Maia is one of the 13 fairies that I made up once upon a time (ha ha, no pun intended...ish) when I was a composing a (as of yet and probably perpetually) unfinished story about Sleeping Beauty. There's one for every month, plus one extra. They have all sorts of alliances and suchlike and are at war, and elemental, and all have weird names that are vaguely associated with their month names, function, or holidays therein. Maia is the fairy of May. She's pretty neutral as far as faerie alliances go, following in Mellie's (November) wake a little. Her name is drawn from Maia, a Greek goddess who put the stars in the sky, which gives her a kind of dreamy far off quality that wildly contrasts with the themes of Beltaine, the major holiday in her month.
