During the Season 22 elections, Mueller gained the Negative modification as a result of the Heads over Tails blessing. Mueller then traded to the Yellowstone Magic in exchange for Tiana Wheeler via the Little Swap blessing, becoming a lineup player in the process. Mueller then lost the Negative modification as a result of the Roster Flip blessing.
The remainder of this article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community.
Hailing from the Rocky Mountain City States, Mueller was an old roommate of Tyler Violet and joined the Moist Talkers in her memory. They wear a pearl eyebrow piercing, made from the ashes of their friend. Lionfish spikes run down Mueller's back, complimenting their hair, which is styled into a spiky mohawk.
Mueller initially planned to join the Seattle Garages, but after Violet's passing, they took the opportunity to honour their friend and join the Moist Talkers. In their first pre-game interview, Mueller reported that the players were "gross, but close" and that they had "found a cool bunch to hang with [sic]." Four days after joining the team, Mueller ate a peanut infused with the spirit of Tyler Violet, finding it incredibly delicious and gaining great power from the infusion.
Richmond Harrison and Mueller are known to have been close friends during their time together on the Talkers, and remain in regular contact since Richmond's trade to the Hades Tigers in season 6. They can often be seen trading stories before a Talkers v. Tigers game.
Mueller is currently in the process of starting a band called the Temperate Sea Monkeys.
Time with the Moist Talkers
Mueller was seen by some of their teammates to be a leader if not an adopted parent. They are known to be forthright, opinionated and often willing to provide advice to those in need. This often causes them to run afoul of team troublemaker Greer Lott, leading to the two often butting heads. In an interview with the Halifax gazette, Lott claimed “Ziwa is really the glue of the Moist Talkers, sticky, unpleasant and always on my back”. Despite these claims there seems to be a begrudging unspoken respect between the two.
After the events of Ruby Tuesday Mueller began to take an even more active role on the team, apparently taking on the duties of the now incinerated members. This attitude continued for several seasons as Mueller further overextended themselves by taking a lead in the training, fitness regimes and cleanup of various sections of Gleek Arena. This pattern was only halted due to the intervention of teammate Eugenia Garbage who helped Mueller ease off from their duties and gain a more healthy relationship with Blaseball as a whole.
Joining the Yellowstone Magic
Ziwa’s initial move to Yellowstone was a bit rocky. In their desire to help they ran into many “fish out of water” mishaps; misfiling Eizabeth Elliott’s research notes, volunteering a bit too often with the Park Services and leaving themself overextended, and rearranging Bevan Wise’s spell component storeroom. But the move was made easier by the presence of Jesús Koch, who roamed to the team two seasons prior to Ziwa’s arrival. Their roles on the team were now reversed—it was up to Jesús to help Ziwa settle into their new team, repayment for them helping Jesús when he joined the Moist Talkers.
During one of their many calls to the Moist Talkers, Eugenia Garbage reminded Ziwa that they were allowed to take time off and relax, and to ease into their new life in the Parkpark. Taking the suggestion to heart, Ziwa has been taking a step back from leadership roles. They have been enjoying hikes through the Parkpark and sharing campfire stories of their time in Sunken Halifax with their new team. While initially a bit hesitant to begin studying magic, they have begun to dabble in wayfinding. They also have a growing friendship with Washer Barajas, who introduced them to sulfur pool baths.
