CHARACTER BIO:

 

Maria is a woman of determination. When a young woman, Maria left her home world of Latanus to escape her tumultuous past and make a new life for herself. She was intent on traveling to Yewess, the cultural center of the star system. However, when the transport ship she was on experienced thruster failure, she ended up in Plymouth City on the frontier world of Endía. Maria found a job working for the owner of the Old Liberty saloon and decided to stay. When the old man died, he left ownership of the establishment to Maria.

Maria was one of the earliest characters created for West World. As the author was writing the outline for his story, though, he couldn't decide on something he wanted to do at the end of the story. He solved his problem by splitting Maria into two characters, with Ms. Keym being formed out of one half of the original Maria character.
