A Zentrādi word that indicates the species that are about 1/5 the size of a Zentrādi—such as Earthlings and the Protoculture. Buritai avoided directly attacking the Earth and pursued the Macross because there is an old tradition among the Zentrādi to "not get involved with planets where Miclones live".
A system that enables giant-sized Zentrādi to become Earthling-sized, and includes a water-tank shaped Miclone device. It's able to change people from giant size to Earthling size, or vice-versa. The choice of body size is basically free for each person to choose, however that freedom is often limited by the Emigrant Fleet. In the Emigrant Fleets where living as a giant is allowed, the resizing devices are installed all over the place.

Mao provided guidance when her older sister was grabbed by the "Bird Man"*, and helped stop the "Bird Man" when it went on a rampage. In addition, Mao was later well-known as the leading authority in Protoculture research, and served as the leader of the 117th Research Fleet. Also, because the actress playing the Mao role in the "Bird Human -Tori Ni Hito-" movie was injured by a hydra, Ranka Lee hastily took over the role and came into the limelight.
