This page consists of the characters who belong to Philosopher's Stone, the guild that stands as the "stone in the palm of the council's hand". It is lead by Vincent Vermillion (VV) and consists of the Code Geass canon characters who aren't a part of Knightmare Frame.
Bismarck WaldsteinThe man known as "The Invincible Magus" Bismarck has a magic shield that protects him from most attacks, can see a few moments into the future to read his opponents next move, can create shields to fight with and protect him, and has a Wave Motion Gun of his own variety. He also has a Cool Sword that generates Razor Wind. Alone these powers aren't much. Combined though they become nigh impossible to defeat. He is also one of the three mages responsible for killing Charles Vermillion.
- Barrier Warrior: His Absolute Defense Shield.
- Break the Haughty: As Asura notes, his arrogance made him easy to bring down the moment he thought himself as untouchable.
- Broken Pedestal: Miala used to admire him when he served at the Rune Knights and finds disappointing that he has become nothing more than VV's dog.
- Cool Sword: Wind Crusher
- Killed Offscreen: He's executed at the end of the Guild War arc for his crimes in the absence of Ushiora and the death of VV.
- Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Trace: Shield
- This Cannot Be!: How he reacts when Suzaku defeats him during the Philosopher's Stone arc. And how he reacts to Lelouch making all of his techniques useless during the Grand Magic Games
- Wave Motion Gun: Dragon Cannon.
- The Worf Effect: For someone heralded as The Invincible Magus, Bismarck gets his ass kicked a lot.
- And in chapter 234, Mirajane makes him her bitch, even powered up by VV.
Mao ConroyIn Fairy Without Wings Mao is even more of a psychopath than he was in canon. He talks about loving to use sharp objects and is just plain nuts like The Joker.
- A Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Read: Ultear wasn't happy that he read her mind shortly before she briefly joined Philosopher's Stone. As punishment she deliberately suckered Mao into reading her mind only for him to see...something that led him to be too scared to do it again.
- Bullying a Dragon: Turns out threatening to expose Alysha as a demon was a very bad idea.
- Love at First Sight: Towards CC
- Psycho for Hire
- Too Dumb to Live: He foolishly thought Morrigan would accept him. She killed him and buried his body, saying he was a fool for believing himself worthy of the power of the goddess.
- Shout-Out: Mao talks about saws and hacksaws almost word for word as Pinkie Pie
- Telepathy: He can read minds, just like in canon.
Monica KruzsewskiThe Token Good Teammate of Philosopher's Stone according to Lelouch. In her first appearance she is quite polite to members of Knightmare Frame and only attacks in self defense... as long as her opponents don't have big boobs that is.
- A-Cup Angst
- Ascended to a Higher Plane of Existence: Morrigan turns her into one of her angels, Florence, with the Blessing of Devotion.
- Berserk Button: Anyone with big boobs is declared her enemy. Ushiora seems to be an exception because she doesn't care at all that she has a sizable chest.
- Defector from Decadence: She quits Philosopher's Stone as her morality gets the better of her when VV orders the group to fight Chelia 6 on 1 during the Grand Magic Games.
- Flunky Boss: Her Golem Make magic makes her this for all who fight against her.
- Gemstone Assault
- Take a Third Option: When forced to choose between Knightmare Frame and V.V., Morrigan offers her another alternative, joining her. She accepts.
RaiA mysterious young man in a white hood with white hair that is apparently Nonette's mentor and somehow hasn't aged a day since she last saw him. He wields the lost molding magic Soul Make, which lets him mold and manipulate his and other souls.
- Always with You: As his soul merges with Nonette's, he promises to continue supporting her.
- Child Prodigy: Is the youngest mage to ever make the Wizard Saints.
- Dead All Along: He died many years ago fighting a demon to protect Nonette. The Rai Nonette fights is merely a construct of his Soul Make hypnotized by VV.
- The Dreaded: He's so powerful that he makes Ushiora uneasy and she's his ally.
- Heroic Sacrifice: He gave his life to protect Nonette from a demon named E.E. using a technique called Fallen Angel, that gave half his soul to Nonette and left a construct of his soul behind.
- In the Hood: How he makes his entrance.
