Leon's biological sister, Maria is a strong young woman who carries on her fight against the empire even as she searches for her lost brother. She accompanies Firion, Squall, and Laguna throughout the story of Dissidia Gaiden: Two Sides To Every Story. Like Firion, she too wishes to see a land free of war and tyranny.

Magic Arts: Flame{Ground}: Similar to Firion's fire spell, except with increased range and power.

EX Mode{Artemis Bow Equipped}: Equips her ultimate weapon, the Artemis Bow. (I can't seem to find a picture of it's FF2 incarnation.)

EX Burst{Elemental Arrow}: Launches a barrage of magic-imbued arrows, then ends with Ultima Arrow.

Alternate Outfits

Her default outfit is based on her Amano artwork, and PSP sprites. She wears a toga-like purple shirt with a gold plate covering one breast, the plate is held in place by a cloth strap that wraps around her neck and also connects to the shirt, and a leather strap making the metal plate resemble a bikini.

"Innocent Origins": Maria's first alternate outfit is based on her appearance in FF2's opening cinematic in both the Final Fantasy Origins and PSP remakes. In this outfit she has shorter hair, and wears a red and white shirt, a black and red skirt, blue leggings of different lengths, and brown/black leather boots. She also has a shorter haircut, a pouch strapped to her left leg, and wears a leather glove on her left hand and a bangle on her right.


"Classic Leotard": Based on her sprite appearance in the original NES version of FF2. Her outfit keeps most of the Amano design, but takes on the colors of her NES sprite. In this outfit her hair changes colors too. (It's the red outfit in her description pic, right next to her default outfit.)


Maria was the first obviously female character in the Final Fantasy series, as the characters in FF1 were just generic character types that you named yourself. She is Leon's biological sister and Firion's foster sister. She escaped along with Firion, Leon, and Guy when the Palamecian Empire destroyed their hometown of Fynn. Along with Firion and Guy she later joined the Wild Rose Rebellion to fight against the empire. She has now been summoned as a Warrior of Cosmos. Though, much like in FF2 she hopes to find her brother and bring him over to Cosmos' side.

Maria (FF2) jumped out of a portal, and landed near Firion and Squall. "We should be careful here. If this is in enemy territory, then we'll need to keep our guard up." she said, readying her bow in case any Manikins or Warriors of Chaos showed up.
