That route actually works a little if you use the Short Sun = Sol. But I've 
seen Marc take such awful thrashings trying to justify the presence of the 
Neighbors and inhumi on Urth. It's such an intractable obstacle that I'd 
probably want to try a lot of other options before going there.
Horn as Typhon works so nicely at textual and certain thematic levels. But 
I'm not prepared at this time to defend it as emphatically as I am that the 
Raja was the greenbuck, and Incus is a woman, yet many (most?) people don't 
find those things convincing either. So, there ya go.
