SPOILER AHEAD! Yinlin's Companion Story - Solitary Path Quest

You will first meet Yinlin via her companion story, also called the Solitary Path quest. In this quest, Yinlin is introduced as an undercover Patroller who's on a mission to investigate the Seance Society. The Seance Society is a group of people who have lost their loved ones and given realistic puppets as a replacement by the Master Dollmaker. Rover, the main character, follows Yinlin around to discover more information about the puppets and the Master Dollmaker.

But soon after Rover followed Yinlin into an isolated safe house, Yinlin electrocutes and knocks her out - revealing that she was actually working for the Seance Society. Rover was brought to the Master Dollmaker who realized her powerful potential and wanted to use her for his ultimate project.

Throughout the final part of the quest, Yinlin revealed that she was indeed working for the Master Dollmaker until she realized he has an ultimate motive and was working with an extremist evil troupe, Fractidus. Realizing the dire situation, Yinlin secretly worked with Rover to take down Master Dollmaker in his doll factory.
