The Pandora Hearts manga and anime series features an extensive cast of fictional characters created by Jun Mochizuki. The series revolves around Oz, heir to the Vessalius Dukedom, who has just turned fifteen. His life is rich and carefree, darkened only by the constant absence of his father. At his coming-of-age ceremony, everything changes. For no reason that he can discern, Oz is cast into the prison known as the "Abyss", only to be saved by a girl known as Alice, the Bloodstained Black Rabbit. The mystery there begins as Oz unravels the mystery behind Alice, the Abyss and the strange organization known as "Pandora". The Vessalius Dukedom is one of the Four Great Dukedoms and wields one of four black-winged Chains known as Gryphon. Before the tragedy of Sablier, the Vessalius were low-ranking viscounts. The family's fame and prestige was brought about by Jack Vessalius - third (and illegitimate) son of the viscount at the time - after his heroic actions during the tragedy of Sablier. Oz Vessalius (オズ＝ベザリウス, Ozu Bezariusu) is the fifteen-year-old protagonist. He has blond hair and green eyes. He is from the prestigious Vessalius family. His father, Zai, is the reigning lord. His mother was killed by the Nightray family; despite this, he retains a bright, optimistic, and energetic personality.
However, he discovered that his father hated him to the point of not wanting to touch him.
The story of Pandora Hearts begins when Oz turns fifteen. During the ceremony to celebrate his legal adulthood, Oz is dragged into the Abyss for the 'sin of his existence'. There, he meets a young girl named Alice who turns out to be a Chain - a monster born in the Abyss. Oz makes a contract with her so they can both escape the abyss. Upon returning to the real world, he discovers that 10 years have passed. In order to find out what exactly his 'sin' is, he decides to work under Xerxes Break as part of Pandora. During this, it is shown that when he was young, he worked hard to gain praise and recognition from his father. However, he discovered that his father hated him to the point of not wanting to touch him. After experiencing this, Oz began to think that there is no guaranteed thing in the world. He thought of himself as weak. He decided that, in order to protect people, he should at least remain an obedient child and let harm come his way. After traveling into the Cheshire Cat's lair, Oz meets Jack Vessalius and becomes his 'medium'. Jack eventually speaks at Pandora's headquarters and the public hail Oz as a 'hero'. Oz finds that he can swap control of his body with Jack if he calls hard enough and may sometimes even see snippets of Jack's memories. According to himself he is quite skilled with the sword, particularly in self-defense.
He once wished to marry Sharon when they first met.
However, he has very little real experience in fighting. Oz likes cute, younger girls and flirts with them frequently. He once wished to marry Sharon when they first met. Oz, himself, thinks of Alice as his precious someone, calling her his "sun". He believes that Alice is the reason that he can still smile. Jack tells Oz that he has the "right" or "prerequisite" over Alice's powers and that a seal won't restrain Alice's powers any longer, giving Oz the ability to use B-Rabbit's power, even without Alice's permission or Gil's help. Oz proves it when he is able to stop Alice's B-Rabbit's power temporarily on his own; another instance is when Oz is almost kidnapped by the Baskervilles at Lutwidge, and a more recent one is when he was able to summon B-Rabbit's scythe to fight his assailants in Sablier's illusion, despite the fact he had never used a scythe before. According to Lotti, Oz was supposed to be the vessel for the sake of hiding the existence of Jack Vessalius and should the vessel be broken, Jack's existence will be brought to light and the further warping of Abyss's will, who seeks him, will most probably interfere with the real world.
Alice first appears as a chain that persuades Oz to form a contract with her in the Abyss.
Later, Oz reunites with Gilbert and immediately meets with the person behind Oz's homicidal nature: Zai Vessalius, his father. Oz had a desire to destroy everything until Alice stopped him. According to Break, Oz may not be the real Oz Vessalius, as during his birth, Oz's father took him away: it is suspected he might have done something to him or exchanged him with another baby. This is proven true when it is revealed that his body was Jack's all along, and that he (Oz) is the true B-rabbit. In the anime, Oz is revealed to be the reincarnation of Jack Vessalius. Alice (アリス, Arisu) is the heroine of the story with a height of 150 cm. Alice first appears as a chain that persuades Oz to form a contract with her in the Abyss. In fact, she is actually the infamous B-Rabbit (Blood-stained Black Rabbit), the most powerful chain in the Abyss.
You are my manservant, and as a manservant, what were you thinking, leaving me behind!
