There comes a large problem with the theory that Crono is a result of an illegitimate love child with the Queen and Cyrus: Both Crono and Princess Nadia are descendants of the same royal bloodline. Any children that would come from this union would be slightly out of incest, (regardless of intent or not).

I suppose that goes right along with medieval times stereotypes of royals inbreeding though.

If it's just Leene who is the common ancestor, then there would be 400 years worth of generations to dilute the blood (around 13, if we consider the numeral designations of the Guardia kings of both eras) enough that it wouldn't matter.

Heck, the probabilities of any incest-related issues are gone as soon as it's between second cousins. Even with first cousins it is a very negligible rise, that the taboo (where it exists) is more social than genetical.

So yeah, no issues there.

This is so interesting! Crono would be of royal blood and not even realize it! Hmmmm...  :o

True. Even if it's diluted as AcaciaSgt mentioned, it would still be sort of icky from a story perspective.

I remember when, in the television series Dexter, it was revealed that Deb and Dexter (two siblings) weren't actually related and Deb was adopted. The show then made them a couple and I'm pretty sure 99% of the fans thought it was super weird, especially having known them as siblings for half a dozen seasons.

Regardless, yeah, Cyrus and Leene don't have to have a love child. That was just a plot thread that was considered for the defunct fangame, and even then Crono never factored into the Cyrus bloodline.

I only got two seasons into Dexter, and decided to stop after being spoilered to the (rather stupid, in my opinion) ending. But they made Deb and him a couple too?? :o

Apparently. I only watched half a season and couldn't get into it. It was a season with John Lithgow (who I love) as the villain.

I heard the first season, maybe two, are tops. And it was a solid downhill slope from there.

But yes, eventually Dexter and Deb got together and it about broke the internet with it's cringe-worthiness. I think they broke them up pretty quickly due to fan backlash.

I suppose that's proof the Westermack Effect applies not only to the subjects in question, but also the witnesses.  :lol:

Anyway, hmm, wouldn't know if it would've really been icky story-wise, but well, that's probably because I do think 400 years is way more than enough time to separate relations. I'd think that happens in real life more often that one may think...

Completely off topic but will set the record straight, because I actually enjoyed that show. *spoiler alert* lol
Dexter was the adopted son, because Their Dad, Harry, a cop, found him abandoned and surrounded by blood. Deb started having mental health issues and later found out she had latent romantic feeling towards Dexter. Dexter never reciprocated these feeelings though. She dies in the end anyways.

The mixup might be where the actors who played Dex and Deb actually got together in real life and were temporarily married.

Setting the record straight! Thanks for keeping me honest. I only saw the season with the Trinity Killer, so my over-encompassing lore is minimal.
