Ciel
Tsukihime (2021)

Ciel (シエル, Shieru?) is the seventh member of the Burial Agency of the Holy Church. Formerly an incarnation of Michael Roa Valdamjong, she goes undercover at Souya's high school, acting as Shiki Tohno's senior. She is one of the six heroines of Tsukihime -A piece of blue glass moon-, Tsukihime -The other side of red garden-, and the Tsukihime Remake series.

Profile[]

Background[]

Birth name: Elesia (エレイシア, Ereishia?). A girl born in the French countryside to a baker's family.[1][3][4] She lived happily, helping her father at his bakery and attending school.[3] Due to a high degree of magical potential, she was born as Michael Roa Valdamjong's seventeenth incarnation. His sixteenth was destroyed by Arcueid Brunestud before he had a chance to find a family bloodline with both wealth and power. He could only fulfill the requirement that his next incarnation would have physical potential, so he was born into a normal family without any social standing. Her body instead had extremely high magical potential, which is the closest in power to his original body in all of his incarnations.[3]

Everything changed around her twelfth birthday, when Roa finally began to manifest, causing her to become a vampire.[1][3] She started to experience abnormal violent urges, but always kept them in check. She wanted to snap the necks of her friends for no reason, and the sight of a beggar on the road was so funny that she wanted to stab him with a knife. She tried her best to resist the impulses by locking herself away in her room. It was not the same as possession, as she equated the feelings to those normal small destructive passions that all humans possess solidified inside her mind. She knew something terrible would happen if she were to let them take over, so she tried not to see anyone or do anything to avoid hating anyone and bring about her feelings.[3]

It became too much to bear, so she shut herself into her room. Locking herself away was a large mistake because that gave time for her mind to grind away and finally surpass its limits. She became completely replaced with Roa after that point, but still felt his actions as her own. With only the thought of her thirstiness, she left her room for the first time in months, and brining smiles to her her worried parents, as they rushed to welcome her, bit into their necks and sucked their blood.[3] Roa greatly enjoyed the amount of power the body gave him. Due to her having no social standing, it took him time to take over, and it was difficult to do so without having people notice.[3]

Roa in Ciel's body took over her village, and eventually become a center figure of what would be called the French Incident.[1][3][4] He committed various atrocities to the citizens as he enjoyed using a body with true power, but it was not as wild as previous times and without as much blood spilled. The will of the incarnation still comes from the body, so she still had some power over his actions. She took the townspeople she loved one by one, and she humiliated and mutilated their souls. She figured that she would go insane, but also figured that insanity would cause her to commit even more sins than before. She tried to minimize the damage in order to persevere and keep her sanity. It only took a month before she was in full control of them and playing with their lives however she wished.[3][4] Her only solace was that it ended quickly. After the town was completely under Roa's control, he was inevitably hunted down by Arcueid. She found him on a night with a crimson moon, and he was killed after their fight.[3][4] But after being defeated by Arcueid, Roa transferred to the next incarnation and the corpse taken by the Holy Church to Curia revived as Elesia, with her original personality without any of Roa's influence, while Roa moved on to his next incarnation, SHIKI Tohno.[1][3][4]

The girl, now immortal for as long as Roa is alive, discarded her name, was baptized as Ciel, and joined the Church as a vampire hunter. In order to one day die as a human.[3][4] She was personally recruited into the Burial Agency by the Director of it, Narbareck.[4] She became an Executor at the age of only 13 due to her unique form of immortality and knowledge obtained from Roa. According to Noel, she once spent an entire year lurking in the sewer of a European city just to kill a single vampire. The vampire had the ability to monitor the entire city as if it was its own body, allowing it to monitor for any intruders, but had trouble locating people in the sewers due to how filthy they were. Ciel waited until she had an opportunity to attack it, managing to make the kill after the vampire had eliminated a group of other Executors who were sent to kill it, then attacking it from below when it wasn't expecting it. Killing vampires is all she is good at, and all she has done for every single day since she joined the Church.[5]

Ciel holds the seventh seat in the Burial Agency, along with the codename "Bow" (弓, yumi?).[6] Before the events of Tsukihime, Ciel defeated and killed three of the Twenty-seven Dead Apostle Ancestors; the 7th Einnashe, the 22nd Chromclay Petastructure and the 25th Be'ze.[7][8][9][10][11] She currently possesses Einnashe, Be'ze and Chromclay's Idea Blood, and utilizing them to facilitate unique magecraft.[9][10][12][11] Noel is her pupil, who she had taken in as a student five years earlier after she had run afoul of a bishop.

