She was trained to be a Mongolian contortionist by the best - and far too early in her career, had suffered injury that kept her from performing. Became a part-time Contortion Coach - in a country not her own - spending most of her waking hours in a wheelchair. It's hard to find students given her condition and status.
Came upon a mask that, when warn, somehow allows her to interact with literature. And most of the Contortion literature seems to be fanfic. So she's going to clean up this BS.
