He is quiet and talented in studying. Dhammi is immediately attracted with this behavior and both become friends, which eventually grows in to a special relationship.

Sugath, who has lost his parents when he was very small, has a brother, who studies at university. He talks about his relationship with Dhammi, with his brother, Sarath (Wijeratne Warakagoda) as well.

But, the day they have their final exam, Dhammi tells Sugath that she only loved Sugath as a brother and not to keep any further hopes about her.
