Maou (麻黄?) is a minor character in the Toaru Majutsu no Index series. He is the son of the owner of the Wadatsumi lodge. During the events of Angel Fall, his appearance was switched to that of Misaka 10032.
Not much is known, but he is tanned, presumably due to him often working outside in the sun. He also seems to have the propensity of working without a shirt on.
Angel Fall ArcEdit

He first appears after Touma wakes up and discovers that everyone's appearance has been switch. Touma goes down stairs to discover that Maou, in the form of a Misaka clone, is cooking something in wearing only apron and shorts, making Touma embarrassed.
Maou returns after Hino Jinsaku's attack on Touma. Here, he was apparently working in the ground floor, as such discovers the ruckus, forcing Kanzaki Kaori to threaten him into silence. He does not discover anything queer like magic, since he assumes that Kanzaki, Tsuchimikado Motoharu, and Misha Kreutzev are actors or police agents.
- In the anime adaptation, his role as the person whose appearance is switched to that of Misaka 10032 is taken by the lodge owner's wife instead.
