"Limn" means to draw or to paint. It is also used figuratively in the sense of "drawing a picture" of a situation or condition.
The picture limned by the police made it look like almost everyone named was guilty.

i read this word in The Stranger yesterday. I have never seen it before.
I'm not clear on it's meaning.
An author cam LIMN OUT a character in a story. I think this means to layer on aspects of personality and habits.
