Oh. Well this is interesting. It seems Author-kun finally got around to giving me a place to showcase my sublime magnificence. *pause* Yes yes, I'll get on with it.

I am Lelouch vi Britannia, aka Lamperouge, or "Trollouche", as Author-kun and the readers have dubbed me. While there may be some resemblance between my person and the jackass I was the last time around, I assure you.


. *smirks* I am far more than he could ever dream of being.

But where are my manners? Let me elaborate. *sits down, sipping on a glass of beer* I was Lelouch Lamperouge, the Demon Emperor, the man of miracles Zero, and several other titles I don't care to get into the moment. At this point, you all know how that story ended. *makes a cutting gesture across his neck*

However? Someone, or something, decided to give me a mulligan and booted me back to that fateful day in Shinjuku when I first met an charming and vexing woman with green hair and amber eyes. Except? *holds up a finger* I got someone else's memories and personality tossed in as well. Who he was, I have no fucking idea. It's a moot point at this point anyway, since the two of us got blended to the point where it's impossible to figure out who is who.


For the sake of my own sanity, and other reasons, I still answer to Lelouch. Though most people just refer to me as Trollouche out of universe. *winks*

. *switches to female voice* (voice of Asako Dodo or Kari Wahlgren) I also occasionally go by Leloucia when I'm feeling more feminine. Oh ho ho ho ho.

Seeing as how I royally *snorts* fucked up everything last time? I decided that I was going do things right and save the people who I failed, and be what I should have been from the start.

. *He snaps his fingers, the lights going out, and then reactivating to reveal him in the Zero outfit*

Zero. The Demon King of the Sixth Heaven. The man who will fulfill the divine ambition and save this world from itself.

From the point of view of you, the readers, I am the creation of Trickster Priest aka "Author-kun", an author of some skill and a lot more ego. I could conceivably be called a self-insert, but that isn't quite accurate considering I am still very much Lelouch vi Britannia. I prefer to think of myself as Lelouch as he should have been.


My story, the fanfiction work Codes And Geass: Embracing Your Inner Megalomania, can found in various places on the internet for your reading pleasure.

Now, cast your eyes on what lies below, and behold my transcendent glory. *pauses* No, CC. I am not overacting. I'm just that god damn fabulous. *stage bow*

Zero, Demon King of The Sixth Heaven, bids you gaze upon his mighty tropes!:

