Maria Mercurial

Rock musician in the Shadowrun roleplaying game. She was introduced in the 1989 Mercurial adventure book by Tom Dowd and Paul Hume. She has since appeared in other Shadowrun books and video games. Her breakthrough song, "Who Weeps for the Children," came out in 2048. Will come out. Whatever. (Damn future timelines.) Since then, she's performed solo and with members of Concrete Dreams.

In the 1996 Shadowrun sourcebook Portfolio of a Dragon: Dunkelzahn's Secrets, it's revealed that anyone who saw her one foray into country music would be granted a wish. Oh, if only all genre-changes resulted in such a payoff (looking at you, Chris Gaines).