Sensing Roa's reincarnation, Ciel assigned herself alone to the town of Souya to punish him. She lives a double life, steadily getting rid of the constantly proliferating vampires by night, and infiltrating a school by day to investigate and observe her Roa body candidate, Shiki Tohno, eldest son of the Tohno family. Despite her suspicions about the assignment of her pupil Noel, she tries to use Shiki to seal and/or destroy Roa, but things don't go as planned.[1]

Appearance[]

She looks about 16-18.[1] In Melty Blood: Type Lumina, Vlov Arkhangel mentions that she looks a lot like his 8th wife.

Personality[]

She's poses as upperclassman in Shiki's school but is actually a Holy Church Executor who came to Souya after Roa. The people of the Church call her by the pejorative name Quinze. Although she explains their secrets to Shiki as he gets involved in the situation, the mystery woman doesn't tell him a thing about herself. She's Lawful Good. Extroverted, timid, and active. Ciel has a generally quiet and caring personality. However she's also nosy and curious, and can't leave lazy or depressed people alone.[1]

The character whose personality best fits the big sister archetype. She takes cares of people and does anything they ask. She's satisfied with her class representative-like position... but, things get different if she grows affectionate to the person she's helping. Her teasing can get mean-spirited. Maybe she just likes troubling her loved ones.[1]

However, that's all just the base Ciel. She uses a different persona as an Executor, so she can become a cold-blooded machine to fulfill her objectives if necessary.[1]

Role[]

Tsukihime[]

Ciel is first introduced on his train trip back to Souya as Shiki's upper-classmate, who he apparently became acquainted with just a week earlier, at least according to her. She is carrying a lot of stuff, having apparently been out early in the morning doing volunteer work at the park. Ciel invites Shiki to visit her at the tea ceremony club after school. Ciel and Shiki's excited chatter is interrupted by a blue-haired sharp-looking middle schooler, who chides them for being loud in public. Ciel has some business elsewhere and leaves Shiki at the station to go to school on his own.[13]

At lunch, Shiki walks out into the corridor and meets Ciel. She offers to make up for the mishap at the train, inviting him for lunch. Shiki secures them a seat in next to Arihiko. Supposedly Ciel had at first plans with Arihiko, but dropped it to talk to Shiki. Ciel brings Shiki curry. They small chat until Ciel asks where Shiki lives. He hesitates, but Arihiko spills the beans about his circumstances. Shiki gives in and tells Ciel about his family, and how he is moving today. Arihiko feels bad, and eventually tells Ciel he has to talk to Shiki alone. After she leaves, Arihiko tries to cheer Shiki up about the move.[13]

After school, Shiki is pondering on what to do, and not feeling quite ready to go home, he decides to make good on his promise with Ciel and visits her at the Tea Ceremony club. After going around looking for the place, Shiki finally finds it after consulting a map. Only Ciel can be found in the room. She explains that the Tea Ceremony club was long abandoned and that only recently has she been trying to revive it. Eventually, Ciel asks him about his family again. Shiki says he never felt like he could properly return's the Arima family's love for him. He explains how with his Father now dead, he was called back to the Tohno mansion. The two start spend the rest of the time small-talking until the school starts to close.[13]

Arcueid Route[]

Ciel Route[]

In the Normal End of Ciel's route, when Shiki stabs himself to kill Roa, Ciel sacrifices her own life to keep Shiki from dying from his suicide attempt. It ultimately ends with Shiki training to becoming an Executor in hopes that he can find a way to bring Ciel back to life before he himself dies as well.[14]

In the True End of Ciel's route, Ciel pulls out all the stops to defeat Red Arcueid before she kills Shiki and consumes the city entirely. She first uses up all her magical energy utilizing the Seventh Scripture to snipe Arcueid from afar from minute one. When that fails, now out of juice and having lost one form of the Seventh Scripture, Ciel consumes Vlov's Idea Blood to replenishes her Magical Energy, knowing she would lose some of her humanity in the process, and continues the assault, with both weapons and magecraft, the latter of which she detests using. Finally, she unleashes Calvaria's Star, the apex of human magecraft, which finally destroys Arcueid's Luminous Body and splits the city in half.[12]

Melty Blood[]


Abilities[]

Ciel is a member of the Burial Agency, special Executors meant for the slaying of Dead Apostles, as a failed saint that rivals a whole Assembly of the Eighth Sacrament.[5] She became an Executor at the age of only 13 due to her unique form of immortality and knowledge obtained from Roa.[5] Noel calls her a monster, who has a body more immortal than any vampire.[5] Her body has extremely high physical and magical potential,[3] allowing her to jump to and from the tops of lamp posts, leap from buildings and between rooftops, and carry a person at full sprint without breaking a sweat.

