130 years after Ciel Phantomhive entered into a pact with flawless demon butler Sebastian Michaelis, a female descendent of the Phantomhive family named Shiori Genpo poses as a boy named “Kiyoharu” in order to act as heir.

The world is now divided between east and west, with Shiori working as an agent of the Western Queen. Shiori receives a mission to investigate a series of missing females and mysterious deaths in which the victims were mummified, but after receiving a curious “black invitation”, she winds up in over her head and in desperate need of Sebastian’s assistance.
