|“||Shadow, what do you think it's like on earth?||„|
|~ Maria wondering about the earth with Shadow.|
|“||Shadow I beg of you, please do it for me... for a better future! For all of the people who live on that planet... give them a chance to be happy... let them live for their dreams. Shadow, I know you can do it. That's the reason you were brought into this world. Sayonara, Shadow the Hedgehog.||„|
|~ Maria's final words to Shadow.|
Maria Robotnik is the posthumous overarching protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise.
She was the granddaughter of Professor Gerald Robotnik, the cousin of Dr. Eggman, and was Shadow the Hedgehog's closest companion aboard the Space Colony ARK until her death. Maria was gunned down by a G.U.N. soldier while she was helping Shadow escape capture. Her final wish was for Shadow to protect humanity.
While frail in appearance, Maria was strong in spirit. Eternally cheerful, optimistic, and positive despite her condition, Maria could see the good in almost anyone or anything. She was likewise a very kind, caring and thoughtful soul who always put others before herself, supported her friends, and held an unconditional love for the people of the world, even showing compassion towards her enemies when they were distressed. Because she never got down to earth, Maria was very interested in the planet and wished to see it. She was as well very encouraging as she could make others accept themselves and calm others down when in stressful situations, including Shadow.
Always gentle and thinking about others before herself, Maria was one who found it easier than most to forgive and forget, not to mention trust. Even after GUN violently raided the ARK and shot her down, Maria did not hold any ill will against the people on earth and only wished for them to live happy lives. She was also utterly selfless as she sacrificed her life for Shadow's sake, having faith he would carry on her dreams for her.
Despite her youth and frailness, Maria was brave, determined, and had a strong sense of righteousness. When the Artificial Chaos were on a rampage, Maria wanted to stop them to save the innocent, and during the GUN's raid on the ARK she refused to leave the injured researchers behind. Even on her deathbed, Maria remained undeterred and only wished for Shadow to fulfill his purpose.
Maria was a terminally-ill patient on the Space Colony ARK who had contracted the disease NIDS (Neuro-Immuno Deficiency Syndrome) which seems to be related to the disease AIDS.
Her grandfather, Professor Gerald Robotnik created Shadow as a means to study immortality and to use the fruits of the project to attempt to cure Maria.
After Shadow's creation, he became close friends with Maria. Sadly, Maria was killed by delusional soldiers after releasing Shadow from a cryogenic tube in the Japanese version. However, in the English dub, they say she was taken away.
She was dead for 50 years and she sometime reappears in Shadow's mind.
