Summary

 

Somewhere in Europe, Cecile records a progress report following a battle with the E.U. The Bolodin conflict began a week earlier with an increased mobilization by E.U. forces, but in the end they were defeated by Britannia. Cecile notes that Suzaku, now the Knight of Seven, cut off enemy supply lines. She adds that the tide of battle turned after the fall of General Barclay, but Suzaku interrupts and comments that Cecile's report sounds a bit exaggerated. Cecile notes to herself that despite being a Knight of the Round now, Suzaku hasn't changed at all. Suzaku thinks that Prince Schneizel El Britannia deserves the credit for ordering the Rounds to intervene, but Knight of Six Anya Alstreim notes that the Rounds wouldn't have been dispatched if Suzaku hadn't turned the tide of the battle. Knight of Three Gino Weinberg thinks too much modesty isn't a good thing, but Suzaku explains that he's not good at taking compliments. Cecile dramatically narrates the situation, and Gino tells Suzaku that he's weird. Suzaku hears a noise and runs over to a nearby pile of debris. He pulls a young girl out of the rubble, and Cecile is surprised that Suzaku could hear that. The young girl explains that she was waiting for the soldiers to leave and that her father should be nearby. Suzaku asks Cecile to have Lloyd prepare a bed for the girl, and Cecile asks if they should use the Avalon. Suzaku thinks it would be faster if he took the Lancelot Air Cavalry, but the girl suddenly recoils at the name. The girl calls Suzaku a murderer and accuses him of murdering her father and brother. She also calls him an ogre and vows to never forgive him, but she suddenly goes silent when Anya shoots her with a tranquilizer dart. Gino quotes that the strong win and the weak die, but Suzaku disagrees and thinks the strong should protect the weak. Several of Charles' men land nearby and tell Suzaku that they have to escort him to the victory celebration. Charles passed along a message that Suzaku did the work of a kishin, and Suzaku explains that in Japanese it means "oni," or ogre. Gino doesn't think that name fits, but Suzaku thinks it does because he's a traitor who killed countless people. Suzaku asks Cecile to take care of the girl and says if he helped her, she might lose her hatred for him. Cecile thinks to herself that Suzaku is travelling down a difficult and painful path.

 

Commentary

 

Like the previous picture drama, this one is also set before the start of Code Geass R2. This one takes us to some European battlefield where Suzaku and several other Knights of the Round have been fighting and acheived a victory. This drama adds Knights Gino and Anya to the mix and comes with Gino's usual teasing of Suzaku. The mood changes when Suzaku rescues a girl who accuses him of killing her family. As Gino notes, Suzaku is a weird guy, and he thinks that he deserves to be hated for the things that he's done.
