Here's some stranger ideas: a person might contract the Pathogen after being supposedly abducted by aliens, being used in government/corporate experiments, taking experimental drugs, being exposed to some kind of weird radiation from the television or radio, watching a "cursed" video tape/dvd/viral video, or visiting a certain website/eating at a street vendor that vanishes by the second visit.
I don't really know how to deal with the neoteny splat. You could just drop the idea of age regression period, since it isn't really a disease (rapid aging is, but doesn't make for good P Cs
). The Neonate wing should be revised to be more along the lines of a technophile transhumanism group (what would a good new name be? How about just Techno(s)? if Cybersix can use that word to refer to genetic aberrations, so can we), contrasted with the more "traditional" social darwinist Jagda.
What other symptoms are possible? They're all based on categories, right? All characters favor the Mutation subversion, while Vector and Symptom each grant an additional favored subversion. Symmetrical.
But there's should be a explanation for what happens if infected try to have children. Zombie babies, chimeras, chronically ill individuals who begin manifesting bizarre physical features during puberty, stuff like that.
Annunaki and Cambions also need to be more clearly distinguished from each other. Move the religious elements from Cambions and into the Annunaki. Make Cambions more "in the moment" and agnostic/atheistic, drunk on their power. Jagda should be made more "social" and "mental," possibly some sort of modern "nobility?" Jagda could separated into conservative and orthodox, conservative are ambivalent/friendly towards uninfected, while orthodox look down on them. Protectors and Stemmers are the most "human."
