|“||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.
