    Queen Victoria 

Queen Victoria

Voiced by: Ayako Kawasumi (JP), (young) Alexis Tipton, Bridgett Dahl (old) (EN)

"ALLLBEERTT!! I wish you were here today too!!!"

The queen of Great Britain. Ciel does work concerning the underground society for her, as her Watchdog.

  • Adaptational Villainy: In the first anime, she was the one responsible for the Phantomhives' deaths, in conjunction with Ash, and was attempting to start a world war.
  • Affectionate Nickname: She enjoys calling Ciel "boy", much to his embarrassment.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: In the manga, she's a nice old lady, who casually orders a man assassinated and Ciel framed. Orders Ciel to abduct the scientist in charge of a German secret weapons program, and generally knows more about anything than anyone.
  • Body Horror: In the anime she has bits of Albert's flesh merged with hers, and it's still rotting.
  • Cool Old Lady: In the manga.
  • Cool Shades: In the manga.
  • Dynamic Entry: In the manga, she arrived at the curry cooking competition on horseback.
  • El Cid Ploy: At the end of the first anime season the real Victoria is dead, killed by Ash, but Arthur arranges for a double to stand in for her, with only a few people knowing the truth.
  • Expecting Someone Taller: In the anime, when she makes her first public appearance for quite a while during the Curry Competition several people in the audience comment that she seems particularly frail, not knowing about the Fountain of Youth situation because she keeps her veil down.
  • The Faceless: In the anime, keeps her veil over her face in public to disguise her young appearance.
  • Fountain of Youth: In the anime thanks to Ash.
  • Friend to All Children: She has a particular soft spot towards children, calling them "the future".
  • Historical In-Joke: In the manga, Queen Victoria has the occasional fit of tears that can be only alleviated by a servant (John Brown) with a Prince Albert puppet.
  • Historical Villain Upgrade: In the first anime, she was the real Big Bad of the story.
  • Just Think of the Potential:
    • So there's someone out there who can make horrifying, flesh-eating zombies that only serious firepower can take out? Pretty scary. Let's try to recruit them!
    • Little Tyke Bomb genius girl, able to made the formula for dangerous bioweapons and formidable medicine? Let's invite her for tea!
  • The Mourning After: Like in real life, Victoria mourns her husband Albert dearly. It takes a sinister turn in the first anime.
  • Widow Woman: Her husband Albert passed away prior to the start of the story.
  • Yandere: In the first anime.

    John Brown 

John Brown
"I am done talking... but it seems the queen has something to say."

Queen Victoria's aide and a member of her Private Secretarial Officers. He often explains things on her behalf and works to cheer her up.

  • Co-Dragons: With the other servants of the queen.
  • Hand Puppet: He has one modeled after Prince Albert, the queen's late husband. He uses this to comfort her whenever she's upset.
  • Named After Somebody Famous: There was a real John Brown in real life who tended the queen after Prince Albert died. He didn't have white hair or superpowers though (we think).
  • Nice Guy: Comforts Victoria when she's upset, and is polite when dealing with Sebastian.
  • The Quiet One: Speaks when spoken to, when cheering up the queen, or when it's part of his current task.
  • Terrible Trio: With Grey and Phips.
