C.C. not represented as a chess piece could also mean that she is one that does not need to follow Lelouch's order which differentiates her from the others such as the Black Knights. Kallen, as some people have suggested, is the queen (derived from her code name "Q1". But does that mean she is the most important person besides Lelouch? Personally I don't believe so. In fact, I believe this actually works against her overall importance. She may be the most important piece in the "chess game" Lelouch is playing but she is only important in this aspect. Which is in contrast to C.C. as she is free from being Lelouch's pawn, free from being merely a simple chess piece.
