Tyn is foremost a con-artist and an associate of the Ghostbloods. Shallan meets Tyn, along with her caravan, on her way to the Shattered Plains. She helps Shallan prepare a "love scam" on Adolin Kholin, not knowing that Shallan is, in fact, already betrothed to him.
Tyn is intent on her own interests ... always. She would've killed Shallan (without regret) given the opportunity.
Tyn often chose to have someone like Shallan - an acolyte, someone to nurture - under her wing. Shallan suspected that was at least partly because Tyn liked having someone around to impress.
Tyn is insistent in that the life she leads requires doing some harsh things.
Tyn was raised in Tu Bayla by parents who worked as interpreters.
During a spanreed conversation, Tyn discovered that Shallan is, in fact, Jasnah Kholin's ward, while Shallan discovered at the same time that it was Tyn who sent assassins after Jasnah. Between them, a fight ensued and Shallan wound up killing Tyn with her Shardblade.
