Probably because he was the oldest male. I get the feeling that if Cornelia was let in on the hypothetical secret, she'd protest.

I disagree, if you mean more tactful. Will we get more background on his character? Certainly. But we are familiar with his personality and Schneizel could fling him aside like a fly before contesting the throne.

You should consider what the mythical Odyessus did before he went off to the Trojan War. I believe our Odyessus is doing the same thing.

Odysseus is the oldest though. Schneizal was probably the most capable I suppose. Meh, all will be revealed soon. I get the feeling Kallen may discover something if she finds herself back in Britannia.

Well, it really boils to whether Schneizel's back-up plan for that scenario is sufficient. The main difference of Schneizel apart from Lelouch, IMO, is that as he acknowledges his own talents, he doesn't think of anyone as stupid. If he loses, it shouldn't be from lack of anticipation.

I have to wonder how C.C. would feel about all this as well.
I agree. The battle probably wont be against Britannia in the end. It will probably be against a much greater force.

He may be a bit less arrogant then Lelouch, that is for sure.

So, what, Code Geass is actually a much-more drawn out Gurren Lagann?

Odysseus was a brilliant schemer, the originator of the Trojan Horse, the mastermind behind the plan to take back his land and his wife in Ithaca.

But, that would make him another Lelouch + Schneizel clone. And I don't know how many brilliant royal princes the story should have. Charles must have some very good genes if the only retarded son was Clovis.

Clovis was an artistic genius.

You forgot the daughters. Apart from Euphie and Cornelia, the rest seems quite air-headed. As for Nunnally, debatable whether she falls in the category.

Clovis's talents are not suitable for use on the chess board. RIP.

Maybe even against these Gods or something. I don't know whether C.C. will still be on his side though. I hope she is.

Maybe, but I'm not sure if it will get that crazy (or awesome). And I get bad vibes now with TTGL after the way it all went down in one aspect of the plot. Poor girl.

Before, during, or after the Trojan War, Odysseus is still know as a schemer in all 3 phases.

Pretty much what Lelouch and Schneizel are now.

Okay, so we have Guinevere who seems to be an extravagant schemer, and Carline who's a hawk to Nunnally's dove.


Do I see any airheadness here? No.

Throws a hint.

Ok, not airheadedness per say. But, you won't rope them in with Lelouch and Schneizel in the chess department, I'm sure.

Scheming is different from strategy-making.

I'll say that Schneizel has both. He certainly don't seem to be the kind that can only "scheme".

Odysseus doesn't strike me as a schemer. He seems the type to let everyone do things for him.

Well, he could be the "strategy" guy. We don't know if he's the "acting" type of person. To use a local slang, "act blur".

Odysseus doesn't strike me as a schemer or a strategist. Hence why Lulu called him something like "mediocre prince". I think Guinevere is the schemer and perhaps she is using him for her personal gain (in the guise of "helping" him).
