Lin Dong is the main protagonist of Wu Dong Qian Kun.
Lin Dong is a smart person who is kind to who he sees as friends. However he is ruthless towards the ones he sees as enemies. He is not afraid to take risks and challenge strong opponents if they did him wrong. Early in the series he was unskilled and was bullied a lot by Lin Shan. However he was diligent in his training and didn't lose faith when encountering a setback. He challenged Lin Shan multiple times just to see his progress.
He never travelled more than 100 miles(160.934 km) from Qingyang Town.
He watched the fight between his father and Lin Langtian.
In the Ice Spirit Tribe side story and the Novel The Great Ruler he went to the Great Thousand World. The Martial Ancestor challenged the Ice Spirit Tribe and established the Martial Realm along with his wives and children that soared into one of the supreme forces in the Great Thousand World.
- Ling Qingzhu (Wife in The Great Ruler, and mother of his daughter)

- Lin Shan (former): He bullied Lin Dong after Lin Dong's father was crippled by Lin Langtian.
- Lin Langtian: He crippled Lin Dong's father in the Ten-Year Clan Gathering of the Lin Clan. Lin Xiao was defeated in one move. After his defeat, Lin Langtian without mercy use Yuan force to ravage the insides of Lin Xiao's body. Lin Dong witnessed this scene (Even though he never travelled more than 160.934 km from Qingyang Town before the start of the novel, but the author seems to have forgotten this, a common theme in the novel).
- Lin Hong (former): Lin Dong has a strained relationship with Lin Hong. He is friendly on the surface. However he is more fiendish than Lin Shan. He is known as the tyrant within the younger generation in the Lin Family. The hatred deepened as Lin Hong wanted to engage to Qing Tan.

[Note: Lin Dong often killed numerous unidentified people, so the actual amount of people he killed far exceeds that which is shown on this list, so if you are worried that Lin Dong is some sort of emotionally weak-hearted, pathetic idiot that has an emotional breakdown and ethical dilemma every two chapters, don't be. I'm pretty sure he killed a few people for funsies! Enjoy!]
