Maria Robotnik is the granddaughter of Prof. Gerald Robotnik and lived aboard the Space Colony ARK. She was terminally ill with Neuro-Immune Deficiency Syndrome, or NIDS, a fictitious, but rare and incurable disease. Gerald, in an attempt to find a cure for the disease and save Maria's life, created the immortal lifeform, Shadow. In creating Shadow, Gerald hoped to study and find the secret of immortality so that it could be harnessed and given to humans.
Whilst Gerald studied, Maria and Shadow become close friends, but before a cure could be discovered, Maria was killed during the invasion of Space Colony ARK by the Guardian Unit of Nations. Maria protected Shadow during the attack and pushed him inside of a stasis capsule bound for Earth in order to keep him safe. Before Shadow was sent away from the Ark, Maria asked him to protect the Earth.
