Maria Salvaje, also known as La Llorona or the Weeping Woman, was an agent of Maro Ito.

Originally a single mother from Gotham City, Maria lost the custody over her children because of one glass of alcohol. She was transformed by Maro Ito into a watery ghost and was tasked to retrieve children for Medusa, who needed them to barter with Bloody Mary.

Upset over the distress she caused and angry at Maro, she turned on him during the organization's final play. When she kills Maro, her disobedience and seemingly broke her curse and her spirit can rest in peace.
