Background & Involvement
Keil was the sole child between the union of Lusyne and Cheshire. Although a legitmate Rosenvich by birth, he was never regarded as worthy successor for his family due to his mother’s status.
The reality did not affect him, as he was one who held no affinity to power. Barely jealous of his younger half-brother, Ciel, he cared deeply for the latter instead. He always left the best for Ciel, even if it was to bring disadvantages to his ownself.
In fact, he remained to be one of the nicest people around in Elfelin throughout his lifetime. However, if pushed, he can also show a cruel side of him like any other Rosenvich was capable of.
Sharing the same talent like his aunt, Keil was an excellent painter. He learned the basics from Nesyne before gradually developing his own style. Alternatively, he had shown the tendencies of gifting his artworks to Meryt Nilevych whenever she took liking to any of them.
Similar to Ciel, he was childhood friends with Meryt Nilevych. A natural mediator, he kept the bond close between the three for many years, until that tragedy. To save both Ciel and Meryt, he volunteered to be sacrificed, and was ultimately killed.
Unknowingly behind everyone’s back, Ciel saved him. He survived, but fell into deep coma for five years straight. The truth was kept hidden from the outside world by Ciel, and even Meryt was not aware of it.
Keil’s eventual meet with Meryt was when he was helping Ur Ramses in saving her from Ciel’s hands. It was for the obvious reason. Keil never approved Ciel’s possessive acts on Meryt. Unlike Ciel, he saw no love in Ciel’s actions and exhorted the latter to let her go for the better. He did succeed.
It was later own revealed that Keil had love Meryt since the start, and he clearly knew she shared the same feelings for him when they were young. He pretended to not know, as he also noticed Ciel had a crush on her too.
He reasoned his selfless behaviour with, despite he loved Meryt, his love for his younger brother was far stronger. He was the only ally and family member of Ciel, and the last thing he wanted to do was to hurt Ciel.
When she went away from their world, Keil lend a hand to Ciel in raising the new addition to their family. He purposely named his niece as Meryt, in the memory of the girl both Ciel and he loved.
Additionally, Keil returned to Elfelin in resuming his role as an Elder. He spent the rest of his days faithfully assisting Ciel in reducing the latter’s workload. After all, the two of them understood the dire condition of their own body as Mai’s descendants.
He managed to outlive his younger brother in his later years, only by the slightest. His health deteriorated greatly after Ciel’s death, especially with his niece’s stunt on wanting to murder Meryt Nilevych.
On a brighter note, it was that faithful event that led him to be able to see Meryt Nilevych once more. Privately, he was asked by her about his remaining lifespan, to which he kindly responded he may have lesser than a year to live.

- (To Ceil Rosenvich about Meryt Nilevych) “Just how long do you want to lull yourself with the empty shell of hers?”
- (To Meryt Nilevych) “Why the forlorn face, my fine lady?”
- (To Meryt Nilevych) “Tomorrow, if I am unlucky. It may be a month, or two months. If I am really fortunate, I will have another year, or more.”
