#I think that anyone looking at Adron e'Kieron and then settling on
#Vlad's daddy is just plain weird, even if she IS a Demon Goddess.
#It would be like dating Steve Jobs [1] and then moving on to my
#cousin Benjamin.  Just.  Plain.  Weird.

She's not in it for love, cuddles, lust, or a good time. She has a long
history of hatred for the Jenoine and has long-ranging Plans, and
doesn't hesitate to manipulate people and kingdoms in trying to achieve

And she tells us she's not human (in either sense, presumably) and never
was, and even if she had been, the changes she's been through in
becoming a god would have made her no longer human. And you think
"weird" is a problem here?
