Relationships

Linus generally considers himself an outcast of the town. He does not trust people, and doesn't seem to consider anyone in town his friend, as to the fact that most people don't treat him well. During Events, he can usually be found alone and out of the way. At one point, Linus tells the player that his tent has been destroyed before. Robin mentions that she doesn't mind him living behind their house, as long as he doesn't bother them.
