Although he has good intentions, his calculations, and intrigues have swept away the lives of countless innocent people. However, Lelouch does not let himself be influenced by emotions, and he gradually considers that sacrifice as a necessary springboard to move toward the common good.

However, everything Lelouch does is only to serve a purpose greater than his revenge, which is to build a perfect world for his beloved sister.
