Akito Hyuga is the main protagonist in the OVA Series, Code Geass: Akito The Exiled. He is a former Eleven who is now fighting for the Europia United in their fight against Britannia. He is the brother of Shin Hyuga Shing, the current leader of the Knights of St. Micheal. He is part of a unit called the W-0, a group of young exiles from Area 11 (Formerly Japan). He is also known to his enemies as "Hannibal's Ghost."


Akito Hyuga may be considered to be mentally unstable, as he enjoys battles while at the same time a calm person in normal circumstances. He also has a lack of emotion and doesn't show it or express them in anyway. When he is under the effects of Geass, he becomes much more bloodthirsty and is willing to brutally kill his enemies such as when he uses his Knightmare Frame to target the cockpits Of his enemies' Knightmare Frames in the battlefield. He claims that he "died before " and claims to see the spirit of his fallen comrades. This seems to show his mental instability. It would seem that he possess a strong hatred towards his brother, Shin Hyuga Shing for reasons unknown, as seen when Akito met his brother again his calm demeanor was turned into rage. He claims that he would kill his brother the next time they would meet again.
