He explains that his if she announces herself as royalty, it would stop Cornelia from attacking and in doing so, protect the hostages that would otherwise die when he and his group try to escape. Nunnally however refuses to help them after they have taken innocent lives. This enrages Kusakabe, who tries to justify his action, but Nunnally explains that while she holds no loyalty to Britannia, she won't go along with his plan unless he turns himself in and stops the attack. Kusakabe laughs at this, understanding that even if Nunnally reveals her identity, she wouldn't be able to stop his execution, something Nemo agrees with. Seeing the discussion a ta stalemate, Kusakabe has one of his men bring Alice to the roof and threaten to kill her. Despite Nunnally's pleading, Alice is shot off the roof, leading Nemo to take over Nunnally's body and summon her knightmare.

In her mind, Nunnally laments how her lack of power means she can't save anyone. A visage of Lelouch then appears and explains that she already has power in the form of her geass and Mark Nemo.

Lelouch vi Britannia[]

Lelouch is the closest person in Nunnally's life. He was her brother, confidant, and caretaker all through their exile. Her only wish was to remain with Lelouch, the one she loved above all others. It was Lelouch’s supposed death that motivated her to make a pact with Nemo and fight against Britannia. When she lamented her own lack power power, it was a visage of Lelouch that convinced her to use the powers Nemo gave to her.


Alice is Nunnally's best friend, from Nightmare of Nunnally. Nunnally first encountered Alice when she defended her and beat up 3 bullies while on her way to class. They next properly met on top of a roof during a festival at Ashford, Nunnally had already recognized Alice as the new transfer student in her class who had also defended her that time. Since then, Nunnally and Alice have been very close and Alice has always come to Nunnally's aid when she's in trouble. Despite their friendship, Alice feels somewhat guilty due to the fact that she's really a Britannian soldier on an observation mission to Ashford, a fact she hides from Nunnally. While hacking into the Ashford computer database one night, Alice discovers Nunnally and Lelouch's real identities and that the Ashfords have been hiding them from the Empire. While it's her duty to report this to her superiors, Alice deletes the files instead and stays silent about it due to the fact that Nunnally is her best and only friend.

After saving Nunnally from Mao who had kidnapped her, Alice decides that Nunnally is no longer safe and makes it her goal to become a Britannian Knight in order to protect her. Alice is shocked to find that pilot of Mark Nemo is none other than Nunnally. After she is captured and imprisoned, Alice confronts her and Nunnally realizes that Alice is a Britannian soldier and asks if she's just been lying to her the entire time while pretending to be her friend and though Alice tries to explain, Nunnally rejects her. When Alice finds out Nunnally is to be executed, she tries to kill Rolo Vi Britannia but is imprisoned herself. She then makes a contract with Nemo and assists Zero, Suzaku and Euphemia in rescuing Nunnally.

After taking Nunnally to the Sword of Akasha and confronting her parents, Alice plays a vital role in stopping their plan to initiate the Ragnarök Connection by confessing to Nunnally that she loves her, thus confirming Nunnally's beliefs about hope and happiness in the world and also enabling her to regain the use of her legs along with her sight. Later on, when Nunnally becomes a goodwill ambassador, she and Alice talk over all that has happened and Nunnally asks Alice to become her official knight and be by her side into the future which Alice happily and tearfully accepts.


After the death of her mother, Nunnally is left unable to walk, and later her father casts his Geass on her causing her to believe that she is blind. Despite her blindness, she is capable of seeing Nemo while no one else can.

She possesses somewhat of a sixth sense in regards to Lelouch, as she was instantly able to tell that he was in danger when Britannian military cornered him.


Nemo's Geass

Nemo using Nunnally's geass.

In exchange for the darkness in Nunnally heart, Nemo granted Nunnally the power for fulfil her wishes. a skill functionally identical to precognition. A red, bird-like sigil lights up in Nemo's left eye when the ability is activated. When combined with their Knightmare Frame, the Mark Nemo, Nunnally and Nemo are unstoppable on the battlefield, since every move is known to them beforehand. In the anime, this type of Geass is used by Bismarck, the Knight of One; however, his is slightly different, in that it only reads a specific person's "line", rather than that of the future in general. However, there is a side effect to using the Geass as shown when Nunnally is forced to be confined in a bed due to extensive use of her powers.
