|“||I may be human, but inside me lay a power even greater than that of even the mightiest Henshin. For years I had no idea. Even when I found out about it I could not unlock it. But now I have, and you'll be the one to witness my ultimate power.||„|
|~ Maria regarding her latent potential|
Earth was in shambles. Crime had taken over its streets and injustice was everywhere. Corrupt governments were helpless to stop it and no-one would stand up to the crime lords. Rebellions were created on one day and were dissolved the next, helpless to stop the syndicates.
The daughter of an influential crime lord, Maria was one of the first to truly challenge the establishment. While her typical appearance was that of an incredibly accomplished athlete who attempted to distance herself from her father through a deep patriotism, petty thugs knew her as the Masked Marauder - a strong vigilante who targeted large gangs of thugs on the street every night.
Appearance and Personality
Maria's training regiment left her with a toned body, described as one of the most beautiful lady of her time. She was quite slim with a curvaceous figure. Her typical makeup was light; usually just eyeliner and nail polish. She had long brown hair that she usually wore in a ponytail to keep it out of her way in combat, and typically put a considerable amount of time into making sure that she looked her best. She took pride in her appearance. She usually wore a red dress with black tights and white boots. But when it was time for her to take on crime, she donned the Masayoshia suit.
Headstrong and ambitious, Maria was quite similar to the females of the Henshin race. She hated crime and injustice as she had grow up in an environment that was dominated by it. She is fond of anyone who fights it, something which lead her and Aikkon to pursue a relationship. She will not hesitate to kill anyone who threatens her or her family and friends. She is a member of the Wandering Souls alongside Aikkon, Noctis and later, Yasai.

It also granted her true flight and resurrection from a corporeal death)
Attack Potency: Street level (Maria was the greatest fighter of her generation. She was known for her frequent engagement with large groups of skilled thugs and for easily defeating them) | At least Wall level+ (Aikkon's training allowed Maria to tap into an extremely small portion of her latent potential. Despite this, her physical attributes pushed beyond the level of human and into the level of Superhuman.) | At least Planet level (easily defeated the rampaging Ensyn Shenlong in his early form), likely Large Planet level (comparable to post-training Ringo, who intern was comparable to King Yasai. However, she along with Noctis were nothing but fodder to even base King Yasai after his training.)
Speed: Peak Human (before becoming a fighter, Maria was an athlete for the United States of America. She broke world record for the females 100m sprint. In combat, her incredible speed was a trump card, moving faster than humans could track and performing many complex maneuvers in seconds.) | Superhuman combat speed (she set the record for the world's fastest punch, at over 50mph.

Durability: Peak Human level (her physical resilience was often Maria's diminishing factor. She could take more-or-less anything from a normal human, but a good swing from something like a baseball bat could easily take her out.) | Large Planet level (took many hits from Ringo, and survived a hit from King Yasai, albeit barely.)
Stamina: Peak Human (could fight even after sustaining serious injuries | At least Peak Human+ (could fight even after sustaining otherwise fatal injuries) | Superhuman (defeated at least 1,500 Henshin warriors during the invasion of Earth and battled Ringo for a while until Aikkon intervened without tiring.)
