After killing his father, Lelouch became the 99th Emperor of Britannia with the help of C.C. and Suzaku Kururugi to create the world his late sisters, Euphemia li Britannia, who he killed out of mercy, and Nunnally vi Britannia, who was actually saved by Schneizel after the F.L.E.I.J.A. Incident.

Relationships[]

Suzaku Kururugi[]

Suzaku Kururugi is the first and last true friend Lelouch had ever had. Lelouch trusts and has faith in him more than anyone else (excluding Nunnally) in the world. He is even willing to go down on his knees to beg him to protect Nunnally because Suzaku is the only person he could trust and find help in, despite the fact that they were already enemies at that time. Lelouch was also hurt deeply when Suzaku decided to turn him into the emperor and when he thought Suzaku had betrayed him again in the Kururugi Shrine.

They had many face offs and Lelouch often could not bring himself to hurt Suzaku after finding out that Suzaku is the pilot of Lancelot and tried time and again to get Suzaku to join his side. Suzaku is also the only person aside from Nunnally whom Lelouch is unwilling to use Geass upon--even when he did, he did not order Suzaku to obey him or join his side, but to "live on."

As Suzaku once said, "There is nothing we cannot accomplish together." They are able to complete many impossible missions when they choose to cooperate with each other. The ascension to the throne and the plan to create everlasting peace was the best proof of how strong they could be when working together. Lelouch eventually entrusts Suzaku with everything, including the peace of the world afterwards, and Nunnally.

Suzaku has very mixed feelings for Lelouch. He also sees Lelouch as his best friend but he disagrees with Lelouch's methods. He had suspected Lelouch was Zero before their confrontation but chose to trust his friend, thus he was more disappointed than surprised when he finally discovered the truth of Zero's identity. He also could not forgive Lelouch for killing Euphemia and smearing her name as a mass murderer. He is also furious that Lelouch views people as pawns and how Lelouch had forced him to "live on" when his secret desire is to die and the Geass often forced him to do things he has no desire to.

But after the confrontation at the Kururugi shrine, the explosion of F.L.E.I.J.A. and the encounter with the emperor in the world of C that realize Charles cause Euphemia's tragic actions, and the truth about the SAZ Incident, Suzaku completely changes his views and adopts the same approach and beliefs as Lelouch. That results are what matters, and from then on, like Lelouch, he is willing to achieve the desired results regardless of the means. Thus Suzaku chooses to fight side by side with Lelouch as a faithful knight to create the perfect world.

Nunnally vi Britannia[]

Nunnally is one of Suzaku's closest friends, having known and played together since childhood, Lelouch originally intended Suzaku to become Nunnally's guardian due to his increased activities with the Black Knights only to be swayed by Euphie, which creates a more tragic conflict. When she becomes the Viceroy of Area 11, they become close to each other again. Nunnally later asks Suzaku who called her on the phone and after Suzaku stepped away from her, she realizes that he is the same as Lelouch. After Lelouch and Suzaku declare the world as enemies, her attitude towards Suzaku becomes the same as Lelouch, after being denied the truth of Lelouch's actions but after Nunnally helps Lelouch, Suzaku is happy to see Nunnally again.

Euphemia li Britannia[]

Lelouch and his younger half-sister, Euphemia, were extremely close when they were young, with innuendo stating that Lelouch had a crush on her, and she may have felt the same. When they met up in the present day, it showed that he still cared for her deeply but whether or not he still had the same romantic feelings is unknown.She even persuade him to stop his rebellion and comply with her Special Administrative Zone of Japan after he has vehemently refused it and was determinated to wreck it. However, when he accidentally uses his Geass on her, forcing her to kill the Japanese he had no choice but to kill Euphemia in order to end the massacre. As Lelouch shot her, he states that she was his first love. It was one of the greatest burdens and sins on his soul and something that he was never able to forgive himself for.

Later, in tribute to Euphemia's memory, Lelouch asked Rolo to depose a gray candle labeled with her name in the memorial candle of those who died in the Special Administrative Zone massacre.

C.C.[]

Lelouch and C.C. were often paired as the witch and the warlock, being part of a contract. At the start, the two seem to consider each other nothing more than part of a contract with C.C. giving Geass to Lelouch.

