Cut due to not being an example: there's very little to suggest player's abilities are that dependant on genetics, and noone has a direct line of descent to anyone; it's all genetic engineery- timey- dimensional stuff.
- Averted in Homestuck. Players' abilities depend on genetics but come from both of their ectobiological parents for humans (i.e., John's aspect (Breath) is related both to Jake's (Hope) and Jane's (Life)) and from their (same-sex) Ancestor for trolls, (i.e. Kankri / The Sufferer for Karkat, Porrim / The Dolorosa for Kanaya).
