C.C. (シ ー ・ ツ ー Shī Tsū, pronounced C2) (し ー つ ー), is the tritagonist of Code Geass: Lelouch of Rebellion. Her voice actor in Japanese is Yukana, while in English dub she is voiced by Kate Higgins. C.C. is not her real name; she involuntarily reveals her real name to Lelouch in her sleep, but the audience cannot hear it.


C.C. is a girl with long, almost waist-length, light green hair and golden eyes. She is medium in size and slightly smaller than Kallen. She has a scar under her left breast that resembles a Geass seal.

C.C.'s outfits are both plentiful and varied. You can see them in a wide range of different clothing items, often depending on the situation or the time period. She often wears Lelouch's own clothing, including his Zero costume, when Lelouch needed bait.

In the first season, C.C. primarily the outfit she initially appears in - a white straitjacket she wore during her time as a test subject for the British Empire prior to the start of the series. These suits contain many means of restraint, including various straps and zippers, and a high collar that can gag the wearer. The suits are not set to completely tie the wearer, but rather have fairly long sleeves that flare outward closer to the cuffs. A number of these straitjackets can be seen in Geass research laboratories. According to the radio play, the reason C.C. that she doesn't feel free. You can see them wearing it for most of the first season and at the end of the second season.

C.C.'s predominant outfit in the second season is the uniform of the Black Knights, which is very different from those of the

different black knights. Instead of the usual jacket of the Black Knights, C.C. a sleeveless black uniform with a high collar, gold trim and a silver symbol of the Black Knights on the chest. The lower end of the uniform is divided into four long pieces that almost reach the floor. A long, ornate red sash is also worn around the waist. C.C. also wears long black gloves with gold trim, which are held with red ribbons on the upper arms, as well as long white and gold high-heeled boots. Under her uniform, C.C. a short, sleeveless, white turtle neck and white boy's boots. Often you can only see them wearing these underwear.

In some episodes, she wore the Ashford Academy uniform and her hair is tied in twin tails. This is done to blend in easily with the student body, so that they can move around more freely, delivering Lelouch messages, or just to find more pizza.


C.C. expresses little emotion for most of each season and is apathetic towards most. However, she does express some emotions later in the first season and in several places in the second season when she is in the presence of Lelouch. When she locks her memories away, she becomes back to how she was hundreds of years ago, fearful and open. However, when she regains her memories, her personality returns.

Kallen suspects that C.C. in love with Lelouch is what C.C. made unusually nervous. This is supported by the fact that C.C. Lelouch never got Lelouch to take her immortality under her contract and he fears that she changed his fate.


C.C. is immortal and will heal from any type of wound (including decapitation) with sufficient time. It doesn't age either. Aside from her immortality, C.C. the ability to endow people with the power of Geass, which manifests itself differently in each person, but generally carries the ability to influence the minds of those on whom it is used in any way. A Geass seal appears on her forehead when she manifests this power, and she has a similar scar on her left breast. Her powers aroused the interest of Britannia, which she imprisoned for experimental purposes.

In the first season finale, C.C. one of V.V. set up a trap that plunges her and Lelouch into a shock sequence similar to the one she used with Suzaku. Through this, Lelouch sees memories of her past, including repeated "deaths". One shows C.C., who was a nurse at the time, trying to escape from a WWI-like battlefield only to be shot in the forehead. Other memories reveal how she was persecuted as a witch and suffered various forms of torture and / or execution throughout history and at different times, including cremation at the stake, guillotination, and the iron maiden. This would indicate a minimum lifespan of at least five centuries. In a special feature on the fifth DVD of the series, she and Lelouch discuss Washington's Rebellion, a failed version of the American Revolution, speaking of participants like George Washington and Benjamin Franklin as if she were close friends with both of them. In the past, she appears to have watched Suzaku and Lelouch when they were both children, and even interacted with Lelouch once, though he doesn't remember their encounter.

