Maria (マリア?) is an American DigiDestined. Her partner Digimon is Centarumon. She is a little girl of Latin American descent and is apparently the youngest among the American DigiDestined.
In Digimon World Tour, Pt. 1, she is first seen riding on Centarumon and leading all the Digimon she found across America towards Central Park in New York in accordance to Benjamin's (Gennai's American counterpart) plan. As Phil (another American DigiDestined) leads the Digimon he gathered around America near Rockefeller Center, a Cherrymon becomes hostile and he calls for help. The Cherrymon manages to overpower the partner Digimon of Davis, Mimi, Michael and Phil. One-by-one, Maria, Lou and Steve arrive to help and introduce themselves. Together, they defeat the Cherrymon and proceed to bring all the Digimon to Cental Park.
After Davis sends all the Digimon back to the Digital World, she and all the American DigiDestined cheer for a job well done. When Mimi's parents arrive shortly afterwards and ask where the Digimon are, she and the others pretend not to know what they're talking about.
In A Million Points of Light, she makes her last appearance in the battle against MaloMyotismon. She is seen in the streets of New York, raising her digivice with Mimi, Michael, Phil, Lou, and Steve . After calling out the name of her partner Digimon and sending the light of her Digivice to the sky, she is transported to the Digital World along with her fellow American DigiDestined.
