This experience was why she was chosen to be the original leader of the group. However though her struggles in Russia had left her an expert marksman and skilled tactician she also became coldly logical and unwilling to interact with others on an emotional level which led to being labeled quotKazuarquot in anime its said that this name means quotphoenixquot but actually its a bird but its closest relative is ostrich. After a series of set backs it was decided that Ichiro gami should replace her as leader with Maria remaining as his second. After an initial period of friction between the pair when gami arrived Marias attitude began to turn slightly though she still remains the most coldly emotional of the group. Sakura looks up at Maria very much at the beginning. Source: wikipedia
