Maya Royko, code-named Nautika, was one of the original Stormwatch members, trained by Backlash to make full use of her aquatic/electric powers. She served as a moderating element in the early days of the team, keeping the peace between Flashpoint and Battalion. When Sunburst joined the team, they gravitated towards each other, getting married right before the disastrous StormWatch mission to Kuwait.
Nautika was part of the Stormwatch team when Kussein realized that he had lost the war and decided to lay waste to Kuwait. He and the rest of the team (Batttalion, Flashpoint, Sunburst and Nautika) stopped the soldiers from blowing up an oil field. In a surprise attack by Deathtrap and his associates Flashpoint, Nautika and Sunburst where attacked and thought to be killed but they were taken back to Gamorra Island as hostages, where they underwent brainwashing by the Daemonite Lord Defile. She was later saved by Stormwatch after Battalion probed a Gamorran's mind and found out they were still alive.
Nautika and Sunburst were removed from active Stormwatch duty after the Fire from Heaven incident, instead serving as advisers on an as-needed basis. Nautika and Sunburst are currently living in a quiet suburb, and are enjoying their retirement.
