I, a lover of fantasy and biochemistry, would like to point out that Mendelian genetics can work perfectly well in fantasy worlds. You just have to put a little thought into it. In fact, thinking about things like magic in terms of evolutionary biology and genetics can provide some really interesting ideas, especially about drawbacks- Why, exactly, is the trait for mad majickal skillz not found throughout the population? (This is one of the very, very few things I thought Robert Jordan did right- since the girls were being recruited to a celibate group and the guys were getting killed, the numbers dropped)
