Most of what is known about her is learned in the episode "Fusion Cuisine", Dr. Maheswaran is shown to be a strict but loving parent. Her restrictive nature verges on overprotective and has caused Connie to miss out on ordinary pleasures most kids her age enjoy. For example, Connie is not allowed to eat food with high trans fat content; consequentially, she's never eaten a doughnut. Connie stated that her mother doesn't understand how her favorite show, "Under the Knife" is satire, and does not allow the show to be watched in her home. Dr. Maheswaran is concerned with keeping up good appearances, and reminds Connie not to rest her head on the table.
Connie is concerned that her mother would find the Crystal Gems weird and forbid her from seeing Steven. This indicates that she is (or Connie perceives her to be) a conservative individual. Despite the strange circumstances of the dinner, Dr. Maheswaran attempts to be cordial with Alexandrite, and even chastises her husband for his joke about the bread sticks. She values honesty and her intuition, and is deeply upset when she learns Connie lied to her. She finds common ground with Greg Universe and the Crystal Gems when she observes the way they responsibly admonish Steven for his actions, and allows Connie to continue seeing him. She is very concerned with safety as said by herself and Connie and would do anything at all costs to keep it.
Dr. Maheswaran is very protective of her daughter, Connie, demonstrated when she abruptly acted disgusted when Steven hugged Connie unexpectedly.
She is the wife of Mr. Maheswaran. They share very similar personalities and perspectives.
She was initially suspicious of the Crystal Gems but has since grown to respect them as responsible guardians for Steven.
Despite her initial dislike of Steven, she seemed to warm up to him enough that in "Winter Forecast", she allowed him and Greg to stay over so they didn't have to drive back during the snowstorm. In "Marble Madness", she also states that she doubts "Universe" is his real last name.
