Maka's mother is a renowned Scythe-Meister formerly in DWMA and is also the mother of Maka Albarn as well as the second partner of her former husband Spirit Albarn.[1] Though mentioned various times in the series, she makes no on screen appearances at all. Despite this, however, she is held in high regard by those in DWMA.


In the anime, Maka describes her mother's personality as like that of a hippo (in the English dub, a bear), as she is strong, stout, and uncontrollable when angered. Maka also describes her to having an "air of tranquility".[2]


Maka's mother is a Scythe-Meister who is very skilled, as she has created a Death Scythe. She has earned the admiration of her daughter and been acknowledged by another Scythe-Meister, Death.[3] She was also highly-resistance to Madness that Spirit describes that madness "just bounces right off her".[4] In the anime, it is also mentioned that she possesses the Anti-Demon Wavelength[5] and was able to utilize both the Witch-Hunt Slash & Devil-Hunt Slash.[5] However, despite her apparent skills, Spirit mentioned that her ability is not in Franken Stein's league in talent nor skill.[6]


Time in the Academy

Maka's mother became partnered with Spirit Albarn during her time in the academy. Prior to their partnership, she was the one who noticed Franken Stein performing experiments on Spirit and eventually put a stop to him. As a result of the event She then became his partner and was the one to make him a Death Scythe, in which she created the most powerful known Death Scythe.

Marriage and Divorce

Overtime, both her and Spirit fell in love. She became pregnant with their daughter, Maka, who was born when they were about eighteen.[7] However, due to his acension as a Death Scythe and womanizing ways, she eventually became fed up with their marriage. Years later, she divorced Spirit and also took custody of Maka. She then presumably left Death City.[8]


This section contains an instance from an anime not present in the manga and/or a deviation


  • The erroneous belief that Maka's mother is named Kami comes from a mistranslated Japanese etiquette. A wife that is no longer present, either due to divorce or death, is often referred to as "motokamisan" (roughly meaning "ex-wife") in lieu of their actual name.
