Dr. 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.
