IS LIN IN SPIRITED AWAY NOT HUMAN ? IF NOT, WHAT KIND OF CREATURE IS SHE ?
Yes, she isn’t a human. She is a transformed spirit of a Byakko, a white fox that brings people happiness. In short way, she is a white fox spirit.

However, this was not mentioned anywhere else, and is likely to be only an early concept.
