Maya is a Southern mermaid from the Mako Pod. Maya and Aquata are best and closest friends, since they are seen often traveling together. She was the one compelled to report that a boy had fallen into the moon pool under the Lyla, Sirena and Nixie's watch during the full moon, which had resulted in exiling them from their rightful home, and forcing the rest of the mermaids to move to the Pacific Ocean.
As a mermaid, Maya has the ability to swim at a super speed, and dive at depths no human being is capable of, completely protected from its cold and water pressure. She is also capable of holding her breath for at least fifteen minutes. Maya didn't displayed her powers, but like all mermaids born in the sea, she has all the regular and weather powers.
Maya has all the typical weaknesses of a Southern mermaid.
Maya has appeared only in one episode, therefore relatively little is known about her personality. Although, when she was in the discussion about the girls' banishment, she had a strict attitude. Judging by her personality she must try to follow in the steps of the mermaid council leader Veridia, strict but cares about her peers.
