Maria is probably one of the sweetest and most gentle people you could ever meet. She genuinely and warmly cares about the people around her and is extremely giving and self-sacrificing when it comes to their needs. A loyal and honest person, she's keenly in tune with the feelings of those around her and sensitive to their needs. Idealistic by nature, she dreams of a perfect world and wants more than anything to make everyone happy. She values harmony and in small subtle ways works hard in order to create and maintain it.

Having lived a somewhat sheltered life, she's somewhat naive, bookwormy and very quiet and shy - even around people she's familiar with. While Shadow has done a lot to help encourage her to be more confident in herself, she often doesn't feel comfortable exposing her personal thoughts and feelings, prefering to shy away and watch others enjoy themselves than to directly engage. This often causes her to feel lonely and left out, having an inner desire to be that more confident person and to spend more time with others. She tends to worry excessively and it's not beyond her to blame herself harshly for her mistakes or to see herself as a burden.

Maria gets nervous easily and goes out of her way to avoid conflict, sometimes to the detriment of her own health. She doesn't tolerate stressful situations well and tends to 'shut down' if too much is put on her plate to handle at one time. Were it not for Shadow's guidance, she would have been left with zero confidence growing up.She's sensitive, insecure, and constantly underestimates herself and her own potential. She often looks to everyone else for help and guidance and seems to be nervous - even scared - of doing anything important by herself. She has a hard time making good decisions and prefers to lean on others who seem more confident in what they're doing. Yet at the same time she's eager to please when asked to do something and gets satisfaction from helping others.

Those who get to know her on a more personal level discover a charming, creative and affectionate side, and despite how hard she is on herself she's surprisingly optimistic. When it comes to Shadow she's much more open. She views him as the father she never had and relies heavily on his support and guidance.


She's naturally very flexible and nimble with her hands, as well as has a very good memory, but that's pretty much all she's got going for her in terms of physical ability. She also knows quite a bit of first aid, though she's no doctor by any means. She knows her way around computers and has skill in programming and is capable of low-level hacking. She's also been taught hand-to-hand and how to use different weapons by Shadow. She also wears a belt that carries smoke pellets.


She's pretty average by human standards; she's not outstandingly fast or strong and isn't really very agile. She gets migraines easily and loud noises (such as raised voices) can really disorient her. She overheats easily and can't take direct sunlight well without burning. Her size can also prove to be a disadvantage seeing as she can't easily fit into some of the spaces her smaller companions can. She's extremely insecure, easily intimidated and often cracks under pressure. She underestimates herself and her own potential constantly.

Pre-RP History

For as long as she's been able to remember Maria was raised by her grandfather Gerald, having lost her parents when she was too young to remember them. She was raised in a multi-specie community and had lived a somewhat sheltered life due to Gerald's efforts to protect her from being persecuted. Despite her grandfather's protection, Maria learned from a very young age that she was different, and that difference made her an outcast. Many refused to accept her, and in many cases even refused to even acknowledge her as a mobian, calling her some kind of outsider species. Maria became shy, withdrawn and self-conscious about her appearance. If she couldn't be accepted, she decided to try making herself invisible. For the most part it actually worked; most tended to avoid and ignore her. Finding this easier to deal with she turned her energy toward books, computers and video games as a means of occupying her time.

Then the Great War began, and Gerald was called in to serve the government. Humans were normally known as a private race who didn't mingle much in the affairs of other species, so when the news of a handful of humans, which included her uncle Julian and cousin Snively, reached the media it created a frenzy. The very thing that made Maria "invisible" had now unwittingly turned her into a target, and it only became worse when Julian soon betrayed his own side and staged a coup against the kingdom he had helped win.

At age seven, Maria's life was uprooted entirely. Gerald transferred across seas, taking Maria with him in the hopes of creating a less chaotic life in the war's aftermath. It was around this time that a mercenary named Shadow was assigned to worlk with Gerald, though as the stress of work and taking care of his granddaughter often proved too much on Gerald, Shadow often wound up taking care of Maria himself. The two would grow to be extremely close, treating each other more like a father and daughter.

Things would only get worse though. Gerald had kept a diligent eye on Julian — Robotnik's — war and progress through whatever means he could find, and knew it was only a matter of time before his influence spread itself overseas. Fully aware of the underground base known as Area 27, Gerald and Shadow agreed that it would become their refuge with Maria when the inevitable invasion finally came.

When the day did finally arrive Shadow whisked her away through the chaos to safety. She and Gerald were separated however, and she still to this day doesn't know what became of him.

Post-RP History

Nothing of noteworthiness yet

Crossover History

To be filled.


Gerald Robotnik Maria's grandfather and a scientist who worked in biological and chemical related fields. She hasn't seen him since San Grandia was overthrown and fears the worst.
Shadow the Hedgehog A mercenary who's helped in raising Maria for the last decade. They have a father/daughter relationship

Misc. Info

Maria vehemently denies any relation she has to Robotnik or Snively.

It's worth noting that, having grown up in a multi-species community, her feelings about clothing are lax compared to most humans, seeing clothing as optional and ornamental. However, she still generally chooses to wear clothing, as her lack of fur makes her feel out of place among her peers.
