When Ryunosuke Naruhodo and Susato Mikotoba visit Courtney Sithe about Odie Asman, she confirms that the one on the Albert Harebrayne's stage and the one that appeared at the Crystal Tower were the same due to fingerprints. That was when Maria Goulloyne appeared wearing her plague mask. Not realizing both were still alive, she made motions to begin autopsying them, but lost interest upon discovering her mistake.

According to Harry Barricade, Maria Goulloyne enjoys waving her lancet around to imitate her mother. She would choose the same path after watching her mother labor over the murder victims, Goulloyne deeply respects Courtney Sithe. She has a rather morbid fascination with anatomy, desiring to autopsy varied ethnicities to see how they differ from each other, and is uninterested in talking with the living outside the context of her job. Despite her dark behavior, she is not a malevolent person and wishes to do her part in the justice system to the best of her ability. Despite her love for her mother, Goullyne also acknowledged that her corruption led her down a bad path and did not hold a grudge towards Naruhodo for her arrest.


  • Goulloyne comes from guroi ne (グロいね), "grotesque, isn't it?".