- Mythology Gag: His Soul Alter ability has him create armor that's made to look like Knightmare Frames from his home series, including the Lancelot, the Lancelot Club, the Gawain and the Zangetsu.
- Older Than They Look: At first its questionable whether or not Rai is the same as the Rai Nonette knew, but after seeing his magic in action, it's clear he's the same guy and hasn't aged a day.
- The Quiet One: Communicates so far only with Visible Silence. He doesn't even do the standard Calling Your Attacks. The reason is because as a soul construct, he can't transmit his thoughts, eat or sleep, only fight.
Rolo HailburtonA mage with the ability to stop time. Rolo lived in an orphanage before he joined not Philosopher's Stone, but Knightmare Frame after Lelouch had the dorm mother arrested. Lelouch then took Rolo under his wing until Rolo proved difficult. This caused Lelouch to pass Rolo off to Fairy Tail, who in turn passed Rolo to Blue Pegasus. Rolo's attitude got him tossed out, baffling even Lelouch, and he was eventually scouted by VV for Philosopher's Stone.
After the Guild War arc he joins Succubus Eye and then Tartaros before ultimately dying at the hands of Luster after he blatantly disobeyed orders and decided to do right by Jenny at least once.
- Because You Were Nice to Me: The reason he has such an obsession with Bisca, Jenny and Lelouch.
- Bi the Way: Rolo has tendencies not just towards Lelouch, but also Jenny Realight and Fairy Tail's Bisca.
- Deader Than Dead: Luster not only crumbles Rolo's demon body into dust, but she also stabs a sword through his book form, ensuring neither Tartaros nor Morrigan can bring him back.
- Dying Declaration of Love: To Jenny, though it's cut short by a peeved off Luster.
- Epic Fail: You know you've done goofed when even Blue Pegasus wants nothing to do with you.
- Killed Mid-Sentence: Angered by his betrayal, Luster doesn't let him finish what was a Dying Declaration of Love to Jenny.
- Murder the Hypotenuse: Tried to do this to Alzack to get his love for Bisca. Alzack proved to be enough of a badass to get out of Rolo's trap.
- Redemption Equals Death: After Jenny, Dorothea, Sayoko, and Cana have been wrecked by Luster, she orders Rolo to kill them all. Rolo comes dangerously close, but after a speech from Jenny of how he can still be a good person, he changes his mind and decides to do right by her. This results in Luster killing him. Jenny lets him die knowing that, at the end, he at least did something 100% heroic.
- Spanner in the Works: For a lot of Knightmare Frame's missions. On VV's orders, Rolo has sabotaged many missions for the enemy guild.
- We Used to Be Friends: Used to be a member of Knightmare Frame, but his Yandere tendencies got him kicked out.
- Yandere: Rolo is obsessed with Lelouch, Bisca, and Jenny Yes, in that way and yes in that way.
Ushiora VermillionAn Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette who is VV's wife. Her maiden name is Cipher. She is more than likely VV's dragon. Before she was married to VV she was under his orders to eliminate a faction of members of Souls Blade, which included Inoue, who survived and swore revenge.
She's also a demon of Tartaros that's in love with Mard Geer.
- Alas, Poor Villain: See Villainous Breakdown below for more details, but there's something sorrowful about Ushiora's demise as she continues to claim to be human, despite turning out to be a demon as she's betrayed by VV, writhing in agony before her whole body explodes from ethernano overload. Ouch.
- Be Careful What You Wish For: Tortured Kalina until she called for her mother, wanting a rematch with Kasumi. Kasumi didn't let her live to regret her choice.
- Bullying a Dragon: Sure, Ushiora, torture the daughter of the woman who threatened to kill you if you ever harmed her again, What Could Possibly Go Wrong? The answer: Kasumi made sure not even ashes remained.
- But for Me, It Was Tuesday: Ushiora considers what she did to Inoue's husband, Takashi, to be just another mission.
- Expy: Of a genderbent Ulquiorra.
- Hoist by Her Own Petard: Thanks to some quick planning from Lelouch, Ushiora gets her own overpowered attack reflected back at her. This trope is doubly in effect because Lelouch uses Bismarck's attack to do it.
- Humanity Ensues: She's a demon rewritten by Morrigan into a human to make her understand humanity. Until chapter 234.
