Linda likes illustrating dark fairytales, especially things which are unnatural and unreal. She illustrates stories and started writing since she was 16 and now almost 15 years in the making, maybe she will have it ready for the world to see soon as a book.

She is described as being the daughter of Eyzaathe, another character.
