Tian-Liao Lin (林天遼 Lín Tiānliáo) or Liao is the main character of Nekojishi and Nekojishi: Lin & Partners and a major character in the series. He is a young homosexual who is fond of beast-men and has interests in dancing. His hometown is somewhere in the south of Taiwan.
Liao’s appearance is very ambiguous, probably because he’s supposed to resemble the player so he doesn’t have a fixed one. In Nekojishi, his eyes are never shown even in full-view portraits of himself; therefore, his face remains a complete mystery. All that is known about him is his short height and slightly muscular build he acquires from dancing.
