Maki is largely based around the tsundere character archetype - she is very hostile towards most male characters, the player character in particular. Maki is brash and dismissive of almost any action the player takes and looks down on him for them, but is also openly nervous about his opinion of her.
Despite her usual attitude, and unlike most of her female Obelisk Blue colleagues, she is a fan of Zane Truesdale, as seen during an optional event in Tag Force 2 and Academy Zane's third story event in Tag Force 3.
Tag Force 1
Maki partners with Rie for the Tag Force tournament.
