well I don't think Black Butler is based off any stories but Sebastian Michaelis himself is probably based off the real life Sébastien Michaëlis from the late 1600's who was a French inquisitor with connections to demons and possession or something

Really? I had no idea until now that Sebastian was based on this real-life French Inquisitor of the same name as his. That is very interesting and fascinating. Thanks for the info :)
