Lin was of Chinese-American heritage and is the sole female lieutenant in the 3rd Street Saints. She is teased as The Protagonist's potential love interest sometimes heard by civilians[reference?]. She and Johnny Gat are always seen as disagreeing with each other, for example, the way he tips her to not throw her shoulder so much when she punches. She is the self-titled "best racer to ever come out of Chinatown" and her pride and joy is her customized Voxel, her sports car.
Julius Little assigns Lin the task of infiltrating the Westside Rollerz organization in an effort to gain more insight on how the Rollerz operate. Lin's information leads to the sabotage of one of the Rollerz's illegal street races, but Lin eventually gets impatient and decides to move up her timetable.[mission?] She devises a plan where she stages a rescue of the Rollerz chief mechanic, Donnie, and eventually gets to meet the true power behind the Rollerz: Joseph Price and his uncle, William Sharp.
Unfortunately for Lin, William Sharp eventually deduces her status as a mole. Sharp captures Lin and holds her in a pool hall as bait to trap The Protagonist. Sharp put them both in the trunk of Lin's Voxel and shoots each of them before locking the trunk and pushing the car into the water. Lin slowly dies as she bleeds out from a gunshot wound, although The Protagonist is able to escape.
