Kaoru is the younger twin brother of Hikaru, and the pair of them share many similar personality traits: playful, mischievous, even sometimes pushing the boundary of provocative, and certain a duo of troublemakers. Even so, Kaoru and Hikaru both agree that Kaoru is the "less evil" twin, as he is less heated and more thoughtful than his older brother, painting him as the more mature twin. When the twins are together, except all kinds of shenanigans, including the ever popular "Which One is Hikaru?" game. When Kaoru is pulled apart from Hikaru, he can be selfless and genuinely kind, and the person he worries the most about in these instances is most certainly his older brother. He's incredibly loyal and devoted to anyone who he considers a friend, generally those people who make an effort to distinguish between him and Hikaru, and those who have given them a place to be themselves in the host club.
Kaoru Hitachiin is a 15 year old Japanese boy, born to a wealthy but dysfunctional family. He has an older identical twin brother, Hikaru, with whom he has developed a life-long co-dependence. The nature of their relationship meant that they often pushed other people away and kept to their own little world, until they were convinced by Tamaki Suoh to join the Ouran Host Club. As members of the club, their act is one of taboo incestuous romance between twins, though behind the scenes, Kaoru is beginning to mature and realizing that he and his brother need to learn to be their own people.
As a rich young man he knows how to be suave and charming, but he has a sneaky, devilish side that should never be overlooked. Even so, he is 10% less evil than his older brother, unfailingly loyal to his friends, and much more thoughtful than he initially appears.
Kaoru is 178 cm (5'10") tall, with short, messy auburn hair and brown eyes. He is completely identical to his brother Hikaru, with the except of their hair parts; when facing the twins, Kaoru will generally be the one with his hair parted to the left. His Ouran school uniform consists of a purple blazer and black pants, but when he's not in uniform he is usually dressed very fashionably, likely because his mother is a famous fashion designer with her own label.
Kaoru has no supernatural abilities, and he is likely as fit as the average high school student, but no more than. Because of his great wealth, he doesn't particularly need to do anything labor intensive and usually chooses not to. Most of his "abilities" come as a result of his affluence; after all, money can get anything done. Kaoru is also known to be a good artist in addition to his good grades and social awareness.
