Jeremiah Gottwald is an elite Knightmare Frame pilot deeply concerned with the maintenance of Purist supremacy within Britannian society. He is somewhat overconfident and passionate about furthering his goals, facts which tend to make him rash and impulsive in battle.
He was a part of Empress Marianne's guard, and he is deeply affected after failing to
stop her assassination. Jeremiah is disgraced after failing to move Suzaku Kururugi to
his trial when Lelouch, as Zero, uses his Geass to compel Jeremiah to help them escape.
Lelouch calls Jeremiah"Orange," suggesting a hidden connection where none exists, which
later becomes a nickname used in taunts by his peers.
