Itokazu, Maki

Maki Itokazu (糸嘉州 マキ Itokazu Maki) is Kio's teacher and leader of Beautiful Contact Japan Sect. Due to the fact Eris doesn't represent the stereotypical alien (tentacles, green skin, etc), she firmly believes that Eris, despite the obvious, is not really an alien. Even after the public meeting between the Earth and the Catians, Maki still holds to her beliefs that aliens are supposed to look like those found in movies, manga and other sci-fi media.