  • Abusive Parents: Jesus christ, where do I fucking start with this one? When you have Charles zi Britannia as your father, and Marianne vi Britannia as your mother? You're kind of screwed from the get go. Though to be fair? For the first 10 years or so, they weren't that bad. At least until Uncle Vincent threw a snit. ¬_¬
  • Agent Peacock: Does it still count considering I have a female identity as well as a male? I suppose badassery has no gender. Heh.
  • The Atoner: ........I admit it. A large part of my actions is trying to atone for the epic disaster that was my first try. How successful I am at it, is a matter of some conjecture.
  • Anti-Hero/ Anti-Villain: Moral classification? Ha! I defy your attempts to classify me! I am an iconoclast!
  • Arch-Enemy: At this point, I have three. My father, Charles zi Britannia, my uncle Vincent Victor zi Britannia (VV), and....Schneizel. Of them, Schneizel is the one I despise and fear the most. But Charles is the one who best qualifies as my arch enemy on account of being the one person I consider my true equal.
  • At Least I Admit It: It would be absurdly hypocritical for me not to acknowledge that I am a monster. Or a hypocrite on occasion. I at least try not to go off the deep end with either.
  • Attention Whore: I want to argue this, but seeing as CC is laughing at me even trying? I'll let it pass and just cop to it.
  • Attractive Bent-Gender: *Leloucia voice* Oh I know I am. It just took me awhile to get comfortable with it and embrace being a woman as well as a man. *sexy wink*
  • Awesome Ego: C'mon. You people read this shit JUST to watch whatever crazy thing I come up with next.
  • Badass Boast: I'm particularly proud of this one I came up with at the Siege of Tokyo: "On wings of darkness do we fly, let death and sorrow rain from sky! We come now across hill and glade, behold our strength! THE BLACK KNIGHTS' BLADE!"
  • Badass Creed: 天下布武 (Tenka Fubu) (roughly "Spread military rule across all under Heaven"). The war maxim and creed of my glorious predecessor, Oda Nobunaga. Which I appropriated for my forces shamelessly.
  • Badass Bureaucrat: I am just as skilled with spreadsheets and logistics, as I am with swords.
  • Battle Couple: Technically, this could apply to CC or to Kallen. Hell, considering the logistical nature of warfare, this trope could even be extended to Battle Harem and encompass everyone I'm involved with.
  • Battle in the Center of the Mind: Well seeing as how we're in Code Geass, this had to come up somewhere. Though I don't think CC and Mao were prepared for "The Beast In Black."
  • BDSM: Sticks and stones may break my bones, but whips and chains excite me. Whether I'm the one getting tied up, or the one doing the spanking, it's all in the name of fun.
  • The Berserker: Aside from my destructive temper? My sword fighting style embraces a controlled berserker state as the ideal combat mindset.
  • Bishonen: To quote a certain song? "I'm sexy and I know it."
  • Big, Screwed-Up Family: family has a long history of crazy, among other things. Enough that people like Milly acknowledge it as an established fact.
  • Bloodier and Gorier: Considering how many people I've personally killed this time compared to my last go-around? It's an inevitable consequence of getting my own hands dirty.
  • Blood Knight: Hilariously, despite how much I enjoy fighting and war? I'm still apparently less of one than my mother, according to CC.
  • Breaking Speech: Oh yesss. Perhaps one of my greatest strengths. Even Author-kun wonders if this is my real geass instead of Absolute Obedience.
  • Broken Ace: ........Fine. Yes, the events of the original timeline took a severe toll on me, one I'm still dealing with in a variety of ways.
  • Byronic Hero: *shrugs* I'm more or less the dictionary definition of one. It would be the height of hypocrisy not to own it.
  • Casual Kink: While I am a fairly kinky person, I adhere to the most important rule of BDSM: It's ALL about trust. Everything is predicated on trusting your partner.
  • Chick Magnet: Some things never change. It's a curse being this charming.
  • Cultured Badass: I have an appreciation for the classics and haute couture, both occidental and oriental.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: The interesting thing about this, is that the things I come up with, are horrifying, but honestly not that far out of the norm for what happens in my world. Which really says a lot about how screwed up my world is.
  • Cruel to Be Kind: I make a habit of doing this to people I care about. One, so they can stand up to me. And two, so they can stop me if needed. That, and being around me is hazardous to one's morals and health. So you really need to be able to stand up for yourself to begin with.
  • Dark Is Evil/ Dark Is Not Evil: Like most moralilty tropes? It really depends on who you talk to and whether you catch me on a good day or a bad day.
  • Dark Messiah: Because in a world that's gone to hell? Who better to save it than the devil?
  • Designated Monkey: Sadly, having lived through the previous timeline means that I am unfortunately aware that Murphy fucking hates me.
  • Diabolus ex Machina: In-story? Thankfully hasn't happened unless of course you count the Siegfried.... Out of story and peeking through the 4th wall? Yes. It's called my psychopath sadist writer, Author-kun. -_-
  • Didn't See That Coming: Oh boy didn't I. After getting blindsided, power bombed and electrocuted by the Siegfried, nobody really has wanted to say "I told you so" to me. Thankfully, only CC and maybe Laila would know enough to call me on this fuck up.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Admittedly, some of my executions go a bit far. But hey, I try to make sure they deserve it. ESPECIALLY for anyone who threatens Nunnally. Or people threatening Suzaku. As a matter of fact, don't threaten the people I love, I have an itchy sword grip.
