Heir to a prominent family of spiritualists, Maya is Phoenix's
obligatory perky sidekick during all three games.
Personality: Maya is optimistic, excitable, friendly, curious, and
a fangirl for all things Steel Samurai. Like her sister she is tenacious
to a fault, and very attached to "Nick" (her and her sister's name for
Phoenix). Not always the brightest but loyal and outgoing.
Misc Facts: Maya originally was going to be working in Mia's
office, training to become a lawyer. But the producers thought Phoenix had
too many allies, so they asked one to be cut. That was how the writers
came up with the idea for the Turnabout Sister's case, and using spirit
channeling to combine two of Phoenix's allies into one.
Friends and Family: Maya has an older sister, Mia. Her mother has
been missing for 15 years, but she has an aunt, Morgan, and a cousin,
Pearl. Her mother is Misty Fey.
English: "Fey" was probably chosen as a last name because of it's
connection to magic/spiritualism (as in, Morgan le Fay). Maya is pretty
close to her Japanese name, Mayoi.
Japanese: The creator picked Mayoi from a list of kanji he liked.
Together they mean, “True Evening,” a “mysterious name that fits perfectly
with the opening setting of Reversal Sisters.”
Background: Maya grew up in Kurain, training to be a spiritual
medium. After the disappearance of her mother when she was two, and later
because her sister left the village, she is destined to become the heir of
her family. Though her sister left home they still remain in contact and
are very close.
Maya's spiritual powers are still somewhat underdeveloped, and she has
trouble calling spirits sometimes.
