Professor Gunnar Maelstrom, also known as simply Professor Maelstrom, is the one of the four main antagonists (alongside Coach Brunt, Countess Cleo, and Dr. Saira Bellum) of the Netflix 2019 series Carmen Sandiego. He is the de facto leader of the organization V.I.L.E. and the instructor of psychiatry. He is also the former teacher, adopted father, now arch-nemesis of Carmen Sandiego.

He is voiced by Liam O'Brien.


Professor Maelstrom is a middle aged man with pale skin and white hair with a receding hairline. He has broad shoulders and wears a black blazer over a dark grayish purple turtleneck, white pants, and black shoes.



Professor Maelstrom is the leader of V.I.L.E. He is the one who taught Carmen, El Topo, Le Chevre, Crackle and Tigress the arts of psychology and how to make the perfect diversion (as shown in the example, where Maelstrom changed his suitcase full of worms and bugs with the one with money in which Tigress swapped it), and in the aforementioned example, he told the four students that in order to make the perfect diversion you need to have a different object, that weights the same as the one of their targets'.

  • Malestrom's grudge against Cookie Booker could be a subtle reference to the hostile relationship that his previous incarnation had with Carmen Sandiego in the 90's cartoon.
  • Maelstrom is implied to have albinism judging by his unnaturally pale indigo skin.
