Geass - The Power of Kings

Geass is said to be the power of kings. But what exactly is Geass? Where did Geass originate from? What Geass does a certain character have? If you want the answers, then find out below.

What is Geass?

(Spoilers Ahead!)

Described by C.C. as the "Power of Kings", Geass is an ability that can be transferred by a means of a contract. The Geass is a special ability that varies from user to user, and due to this fact, its power and limitations are not completely known.

From what is known so far, a Geass is given to a regular person by an immortal. The immortal was once a Geass user, but has received a "code" to become immortal, and is now able to transfer Geass abilities to any number of people. The series focuses on two immortals: C.C. and V.V. It is not known whether the user loses his name gains the initials, or whether this choice is voluntary.

General facts of Geass:
  • The Geass symbol is concealed in the eyes. At first, the user has it in one eye, but later as the Geass becomes stronger, it appears in both eyes.
  • The geass has a radius that varies depending upon its abilitites.
  • At some point, it becomes potentially harder to control as it grows stronger, and it activates without the user wanting it. An example of this is when Lelouch accidentally orders Euphemia to kill all Japanese.
  • There is a special contact lens that prevents the user from activating the Geass.
Lelouch's geass Ability: Absolute Obedience
Given by: C.C.

Lelouch

Lelouch received his Geass from CC. The ability to give a command with complete obedience. Some requirements of the Geass is to have eye contact with the person having Geass cast on them. His Geass has the properties of light and the eye contact can be met through reflections. A drawback to his Geass is that it will only work on a given person once, after that they become immune to the power. Lelouch eventually loses control of his Geass and needs the aid of special contacts to contain his power.

Lelouch

Lelouch's geass is widely seen throughout the series, and is by far the most popular in terms of power. Granted by C.C., his geass is the ability of absolute command by the user, Lelouch. This allows him to force those around him to commit anything and everything Lelouch commands them too. Though this is inevitably dangerous, this geass can only be used once for every person that Lelouch may encounter. Direct eye contact is also substantial for this geass to be launched.

Rolo's geass Ability: Time Warp
Given by: V.V.

Rolo

Rolo was raised through the Geass order and received his powers from VV. His Geass gave him the ability to halt any person’s, within the effect range, sense of time. He was trained to be the perfect assassin because of this particular Geass. The drawback to his Geass is that it causes a heart attack to himself every time he uses it. This will lead to great consequences as the story plays out.

Rolo

As seen in the anime, Rolo's geass is greatest for assassination assignments. His geass can stop time for a short period of time, even the sense of time of those around him. This manipulation of time is a grand advantage against several foes, yet a burden is also certain to Rolo. In time with his geass in go, Rolo's heart is inevitably going to stop due to its confusion of time, leading to further hazards for Rolo.

Given by: C.C.

If Mao focuses he is able to read the deepest thoughts of anyone. Mao loses control of his Geass is unable to stop himself from reading the mind of everyone around him. This inability to stay out of peoples mind causes him to have an obsession/lust for CC who is immune to all Geass abilities.

Mao

A once faithful friend of C.C., Mao has lost content in life due to loss of control of his Geass. Mao attained this ability by C2 just as Lelouch did. His Geass has the capability to hear in the minds of those around him; a rather unusual power for a Geass. Hence, this proves annoying and simply painful in large crowds for Mao, for he hears the thoughts of every other civilian around him.

Jeremiah's geass Ability: Geass Cancellor
Given by: V.V.

Jeremiah

Jeremiah was nearly killed in battle before taken in as an experiment led by Bartley and Schniezel. What Jeremiah has is not a true Geass but a Geass canceller. He has the ability to erase all the effects that having a Geass being cast on a person does. He is also virtually immune to Geass as well because he is immediately able to remove its effects.

Description written by lelouch of the rebellion

Jeremiah

Jeremiah's Geass proves extremely useful within battle with other Geass users. With the help of V2, Jeremiah has what is called a 'Geass Canceller'. This initially enables him to negate the effects of any geass cast upon him. Also, his ability can be applied to non-geass users, for the cancelling power can restore memories lost by another in-affect geass.
