MAHO claims to be a pacifist and dislikes conflict.

She felt pressure from her parents growing up to be a perfect child and she never wanted her family or teachers to think poorly of her. In elementary school she took piano, volleyball, swimming and calligraphy lessons so she wouldn't have to worry about those subjects later and so she wouldn't bother the school.
