There's a mini interview in Newtype. Ichirō Ōkouchi (story originator and head writer) and Jun Fukuyama (Lelouch's VA) talks about the girls in Code Geass. I think it's the first time Ōkouchi talks about the supporting characters.
  


3. C.C. - The Girl That Lived in Loneliness
Left page, starting from upper left corner:
The Wish Is "Death" (nothing new)
Contract With Lelouch (nothing new)
What's The Museum of Memories?
This is a museum that keeps and displays C.C.'s memories. It seems to be the World of C. When Lelouch is lost inside, he met the "C.C. in memories".
Another C.C.
In the World of C, Lelouch gets a peek at C.C.'s memories. Then another C.C. shows up. With no mark (Code) on her forehead, she is "C.C. in memories". She's a messenger that tells Lelouch about her past and ... (too blurry to make out)
Memories Lost
During the contact with the Emperor, C.C. become a mere human. At the same time, she lost all memory about Geass. And of course, about Lelouch.
Promise between brothers, 55 years ago
Older brother, V.V., and younger brother, Charles, made a promise to destroy this world of lies. After depriving V.V. of his Code, Charles vows to challenge the gods on his own. Then he robbed another Code from C.C.

Lower left corner is Hitomi Kuroishi's 1st album. The insert songs Innocent Days, Masquerade, Alone, and Stories will be in there.

The top of the right page is the chat between Ōkouchi & Fukuyama. Basically they avoided anything important/spoilerish.
Childhood Alone (describes her slave days)
Encountering the Sister Knowing C.C.'s desire to live, the sister binds a "Geass" contract with her.
Obtaining Geass (nothing new)
Days With Marianne
Before long, after gaining the immortal powers with the Code, C.C. shows up in Britannia. There she met her friend, also Lelouch's mother, the one who's known as Marianne the Flash. Before long, Marianne marries Emperor Charles.
Lower right is about the WORLD END single.


4. Kouzuki Kallen - The Warrior That Continues Believing in Zero.
From Terrorists To The Black Knights
Trusting in Zero? or Lelouch?
Live As A Japanese
Meeting Nunnally and Suzaku Again
Versus Knight of Rounds Luciano
Back in Battlefield!
(Above are all reviews. Allow me to skip it. XD)

Interview
Ōkouchi: Lelouch and Kallen's relationship changes after she knows Zero's identity.
Fukuyama: Well, honestly, to Lelouch, I don't think Kallen will become a love interest. *laughs* Kallen is the type that doesn't worry too much. She stands up and acts right away. When she needs an answer she asks away. I think she's a totally different type from Lelouch.
Ōkouchi: Well, Lelouch is the type that worries too much. *laughs* Kallen also has two roles, Stadtfeld of Britannia and Kozuki of Japan, which she played separately in an awkward way. While Lelouch is using lies to play the role of Zero and a student separately, she's not lying in either of them.
Fukuyama: Like what Kallen said in season 1, "this character setting is so wrong for me!" (in Stage 3) *laughs*

Note: Don't jump to conclusions. ;) A VA's opinion doesn't affect the story's direction. Kallen's VA also picks on Zero/Fukuyama a lot off-screen. (Ōkouchi, however, is the storywriter. His opinions do matter. And it looks like he's gonna say something before getting shot down. XD)


5. Kaguya Sumeragi - Zero's Wife and the Pillar of Japan.
Becoming Zero's Wife
Kaguya Sumeragi, one of the Kyoto 6, is a fan of Zero and claims herself to be Zero's newly wed wife.
Interaction With Tianzi
Tianzi, the leader of China, is actually a lonely girl. Also called "merely a figurehead" and isolated by the Kyoto 6 in the past, Kaguya understands Tianzi became Tianzi's first friend. "It's not a political problem, it's a matter of love!" Kaguya supports the love between Tianzi and Xingke. Their will moves the world.
Three Court Ladies in The Black Knights
"The saying goes that heroes like their women." Kaguya is being generous to Zero's secret love affairs. *laugh* Mistaken C.C. and Kallen as Zero's lovers, she joined hands with them.
Waiting and Believing In Zero's Victory
Zero is making unexpected moves. But no matter what he does, Kaguya believes him. With her charisma, she becomes Black Knight's symbol when Zero is absent.

