Jie Lin was originally from Báng-kah khu, Taiwan where she met her childhood love, Bolin Cho at the Bangka Lungshan Temple following the loss of her mother. She was largely unaware of the true origins of her family duty to hunt demons but she suspected that it stemmed back several generations. A main part of her research was trying to trace their magickal lineage.
There were some suspicions that her family line was tied to Formosan ancestry but nothing she could substantiate in the wake of World War 2. Following her marriage to Bolin, she attempted to set aside the life of a demon hunter but found herself hunted. Unable to turn away from a life of fighting the demonic, she leaned fully into it as they sought an explanation for the duty and her family’s power.
She was fluent in several dialects of Chinese, Japanese, and English. She was literate in an untold number of languages that she tried to impart to Caitlin at a young age.
