiple murders.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: The prefects were willing to do anything, including multiple-murder, to protect the school.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His hair appears to be a gray-blue color.

    Gregory Violet 

Gregory Violet

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gregoryviolet_4962.png

Prefect of Violet Wolf Dorm.


  • Absurdly Powerful Student Council: The P4.
  • Ambiguously Evil: Aside from a very sinister appearance and liberally using satanic imagery in a manga where demons are very real, all the missing students were last seen in the Violet Fox Dorm. Gregory is the Prefect of Violet Fox. Hmm.
  • Appeal to Tradition
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He participated in the murder of Derrick Arden, his group of friends, and the Vice-Principal by blocking the doorway when Derrick's friends try to escape and becoming Greenhill's Secret Keeper.
  • Black Cloak: A standard part of the Violet Fox uniform.
  • Broken Pedestal: Cheslock's expression when he learns his prefect of the Violet Fox dorm committed multiple murder.
  • Casting a Shadow
  • Cloudcuckoolander: He mixes a drink composed of several random cocktails, and during the cricket tournament he drew the house crest of the Violet Fox dorm on the entire playing field.
  • Colourful Theme Naming: His last name is the color of the Violet Fox dorm.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Has shades of this.
  • Distressed Dude: During the Blue Cult arc, on multiple levels. The readers first find him being drained of all his blood by a desperate Bravat, on the edge of death. Then we learn he's been aware of Bravat's actions all along, but for some reason unable to directly act against him- the only way he could fight back was by inviting his friends in the hopes that one of them would contact Ciel.
  • Drink Order: Gregory mixes a dozen random cocktails together and drinks them all. Says a lot about the guy.
  • Excessive Evil Eyeshadow
  • Fate Worse than Death: He's expelled for his actions. Considering his loyalty to Weston, this is a big deal.
  • Goth
  • Guyliner: He wears black eye shadow.
  • He's Dead, Jim: After Greenhill clubs Derrick in the head, Violet puts a hand over the boy's mouth and notices that he's not breathing.
  • Hypocrite: Calls Ciel "weird" for working like a butler despite his Earl status, while he makes a drink by mixing several cocktails and blowing bubbles into it.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: How he felt about murdering Derrick, his group of friends, and the Vice-Principal.
  • In the Hood: This also applies to all the students living in Violet Fox, as it is actually required to wear a cloak.
  • Loners Are Freaks: He and the Violet Fox students are viewed as this by the other dorms.
  • Mad Artist: Though just how mad remains to be seen. In one instance, he drew a creepy drawing of Ciel about to be attacked by the Jabberwocky.
  • Multicolored Hair: It seems to be black and white.
  • No Social Skills: Well, he spends so much time drawing that he (and all of the Violet Fox students) had no time to develop his social skills, not that he wanted to. Though he is on fairly good terms with the other P4.
  • The Quiet One: He's the least talkative of the P4.
  • Reclusive Artist: In-universe example. He'd rather draw and paint than socialize, and dislikes his job as a prefect because it prevents him from focusing on his art.
  • Savage Wolves: The animal of Violet's dorm is a wolf, though this trope fits since all members of the Violet dorm are seen as weird and eccentric outcasts and their Prefect was involved with multiple-murder.
  • Secret Keeper: Of Greenhill's murder rampage on Derrick Arden and his colleagues, as well as Vice-Principal Agares. Later, he knew what Bravat was doing.
  • Troll: Demands that Greenhill strike a very complicated pose, then draws everything but Greenhill. When Greenhill finally loses patience and relaxes, Gregory laments that he ruined his masterpiece.
  • True Companions: All of the P4 is revealed to be this, to the point of covering up multiple murders.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: The prefects were willing to do anything, including multiple-murder, to protect the school.

    Herman Greenhill 

Herman Greenhill

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hermangreenhill_7896.png

Prefect of the Green Lion Dorm.


