The son of a noble family, Tsukasa acts with a chivalrous spirit as his core, so he's more composed than others his age. While he's responsible and serious, he can also be childish and short-tempered. His singing voice is honest and direct, and his performances are powerful yet elegant.
I am Tsukasa Suou of New Dimension. I am a member of the majestic idol unit Knights, who hold chivalry in the highest esteem—in fact, if I may be so presumptuous, I serve as the unit leader. While I spearhead Knights as its king, I have also shouldered the name of the Suou family as its heir. Naturally, the responsibility I bear is great, but I do swear that I will balance both roles successfully. I hope for your continued support. ♪
We Knights are proud knights, and Tsukasa-chan is the king who unifies us. ♪ Though he’s exceedingly well-mannered and sophisticated, he’s also a cute, wonderful boy. Well, he’s still got a lot to learn though. Because of him, we were able to work hard to become gallant knights. I can’t wait to see what kind of future Tsukasa-chan will guide us to as Knights’ leader. ♪

He can be relatively simple-minded, and sometimes quarrels with Tori about trivial topics, but he still has a positive personality. He holds a lot of respect for his unit seniors, such as Leo for his leadership; despite this, he can easily be frustrated with them due to his determination to achieve perfection in everything he performs. However, this also shows that he has a benevolent personality to tolerate imperfect people. In addition, he is very interested in civilian life, which means that he also has a good spirit of exploration, and he will not despise others for the sake of wealth.
Tsukasa is a very self-righteous person, and he takes on positions of leadership well; he has shown on several occasions he is able to effectively lead a group and give orders. Being raised in an honorable household, he is also very polite and has good manners towards everyone he meets. Tsukasa speaks somewhat formally; he is also bilingual, and being well-versed in both Japanese and English, he will speak certain words in English. He sometimes corrects himself to pronounce them in a more “Japanese way,” so that people who are not often around him can understand what he’s saying.
Despite being the youngest member of Knights, he despises being treated like a child by his seniors; he often gets teased by his unit mates, and he repeatedly asks them to stop. He loves sweet foods, and although this originally stemmed from stress eating, he still can’t seem to resist sweets. In trying to keep up a dignified image, he insists he only eats any of it because it’s good for focus.
Although he is a natural leader, Tsukasa bears a lot of self-doubt. He puts up a facade of confidence, but in reality he is constantly afraid he is making mistakes. Leo - the former leader of Knights - will often impart advice on Tsukasa in this aspect.

Voice Actor Comment
"When I received the role of Tsukasa Suou, I was very excited to find that he has a lot of similarities with me, such as his favorite color and his dislikes, etc. However, the script also says that he 'has very good posture'... I'm terribly stooped-shouldered, and thinking that this won't do, I started putting an effort into keeping a straight posture. I honestly respect Tsukasa-kun for always maintaining this posture.
Also, I think the biggest appeal about this character is certainly his gentlemanly quality. Essentially, he's a very gentle boy, but not only that, he's also very manly, and I also find it very charming that every now and then, he'd smoothly mix in English like a true elite.
Moreover, his natural gentlemanly manner tends to attract girls, but he's also quite oblivious, so he wouldn't always notice that. Then again, that little imperfection makes him even more charming. I hope you will enjoy the game while taking note of Tsukasa-kun." (Enstars!)
