Name: Lin-Lin Song (Lin for short)
Birthday: Spring 7
Favorite Gift: Pink Water Lilies and Moon Cakes
Lin is a very happy, playful, and energetic person. Nothing ever really upsets her, but when it does she is more likely to go off somewhere alone for awhile rather then get angry. She tries her best to be friends with everyone, sometimes to the point of annoyance. She has a mild case of ADHD, making her smart due to a photographic memory, but also easily distracted and extremely talkative. She's been known to go off tangent in nearly all conversations more then once. She is not completely na´ve to sarcasm or mockery, but it tends to take her by surprise and she is not one for sarcasm herself. She is a clumsy person, known to trip on her own feet sometimes. The only time Lin shows any amount of grace is when she plays her Pipa (a Chinese lute), sings, and in very rare cases, dances.
Lin-Lin Song was born the youngest of three siblings in a small farming village called Konohana. Her parents were farmers and so where her older siblings, her older brother planning to take over cattle raising from their father, and the middle daughter learning to tend crops under their mother. She was expected to go into the farming business as well, but plans tend to change. Lin was diagnosed with a moderate case of ADHD. It wasn't severe enough to cause any major problems, but she was too hyperactive and impulsive to be of any real help on the farm. She was highly intelligent do to the fact her mind continually absorbed information. Because of this, her father decided she was put to better use studying and aiming for something outside of the small town. He recognized her love of music and encouraged her to hone her talent, along with her strange photographic memory and hunger for strange knowledge. He believed she could be something great with her unique quirks and abilities. Her mother did not agree. She felt that Lin should have focused more on the family business or at least be trained in preparation to be a wife and mother. This disagreement between parents was stressful on Lin. She found herself resenting any alone time she ever had to spend with her mother due to her criticism and oppressive opinions. Lin spent most of her time in her room or with her father. She tried her hardest to be quiet and focused around her mother and other people in the village in order to not draw attention to herself, but sometimes this was impossible for her. Lin had resented her ADHD when she was younger but her father, and siblings after a while, convinced her that she was great the way she is. Lin had just grown to except herself and gain some confidence when tragedy struck.
Lin's father fell terribly ill and died not long after Lin's 15th birthday. The family fell into some hard times due to a lack of farm hands and massive medical debt from her fathers illness. The mother decided that the best way to enlarge the family and gain more income, was to marry Lin off. Lin had no desire to be wed to any of the men in Konohana her mother had in mind. It was clear to her that these men would want her to put aside her books, her music, to be quiet, and to simply stay at home and raise children. Lin loved children, but she had no desire to give up her dreams, nor marry a man she did not love. Her siblings agreed that this was not truly in her best interest and knew that their father would never had condoned this. With their help, at the age of 15 and on the eve of a planned engagement party to a man she had not even met yet, Lin ran away from home.
Lin was found by a traveling group of merchants, similar to Romanian gypsies. They listened to her tale and agreed to allow her passage with them, along with food and shelter, in return for her talent. She played music for them and sang whenever they asked. They even had her perform in public for extra money, half of which she got to keep. The merchants soon realized that the best way to keep the worst of her ADHD at bay, was to keep her mind active and focused. They gave her books on anything they could get their hands on, music especially. They taught her things like cooking, weaving, hunting, dancing, you name it. They even supplied her with any musical instrument they could. It was from them that she was given her Pipa, her prized instrument that she soon mastered with great skill. Living in in such a helpful and encouraging enviornment helped Lin grow into a happy and confident woman. She now fully embraced herself, the good and the bad, and finally lived her life the way she saw fit.
Not long after she turned 19 the group passed through a new town; Luna Della Rosa.
Lin became attached to the town and its people and so when the merchants left the town, Lin stayed behind. She is now a resident of the towns inn until she can afford a home for herself. She does odd jobs around the town but mainly she has become the towns musician. She plays for any reason they can hire her for; weddings, parties, funerals, romantic dinners, festivals, etc. Lin-Lin has become enchanted by the town and she only hopes her music has the means to enchant the townspeople in return.
