Maria was born in Austin, TX to mostly-Mexican parents. Her father's family came from predominantly freed slaves, and her paternal grandmother married into that line after migrating from Mexico. Her mother's family came from Mexico decades before, and have been U.S. citizens for generations. Maria's parents worked in conservation, attempting (throughout the 1960s) to protect the North American "Mexican Grizzly Bear". Her father was military-turned-ranger and her mother was an field worker / activist in general. When Maria was 18, she left Texas to go to college in Chicago. It was until returning home after being offered a job in the FBI that she met and fell for Jon Silvercloud, a Cheyenne who had recently set up shop in Austin. After less than a year, she became pregnant, and Maria decided a desk job would be for the best for a while until they figured out parenthood and their careers. The duo were recruited by SHIELD when their daughter (Eva) was 3.
Her mutation was latent until after meeting her late-lover, Jon Silvercloud. When the two began work together within SHIELD, his utilization of mysticism triggered her mutation. She sought aid in training herself in control from Xavier's Institute. After a few odd years of advisement from the Institute and working behind the scenes at SHIELD, Maria lost Jon (called 'Forge' by most) during a mission, and she began the daunting task of single parenthood with a five-year-old.
Years later, she had returned to Xavier's where she and Jon had both once studied / worked, due to Eva's mutation arising. She became a grandmother after a whirlwind affair that mirrored her own with Eva's father. Ronan Murphy had stolen her daughter's heart but given her a little boy in return. Maria was okay with this, especially considering the once-troubled assassin was counseled no only by the school's therapists and telepaths, but by herself as well. Her education, which had focused heavily on the criminal mind, post-traumatic stress disorder, conflict resolution, mental health in the legal system, crime prevention through assessing risk, allowed her to help him find peace and to see him through the rougher patches - for the sake of her daughter and grandson.
By the time 'the virus' hit, Faolan was almost six years old. The world changed completely in a matter of weeks. Xavier's became a haven for mutants and humans alike, seeking refuge from 'the zombies'. Maria didn't care what they were called, she just knew that she had to protect her family at all costs. So when the school became compromised, and her daughter and son-in-law had given their lives to save their son, she was willing to take any means necessary to make their sacrifice (and Faolan's life) mean something.
