I don't think that genescans are what would be considered common.  The
scan on Norathar was a special case, performed by the Sethra the
Younger as part of an official inquiry.  It wasn't performed
casually, and I imagine is not something that can typically be done

So, while Dragaerans have the ability to do genescans, I'm guessing
that, much like our own paternity tests, they're not performed that
