Storyline “Maali is Estonia’s most recognised master of spinning and whirling. She just never gets dizzy. Maali says this unusual superpower comes from being repeatedly struck by lightning while installing lightning rods in trees as a child, but the truth is she was conceived when her parents got busy on a merry-go-round. The lightning only had a minimal effect on her. As a patriot of her country, Maali has largely dedicated her talents benefiting the people, culture and government of Estonia. She has personally tested out village swings, wind turbines, and even radar masts for the Border Guard. What’s more, if there’s ever a drought, she’s happy to spit three times over her shoulder to makeit rain. For an extra fee, of course”