Ciel is a master of disguise, being able to play both the parts of an upper high school student and an Executor. All the more impressively, she can inherit differing personalities traits of each role distinctively.

Combat[]

She can be called almighty in any weapon she uses. She has no true favorites, but guns are the only ones she likes overall. While preferring to utilize combat weapons like swords and guns, she is quite strong as a magus, as it is her actual nature, but she doesn't normally utilize it because of her dislike for resorting to Roa's knowledge. In Type Lumina, Ciel uses a variety of martial arts moves, from kicks and punches to throws and jabs, along with her Black Keys.

Ciel was taught swordplay by Be'ze, being his last disciple. Ciel's technique is superior to Vlov Arkhangel's, however, she loses their fight as a result of Vlov's Principle continually eating into her.[8]

As Powered Ciel (完全武装シエル, Kanzen Busō Shieru?), her main attacks often use weaponry, in the style of "Blaze," "Blade," and "Break," and her heavy armament features both brute force and magical enhancements.[15]

Black Keys[]

Ciel's primary weapon as an Executor are the Black Keys, one of the standard Scriptural Weapons of the Church created from pages of the Bible through Magecraft. While seen as an archaic weapon inferior to modern firearms and more difficult to use than Ash Locks by most Executors, Ciel holds the Black Keys to be one of the most effective tools at her disposal, saying they belong among the "conclusive weapons" that Noi Seonator Granfatima speaks of. She prefers the use of them due to their convenience, with her being able to create as many as she needs on the spot so long as she has the magical energy and carry them around wherever she wants. She also finds them convenient due to being easy to sneak them past airport and border security, and not requiring the heavy maintenance the Seventh Holy Scripture does. They are also more useful during her duties rescuing the victims of vampire attacks, as she can hide them beneath her clothing as to not intimidate scared civilians in the way that carrying a large weapon like the Seventh would.[16]

Ciel utilizes her Black Keys as a primary weapon in conjunction with the Burial Agency's secret martial arts technique known as the Iron Plate Effect, but also makes use of them as a channel for her magecraft, using them to demarcate the boundaries of her barriers and channel spells such as the Cremation Rite and Internment Rite into them in combat.[5][16] She also shows the ability to both create and control large numbers of Black Keys telekinetically. During her fight with Noel, she manifests hundreds of them in midair and commands them to fall like rain in order to destroy the vampirized Noel's undead minions. Her degree of control over them is such that not one weapon missed its target.[16]

Seventh Holy Scripture[]

A treasured holy relic created by the Holy Church to demonstrate the Lord's power, though for a long time there was no one to use it. The embodiment of a miracle crafted by human hands. A conceptual weapon structured into a scripture a thousand years ago by luring a rare phantasmal species still lingering on the surface and forging divine iron by casting the girl who served as a lure into the fires of the furnace.[17][8]

Soul-smashing ー that is, starting with execution, all the possible causes of death that may befall a human are inscribed, while the divine iron's natural frequency chants a baptismal admonition against them.[17][8] While it requires an enormous amount of magical energy, it is viable battle style for Ciel, who has the magical power of a hundred magi.[15]

As an anti-vampire weapons platform it can assume six basic weapon forms, using the horn of a unicorn as the backbone. It can operate as a gunblade form, a bayonetted-form, a segmented-whip greatsword form, and an armour form, while it can also be deployed as a ballista form.[17][8][12] Within the Holy Church's doctrine, there is no concept of cyclical reincarnation. At death, there is only whether one falls to hell or is invited to heaven, depending on one's deeds in life. Under no circumstance is one reborn unto the earth once more. That thing, with such a doctrine cast as its foundation, is a reincarnation denying Holy Scripture. Death by Conviction(Punishment) via pile bunker. In being hit by that, the soul itself disperses.[8]

Each form of the Seventh Holy Scripture is associated with a specific cause of death, with the seven in question being immolation, illness, blood loss, collision, insanity, torture, and conviction. Its form as a sword is associated with blood loss, its form as a rifle is associated with immolation, and its form as a pile bunker is associated with conviction. Ciel is able to combine the different forms together to use the weapon in more unorthodox ways, being seen to combine the rifle, sword, and an unknown weapon associated with collision into a single multi-purpose weapon.[8] She has also being shown to somehow create temporary copies of each weapon form in order to dual-wield in certain attacks, such as wielding the rifle and the sword in each hand, using two identical versions of the rifle, or wielding the sword and a smaller shortsword form.[11] When changing the form of the weapon into a sword, Ciel uses the incantation "In the name of our Lord, come forth, O' third cause of death", and when changing the weapon into a pile bunker, the incantation instead mentions the seventh cause of death.[8] The other forms presumably use a similar incantation.

