|“||Good decision! I swear that your gear will always be in perfect condition: and I'll help you with any other problems.||”|
|–May promising to assist Shadow after he lets her accompany him.|
May is the one of the two characters who has eyeballs in the entire series. However, her eye color is light green. She has orange hair that bangs in the front. She also has a voluptuous figure that's highly noticeable in the video clips.
May has a kind, cute and caring personality, especially towards Shadow whom she later ends up at the end of the series. She is brave as well. She is intelligent in several aspects, especially in weapons. That is her original personality. However, after she got seized by Titan, her personality completely changed and she became insane and ruthless. Shadow faced hard time fighting with haspects, especially strategic and was greatly aware of Shadow's fighting style. That said, her badass side was revealed back there. After being defeated, she got back to her normal state.
May introduced herself as the local armor and weapons expert of Act I's town, and insists that Shadow should take her along on his journey. She promises to make sure his equipment is in good condition and on the journey, she serves as the assistant of Shadow and a person who generally has a deal of information to provide on mysterious subjects. She gives information about Tournament, Challenge, and other things so that Shadow could improve himself and defeat demons more easily. She is quite vocal regarding her opinions and speaks her mind freely.
After they reach the Gates of Shadows, Sensei informs that only someone with flesh and bones can seal the Gates. May reluctantly volunteers to close the Gates after Sensei and Sly refuse to do it. As the Gates begin to shut, a powerful torrent of wind rushes towards them and drags May along with it. Shadow tries to catch her, but she is whisked away inside the Gates just as they slam shut.
In order to save May, Shadow must open the Gates once more. Sensei tells Shadow that it seems the seals were connected to their Demons, so Shadow must defeat all six demons again to break the seals and reopen the gates. After he defeats all of the demons once more, Shadow proceeds to enter the opened Gates to save May.
Justice is the name given by Titan to May during the time when she is under the influence of Titan's mind control. Being mind-controlled, she is pure evil, just like Titan, wants to take revenge from Shadow, and kill other rebels. Her eyes are completely white just like every demon in the game. She wears a blue colored technological Armor. She appears at the middle of Chapter 2, and at Chapter 3, she unmasks herself and is fought as a mini-boss.
After Shroud has become insane, Justice is sent by Titan to neutralize Shroud and capture Shadow. When Shadow wins the Incubator tournament, he receives news that Shroud has broken into the Hideout and holds Cypher and the others at ransom, demanding that Shadow fight him. Shadow agrees to the challenge. After Shroud is defeated, Justice appears. She orders that Shroud be placed in the Incubator's feeding tube to "serve as nutrition for a new generation of Titan's military". Afterwards, Justice recognizes Shadow as an extraordinary fighter and commends his style, saying that despite his disguise, she knew who he was all along. It is then revealed that Justice is May. Completely under Titan's control, her eyes are now white like a demon. She asks Shadow if he wishes to take Titan's place. Then she sees Kali and thinks that Shadow had already moved on and found a new "girlfriend". She says that Titan was right about him all along - Shadow is not saving the world, all he wants are "chicks" and "power". Kali rebukes May and tells her that she is nothing but Shadow's liaison officer and that Shadow had come across the Gates for May. Cypher interrupts, revealing that he had now activated the Hideout's defense circuit, effectively trapping May. She realizes that she has been tricked and threatens that Titan would kill them all. Cypher states that May had lost her mind because of Titan and as long as Titan holds grip over her mind, she will remain like that.
After all of Titan's bodyguards are defeated, Titan summons May, which surprises Kali. May reveals that she killed her captors back at the hideout and managed to escape which enrages Kali. May tells her to restrict herself as she has brought Cypher to watch her fail and challenges Shadow to a fight with her. She taunts him by saying that she doubts Shadow can win as she knows all his fighting styles. After a challenging fight, Shadow defeats her and Titan's control over May breaks. Kali tells May to go back through the Gates, saying that after freeing her, Shadow has only one thing left to do - fight Titan. Although reluctant at first, May finally leaves.
May anxiously awaits Shadow's return after she returns from the Gates. As the Gates begin to crumble, she spots a silhouetted figure emerging from the dust and rubble - Shadow has not only managed to avoid the explosion and return through the Gates, he has also got his physical body back. The two hug and then decide to return home.

