Was this perhaps a translation error?

The other 3 characters have descriptive names but unless I'm missing some provocative flavor text, she seems to be a pop Singer.

Anyone know for sure?

I couldn't say for sure, but I suspect it's just a typo -- depending, of course, on the designer's opinion of pop singers.

It was that way in playtesting, and they were aware of it. I think it was just a neat word. Nothing about it in the rulebook?

Hey Bill,

No translation error, just a cool name. It seemed to work for a future pop star.

In Shadowrun, a SIN (Social Identification Number) is the equivalent of today's Social Security Number (SSN). I've seen the word appear in several cyberpunk books, and I've seen SINner refer both to someone who has a number (and therefore can be tracked by the Govt.) and to people who do not (and that live under the radar).
