Why is Q followed by U?

Q’s pairing with U is a Latin invention that has its origin in Greek. The letter Koppa, which Q is based on, would appear before a rounded vowel where otherwise a sound like /k/ or /g/ would be used. But, a few other letters, like C, also designated the same sound but in different letter combinations.