  • Absurdly Powerful Student Council: The P4.
  • Appeal to Tradition
  • Batter Up!: Greenhill used a cricket bat to kill Derrick Arden to protect Weston High's traditions from being sullied, along with the Vice-Principal for ignoring Derrick's behavior. He also murdered Derrick's friends to remove any witnesses this way.
  • Berserker Tears: While murdering Derrick Arden, he starts shedding tears out of sheer rage.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He clubbed Derrick Arden to death in a rage for dishonoring Weston High's tradition and also murdered Vice-Principal Agares for being in league with Arden. He also murdered Derrick's friends to remove any witnesses to the crime.
  • Big Damn Heroes: With Edward in chapter 71. Dude beats up four Mooks holding Ciel without harming so much as a hair on the kid.
  • The Big Guy: Among the P4. He's the strongest, most athletic, and physically the largest of the group.
  • Broken Pedestal: To Edward, who is horrified when he discovers that the prefect he looked up to committed multiple murder. Hearing the truth robs him of the satisfaction of enjoying the same privileges his predecessors once had.
  • Carry a Big Stick: He's often seen carrying around a cricket bat on his shoulder. Turns out he used it to murder Derrick Arden, the Vice-Principal, and several other students to protect Weston High.
  • Colourful Theme Naming: His last name is the color of the Green Lion dorm.
  • Covert Pervert: While playing cricket, he's more distracted by Lau's scantily-clad women (displaying the Victorian equivalent of naked breasts) then any other player.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: It was hinted during the Weston High arc that Greenhill did something horrible in the past, so he had to have two other prefects accompany him in case it happens again. It's later revealed to be second-degree murder, which was done for the sake of Weston High. While he regrets it, he believes that he had no choice.
  • Fate Worse than Death: He's expelled for his actions. Considering his loyalty to Weston, this is a big deal.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: How he felt about murdering Derrick, his group of friends, and the Vice-Principal.
  • Improvised Weapon: Greenhill's cricket bat, which he used to commit multiple murder in order to protect Weston High.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Derrick, one of his asshole victims bites him on his right arm causing injuries. He probably can't do sports anymore.
  • Lovable Jock: He's one of the best sportsman in the school, but that does not make him a jerk.
  • Man Bites Man: He was a victim of this when he got his right arm bitten by a Bizarre Doll form of Derrick Arden during the Midnight Tea Party.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: His response to killing Derrick, several other students, and the Vice-Principal.
  • Panthera Awesome: The symbol of Greenhill's dorm is a lion, which seems to represent strength and victory as all members of the Green Lion dorm are excellent athletes.
  • Serious Business: Almost everything he does.
  • Shaming the Mob: During the cricket tournament, the crowd accuses Ciel and the Sapphire Owl dorm of poor sportsmanship. Greenhill rightly calls them out on their bullshit and defends Ciel's actions on the basis that aiming for someone's face requires a lot of practice and the use of such underhanded tactics is a sign that Bluer and his students are very serious about winning the cricket tournament this year.
  • Sympathetic Murderer: Killing a bully and a corrupt teacher to thwart an potential undesirable Prefect's candidacy is pretty extreme, but given the other murderous lunatics in this series, he does come close.
  • True Companions: All of the P4 is revealed to be this for Greenhill, to the point of covering up multiple murders.
  • Unstoppable Rage: After learning that Derrick was a sadistic bully who bribed the Vice-Principal and realizing that his becoming a prefect would ruin Weston High's reputation, Greenhill simply snaps and proceeds to murder both Derrick and the Vice-Principal in cold blood. When he calms down, however, he realizes the gravity of what he just did and freaks out.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: The prefects were willing to do anything, including multiple-murder, to protect the school.
  • You Wouldn't Like Me When I'm Angry: Derrick Arden and Vice-Principal Agares learned it the hard way.

    Maurice Cole 

Maurice Cole

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mauricecole_2249.png

Redmond's fag. He's a manipulative, sneaky, and incredibly vain man that enjoys bullying others. He tricked Ciel, who he saw a rival for Redmond's attention, and received punishment for his bullying and cheating after Ciel was able to find evidence of it.


