Maria is from a broken family. Her parents married young and her father left when she was seven, and he hasn't been in her life since.
Her mother is a former hippie and single mother and works hard to provide for them. She loves Maria and makes the best home she can.
Maria seems to have inherited some of her mother's habits and lifestyle. She is into herbal remedies, aroma therapy and fortune tellers. She is an average student and not really into school. She was even in remedial science for three years.
She is known for being wacky, over reactive, energetic, jumps to wild conclusions, and has a tendency to freak out. She is a terrible liar and doesn't work well under pressure, but she also has surprising insight at times and can be a good friend.
She is a romantic, has craved love all her life, and envies what she sees as Liz and Max's 'perfect' relationship.
She has a talent for singing and even though she sings pop and classic songs, hopes to be like Alanis Morisette someday.
History By Seasons
Maria reluctantly becomes part of the three aliens' secret. When her best friend Liz Parker gets shot, she is healed by Max Evans. Max turns out to be an alien, along with his sister Isabel Evans and his best friend Michael Guerin. Liz shares this secret with Maria.Although Maria seems terrified of them at first, when Isabel walks into her dream, she comes through when she refuses to tell Sheriff Valenti Isabel's true identity, thus earning the three aliens' trust.
Michael abducts Maria and her mother's car at one point in a desperate move to find answers about himself. It is during the ride their relationship starts to develop. For the first time she sees the emotional, lonesome and smart guy Michael actually is. They begin to reluctantly fall in love with each other. Over the course of the season, the two engage in a tumultuous on-again, off-again relationship. Even though they have their ups and downs, Maria is the only person who can comfort Michael after being abused by his foster father.
Maria constantly worries about Michael, Liz and the rest of the group and is often frightened by the situations that they all get into. When Tess arrives in town, Michael starts getting visions that he might be with Isabel and at one point they think she might even be pregnant with his child through some alien dream connection. While this proves incorrect, the ordeal gives Michael the push to become fully committed to Maria.
At the end of the season, when Michael and Maria seem to be finally happy together, Michael breaks up with her saying, "I love you too much". He feels that he is too dangerous for her, having just killed Agent Pierce, and walks away, leaving Maria in order to learn about his destiny.
Maria has been constantly calling Michael during the summer, but he has not replied. Although she continues trying to rekindle their relationship, Michael consistently brushes her aside, often coldly and unfeelingly, which deeply hurts Maria. As the group is threatened by a race of aliens on earth called the Skins, Michael and Maria banter while investigating one of them, named Courtney, and they discover that she has a shrine to Michael in her cupboard. Michael later has a short fling with Courtney. As the danger of the Skins grows stronger, however, Maria finds herself running to Michael when she fears for his safety. When the Skins are back to take revenge, Maria is left to save the day, using her science skills, which are almost non-existent. She succeeds and saves everyone's lives. Michael and Maria unofficially start their relationship. Maria develops a close friendship with the UFO Center manager, Brody Davis, around this time and gets Max to heal Brody's daughter, who has bone marrow cancer.
When the group goes to Las Vegas for a holiday, Michael, in Maria's opinion, does not pay her enough attention. However, as a surprise, he arranges for her to sing in a fancy club, which she told him was her dream, proving that he does listen to her after all. However, Michael refuses to go to the school prom which is an attitude Maria doesn't understand. She then suspects he is having an affair when he tells her he "has plans" that don't involve her. She spots him with another woman and bursts into tears. It is later discovered when he shows up late to the prom that the woman was his dancing teacher. He was taking lessons because he knew the prom was important to Maria.
