Maggy (Magali in the original) is one of the main protagonists of the franchise of comics and cartoons Monica's Gang.
Magali is a gluttony girl who is always hungry and thinking about eating. Her gluttony is so absurd that she chases her friends for their snacks and is able to devour watermelons at one single bite.
The character made her debut in 1963, in strips of Monica and Jimmy Five as a secondary character, but as she ended up being a successful character, she soon became one of the protagonists, earning herself a comic book series since 1989.
Magali is a girl who since birth had a superhuman hunger. Her best friend is Monica, a girl that lives in the same street as her and that she has known and been friends with since they were babies. Magali has the reputation of eating much more than a normal human being which normally amazes her friends. Magali lives with her parents Dona Lili and Seu Paulinho, who often have financial problems because of her exaggerated hunger. She also has a pet cat named Vanilla, who is troublesome and arrogant besides oftenly being smarter than her.
When she is not at home, Magali often wanders and walks with her friends, especially with Monica, and in some occasions with Denise and Marina. Maggy often pursues his friends to eat their snacks, especially Jimmy Five who appears to be her main victim. She also lives nearby the little Junior, who is her younger cousin that unlike her hates eating. She is also the niece of Tia Nena, a very popular and friendly cook, that is frenquently tormented by her niece's hunger. Similar to Smudge, Maggy also has a boyfriend, Toddy, who is the son of a baker and often gives her bread as a way of flirting with her, and Maggy seems to like him just for this reason.
Despite her gluttony, Maggy is a friendly good girl. She, as many of her friends (Monica, Jimmy Five and Smugde), is always involved with adventures, and she even has a rival villain, the witch moon Viviane. She is often chased by Viviane who is obsessed with beauty and fortune, and despite Maggy giving no importance to those, she always manages to defeat the witch in the end with the help of her friends.
In this spin-off with manga style Maggy is a 15 year old and is still friends with Monica, Jimmy Five, Smudge and the other original characters from the classic series. Magali is studying in the same school that her friends from Limoeiro neighborhood are, and is still a voracious girl, although she learned how to control her hunger and, as usual, she never gets fat. She is still Toddy's girlfriend, but is also in love with the teacher of the school. Her pet cat Vanilla is now a father with several kittens at her house. Often during adventures with her friends, she acts as the most relaxed of the gang.
