Ser Lepus Posted November 6, 2014 Share Posted November 6, 2014 It could also happen that being a dragonrider isn't dependant on the percentage of Targaryen/dragonrider blood. It could be like a gene. You get it from a dragonrider parent, or not, 50 % chance of getting it (I'm not speaking about a real gene, but about something that is passed down the same way) and no middle ground between having it or not. If being a dragonrider works like a gene, and dragonriders didn't intermarry with other dragonriders, you have a 50 % of getting it from a dragonrider parent.But if both parents are dragonriders, you get a 75 % chance.But if dad or mom were lucky and got dragonrider "genes" from both sides, they have a 100 % chance of passing them down, So a person with a remote dragonrider ancestor would have as low chance of being a dragonrider himself/herself, but it would exist. Most Targaryens from old times would have dragonrider "genes" from both sides, and they practiced incest to make sure it remained that way. And again: I'm not speaking of real genes, I'm speaking of a quality that is inherited the same way as genes do. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
