She is Soul Eater Evans's Scythe Meister. As the daughter of the current Death Scythe and his former Meister, she has high expectations of herself. She idolizes her mother and as a result dislikes her disloyal father. Maka is bright, cheerful, direct and confident, in stark contrast to Soul, short-tempered, competitive and can sometimes let her emotions get the better of her and she sometimes forgets to take into consideration of other people's feelings, which sometimes results in conflict with her peers.
However, over time, she can admit to her mistakes and is not too proud to apologize. She is kind and caring to her friends, sometimes showing a gentler side to her usually assertive personality. Her willing to help is not limited to her friends, as she will stop to help out or encourage even strangers that she finds are having a hard time. She will not hesitate to do anything to help her friends, although she also will also not hesitate to put them in line if they do something inappropriate.
She is mostly known for her courage, and she is willing to throw herself at any enemy, no matter how strong they are, and her determination knows no bounds, and she faces an enemy no matter how strong they are.
