Maria is Giana's sister. In The Great Giana Sisters, Maria is used as a second player option. In Giana Sisters DS, sadly, she's not playable. At the beginning of Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams, she is pulled into the dream world and abducted by Gurglewocky. Giana follows her sister through the portal and sees Gurglewocky eat Maria whole. In the lair beneath his keep, Giana defeats the dragon and retrieves her sister from the depths of Gurglewocky's bowels and returning home with their diamonds.