Their individual experiences have led C.C. has become a distant and lonely individual who doesn't even care about those with whom she has contracts. She tells Lelouch that she's been alive so long that she can't remember who loves her and who hates her. Because of her nature and history, she has been lonely for as long as she can remember. Lelouch replies: "You are not alone. We are partners. If you are a witch then I am a demon." Lelouch may be the first person to ever really take care of her, and it seems she reciprocates at least some of those feelings as she unexpectedly kisses him after her memories are shared. This shows up in the second season as well, as she kindly teases him more often. However, she claims that she was selfish and kept Lelouch alive just so she could die. In episode 23 of the second season, Suzaku asks her to be Lelouch's shield and defend him from his enemies, while Suzaku slays these enemies as Lelouch's sword.

C.C. is almost ready to make a mistake and usually does whatever she wants, whether or not it causes inconvenience to others, especially Lelouch. In episode 5, she intentionally makes use of her contract to make it sound like a pre-Nunnally engagement, and in one tone sequence she told Nunnally that both she and Lelouch were "busy" making a false promise to Nunnally understand.

When left alone, she has sometimes spoken to a hitherto unknown person by unknown means, who in episode 23 turned out to be Marianne, Lelouch's "deceased" mother, although in episode 19 it appears that she was also with V.V. speaks. According to DVD Magazine 02, when she appears to be talking to herself, she is talking to more than one person.

C.C. also has a somewhat obsessive penchant for pizza, especially Pizza Hut's Cheese-kun (which Code Geass in

Japan sponsors); she keeps ordering pizzas at Lelouch's house with his credit card, much to his chagrin. This is often used for comedic effects. Her love for pizza is so strong that she is willing to risk being captured, almost exposing herself twice to get a slice of a giant pizza made by the student council (which is ruined both times) ; both Lelouch and Kallen sometimes refer to her as a "pizza girl". She is also an avid collector of cheese-kun-related merchandise and is often seen hugging a cheese-kun plush doll.


1st season

C.C. first appears at the beginning of the series' first episode when she watches ten-year-old Lelouch and ten-year-old Suzaku as the British military enter Japan.

C.C. is introduced when Nagata opens the capsule that supposedly contains poison. Suzaku quickly puts his own gas mask on Lelouch's face, but to her surprise, a reserved green-haired woman, C.C., emerges from the capsule. Before they can get any answers, Suzaku's superiors come and tell him not to question his briefing and shoot the "terrorist" Lelouch. When he refuses, he is promptly shot in the back. Lelouch and C.C. take the opportunity to escape. Just as they seem to be evading discovery, Lelouch's phone rings and gives him away. As they are about to kill him, C.C. forward and is shot in the forehead. A desperate Lelouch now thinks about his impending death. He is from C.C. grabbed by the hand who proposes a contract that would allow him to live and endow him with Geass, the power of kings. Then she supposedly dies.

Unexpectedly, she reappears in the fifth episode, casually folding origami with Nunnally. From then on, she passively oversees Lelouch's missions as Zero and wants to keep him alive so he can fulfill his contract.

Cornelia, who Lelouch does not know, traps Zero in the Saitama ghetto by simulating the conditions in the Shinjuku ghetto. Despite C.C.'s warnings, Lelouch accepts the bait and goes to the aid of the Saitama Resistance. To save Lelouch, C.C. puts on his Zero costume, distracts the British Army and lets him escape. Lelouch blames the undisciplined rebel for his defeat and tells her that he will decide to build something far better than a mere resistance unit, first an army, then a "people" and finally a nation.

C.C. was called by Mao to Chlodwigland, at first she was stopped by Lelouch. She tells him that she will return to Mao. Lelouch asks if she'll tell him, to which C.C. replies that she was never his girlfriend, just a collaborator. He goes on to say that she knows too much about him. He orders C.C. to stay by his side and not leave by using his Geass power, but that fails because of C.C.'s immortality and his code. She promises him that she will not reveal anything about his identity and tells Lelouch that when she is gone, all of his obstacles will also be gone.

Not wanting to let her go, Lelouch goes to Clovis and uses a recording to distract and arouse Mao when he hears C.C. Lelouch's partner is. Lelouch uses his Geass power on the police to shoot Mao so that Lelouch can save them. After she is out of danger, he signs a contract with C.C. and promises that he will comply with both his own and C.C.'s wishes to fulfill the treaty that Mao failed to fulfill. C.C. gladly accepts this with a handshake.

