** Okay, let's go over this one more time. The emperors (Alessian, Reman or Septim) being dragonborn has nothing to do with genealogy, and even less to do with genetics. You get to be dragonborn through providence, that is "because Akatosh says so". Alessia formed the covenant that made her dragonborn. Only those who renewed the covenant, either by relighting the dragonfires or turning into a golden dragon god, were dragonborn emperors. Potema was never empress, thus never dragonborn.

** Potema was not directly part of Tiber Septim's line. She was the descendant of his brother, Agnorith. Since she wasn't a direct descendant of Tiber Septim, she didn't inherit the Dragonborn bloodline. She was technically part of the succession and did have royal blood as a descendant of the Septim family, but not being directly descended from Tiber Septim himself, she doesn't benefit from the covenant with Akatosh. In addition, the dragon blood is generally passed down to the legitimate rulers who possess the Amulet of Kings. Since Potema never had the Amulet, she wouldn't have gained the covenant with Akatosh either.

[[folder:Potema's soul]]
* Isn't Potema a Dragonborn? The lore was pretty clear that all members of the Septim bloodline were Dragonborn, from Talos all the way down to Martin. It doesn't make much since that her soul isn't absorbed when she's defeated in the catacombs.

* Soul gems are mined. They can be recovered from Geode Veins in Blackreach, and presumably through regular mines elsewhere. They can also be created directly in the Soul Cairn, presumably for use by necromancers. As for people being okay with it, they clearly are, considering how blase everyone is about enchanting equipment with souls; DeliberateValuesDissonane and all that. Serana notes that ''usually'' only black soul gem souls go to the Soul Cairn; white souls just become energy, unless its some weird circumstance like Arvak.

* The [[AnimalWrongsGroup idea that animals can be considered people]], is a extremely new concept.

*** Well, Ulfric trained with them, and he's pretty big on Talos. The Greybeards aren't totally isolated from everything and everyone, they're just not very chatty.

*** There's also the Doylist answer: that you can potentially complete the entire civil war quest before doing "Diplomatic Immunity", the part of the main plot that requires you to make small talk at Elenwen's party. After that, well...

** I would think that once the Dovahkiin understood what 'Ro' meant, he/she could simply apply it to another shout if he/she knew it could work. But no, I don't think he/she would have to relearn the word.[[/folder]]

** As I understand it, they just fought a war to free themselves from the Empire, so their resources are depleted. If they attack the Emperor or the Thalmor now, they'll be risking an all-out war against the full brunt of the Empire + the Thalmor, which is something they can't afford. Not sure why they don't wipe out the Thalmor embassy, but I can imagine they let the Emperor stay, though they gritted their teeth the whole time.

**** In theory, you could have at least ''five'' defenders at your homestead at once (this troper is currently unsure if Barbas the talking dog stays at your homestead if you decide to keep him): the spouse (if they're also a capable fighter, such as Lydia), the housecarl assigned to you who will stay at the homestead if they're not following you, your steward, a follower who can't stay at the homestead permanently due to not being available for marriage or stewardship, and of course the Dragonborn themselves. [[UpToEleven And that's not counting familiars, wild beasts recruited with the Animal Allegiance shout, and Odahviing.]] The only ones who ''can't'' conceivably defend your homestead are adopted children. Considering that just you can your one follower can practically rip through a dragon like paper by the time you can even ''get'' a homestead, at least ''five'' defenders with proper equipment will make short work of simple bandits.
