Joseph Fenette (ジョセフ フェネット, Josefu Fenetto) (1972-2017) is the father of Shirley Fenette, one of Lelouch's classmates in the series, Joseph Fenette was the only character on the Code Geass series that have never made a live appearance. In fact, he is only shown through media like television, or through flashback.
In the Code Geass light novels, he is said to be one of the scientists that worked on Code R under Bartley Asprius, as an explanation for why he is caught in the Narita landslide after Narita is evacuated. The anime series provides no explicit reason for his presence.
Though it is never shown in the series, he seems to be a caring and loving father toward his daughter and wife as seen during the hostage crisis at Lake Kawaguchi, where he criticized the terrorists on live television and pleaded for them to release his daughter immediately. When Shirley was still a young girl, she innocently said that she want to "marry" her father, but he told her that Shirley will find another man that she will love more than him, and that would make him happy. His death during the Narita landslide caused great sorrow for his family, so much that on his funeral, when a man is filling up his grave, his wife has an emotional breakdown, telling them that she doesn't want her husband to be buried again, implying that she had a great relationship with her husband when he was still alive. His death also caused Shirley to kiss Lelouch for the first time in her depression.