This began to change during the Battle of Narita, when he spoke her true name on her request. Later on, they began to get along, with C.C. often irritating Lelouch with her willful spirit, such as being in places where she would be seen in public. C.C. seems to have no guilt whatsoever when using her contractee's credit card for an endless supply of pizza. She also enjoys teasing him, to which Lelouch would respond by calling her a witch.

As the first person to know what he really desires, C.C. was the closest person Lelouch could share his inner thoughts and turmoil with. C.C. could understand his decisions and motivations, having lived through centuries of war and suffering. C.C. supports him, while making suggestions where she thinks he is wrong.

Their bond seemed to be close enough that when Mao attempted to kidnap C.C. at Clovisland, Lelouch willingly went to rescue her despite not needing to.

By the end of the first season, their connection allowed Lelouch to see some of her past. As Lelouch refused to judge her, C.C. touched and caught up in the moment kissed him. Although Lelouch was rather shocked at this sudden movement to the point of not returning it, he did not mind it and bid her farewell.

In the second season, C.C. kisses him to awaken his memories in the beginning, causing the barriers put up by Charles to be destroyed. When she was about to be granted her wish (to end her immortal life) by Charles, Lelouch stated that he knew her one true wish. He promises her that he would make her true wish come true, and that she would die with a smile on her face. This causes C.C. to seal off her own Code.

When Lelouch finds out that C.C. had lost her memory, he seemed devastated. He treated the amnesiac C.C. more kindly, perhaps sensing how delicate she was at first. He saw her memories and how she came to get her Geass, which gave him a true understanding of her. When he accidentally took his anger out on her, he immediately regretted it and gave her a band-aid. He even ordered pizza for her while she was suffering from amnesia.

While in the Sword of Akasha, Lelouch's bond with her allowed him to sense that C.C. had regained her memories. The two seem to know what the other is thinking, even when they have not communicated.

As she was becoming close to him, C.C. feared that Lelouch would hate her for all she had done. However, Lelouch was instead grateful to her for giving him Geass, as it allowed him to make his wish come true. He also refused to judge her for her past crimes and atrocities she had committed, declaring that if in their contract if she was a witch, he would be a warlock. After taking the throne, Lelouch married C.C. and had a son two years later named Arthur.

Arthur vi Britannia[]

Arthur is Lelouch's and C.C.'s son so of course they care for each other.

Rolo Lamperouge[]

Rolo was Lelouch's foster brother and one of Nunnally's replacement siblings after his memories were altered by Charles. After regaining his memories, Lelouch thought of Rolo as nothing more than a replacement for Nunnally and sought to use him to get his sister back and dispose of him. However, at some point Lelouch started caring for Rolo but after Rolo killed Shirley, Lelouch's hatred towards the boy was increased as a result and lashed out on him after the F.L.E.I.J.A. Incident. When Lelouch was about to be killed by the Black Knights, Rolo saves him by using his Geass to stop the time. However, Rolo's heart was slowly dying as a result of overusing his Geass and had one final conversation with Lelouch. Lelouch honors Rolo's sacrifice by creating the perfect world that he would be proud of.

Kallen Stadtfeld-Kozuki[]

It is easily noted that both have similar backgrounds and ideals. Characters in the series have called them half-breed, Lelouch because his mother was a mere commoner promote to knighthood with the Emperor as a father while Kallen was born to a Japanese mother and Britannian father. Furthermore, both are very close to their siblings. They both have a student persona that was a completely different person from their real personalities as well as their disdain for the aristocracy and discrimination.

Kallen despises Lelouch's student persona, seeing him as an arrogant Britannian student who could not be bothered about the world despite his abilities to make a difference while as Zero she saw him with admiration as a symbol of hope against the Britannian Empire and was willing to lay down her life to protect him.

Lelouch, on the other hand saw Kallen as his most loyal follower and held her in high regard due to her abilities as a Knightmare pilot and fierce loyalty to his cause as she shares the same beliefs naming her Q-1 as his queen on the chessboard. However, he often throws snide comments and jabs at Kallen in her student persona as she had difficulties pretending to be a sickly Britannian when she became emotional. This behavior may have stemmed from their own frustrations with possessing a double life and a desire to converse with someone who shared more of their opinions than the people they usually interacted with not surprisingly due to their similar background.

