Tamaki Suoh is a second-year student at Ouran High School and the founder and president of the Host Club. While flamboyant and narcissistic, he is very dedicated to his duty as a host. He is the Prince type to "entertain" customers. He is partial to classic piano music and plays quite well, one of his favorites being Mozart's Sonata for Two Pianos in D major. He, like Hunny, also has a stuffed animal, a teddy called Kuma-chan. The main comic relief character of the series, Tamaki can be viewed as outspoken and naive for his age, he has a dense approach to his own feelings though he is very perceptive about other people's. Tamaki is half-Japanese and half-French, and lives with his father, the wealthy superintendent of Ouran Academy. They both live separately from his French mother because of a deal between his mother and his bitterly cold paternal grandmother. Despite his grandmother being the reason he can't see his mother, he is very gentle to her, and is constantly trying to get her to accept him as a part of the Suoh family.
