** This seems to be an orc thing in the Warcraft universe; while not nearly every orc declares their parentage, enough do that it sunds like a cultural thing. Examples include "Durotan, son of Garad", "Draka, daughter of Kelkar", and "Aggra, daughter of Ryal". Also, Garrosh originally bore the title "Son of Hellscream" to let players know he was the progeny of Grom Hellscream.

** It's an unusual example - she hates her blood father and everything he stood for - but when Leia Organa Solo is almost kidnapped by a [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Noghri Noghri]] commando, he is able to smell her bloodline and calls her the ''Mal'ary'ush'', the daughter of the savior. Of course, he doesn't mean Bail Organa. After their world was poisoned, Darth Vader showed up, created peace among the clans, had droids sent down to purify some of the soil, and got them into a deep debt to the Empire. Leia ends up accepting this and even visiting the ruined Noghri homeworld to attempt to coax them away from the Empire, and when she finds the proof that they do not in fact owe the Empire for their continued existence, she introduces herself to the Imperial-loyal ruling body as Darth Vader's daughter. When they attempt to capture her, in accordance to their new overlord's commands, she holds and ignites her lightsaber using the Force, finally getting their full attention.
--> '''Leia''': "I am not merely the daughter of Lord Vader. I am the ''Mal'ary'ush'': heir to his authority and his power. I have come through many dangers to reveal the treachery that has been done to the Noghri people."
** It is highly interesting btw that Vader's ''daughter'' is considered his 'heir' not his son. Leia remains the ''Mal'ary'ush'' even after the Noghri know about Luke.
** In the third book of the trilogy the Noghri greet Luke as the "Son of Vader".
*** Actually becomes a plot point, when Mara asks who this "Son of Vader" the Noghri are expecting show up and save them is. When she finds out it's Luke. . .
* In the ''{{Redwall}}'' series, Martin the Warrior announces himself as "Martin, son of Luke" multiple times in his eponymous book. Also spoken by Martin at least once in the books Mossflower, and The Legend of Luke.
** It should be noted that at first, he introduces himself as "Martin, son of Luke the Warrior". It isn't until later that he introduces himself as "Martin the Warrior, son of Luke".
