Member of the SOS-Dan, mover and shaker.
|“||That poor son-of-a-bitch!||”|
—Most outside observers
The SOS-Dan's resident cynic and snarker, and -- to many eyes -- Haruhi's personal manservant and lackey. Few outside the Brigade know that the two are actually married, and fewer still understand the dynamics of their relationship.
Despite being prone to apparent fits of irritation, annoyance and outright anger -- mostly at Haruhi, though frequently at life in general as well -- Kyon is paradoxically the emotional anchor which holds the SOS-Dan together. Together he and Haruhi form an axis which defines the SOS-Dan. Where she generates the ideas and the raw energy to drive them, he provides the common sense needed to ground them in reality, as well as the intelligence to help "debug" her plans and turn high-flying fantasies into achievable realities. And when Haruhi gets too extreme in her enthusiasms, Kyon is always there to puncture them and bring her back to earth.

In return Haruhi appears to treat Kyon as a personal slave, bossing him around and ordering him about. Few realize that he allows her to do this, and if he cared to could make her act less brusquely to him with just a few words. However, both enjoy the byplay between them, and wouldn't change it for anything. Beyond that, Kyon is Haruhi's trustworthy and dependable right-hand man, whom she knows from years of experience can handle practically any demand she makes of him. To his credit, Kyon lives up to her expectations.
Kyon is alone among the SOS-Dan in that his background can be traced farther back than the Brigade's launch into Fenspace. He comes from a middle-class Japanese family living in Nishinomiya City, Hyogo Prefecture, in the Kansai region. Known relatives include his parents and a younger sister. After the rise of the SOS-Dan in Fenspace, though, they quietly sold their home and vanished; attempts to locate them since have failed.
- None known (but see the SOS-dan page)
- The Only Sane Man... Is Not Here: Although he is the center point of sanity around which the SOS-Dan revolves at times, it is only by comparison to the other members. He is, after all, still with them after all these years, and explicitly supports and helps guide their efforts. However, he presents a very convincing front of being a 'Dane -- sometimes almost to the point of being a Dursley.
- Tote That Barge, Lift That Bale: Kyon is usually assigned the dirtiest, most difficult, or most inconvenient tasks by Haruhi, and accepts them with only token grumbling. He also accomplishes them, regardless of difficulty; were it not for the fact that he is never very far from Haruhi's side it would be he, not Mikuru, suspected of being Haruhi's secret enforcer.
- Running Commentary: Kyon has a habit of "narrating" his life under his breath, often engaging in long stream-of-consciousness monologues. The other members of the SOS-Dan tend to ignore this behavior, and even though Haruhi occasionally interjects her own comments and responses, Kyon does not appear to be aware that he does this.
