Maria is an Animalian politician and former soldier currently serving under the Animalian Patriotic Front.
She is an anthropomorphic Bucovina Shepherd Dog and compared to the other members of the organization wears more energetic clothing during her soldier time as she wears a pink vest, grey leggings, white trainer socks and running trainers. In her government time she wears a white blouse, a black and white checked skirt and high heels.
Like many others in the A.P.F and Not in the A.PF Maria is shown to be an expert at martial arts particularly karate and judo. She is also very energetic and athletic but despite the fact she is an expert at self defense she is much more accepting than her friend Ioana, her clothing choice also comes into conflict with many members of the Animalian Patriotic Front namely Hafizullah, Babrak and Anwar who already argue over Brainy's nationality. Hafizullah thinks she is Afghan, Babrak believes she is Iranian whilst Anwar thinks she is Egyptian as Salukis originate from Egypt.
But though she may seem accepting Maria is really a dangerous enemy, Anwar also calls her "the perfect criminal" alongside many other female members in the Junta, much like Mirjana and Maarja in the Fox Junta her close friend Ioana treats her like a sister. Despite her fierce nature Maria is good with the Fox Junta's young children but also it's three youngest children: Guillermo who is five, Santiago who is two and Josefina who is one yet both the babies manage to walk. In her government time she is also much more professional.
