Yup, this has been discussed a thousand times before but yes this is where the term blue bloods came from. Nobility practiced incest and inbreeding to keep their blood pure from the common rabble. Luke marrying his cousin is not weird in their world.

Is marrying a cousin that weird though? I’ve seen it so many times I actually find it intriguing when people see it as something scandalous.
Either way, the “real” Natalia was in fact the “real” Luke’s cousin and had she married Asch, that would have been incest. But the Natalia in the game is not blood related to the king and Luke isn’t the original Luke, so Luke/Nat is not actually incest, even though the implication is there.
Honestly I’m surprised so many people talk about this but not about the fact that Suzanne, Crimson and Ingobert all have red hair, which was common only within the royal bloodline, as in, there’s a big chance Suzanne and Crimson are either siblings or cousins.

Been seriously thinking about making a Tales of month to promote new art/fic/media about our fave video game series.

With both Xillia 2 and Hearts coming out in the same year, I thought the fandom would be especially hyped about this.

What do you guys say?
