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".
Strong Will: He will is so strong that she possess a high resistance to Madness. Spirit mentions that madness "just bounces right off her".
Despite her apparent skills, Spirit mentioned that her ability is not in Franken Stein's league in talent nor skill.
During her tenure as a student in the academy, she was the one to have noticed Franken Stein's experimentation on Spirit Albarn in her sleep. After alerting Spirit and putting to a stop to it eventually, she later became his Meister.
Marriage with Spirit
Overtime, both her and Spirit fell in love. She eventually became pregnant with their daughter, Maka. Eventually, she would give birth to Maka when her husband was eighteen. 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.
This section contains an instance from an anime not present in the manga and/or a deviation
In the anime, Maka reveals to Blair that wherever her mother travels she keeps in contact with Maka through postcards. Maka lays out a number of these postcards on their living room table to show Blair the most recent one that she received in the mail, after Arachnophobia's Madness Relay base devices puts the entire world under madness. When DWMA students are assigned on missions to destroy these Madness Relays, Maka takes with her the most recent postcard received from her mother, which includes a word in Persian that she cannot read. Upon reuniting with Stein to kill Medusa, the scientist explains that the Persian translates as "Courage". Upon leaving Medusa's lair to reunite with her peers to fight Asura himself, Maka keeps the postcard and focuses on its message of courage to inspire her to defeat Asura, the embodiment of fear, with courage itself. After defeating the Kishin, Maka returns to Death City and puts her mother's Courage postcard into a frame upon her desk.
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.
