Maki is a 16 year old former Martial Arts Rhythmic Gymnastics champion who leads a dual life - regular high-schooler by day, street fighter by night.
History[edit | edit source]
Formerly a Martial Arts Rhythmic Gymnastics champion, Maki earned her nickname of "Airmaster," due to excelling in aerial combat, but after Maki's mother (also her master) died, Maki was left alone and confused. That's when she took up street fighting out of frustration or just in a need to use her amazingly fit and strong body.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Maki's personality is very laid-back. When she makes friends (after some classmates of hers witnessed one of her fights and took her in), she is pretty much a follower in the group, shy and reserved, often sleeping anywhere she sits down, but if she's needed to fight or protect her friends, she will spring into action.
She is addicted to fighting, as the rush and pressure of combat is the only thing that makes her feel alive after her mother passed away. This eventually leads her to join the Fukamichi Rankings, a league consisting of the strongest street fighters and martial artists. Maki, seeking the buzz she gets from fighting tough opponents, scales the Rankings and clashes with the world's greatest warriors.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Seeming to have a mind dedicated completely to competing, she blends her knowledge of Martial Arts Rhythmic Gymnastics with Taido Martial Arts. Continuing her legend as the Airmaster on the streets, her unique fighting style involves extreme acrobatics, high-altitude jumping attacks, control and sense of the air flow. Maki is even capable of sensing attacks simply by feeling out the air flow. She is quite a versatile fighter, capable of learning techniques on the fly, using elements of other combat styles like wrestling, and adapting to cramped environments where she is unable to 'spread her wings'. Maki is a fight addict and fighting is the only thing that makes her feel alive. Sometimes her cravings for a good fight get so bad she enters a bloodlusted state where she can attack friends or even strike to kill people if not stopped.
