Treize is a very complex individual, playing both the chivalrous, anachronistic knight and the ruthless tyrant. On the surface, he's cold and reserved, rarely letting his emotions get the best of him. He professes a love for war, believing that when properly conducted, it brings out the best in humanity. He expresses an interest In honor and chivalry comparable to that of an old-fashioned aristocrat, believing that one should settle matters of honor in single combat, and considers himself a gentlemen. This is juxtaposed with his ruthlessness in pursuit of his ambitions and his utter lack of scruples when it comes to holding onto power.
Beneath the surface, he is fanatically loyal to his friends. He dislikes hurting people, and suffers a great deal over the deaths he's caused, especially the casualties on his side. He also seems to have some difficulty recognizing, and dealing with, his own emotions. When Lady Une, who Trieze had viewed as a pawn up until this point, Is shot in battle, he's stunned by how strongly he reacts to it, realizing that he may well have been in love with her all along. He experiences further difficulties when it comes to reconciling his personal feelings about war with his militaristic philosophy, which complicates his already complex life.
