Early History

Throughout Legacies Series

Season Two

In This Year Will Be Different, Maya walks in the bathroom and finds Hope crying. She asks if she's having boy problems and Hope responds with yes, saying that he's being kind of a "troll". She offers to fix her up, to make him feel jealous, and introduces herself as Maya. Hope responds in kind and thanks her for her generosity. Hope also asks her if she's noticed a terrible smell coming from somewhere inside the school. Maya believes that everyone has.

Later, Maya stumbles across Hope and Alaric and the creature Hope has seemingly killed; she's shocked at the non-human creature, though curious as to what it is. To keep the supernatural world hidden, Alaric has her compelled by MG to forget she ever saw anything and heads back to class.

In You Remind Me of Someone I Used to Know, Maya arrives at school with her brother, Ethan and their mom, the sheriff, who immediately mistakes Hope Mikaelson for vandalizing the school's exterior. Maya defends Hope, telling her mother that she's a Timberwolf, not a Stallion.

As the day progresses, Maya participates in the annual charity football game between the two schools. After Hope seemingly twists her ankle, she encourages Ethan to step in as quarterback. Ethan does and he helps the team score but watches in horror as Ethan's arm is injured mid-pass. Ethan is transported off the field and taken to Mystic Falls Hospital. That night, as she leaves the hospital, she runs into Hope, who came to check on them both. Maya tells Hope that Ethan worked so hard for that scholarship and now it's over, implying the gravity of his injuries.

In Since When Do You Speak Japanese?, she is seen performing as a cheerleader during a pep rally at the high school.


She is described as "a sharp-tongued and flirtatious new student at Mystic Falls High", the sister of Ethan and the daughter of Sheriff Mac.[1]
