I'm not afraid of you or your evil kind!
— Mrs. Lincoln telling off the Duchannes family, Beautiful Creatures

Martha Lincoln is Link's overbearing mother who has a very tight leash on him.


Martha Lincoln made many attempts to get Lena Duchannes expelled from school for just about any reason,[1] but it soon turned out she was actually possessed by Sarafine Duchannes; who had been using her body as a disguise. She is head of the DAR and often supported Emily Asher and Savannah Snow's "help" groups to "help" the school, when really they were out to mock and bully Lena.


Martha Lincoln is shown, while not under possession, to be a very strict and religious woman. She often has Link on a tight and very short leash as shown his anxiety when it comes to his house rules. However, she is shown to love Link very much often encouraging him despite her strictness when it comes to the outside world. She also is known to work to have "books banned off of shelves" or attempting to do whatever she feels needs to be done to her liking.
