In the core series games
An unknown amount of time before the events of the game, she competed with Irida to become leader of the Pearl Clan, but ended up losing to her. Instead, Palina was assigned as the warden of the noble Arcanine that lived on Firespit Island in the Cobalt Coastlands. Some time after she became warden, the noble Arcanine died at sea while trying to save his Growlithe pup from drowning. Palina herself was involved in the incident, though she was saved by Iscan of the Diamond Clan and his Basculegion. After the incident, she was tasked with raising the son of the previous Lord to be the next noble for the Pearl Clan. She ultimately decided against that idea, instead letting Growlithe choose to live his life as he pleased after his traumatic experience. This decision caused many within her clan to have doubts about her shirking her duties as warden.
The player first meets Palina at the top of Veilstone Cape at the grave of the late noble Arcanine. Palina, with the help of Iscan, assist the player in their investigation of the strange happenings on Firespit Island. The group is later ambushed by the Miss Fortune sisters and witness another Growlithe under Palina's care get kidnapped to Firespit Island. After arriving on Firepit Island with the player and Iscan, she witnesses the son of the late noble Arcanine evolve when defending the kidnapped Growlithe. The newly-evolved Arcanine is struck by lightning from a space-time rift and enters a frenzied state much to the dismay of Palina. Once the player has quelled Arcanine's frenzy with balms, Palina thanks the player and vows to watch over the new Lord Arcanine as his warden.
She has known Diamond Clan warden Iscan since they were children after Iscan saved her with Basculegion, and the two have formed a romantic relationship in secret.
Like most members of the Pearl Clan, Palina does not keep her Pokémon partner in a Poké Ball.
