Maria is a 14 year old nun in training who was abandoned by her parents. One day she receives a letter from quotGabrielquot saying that she has one relative left alive that desperately needs her help so she leaves the convent with one clue in search for this person. Along the way she encounters many people that she helps dangerous situations and obstacles and finds love. Because Maria was raised in the convent she is very ignorant of the outside world and is not even familiar with outside social interactions or the customs of the modern world. She has never watched television nor been to a circus. Due to this lack of knowledge she finds herself in many difficult situations. There are some discrepancies as to Maria039s age. Some references say 14 some say 16. Shoujo Magic039s release states 14. However Volume 1 Chapter 2 pg. 3 says 16.
