MAIA is a protagonist who appears in Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric. She is a robot designed by Lyric. She was one of the many MAIA units operating Lyric's Weapon Facility, but rebelled against Lyric and helped ensure Lyric's downfall about 1,000 years ago with the aid of Sonic and Tails

Appearance

Maia1

MAIA 1,000 years ago.

MAIA is a spherical dark grey robot with a rounded, yet long and thin white plating which covers the middle of her front body and stretches far behind it, akin to a fin. This plate has Ancient runes on it and one large, completely blue eye in the middle, along with a smaller lamp above and below it. She also has an oblong white and dark grey handle hovering on each side of her body, along with two round-shaped black and blue lamps on the bottom of her body and a ball on her rear. She also has a retractable antenna on one side.

After 1,000 years, MAIA has only slightly changed in appearance. In addition to her eye being dirty and seemingly fractured, her body is covered in rust and green moss.

History

Games

Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric

One thousand years ago, MAIA was one of the MAIA units running Lyric's Weapon Facility, where she helped Lyric the Last Ancient create an army of robots to destroy all organic life on earth. However, MAIA somehow went rogue and plotted against her creator. She eventually met Sonic and Tails who had been sent from the future by MAIA's future self to get Lyric's map to the Chaos Crystals. Understanding this, MAIA asked the duo to clear the path to a Sentinel―the only weapon powerful enough to stop Lyric―and she would get them to the map room. With the duo fulfilling their end of the deal, MAIA interfaced with the Sentinel and lead Sonic and Tails to the map room, while she trashed Lyric's facility and helped the Ancients imprison Lyric.

One thousand years later, MAIA met Knuckles and Amy while searching for Sonic at the Abandoned Research Facility since Lyric had returned. After Knuckles revealed where Sonic was, MAIA found him and Tails as they looked for a Crystal. MAIA them instructed them to help her activate a time machine which they could use to find the map to the Crystals in the past (thereby leading to MAIA's first meeting with Sonic and Tails). As MAIA was opening a time portal though Shadow attacked Sonic and Tails, their fight taking them several time portals as MAIA tried calibrating them. Once Shadow was disposed of into a portal leading to the near future, MAIA took Sonic and Tails to their intended point in time through another portal, and presumably helped them get back.

Personality

MAIA is an artificial intelligence, making her capable making her own decision. While she maintains a very robotic and computer-based speech pattern and follows protocols accordingly, she is remarkably life-like. Not only is she is capable of expressing both gratitude and closeness, but she can also give into peer pressure and even say rather strong emotional quotes. Though she sometimes require times to process input, she has show noteworthy understanding of rather complex explanations.

MAIA appears to have a defined sense of justice for a Lyric robot, given how she went rogue on her own and openly rebelled against her creator in order to protect organic life forms.
