Lina minimap icon.png Lina, the Slayer
The sibling rivalries between Lina the Slayer, and her younger sister Rylai, the Crystal Maiden, were the stuff of legend in the temperate region where they spent their quarrelsome childhoods together. Lina always had the advantage, however, for while Crystal was guileless and naive, Lina's fiery ardor was tempered by cleverness and conniving. The exasperated parents of these incompatible offspring went through half a dozen homesteads, losing one to fire, the next to ice, before they realized life would be simpler if the children were separated. As the oldest, Lina was sent far south to live with a patient aunt in the blazing Desert of Misrule, a climate that proved more than comfortable for the fiery Slayer. Her arrival made quite an impression on the somnolent locals, and more than one would-be suitor scorched his fingers or went away with singed eyebrows, his advances spurned. Lina is proud and confident, and nothing can dampen her flame.

  • Lina is Rylai's older sister. The two have a sibling rivalry.
  • In her youth, Lina's hair was often on fire. This still happens when she gets angry.[1]
  • Lina trained in the arts of flame as a child, including with acolytes of the Solar Goddess in the eastern Scintillant Waste.[2] The acolytes believed her hair was "touched by the light", and offered her trinkets to reflect the sun in her hair.[3]
  • Although Lina may not know it, she may be a "wyrm-kissed child", the likes of which are born only once every age.[4]
  • Lina owns a jewelry and a gown once worn by a noble who ruled the Desert of Misrule.[5]
  • Lina is very popular with the men of the desert, whose aristocratic sons often seek her out for marriage. The Lord of Misrule had a royal dress made for her, so that she would be presentable to his son.[6]
  • Lina once fought in a war, where she reduced the battlefield to a smoking crater.[7]
  • According to Rylai, Lina thinks human combustion is fun.[8]

Relationships[edit]

Rylai is Lina's primary rival, and the two siblings feuded often in their childhood.[9]. Lina appears to be the instigator,[10] and appears to have done her sister a great wrong, and is now living in guilt.[11] After having spoken with Lina, Donte Panlin may have gotten her to concede remorse. Acting as a middleman, he relays this information to Rylai, telling her that Lina may be ready to make amends.[12]

According to Mireska, it was their parents that drove Lina and Rylai apart.[13] Lina blames them for the whole mess.[14]