When C.C.'s existence is revealed to the Black Knights, she gains considerable unofficial reputation as she is viewed by other members as one of Zero's closest advisers. However, their idiosyncratic demeanor and lack of an official post annoy some veteran members and create confusion about their role within the Black Knights. At some point Tamaki goes so far as to falsely accuse her of being Zero's mistress. When the Black Knights come into possession of the Knightmare FrameGawain, she becomes its pilot, while Lelouch controls the weapons.

In the final, she fights with Gawain against Jeremiah Gottwald's Siegfried so that Lelouch can save his sister

can. Then, to his surprise, she kisses Lelouch before taking him to safety. After Lelouch is out of danger, she is seen dragging both Jeremiah and herself to the bottom of the sea to end the fight while telling that the spark of Lelouch's actions was the core of human motivation: the desire for one small amount of happiness. According to Yukana in a conference memo, C.C. crushed by the water pressure but managed to get to the surface; they say it was too gruesome to be shown on television.

2nd season

At the beginning of the second season, C.C. command the Black Knights. Together with Kallen, Urabe and the remaining Black Knights, she initiates an operation to uncover the memory of Zero, sealed by the Emperor of Britannia. Although the secret service followed Lelouch in anticipation of exactly this result, she succeeds in restoring his memories through an unexpected kiss. After that, it resumes its old position.

It turns out she used to run the Geass Directorate, a secret organization that studies and produces Geass users. V.V. followed C.C. as head and moved the headquarters somewhere in the Chinese Federation. Lelouch leaves to find the exact location below while he returns to Japan. After determining the exact location of the Geass Board of Directors, Lelouch orders C.C. to lead the attack against the Geass Board of Directors. Reluctantly, she also kills the direct subordinates of the V.V. when they try to flee by bullet train to bury Geass' existence.

Her past is revealed to Lelouch after he is transported to the Sword of Akasha to learn about the

To face emperor. She also reveals that he would have become immortal had he been able to take her code, make her mortal, and thereby fulfill her wish, which is to die and spare him by telling the emperor to her Sacrifices life. Lelouch refuses to let her die miserably and saves her by telling his father that he would not let him take her away from him. As a result, she loses her memories of Geass and returns to her personality as she was before she came under the contract that eventually gave her immortality. It is later revealed by Marianne that this is due to C.C. sealed her own code instead of handing it over to Charles zi Britannia.

After her memory loss, C.C. in Lelouch's quarters and thinks he's their master. When Lelouch's identity is revealed to the Black Knights and Rolo is forced to get him to safety, he lets C.C. back. Marianne, who is in possession of Anya Alstreim's body, finds C.C. and brings back their memories. The two then set out for Kamine Island and save Suzaku on the way. Marianne enters the sword of Akasha while C.C. stays behind to speak to Suzaku. She reveals that she and Suzaku are similar as they both have a death wish that they cannot fulfill. Suzaku denies this and lets C.C. bring them to the sword of Akasha so that the emperor can begin with Ragnarok. When Lelouch turns the tables and destroys the collective unconscious of mankind Karl and Marianne, C.C. spared because she had long since opposed her plan.

Knowing about Lelouch's plan after becoming Emperor, she is shocked to learn that Nunnally is alive. C.C. later comforts Lelouch when worried about what to do with Nunnally. She is later seen rendezvous with Lelouch, but their conversation is soon interrupted by Kallen. Kallen attacks the Avalon with the Guren and almost successfully kills Lelouch before C.C. intervenes in their Lancelot. She takes up the fight against Kallen, who asks her if she loves Lelouch; she replies that she doesn't know before Kallen quickly defeats her. She throws herself to safety, surprised that she even cares about victory or defeat. During Lelouch's planned assassination attempt, she prays for him in a church, sheds a single tear as she comments on the price he pays for using Geass on others.

During the epilogue, C.C. drive through the countryside in the back of a cart with cheese-kun and the origami she and Nunnally made. She says Geass is supposed to bring loneliness, but Lelouch has proven otherwise.Since she knew that Lelouch did not hate her for giving him the Geass, she can now show her true feelings, and with the realization of the "Zero Requiem" her time with Lelouch went, who could forgive her and accept her, over, but the memories created with him undoubtedly saved her from eternal loneliness. The last shot is of a pink paper crane depicting the desire for a soft world, "Zero Requiem", the C.C. Gives consolation.

