Maria relating the story of the Tower of Babel

Maria is a sweet lower-class girl in Metropolis, and the love interest of the main character, Freder Frederson. She runs a church in the catacombs of Metropolis, where she restores hope to the workers, and prophecises the coming of the "Mediator".

This is "The Mediator Between the Hands and the Heart", or the person who will bring the working class and royalty class together.

She meets her mediator, Freder Frederson, when he is diguised as a worker in the lower city to get the perspective of the workers for 10 hours.

Throughout the film, she is impersonated by Rotwang's robot, also known as The Machine Man.