Despite making protests whenever questioned, Kallen and Lelouch have gone through a number of misinterpreted encounters where they end up in sexually awkward positions or almost kissing each other, becoming one of the major running gags in both Code Geass series.

Although they continued to bicker in their student persona, they grew closer as Black knights as Lelouch often contact her directly and speak in moment of privacy about the war where Kallen declared that she would follow him all the way, leaving Lelouch grateful for her support. Lelouch soon trusts her to the point that he was willing to reveal his identity to her but Kallen declined the offer, cementing their trust.

The major turning point came when Kallen found out about Lelouch's identity when she followed him to Kamine Island after he seemingly abandoned the rebellion. She became confused and heartbroken by his true identity being one made from two conflicting views of him as well as his unbalanced and obsessive behaviour that made him seem like neither Lelouch nor Zero when he faced Suzaku, and left him at the Japanese knight's mercy.

After finding out about Geass from C.C. Kallen became conflicted over her deep loyalty to him as whether it was a product of a Geass command or due to her own feelings. In order to find out, she rejoined the Black knights under C.C. to save Lelouch.

When C.C unlocked his memories and as he took over the operation against the Britannians, Kallen confronted him at gunpoint. Lelouch calmly told her that her loyalty and choices had always been her own but asked if she believed him. In tears, she declared that she wanted to believe that more than anything which made Lelouch guilty for being the source of her sacrifice. However, Kallen stated that she was still angry with him for the lies he told her.

Throughout the rest of the campaign, Kallen began to question which of the two personas did the real Lelouch reflect and tried to keep them as different persons. This led to humorous confrontations between the two where Kallen would switch from being an obedient soldier to snarling and shouting at him depending on his behaviour. At the same time, Lelouch treated her as a mixture of both personas, and ended up making flirtatious comments at her, to her embarrassment.

However, when Lelouch despaired over the notion of fighting Nunnally, Kallen repeatedly tries to speak to him but Lelouch broke his phone and threw it away. Attempting to forget his pain, the former prince tried to take Refrain only to be violently stopped by an angry Kallen. She demanded that he stop fooling around and ask for orders from him, to which a depressed Lelouch asked her to comfort him as a woman, leaning forward to kiss her. While their mutual attractions were clear, Kallen snapped at the last minute and slapped him, not wanting to kiss with only lust and desperation on Lelouch's mind. With tears in her eyes, Kallen screamed at him to be Zero and insisted that he attempt to turn his lie into truth before running away, leaving a shamed Lelouch to regret his actions.

Lelouch finally regains his motivation through his friends including Kallen and arrives right in time to save them from a Britannian naval attack.

During the China Campaign, in a moment of privacy Kallen expressed relief with Lelouch returning to his old self, with her thoughts going to his attempt to kiss. Lelouch, however, startled her and she tumbled on top of him with their faces inches from each other. In the tender moment, Kallen asked what made him return to the Black knights which prompt Lelouch to ask her if she would return with him back to Ashford after the war, though they were comically interrupted by C.C before he could ask why.

As they grew closer, Lelouch seems to consider Kallen as one of his valued possessions and was visibly stunned when Kallen was captured by Xingke and swore to rescue her with his own hands. When he arrived too late, he furiously cursing Suzaku for taking away everything that had "belonged to him." Kallen was touched by his oath to save her and waited calmly for him to come for her.

During her captivity, Kallen learnt more of Lelouch from Nunnally in which she learnt of Lelouch's pasts and how he resembled her own brother, while also noticing photos of a happy Lelouch with his friends, as seen in a photo book of Suzaku's Gino Weinberg gave her; this caused her to realize that the real Lelouch was a conflicted yet genuinely nice person. She had little time to consider it as the Battle of Tokoyo Settlement started with Sayoko rescuing her.

