- "What he wanted was to make a living and keep a roof over over heads. And you took advantage—you paid him to get himself killed!"
- ―Lin blaming the Republic for her husband's death
A female Human, Lin was alive during the Cold War fought between Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire. At some point, Lin married a Human named Bellis, and the two of them lived together in a two-story house in Talloran village, a small settlement near Fort Garnik on Avilatan, an island on the planet Ord Mantell. Eventually, a war broke out between the Republic and a group of separatists intent on overthrowing Ord Mantell's government. The couple's home of Talloran village was the first village on Avilatan taken by the separatists, who barricaded it against Republic attacks. At this time, Bellis worked for the Republic by spying on the separatists' activities. Despite the separatist occupation of their village, Lin and Bellis continued to live at their home, and Bellis frequently risked his life to provide the Republic with intelligence on the separatists.
Around the year 3,643 BBY, the Republic needed information the whereabouts of a recently stolen ZR-57 orbital strike bomb, and Bellis went to meet a newly recruited sergeant of Havoc Squad, a Republic Special Forces unit, in the village, but was killed by separatists before the sergeant arrived. Upon discovering that Bellis was dead, the Havoc Squad sergeant went to the couple's home to retrieve Bellis's field box. When Lin found the sergeant inside her home, she first believed that the individual was a separatist soldier breaking into her house. However, she soon realized her mistake, and rebuked the sergeant for risking the discovery of her husband's job as a spy. Then the sergeant informed her about the death of Bellis, which upset Lin greatly, and caused her to become enraged at the Republic and the sergeant, who she both blamed for the death of Bellis.
Despite her anger and her reluctance to give up the field box, Lin eventually showed the sergeant its location in her home. The sergeant then left her to grieve for her husband after advising her to leave Talloran before the separatists attacked her home.
- "Bellis was a good man, and now's he's dead because of some stupid war on a backwater planet no one cares about!"
- ―Lin upset at her husband's death
Lin had brown hair, fair skin, and blue eyes. She sometimes wore a small piece of jewelry that hung from her hair down onto her forehead. Lin loved and cared about her husband, and when she discovered her husband's death she became greatly upset. In her anger at the her husband's death, Lin berated the Republic sergeant that brought the news about the failure of the Republic to safeguard her husband. She also expressed her viewpoint that the war and planet it happened on were unimportant, and that Bellis only worked for the Republic to provide her and himself with a home and livelihood.
Despite the condolences expressed by the sergeant, Lin still blamed the soldier for his failure to keep her husband alive. After giving the sergeant her husband's field box, Lin stayed behind in her home to grieve for her husband.

The player met her in her home in Talloran village after finding her spy husband dead.
