An Aberration is a status received if the person has committed an Infraction. They are not seen as full Citizens and don't get the privileges of being Matched, possessing an artifact, or having tablets. If a parent commits an Infraction, then their children become Aberrations as well. If a child commits an Infraction, the child alone becomes an Aberration. Aberrations are usually put to work in the Disposal Department where there are poisons and the life expectancy is low. Aberrations are not thought of as dangerous as Anomalies, but they do not have full citizenship. Many Aberrations are sent to the Outer Provinces to work in decoy villages. Most Aberrations do not live to be eighty like full citizens do.
