* Maka's mother in Manga/SoulEater is quite possibly being setup as something like this. Reportedly very skilled as a meister, former partner (and ex-wife) of the current Death Scythe, yet she has not turned up in any capacity - or had any significant references made - in the manga while Shibusen was dealing with Asura. The anime's Gecko Ending had her send Maka encouraging postcards from her trips around the world...rather than doing anything practical for her daughter or colleagues who were trying to prevent the end of the world. Maka idolises her mother, and from ''her'' comments about the woman she is clearly trying to emulate her as a successful, strong scythe meister.
