Walin is a prisoner at the Pits of Hathsin on Scadrial. Like most prisoners in the Pits he has many long cuts on his arms.[1]


Walin was sent to the Pits as punishment for trying to steal food from his plantation master.[1]

He was barely fed at the Pits, his fingers kept searching for geodes instinctively and he was too tired to care about entering the mists or getting beaten. Walin usually climbed up to the surface to sleep, but as he was an older man, he had to look out for younger, stronger men who might attack him to steal his atium geode. He wasn't sure if such a life was better than being dead.[1]

Walin was eventually freed by Kelsier, who was about to destroy the mines, just after he managed to find an atium geode the final day of the week. Although he first thought that Kelsier wanted to steal his geode, after being encouraged by Kelsier, Walin left the Pits to sell the atium to secure his freedom.[1]
