Joan Aiken (pronounced eye-ken) is one of the leading genetic scientists in her
field and has always had a special interest in unlocking the full potential of
the human mind. Needless to say she eventually achieves this goal and is considered
by many to be the mother of the Psionic revolution. Aiken pioneered the Psionic
Booster Serum which was administered to humans in-utero to unlock the full potential
of their minds. She has had contact with both Cain and Abel since they were young
children attending the Aiken School for the gifted.
