Bio: Maria is a cute girl but has a completely unknown past. Maria believes it is unnecessary for others to know things about her and has only revealed her first name to the other idols. No one, except Yoshino, knows where Maria is from and why she left her home first place. She has only hinted that her home may not be in Japan at all.
Due to her appearance of being that of a grade-schooler, Maria is usually paired with the younger idols for jobs and she has no problem with this normally. She was originally scouted as an idol because the producer thought she was a young girl to begin with.
Maria is just a go-with-the-flow type of person though she is not one to be angered. She can become a completely different person when angry; being cited as becoming an enraged demon. Yurika somehow tends to always find a way to get Maria angry or at least annoyed with her. Because of this Yurika has become terrified of Maria and normally tries to avoid her if possible.
Maria claims she has no purpose as an idol and only became one to have fun. She claims life was too boring before she was an idol.
• She is best friends with Yoshino and only gives information to her. The only person that knows her true age is Yoshino.
• It has been noted that Maria is a very good cook but a horrible baker.
• Maria is the only person that can tell Yurika what to do and get her to listen.
• According to Yoshino, Maria’s apartment is a complete mess.
