Hereditary Kin
Sahra Wrote:I know this topic is a little bit controversial in the Kin community, but it's something that I find fascinating. I consider myself hereditary Fae, and my partner, Vantalus, is hereditary Draconic.

Is there anyone else here who has a side to their Kinship that is hereditary?

Is your Kinship pure hereditary?

If you have a Kintype that's different from what you've inherited, how do the two interact? Do they blend, or are the sides separate?

Looking forward to your input . . .

Re: Hereditary Kin
For me since it dose run in my family. i know its possbile for it to run ' in famies i will even say it could be more common in time. basicly for me my view is it dose run in familes.

and there is diffrences aside from being dragon there is also vampires i am the first along with my twin and then my twins. and a few other diffrences the family all i can say is it takes getting use to and i also like to think they blend well since one side is more domente then the other at times,.

hope that answers your qustion. <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->

Re: Hereditary Kin
As far as I know my therianthropy isn't hereditary, and I have no reason to believe it is. No signs of anything similar in my family, other than a general affinity for animals, which isn't uncommon anyway.

Re: Hereditary Kin
Yeah, I know this has been a controversial topic amongst kin, and I don't know why. It shouldn't be.

I'm a firm believer that 'kinness' can be passed down. Both of my parents are/were kin (daddy's dead); my mom believes herself to be a succubus and my dad was a faun. They both practiced the occult and held dearly to their beliefs; they shoved those said beliefs and occult themes down my throat as soon as I was able to understand. So, I'm torn. Half of me wants to believe that this magic, this otherness, was passed down directly through heriditary means. The other half say that because I aws introduced to the occult at such a young age, it provided me the opportunity to 'awaken' on my own because I had the tools.

Re: Hereditary Kin
I think that, on some level at least, kinship *can* be hereditary, it's just somewhat unlikely.

To me, there are two kinds of hereditary kin. #1, there are hereditary kin by way of bloodline, like people who believe they may be decedents of fae or any other such thing. #2, there are hereditary kin that believe their association with a particular kintype is something inherited from another family member who is/was originally kin.

There's also that #3 gray area, the families that, for whatever unexplained reason, are filled with a large number of kin without it really being tied to genetics.

Re: Hereditary Kin
i swear up and down that vampirism runs in my family. you would really have to know us to know what i'm talking about. it's really hard to explain. however i can say that my mother to the outsider does carry a lot of traits, even if she doesn't know what she is.

Re: Hereditary Kin
I believe that hereditary can - like other traits - be passed down. I am not sure I am kin, but I do know what I get is sort of from my father. However, I do know that he has not been my father in all of my past lives, only those where I am very connected to my spiritual side.

I've been toying with the idea of being hereditary Jinn for a few months now as some myths tell that they bred with humans.

I'm very connected to my own father as well and also believe my hereditary kin comes from his side. I also think hes been my father many many times. I'm toying with the idea that hes the reason for many of the times I've come back, besides my soul mate Vercing of course.
