Character Description: Lady Elizabeth Ethel Cordelia Middleford

Lady Elizabeth Ethel Cordelia Middleford is the daughter of Alexis Leon and Frances Middleford, sister of Edward Middleford, and cousin/fiancee of Ciel Phantomhive. She is undoubtedly one of the most cheerful personalities you will ever find in Kuroshitsuji. Ever. Then again her emotions are so powerful it can cause her to erupt into exuberant (if not borderline violent) outbursts which can harm those around her in one way or another. None of this is truly intentional, however. It's just her having fun.

Elizabeth prefers to be called Lizzie by her loved ones, asking her younger cousin Ciel to call her so quite often as she finds it to be too formal. This "adorable" nickname may stem from the affection for cute things, her youthful zest for life, and the fact that even towards servants she retains a cheery and upbeat attitude (for the most part, anyway).

Though the marriage between Lizzie and Ciel was an arranged one, she was happier than anyone else about it, to say the least. She loves Ciel with all her heart and then some, and does anything she can (or just plain desires) to get his attention and make him smile and be happy; just like he did when they played together as children. She loves Ciel so much that she is willing to not wear high-heels (it was what girls her age would be wearing in her days) just to get the same height or lower than Ciel as she was one year older than him.

Subject to violent mood swings, Elizabeth will often end up bringing harm to those closest to her and endangering herself in the process. For example, she breaks Ciel's family ring in a misunderstanding. Ciel gets ready to hit her but gets stopped by Sebastian. Lizzie tries to get Ciel the perfect gift, but Drossel gets her as a new doll instead.

She is not above crying (or faking it) to get what she wants. Lizzie has been known to beg and use just to get her way, whatever it may be. From a dance party to a birthday bash, she'll do what she can. Although as far as anyone's concerned, a great deal of what she does is all for another person she cares for dearly.

So, in all, she is a supposedly selfish girl with a humongous heart of gold. She is also very skilled at sword fighting, which was passed down from her mother.
