I am currently working on a story, and would like to pose a Theoretical Genetics Question. If a non-human shape shifter takes human form, then meets and falls in love with a human being… Would their offspring be shape shifters as well? For the sake of this question we will make four basic assumptions. A) Both are normal healthy specimens of their respective races. B) They successfully have children without any complications. C) The specific DNA sequence that allows the shape shifter to function is dormant in human beings. But, remains active when the shape shifter is in their human form… Potentially allowing it to be passed on to their offspring. D) The gene that allows shape shifting is a normal ( Non-recessive ) characteristic of the shape shifter’s race.
