General Tatewaki Katase is the leader of the Japan Liberation Front. He led the forces on the Battle of Narita and survived it, planning to escape Area 11. He and the remaining JLF members retreated to Port Yokosuka on a freighter. But, the Britannian Military discovered their location and another battle ensues, with the Britannians planning to kill all JLF members except Katase who was their main target. Meanwhile, Zero (Lelouch vi Britannia) plants a bomb under the freighter which he later detonates, killing Katase and the rest of the Japan Liberation Front members that were with their General.
