Maria was born to a low-ranking noble family in a city on the other side of the Sanguine Wastes. On her 18th birthday, she was sent to Katur to be married to King Vaeryn III. Luckily, she fell in love with him, and their marriage was a happy one, with 4 children: Auguste, Vaeryn, , and . Upon Auguste’s disappeance, she fell into a depressed state, but she did not let it consume her as it did her husband. Upon her husband’s death, she watched with pride as her second born son accepted the crown. She was hesitant about being made Advisor, but she soon realized that her son was not quite as ready to take the throne as he claimed. She accepted, mostly so that she would be able to help her son out as much as she could.
Maria is very kind, though she is incredibly devoted to, and protective of, her children. She is a popular figure in the royal family. Though she is 48 years old, she still has several noblemen that desire to court her. She has always refused, however.
