The last of the Pleiades Series built by an Earth native known as Stein, Maia is technically classified as an “Android Triage Bot.” While not Masters in the traditional sense, she and her sisters were specifically built to be powerful enough to stand with them in combat. The Pleiades Series of androids are programmed to protect Masters at all costs, and are unable to act without direct orders. As they are given only basic AI and personality function, Maia often fails to emulate human emotion, motivation, or colloquial conversation.
While she is more like a human being than her sisters, Maia has trouble connecting with or understanding the human condition. She knows that she must not allow harm to come to the Masters, but the grander scheme of her purpose is unknown to her. Due to this, and her hightened sympathetic response centers, she has given herself purpose. She recognizes herself as a mothering figure to humanity, and has called herself the Mother of the Flawed. While she sees both perspectives of Synd and human, she believes that machines are more tool than being.
