* Every Morganti weapon we've seen in the series has been a sword or dagger of some description. The meta reason for this, of course, is AuthorAppeal: Brust just likes swashbuckling fight scenes. In-Verse, is there a genuine restriction on how Morganti weapons can be designed? If they need to be blades so they can slice into flesh, could you have a Morganti battleaxe or pole arm? How about shuriken? Can piercing weapons like spears, or spiked weapons like some mace-heads, be Morganti? Or could a blunt weapon like a lepip be made Morganti, so you'd have the option of striking a light blow to render someone unconscious whose soul you ''don't'' want to destroy, yet can use more force to crush their skull with the same weapon if you want them DeaderThanDead? Vlad did mention that hitting someone with the ball on the hilt of the Morganti blade in ''Issola'' would hurt like a bitch, so presumably clonking someone with such a weapon doesn't ''have'' to eat their soul.

*** A relationship between Vlad and Sara wouldn't rouse concerns about half-breeds, because the official position of Dragaera's genetics experts is that they're different species and not fertile together. If anything, their hooking up would be scandalous because of implied bestiality overtones.

As for the real-phoenix-flies-over criterion, if a god can't arrange for one to put in an appearance for his child's benefit, how much of a "god" could he be?

*** From what I remember- from one of the 'Kaveraan Romance' books- House Phoenix '''requires''' any (potential) members to have an actual Phoenix appear in the sky during 'the hour' of their birth. Add in the general apparent revulsion towards half-breeds (which also shows up in one part of ''Hawk''), and some Major intervention is needed for the cycle to continue.

*** Personal FanWank, but: Each person in 'House Dragon' is assigned an "e'whatever" name at birth, as part of their name, with the generic default being one of their parents' "e'whatever" names. Unless the parents choose otherwise; either way, it happens when the baby/kid is named. '''Later on''', (presumably when the child is "old enough" to decide for him/herself), the name can be changed, with appropriate registration,on order to honor someone else. Morolaan[[note]]For example[[/note]] can change his "e'whatever" [last name] as much as he wants, as long as he fills out the paperwork/tells the proper authorities each time. (And the name ''seems'' to make some sort of [In Universe] sense.) - Curled Up With Dakka
