An athletic, beautiful and intelligent student, Maho was the star of her middle school. But she falls out of the limelight when she arrives at Hokuei High School because of Yukino. Maho becomes jealous of Yukino, which mirrors Yukino's jealousy of Soichiro. Her jealousy becomes hatred and she turns the entire class against Yukino. However, it eventually backfires on her and the class turns on Maho. Yukino takes the high road and makes the first efforts to turn Maho into a friend. Maho soon becomes part of Yukino's circle of friends, and although she maintains her aloof attitude (staying a little out of the ring and being refered to as Maho-san, while every other girl is simply called by her first name), she also eventually learns to cherish the friendships.
