This hero was proposed but was rejected by the community for not being admirable enough or lacks what is necessary to be a purely good hero. Therefore, this hero shall be added to our "Never Again List", where proposed heroes rejected by the community shall be placed to prevent future proposals of the same do-gooder. They can be proposed again (with the permission of an administrator) if new elements appear in their series that can change their status as non-PG heroes.

Any act of adding this hero to the Pure Good category without a proposal or creating a proposal for this hero without the permission of an administrator will result in a ban.

Close your eyes. Feel it. The light… it’s always been there. It will guide you.
~ Maz Kanata
Through the ages… I've seen evil take many forms. The Sith. The Empire. Today, it is the First Order. Their shadow is spreading across the galaxy. We must face them. Fight them. All of us.

History

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens

She is a wise, small elderly space pirate who runs a cantina in a castle with a firm and even hand. Her origins are a mystery, but she serves a part in helping the protagonist, Rey, and her friends on their journey.

Maz is first introduced when Rey, Finn, Han Solo, and Chewbacca go to her castle to find a way to bring the droid BB-8 to safety from the wicked First Order. Maz, concerned for their safety, tells them to go home but she reluctantly aids them. She sees in Finn's eyes that he is trying to hide from his origins as a stormtrooper.

When Rey discovers Luke Skywalker's long-lost lightsaber, Maz sees that Rey has discovered the shocking truth about her past and the fact that the family who abandoned her are never coming back. She reveals to Rey that she has been keeping the lightsaber safe for thirty years since the Rebellion's triumph over the Empire and gives it to her. Rey refuses but discovers the power she has with it in the end, but Finn gets the lightsaber before leaving the planet.

As for Maz, she helps our heroes escape and manages to escape herself alive.
