Kanon Maldini is a subordinate of Schneizel el Britannia, serving as a
political and military adviser. While celebrating Tianzi's marriage to Prince Odysseus,
he makes a joke to Milly Ashford about being Schneizel's assistant in both public
and private matters, only to wave it off shortly thereafter.
Kanon follows Suzaku to the Kururugi Temple in order to investigate and capture Zero;
while there, he obtains conclusive evidence not only of the masked terrorist's identity,
but also of the existence of Geass. This evidence proves essential in convincing the
leaders of the Black Knights to betray Zero. When Schneizel decides to stage a coup d'etat,
Kanon notes that he's finally made the decision, but seems apprehensive about it. During the
battle above Mt. Fuji he is aghast at Schnizel's decision to arm the F.L.E.I.J.A.
warhead to destroy Damocles as a means of killing Lelouch; he is also surprised at Schneizel's
willingness to sacrifice Nunnally.
He is taken captive by a Britannian officer under the control of Geass, looking on as
Schneizel himself is taken control of by Lelouch. He is present when Lelouch vi Britannia
announces his intention to control the world, and last seen being taken to execution along
with the others who rebelled against Lelouch. His fate after the death of Lelouch is unknown.
