Lynn is from Sweden and lover of all things living. As a child, his parents used to give him a flower when he was upset, which seemed to calm him.

When he was grown up, he had grown so sick and tired of being chased after by sailors calling him a unicorn fish, he developed an organized system of naming plants and animals and minerals that is still used today.

LYNN is a benevolent creature, who loves and respects all life on earth. He will appreciate you for who you are, where you are from, for your kingdom, your phylum, your class, order and family but is extremely allergic to disorder and sloppiness and will call you on it.
