Maria (Japanese: マリア Maria) is a character from EarthBound Beginnings. She is the wife of George, and great-grandmother of Ninten.
She plays an important role in the plot of EarthBound Beginnings as the queen of Magicant, where she is known as Queen Mary (Japanese: クイーンマリー Queen Mary) and resides in her castle during the events of the game.
According to the beginning of EarthBound Beginnings, she and George were abducted by aliens in the year 1906. George managed to escape two years later, but was unable to rescue Maria. As a result, she spent most of her life taking care of an infant Giegue, the game's primary villain.
In EarthBound Beginnings
When Ninten first visits her castle, Queen Mary will ask him to learn her song so she could remember the tune. She tells him it will be an easy task, due to it being only eight notes long. She is a major driving force in the plot of EarthBound Beginnings; the Eight Melodies is a lullaby that she sang to Giegue and the bulk of the plot revolves around learning said melody.
When Ninten returns after learning the Eight Melodies, she reminisces her past and an alien named Giegue, causing her to remember that she is Maria and that Magicant was a mirage born from her consciousness. After telling Ninten and his friends about her past, she vanishes along with Magicant to join her husband, as her purpose has been completed.
During the final battle, when using the check command, Mary's consciousness informs Ninten's party that the only thing that may defeat Giegue is to sing her lullaby with all of their heart.
For clarity, the player cannot name a character Mary.
- A minor sprite error occurs during the scene where Magicant disappears, where Maria's dress is colored red instead of its usual pink.
