So, a couple of months ago I made up a country of sorcerers for my fantasy world. They were pretty basic at first but as time went by, they decided they wanted to something more and are now proving to be very troublesome. Although they live under one king, they are divided into several different clans, each based on their power. You know, the cliche type of power that's basically the four elements (although they branch off into several others).
So what I want to know is: does it make sense if they can be born into the same family?
Like even if two fire clans married, they could have an ice child. And then when they were older, they would be sorted into the clan that they are. And also that, one child could have several of the powers, although it would be rare?
You see, I was writing a story and I realised that everyone in the royal family has a different power. Although one prince is the same as the king and the other prince is the same as the queen, the third prince and the princess have different powers.
Please give me an answer and help me out.
