Julian is one of the supporting characters of Candy Series and the older brother of Joni. He made an early bird cameo in Hamlet's Keeper: Responsibility and his official debut in Top of the Class: Academics.
When Julian was still little, he made a decision to be a lawyer when he became older because when he was 11 years old, Irwin somehow suprised him with a frog during a camping trip hence making him suprised and shocked and ending up him crying and told his teacher what Irwin did to him. But since it was a small incident and it was not done on purpose, the teacher dismissed it.
This made Julian felt unfair so he decided to be a lawyer when he grows up to judge people fairly.
Julian is a relatively tall person in the model of a fine young man. He has messy pink hair (which he inherited from his mother) and blue irises. His eyebrows are usually portrayed as red on the book covers, but sometimes pink or black in the comic. Julian was often seen wearing normal street clothes and hoodies.
Julian is also described to be rather attractive, as Joni's classmates were all surprised that Joni's older brother is a handsome young man.
Julian appeared as a matured, serious and calm individual. He has a habit of teasing and pranking his little sister, Joni and occasionally attempts to pester her whenever he sees flaws or possible impacts in her actions.
Julian is also assumed to be a rather aloof and distant person, and occasionally tends to stay at home or go out on his own. A running gag in the series is that Joni often teases him for not having many friends and him not having a girlfriend supports this assumption.
There are times when Julian displays his social awkwardness, he was often seen having trouble communicating to some people around him. Which is a possible reason why he does not have many friends; often seen alone.
Despite his maturity and seriousness, there are still some occasions (used as a form of comic relief) where he reverts to childish and prideful behavior. One noticeable time is in Starstruck!: Fandom, when he was shown to be quite prideful for his looks, as he boasted to Sean about it- supported by the fact that Joni's classmates (especially Jane) were all awed by his fine appearance. Another time is when he ordered numerous dishes when Irwin invited him for dinner and him knowing that the latter is the one who is paying.
Not much interaction were seen between Julian and his father. But it is clear that Mr. Liu greatly loves his son.
Julian and Irwin had known each other since elementary school.
Julian met Sean since secondary school and were good friends since then.
Julian met with Charles when Charles decided to skip school for a day and went to buy some junk food in the shop that Julian works in but got caught by Charles' class teacher, Mr. Mako. Later, Julian helps Charles to turn over a new leaf by teaching him in his studies. While helping Charles, Julian keeps on teasing Charles which makes him annoyed and angry.
There does not seem to have much conversation between him and Joni's classmate/rival. Oblivious to the girl's feelings and interest for him, he even forgotten Jane's existence when she tried to talk to him when Julian came to Joni's class during the class' remedial lesson in Starstruck!: Fandom.
Julian was later shown to hold a disliking towards her, as he got furious for her trying to physically hurt his little sister by throwing inanimate objects at her. But soon got over it when Joni forgives Jane and told him to comfort her.
Because of Mikael's seemingly intimate relationship with his little sister, Julian does not approve of Joni to be friends with Mikael. It was hate at first sight for Julian when he saw Mikael video chat with Joni. Immediately banning Mikael from getting close to his little sister.
Julian's stoic and cold demeanor towards Mikael soon ceased in Dreams Take Flight: Ambition, as Julian agrees on Mikael's volunteer to help find Joni's ambition (even though Julian played Mikael out to escape from Joni's horrible cooking that he was forced to taste.)
