    How so? I mean, if you can confirm that you're personally descended from him.

    Because if everyone breathes oxygen it's not actually remotely special or interesting in any way

    But most people aren't descended from Genghis Khan. And the question was simply whether you have any ancestors worthy of being Servants, not whether any of them are particularly rare and unusual. It's only cheating if you claim someone as an ancestor without evidence.

    My granma once told me that our family had ties with the old local Sultanate, and this Sultanate has a long lineage which connects it to an even older local Kingdom which supposedly descended from the legendary hero Bhima of Mahabharata; which is why both the Sultanate and the Kingdom as well as the region which I lived was named Bima.

    Poor German migrants on one side, poor Italian/Portuguese on the other. Apparently some n x great grandfather in the latter fought in a war or something.

    If you go back far enough you might find Karl somewhere in there I suppose.

    Yea, Family line paternal side is all Vikings and the Clan are part of those that formed Normandy. If the person has any spelling of our last name, no matter how its spelled, guaranteed family and any genetic test will pick it up. Lot of European places are also named after the family, we did a lot of raiding. Great uncles were all in Nam, great grandfather was in the first wave on Normandy beach, survived too. Lots of family was in the royal air force in world war two (volunteered) and I'm not too sure of WW1 involvement. Family is also on the Doomsday book. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domesday_Book) Maternal side Grandfather was also in Nam, claims family has English heritage in the form of nobility killed by bloody Mary. Have a lot of Dutch ancestry on the maternal side as well, Paternal side confirmed mostly Scandinavian, Irish, Scottish. Somehow a Turk got mixed in at one point but is only 1%, less than 1% Jewish and that's probably bred out by the time it reached me but still a 'lineage.' I number of my family were important politicians and some of the first female politicians. So, yea, probably have a number of family that would Qualify as heroic spirits. In fate terms probably a high chance of being strong mages or perhaps some sort of genetic quirk/gimmick.

    Apparently, I'm very distantly related to President Woodrow Wilson on my Mother's side. So, I guess since Edison is a thing, sort of? Otherwise, I'm not well versed enough in my ancestry to know. Rip Average Joe.

    Well, on my grandmothers side of the family, I have blood from a conquistador, and my grandfathers side, an aztec.

    Are those noteworthy enough?

    Edit:

    Those were my moms parents.

    On my dads side of the family, my grandfather served in the navy, and my great-grandmother made it through the great depression.

    What are the current rules for becoming a Heroic Spirit? I'm not convinced that "so-and-so was in the War" is enough. I mean, literally millions fought in World War II alone. The percent of people in any given war who accumulate an individual legend has got to be minuscule. So is that a prerequisite or not? Where is the bar set?

    And does the general lack of Heroic Spirits post-19th century still hold?

    My namesake and putative ancestor if we're going by Hindu religious traditions cursed Indra to have 1000 vaginas after the latter raped his wife.
