She lived on the planet of Mirinoi before becoming a Ranger. She passed through a portal along with the other Rangers and lived aboard the space station Terra Venture on its journey from Earth into deep space.
Proud to be the Yellow Galaxy Ranger, Maya believes that as a team the group can defeat her archenemy. Her wild spirit and closeness with nature gives her an ability to understand people and everything around her. This allows her to be able to communicate with the Lost Galaxy zords.
When morphed, Maya appears flat chested and her costume has no skirt because her Super Sentai counterpart was male.
