Toudou Kyoushirou is the head of the Black Knights' military operations, and an extremely talented fighter in his own right. He earned the nickname Tohdou of Miracles for his singular defeat of the otherwise unstoppable Holy Britannian Empire during the invasion of Japan, remarkably managing this feat without the use of Knightmare Frames. This event would later be known as the Miracle of Itsukushima. He was a childhood instructor to Suzaku Kururugi, and is one of the few Japanese people who understands his ideals. Tohdou is often seen bearing a katana at his side. He is initially a member of the Japan Liberation Front, and resigns himself to death when the organization is wiped out, but Zero convinces him to join the Black Knights in order to fulfill the promise of victory created by the Miracle of Itsukushima. Like Kaname, he remains faithful to Zero following his capture during the Black Rebellion, reasoning that Zero must have had a good reason not to inform his troops about his plans. He later leads Black Knight forces in liberation operations throughout the Chinese Federation and the Middle East before being named Chief of Staff of the newly reorganized Black Knights which serve as the national army of the UFN.