The weapon is fed with ammunition using pages of sacred scripture, and its output varies depending on which texts are used. When fighting against Roa, Ciel is seen to use scriptures which make reference to the denial of reincarnation, and later changes the scriptures to those from the New Testament relevant to the study of angelologyWP. The weapon can also change the type of physical projectiles it fires, with the options including both "reactive light" manifested by the horn of the unicorn that forms its backbone and depleted uranium shells.[8]

Torture Instrument: Virgin Pain[]

Ciel wearing the "Torture Instrument: Virgin Pain" armour.

A conceptual device repurposed into an armour, it is modelled on an Iron MaidenWP, a torture instrument made for identifying witches. All those who wear the armour cannot take it off until the armour has affirmed whether they're a witch or not either, dying if it does declare them a witch or if they take off the armour early, but at the same time the wearer cannot die until the armour has finished affirming. Ciel can make great use of this armour as her curse will cause her to revive when she dies from the armour's affirmations, and also will revive her when she dies by removing the armour, thus allowing her to reuse it. At the same time, the armour itself would stop her dying from any attacks while it affirms whether she's a witch or not, minimising the number of brief lapses between her dying and reviving.[8][16] She used this armour in the battle against Vlov Arkhangel, the device preventing her from dying against his Principle's near-Absolute Zero temperatures. Although she would have been able survive against his Principle in the end, the temperatures would constantly be killing her over and over again and preventing her from moving or fighting.[8]

Other equipment[]

Ciel's nun outfit that acts as her primary Executor clothing, is an all-purpose, lightly armed armament, with incredible protective abilities. In comparison, the Virgin Pain she used against Vlov is for fights to the death.[16]

Magecraft[]

Ciel is extremely gifted at Magecraft, having by sheer random chance mutated to be born with very powerful magic circuits.[3] It is stated that if the average magi's mana generation was 20, then Ciel's is 5000. Ciel has over twice the amount of magical energy than Clock Tower's record holder McDonell Trambellio Elrod, even if his magical energy regeneration is unparalleled. She also has inherited a variety of spells from Roa's knowledge, such as his Numerology, High Speed Incantation, Simplified Repetitive Incantation, Suggestion, and Necromancy. Due to her past with Roa, she refuses to use any of his magecraft unless absolutely necessary, such as when fighting against Dead Apostle Ancestors or True Ancestors, relying instead on the Sacraments and weaponry she obtained from the Church in normal fights. However, as Roa notes, because she has such incredibly high aptitutde, she never learned the needs to be efficient and precise, as a result, her spells can be incredibly wasteful.[12]

She is highly skilled in the use of Sacraments, having invented a spell known as Tower Ring: Tower of Imprisonment (幽閉塔(タワーリング)?) in order to contain Arcueid. It is a powerful Bounded Field, similar in nature to those used by Noel, that is strong enough to temporarily restrain a Dead Apostle Ancestor. It is conceptually based on the Holy Church's Strasbourg CathedralWP that stood for centuries as the tallest building in the world. It was insufficient to hold back Arcueid, however, forcing Ciel to instead try and use Chromclay's Cathedral Idea Blood instead.[5] During Dead Apostle Noel's Arcade Mode ending in Type Lumina, Ciel uses a Baptism Rite to finish her off.[18]

Ciel disguised as a different high school girl.

She can change her physical appearance, as seen when she takes the form of a different high school girl and can change back to her original appearance by melting away her current appearance.[8] Ciel is also capable of altering and erasing the memories of others, as seen when she takes away Shiki's memories of her.[19] Noel explains that Ciel used her suggestion magecraft to trick Shiki and everyone at school.[16] According to Noel, the amount of magical energy needed to constantly cast suggestion magecraft on as many people as she did at the school is so immense that only she could've done so.[5]

Idea Blood[]

