Maika can usually be found riding atop an Academy City Cleaning robot. Interestingly, despite the machine's constant spinning motion, she never seems to get dizzy. She is a good friend of Mikoto and Shirai Kuroko as she works as a maid at their school.
Even though Maika makes her official residence at her school's dormitory, she sometimes chooses to live at her brother's apartment; for instance, she once stayed at said residence because her dormitory's air conditioner had broken down.
At one point, Misaka Mikoto surmised that Maika may perhaps be into "Boy Love" stories, however, Maika almost instantly refutes this, stating with a big smile that her favorite books are the ones where the older brother falls in love with the younger sister. This further reinforces the case for her apparent love of Motoharu.
Despite the formal and polite nature of the vocation she has chosen to study (as an "imouto's promise" to her brother), Maika is gleefully unprofessional and casual, openly referring to people by their family names without using the polite-suffix of "sama" or "san" in the way a maid normally would. Point in fact, her boyish way of speaking without using any honorifics required by the catering profession would more than likely land her in hot water should she follow through to an actual career as a proper maid.
She is an expert cook and can easily discern the ingredients and cooking process of high class cuisine just by evaluating the dish for a short period of time, she is also self demanding when it comes to cooking, and can easily get fired up if she sees someone create high class cooking.[Examples?]
Maika has short, blue-black hair swept back by her bonnet that barely reaches her shoulders. She wears a maid attire because she's a student at Ryouran Maid School. She has a friendly relationship with Touma and Index. She can be seen constantly riding atop a cleaning bot.
Since the maid school has classes every day, she never wears anything but her mandatory maid outfit -- a fact that she has pointed out proudly.
Before her future stepbrother came to Japan, Maika was an orphan in a Japanese orphanage. Motoharu, then tasked with infiltrating Academy City and becoming an esper, adopted her as his stepsister to maintain his disguise because her circumstances made it easy to fake her official records. At first, the two lived in separate dorms, but as their relationship grew, her kind heart compelled him to protect her not only out of necessity but also out of a true desire to. It is unknown if she is aware of Motoharu's status as a magician or even the existence of magic.

Her only appearance is during the Tokiwadai Midsummer Festival berating Kuroko for not helping her, as well as complaining about Index's gluttonous appetite. She later hears Mikoto's violin solo at the end of episode.
Toaru Majutsu no IndexEdit
Throughout the series she is well known for performing what is commonly called "almost girlfriend services" to Motoharu. Services that include and are not restricted to cooking for him, massaging him, cleaning his room and taking care of his health. All of those are performed on regular basis whenever she can muster enough free time.

Maria becomes excited because this, misunderstanding her relationship with Touma, though calms down because her pride may swell up again.

Maika first appears during the Ichihanaransai with Kumokawa Maria. Once again, she tries to sell her maid sandwhiches to the crowd. Maria comments on how Maika has no unity in her uniform's design, to which Maika references her having no right to say that as she wears such a queer costume. Maria once again references her "pride", saying that having it hurt is a good thing, and that Maika will never strengthen. However, Maria states that it is better if she doesn't go down that route if she has no set rule, as it would give her an unrecoverable damage.
Maika then remembers that Maria should have a quota of maid sandwhiches to sell, to which Maria says that the label is everything, helping one sell the product. She reveals that she attached a sticker of her face with the message "middle school girl maid looking for a future master," which caused quite a commotion, and had her punished by a teacher, but she managed to finish her quota, irritating Maika.
As the festival goes on, Maika and Maria notices Silvia passing by. They immediately know that she is a Royal Maid that works for the British Royal Family, calling her a monster. As they wonder why she was in Academy City, she is has already left.

Bundled with Rainbow Spectrum Colors, Maika appears with her brother, chastising him of trying to open the mysterious letter for Kamijou Touma, much to his chagrin. The letter later disappears into the hands of Kazakiri Hyouka.
Character Art DesignsEdit
Due to the fact that Maika is a side character, Haimura had a little leeway in designing her character, giving her short hair, which befits her being a maid.
