Appearances: Soul Eater and Soul Eater NOT!
Bookworm Maka Albarn, one of the main protagonists of Soul Eater, is a scythe-meister at Death Weapon Meister Academy and also the partner of the demon weapon, Soul “Eater” Evans. Inspired by her mother and desiring to create a death scythe that surpasses the prowess of the main weapon partner of Death himself and father, Spirit Albarn, due to the event of him cheating on her mother, she joins the DWMA and is promptly partnered up with Soul Evans, who instead goes by the stage name “Soul Eater”.
Throughout the series, she and Soul work together as a team to make the demon weapon a death scythe capable of surpassing her father. Along the way, Maka forges strong relationships with not only her partner but others too(notably Crona), fends off the forces of evil in it’s various forms, and more or less starts the reparation of her relationships between herself and her father.
Maka is notably one of the top students within the DWMA. Trained at the academy, she is one of the students in the E.A.T (Especially Advantaged Talent) Class, a curriculum consisting of a little bit over 100 students and represents 10% of the overall school’s student population in which dedicated itself to fighting evil. In addition to this, she is one of, if not, the most intelligent of her peers in the academy.
As a Meister, she mainly employs the usage of a scythe weapon (Soul Eater) though is also skilled in the usage of assassin-related weaponry like a chain scythe. With a scythe at hand, her skill enables her to take on the likes of the assassin Black Star (one of the three top students of the academy), Crona, and Arachne (A powerful witch remarked by Death himself to be dangerous). She’s also an able hand-to-hand combatant. She also has ultra-sensitive Soul Perception (ability to perceive souls) capabilities, having developed them enough to see the souls of everyone around the world with the usage of Soul’s weapon form and read the emotional state of others.
Perhaps her two most acclaimed skills of her own are her Anti-Demon Wavelength and and Grigori soul. Her Anti-Demon Wavelength allows her to utilize powerful techniques with Soul that acts as a bane for the forces of magic and evil. Her Grigori soul, a extremely rare soul type, allows her and Soul to fly in his weapon form provided that they maintain a stable soul resonance.
Maka is of Japanese descent.
Maka was born the same day that Black Star was taken in.
According to Ohkubo himself, he created Maka Albarn and paired her up with Soul to demonstrate an equal representation of gender as well as doing so in response to typical
