Maria has long, coral hair with the top styled up in two horn-like curls with two blue flower accessories with the rest of her hair hangs loose down to her hips and has blue-green eyes. Maria is most often seen wearing a white corset like top and a blue jacket with feathered ends, a wide open collar, and white accents secured with a bow under her chest, white short-shorts, a stocking on her left leg and dark laced up boots.
Maria is an energetic idol and a bit mysterious. She's gradually revealed to have a conflicted heart, torn between her determination to complete her mission and her unwillingness to cause others harm. While she gladly makes speeches and fights other Gear users, she cannot bring herself to harm normal people. This conflicted nature makes her easily manipulated, but at her heart Maria just wants to be a hero.
Powers and Abilities
- Horizon Spear - Both blades of Maria's lance split open to expand the lance into a large energy cannon, which after a short charging time unleashes a purple energy beam.
- Unnamed S2CA Art - An augmented version of S2CA Tri Burst which uses Kirika, Shirabe and Maria as well as all 7 billion people on Earth, producing enough combined phonic gain to unlock the X-Drive of all six Symphogears, which together ram into the target as a bright lance of rainbow light.
- Vitalization - A six-member combination attack accessible only in X-Drive, which forms a pair of large arms out of Gungnir and Airgetlam's armor components that deliver a combined punch fueled by the energy of all six Symphogears.
- Maria shares some similarities with Amou Kanade:
- Both are Gungnir users;
- Both had a little sister;
- Both did a duet with Tsubasa;
- Both used the drug LiNKER to control their power;

- Both are the strongest from their team.
- But unlike Kanade, Maria plays a shy girl role when she's near her brave younger sister Serena
