Maria's Official Artwork
|Recruitment||Talk to her with Marth during Chapter 10.|
|Other information||Princess of Macedon, Younger sister of Minerva and Michalis|
Maria is the princess of Macedon and youngest of the siblings. When her brother Michalis became king, he asks Maria to become Dolhr's hostage to make sure that Dolhr doesn't attack Macedon and kill many people. Maria agrees to protect the Macedonian people, but the real reason she is made a hostage is to keep her older sister Minerva from rebelling. Maria begins to doubt Michalis' reason for her imprisonment when she can't see Minerva, and when Marth comes to rescue her she eagerly goes with him. Maria then helps in defeating her brother Michalis and goes back to Macedon to heal the wounded.
Maria joins level three, so she is underleveled by the time you get her. While some of her growths beat the other cleric Lena's, her base stats are much lower than hers. On average, 20/20 Bishop Maria will beat 20/20 Bishop Lena in the defensive stats HP, Def, and Resistance, but not by much, and Lena beats Maria in battle stats such as Mag, Skill, Speed, and Luck. Maria's 75% luck growth is averaged out by her base luck of 0, so she will end up having a very high luck, potentially capping it. While she may be passed over for Lena, Maria has her defining qualities, like being able to use the Aum Staff in favor of Elice.
