His Butler

His Butler


Paralleling the universe of Ciel and Sebastian, the son of the Timberline family, too, has found himself trapped in a cycle of revenge, with a demon butler at his side.

640 readers have visited His Butler since Everscale created it.


(Kuroshitsuji was Created by FunImation - )

The Duke of Timberline and his wife were proud, happy parents. Nobles of the highest caliber, they existed purely for the good of others. He worked at the head of Scotland Yard, investigating murders and other heinous crimes. She was a prominent doctor, saving lives every day.
And the son they loved admired them both. More than they could know.
In one night of horror and pain, the lives of Anthony and Constance Timberline came crashing down on top of them. Neither of them would survive the night.
And in a way, neither would their beloved son.
For a boy of ten years, walking into his parents’ room after a terrifying nightmare, only to find them both torn to pieces, their blood coating the walls… it must have been a traumatizing experience, to say the least.

But then… I would not know.
It is difficult to traumatize a demon.
James Noctis. That is what my Young Master has named me. I do not know exactly why he called me; with the deaths of his parents almost a year in the past, he has been living on the streets ever since. You would think he would know how to take are of himself, even if he was a broken shell.
Still… I should be grateful to that gang of drunkards who cornered my Young Master and his little friend in the alley where they slept. If they had not attempted to mug this broken boy…
I would still be bored as hell.
I am new to this service; living as a butler. Not many demons have dared to do it, in the past. It may be difficult, serving the hopeless whims and fancies of mankind.
But for a soul like his… destroyed before it lost its innocence… any torture is worth it.
And so I shall serve my Young Master, ever faithful, until the…
Until his very last breath.


This roleplay will begin during the attack on the boys in the alley. It will be up to the one roleplaying the Heir to actually summon dear James.

[center] Characters
open ~The Heir of Timberline~ open
The broken shell of the boy he once was, with the skills he learned from his revered parents, he will find out who murdered them, and why. And he will use his pawn to destroy them.

taken ~James Noctis~ taken
The demonic butler of the Heir of Timberline, he will serve his Young Master until the boy takes his very last breath. And then, in the very end, James will be the only one who really wins.

open ~The Friend~ open
A boy who met the Heir during his hopeless wanderings in the streets of London. Born on the streets himself, he helped the Heir survive the year he spent on the streets. He is the one person in the world that the Heir calls a friend, and the only person beside James for whom the Heir feels any form of affection. He is also the only other boy in the world who knows what James really is. He works as a servant in the Timberline family.

open ~The Maid~ open
The woman who mysteriously appeared on the doorstep of the Timberline family mansion. The Heir did not know her, the Friend did not know her, but James allowed her to come and work in the mansion. Only who knows who she really is. (She will come in after the attack on the boys. If you wish to take this role, send a private message to Everscale, and I will send you the character skeleton necessary for her, and you will be told what she truly is.)

Character Skeleton for the Boys –
Age: (the Heir is 11)
Gender: (I don’t need to tell you…)
Role: (the Heir, the Friend, or the Maid?)
Appearance: (full sentences, at least a paragraph, go deeply into detail please, and include an anime picture)
Personality: (same as appearance, except you don’t need a picture…)
Life Goal:
Crush: (if you have one…)
History: (though much of it was just explained…)

Toggle Rules

1) No power-playing/god-modding.
2) Posts must be at least 5 good sentences long, and please describe your character's thoughts and surroundings. It's much more entertaining that way.
3) You must post at least once a day, unless you have told Everscale otherwise.
4) One character per person.
5) Romance is encouraged, but nothing too explicit.
6) Yes, this is a shonen ai roleplay. Boy love. Don't complain. Homophobia will not be tolerated.
7) Swear sparsely. It does not befit a butler to have a foul mouth.
8) Use the character skeleton.
9) Make sure your profiles are good and detailed, or you won't be accepted.
