Maya The Bee (simply known as Maya) is the main protagonist of Maya the Bee. She is a young 7 year old (later 10 years old) bee with blond hair, yellow and black stripes, and green eyes. Her best friend is Willy, and she is also a bit of a rival of Lara.
She loves freedom, living in the meadow by herself unlike other bees who live in the hive. She is good, fair, happy, and willing to help everybody. She was born in a beehive. At the beginning of the third season Beeswax wanted Maya ejected from the hive, because he was worried that other bees would copy her behavior. The Queen of the hive dissuaded him after Maya saved her teacher Cassandra. Maya is very rambunctious, and this often causes problems. For example, Maya got lost in underground corridors. Her appearance, in contrast to other anime characters, varies. In the first season her head is rounded, but in the second season it is oval. In the third season she is very slim, her head is rounded and she has longer antennae. Although Maya is a bee, she has wasp colors (yellow-black). Maya is the most popular and most influential person on the meadow. Her best friend is Willy and she does not like the spider Thekla. She dislikes predators (including frogs, birds, and bats) and her arch-enemies of Stinger, Deez and Doz, and also Thekla.
Maya is a cute and tomboyish young bee girl who is 7-years-old and who loves freedom but unlike all the other bees, live in the meadow and not in the hive-like everyone else. She's helped out any one of her friends.
