Notably, she has the same name in the American release (Advance Wars: Days of Ruin) and Japanese release (Famicom Wars DS: Ushinawareta Hikari). In the latter, her name is リン (Rin; Lin). She is the only character in Days of Ruin to have the same name in every release, although Max, Hachi, Rachel and Sasha also use the same names in each language release.
Lin is the second-in-command of Brenner's Wolves, below Brenner and later Will. She acts as the battalion's main tactician and usually offers Will and the player tactical advice. She is specialized in scout tactics and is the CO used in almost every Fog of War level in the campaign, the lone exception being Hope Rising. Perhaps her most important act is murdering Admiral Greyfield late in the campaign.
Lin is a distant and calculating character, who likes an occasional joke at the expense of others. She does have a softer side, and occasionally shares fashion and beauty tips with Isabella.
Lin has great respect for Brenner, although she often argues with his views, favoring a logical viewpoint against his moral views.
Her relationship with Will is similar, but due to his lower rank and age she occasionally makes jokes at his expense. Her jokes are not cruel and are usually just playful teasing.