  • Dual Wielding: My sword fighting style is inspired by Miyamoto Musashi's Ni Ten Ichi Ryuu. Though rather than katana and wakizashi, my style uses two long swords.
  • Ethical Slut: And proud of it! It's a big reason why I'm not pressuring Kallen to do anything. If she's not comfortable and eager to do it? Then it's not the right time.
  • Evil Laugh: Unleashing a glorious triumphant laugh is something I immensely enjoy. No matter how much it unnerves everyone around me. Though I've instructed the various people around me to belt me if I start going too long on one.
  • Expy: I've been compared to both my predecessor Oda Nobunaga....and Griffith/Femto. *grimacing*
  • Gender Fluid: As it turns out? I actually enjoy being a woman part of the time. So I adopted the female identity of Leloucia. Of course, the first time I did this, it freaked out Milly and Nunnally... see the strong family resemblance trope for why. And yes, Author-kun is aware that this isn't a standard trope, but this was the best description he could come up with.
  • Guy on Guy Is Hot: The women I'm involved with generally seem to think so. I suspect they're mostly just perverts though. Not that there's anything wrong with that...
  • Heavy Metal: *throws up the horns* I am a DIE-HARD metalhead. If I'm listening to music, odds are it's going to be metal. Hell, I use it as battle music most of the time.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Author-kun is an actual trained swordsman, so I picked up his skills once I started using blades.
  • Incest Subtext/ Brother–Sister Incest: Subtext my ass. Most of my sisters wanted to marry me when we were kids, and I'm pretty sure some of them would still want to at this point. I mean, Euphemia made that clear enough when she defected to my side after the SAZ.
  • Insult of Endearment: *warm smile* Some people might be confused or concerned, that CC and I call each other asshole and bitch tornado respectively. It's really closer to pet names and closer to other people's "honey" or "dear."
  • Jerk With A Heartof Gold: Gold is probably a bridge too far. Much as I self-deprecate myself, more than one person has told me I'm a better man than I'm given credit for. I usually try not to argue the point.
  • Large Ham: Considering what my world is like? It would be a bigger surprise if I wasn't one.
  • Leitmotif: If I had to pick one? "Wheel Of Time" by Blind Guardian. It's....remarkably apt for everything I've been through.
  • Make an Example of Them: As sadistic as it might seem? I do believe that on occasion, one must make an example of someone to make sure people get the fucking point. Example: The various assholes I killed to stop the Burakumin nonsense.
  • Mangst: CC says, and I would tend to agree, that I most likely have a severe case of PTSD from everything I went through....but I try to focus on the good things in life and what I can do better, rather than the past.
  • Morality Chain: Chains, plural. I know exactly what I am capable of, if I lost all connection to this world. Hence why I guard those who hold my heart so carefully.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: 大六天魔王 (Dairokuten-Maou) the Demon King of the Sixth Heaven. The illustrious and storied title of Oda Nobunaga, the man I claim as my predecessor. Though strictly speaking, the original holder is the demon king MARA. I picked up the title myself after being inspired. It really does seem to suit me.
  • No One Could Survive That!: Rakshata and Bartley both said I shouldn't be alive after what happened at the Siege of Tokyo. It's a medical miracle that they were able to extract me from the wreckage without my expiring.
  • One True Love: Though I have many whom I love and wish to keep by my side, CC is the one whom I hold most dear.
  • Risking the King: Would I be Lelouch vi Britannia if I didn't do this?
  • Rousing Speech: My words set the world ablaze, enflaming the embers within broken hearts, and quenching the courage of my enemies with icy claws of fear.
  • Screw Destiny: My goal, nay, my raison d'etre! I WILL defy fate itself and seize what is mine! And this time, I will make sure the people I care about survive to celebrate with me.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: I didn't realize it at first, but I look like an almost exact clone of my mother, Marianne vi Britannia when I'm Leloucia. I even sound like her.
  • The Stoner: Gangja is a godsend for my stress levels. I do smoke quite a bit, but it's largely to deal with the epic amounts of bullshit Murphy keeps piling onto me.
  • Supporting Harem: It takes on a slightly different look when the woman who is your wife in all but name, says it's her harem too.
  • Take Over the World: Oh come the fuck on. I practically spelled out I was going to do this back at fucking Narita! It should not have taken people this long to realize it! Nevertheless, I spelled it out for everybody who didn't take the hint in my comeback speech in our base in Saudi Arabia.
  • Troll: Literally part of my fan given nickname. And something I have an irresistible compulsive urge to do.
  • Unholy Matrimony: The caveats being, I'm not exactly the villain, and I'm not married....yet. It's definitely in my eventual plans to tie a few knots. Anyway, I call CC the Queen of Hell for a reason. Namely, she is the person most qualified to call me out when I'm in the wrong.
  • Utopia Justifies the Means: You know, it's funny. I was absolutely in favor of the ends justifying the means last time I tried this shit. Having had some time to reflect on my...numerous fuckups both then and now? I'm forced to concede that Suzaku actually had a point when he talked about contemptible means. Albeit, not the point he intended. There are lines I am NOT willing to cross this time around.
  • War Is Glorious/ War Is Hell: I'm of the firm belief that you need to hold both of these beliefs to be an effective leader.
  • Yandere: Ok, fine. I am something of a yandere where Suzaku is concerned. Probably where someone hurting any of my loved ones is concerned, frankly.
