[[folder:Akito Hyuga]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/MiyuIrino as an adult and Creator/RyokaYuzuki as a child (Japanese), Creator/MicahSolusod as an adult and Apphia Yu as a child (English)

The protagonist of ''Anime/CodeGeassAkitoTheExiled''. A pilot of the special unit W-0 of the E.U., Akito is amongst the many Japanese who were displaced to Europe following Britannia's invasion, where he is no more welcome to his new European superiors than the Britannian colonialists.
* AbelAndCain: Akito and Shin are brothers and are trying to kill one another.
* AcePilot: The best one in W-0.
* AxCrazy: Clearly - he's reckless to the point of being [[DeathSeeker suicidal]] ([[spoiler:his true goal anyway]]), [[BloodKnight enjoys battle a little too much]], can be very cynical and ruthless, and when he ''isn't'' any of those things, [[EmptyShell he's borderline emotionless]] who tries to hide it with [[DeadpanSnarker sarcasm]]. All that coupled with the fact that [[spoiler:he sees dead people]], all definite signs that he's mentally unstable to a degree. [[spoiler:He eventually grows out of it thanks to his newfound friends.]]
** Elevated in the second episode, where his BloodKnight tendencies rub off on the delinquents (due to his Knightmare's [[PsychicLink BRS system]] syncing their minds to his Geass ). More so than anything else however, is the look he gave Leila when he swore he'd kill his brother. The poor girl was frozen stiff.
* TheBerserker: His battle style when piloting a Knightmare, especially in the [[SuperPrototype Alexander]].
* BloodKnight: Akito seems just a bit ''too'' happy when taking on enemy Knightmares. Granted the fact that he can't die, it's probably the only way for him to vent his frustrations & ''have some fun''.
* BrokenHero: At the start of the series, he still hasn't mentally recovered from [[spoiler:his brother killing the rest of his family and attempting to Geass him to death]].
* CharacterDevelopment: He slowly undergoes this in episode 3, where [[spoiler:reuniting with his brother]] and a few talks (and a fist fight) with his new comrades and Leila seems to change his mindset a bit. He is still a DeathSeeker AxCrazy, but he does appreciate people around him more.
** And in episode 4, [[spoiler:he starts breaking free from his brother's Geass command, becoming a full-fledged hero instead of a brutal AxCrazy killer, and is even willing to befriend a former enemy]].
* CombatPragmatist: When fighting Knightmare to Knightmare, he doesn't aim for the mech. He aims for the cockpit.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindows
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Sole survivor of his family along with his brother Shin. [[spoiler:All of his family was killed by his brother.]]
* DeathSeeker: It was even his final line to his dead comrades. "Akito, why do you fight?" "...So I can die."
* DeadpanSnarker: Always has a dry quip for a situation. It's his defense mechanism, to hide his lack of emotions and psychosis from others.
* Foil: A very, ''very'' strong one to Suzaku.
* HatePlague: His Geass command causes this not just to himself, but to any allies who are synced to his Alexander's BRS, causing them to fight with inhuman ferocity while it lasts.
** HeroicBSOD: People affected by Akito's Geass suffer from mental breakdown after a while.
* HeroicBastard: Technically speaking, Akito counts as one since he wasn't the blood-born son of Shin's father, but the son of another man whom their mother had an affair with.
* TheInsomniac: Akito has trouble sleeping at night because of [[DarkAndTroubledPast his past]].
* ISeeDeadPeople: Akito attributes his capability to do so with an unexplained NearDeathExperience. [[spoiler:However, it may be connected with his brother's Geass command, since Shin also sees dead people.]]
* KnightInSourArmor: Can be ''incredibly'' cynical.
* LadyAndKnight: The Knight to Leila's Lady.
* OfficialCouple: [[spoiler:With Leila at the end of the final episode.]]
* OneManArmy: Can tear through entire Knightmare squads single-handedly.
* ParentalAbandonment: Both his parents were killed by the start of episode 1.
* ShortHairWithTail: He's had the style since he was a kid apparently. [[spoiler:He even cuts the tail off so Leila can have something to bury in the worst case scenario before the last mission, but is seen to have grown it back later on.]]
* SlasherSmile: Several of them. This trait starts to go away in later episodes.
* SoleSurvivor: Of the W-0 Unit's first mission.
* StockUnderwear: He wears boxer briefs and a sleeveless undershirt to bed at night as revealed in episode 2.
* TheStoic: Off the battlefield, he's a very quiet man bordering on emotionless, but he does at least display a [[DeadpanSnarker sense of humor]]. During the later episodes, he begins to show more and more emotion, though he still remains calm and composed for the most part.
** NotSoStoic: [[spoiler:His brother]] Shin provokes this reaction from him. Justified: When your arch-enemy [[spoiler:and big brother]] tried using PsychicAssistedSuicide on you, you're not exactly going to be happy to see him again.

