This must be why Orcs are so single minded nowadays. Lack of genetic diversity, skewed against males unfortunately

No hate to your in laws, of course. But the Niodiku elves (My mother’s side) did so the other way around. Like humans, we used to believe a child could have multiple fathers, so a matriarch would sire a child with many patriarchs and other lower ranked males.

Unlike humans, this did hold some truth due to our biology. But again, like humans, we drifted from the practice onto harems and nuclear families (Like the Orcs) and and our genetic health plummeted as a result.

Yhough I am undeniably half human (bleh) I consider the other elves my Mother tried to conceive with my foster fathers.

Whoa, no need for the casual racism... Like I said, that was long long ago. We can't hold the ignorant actions of our ancestors in modern contexts. It's not like the elves knew about DNA ether at this time, and if ether did things would have likely been different. The past is a foreign country as they say, and I think many of our struggles are quite intersectional and can be overcome together.

I am glad to hear that you keep strong family bonds, stupport systems are incredibly important.

Try not to hate your human half, humans have their strengths as we all do. It is something special that you may have gifts unique to you because of your dual parentage.

Not to lean into stereotypes, but if you have an elf's eye and a human curiosity, that could make for a very passionate astrophysicist!

Well, yes, I have been awfully curious about these “virtual consoles” from Nipon. I think the technology has great practical use in space faring, but most of you won’t live to see what I have planned.

Ah, the comp-sci lab at my university just got one of these things.

Quantum computation is quite a feat, there's a lot we can learn from entanglement. Like why magic faded 400 years after the oblivion crisis, if there are parallel universes, cracking the codes holding the elder scrolls deep underground, quantum communication.

We haven't had it long though, the tech scholars are still figuring it out. I have heard that the got it to successfully play Doom.

Yes. Doom. Gore, chunks and bile. Take me back to my days in the 1785 Anglo-Igbo war or something. Don’t remember. I do remember single-handedly terrorizing British villagers and city dwellers.

Or was that France? Or Germany? Or Rome?
