Lina is first seen in the second volume of ''Sadness Prayer'', after the death of [[Komaki Asako]]. She and her companions are seen attacking one of [[Sasa Yuuki]]'s servant witches.

The group's backstory is also revealed as they are chasing down Sasa for feeding humans to her Witches and want to bring her to justice not only for that, but to also avenge their fallen friend Futaba who died in one of their many confrontations, and have now tracked her down in [[Mitakihara]].

She is also shown to be troubled for being to blame for anything bad that happens to others such as with the deaths of her older sister and teammates.

Story

Backstory

When Lina was younger, she once had a sister named Mana (マナ) who died of unknown causes to protect her. Her mother was distraught by this and would constantly sit at the table with Mana's picture and grieve for her, ignoring Lina and even mistaking her for her older sister on occasion, saying it's her fault that Mana died. Eventually Lina met Kyubey and made her wish to erase Mana from her mother's memories. Some time after that she formed a group with Miyako, Mai, Mio and Futaba where they fought against Sasa Yuuki to protect Kazamino City from her and her Witches.

During Sadness Prayer

Lina first appears fighting against Sasa with her teammates, though they are forced to flee when Sasa tricks them with a fake soul gem and calls for help from random bystanders mistaking them for muggers. She later appears again with her team when they discover Mio's body where Lina blames herself for not taking Mio's hatred towards Sasa into account and states they must put a stop to Sasa as quickly as possible. The group's backstory is also revealed as they are chasing down Sasa for feeding humans to her Witches and want to bring her to justice not only for that, but to also avenge their fallen friend Futaba who died in one of their many confrontations, and have now tracked her down in Mitakihara. Her group is later confronted by a policewoman in the city where they learn about the recent murders of two girls before meeting up at their hotel room to hunt for Sasa.

Lina and her group discuss the killings, ruling out a Witch and Sasa as the former seems too unusual and the latter was in Kazamino with them at the time it happened. She concludes that there could be someone as frightening as Sasa in the city. They later meet up with Kyubey who gives them more info on the murder being a "black magical girl" and decide to regroup and plan out their next move. Lina notes how close this girl's ethics are to Sasa's and thinks she is trying to make an alliance with them. However they are interrupted by the arrival of Kirika who is later joined by Sasa and Oriko Mikuni. While Mai battles Kirika and Miyako confronts Oriko, Lina takes on Sasa and manages to take down her servant Witch, leaving her defenseless but also herself weakened and begins physically attacking her. After Mai supposedly kills Kirika, she joins up with Lina and offers to take Sasa out for her as her soul gem is nearly covered in impurities. Despite begging for mercy, Lina and Mai refuse to let Sasa go and Mai prepares to kill her before being stopped by Oriko and Miyako. Having been manipulated by Oriko, Miyako calls out Lina's behavior and blames her for the deaths of Mio and Futaba. As Lina flashes back to her mother blaming her for her sister's death, she wonders why everyone is attacking her before becoming a Witch. She then proceeds to kill Miyako before being taken down by Mai, Sasa and Oriko.
