The most popular boy at Seika High, Takumi Usui (碓氷 拓海Usui Takumi?) is the male lead of the story. He appears to take little interest in anything and prefers to observe things as they unfold. He proves to be extraordinarily talented in a number of different fields, including cooking, the violin, chess, various sports, and table etiquette. He shares a very special relationship with the President of Seika High, Ayuzawa Misaki. In chapter 57, Usui and Misaki start an official relationship.
The most popular boy at Seika High, he proves to be extraordinarily talented in a number of different fields including; cooking, playing violin, playing chess, and understanding table etiquette, showing that he is likely from a wealthy family. He's in fact an illegitimate child: his rich mother (whose maiden name is Usui) had an affair with an unknown japanese man. She died giving birth to Takumi. To keep this fact secret his english grandfather sent him to his grandmother's family in Japan, thus having little contact with his older British half-brother. Adopted by his mother's cousin, most of the education he received was through tutoring, partially explaining his academic excellence.
He grew tired and bored of this and preferred to attend a standard high school ultimately leading to his family renting him a high rise apartment in the city. During his first year, he quickly became popular among the girls but not being interested in them, he systematically rejected them when they confessed-- thus being considered like a bully by Misaki. At the beginning of his second year, he develops an interest in Misaki being the first to learn she is working at a maid café, but chooses to keep her secret. He regularly tells Misaki he likes her, but she dismisses his behavior simply as a joke or harassment. It is because of this, along with: his uncanny ability to appear whenever she needs him, his wide-ranging skills, and the fact that he survived jumping off the school's roof into the swimming pool, that Misaki often refers to him as a "perverted space alien" (or some variation thereof).
Regardless, he continually helps and watches over her, offering insightful advice on how to deal with the boys at Seika effectively and even becomes possessive of her (especially around Shintani). At one point, he tells Kanou that he doesn't want to date a girl seriously, which Kanou initially misunderstands as Usui not being serious about the President; later, however, Kanou realizes that "dating" and genuinely caring for/loving a girl are different things to Usui.
