In 1996, he was transferred to the Gruppo di Intervento Speciale (GIS), Italy's elite counter-terrorist team. His time with the GIS would lead to his recruitment into Rainbow.
Maldini's specialty is stealth. At GIS, his ability to occupy positions undetected by the enemy resulted in the nickname "The Invisible Man". He is in excellent physical condition and is exceptionally quick on his feet. His demeanor is calm and somewhat aloof. Although a solid team member, he is too introspective to be a truly effective commander. Off-duty, he is an amateur marathoner and has competed in races across Europe.
