Lynn (IPA(key) /lɪn/) is an Eastern Basitin and the Personal Advisor of Ambassador Keith Keiser. Before his position under Keith, he was the Messenger of the Master General Nickolai Alaric. Following Alaric's death, Lynn was royally mandated to serve as the newly appointed Ambassador Keith's 'Personal Advisor.'
Lynn first appears in Page 381 , to deliver a message from Alaric to Keith, instructing him to meet up with Alaric at the baths.
Nothing more is seen of Lynn, until Page 548 , once again to deliver to Keith a document from Alaric: this time A legally-binding edict declaring Keith Keiser's citizenship lawful. He doesn't appear again until partway through Keith's trial, where he dramatically introduces King Adelaide to the court. He, with the support of the King, proceeds to expose Alaric's legal loophole which, supported by Madelyn Adelaide's letter, dictates that Keith Keiser be appointed as a general.
Lynn is later seen watching over Keith in Page 663 , having boarded Eric's ship before it set sail. When Keith bumps into Trace and Lynn some pages later, the latter Basitin promptly disappears, seemingly into thin-air, with Keith questioning his abrupt disappearance.
Lynn is not seen again until Page 801, where he is revealed to be the physical host for Nickolai Alaric's spirit since his death. This was later revealed to be an April Fools joke, and is thus non-canon. (The page has been since removed from the archives.) Lynn appeared once again in chapter 17 in the ship giving Eric some tea, and Eric giving him a spare guest room to stay in.
Once reaching the mainland, Lynn disembarks as part of Keith's diplomatic entourage. He becomes caught up in battle with a trio of strangers- confronting them over the location of Natani. During this, he's exposed to pink gas released from a heart-shaped bottle by Sealeen.
The gas was supposed to have an aphrodisiac-like effect on all males of all races, allowing Sealeen to control them with ease. However, the potion proves to be ineffective due to his unique trait of being "Blind to both genders," a skill required for his occupation.
After explaining this, Lynn tells Sealeen that even though he knows her flirtatious overtures were not sincere, he still enjoyed being spoken to like this- something that the other members of his own society wouldn't do, as they would never view him in such a way. Ironically, his earnestness appears to endear Sealeen to him (admitting that she finds his ears "cute"). The two of them seem to strike up a rapport from this point on.
