Moved this example here.
It's extremely long, filled with Conversation In The Main Page, and excessive detail. It needs to be trimmed down to something more concise, and in a way that it doesn't seem to be arguing with itself.
Strictly speaking, Tiffany Aching is only the granddaughter of a witch because she's decided she is. "Granny Aching was going to be a witch if Tiffany had to argue all day." There's plenty references in the books to Granny Aching fulfilling the social-work and headology aspects of witchcraft for the Chalk, but as far as I recall, nothing about her having actual magic.
I changed this part a bit: So, witchcraft has become more of a matter of Superpowerful Genetics (which, ironically, is the closer to what the Azande of Africa believe, where it is an inherited organ that allows potentially unconscious use, often located near the liver).
Besides clearing up the wording, I dropped the word "ironic", because it wasn't clear in context just what is ironic about this.
From the Nanoha example: "It probably wasn't due to her age, because there were martial artists studying in the family school who weren't much older."
Nah, it's because everyone was so freaking scared of her unleashing her mad White Devil powers of Massive Ordnance Friendship onto their sorry asses, they decided against ever training her in the arts of magic. At least, they didn't exile her, like Caro's tribe did...
