“You're their suncatcher, or boobrie, or whatever weird bird they call you.”
—Maruca, in Book 5: Lodestar
Maruca is Biana's ex-friend, although she and Biana fix their friendship in Flashback. Little is known about Maruca, except that she is Wylie's second cousin and she is currently Stina's friend, as well as Linh's. After Biana began hanging out with Sophie in Book 1: Keeper of the Lost Cities, she spills a lot of Biana's secrets to Stina. For example, she told Stina about how at first Alden told Biana that she had to be friends with Sophie so Sophie would come over more and Alden could keep a better watch on her (which causes Sophie to be upset and she wanted to be alone, resulting in her kidnapping). This is why Biana no longer wanted to be her friend, because she spilled her secrets and was mean to her friends. Maruca interacted with Wylie often as a young child.
Maruca has dark skin and black hair with a small blue streak in it. In Lodestar, she is described to have turquoise eyes. It was also mentioned that she bore a somewhat minor resemblance to Wylie.
In Legacy, her appearance is described as gorgeous. Her hair hangs in long, beautiful dreadlocks, half of which are pulled into a complicated twist on the top of her head with a streak of blue in the middle. Her lips are fuchsia in color.
Character Traits Edit
In Legacy, she is determined to join the Black Swan with her new ability being a game-changer to the defense played.
