The story takes place in 2017 a.t.b., around the time Lelouch took on the alter-ego “Zero” and built up his “Black Knights” rebellion army. The setting is in Europe, where the Euro Universe (E.U.) allied nations are being invaded by the overwhelming forces of the Holy Britannian Empire. On the verge of defeat, the E.U. army forms a special division known as “W-0″, of which a young pilot named Akito Hyuga is a member. Layla Malkal , a former Britannian Aristocrat comes to the E.U.'s aid, commanding the “Wyvern” Knightmare corps comprised of Japanese teenagers. They recklessly plunge into a battlefield, where the survival rate is extremely low, at about 5% only. They fight for their freedom, and for a "home" to which they can return. Thus begins their fight against the adult world. For more information visit the Code Geass Wiki.
The main protagonist of Code Geass: Akito the Exiled. Akito is an EU member from a unit that consists of boys and girls from Area 11. He is shown to be piloting a Knightmare Frame, the Alexander.
She is another member of the EU and she is Akito's superior. She also wears a peculiar costume. Layla Malkal, a former Britannian Aristocrat comes to the E.U.'s aid, who commands the “Wyvern” Knightmare Corps comprised of Japanese teenagers. From a recent episode, it hints that Layla may possibly have some form of Geass.
The Alexander, a new Knightmare Frame, has the concept art of an unusual-looking Knightmare Frame, whose appearance suggests Sixth-Generation or later. The Knightmare Frame is piloted by Akito Hyuga and is a special operation unit that was originally developed in the E.U. by Anna. Akira Yasuda has returned to design the mechanical Knightmare units.
The Type-02, a variation of the Alexander, is a mass produced Knightmare Frame used in the Special Forces Unit "W-O." These Knightmares are piloted by Ryo Sayama, Yukiya Naruse, and Ayano Kosaka from the "W-O" group.