[[folder:Leila Malcal]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/MaayaSakamoto (Japanese), Creator/JeannieTirado (English)

TheStrategist and later commander of the W-0 unit.
* ActionGirl: Leila is accomplished in aikido and possibly jujutsu, which she demonstrates to anyone unfortunate enough to think she's a soft target.
* {{Adorkable}}: Slips into this sometimes around Akito because she's interested in him and his country's culture. It comes out even more in episode 3 when she's trying (and failing) to help out with chores around the gypsy caravan.
* AMotherToHerMen: Fiercely protective of anyone under her command.
* ArrangedMarriage: To her older stepbrother Johann in the future.
* TheAtoner: Leila has feelings of guilt over the multitude of Elevens that died during the first W-0 operation due to her not dethroning her racist commander earlier than she did.
* BerserkButton: Her older brother Johann ''really'' pisses her off.
* BigBrotherBully: The youngest of her older brothers, Johann, treats her as a concubine due to his hatred of the idea that he will be forced to marry her at his father's behest. Subverted with her two other brothers Daniel and Stefan, who are both {{Nice Guy}}s. [[spoiler:Subverted when it's revealed that Johann does care for her at heart too.]]
* BroodingBoyGentleGirl: The Gentle Girl to Akito's Brooding Boy.
* CantHoldHerLiquor: In a Picture Drama. She turns into an laughing drunk off the smell of sake.
* CulturedBadass: She reads ''Guilbert's Essays on Tactics'' at a party.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Her biological parents were killed on two separate incidents on the same day. A terrorist planted a bomb while her father gave a speech to the public and her mother died in a car crash later that day.
* DefectorFromDecadence: Leila is the child of Britannian nobles who disagreed with the Britannian system and defected to the democratic E.U.
* FeminineWomenCanCook: Inverted. She's the most feminine character and she doesn't know anything about cooking since she led a comfortable with servants doing the cooking.
* FormFittingWardrobe: Episode 2 has her in a skintight pilot suit for half the movie that does a bang-up job of showing off her figure.
* GirlyRun: During the last portion of the series, she does this to catch up with Akito.
* HeroicBSOD: Suffers from one during Episode 4 where she believes Akito had died. Though since they were under invasion at the time, she gets back up after some pep talk from Claus. Afterwards though, she silently cries to herself in her room. That said, she eventually comes to the belief that he's alive, and it's proven by the end.
* HiddenBuxom: Compare her in her usual outfit to her FormFittingWardrobe scene.
* [[InnocentBlueEyes Innocent Purple Eyes]]: Which in ''Anime/CodeGeass'' terms sadly means BreakTheCutie is coming. [[spoiler:Subverted since she [[EarnYourHappyEnding earned her happy ending]] with Akito and their comrades.]]
* KindHeartedCatLover: Has a cat named Eliza.
* LadyAndKnight: The Lady to Akito's Knight.
* LadyOfWar: An elegant and intelligent lady who can still kick ass.
* MagicalEye: [[spoiler:Episode 3 reveals that she contracted with C.C. as a child. However, due to the contract being "incomplete", she doesn't manifest her true power until the final episode, which reveals that her Geass can connect people's consciousnesses to each other, a reflection of her desire for people to understand each other.]]
* NiceGirl: She's one of the few characters with a pleasant demeanor, as long as you aren't a jerkass.
* OdangoHair: Much like Usagi's from ''Anime/SailorMoon'' if she kept the rest of her hair down, though she does trade them for normal GirlishPigtails when she changes into pilot gear.
* OfficialCouple: [[spoiler:With Akito at the end of Final Episode.]]
* ParentalAbandonment: Her father was assassinated while giving a speech. Her mother died the same day in a car crash.
* PurpleEyes: A sign of her Britannian heritage.
* {{Rapunzel|Hair}} HairOfGoldHeartOfGold
* RousseauWasRight[=/=]HumansAreGood: A firm believer of this. It's her strong belief in this that allowed her to stare down and rebut Shin's [[HumansAreBastards nihilistic and cynical]] speech to her.
* SupportingProtagonist: Despite Akito being the main character, much of the story is told through her perspective.
* StalkerWithACrush: She has a fascination with Akito right from the start, to the point where she sneaks out in the morning to see what he's doing, only [[EpicFail to get spotted immediately]].
* WideEyedIdealist: [[spoiler:And unlike most other characters of this type in the franchise, she actually gets her happy ending!]]
* TheWorkaholic: Anna mention that she's workaholic. Justified since she's not only the commander of W-0 unit, but she has to oversee military operations and report to her superiors.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Type B.

[[folder:Ryo Sayama]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/SatoshiHino (Japanese), Creator/RiccoFajardo (English)

The leader of a Japanese terrorist group arrayed against Britannia who ends up being "recruited" into W-0's Wyvern Squad.
* AnAxeToGrind: Both of his machines feature it.
* FireForgedFriends: With Akito and Leila by the time of the middle half of the story, though more with the former.
* HiddenDepths: Despite his bravado, he admits that he only really wants to find a home for himself and his two friends; he grows to enjoy the company of the old Roma women near Warsaw precisely because their caravan becomes something of a second home to him and the rest of Wyvern.
* HotBlooded: To the point he's the sort of guy who uses punching to settle arguments without any real ill will behind it.
* {{Irony}}: He was in charge of a group that had, get this, eleven members. This in a series where Japanese are ''called'' Elevens.
* PetTheDog: He becomes sympathetic towards Akito after finding out that [[spoiler:Akito's brother]] irrationally wanted him killed, with the two eventually becoming good friends.
* ShipperOnDeck: During Episode 3, the look on his face says it all as he prevents Ayano from following after Leila who chases after Akito into the woods.
* SuperDrowningSkills: He doesn't know how to swim and he has to be rescued by the others.

