Maya relies heavily on reading lips to communicate since she is deaf.So Unless there is a psychic link she would have an issue communicating with someone who wore a mask or had their mouth covered.== Character Background ==
Maya is the daughter of a Cheyenne Gangster. She never knew her mother and to her knowledge she has no siblings. Her father was heavily involved in organized crime. As a child that secret was kept from her and she just merely thought she was raised in a very affluent environment. Due to her ‘disability’ her father enrolled her into a prestigious private school for the less inclined. There what the teachers thought where giftedness, and they were, were actually her mutant powers coming to the surface. She easily picked up musical and art performance abilities that lead her to becoming child prodigy.
She grew into a gifted and talented young woman who can mimic any skill whether it be on the piano or while studying martial arts from a time when she became a serious Bruce Lee fan. One night her home had been invaded by masked criminal. Arrested upon the floor she witnessed the murder of her father as his head was blown smooth off right in front of her. It was then that all the lies began to surface and her life wasn’t what she thought it was. They left her alive in a pool of her father’s blood. Not bothering to hide the fact that they had been hired to kill her father. Maya had spent the next few years tracking down every person connected to her father’s death. During her course, she found that the deeper she dived into the the criminal under world, the more the lies began to surface. The person who sent the order for her father to be dispatched was a woman by the name of Candace Callingbull aka Crazy Horse.
She tracked Crazy horse to New York City. Candace was running an illegal weapons operation on behalf of man named Wilson Fisk, aka the Kingpin. The operation was intercepted by the blind hero called Daredevil. Candace managed to escape, but Echo cut her route to departure. She asked the woman why she had her father killed. The woman only replied that he was traitor and was getting ready to double deal in business. That answer wasn't good enough and being put away wasn't option for every criminal. Echo was temporarily distracted by the Daredevil fight, which gave Candace enough time to pull a gun. Before the woman could fire she threw a blade into the woman's chest, killing her. It wasn't until later after following up on the Kingpin trail that she realized the woman she had killed was her mother. With that new revelation she fled the country to do some soul searching. Echo wanted to a new life.
During her time in South America she came across a representative of private organization she had never heard off. He told her he could help piece her life back together by balancing the blood on her hands. She wasn't sure on whether to trust him, but after much thought their agreement lead to her becoming a member of a team known only as the Wildcards.== Character Extras ==
She loves to eat cherry ice cream while listening to Moonlight Sonata (the first song she ever played). Maya is also an accomplished ballerina and gymnast.
A hand print of her fathers blood was placedo n her face as a reminder not to cross the wrong side. So now she mimics the reminder whenever she goes into battle.== Face Claim: ==
