Odysseus eu Britannia (オデュッセウス ウ ブリタニア, Odeyusseusu u Buritania) was the First Prince of the Britannian Imperial Family who takes after his father's young appearance.
Though in law he is the Crown Prince and first-in-line to succeed the throne, his performance in many areas is quite inferior to that of his younger brother, Schneizel, causing Lelouch to refer to him "the mediocre prince." He does oversee certain state matters and projects, such as approving the Citizen Rehabilitation Program, which provided aid and amnesty to reformed Britannian crminals. He does not show much decisiveness, often simply deferring to Schneizel when unforseen (and some forseen) circumstances come up. He shows no real malevolence or ambition, coming off as a somewhat kind man in his dealings with his (what turns out to be discontinued) fianceé, Tianzi. In his free time, he enjoys lively events, such as KMF League matches. He was also recorded playing lion cubs at his visit to the San Diego Safari for an inspection. He was considered very cute by Sokkia Sherpa and Toto Thompson.
Odysseus makes his first but brief appearance attending his younger brother Clovis' funeral while the Emperor of Britannia, his father, makes a speech on the virtues of inequality and the social struggle for evolution and betterment.
He reappears during the meeting in the Britannian homeland. Since Odysseus is informed that in addition to the troubles in Area 11, a Chinese fleet has been spotted in the East China Sea. An officer asks Odysseus to appoint a commanding officer for the force that was about to depart. However, Odysseus was preoccupied with the results of Euphemia's massacre. Schneizel takes charge and volunteers to take up the position.
In the second season, he is engaged to the much younger Empress of the then Chinese Federation in a marriage of political convenience, orchestrated by Schneizel in order to peacefully seize the Federation's territory. When the marriage fails as a result of a coup d'etat instigated by Li Xingke and furthered by the Black Knights, Odysseus does not mind and is not offended by the broken engagement.After not seeing or heard anything about the whereabouts of the Emperor, Charles zi Britannia for an entire month, he along with the other members of the imperial family are supposed to meet with him. However, Odysseus is shocked to see Lelouch who was thought to have been dead. When Lelouch announces that he is the next emperor after admitting he killed Charles, Guinevere orders the Royal Guards to execute him for it. Suzaku makes an appearance knocking back the Royal Guards and was appointed the title, Knight of Zero. Believing that all of this was an elaborate joke, Odysseus tries to take control of the situation by telling Lelouch that he was sitting on the throne of their father and that this is being broadcast live internationally.
However, Odysseus, Carine, Guinevere, and the entirety of the imperial court are put under Geass by Lelouch to acknowledge him as their new Emperor. Afterwards, he is recruited into the Britannian military as a regular foot soldier. He can be presumed dead as one of the people last seen in Pendragon before the F.L.E.I.J.A. was fired.
- His name refer to king of Ithaca and a hero of Homer's epic poem the Odyssey in Greek Mythology.
- Odysseus (Ὀδυσσεύς) means wrath.
