A small, slender, easily-angered sorceress.
She is the second daughter of a family of merchants, she fled from her home after she incurred the wrath of her powerful elder sister Luna. From there, she went to a magician's academy and excelled so well that she was awarded a color (a special sort of title assigned to sorcerers, such as Rezo the Red Priest). However, she is too embarrassed to admit that her official title is Lina the Pink Sorceress, so she tends to go by Lina the Bandit Killer instead. After school, she became an itinerant wanderer (and bandit-mauler), always seeking food and treasure.
Lina is a very strong-willed person, not much really deters her from her goals not even her friends. Often times, in order to keep the element of surprise she will sacrifice her friends in order to get a hit off on her enemies. She often wants the quickest, shortest way to get to her goals as possible and slowing down to worry about morality or ethics just gets in the way of that. Most often, she keeps a happy smile on her face despite whatever is going on. She figures the best way to get stuff done is to be as cheerful as possible, or at least to seem that way.
She is a very short temper person, she will throw high level spells at people for just insulting her or beat them half to death with anything near by. She is a very greedy person, that will usually put profit over everything else. She will only do things if the price is right, not out of a sense of justice. But sometimes will forget about money if she become close to the person and will let them off the hook. She also have a big appetite because of using high level magic all the time, and need to refill her magic capacity
But she does care for her friends deeply and will go to extremes to protect them, going as far as using the Giga Slave (a spell that have the power to destroy the universe, if miss fire) to save there lives. She also have a great fear of her older sister, ever since she use a magic spell to project her sister taking a bath to make money. Which cause her sister to punish her so badly that it scar her for life. Every time her sister name come up, she freak out and hide.
