“Once John gets a hold of this armor, we'll all start sleeping a little better at night.”
— Maria-062

Maria-062 was a SPARTAN-II super soldier of the UNSC Naval Special Warfare Command. She tested the Mark VI Mjolnir Armor that would later be issued to John-117.


Special Warfare CenterEdit

Prior to the Battle of Earth in October 2552, Maria tested the new Mark VI Mjolnir Powered Assault Armor in Seongnam in the Kyonggi Province of Korea.

She fought against a squad of Orbital Drop Shock Troopers from the 340th ODST Combat Training Unit with tactical training round in a mock battle near the Special Warfare Center. After the exercise, the armor was approved for battle and was sent up to Orbital Defense Platform Cairo Station, where it was issued to Master Chief Petty Officer John-117.[2]

Personal and Family LifeEdit

At the time of the exercise, Maria had claimed that she had retired from service with the intent of starting a family.[3]
