Shin is a resident of Madra. When the people of Champa attack the town and free Briggs from jail, his girlfriend is hurt. As a result, when Piers is accused of being a Champan and put in the jail, Shin is very aggressive toward him in trying to get him to tell the truth. Piers cools him down by freezing a water puddle beneath his feet into an ice pillar, and he is freaked out by what just happened, running out of the jail screaming. Later he goes into denial and states that it never even happened.