Alice's goal is to find her lost memories, which plays a major role in the story. In human form, Alice has long dark brown hair with two side plaits. She has a huge appetite and loves meat especially. She is hotheaded and loud-spoken and says what she thinks without regard to the consequences. Despite this, she has a soft side, especially when Oz is involved. She hates when Oz leaves her alone, but to hide it she usually says, "I'm in a contract with you. You are my manservant, and as a manservant, what were you thinking, leaving me behind!?" or she just hits Oz and says, "Shut up". It also appears that she cares for Oz's well-being, that she considers his health when using her powers. She bites his cheeks to make him feel better, copying a picture Sharon showed her thinking it was biting instead of a kiss. Also, in episode 20, she tells Sharon, who threatens her to tell her what she has on her mind, that she felt left out and ignored when Oz went to talk with Break without her and when he was happy to see his sister. Alice senses Oz is upset. Thinking that the biting was still a kiss (sort of), she bites him several times, pushing him to the floor to bite his ear that begins to bleed.
In her memories we see Jack Vessalius, the hero of 100 years ago.
She was in Sablier when the city was dragged into the Abyss. Alice wanted to forget about that event, because it was a very painful one. In her memories we see Jack Vessalius, the hero of 100 years ago. It is revealed that she's actually Lacie's daughter. Lacie was impregnated by Levi Baskerville before being cast into the Abyss as a sacrifice for the ceremony of the new 'Glen' and Levi's experiment, to gain the power of the Abyss through a vessel, Lacie's child. While in the Abyss, Lacie gave birth to 'twins', Alice and Alice (Also referred to Alyss by fans to avoid confusion, though it is not official) who would be merged with the Core of the Abyss and called The Will of the Abyss by Levi. Alice is not the real B-Rabbit; Oz is the true B-Rabbit and was originally a stuffed animal that Alice was very close to and kept when imprisoned. After Jack began the Tragedy of Sablier he came to Alice's tower to ask the Intention of the Abyss for more power. Alice refuses to allow Jack and the Intention to destroy the world and sever the chains and thus commits suicide stabbing herself with a pair of scissors. She only is "alive" in the present timeline because her body fused with B-Rabbit's power, thus "becoming" B-Rabbit.
In the anime, she is shown to have held a deeply affectionate bond with Jack and was heartbroken when they got separated before her death at the hands of Vincent. Jack Vessalius (ジャック＝ベザリウス, Jakku Bezariusu) is the 'hero' of 100 years ago and the one who 'defeated' Glen Baskerville. It was he who caused the Tragedy of Salbier making him the main antagonist. He has some sort of connection with Alice's memories. Jack looks like a grown-up Oz with a long plait. His personality is also similar; Like Oz, he does things at his own pace and is loud and cheerful. Oz and Gilbert meet him when they are taken to the Cheshire Cat's dimension. He is currently residing in Oz's body and can 'possess' Oz and speak through him. When in control, Jack also has full control of Alice's chain power. Jack was the third son of the Vessalius family who was, before the Tragedy of Sablier, a third-rate noble family. Thus, with no expectations from his family, he acted quite freely: always smiling, joking and flirting with girls. Jack was also a self-proclaimed music box maker. His best friend at that time was Glen Baskerville. Jack crafted a pocket watch for him and Glen wrote the melody, titled "Lacie".
The pocket watch's melody was said to be a song that Lacie always sang to herself. Later, Glen tried to kill Jack because he started the Tragedy of Sablier (because he believed that without Lacie, there was no meaning to life) Although hailed as a hero for this act, Jack did not want to kill his best friend. But it was revealed, that it was Glen who actually wrote this. He also shows true anger when Lottie suggested that he killed Glen to gain fame and glory. Jack reveals, through his speech when he first possesses Oz, that Glen is still living. Despite this, he says to the Baskervilles that if they wish to repeat the past, he will once again turn his body into a blade that will destroy the Death Gods. It seems that all of the things he has said were all lies. During Jack's flashback he was told by Lacie to become a prostitute to which he remarked, 'It is a great sin! Jack deeply loved Lacie and after she was cast into the Abyss as a sacrifice for Levi Baskerville's experiment, he came to loath the Baskervilles. When Jack learned that Lacie had given birth to a daughter (Alice) while in the Abyss, who was now a 'prisoner' of the Baskervilles, he swore to protect her.
However, Jack only cared and protected Alice because she served as a conduit for Jack to communicate with the Will of the Abyss. Jack is not trying to possess Oz's body; the body has always been Jacks. Oz is revealed to be the true B-Rabbit, a chain created by the Will of the Abyss at Jack's request, who possesses the power to sever all the chains keeping the world from plunging into the Abyss. This has always been Jack's true intention, to bring the world that Lacie loved to the Abyss, even though she was more or less destroyed by the darkness already, because he loved her. Later on he hated her, for meeting him and giving him hope, but realized after faking so many emotions after many years, he loved the fact he knew he could actually feel an emotion, even if it was hate. After meeting the Will of the Ayss he confessed his true intentions and White Alice was able to see that he had Black and White Jack after making a deal with Oz realized that he was wrong and after this discovered that he was a lonely person. He also discovered the true form of the Abyss realizing that it was Lacie's true wish eventuality got over his hatred of her and giving up his body to the core after he died. In the anime, he is shown to have had a deep bond with Alice and was heartbroken when they were forced to separate before her eventual murder.
