Kwan Yin ("She Who Hears the Prayers of the World") was originally the mother goddess of China, who proved so popular she was adopted into the Buddhist pantheon as a bodhisattva (much like the goddess Bride was made a saint). A bodhisattva is a person who has attained enlightenment but chooses to forgo Nirvana and remain in the world to help others attain enlightenment. Kwan Yin's specialty is compassion, and She is known as the Goddess of Mercy.
