Linka is from Europe, more specifically, Russia.
Her power ring grants her some control over Wind.
Her control over wind allows her to make the air swirl or gust, and she has also been known to create small tornado's. She has easily blown away a large metal bird created by one of the Planeteers most common enemies.
Linka has a special love for birds because when growing up she and her Grandmother raised birds to help out at her fathers mine to find shafts and dead ends in digging.
