*- One word for their personalities is "dry." Very avid about things they are interested in but quite apathetic toward things they are not.
*- Unlike Tamaki, they are wholly calculating in their customer relations. They think women are easy. Still, they're just kids, so they sometimes do unexpected things. (i.e. In "Hunny's Bun-bun," they were "pretending to be scared," but in the end, they were genuinely upset.)
*- They're not really partial to spicy foods, so much as being contrary by eating whatever's "so fiery that nobody else dares try it." They do love maple syrup, though. Perhaps not the most ideal dining companions.
Hikaru and Kaoru Hitachiin are first-year students at Ouran High School. They are twins who have a very close, personal brotherly relationship. They used to think the world was filled with idiots until only a few years ago. Their world is very small, and it is only recently, when Tamaki recruited them into the club, that their world has expanded even just a little bit.
The twins have a certain technique when it comes to their clients. They play off on their extremely deep relationship as the customers love the forbidden thought of incest between them. They are very calculating in whatever they do since they think women are easy, the exact opposite of Tamaki. They do love to tease and flirt with the girls though. If something's interesting to them, they will go along with it, but once they're bored, they discard it.
People usually couldn't tell them apart until Haruhi came into the picture. She can easily distinguish between the two of them, bypassing their usual tricks, which no one has ever done before. Thanks partly to her, their world of "us" and "them" has been invaded. They love to tease and touch Haruhi because it (sometimes) gets her flustered and it also breaks Tamaki out of his funks and gets him jealous. Somehow, they're always grabbing, hugging, or getting close to Haruhi. They also love to dress her up as a girl.
The twins are particularly mischievous and trouble-making since they love to be daring and have fun whenever possible. They have a type of cool and laid-back, but insolent attitude. But despite their joking manner, they can get serious. Seriousness, however, only usually happens when they're alone and they can talk things out. They also get genuinely upset when somethings happens to the other twin.
They are good at fashion, and cutting and styling hair. They're always changing their hair styles. One day, it's slicked, another day it can be spiky. They also part their hair differently, which is how you can tell them apart. From a reader's POV, Hikaru parts his hair to the right, while Kaoru parts his hair to the left. Their good looks also come from their mother. They have no known siblings (aside from each other), which is another explanation for their very small world.
