Heroine Source[edit source]

Maria's profile on Wikipedia's

Wikipedia = unreliable. --Crazyswordsman 20:33, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
Regardless, there's not enough character development to call her a heroine; she is the female lead on account of her being the only permenant female character in the party and a relation of two of the others. However, she never does anything that follows the connotations of heroine. On a side note, you should stop looking for sources of heroine; it's a class A drug and can do you some serious harm if you continue to use it in such amounts. Oh yea, I'm back properly now.
It could be very well you who edited it as heroine there. Most likely in fact. --Auron Kaizer 11:17, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

No, actually it has been there for 3 years now. I have never changed it because I don't have that an account there. User:Eris

We were talking about Wikipedia. Anyway, the guy that first wrote heroine was some user named warpedmirror. I didn't have anything to do with it. User:Eris

Bow[edit source]

This is more gameplay advice, although I came onto this page to see if it helped and it didn't. I'm playing Origins... she cannot hit the opponent with any weapon I give her other than the bow. Any ideas why? 14:45, July 28, 2010 (UTC)

Either rotten luck or some quirk of the code. I've noticed the same thing myself, though. She otherwise seems to do best unarmed, but it's part of what made me quit playing. Natural growth system? Fine. Chrono Cross did the same thing. But at least everyone in Chrono Cross could hit the broad side of a barn. XD Bluestarultor 14:50, July 28, 2010 (UTC)
Is Maria in the back row? Because if she is, she can't hit anything from there except with the bow. ScatheMote 15:39, July 28, 2010 (UTC)
I thought that after I wrote the message. I don't understand why she can't even attack herself on the back row though. 17:04, July 28, 2010 (UTC)
The back row makes you immune to all physical attacks until everyone in the front row has died or been petrified. It's also a terrible idea if you want to build up your characters to have decent HP. :p ScatheMote 17:24, July 28, 2010 (UTC)
IIRC, it didn't matter much WHERE you put her. Her accuracy just was not very good with anything else for some reason. It's been a while, though. Bluestarultor 15:52, July 28, 2010 (UTC)

"First female player character"[edit source]

In the Trivia there is this point "Maria is the first female playable character in the series since the playable characters from the first Final Fantasy had no designated genders unless the player named them as such."

By this logic, Tirion and Guy are the first male playable characters, but no such trivia is listed on their pages. Even though it says "no designated genders" the point really seems to suggest that the PCs in FFI are male by default