[[folder:Ayano Kosaka]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/YokoHikasa (Japanese), Creator/ElizabethMaxwell (English)

An Japanese terrorist from Ryo's group who ends up being "recruited" into W-0's Wyvern Squad.
* AbsoluteCleavage: For some reason, she spent the early portion of episode 3 with her uniform opened, so everyone can see her chest. Which makes you wonder why she's embarrassed of being stripped naked by old ladies, while indoor.
* AncestralWeapon: Has a blade passed down to her from her samurai ancestry. [[spoiler:She later decides to let Akito keep it, in the hope that it'll bring him good luck.]]
* BoobsOfSteel: She's far more hands-on by comparison to Leila. Not to say that Leila isn't a good fighter herself, though; Ayano is just more likely to fight being a front-line soldier and all compared to Leila being a commander.
* CantHoldHerLiquor: In a Picture Drama. She turns into an crying drunk off the smell of sake.
* {{Expy}}: Somewhat serves as one to Kallen from the original series.
* TheHeart: Becomes something of this for Wyvern Squad.
* HopelessSuitor: She likes Akito, who's not interested [[spoiler:in anybody but Leila]].
* ShamefulStrip: She gets one from the gypsy ladies in episode 3. PlayedForLaughs though. Leila on the other hand didn't really mind the gypies changing her clothes.
* {{Tomboy}}: She wears jeans, coats, and shorts more often than Leila.
* ZettaiRyouiki: The violet-colored stockings + hotpants variety.

[[folder:Yukiya Naruse]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/YoshitsuguMatsuoka (Japanese), Creator/AaronDismuke (English)

The final surviving member of Ryo's group, Yukiya excels at collecting data and handling explosives. Like his boss and Ayano, he's also "recruited" into W-0's Wyvern Squad.
* BoomerangBigot: A member of an oppressed people is himself racist towards his own people.
* ColdSniper: His Knightmare Frame's primary weapon is a sniper rifle. Later develops into a FriendlySniper.
* TheCracker: He hacked into a military grade security system ''undetected'', though he ([[KickTheSonOfABitch mostly]]) settles for less malicious forms of hacking after his HeelFaceTurn.
* {{Determinator}}: As best shown in Episode 5, even while still in recovery from his injuries the guy simply refuses to just lay down while the rest of the squad are fighting for their lives.
* DisproportionateRetribution: He blew up an entire building full o Eleven to get revenge on his bullies.
* EvilGenius: His skills are so good he bypassed the security measures of a Glasgow and forged pilot credentials.
* FreudianExcuse: The students he killed via planting a bomb in the school? A couple of them left him with a large scar spanning almost the full length of his hand.
* FriendlySniper: Both of his machines are long-ranged equipped, and after he mellows out to Akito and Leila, he more or less becomes this.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:It's implied that he tries this ''twice'', but he lives through both attempts.]]
* MadBomber: When not in a mecha bombs seem to be his WeaponOfChoice, as he used them to take out his abusers prior to joining Ryo's crew and [[spoiler:was ready to blow himself up as a means helping Ryo and Ayano more than once]].
* PayEvilUntoEvil: He bombed a school that had the same classmates who fucked up his hand. The evil part also comes from how he seemed unconcerned with any other students who weren't responsible for abusing him.
* PlayfulHacker: On a good day he's one of these, given his use of cutesy mascot characters when working and treating things like fun games. That said even at the best of times his sense of "fun" is ''very'' questionable, and likely terrifying, as lampshaded by Ayano.
* ScarsAreForever: He has many scars on his body, courtesy of Eleven bullies.

[[folder:Anna Clément]]

->'''Voiced by''': Creator/AiKayano (Japanese), Creator/BrynApprill (English)

The scientist who developed the Alexander Knightmare Frame and a childhood friend of Leila.
* ACupAngst: In a Picture Drama, she reveals this to be the reason she was covering her chest area when she, Leila and Ayano get drunk off the smell of sake while soaking in a hot spring, though she claims that her chest is normal; Leila and Ayano's are just too big.
* BridgeBunnies: Serves as one during missions.
* CantHoldHerLiquor: In a Picture Drama. She turns into an angry drunk off the smell of sake.
* ChildhoodFriends: With Leila.
* GossipyHens: According to Leila, she has a habit of gossiping.

* TeenGenius: Is only 17.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Lilac in her case.

* TheLancer: For the W-0 command staff, being far more cynical and lackadaisical than Leila.
