Mai

Mai is one of the main characters of Half Inch High, being the head of the micro student council.

General info

Mai is a strong advocate for tiny people' rights, and she is known in the whole school for loudly asking for respect in the corridors nearly every morning. Because of her activities and position in the micro student council, Bunny, Nana, Alice and many other students know her very well—though most of them generally stay uninvolved in all of her fights.

She often appears stoic, but she can get as afraid as anybody else should the situation become too scary; she carries the burden of having witnessed way many misfortunes without being able to have done much about them.

Role in the story so far

Despite her strong resolve, her spirit has been crushed hugely in her debut episode by Alice (The Micro Student Representative), though it seems that she is slowly getting back into action after that one incident. She was also later toyed with by Alice's bully friend Sekira, who pretended to step on her after killing some of her colleagues from the micro student council in order to discourage her from installing security cameras in the school (Just A Plaything).

One micro person she particularly respected, her senpai who was also the former representative of the micro students at Mai's school, was brutally squashed in front of her own eyes (Four Yeaes Ago). Because of this, she acquired the will to fight for the rights of those like her, and eventually reached the position of head of the micro student council.