After Nunnally's apparent death in the FLEIJA blast, Kallen was heartbroken over Lelouch's pleas to find Nunnally. She attempts to comfort Lelouch when she came back and as they share their relief in each other's safety she presumably attempted to confess to him, but before she could the Black Knights began their coup. Kallen attempted to defend him, stating that they were being one-sided. When both realised that the Black knights were willing to kill them, Kallen decided to remain with him even till death. Lelouch, thinking that he had lost C.C. whose memories were gone, Shirley and his sister, was unwilling to let her die as well and lied saying that she was just a chess piece, specifically a knight, and this provoked her to walk away from him out of range. Even as a tearing Kallen left, Lelouch whispered her to live on within earshot. Shocked, she tried to turn around and talk to him about it, as well as continue defending him, but Rolo Lamperouge took him away before she could, leaving her craving to get a response from Lelouch as to what he truly felt.

After Lelouch took over Britannia, the two met once again with Kallen as his escort to the UFN council where Lelouch, initially pretending to have never met Kallen, decided to take the long way so they would have a moment for themselves. Kallen, confused with his actions as Emperor and the suspicions of the Black knights attempted to open up Lelouch, recalling their times together. Lelouch then told her about her goals before the two kissed and Lelouch left for the meeting.

After the meeting and the subsequent destruction of Pendragon, Kallen joined Lelouch, much to the the other Black Knights' dismay only to be allowed by Xingke after he took away the remaining Black Knights' ranks. After the Battle at Mt. Fuji, Kallen became the Knight of Two.

Powers and Abilities[]

Powers[]

  • Seal of Absolute Obedience: Lelouch's Geass, bestowed upon him by C.C., gives him "The Seal of Absolute Obedience", allowing him to plant commands within a person's mind upon eye contact in a manner comparable to hypnosis. Activation of his Geass is visually represented by the manifestation of a Geass sigil in his left eye. Commands dictated in this state are written into the minds of the designated targets once the sigil projects from his eye to theirs. Lelouch could initially toggle Geass activation at will, but subsequently lost this control and suffered from an affliction known as "runaway Geass" near the end of the first series. In the second season, C.C. gives Lelouch a contact lens that blocks his Geass, but indicates that his Geass will eventually grow powerful enough to render it ineffective. Lelouch's Geass evolves to cover both of his eyes in episode 21 as a result of pushing his Geass to the limit, trying to command C's World, the collective unconscious of mankind itself. He receives a second contact lens to cover it later. Of all the Geass abilities in the series, Lelouch's has been explored the most, and also seems to have the most restrictions and side effects of any Geass introduced.

Abilities[]

  • Genius-Level Intellect: Lelouch is considered one of the most smartest human beings alive only rivaled by Schneizel el Britannia, Charles zi Britannia, Lloyd Asplund, and Nina Einstein. What he lacks in strength, he makes up for it with his mind.
  • Master Tactician: He has a record of winning a game in 8 minutes and 32 seconds in Chess. However, the one person that he was unable to defeat in a chess game was his older brother, Schneizel. As a teenager, he utilized his masterful skills in real combat, leading a small band of terrorists to victory against overwhelming odds. The series repeatedly demonstrates Lelouch's mental acuity; ranging from his superb skill in playing chess, to an incident in Stage 14, when Mao says C.C.'s name, Lelouch instantly comes up with fourteen different possibilities for Mao's identity - including the correct one. His intellect is also shown when he was able to program the F.L.E.I.J.A. countermeasure in 19 seconds typing at an incredibly fast speed.
  • Master Orator: He could manipulate people and factions with well-spoken speeches and clever deceptions. His charisma and finesse is what makes Lelouch, in his 'Zero' or 'Emperor' persona, appealing to the public.

Knightmare Frames[]

  • Sutherland
  • Burai
  • Gawain
  • Shinkirō
  • Lancelot (Super Robot Wars X-Ω)

Trivia[]

  • Lelouch's first personal Knightmare, Gawain, is named for a Knight of the Round Table who Lelouch has a lot in common with. Both are older brothers, are popular with women, and are betrayed by their best friend known as Lancelot. Lancelot killed Gawain's younger brothers like Suzaku was thought to have killed Nunnally. Gawain refused to fight Lancelot until his unarmed brothers were slain, like how Lelouch continually tries to recruit Suzaku and doesn't actively try to harm him until he's been horribly betrayed and Nunnally taken from him.
