- "Being a hero kicks ass!"
- - Maria Torres
Maria strives to become a hero, but often fights with her co-workers due to her overly independent attitude. She enjoys yelling at subordinates.
- Trauma Team: Main Character of First Response Mode
Maria is a young adult woman who has a tanned complexion, short dark brown hair, and green eyes. She wears a black tank top under a yellow-green jacket with goggles hanging around her neck, yellow gloves, hot pants with a belt, and black and yellow boots.
Design-wise, she is roughly based on Chie Satonaka from Persona 4, another Atlus-made game, who also sport the same short hair-cut and yellow-green jacket. Because of this, they both share the same demeanor, both being hot-headed and emotional.
In the official Trauma Team art book, it is stated that Maria is Mexican.
Maria is depicted as a hot-headed person, often lashing out angrily at people around her when they make mistakes or when she feels they are holding her back. She has a tendency to address people offensively (using words like moron, idiot, etc) but she does not mean this in harm, and has the same desire to save lives as the other members of the trauma team do.
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.
The Seventh Chapter, Patient Zero, begins with Maria's scenario when a mysterious disease breakout occurs. 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).
In the chapter's finale, she assists CR-SO1 to operate and eradicate the Twisted Rosalia inside Naomi.
- She is voiced by Hitomi Nabatame in the Japanese version of Trauma Team. Bringing another relation to Chie Satonaka, she is voiced by Amanda Winn-Lee in the English version, who has also voiced Yukiko Amagi, Chie's best friend from Persona 4.
- Tomoe and Maria's design and personalities are based closely to Persona 4's Yukiko Amagi and Chie Satonaka respectively.
