Character HistoryEditBefore the beginning of the series, Genbu Kururugi was the Prime Minister of Japan and the father of Suzaku Kururugi. He later receives Lelouch and Nunnally as hostages. When Britannia began its invasion of Japan, Genbu refused to surrender, preferring unending resistance against Britannia. It was reported in the media that Genbu Kururugi had committed suicide in order to stop the all-out war against Britannia.
The only other times Genbu was seen, was during flashbacks and when C.C. transmitted memories into Suzaku during the Battle of Narita.
After Suzuku and Lelouch save Nunnally from Mao, Suzaku planned to arrest Mao. However, in order to get a chance to escape, Mao uses his Geass on Suzaku. He reveals that Genbu Kururugi was actually murdered by his own son. He planned on a do or die resistance, however Suzaku killed him believing that it would stop the war. In the aftermath of that incident, the truth behind Genbu's death was covered up in order to protect Suzaku.
Appearances in Other MediaEdit
In the novel "issue zero" it is revealed that Suzaku killed his father months before the fighting officially started. After hearing that his father will sacrifice the Japanese military by refusing to surrender to Britannia, Genbu also plans to kill Nunnally as a political favor to an un-named member of the royal family. The thought of his closest friends being killed is what prompts the ten year old boy into action. Taizo Kirihara and Kyoshiro Tohdoh were the only others at the scene who knew about what had actually happened.
