History: Mai Kuju was a fourteen year old Japanese school girl with a secret; she had inherited psychic powers, passed down through generations of her family, that allowed her to move things with her mind. Though traditionally her family had used the powers to protect their country, to Mai the powers were simply a source of least until the evil Wisdom Alliance took notice of her. The Alliance were an organisation who manipulated the world from behind the scenes, and they saw Mai as a potential resource, or a threat if not controlled. Targetted by this malevolent agency, Mai and her father were forced to go on the run.
