He lives in a very expensive condo (some think an apartment), which has a sofa, pillow (maybe has a bed not shown), table, and a kitchen inside. He comes from a wealthy family and a very complicated life. He wears glasses at home and contacts at school. He does not have a very good relationship with his family. His mother, who was from England, passed away after giving birth to him. His mother (Patricia Walker) originally had her own family, but she loved travelling to other countries even though she already had a child. Usui's father (Yuu Hirose) was originally one of the Walker family's butlers. Usui's mother fell in love with him when she was already married and already had a son, Usui was concieved after his mother was diagnosed with a disease that would ultimately end her life. She decided that she 'wanted to hold that beloved man's child with these hands. Embarrassed by Usui's mother's affair with his father, his English family concealed his existence and he was raised in secret as the adoptive son of his mother's cousin in Japan. At first he was homeschooled, because if he went to school his family background might be discovered. His family decided to raise him to a particular, unspecified age and then sever all connections with him and send him out to live on his own. Instead of risking allowing him to get a job, they sent him to high school, and he chose Seika randomly from a book. He moved out and lived alone in his condo until the age of seventeen. Now that his brother Gerard has health problems, Usui's family has started to worry as Gerard is supposed to be the next inheritor of their wealth. So they began to search for Usui to put him under their control (they asked him to transfer to Miyabigaoka) so that they would have another inheritor in case something happens to Gerard. In order to maintain his relationship with Misaki and also Misaki's safety, as she was being targeted by his family as well to force him to break his relationship with her, he agreed.Later on Usui found out that his father was a butler from the Walker Family who cared for his mother.
