* The magic that gives [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Vir Requis]] their [[{{Shapeshifter}} power]] in the ''Literature/DragonsOfRequiem'' series seems very randomly hit or miss. Vir Requis can be born of non-Vir Requis and vis versa. The backstory for the BigBad of the first trilogy written (though not chronologically first), ''Song of Dragons'', is the eldest son of the king and queen born without the magic. He's treated like absolute dirt, hidden from sight, and passed over for the thrown. As a result he: rapes his brother's wife, stages a coup, kills the king, steals a magic amulet, kidnaps one of his brother's daughters, and returns years later with an army that hunts the Vir Requis to the brink of extinction.
