“No! Let me fight. With Princess Nyna’s blessing, and the tome my father left me, I can wield Aura magic. Let me use it to avenge him. I want to destroy Gharnef myself!”
—Linde, during her recruitment scene in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon
Linde is the daughter of Miloah, one of Gotoh's best students along with Gharnef, thus enabling her to use the powerful Aura spell. She is targeted by Gharnef's men, so she disguises herself as a boy, but in turn, she is captured and brought to a slave market. Marth frees Linde, and she decides to join him to fight and avenge her murdered father. She later moves to Pales and becomes Nyna's apprentice and most trusted individual.
When Hardin falls into madness, Nyna entrusts the Fire Emblem to Linde, who joins up with Marth's army. She later returns to Pales, and seems to have found an idol. Her ending hints that she tries to make herself more beautiful, possibly for the said idol.
While a very high-ranking noblewoman, Linde is not the type to sit around and watch the world burn around her, as though somewhat used to her privileges, she endures many hardships that would break most people by adapting to the situation.
The loss of her father deeply affects her in both good and bad ways, since she strongly desires revenge, but made her relate with those who lost family more easily.
It is hinted that Linde might have an crush for Merric, as seen in her supports with him in New Mystery of the Emblem, but she dismisses it when seeing his feelings for Elice.

In Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light and its remakes, Linde is very difficult to train, because she joins so late in the game. Her stats make her a pretty good magic unit in Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light and Book 1 of Mystery of The Emblem, but in Shadow Dragon, Linde's stats are not as balanced as others, but she can become a very powerful unit. She can use Aura, which boosts her usefulness. But, like Merric, Linde has low defense in all versions of Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, and should work with archers, snipers, or some sort of guard. Her problem with HP can be solved with a Seraph Robe. If trained well, and stat-boosted in the right stats, she will make a good unit.
In Book 2 of Mystery of the Emblem and its remake, Linde joins very early unlike last time in Chapter 11 of the last game (Chapter 9 of Book 1). She joins early at the beginning of Chapter 3 of Book 2, giving her a better opportunity to get trained. Linde still has low defense, but her high speed and luck compensates that fatal flaw, however, Mystery of The Emblem only has stat caps of 20 unlike its remake. It is wise to use starsphere shards to boost her growth rates in defense or have her attack from behind your other units. Even at base, Linde immediately contributes by being able to deal the most damage to the chapter 3 dracoknights due to her targeting magic defense instead of defense. With a couple levelups, her offense will even match the likes of Palla and Sirius. In Anri's way, Linde with the shaver or resire tome is the most efficient way to deal with wyverns and dragons since your other mounted units have to dismount in order to use effective weaponry. And once she promotes, she will be able to use almost every nonexclusive staff in the game thanks to her high weapon level growth. Overall, she is one of the most powerful units in book 2 along with Palla, Sirius, and Ogma.