During the reissue of the 2009 epilogue, C.C. directly to the viewer, saying that she mourns Lelouch's death, but that it comforts her to know that he died with a smile because he achieved his goals with the Zero Requiem.


Code of Immortality

C.C. is an immortal "witch" who neither suffers from old age nor can be killed by conventional means. She was fatally shot several times, crushed by water pressure, burned at the stake, guillotine, placed in an iron maiden, and pierced by spears from which she all recovered.

C.C. has the ability to equip people with the power of Geass, who are different for each person

manifests, but generally has the ability to affect the minds of those on whom it is used in any way. The Geass seal shines on her forehead when she manifests this power, and she has a similar scar on her left breast. This scar correlates with the wound she received when she was attacked by the nun who gave her the code.

Her code enables her to identify people who are associated with Geass and people who are important to her. It allows her to see the location of her own contractors from a distance and to confirm who has Geass Power of Attorney and who doesn't, regardless of who gave it to them. She could tell that Nunnally was on the island of Chimneys because it is the center of Lelouch's life.

In the presence of another person, C.C. haunt them with a hallucinatory experience of chaotic and threatening images, some of which are related to the memories of the person concerned; the content varies depending on the person concerned. Physical contact, either direct or through a Knightmare Frame, can make the process easier. Suzaku is shown pictures of his father (whom he murdered) and parts of C.C.'s memories that panic him. In another case, Anya is shown pictures from Lelouch's childhood that freeze her in amazement until contact is broken off. It tends to activate itself involuntarily in various places, e.g. when Lelouchs Geass is permanently active. This effect is described as "a merging of consciousness".


C.C. can communicate telepathically with Marianne vi Britannia. It is not known whether this is an ability that results from C.C.'s Code, Mariannes Geass or Marianne's state of un-death (and thus the "closeness" to the collective unconscious).

Geass (formerly)

Before becoming immortal, C.C.'s Geass, as he was under contract to a nun in what appeared to be medieval times, granted her the power to "be loved" that allowed her to make everyone around her

to love her. She originally started out with a Geass symbol in her left eye, but as she matured she eventually developed another one in her right eye, implying that she was no longer able to control it, which resulted in that she was loved by everyone. After C.C. Having become bored with the trance-like company around her, the nun who had bound her under the Geass contract revealed that she was C.C. tricked and seriously injured. C.C. could only survive if he accepted the nuns' code and his immortality. When she lost the code, the nun became mortal again, allowing her to commit suicide, and as part of the exchange, C.C. immune to the effects of Geass while losing her own Geass. Her Geass seal / mark is on her forehead and glows red when activated.

other skills

C.C. is a capable leader capable of rescuing Lelouch from British traps, handling firearms with some skill, and appears to be a skilled unarmed fighter as well. She is also an accomplished Knightmare pilot who is able to pilot normal Knightmare frames as well as co-pilot the Gawain with Lelouch.



Her feelings for Dash are quite hostile and may almost relate to Lelouch, but it is still unknown as Dash just looks like Lelouch and he knows a lot about her. But they share a little respect for one another and rather tense and compassionate feelings for one another.


C.C. is Lelouch's second in command and his "accomplice". The two develop a strong bond, with C.C. it allows Lelouch to drop his masks around her, while being a constant ally to confide in, while Lelouch is one of the few who shows her kindness and the fact that she is not alone what to her helps to rediscover their will to live.


  • Amber from Darker Than Black is similar to C.C. in that they are both mysterious girls who have an unknown connection to the main character (Hei and Lelouch).
  • In R2, C.C. She added two horns to her disguise as an Ashford student, making her resemble Chachamaru Karakuri from the Mahousensei Negima series.
  • C.C.'s English voice actress Kate Higgins played other leading female roles, Sakura Haruno from Naruto and Saber from Fate Stay Night.
  • C.C.'s portrayal as the Cheshire Cat in Nunnally in Wonderland will likely create an acronym play on her name.
