Kyoya recalls for Haruhi how he and his polar opposite, Tamaki, became associated. As the third son of the Otori family, Kyoya will inherit nothing of the Otori family business or fortune but is still expected to achieve highest marks and behave dutifully. Tamaki is the only heir to the wealthy Suou family with whom the Otoris do business. Since the two boys are classmates, Kyoya is ordered to become Tamaki's friend. He obeys, but Tamaki easily gets under his skin and puts his teeth on edge. He's undisciplined, ego-centric, frequently taken over by whims of extraordinary fancy, and unbound by duty, leaving Kyoya both uncharacteristically frustrated and frequently seething. Nevertheless, Tamaki does have one surprising talent - keen and sudden insight. Written by statmanjeff

Tamaki Suou: Hm?
Kyoya Otori: It's just the way things are. You wouldn't understand because you'll be successor to your family's estate without even having to lift a finger.
Kyoya Otori: [in thought] Damn it.
Tamaki Suou: It's not certain that I'll be the Suou family successor. My grandmother doesn't like ...
