|Chronological and political information|
Maia is the daughter of Jim and Piaolian and is a master earthbender. She first met Qi in the Si Wong Desert and has been travelling the Earth Kingdom with her ever since.
Maia was born and raised in Ba Sing Se alongside her twin brother: Liu. She discovered earthbending at an early age and began training, eventually mastering it before the age of seventeen.
Maia and her family were flying over the Si Wong Desert when they noticed a crashed airship and several people screaming for help. Maia and her brother descended from the airship and found Qi and Huo. Huo had no memory of who he was at the time. They introduced themselves as Maia and Liu and explained how they were siblings. Qi introduced herself and Huo and explained how they wanted to go to Ba Sing Se to restore Huo's memory. When Qi saw a sand dune moving, she nervously asked what was going on. Maia explained how it was a sandshark that might eat everyone up. The siblings invited everyone on board so that they could head to Ba Sing Se together.
In the City of Ba Sing Se
While they were travelling to Ba Sing Se, Qi struck up a conversation with Maia and Liu. She told them how they were looking for the Avatar and they were hoping that the Avatar might be in Ba Sing Se. Maia then delightedly said how she and her brother were from Ba Sing Se and they were returning home from a holiday to the Northern Water Tribe. When Qi asked what Ba Sing Se was like, Liu said it wasn't good. He explained how there had been a civil war, so former Earth King Wu's grandson had taken the throne. He said how the current Earth King was even worse than Hou-Ting, which shocked Qi. They were soon approached by Jim and Piaolian who explained that they were arriving in Ba Sing Se.
When they were flying over Ba Sing Se, Maia noticed Qi staring in awe at the mega city and saying that it was "amazing." When they landed, Maia and Liu took them to a famous hospital in the Middle Ring that was only ten years old. Inside, the receptionist told them to go to the sixth floor, but when they all went, the receptionist said only Huo could go.
When Huo didn't come back down, Qi began to worry. Maia tried to comfort Qi but Liu succeeded in making her even more worried. Eventually, a doctor came to them and said there was an attack on the sixth floor. Qi nervously asked the doctor about Huo, who said that he was missing. Qi immediately used her spiritual projection to locate Huo, who was kidnapped and taken to an old abandoned house. When Qi awoke, she told the siblings of Huo's location.
The three took a train to the Lower Ring, where they got off. Qi took the siblings down a dark alley that soon led to the house where Huo was being kept. Qi noticed that Aimei was standing guard but she soon came up with an idea to distract the princess. Qi awoke soon and cheekily said how Aimei was gone. Now Aimei was gone, Qi managed to lead Maia and Liu into the house, where they began to fight Cici, Wang and Sha. In her fight with Sha, Maia threw various earthbending moves at him, but they were all blocked with a wall made of rock. Maia threw a pillar of earth at the wall, crumbling it before continuing her attacks. Maia advanced on Sha and trapped him against the wall with a slab a rock.
When Cici and Wang were defeated by the others, Qi ran over to Huo and freed him. Just as they were about to leave, Aimei returned. Angered, Aimei summoned up four augmented fire rings and ten simultaneous fire whips, making it nearly impossible to defeat her. Knowing when to flee, Qi smacked Aimei in the face with air, temporarily stunning her before blasting Maia and her friends to safety with air propulsion.
The four soon came to a stop when they fell next to a pond. When they recovered, everyone thanked Qi for getting them out alive. Qi just said how she was happy to help. When Maia was confused about what to do next, Qi said how they were going to visit the Earth King and ask him about the Avatar.
Several days later, Maia and her friends had managed to arrange a meeting with Earth King Shoo's adviser: Xu. They arrived at Xu's house and he took them to the living room where they struck up a conversation. Xu explained how the Avatar was not in Ba Sing Se, much to everyone's disappointment. Nevertheless, Qi wanted to meet with Shoo and get him to send troops to help look for the Avatar. Xu agreed, but said that due to Shoo's tight schedule, the meeting would have to take place in two weeks.
Two weeks later, Xu took the four to the royal palace, which amazed Maia and her friends. When they arrived in the throne room, Shoo asked Maia to explain the plan. Maia said how Qi wanted troops sent around the Earth Kingdom to hurry the search for the Avatar, which Shoo reluctantly agreed to. After the four friends were alone on the streets of Ba Sing Se, Qi and Huo invited Maia and Liu to join them in the search, which they delightedly obliged.
The next day, Qi asked Shoo to take the Avatar to Republic City if he found the Avatar sooner, much to Shoo's surprise. Shoo was unwilling to do this and didn't like Qi's attitude. He therefore decided to fight Qi's group. Before the fight could descend into chaos, Maia and her friends fled onto the airship and took flight.
Maia fell dangerously ill and therefore couldn't visit the Village of Hope with her brother and Qi.
The State of Yi
After Maia got better, she visited Yi with her friends. They were greeted by the new governor. The governor gave them a tour of Yi, where they discovered it had modernised in many different ways. After the tour, the governor took Maia and her friends into his office, where he told Maia the Avatar wasn't in Yi. However, their meeting was interrupted by a clerk, who told them that Aimei had landed in Yi.
Outside, Qi told the governor to make sure everyone was safe inside their homes, leaving Maia and her friends to fight Aimei's group. This time, Maia fought Cici. Maia sent a frenzy of flying rocks at Cici, who protected herself by crumbling all the rocks to ashes with water. Eventually, Maia defeated Cici by trapping her in a tiny box of earth.
Seeing her brother unconscious, she rushed over to the body and carried him onto the airship, where she left her brother to rest and recover.
