Hatsuharu Sohma is the cow or ox of the Chinese Zodiac. Hatsuharu is depicted as having a Yin and Yang personality, which mirrors the Ox's traditional personality characteristics in the zodiac. He is an older-brother figure to the younger zodiac members, and is usually calm and placid, but, if provoked, can become enraged. The Sohmas call these two sides of his personality his "white" and "black" sides; his hair is white with black roots, and his zodiac form is a black-and-white spotted Ox. He has a reputation in the family for being somewhat stupid, and when he was a child he blamed Yuki Sohma, the current Rat, for it because of the story of how the Rat tricked the Ox to become first in the zodiac. After Yuki asked Hatsuharu whether he believes he is stupid, he realized the mental trap and has since loved Yuki. Hatsuharu is in love with Rin Sohma and has an on-again/off-again secret relationship with her.
