<b>Maria Mercurial</b> is a rocker star who became famous for her hit song "Who Weeps For The Children" in [[2048]], which became the number one single on the charts for two months, which was followed by her next hit song "Take It To Mister". In [[2049]], she released "Puta" and became a novahot rocker star, the stuff of music legends. Her other album (presumably the one with "Who Weeps For The Children" and "Take It To Mister" released as a set) is called "Night Tears". Her talents include singing, playing synth, and acoustic guitar. She typically performs solo, although she has been known to join gatherings of other musicians and play in jam sessions with such luminaries as [[Warren Cartwright]] of [[Concrete Dreams]].

<b>Maria Mercurial</b> is a world famous rocker star.
 
   
 
She was in her mid-20s in the year [[2050]], which would place her birth date around [[2025]] to [[2030]]. She was the bodyguard, secretary, and mistress to [[Reynaldo Texamachach]], a senior exec at [[Aztechnology]] who had state of the art cyberware installed into her body and addicted her to [[BTL]] chips to control her. She rebelled and killed Texamachach in [[2045]] during a trip to [[Seattle]], and then escaped to the Barrens, working as a prostitute to supply her chip habit. She was picked up by a music promoter named [[Armando Hernandez]], who rescued her from the Barrens, cleaned up her act, and promoted her on the rocker circuit. In [[2050]], after a bizarre series of events where she was slated to switch to [[Max Foley]], she and Armando Hernandez were married in a simple ceremony. In [[2057]], she received this bequest from [[Dunkelzahn's Will]]:
