Mui Aiba (相羽 六 Aiba Mui) is the female protagonist of the anime series Mahou Sensou. She is the younger sister of Tsuganashi Aiba and a magician who accidentally turns Takeshi Nanase into a magician too.
Mui has thigh-length shiny black hair that has a pink triangle hairclip on the left side with bangs hanging on the right side, deep pink eyes, she is decently well endowed, at least in proportion to her small stature where she is slightly short for her age, being noticeably shorter than almost all other female characters.
She is usually seen wearing the uniform of Subaru Magic Academy which is that of a white shirt with blue accents along the cuffs a well as the collar and a brown miniskirt. A green plaid tie, brown loafers, and black socks going up to the middle of the thigh.
Mui is generally a shy, cute and a sweet girl, which at times leaves her very defenseless. But she's also on a few occasions, mostly when trying to return Tsuganashi Aiba to normal, has shown to be incredibly stubborn, to the point of nearly getting herself killed. She can also be tricked or become frustrated easily, such as her brother tricking her into basically saying out loud that she likes Takeshi Nanase.
Mui was born the second child, and first daughter, of the Aiba family, and like her parents and Tsuganashi Aiba born a magician, making her a pureblooded wizard. She and her brother were always close growing up, like practicing magic together, along with Mui giving her brother a white glove that became his Aspect. At some point, in an unknown order, one or both of her parents died, she got a gun she named Arthur as her Aspect, and she joined Wizard Brace and earned an S rank in her abilities. In more recent times her brother was captured and brainwashed, and in pursuit of him she met Takeshi Nanase, and beginning the series of events that is the series.
