Mariah Romanova was a Russian ally of Warlord in Skartaris.

Mariah Romanova was a Russian national saber champion and a famed archaeologist. She had a brief relationship with her fencing instructor Mikola Rostov, and after the affair ended she left for Peru on an archaeological expedition. In Peru she met the Warlord, and was fascinated by his stories of the swords-and-sorcery dimension of Skartaris, so she followed him there in hopes of finding new adventures in life. Mariah and Warlord became traveling companions, and in time she began to have feelings for him. Their relationship was not to be, instead she ended up with their ally Machiste.


  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985–86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
