In chapter 1, Gene notes that Finny always traveled in groups, particularly large ones. This likely implies his popularity, especially coming from Gene's persepective.

In the end of chapter 1, Finny also refuses to wear the school issued pajamas. They weren't military enough. This shows Finny had an affinity for the war and wanted to model or mirror the life of a soldier.

Finny has a ritual about saying prayers at night too.

Another common phenomenon for Finny that takes place throughout the first several chapters is the idea of breaking schools rules and then talking his way out of trouble or possible punishment. He does this in chapter 1 by skipping dinner (an dragging Gene with him), and he does this by wearing a pink shirt to the headmaster's tea in chapter 2.

By chapter 3, Finny creates lots of rules for Blitzball. As Gene notes all of the rules seem to be intended to make Finny look the best.
