[[folder:Akito Hyuga]]
-->'''Voiced by''': Creator/MiyuIrino

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.
----
* 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.
* {{Badass}}: When you can take on 1/2 of an elite Britannian Knightmare squad all by yourself [[spoiler:or go one-on-one against a Knightmare ''on foot'' and ''win'']], it's a little difficult to ''not'' qualify for this.
** In a flashback of episode two, it's shown he was Geass-commanded [[spoiler:by his brother]] to die, and Akito ''resisted it completely'', making him the first person to ever completely resist a full command from a Geass, and he was ''four'' at that time! [[spoiler:Although episode 4 reveals that Shin can still command Akito to kill others when he wants to; it's only because of his feelings for Leila that he finally resisted it completely. WordOfGod is that the only reason Akito didn't die back then was because he was too young to understand what his brother truly meant.]]
* 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
* DeathSeeker: It was even his final line to his dead comrades. "Akito, why do you fight?" "...So I can die."
* DeadpanSnarker
* 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.
* 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.
* ShortHairWithTail
* SlasherSmile: Several of them.
* SoleSurvivor: Of his previous W-0 unit.
* TheStoic: Off the battlefield, he's a very quiet man bordering on emotionless, but he does at least display a [[DeadpanSnarker sense of humor]].
** NotSoStoic: [[spoiler:His brother]] Shin Hyūga Shaingu 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

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.
* {{Badass}}: Due to her skills in mentioned martial arts, she managed to [[spoiler:disarm her racist commander when he attempts to shoot her and later on, disarms Ayano, who is armed with a short katana.]]
** CulturedBadass: She reads ''Guilbert's Essays on Tactics'' at a party.
* 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.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Her biological parents were killed when a terrorist planted a bomb while her father was giving a speech to the public.
* DefectorFromDecadence: Leila is the child of Britannian nobles who disagreed with the Britannian system and defected to the democratic E.U.
* 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.
* 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
* OfficialCouple: [[spoiler:With Akito at the end of Final Episode.]]
* 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!]]
* ZettaiRyouiki: Type B.

The leader of a Japanese terrorist group arrayed against Britannia who ends up being "recruited" into W-0's Wyvern Squad.
----
* 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.

* 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).

* GeniusSlob: He hacked into a military grade security system ''undetected''.
