Biography

- Maya Lopez was born on the Tohono O'odham reservation in southwestern Arizona. At a young age, her father, Willie "Crazy Horse" Lincon took Maya from her mother and relocated to Hell's Kitchen, New York.

- Born deaf, her father began working for the mob to provide the extra funds needed for her specialty schooling. It was identified early that Maya was 'gifted', finding it easy to reproduce skills of older students as early as pre-school.

- Maya's father was ordered murdered by a high ranking mob boss. Hiding in her room at the time of the shooting, her father's last ack was to reach for her face, leaving a bloody handprint in its place.

- Maya was taken in by an influential crime figure. With the courts in his pocket, he sent Maya to the best schools money could buy. Maya received a Class-A education at a boarding school for girls, and by the time she graduated, she was so talented in dance and in piano, that she was considering auditioning for the Russian Ballet. Instead, she attended three years of college at Empire State.

- The mob, instead, offered Maya grand sums of money and praise to study cell phone footage of various heroes and masked villains. She trained in a penthouse dojo in NYC, practicing their moves, preparing for a plot to be used against the heroes as an assassin.

- Maya was lied to and told that a vigilante against 'the families' killed her father. She began to train to find the responsible party, but in the process of her investigation she learned that the mob had targeted her father in a hit. The resulting firefight and street battle in her escape made the evening news, and soon became silent.

- Under the vigilante identity of 'Echo' (A name selected for her ability to Echo the fighting styles of others), began to stalk the crime syndicates of New York and unknowingly came across a lair for the Hand. After hours spent watching their training and memorizing faces through a camera lens, she was discovered. The Hand failed to capture her, but the chase nearly killed Maya Lopez.

Character Details

Quiet and intuitive. Thoughtful and spiritual. Maya has never known much but silence, and she speaks more with her hands than her mouth, when able. A fire burns within her for the vengeance she seeks for her father's death, but the silence is lined in a thin veil of sadness. Being deaf, as she is, the world is muted in ways that most don't understand, and in result, Maya watches more than she admits.
