Personality: Linden is a very calm easy going rat that genuinely loves helping others. He tends to be a bit of a bore when you get him on the subject of plants, however he is very easy to talk to. Mostly due to the fact that he listens and remembers your woes and thrills and often asks for updates. One major short coming of his is that he is extremely gullible and is a bit of an enabler. If someone has wronged him, even blatantly he will make excuses for them and keep giving them a second chance. He dislikes hostility and will avoid any confrontation if he can, unless it comes to a rat's health and well being.
History: Lin was in a rather serious accident where his back left leg got caught in one of the tractor's gears. Everyone thought he would lose the leg, and possibly his life to infection. But this young rat, an apprentice to the head medic came in and manged to not only salvage the leg, but make it usable again. The miracle enraptured Lin, and he soon found himself apprenticing under this new head medic. Under his wing Lin learned many new ways of treating patients and most importantly a wide variety of plants and their various uses. This sparked a new love and possibly even a slight obsession with Lin. He soon found himself branching away from his mentor to more herbal remedies. No one's quiet sure why but the head Medic one day disappeared, leaving his position needing replacing. With Lin studying under him the role naturally fell to him to fill, and he's been head medic ever since.
RP Example: It was surreal. Lin kept expecting to turn around and see that o'l goat messing around with his studies. Kept expecting to hear holler about some sort of item needing to be fetched. His muffled grunts and chirps as he worked out some new problem. But there was nothing. Just an empty void. It was peaceful. A smile bloomed across his face as he turned and took it all in. He was the boss now. This was his medicine den. A sort of flutter rapped against his chest as he started to rearrange the room more to his own tastes.
