That was my basic point. We don't know that Adron *could* create amorphia. 
We never see him do so, and Aliera never says he could, either.

Aliera could have gotten her Amorphia creation ability the same way Vlad 
did, tho, since her soul is a reincarnation of Keiron's other brother.

Or maybe she inherited the ability from her mother?