During her fight with Arcueid, Ciel is revealed to be in possession of three Idea Bloods of the Dead Apostle Ancestors she has killed, Be'ze, Einnashe, and Chromclay Petastructure, located in her chest, abdomen, and right hand respectively. She also acquired the Idea Blood of Vlov Arkhangel after killing him, but in order to replenish her magical energy she turned it into a Magical Energy Reactor, at the cost of her humanity and strain upon her body. It only works for a short time; Vlov's Idea Blood is estimated to only last less than 3 minutes before it becomes exhausted. While powered by the Idea Blood, by chanting "Set — Code Galgalim", Ciel is able to complete a ten-count incantation spell repeatedly within a single breath. The result of that spell each time released bolts of lightning with 2 million volts.[12]

She can use one of them, Chromclay's Cathedral, to create a variant of the original's Idea Blood usage,[10][12] though she cannot do the same with the other three; in the case of Vlov's, it is because the foundation of his Idea Blood is not mature enough to create a greater magecraft from it, let alone weave a new one, instead using it as a Magical Energy Reactor.[12] However, she is able to work around Be'ze and Einnashe's by using the Idea Bloods to initiate separate magecrafts that Ciel created.[9][12][11]

Calvaria Galgalim

Calvaria Galgalim: Calvaria's Star (カルヴァリアの星(カルヴァリア・ガルガリン)?): An angelic wheel deployed in the stratosphere, blazing with focused sunlight. A reflector created with magecraft. The 50km long, 10km wide blade of light beaming towards the surface can be compared to an aurora possessing mass, or a guillotine of light. It is greater magecraft that Ciel came up with after defeating the Ancestor who was her sword mentor; apparently she uses his Idea Blood to initiate it. After firing at full power against Arcueid the remaining magical energy was used to fire one last shot, and it was this move that turned the tables in the endgame.[9][12] It takes 3 minutes to deploy which is the spell's main disadvantage, however in terms of Mystery it is on the same level as Excalibur, though its usage is very different.[20]

Cathedral

Gothic Fort: Cathedral (大聖堂(ゴチックフォート)?): A phase-transforming, isolation-type Bounded Field developed to contain Rank IX Dead Apostles. It originally belonged to the Ancestor signifying kingdom, and was a wall with a 30km diameter that isolated everything it enclosed from the outside world. Compared to the original, Ciel's version is a conceptual barrier that can only contain a single instance or kind of object. On the other hand, it possesses a space distortion function that the original lacked, allowing the user to alter the size of the space within at will. Ciel states that depending on how you use it, it can become the greatest weapon. As this Greater Magecraft demands a special sort of magical energy to be used, it cannot easily be used repeatedly.[10][8][5] Ciel is able to use it twice before she needs to replenish the "restricted magical energy" from the idea blood, which isn't easily done.[16]

« Emissary of Heaven, Crucifixion Reverb. Leaves of Steel, Waves of Iron. Idea Blood Number Seven, Forest of Einnashe. Blossom forth, Altar of the Grove! Strike not a fatal blow, but keep our foe alive in never-ending pain! »

(Ciel's incantation to activate Einnashe’s Idea Blood)

Ciel also has a greater magecraft spell derived from Einnashe's Idea Blood known as Bell Tower due to obtaining their Idea Blood after defeating them. The full functions of Bell Tower are unknown, but Ciel is able to use it to inflict never-ending pain upon an enemy.[11]

Immortality[]

Ciel possess a unique form of immortality that has her live as long as Roa is alive. The reason Ciel originally revives after her body has been slain by Arcueid and been abandoned by Roa's soul has to do with her magical potential. Her body's power of regeneration is so exceptional that she will always revive. After her body revived in such a fashion, the World, recognizing her soul as Roa, caused a contradiction to form. While she lived as a unique person for her first twelve years, she was a human born as Roa. She is herself, but she is also Roa because the name of her soul is Roa according to the world.[1][16]

She has gained a form of immortality due to the contradiction, always reverting her to her original state no matter the damage, whether it is lethal or not. She cannot age, so she cannot die of old age. Even if she is incinerated to ashes, time will reverse her to her original state. She is not able to die under any circumstance, meaning that she was able to be killed every moment of an entire month without a single negative consequence to her body.

It is not healing or regeneration, but more like any wounds caused to her are "rewound." After cutting her neck, blood sprays everywhere, but within a moment, the wound and all of the blood are gone, returned to how it was before as if being rewound like a video. Even pools of blood are instantly reverted, leaving no trace of having existed, and her heart will start to beat again even with a sword through her brain. The ability does not remove foreign objects impaling her, so she will still be trapped in place even if they cannot kill her. While it is useful in battle, it does not allow her to compete with Arcueid in direct combat. Though she cannot die, Arcueid can kill her repeatedly to keep her from retaliating.

