Maya is a young girl with a pale face and curly ginger hair. She has bright blue eyes and a lizard tattoo on her forearm. She also has a burn scar on her cheek from a Conqueror battle in Arctica, an injury possibly caused by her own inferno.
Maya first appeared in Fire and Ice. She appears to have an easygoing, happy personality, though she can be timid and is not much of a fighter. She is a Greencloak, and has been for only a little longer than Conor, Abeke, Rollan, and Meilin, as she is only a little older.
She appears to have a very close bond with Tini. She often baby-talks to him, referring to him with names such as 'sticky-footed little genius.'
She is scared after the fight with Suka. When the team battles the Conquerors, she sets almost the whole area by the docks on fire, killing many of the non-Greencloaks. Her power appears to have been enhanced by her fear, as one of her first seen fire attacks did not harm the common polar bear.
