Sin-Eater (Aberrant RPG)


(Meena Harjapatan)


Aberrant was a tabletop RPG published by White Wolf. It was part of a larger universe with three games retracing the emergence of superhuman on Earth, from the early XXth century to the far future. Aberrant itself is set 10 years into the future.

The setting featured superhuman in a realistic manner, without Golden Age  and Silver Age  comic book conventions. Super-powers had an unified source and significant costs, and the factions were based on credible politics and the reaction of ordinary people to superhumans.

Powers and Abilities

Sin-Eater has limited control of others’ forms and “quantum” (the energy that provides Novas with metahuman abilities). Baseline (non-powered) opponents can be toyed with like clay, but Nova opponents fear her because of her control over the stuff that makes them novas.

She can absorb quantum and taint and reshape a nova’s body, to the point of erasing physical and mental aberration. Or channel it into him to cause drastic (and possibly deadly) increases in such problems. These effects are only temporary.

Despite her power level, Sin-Eater has yet to show any outward signs of taint. Unlike other Novas, she may be immune to it.


Sin-Eater combines her anger at the world both over the degradation she was forced to endure (as an untouchable in India) and over attitudes towards novas. She responds to the various forms of prejudice she has faced by manipulating people through both her nova powers and the shallow, superficial desires of those who seek her help in “overcoming” taint.

She charges a high fee for her services while simultaneously analyzing clients for potential and recruiting those who actually have the strength of character to contribute to the Teragen.



Meena was an untouchable in Mumbai until her eruption in 2004. By then, the city had risen to unprecedented heights of glamour. Some of the pretty-boy stars decided Meena was fair game for their sexual appetites.

With the second of three rapists on top of her and the filth of the city beneath her, she erupted. Suddenly she course with dark power and sent it flowing into her assailants. She watched as they screamed and pleaded, while their bodies warped into forms so monstrous that their organs burst.

Meena rapidly found a niche for herself in the city of stars. Taint was unacceptable for media darlings and she began absorbing excess taint for a very high price. She could never permanently cure the starlets of their aberrations, but that only guaranteed they would come back.

In 2005, after the Teragen went public, she met with Raoul Orzaiz and entered the movement. She saw in it a place where novas understood taint instead of fearing it.

She still operates her “Purity Clinic” in Bombay (and consults with other rich novas around the world), despite rumors that she is a Terat. She searches her base of shallow clients for the few who have the backbone to join the movement.


“Taint is so misunderstood. A shame really. People should take more time to appreciate it, to wonder at its glory. Damn the puritans and religious freaks who flooded our heads with backward notions that it’s wrong to feel, to give into the fundamental needs of the body. Even today, in these progressive times, it is still “wrong” to indulge. Baselines are just weak and cognitively challenged.”


Sin-Eater is an attractive Indian woman somewhere between the ages of 25 and 32.
