First SeasonEditAfter arriving with the Glaston knights in Area 11, his team acts as Cornelia's personal guard. Towards the conclusion of the Black Rebellion, his team helps to fight off the Black Knights and capture a large portion of their members in the Assault on Tokyo Settlement.
In the second season, Claudio and fellow Glaston Knights' members appear while Zero announces his return and declaration of formation of the United States of Japan. During the scheduled execution of the captured members of the Black Knights he fights to stop the prisoners from escaping. He and Edgar then agree to duel Knight of the Round Gino Weinberg, who was testing the security of Area 11's Government Building.He is seen again alongside Guilford, David and Edgar during Nunally's Special Administrative Zone of Japan in case of any terrorist attacks or quell any riots. After Zero appears on screen giving his message, all one million people release smoke and change into Zero. Confused by the events, Edgar tells his brothers to kill Zero. However, they were unable to tell who the real Zero was and under Suzaku's order to not kill any of them was forced to let them all go. During the Second Assault on Tokyo Settlement, he is seen defending the government bureau piloting a Gareth against Asahina and Chiba along with David and Edgar. Claudio nearly takes the life of Chiba but is intercepted by Asahina. In the midst of the battle, Claudio loses his remaining brothers as they were killed by Chiba and Tohdoh. He escapes the F.L.E.I.J.A. that was fired by Suzaku under the influence of Lelouch's Geass. Claudio is the one who orders the retreat, allowing most of the Empire's forces to escape the blast radius. He is later shown registering citizens who escaped the F.L.E.I.J.A. in Ashford Academy and is again seen on Horai Island, asking Villetta about Cornelia's condition.