- Karmic Death: She was killed for the second (and final) time by the mother of the girl she nearly killed twice, and she was convinced her original Etherious form was more than enough to deal with Kasumi. How wrong she was.
- The Stoic
- Villainous Breakdown: In chapter 234 she breaks down crying and saying she's human as her body is overloaded with Ethernano and explodes, returning her to book form.
- What Is This Thing You Call "Love"?: Ushiora denies having love for anyone, including her husband VV, but then it's revealed as proved by Meredy's Sensory Link that she does love someone Mard Geer Tartaros.
VVFull name Vincent Vermillion. He is Charles brother and a descendant of Mavis Vermillion, the founder of Fairy Tail. Whereas Charles seemed to have shed his Jerkass nature to be an decent human being this time around, it seems VV has to compensate by being the biggest dickhead of the biggest dickhead competition in the history of biggest...and dickhead. VV is the founder and guildmaster of Philosophers Stone. He is responsible for the death of Charles and is Knightmare Frames greatest foe. VV still looks like a child because of his vampire genes when he was bitten as a small boy. He is one of the most powerful mages in all of Fiore as he is one of the Ten Wizard Saints. However, he also is in good with the council, but this, according to Lelouch is a façade. VV plays by the rules on the outside, but on the inside he is paying off council members under the table to look the other way in regards to his plotting.
- A God Am I: Once he's hyped up on Etherion, VV believes him to be no less than this, saying that he has surpassed both Morrigan and Zeref. Irene proves otherwise.
- Arc Villain: Finally takes the role of main antagonist in the Guild War arc.
- Asshole Victim: After all the crap he pulled, no one felt sorry when Irene Berserion squashed him like a bug.
- Batman Gambit: He knew Lelouch wouldn't dare pass up an opportunity to attack him while the council was incapacitated so he aggravated Knightmare Frame to attack his guild while he went to Crocus to reinstate the council and then drove Lelouch and the others off before they could inflict any real damage or cause any fatalities.
- Blackmail: After Kasumi uncovers his plan, not only he murders one of her guild mates and threatens to frame her, he threatens Kalina's life to force her to fight for him.
- Bring My Brown Pants: His general reaction to Kallen and Erza's sheer skill level on the third day of the Grand Magic Games.
- Bullying a Dragon: Two in his case and quite literally for this trope, not only did he think he could defeat Acnologia (who was merely sizing him up), but provoked the Dragon Queen, Irene Berserion. VV ends a blood stain on the floor.
- Didn't See That Coming: He couldn't believe both Ushiora and Bismarck were defeated despite powering up both of them.
- Hypnotic Eyes: Hypnotizes the Magic Council to disband Fairy Tail and Knightmare Frame in order to incite war.
- Hypocrite: He finds himself disappointed and angry at the reveal of Ushiora's true origins. Says the immoral, barely-even human, megalomaniacal vampire.
- Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: In an attempt to humiliate Fairy Tail, VV forces Erza to compete in Pandemonium, ensures she goes first and ups the challenge on her in order so that Erza will make a fool of herself and Bismarck can get full points for Philosopher's Stone the third day of the Grand Magic Games. This proves to be his undoing when Erza defeats all 100 monsters.
- Older Than They Look: Looks younger than Nunnally, is older than Marianne. In chapter 221 he shows to have access to an adult form of his.
- One-Winged Angel: In chapter 221 Kasumi witnesses his true vampiric form; a 7 feet tall, horned, winged creature with glowing dark-pink eyes and black skin.
- Our Vampires Are Different: So far he seems to be a vampire in the traditional sense with hypnosis, bat transformations and mist transformations too.
- Underestimating Badassery: Early in the story Lelouch realizes VV is far more powerful than he lets on. He had no idea how right he was.
- VV then ends up doing this himself towards Acnologia and Irene, and paid for it with his life.
- Villainous Breakdown: An epic one in chapter 236: Not only Irene's dragon form withstands anything he throws at her like its nothing, he realized too late Acnologia was merely sizing him up, and goes down screaming and crying as Irene crushes him like a bug.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: He says Ushiora is no longer of use to him when he realizes she's a demon and is about to be destroyed.
