Maxine Caulfield, better known as Max (born September 21, 1995), is the main protagonist in Life Is Strange. The player controls her throughout their campaign. She is an 18-year-old aspiring photographer and senior at Blackwell Academy. She left her mom and dad in Seattle for the seaside town of Arcadia Bay, Oregon, where she grew up. After saving her childhood friend Chloe Price from being murdered by Nathan Prescott in one of Blackwell Academy's bathrooms, she discovers she has the ability to rewind time - and even stop it in its tracks. On the search for clues to solve the mysterious disappearance of Rachel Amber, Max must also discover how to use her powers to save the town of Arcadia Bay from a tornado. Max is geeky, quite introverted and slightly self-conscious, particularly when it comes to her photography. She rather likes to observe the world around her than actually participate in it; that's why several students including Juliet think she wouldn't really care for others. But on the contrary, she makes a genuine effort to show kindness to all of Blackwell's students. She's a clear, deductive thinker, smart and sneaky, but practical, reasonable, and mature for her age, especially compared to her best friend, Chloe. She is also brave, placing herself in harm's way to protect those she cares about. She refers to herself as being clumsy after breaking and spilling a number of items and having to rewind time. She has a great affection for photography, always taking pictures of her surroundings, and aspires to make it a career one day. She also seems to like obscure movies and anime, much like her friend Warren. She's always dreamed of travelling and exploring the world, as well as going on "adventures" together with her childhood friend Chloe. Max becomes more confident and decisive as her adventure continues, probably due to Chloe's influence combined with her new found time-altering powers. She feels deeply responsible for her actions and does not take her rewind power lightly, but perhaps doesn't yet realize the full consequences of her power. Some people regard Max as "nosy" as revealed in her Blackwell student file. There are several instances throughout the game where Max is called nosy by other characters as well.
Max is by far one of my favorite characters. But then again who isn't a fan of her. Thanks for looking.