Development[]

Conception and creation[]

Takashi Takeuchi states that while Ciel is the Tsukihime heroine with the biggest variety of outfits, she isn’t particularly fashionable, which fits with her unaffected and sincere personality. She doesn’t stop getting into battle after battle, to the point it feels like all of her CGs are fight scenes. He made her more sprites in cute poses to compensate that.[1]

Takeuchi states that Ciel-sensei is mostly identical to the Ciel in the main story, but he drew her a bit older. He also made a military instructor outfit for the more rigorous lessons.[2]

    Comment from the illustrator: One of the main heroines in this game. Arc’s narrative foil. While she’s the Tsukihime heroine with the biggest variety of outfits, she isn’t particularly fashionable, which fits with her unaffected and sincere personality. She doesn’t stop getting into battle after battle, to the point it feels like all of her CGs are fight scenes. I made her more sprites in cute poses to compensate that.

    Explanation: Birth name: Elesia. A girl born in the French countryside. Being chosen as Roa's new body caused her to awaken at age 12, become a vampire, take over her village, and eventually become a center figure of what would be called the French Incident. But after being defeated by Arcueid, Roa transferred to the next incarnation and the corpse taken to the Curia revived as Elesia. The girl, now immortal for as long as Roa is alive, discarded her name, was baptized as Ciel, and joined the Church as a vampire hunter. In order to one day die as a human.

    Sensing Roa's reincarnation, Ciel assigned herself alone to Souya town to punish him. She lives a double life, steadily getting rid of the constantly proliferating vampires by night, and infiltrating a school by day to investigate and observe her Roa body candidate, Toono Shiki, eldest son of the Toono family. Despite her suspicions about the assignment of her pupil Noel, she tries to use Shiki to seal and/or destroy Roa, but things don't go as planned.

    One of the story's heroines. She looks about 16-18. She's poses as upperclassman in Shiki's school but is actually a Holy Church Executor who came to Souya after Roa. The people of the Church call her by the pejorative name Quinze. Although she explains their secrets to Shiki as he gets involved in the situation, the mystery woman doesn't tell him a thing about herself. She's Lawful Good. Extroverted, timid, and active. Has a generally quiet and caring personality. However she's also nosy and curious, and can't leave lazy or depressed people alone.

    The character whose personality best fits the big sister archetype. She takes cares of people and does anything they ask. She's satisfied with her class representative-like position... but, things get different if she grows affectionate to the person she's helping. Her teasing can get mean-spirited. Maybe she just likes troubling her loved ones.

    However, that's all just the base Ciel. She uses a different persona as an Executor, so she can become a cold-blooded machine to fulfill her objectives if necessary.

    COMMENT from STAFF
    本作で描かれるもう一人のヒロインであり、アルクと対を成すフションのメインヒロイン。
    当分のは1月中一番ながら、決してファッショナブルというわけではない所も、な女らしい。とにかくバトルにつドバトルで、イベントカットのほとんどがシーンではないかと思う。その分、立ちぬは可愛いポーズをしてやしました。(武内崇)


    EXPLANATION
    本名をエレイシア。フランスの片田舎に生まれた少女。転生体としてロアに選ばれたことで12歳の頃に覚醒、吸血鬼となって町の住人を支配下におき、後にフランス事変と呼ばれる戦いの中心人物となる。
    だが、アルクェイドに倒されたロアは次の転生先に移り、法王庁に連ばれた遺体はエレイシアとして蘇生をはたした。
    ロアが生きている限り死なない存在になった少女はその名を捨て、シエルという洗礼名をもって吸血鬼狩りの一員に加わる事となる。いつか人間として死ぬために。

    ロアの転生を感知したシエルは、処罰を行うため単独で総耶の街へと赴任してくる。夜は着々と増え続けている吸血鬼たちの処理をこなし、昼はロアの転生体候補である遠野家の長男、遠野志貴の調査と監視の為、生徒として学校に潜り込むという二重生活を送る事となった。
    弟子であるノエルが赴任してきた事に違和感を覚えつつ、ロアを封する為、志貴を利用しようとするが・・・・・・。

    本編のヒロイン。外見年齢は16〜18才ほど。志貴の通う高校の上級生だが、正体はロアを追って総耶にやってきた聖堂教会の代行者。教会の人間からは戒めをこめて「キャーンズ」とも呼ばれている。事態に巻き込まれた志貴に裏事情を説明してくれるものの、彼女自身については何ひとつ教えてくれない謎の人物。
    秩序・善。外向的、弱気、能動的。基本は穏やかでおとなしい性格。が、世話好きで、だらしない人や落ち込んでいる人を放っておけず、つい口をはさんでしまう。

