General Chin is a Zhongese general and General Teng's closest aide. He appears in Meilin's chapter in Wild Born, beckoning her to her Nectar Ceremony and telling her that the city of Shar Liwao has fallen. Later, while their city is under attack, Chin helps hold off the Conquerors alongside Teng and Sheyu. In Blood Ties, Chin appears again, where he leads Meilin back to where Conor, Rollan, and Abeke are.
- "Chin" is a Chinese variant of "Jin", meaning "gold, wealth, money", "embroidered, fine" or "ferry".
