Different villages and people react differently to the fact she is an Ushi-oni. Some scorn her and others believe her to be like a deity that would bring good fortune and prosperous times to them. With the uncertainty of their appraisal she generally does not reveal herself in her demon form but sticks to her human one.
Maiha is a well-cultured yokai, or so she believes herself to be. She avoids profanities and associating with those who use them. To the best of her abilities she tries to practice abstinence from human flesh due to her past, and uphold her values.
She does have a tendency to see things the way she wants it despite the truth. Sometimes she would twist her reality to fit her liking rather than face what is truly there. Maiha is also weakhearted and can easily become infatuated with other if there is enough time for an interaction, but she it is also easy for her to change her opinion on others. She easily pities others and their hardships.

Maiha’s early memories are blurred and the her history beyond the shrine she was raised in is questionable. The priestesses took her under their wing and taught her the Shinto practices whilst aware of her demon lineage. It was the kind maternal-like figures that guided her in her earlier years that created a basis to her humanity. They taught her alternatives to human flesh and the lessons of abstinence.
As she matured and began to travel further into Japan she fell in love with a medicine peddler. He was a wandering man from Hokkaido that was travelling southernly routes to sell his medicinal herbs. It was his voice that first allured teenage Maiha to his charm. Smitten, she followed him and professed her love to which he fondly accepted. Upon one night she shed her human guise and her lover did not take to it so pleasantly. He shunned her and tried to slay her. He had realised that she was an Ushi-oni and her tail was priceless to ward bad luck away. Missing her tail, he hacked off her weak right horn. Aghast and hurt, she fled away to the watery depths of the for safety, never to return to his side again.
Time ate away at her conscious for a time period and she lost her mind one night, massacring a village and feeding on their meat. When she finally came to, guilt overrode her and she swore to herself she would never eat human meat again. This also led her to developing a fear of travelling too far back into the human world. She pushed herself to endeavour back, but her attempts to quell her fear never disappeared.
