History[]

Maisie is a belligerent little girl, totally self-centered, greedy and vain and with a deep-rooted belief that the contents of every paper bag, particularly if it contains sweets, are hers by right. And those are her good points. Maisie will go to any lengths to get what she wants, and has been known to employ the fearsome Beryl Bogey (liberated girls' free-style all-in black-belt netball champion) as a henchperson to help 'persuade' her peers to elect her as May Queen. Sadly, the stiff-necked and ungrateful electorate have an irritating tendency to vote for rival schoolgirl Blossom McGinsberg instead.

Maisie is utterly besotted with Marlon, who returns her affections not at all, and has an antagonistic relationship with her little brother, Baby Grumpling, who likes to have fun with her fear of spiders by putting them in her knicker drawer, or in the bath.

Powers and abilities[]

Abilities

Some people have a voice that can charm the birds out of the trees. Maisie goes one better: she has a voice that can scare woodworm from a fence, moles from a lawn and bats from a belfry three miles away.

Strength level

Female human child who gets regular moderate exercise.

Weaknesses

Arachnophobia.

Paraphernalia[]

Transportation

Mostly walks, but has been known to travel via train (for holidays at the seaside resort of St Moribund's) or bus (for school trips).

Weapons

Her voters' pole (she'll hit people with it until they agree to vote for her).

Trivia[]

  • Maisie's mother is never depicted in the strip, but she occasionally speaks off-panel.
  • The British actress Maisie Williams (Arya Stark in Game of Thrones and Ashildr in Doctor Who) was born Margaret Williams but was nicknamed Maisie after the character from The Perishers.
