Marala "Maya" Iniya Prasad is the younger twin sister of Sora, the secondary deuteragonist of the Kingdom Hearts series, the main protagonist of Luna Tempest, and the 9th Disney Adventurer. She is a normal fashion prodigy attending Midtown High School as a junior (at the age of 14, much to some people's dismay and surprise). Her life was normal until she got struck by lightning and received electrokinesis.
She is the 20th Junior Disney Princess.
Official Disney Bio
- "Maya is a sweet teenage fashion prodigy from New York City who's not afraid to stand up for others, but sometimes she can be a little... rude and sassy... Her life is like any city girl... until one fateful day involves her getting struck by lightning and developing electrokinesis, which leads her to become the fabulous heroine, Luna Tempest. This mysterious power earns her a few new friends, like Spider-Man and White Tiger, a request to join S.H.I.E.L.D. by Nick Fury and many new enemies (we would say that one of them is obviously J. Jonah Jameson... but he's a fan despite being a superhero hater)..."
Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors
- "Since her shocking (pun intended) transformation into a super-powered heroine has impacted and changed her life forever, Maya Prasad is willing to team up with her childhood best friend, Peter, and protect New York City from crime."
Wreck-it Ralph 2
Maya: Swagalicous Superheroine
- "The fantabudelic teenage fashion designing founder of S.T.O.R.M. is a brave and swag gal programmed from Luna Tempest: Rise of S.T.O.R.M. She may be innocent and adorable, but behind that pretty face is a mind of mystery and the ability to rap. If you make her mad, watch out for her pet eel, Sparky! He'll shock you with his temper!!"
Maya is kind and has a great sense of humor like her nobody, Miriam. She is immature and very flirty most of the time. As an adult, she matures and is very motherly, but still has her sense of humor. Maya is also shown to be disrespectful and violent, which is seen in Luna Tempest when she throws an apple at Xavier, insults his mother, and kicks him in the groin. Though shy, cowardly, goofy, and cheerful, Maya also has a tough side, which is shown in Wreck-it Ralph 2 when she tells Darien to "get his [lazy] tushie back in line" and punches him in the face. She also shares multiple traits with her birth siblings. Like Sora, Maya is childish, kind, awkward, free-spirited, fearless, and optimistic.
Although she refuses to admit it, Maya is also a talented singer, in Wreck-it Ralph 2, she sings a parody of For the First Time in Ever from the film Frozen.
Maya is a beautiful teenage girl with a heart shaped face, light tanned skin with spiky brunette hair that reaches down to her shoulders, baby blue eyes, and pink lips. Her preferred outfit is a long turquoise shirt with a sun design, lime pants, and rainbow shoes, which have been worn in many promotional posters and merchandise for Luna Tempest and Wreck-it Ralph 2.
In her Sugar Rush form, her height shrunk down to 3'5" and her hair length grew down to her ankles and is tied into a pony tail and, oddly, her eye color is a light shade of emerald. She wears a one sleeved white t-shirt, blue denim shorts, and golden boots that reach her knees.
Her Halloween costume consists of a baby blue off-the-shoulder dress with a golden collar and matching ruffled cuffs and a pair of light blue ballet flats with white jewels
During her vacation to Greece, she wore a sky blue t-shirt, matching fingerless gloves, white shorts, and ankle-length blue boots. She also wore a handmade red belt (resembling a ribbon) with the symbol of the gods attached to it.
In Chiaro Academy, she is taller than her older brother, wears a t-shirt similar to the shirt Sora wore as a young boy, (but green instead of white), gray shorts, and long dark blue boots.
In Mickey Mouse, she wears a green t-shirt with a yellow star in the bottom left, a pink skirt with a blue lighting bolt on the top left, lavender stockings, and a pair of red high heels. Her hair has been cut to resemble Sora's and a golden tiara with a pink jewel attached to it sits on top.
As her other alter-ego, Lucy Martin, she wears a knee-length purple dress with short sleeves, white stockings, and pink flip flops.
In her Kingdom Keepers debut, her hair is once again cut and her lips are described as "redder than Snow White's". Her peddler disguise consists of a black cloak, a white blouse, a black corset, a dark purple skirt, and a pair of knee-length maroon leather boots.
Since she was 3, Maya was trained in martial arts and gymnastics.