  • Alpha Bitch: A rare male example.
  • Ambiguously Gay: He was really happy when Redmond offered him to sleep in his room after Soma trashed the bedrooms, and he is obviously dissapointed when Soma prevents it. He is really jealous when Redmond shows interest in other people. And when Ciel uses Lau's girls to distract Green Lion, Cole's reaction is complain about how he can't understand why the other students are "going gaga" for them. While biting a handkerchief.
  • Beauty Is Bad: He's known as the most beautiful and handsomest student in Weston High. He's also a manipulative, power-hungry bully.
  • Bishōnen: Subverted. He's actually a Gonk who happens to be good at make-up.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Keeps a nice/dependable front around the prefects, but is actually an Alpha Bitch

  • Chain of Deals: How he got his many followers.
  • Engineered Public Confession: Via a variation of Tin-Can Telephone.
  • Evil Chancellor: To Redmond. Though less The Starscream and more of the backstab-any-potential-rival kind.

  • Gonk: What he looks like without his makeup on.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: He told Ciel that he considers him a winner already, being a firstborn, and thus has no idea what it feels like to be like Cole: the youngest child who would never be able to inherit a title. Later, we find out he does know.
  • Make-Up Is Evil: Turns out he's as good with makeup as he is at manipulating his classmates.
  • Ojou Ringlets: Male example.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Beautiful!: His reasoning for being a cheating, manipulative bully.

  • Because You Were Nice to Me: He states he's willing to help Sebastian because Sebastian helped prove his innocence.
  • Bring My Brown Pants: He wet his pants while escaping the zombies at the midnight tea party.
  • Butt-Monkey: Where to start? In his first appearance, he's been a victim of Maurice Cole's trickery, and is therefore a social pariah. When Cole is exposed, Harcourt becomes Redmond's new fag and all starts to get better... but it doesn't last. In the cricket game he's grossly humiliated because of Ciel's trick. Later, he discovers that the prefects killed several students and the Vice Principal, meets face to face with the Bizarre Dolls, is almost killed by them, and then has to become a Secret Keeper.

  • Cheerful Child
  • Children Are Innocent: The only character who ends the Weston College Arc with his innocence intact.

Derrick Arden

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ch83_derrick_arden.png

The son of Queen Victoria's cousin and a fifth-year student at Weston College.


  • Alpha Bitch: Basically Maurice Cole, except eviler.
  • Asshole Victim: He and his friends bullied many other students to steal their work and make himself shine before the P4. He showed no signs of remorse when the P4 found out about this, since he'd bought off the Vice-Principal, and was finally murdered by Greenhill. Even though the P4 was expelled for their crimes, no one shed a tear for Derrick's death.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: He was basically The Ace of Weston High and the favorite of the prefects, but in reality he was a cruel bully who stole other students' works to make himself look good. So when the P4 found out, he manage to bribe the Vice-Principal and get a lighter punishment. However, once he makes a remark he would become the next member of the P4, this prompts Greenhill to kill him to protect the traditions of the school.
  • Broken Ace: Derrick was a bright and talented student; he was the captain of his cricket team, a master embroider, always got high marks, and wrote beautiful poetry. He was well-loved by the students, teachers, and the P4. However, that was just an act to make himself look good and get rid of his family's pressure. He's really a horrible bully who forces other students to do the work for him.
  • Broken Pedestal: Edgar was absolutely devastated to find that Derrick was bullying several students and stealing their work to maintain his popularity with the school.
  • The Bully: An even worse one than Maurice Cole.

  • Dead All Along: Derrick Arden was killed by the P4. He's been resurrected, albeit imperfectly.

  • Our Zombies Are Different: Raised by Undertaker. He came back as a Bizarre Doll.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Connections!: He has a distant family relation to the Queen, and this makes him think that he's entitled to commit despicable acts as he pleases in school. This eventually got him killed by Greenhill after a sly remark he would be a prefect in the next school year.
  • Stealing the Credit: He stole his "talents" to maintain this reputation, along with bullying the other students and bribing the Vice-Principal to overlook their behavior for four years. When Greenhill realized that his becoming prefect would allow Derrick to abuse that power, sullying the school's reputation, he murdered him.
