Grew Up... as the son of Japan’s last prime minister, before Japan was conquered by the Britannian empire and renamed Area 11. Suzaku was childhood friends with Lelouch, an exiled member of the Britannian royal family, but Britannia's invasion and the death of Suzaku’s father cause the two to become separated.
Living... as an honorary Britannian. After seeing the horrors of war and his father’s death, Suzaku joined the Britannian military in hopes of changing the corrupt system from within. However, it's a decision that has caused him to be ostracized by other Japanese citizens, who believe him to be merely an opportunistic traitor. Suzaku, however, knows the truth and believes that he is doing the right thing.
Profession... soldier, and pilot of Lancelot, an advanced but experimental fighting machine. (It’s called a “mecha,” a humanoid robot.) After nearly being killed trying to save Lelouch, Suzaku’s skill and courage are noticed by the head of the research division, who recruit him to test the potentially dangerous weapon. In both Lancelot and on land, Suzaku is a skilled soldier, frequently defeating enemies with his flashy but deadly jump kicks.
Interests... cats, although the feeling isn’t mutual. Also friendship, but he has trouble making friends as both Britannians and Japanese dislike him for his honorary status as a Britannian.
Relationship Status... single, but perhaps not for long. Suzaku wasn't looking for love and he certainly “wasn't expecting a girl to come falling” into his life. But ever since Euphie literally falls on him from a window, he can't help but be smitten with the pretty, idealistic girl.
Challenge... ending the “unending cycle of hatred” of war. Suzaku has no definite plan how he's going to do this, but he's willing to sacrifice his life to help create a “world without war." Yet despite pursuing the same goals, Suzaku and Lelouch have such different philosophies that they frequently end up fighting each other instead of their common enemy.
Personality... idealistic and almost entirely selfless. Unlike Lelouch, Suzaku decidedly does not believe the ends are worth the means, and he is willing to fight to the death to prevent anyone else from getting hurt. But while laudable, Suzaku's idealism is also his greatest weakness, making him easy prey for more cunning enemies.