    性格的には一番のお姉さんキャラ。なんでもしてくれるし、面倒をみてくれる。シエル本人もそういう委員長的な位置付けに満足している・・・・
    のだが、その相手に愛情を持ってしまうと話は違ってくる。また、いたずら心からちょっとしたイジワルをする事も。好きな相手を困らせるのが好きなだけかもしれない。

    ただし、それはあくまで"素"のシエルの性格。
    今の彼女は代行者としての自分を作っているので、必要とあらば冷徹な機械となって目的を遂行する。

    Comment from the illustrator: Our reliable instructor from the hint segment. The bonus segments were produced all in one go after the main product was complete… True Type-Moon style right there. This makes this design my most recent work. She’s mostly identical to the Ciel in the main story, but I drew her a bit older. I also made a military instructor outfit for the more rigorous lessons.

    COMMENT from STAFF
    我らがお助けコーナーの頼れる教官。
    おまけコーナーは、一通りの制作が完了してから、ノリでー気に制作する・・・というのがTYPE-MOONの流腹であり、しかるに絵やデザインとしては本作の中で一番新しいものとなります。本編のシエルとほぼ変わっていないですが、すこしだけ歳を重ねたイメージで描いています。軍隊の女性教官みたいな服装でスパルタ指導を行うシエル先生も見てみたかった。(武内崇)

    Burial Agency
    A secret division of the Holy Church, an organisation of Europe's prominent religion whose name means "universal".

    It comprises seven militants called 'executors' after their intended role to "execute the Lord's teachings as His proxy". Its extraterritoriality within the Church precludes the attainment of power and in return affords it freedom from authority. A walking armoury; a security force consisting of a mere handful of people. They are in charge of exterminating the "inhuman things" that never show themselves, which the Church condemned as heresies — vampires.

    Ciel holds the seventh seat in the Burial Agency, along with the codename "Bow".

    埋葬機関
    普遍的という名を掲げた欧州の一大宗教組織^聖堂教会、が擁する機密部門。
    七人の戦闘員によって構成されており、『主の教えを人の手で代行する』という役割を与えられた彼らは代行者と呼称される。
    権力に近寄れないかわりに権力に縛られない、教会の中の治外法権。動く武器庫。ごく少数で組織された公安警察。決して表に出てくる事はなく、教会から異端と認定された人間でないモノ⸺吸血鬼の殲滅を主務としている。
    シエルはこの埋葬機関の第七位であ弓、の称号を持つ。

  7. [v] Tsukihime Material I - GLOSSARY: The Twenty-seven Dead Apostle Ancestors, p.100

    The Twenty-seven Dead Apostle Ancestors
    The 27 individuals who are the apex of Dead Apostles. It is a title that represents their way of being. Though exceptions like the "League of the Age of Gods" of the five old-timers do exist, each is said to be fundamentally individualistic, while not all of them are enemies of man.

    In their three thousand year long history some seats have emptied, and apart from those six that are Offenbaum's - Vlov's parent's - "idea" as well as the ideas of 「ripening」,「castle, therefore kingdom」,「sword」, and then the「melting」and「four limbs」 that are sealed by the Church, the remaining ones whose existence has been verified number twenty-one.

    Though it takes the Holy Church a hundred years from preparation to execution in order to seal a single ancestor, they are thought to have succeeded only twice. Considering this, it's easy to see how irregular Tohno Shiki's defeat of Vlov was.

    死徒二十七祖
    死徒の頂点となる二十七の個体。その在り方を示す呼称。古参の五氏による神代同盟。など一部に例外はあるが、それぞれは基本敵対関係にあるとされ、また、その全てが人間の敵という訳ではない。
    三千年の歴史の中で空席が生まれており、ヴローヴの親であったアッフェンバウムの原理、「実り」の原理、「城、即ち王国」の原理、「劍」の原理、それと教会に封印された「ける」原理、四肢」の原理の六匹を欠いて、現在様認されている残りは二十一組。
    聖宗教会ではひとりの祖を封印するため、百年単位で借しては実行するが、成功例は二回のみとされる。そうした事例を踏まえて見れば、遠野志夫によるヴローヴ討伐がどれほどのイレギュラーであったかがよくわかる。

    Calvaria's Star
    A halo deployed in the stratosphere, blazing with focused sunlight.