- Please, please, please... - If the player rejects her
- And here's my first advice. You can earn money in tournaments.
- With each stage your opponents get stronger and your prize bigger. - Explaining the concept of tournaments
- Oh! Looks like you've been beaten? Your equipment is useless in this tournament.
- It's time for you to buy some affordable armor in the store. - After Shadow defeated in tournament without armor equipped
- As I said, you shouldn't fight without a decent armor!
- Listen, I can't let you go without reliable equipment. - After Shadow defeated for the second time in tournament without armor equipped, and trying to exit without equipment
- Oh my God! Look at that huge bump on your head. You can't go on without a helmet.
- Now you have enough coins to buy one. Maybe it's time to visit the store? - After Shadow defeated in tournament without helm equipped
- You are awesome! Earn coins in the tournament so you can buy new gear and defeat Lynx's bodyguards. - After Shadow won a tournament
- I'm afraid, you can't beat Brick without better equipment.
- Attend the tournament and collect coins to buy better weapons and armor. You can do it! - After Shadow is defeated by Brick

- Great! I can't wait to see this. How about we find some targets to practice your new power on? - After Hermit is defeated

- She's really freaking me out, guys! She's right though. I feel like something dark and terrifying is yet to come. We need to be careful! - After Widow is defeated

- Long time no see, dear friend. The Gates are closed, so - you want more? You want to take Titan's place, don't you? - At the beginning of Chapter 3
- And who's that? A new girlfriend already? Titan was right! You're not "saving the world". Chicks and power, that's all you want! Why else would you climb in here? - Refers to Kali
- For me? What do you know about it?! He's not... But... are you... serious?
- Argh! Damn you, rebel! Damn you, Shadow! All that talk was just to trick me! But Titan will come! Titan will tear your heads off! - After May is trapped by Cypher
- I hear you, my lord. - Answering Titan's call

- So - where are we? At the end of a very long adventure, and the beginning of a calm and happy life? - After Titan is defeated
- What cellar is this and what are we doing here?
- In a way, it's a shame we dealt with him so easily. I wish I could seem what a mushroom armageddon looks like.
- Can you feel it? The portal is changing!
- The Underworld... seems somehow new and different, but it's still the same!
- She just... turned to dust? I don’t believe what I’m seeing! Her spiders are still here, and I think there are more of them. Is this another trick? - Halloween 2019 event update
- I swear that raven’s crowing is getting louder and more deranged.
- Wonderful! Now there are three of them! Just what I needed. Three witch sisters and their pets... or is that the same raven?
- She disappeared! And I don’t think she’ll be back. Looks like that just made the other two madder. There’s enough raven wings here to block out the sun.
- Is it over? Everything seems so much brighter and quieter. The spiders are scurrying away. I think we won, Shadow!
- Do you really think we'll take you at your word? - Christmas 2019 and New Year 2020 update
- Sounds good... All right, I'm glad that the holidays will be peaceful this year at least.

- Hmm, Shadow should have no trouble showing you who's top panda around here, but what do you offer in return?
- I enjoyed it too! Shadow, let's do it again!
- Who on earth is that? What are you doing in our world and why should we even listen to you? - Ram Navami 2021 update
- Pff! No idea where did you come from, but you wouldn't stay here for too long!
- Hey, Shadow, this bully has gone too far! Let's teach him some manners!
- Come back as long as you like, but you won't get past us!
- What kind of freedom is it when you deprive us of the right to choose... - Independence Day 2021 update
- You can choose who you wanna be. That's what makes us "human".
