: Maya MadokaAge
: 4'11" Hair
: Dark brown, hidden behind a geeky pair of glassesSexuality
: Maya is a bit of a dreamer. Her teachers often complain of her daydreaming in class, though she somehow manages to do well in tests and exams. She is shy among her classmates, though that may be because of a language barrier. Having only come to America to study a year ago, Maya is highly conscious of her weird accent, although in fact, she tops her class in Japan when it comes to English. Most people ignore Maya because she is so quiet, but among the few friends she has, she is known to be a little on the superstitious and eccentric side. She loves reading about paranormal stuff and is interested in looking for aliens.History
: Maya was born and raised in Japan to an average salaryman father and a housewife mother. As the only child, Maya spent much of her childhood alone. She never felt lonely, however, as long as she had books to read. Maya had always been particularly fascinated by science fiction. In a bid to get their daughter to engage with outsiders a little more, Maya's parents signed her up for Aikido classes and viola lessons. While she enjoyed them, nothing brought her more joy than reading.
When Maya reached schooling age, her fantasies about aliens and time travellers were put aside. Studying came natural to her, and she topped her classes easily. She made friends easily and began to spend less time with her strange books. Upon entering Junior High school, however, Maya found herself thrust into an unfamiliar environment again. Most of her friends in her Elementary school had gone to other schools, leaving her in a school of unfamiliar people. She began to turn to her books, her old friends, once more. Maya also joined the library club, where she somehow managed to find some friends of common interests. Together with her friends, she learnt programming and some rudimentary hacking skills. They had wanted to hack into the military database to search for spottings of paranormal activity.
When Maya was 16, she was offered a place in a prestigious exchange program that would let her study in an American high school for two years. Knowing that this was her one chance to go overseas to search for the existence of aliens, Maya jumped at it. Her good grades helped her breeze through the interviews, and soon enough, she was in America. Being the doting and overly-protective parents they were, Maya's parents made her learn some survival skills like cooking and first aid before they allowed her to step onto the plane to America.Skills/Hobbies
: Analytical thinking skills, reading (especially about unnatural occurrences), computer programming and hacking, a bit of cooking (be prepared for weird ingredients if you rely on Maya's cooking), aikido.How he/she met Michael
: Technically, she hasn't met Michael yet. She isn't in any of his classes. But word spreads quickly, and if you're going to proclaim something like the end of the world, there's definitely going to be talk. Maya is keen on meeting Michael because she thinks he might have extrasensory perception.Additional Notes
