* In ''FanFic/TheVow'', Lord Chang of the Shēnghuó Province is determined to have his only child Lianne married off so that she would give him [[HeirClubForMen a grandson who'd continue the legacy he has built for his family]] to the point of obsession. While he complies with his wife's refusal to put Lianne into an ArrangedMarriage, he foists numerous suitors on her. After she humiliates one of the more lewd suitors and [[CallingTheOldManOut calls her father off]], he sends her to Gongmen City to be courted by [[WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2 Lord Shen]], thus starting the plot. [[spoiler:When thirty years later Lianne becomes expectant with Shen's child, the gravely ill Chang is [[SoProudOfYou happy enough for her]] to care anymore about the child's gender or the fact that the father is the peacock he hates and allows himself to die contently after giving blessings for his daughter and grandchild.]]

** General Tagon once pointed out that since they have Kaff's DNA on file, technically he doesn't need him around to get grandchildren. He hasn't gotten quite that desperate yet, though.
