In Manhattan, the capital of the United Wastes, scientific research into the effects of Revellan’s Disease has resumed. Teams of biologists work around the clock to pick apart the strains of the pathogen that decimated the world. No expense is spared and no boundary is left uncrossed.
Through the application of several engineered strains of Revellan’s Disease the new government has created their own breed of hybrid to serve as their defenders. These Agents do not typically show any outward signs of mutation while gaining some of the superhuman traits of the traditionally infected.
With enhanced reflexes and martial arts training an Agent is an effective yet inexpensive asset to whatever squad they are assigned. The are perfectly capable of fighting Chimera without the use of the arms or armour a regular soldier would require.
Despite the widespread deployment of Agents the engineered modifications are still in their test phases. Rumours circulate about Agents whose mutations have continued to progress while in the field and it is said that they eventually lose their minds. Proof of these events has of course yet to surface.
