The Witch of Origins, who will live for one thousand years in the future. She holds the motherly magical power to give birth to one (1) from the Sea of Zero. At a glance, this magical power is frail, but no matter how many times you multiply zero (0), it doesn't become anything but zero. It is said that the one that she gives birth to could eventually surpass the heavens. She is loyally protected by Beatrice, who understands her true worth, and is in an alliance with Beatrice. Her magic is to make sweets fall from the sky (sprinkle sugar into water cleansed by the sun and say an incantation), magic to make tomorrow's dinner to be cream croquette, magic to make delicious bell peppers, magic to make the weather good when you go outside.

Lifting Strength: Universal (can lift universes in a story where they're described as mass and energy). Likely Immeasurable at her peak (She is most likely a 9 or 10 dimensional being considering her word is a reflection of her and witches undergo evolution whilst establishing their domains) | Immeasurable (Higher beings, even in the form of children, can move higher dimensional fragments with just their hands whilst dwarfing them in size. In the Golden Land she held a Universe between her and Beatrice)

Likely At least Complex Multiverse level+ (Her world is a reflection or aspect of her, non-corporeality, as a ghost and regeneration makes her very difficult to kill, simply thinking of her can sustain her existence) at her peak | At least High Complex Multiverse level whilst manifesting in the Meta World to Hyperverse level (By simply existing there, she maintained a higher dimensional Golden Land. Completely immune to all forms of attack from Bernkastel in the City of Books due to being part of Ange's world). Outerverse level via hax and regeneration (As long as she can think and recall her form, even if erased to a realm beyond the infinite dimensional hierarchy she can exist in a state of nothingness and return)

Standard Equipment: Bag with various magical items such as magic repellent charms, her one-wing staff, Sakutaro doll,
Intelligence: Genius level. Though she often acts immature for her age she is, however, extremely knowledgeable about the occult, the Bible, Halloween, and various other things, teaches Ange about magic and helps Beatrice with the creation of the Golden Land, whilst her magical items and crafting skills are that of a master. Her piece was able to figure out that Battler and his family was the main culprit of Bernkastel's game after a series of reasoning and conclusion though it was too late. She has also acted as an intellectual rival to Battler in several episodes, though this was before he became a game master and was still inexperienced.
Weaknesses: Due to her young age, her emotions can overwhelm her resulting in uncontrolled barrages of attacks that can be taken advantage of by more skilled individuals as Kanon showed, and cannot resurrect anything that was denied by their creator. Also noted to be too naive and trusting. Traumatised due to her mother's abuse. Her magic depends on her faith in it. | She is prone to boredom and the possibility of losing her will, She is dependent of Beatrice, Battler and Ange
Key: Piece Lady Maria at her peak | Higher layers (Meta World/Golden Land/City Of Books)
Note: Maria was stated to have the potential to surpass Beatrice after 1000 years. However, unlike Beatrice she has yet to reach that level, thus instead of 1-A we have no choice but to rate her by the feats she has performed.
