Seeing Gaol die horribly before his very eyes, Lini took his sword into the Eluut Sands to await the one worthy to wield it.
Lini has a 1-in-5 chance of joining the clan after completion of a mission where "The Hero Gaol" is equipped. The Hero Gaol is a reward for "#062 Oasis Frogs", which itself is unlocked after "#005 Twisted Flow", but can only be completed after "#006 Antilaws" due to an automatic engagement in Cadoan.
Like all secret characters, Lini joins four levels above the average of the entire clan. Lini is recruited as a Mog Knight, and as a bonus he has two abilities already mastered: Mog Guard and Ultima Charge.
Mog Knight command. Use momentum to deal damage.
|Mog Guard||Raise Defense and Resistance for one turn.|
|Ultima Charge||Triple Damage Attack.||60|
Lini was the name of the sidekick of Gaol, a legendary hero on which Missions #032 through #035 were based. The special recruit could either be a moogle named after the original Lini, or, based on what Mission "#036 Twin Swords" states, could be the original Lini returned from the dead.
In Sudanese, "Lini" means "Earthquake".
