Before Haruhi attends Ouran Academy, she's described as a pretty girl as seen in flashbacks when she had long hair and wore a girl's uniform.
However, upon entering Ouran Academy, this image changes drastically.
In return, the male hosts are quite protective of their "secret princess" and regard her with respect and affection in spite of any antics they may demonstrate.
The Fujioka Family includes: Haruhi, Ryoji and Kotoko (deceased).
When Haruhi was only five years old, Kotoko died due to an unspecified illness.
When first introduced in the anime, she sports a nerdy, boyish look that differs greatly from her middle-school appearance.
Having gotten gum in her hair just before school begins, she cuts it short and being unable to afford the expensive Ouran uniform, she wears shapeless, baggy clothing.
Haruhi's appearance outside of Ouran Academy varies.
