She has a quick mind, and can come up with a plan depending on the situation.
She's always been a sick child. She's not allowed to do anything that would excert herself, without the fear of getting "sick"
Mariya is a quiet girl, having gone to this school for a long time. Ever since she was young she had been in and out of school for various reasons, so she tended to be shy when actually around, not knowing much about anyone. But the people that were able to get close to her, and know the reasons why she's always in and out of school, she charishes. Mariya's family is the old fashioned sort, being the traditional type. Her grandparents came over to this town from japan, and raised her mom to the traditional way. Her father had lived in this town for some time, and his parents raised him the same way, coming from the same part of japan also. So Mariya is raised in the traditional house, and in the traditional way. Her father is a farmer, while her mother is a stay at home mother, she is always seen wearing a kimono, either running around town, or at home.
Ever since Mariya was born, she had always been a sickly kid. Her parents wouldn't allow her to do physical activities (AKA no righting skills atm), but even though she is a sick kid, her parents, being the traditional type, still expect her to excel in acidemics. When she is actually in school, she can be found either reading a book, or sitting on the side lines during gym class outside. She's shy, but she can be outgoing. Even though she has a heavy burden, she doesn't show it. She's always seen smiling, and being happy. So hardly anyone could ever guess the real reason why she's gone.
When Mariya was a kid, her parents got her a puppy. Ever since then the dog has followed her around no matter where she went, always keeping an eye on her. The dog can be found in the courtyard, curled up under one of the trees with an angle of the window of the class Mariya is in, of the school, during school hours.
