Best Friends:

Maya is a Southern mermaid from the same pod Lyla, Nixie, Sirena, and Aquata are from. Maya and Aquata are best and closest friends, since they are seen often traveling together. She was the one compelled to report that a boy had fallen into the moon pool under the girls' watch during the full moon, which had resulted in exiling them from their rightful home, and forcing the rest of the mermaids to move to the Pacific Ocean.

Mermaid Powers

Maya possesses the ability to swim at super speed of 600km/h, hold her breath for more than fifteen minutes, and dive at a depth lower than any ordinary human being. 


Maya has appeared only in one episode, therefore relatively little is known about her personality. Although, when she was in the discussion about the girls' banishment, she had a strict attitude. Judging by her personality she must try to follow in the steps of the mermaid council leader Veridia, strict but cares about her peers.


  • The name Maya has many different meanings in different languages. In Hebrew, it is short for "ma'ayan", meaning "spring" or "brook".
