He promises his friend Suzaku that he will free Japan from the tyrannical machinations.
He is enrolled at Ashford Academy and strategizes his way for overthrowing the tyranny. A mysterious girl called C.C. saves him from an impending terrorist attack and gives his Geass or the “Power of Kings.” It gives Lelouch the ability to command anyone he wants.

However, there are also specific personal battles he fights to save himself against the corrupting element of his new-gained power. He forms a radical ‘Black Knights’ group to free his empire.