Interview
Supporting the Black Knights as Zero's wife and leader of Japan, hidden under her pure smile, is her deep and passionate love for Japan.
Fukuyama: I think she's the only person who won't be shaken by the fact that Zero is Lelouch. She's like "as long as Japan can be taken back, him being a Britannian prince is also okay". She is the type that makes judgements based on the essence.
Ōkouchi: She is also a person tied down by her position. Therefore I think she can understand the reason why Lelouch has to live under all kinds of masks.
Fukuyama: She's the generous type of woman that can tolerate lies, right?


6. Rakshata Chawla: The scientist that watches over Zero.
Unclear Past
The Hindu researcher Rakshata's past is surrounded by mysteries. What we know is she was classmates with the Britannian official Lloyd. They were already rivals back then, and now the competition intensifies.

Interview
Ōkouchi: Her stance is never blurred. She's a grown-up who can draw a clear line between what's important to her and what's not. (彼女はスタンスが、まったくブレていないひとで、自分にとって大事なものと必要でないものをしっかり線引 きできる大人なんです。) Therefore, knowing Zero's true identity doesn't change her stance. She's a person that can accept him.
Fukuyama: Even though the Black Knights are said to be "allies of justice", she makes mechs by her own way. A Knightmare with huge claws looks totally like an ally of evil. *laughs*
Ōkouchi: Rakshata started out as a researcher in medical cybernetics. Her goal is different from Lloyd, who is merely in love with mechs.
Fukuyama: Seems like she can handle Jeremiah's maintenance as well. *laughs*

The theme this month is the magic number "3":
  

Lelouch's 3 Troublesome Family Members
1. Pitiable Brother - Rolo.
2. Immortal Dad - Emperor.
He became immortal after robbing the Codes from V.V. and C.C. Now all he cares about is "the World of C", and lets Schenizel take care of everything in "this world" for him.
3. Mysterious Mom - Marianne.
When C.C. is talking to herself, she seems to be talking to Marianne, although we don't see her. Why is there an another person there?
The mysterious behaviors of the Emperor and the relationship with Marianne are related to the "World of C". A must-see in Turn 21 is about Marianne's assassination. As for Rolo, he's at a big turning point in Turn 19. Lelouch's family is going to have a hard time! (by a member of Sunrise, Code Geass team)

3 worlds with a dim future
1. Tokyo Settlement Targeted. (nothing new)
2. Black Knights Targeted By Schenizel.
The Order of the Black Knights became the center of UFN's forces. Schenizel is trying to knock in a wedge into it. With Kallen captured, the relationship between Ougi and Villetta, and Toudou and Diethard not reaching consensus, holding such a big organization together seems to be really hard. (Turn19)
3. Britannia Targeted by "Emperor".
The Emperor mentioned "slaying the god(s)". And he cares about nothing other than the "World of C" now. What is he planning? That's something even V.V. didn't know.

Multiple of 3: The 99th Emperor Ascends?
Charles is the 98th Emperor of Britannia. He's given a strong image of dictator. But all he care about is Geass and the World of C, and turns a blind eye to business in his own country. The Emperor missing will bring problems in court. It's not surprising for succession problems to surface. The next Emperor will be multiple of 3, the 99th! Will it be the first one in succession, Odyssus? Or the greedy first princess Guinevere? Or the one who has the real ability, Schenizel? However, General Bartley told Cornelia that "His Majesty is trying to destroy the world". Considering that, maybe there won't be a 99th Emperor.
Order of succession: #1 is Odyssus, and #2 is Guinevere. Schenizel is #3?
