Default Re: The Adoption Option- on Pern

I didn't really think of the reagent as an adoptive parent, but I suppose you do have a point. The bond between Lytol and Jaxom could be considered near father-son.

You also have a point about succession. I could see an unjust or incompetent Lord Holder being overthrown in a crisis, so I agree that there are special cases in which the bloodline isn't upheld for succession.
