Maria | Catalina Sandino Moreno

Catalina Sandino Moreno
The Character

Name: Maria

Type: Vampire

Special Ability: None

About Them: Maria is only mentioned in Eclipse as a part of Jasper's past. Jasper recalls Maria as a tiny brunette with a soft and musical voice that had a tendency to be sharp. Maria was a very mature and able vampire was she was able to control her thirst even though she still preyed on humans' blood.

Their Early History: All that we know of Maria is her early history as Jasper has not had contact with her in a long time. Jasper was a major in the Confederate Army and Maria was looking for humans that she could turn to vampires to create a newborn army when their lives first became entwined. After turning Jasper, Maria found him extremely useful because he was able to control the emotions of the vampires around him. With Jasper and her sisters, Nettie and Lucy, Maria was able to take over numerous territories previously held by other vampires in Mexico. Maria eventually destroyed her own sisters, Nettie and Lucy, when they rebelled. Jasper later ran away with two other members of Maria's army, Peter and Charlotte, due to Maria's ruthless rule. After Jasper left we do not know what happens to Maria, although, there are indications that she is still alive.
