 Comics Hamlet's Keeper: Responsibility (cameo)

Julian is one of the supporting characters of Candy Series and the older brother of Joni. He made an early bird cameo in Hamlet's Keeper: Responsibility and his official debut in Top of the Class: Academics.


Early Life

When Julian was still little, he made a decision to be a lawyer when he became older. This was because when he was 11 years old, Irwin somehow surprised him with a frog during a camping trip hence making him scared and shocked. It ended up with him crying and told his teacher what Irwin did to him. But since it was a small incident and was not done on purpose, the teacher dismissed it and even laughed at it.

This made Julian feel that this is unfair, so he decided to become a lawyer when he grows up in order to judge people fairly.

  • Julian's full appearance.
  • Julian's good looks attracts Class 5A girls.

Julian is a relatively tall person in the model of a fine young man. He has messy pink hair (which he inherited from his mother) and blue irises. His eyebrows are usually portrayed as red on the book covers, but sometimes pink or black in the comic. Julian was often seen wearing normal street clothes and hoodies.

Julian is also described to be rather attractive, as Joni's classmates were all surprised that her older brother is a handsome young man.


Julian appears as a matured, serious and calm individual. He has a habit of teasing and pranking his little sister, Joni and occasionally attempts to pester her whenever he sees flaws or possible impacts in her actions. He is occasionally seen (comically) smacking Joni whenever he is annoyed with her.

Julian is also assumed to be a rather aloof and distant person, and occasionally tends to stay at home or go out on his own. A running gag in the series is that Joni often teases him for not having many friends and him not having a girlfriend.

Despite his maturity and seriousness, there are still some occasions (used as a form of comic relief) where he reverts to his childish and prideful behavior. One noticeable time was in Starstruck!: Fandom, when he was shown to be quite prideful for his looks- supported by the fact that Joni's classmates (especially Jane) were all awed by his fine appearance. Another time was when he ordered numerous dishes when Irwin invited him for dinner and him knowing that the latter was the one who was paying for the food.
