History

Marya Maximoff was a Romany traveler who lived near Novi Pazar, Serbia, close to the border with Transia.[1] After she and her husband Django lost their children, Ana and Mateo, the High Evolutionary came down from Wundagore Mountain and gave them the twins Pietro and Wanda in their place.[2]

Facing hard times, Marya's husband, Django, was moved to steal to obtain food for his family. This provided an inadvertent example for a young Pietro who, in turn, stole a great deal more. In light of his and Pietro's thefts, and the belief that Wanda was at fault in the later incident involving the display of her powers to save a boy, the nearby villagers convened on Marya's camp and attacked. They burned the family wagon, seemingly killing Marya, who was supposedly thought of as dead by her family.[3] In actuality, a woman in the mob took pity on the burning woman and managed to put out the flames. Marya's face was badly scarred by the fire and Django, unable to handle the fact that he had lacked the power to save her from being burned, found it easier to convince himself that she had died in the fire.[4] Left alone, Marya faded into obscurity.

Decades later, thanks to Dasha Kolarov, Marya was reunited with Wanda and explained some details of her past regarding her sister-in-law, Wanda's mother Natalya, just prior to being possessed by a Witch-Demon. The possession was ended by Wanda and the spirit of Agatha Harkness, after which Natalya's spirit possessed Marya's recovering body to briefly speak with Wanda. As the time she could stay on the Earthly plane drew to a close, Natalya healed Marya of the scars left when she was burned so many years prior.[4]
