Maa is a narehate in Ilblu. Whether it has an actual name is unknown. Due to the fact that it can only say "Maaa" Riko took to calling it that. It doesn't seem to mind. Apparently none of the other narehate in Ilblu can understand what it's saying either.
Maaa resembles a sheet ghost, having a round-shaped body with fabric-like folds at the bottom, that it uses to walk. It has a split mouth like a cat, with a large tooth in the center, and is usually drooling. Its eyes are small and beady and often have tears coming out of them. Maaa is covered in pink fur and has two tentacle-like arms. There is a darker patch of fur over its left eye from when its body was torn apart during the balancing ceremony. Amusingly, Maaa has a very prominent posterior.
It has a very flexible body, which can grow and shrink in height. Its arms also extend when flexed, and are evidently quite strong. In the creases and flaps of its body it stores items in a sort of pouch. It is filthy, and smells of dried excrement.
Maa displays a very innocent and curious behavior, which can be seen in how they interact with Riko.
Whether Maaa was part of the original group becoming Ilblu' s first inhabitants is, as of yet, unknown.
Ilblu Arc Edit
While Majikajya was showing Riko, Reg, and Nanachi Ilblu's Marketplace, Maaa got a hold of Meinya, and accidentally crushed her. Meinya ended up being fine, but nonetheless, Maaa had damaged an item that did not belong to it. A sound rang out around the village, signalling the balancing ceremony. One of Maaa's possessions, a favorite doll, was taken and destroyed; Maaa was partially skinned alive, and one of its arms was torn off. Its arm and skin seemed to grow back, though its fur grew in a darker than originally.
Maaa has since stuck around Riko, following her around the village. It has taken a liking to Meinya, and obviously feels deep sorrow for hurting her. She is often seen on its head or in its arms. Later, Maaa saved Riko from some narehate who were trying to harm her. Riko then invited it to come along with her, and since then Maaa has accompanied her throughout the village, much to its delight.
