On a frozen day in Chicago, Maria Hill was born, though her mother died in childbirth. Estranged from her father, she went on to prove herself as an independent SHIELD agent. Growing up, Maria was constantly ordered around by authority figures, including her father, the principal who expelled her, and her Marine Corps. Commanding Officer.

Much of Hill's personality is based half on movie canon and half on comic canon. First and foremost is that she has been and will always be a Marine. She may be with SHIELD now, but she will forever be a "Devil Dawg". Hill is not be the kind of yell-in-your-face Drill Sergeant like R. Lee Ermey. Her personality is much more akin to Kiefer Sutherland's character, Lt. Kendrick, in A Few Good Men. She's calm, cool and collected, but still comes off as abrasive at times.
  • Prefers being called "Hill" rather than "Maria" because of her time in the Marines and the Maria song from The Sound of Music
  • Does not like having people in her personal space
  • Doesn't watch much in the way of sports, but makes an exception for the Chicago Blackhawks hockey team.