    A reflector created with magecraft. The 50km long, 10km wide blade of light beaming towards the surface can be compared to an aurora possessing mass, or a guillotine of light. It is High Thaumaturgy that Ciel came up with after defeating the Ancestor who was her sword mentor; apparently she uses his Idea Blood to initiate it.

    After firing at full power against Arcueid the remaining magical energy was used to launch one last shot, and it was this move that turned the tables in the endgame.

    カルヴァリアの星
    成層圏に展開し、太陽の光を集束して燃え盛る天使の車輪。魔術によって作られた反射鏡。地上に向けて照射される長さ五十キロ、幅十キロに及ぶ光の刃は質量を持ったオーロラとも、光のギロチンとも例えられる。
    シエルが剣の師匠でもあった祖を倒して編み出した大魔術であり、起動にはそのイデアブラッドが使用されている模様。
    アルクェイドに対してフルパワーで照射された後、残された魔力を用いた一射が行われており、これが最終局面における逆転の一手となった。

    [v] Tsukihime Material I - GLOSSARY: Cathedral (Bounded Field), p.98

    Cathedral (Bounded Field)
    A phase-transforming, isolation-type bounded field developed to contain Rank Ⅸ Dead Apostles.

    It originally belonged to the Ancestor signifying kingdom, and was a wall with a 30km diameter that isolated everything it enclosed from the outside world. Compared to the original, Ciel's version is a conceptual barrier that can only contain a single instance or kind of object.

    On the other hand, it possesses a space distortion function that the original lacked, allowing the user to alter the size of the space within at will. As this High Thaumaturgy demands a special sort of magical energy to be used, it cannot easily be used repeatedly.

    大聖堂(結界)
    IX階梯の死徒を封じ込めるために開発された相転移式隔絶型結界。
    本来は王国を現す祖が所有していたモノで、直径三十キロメー もの壁で囲った内部を外界と遮断するが、シエルの物はオリジナルに対し、対象物を一個ないし一種封じ込める概念的な結界となっている。
    一方でオリジナルにはない空間歪曲の機能が備わっており、内側の空間サイズを任意に変更させる事を可能とする。この大魔術の使用には特殊な魔力が必要となるため、たやすく連発する事はできない。

    Melty Blood: Type Lumina - Powered Ciel - character profile

    Ciel, outfitted to face Dead Apostles of the Twenty-Seven Ancestors class, using the conceptual weapon "Seventh Holy Scripture" broken down into individual causes of death. She makes constant use of the "Seventh Holy Scripture," a millennium-class holy relic. While it drains an enormous amount of magical energy, it is a viable battle style for Ciel, who has the magical power of a hundred magi. Her main attacks often use weaponry, in the style of "Blaze," "Blade," and "Break," and her heavy armament features both brute force and magical enhancements. Perhaps due to her specialization in destroying heretics, she is even more cold and unforgiving than usual. With the incredble firepower of the Seventh Holy Scripture and Idea Blood, Ciel is unrelenting, destroying her enemies down to their very souls.

    [v] Tsukihime Material I - GLOSSARY: Seventh Holy Scripture, p.98-99

    Seventh Holy Scripture
    A treasured holy relic created by the Holy Church to demonstrate the Lord's power, though for a long time there was no one to use it. The embodiment of a miracle crafted by human hands. A conceptual weapon structured into a scripture a thousand years ago by luring a rare phantasmal species still lingering on the surface and forging divine iron by casting the girl who served as a lure into the fires of the furnace.

    Soul-smashing ー that is, starting with execution, all the possible causes of death that may befall a human are inscribed, while the divine iron's natural frequency chants a baptismal admonition against them.

    The combined form of the six armaments - dual guns, bayonet, great sword, armor, and the core - assembled onto the horn of a unicorn is operated as a mobile anti-vampire weapons platform, and when further deployed it can also transform into a ballista.

    第七聖典
    聖堂教会が主の威光を示す為に作りあげ、長らく使い手が不在だった門外不出の聖遺物。
    人為的に作りあ れた奇跡の具現。
    千年前、地上に残っていた稀少な幻想種をおびき寄せ、呼び水となった少女ごと電にくべる事で神鉄を錬成し、教典として組み上げた概念武装。
    魂砕き⸺すなわち断罪死をはじめとした、人間が背負うであろう死の要因があまねく記され、神鉄はその固有震動でこれを戒める洗礼を詠唱し続けている。
    一角馬の角を基本骨子に双銃、銃剣、大剣、甲冑、コアの六つの武装を組み上げた形態は対吸血鬼武装車両として扱われ、更に展開す事によって破城弩弓形態へと変形可能。
