Despite belonging to a prestigious family, Maki was rejected by the Zenin clan due to her incompetence as a sorcerer on not possessing cursed energy. This acted as her motivation as he trained herself to the point of being a master in close-range combat using cursed weapons.
In this aspect, she was similar to her uncle, Toji Fushiguro and her father also saw a reflection of him in her during his final moments. Although acting as a supporting member in most battles due to her lack of cursed energy, she showed her real power when she cut off Ogi Zenin’s head with a single slice.
