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.

->''"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.
