  • If Frank is Poseidon's great x 1000 grandson, wouldn't it be reasonable that the majority of 'humans' are actually legacies, and 100% humans are going extinct up to this point?

    The original Jason, the argonaut, is seen as a human after all and he's actually the grandson of Hermes.

    Scary thought really. Maybe Sally Jackson, Frederick Chase aren't humans, they're also part god, even if it's a hundred generations back.

    • You are probably right. If we consider different populations of humans, no population is really 100% 'pure'. Everyone is somewhat 'mixed'. Some people are less mixed, others are more mixed.

      The same argument could apply for demigods / legacies and ordinary humans as well.

    • I've actually thought about this before. Maybe clear-sight is a recessive gene, and that's why some mortals can see through the mist, it's an ability received from generations before.

    • I suppose people that can see through the mist have a stronger gene than other normal mortals. Meanwhile in others the gene is so weak that they would pass easily for normal human mortals. Then people like Sally or Frederick maybe have it a bit stronger than others. Then demigods are of course exactly half. Then people like Frank are a bit more than half, somewhere between half and three quarters God. So Frank is like 6/8 partly God, of course more than a normal demigod which would be 4/8 partly God.

    • Small correction Commander. Frank would have slightly more than half, like maybe 55% or so, of godly 'genes'. On the other hand, 6/8, that is 75%, would mean his close ancestors were themselves demigods, which is unlikely.

      Note that he receives 100% of his ancestor's powers. However, that is because of a god's blessing. If you think about the 'genes' themselves, they will surely be diluted, as Frank's ancestors went from Greece to Rome to Parthian territory to China to Canada.

    • Yes, most probably have some god genes in them. However, as VishwaUser said, the genes should be so diluted that they don't make a difference. Frank is an exception because his trait wasn't really genetic but a godly blessing upon his family. That's the reason he still has powers. Otherwise, everyone would have powers. I think I read somewhere that everyone alive is related to each other at least twice somewhere down the line.

      I agree.

    • I absolutely agree. Also, when Prometheus made humans, he gave them some of his divine power, so we're basically descended from Prometheus. Even otherwise, we're related through Gaea; I'll tell you how: When Deucalion and Pyrrha threw the bones of their mother (meaning Gaea's rocks) people came. So we could be related to Gaea.

    • In Harry Potter universe, muggle-borns are descendants of squibs marrying muggles, thus magic gene is a regressive gene. I guess the same can be said for clear sight!
