Maria is the daughter of Nikolai and Claudia, granddaughter to Balthasar. She was born on the surface in the Terrane Area, but a few years before the game her father - a remowned engineer - was kidnapped and forced to work for Solaris. She was captured along with him, but when he finished his first prototyope gear for the Solarians (Seibzehn) he helped her to escape, sending her and that gear away toward Shevat. Nobody knows how she pilots the gear, but it's safe to assume that it was somehow aligned with her, personally. Due to this invasion into her life, Maria harbors a huge grudge toward anything affiliated with Solaris. She uses Seibzehn to deflect all attacks on her home -- Shevat -- and plans to someday take her revenge on the other aerial city, and save her father.

When Fei and his friends make their first trip to Shevat, Maria is there to fight them. Once they defeat her she leads them into the city, and to the Queen. She is eager to help them with their cause once she realizes it'll give her a chance to fight Solaris, but before they can come up with any plans the city is attacked by Solaris. The battlegroup is lead by a large red gear, similar to Seibzehn in design, and once its transmission reached Shevat, she knew it was her father out there leading the attack force. With Chuchu's help, she defeats her father, and finds the truth about what happened to him.
