- "Being a hero kicks ass!"
Maria strives to become a hero, but often fights with her co-workers due to her overly independent attitude. She enjoys yelling at subordinates.
It is revealed that at the age of 14, Maria was smoking in the bathroom of her orphanage when things "got out of hand", causing a fire. This led Maria to save a girl named Rosalia Rossellini, without a second thought after she heard her screams within the burning building. This inspired Maria to become a hero, and set her on the path to become a paramedic. During the progress of the story, she starts seeing Rosalia's ghost.
In the final operation before the Seventh Chapter, Rosalia appears before Maria at the mall. Rosalia says "Run...". Immediately before a bus crashes into the mall, leading to Maria becoming a real hero as she works to stabilize the victims.
In the Seventh Chapter, Patient Zero, it begins with Maria's scenario when a mysterious disease breakout occured. This disease is later known as the Rosalia Virus. After evacuating most of the infected to the hospital, she encounters CR-S01, who just escaped from prison when the spread has gotten worse and recovered some of his memory (including the knowledge of how to handle the Rosalia virus).
Later on, Maria and the rest of the doctors discover that Rosalia is the key to an antiserum. She, along with Naomi and Ian Holden, manage to uncover the cure to the Rosalia Virus.
In the chapter's finale, she assists CR-SO1 to operate and eradicate the Twisted Rosalia inside Naomi.
In the official Trauma Team art book, it is stated that Maria is Mexican.
