Shinichirō Tamaki (玉城 真一郎, Tamaki Shin'ichirō), twenty-four years old (twenty-five in ''R2''), a is the leader of the second special squadron of the Black Knights. He is a hot-headed and carefree person, quick to cheer others on when not doing the fighting but rash and impulsive when he's on the front lines. His rashness is shown to border on recklessness, as he orders the execution of the Ashford Academy student council against Zero's wishes, though extenuating circumstances prevent his orders from being carried out. He pilots a standard Knightmare Frames during battles, though he rarely lasts long before being forced to eject.

** Fault also of Ohgi what hid Villeta of all. That resulted when the amnesia of Villleta went away she went straight for Ohgi and tried to kill him. This caused chaos in the Black Knights command center, and pulled the guards outside the student council away, which in turn let them try to escape, leaving Nunally to be grabbed by VV, which made Zero abandon his army. Though unintentional, Ohgi's little act of treason on the docks set in motion the ultimate failure of the Black Rebellion.

** Lelouch's chart shows that her loyalty is among the highest in his organization.
** Oddly enough this is inverted in ''Lelouch of the Rebellion'' manga, where she [[spoiler:takes control of the organization after Suzaku's nuking of Tokyo and ends up playing the roles of both [[InspectorJavert Ohgi]] and [[TreacheryCoverup Diethard]] in the Black Knights' betrayal of Lelouch]], contrary to her wiser and more loyal anime self.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: On Lelouch's [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/codegeass/images/9/97/Black_Knights_Core_Members.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20080725053212 chart]] ranking the overall value of the top members of the Black Knights, she was second only to Toudoh despite having no combat ability. (Granted,
most of her time in logistics it comes from full Charisma and leadership instead of frontline battles.
* KilledOffForReal
* MauveShirt: One of the marginally more notable season one casualties.
* SacrificialLamb
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: She has indigo hair.
very high Loyalty, but she still ties for second in Intelligence.)

BrilliantButLazy: You'll be hard pressed to find a time when she's NOT laying down on a sofa, even on the bridge of a ship in the middle of battle.

* MadScientist: Like her rival Lloyd Asplund, Rakshata Chawla is a mostly benign version. Not evil enough to be 100% MadScientist, but too quirky and young to be TheProfessor.
* MotherlyScientist: Thinks of her nightmare frames as her children. In her first scene she tells some black knights that she "gave birth" to one such frame.
* TheNicknamer: She gives Earl Lloyd Asplund his FanNickname "the Earl of Pudding," after his TrademarkFavoriteFood.

-->'''Voiced by''': Creator/JojiNakata (Japanese), Creator/JamiesonPrice (English)

->''"Zero's arrival was like the arrival of a new age unfolding before my eyes!"''

Britannian TV producer who joined the Black Knights not because he believed in their cause but because he worshiped Zero. He was in charge of the Black Knights information, espionage, and public relations.
----
* AntiHero
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Switching to whichever side entertains him the most, apparently.
* TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong: [[spoiler:Is against listening to Schneizel's testimonies and demands towards turning over Zero. The Black Knights end up agreeing with Schneizel anyway, and Diethard has a few bruises to show for his attempt to coax loyalty out of a temporary AWOL Ohgi, who he considers miscast as the role of leader. Predictably, he seizes the opportunity to jump on board with Schneizel, who he finds himself impressed by.]]
* TheFace: Serves as The Black Knight's PR guy.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: You'd be hard pressed to find someone in the series who genuinely likes and/or trusts Diethard. Most of the other Black Knights are wary of him because he's Britannian and Lelouch sees him as a means to an end, nothing more. [[spoiler: It certainly doesn't help that he jumps ship once things start to look bad]].
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor
* {{Jerkass}}
* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler:Shot by a Geass-controlled Schneizel (who he'd turned to), and despite requesting it as a Dying Wish, denied the chance to be ever Geassed by Lelouch, who simply told Diethard he was "not even worth it".]]
* TheMole: He began feeding the Black Knights information on Britannian movements before he joined them officially.
* NominalHero: The only member with little to no regard for righteousness.
* SmugSnake
* TheStoic: Most of the time.
** NotSoStoic: Often when Zero is involved.
* StrawFan: Like Kallen, he pledged undying loyalty to Zero and viewed him as a source of admiration and inspiration. Yet...
* TokenEnemyMinority: He's Britannian and is a high-ranking member of the The Black Knights, the rebellion that's trying to defeat Britannia.
* TokenEvilTeammate: Only the Emperor and he rejoiced when the [[spoiler:Special Administrative Zone]] Massacre began. And Diethard thought that Zero had wanted it.

* LoveMakesYouCrazy: [[FridgeBrilliance One could argue that]] he gets so obsessed with Villetta, that when [[spoiler: she provides evidence that Zero has a supernatural mind control power that he may or may not be using on them]], it possibly caused him to snap over [[spoiler: Zero apparently using them for his own selfish desires [[RevengeBeforeReason and should pay for it]]]].
