In one of my stories, I actually worked out a set of fifteen or so genes, each with two or three separate allelles, that caused the mix of magic talents in my story. I've lost the info on the specific genes, but I do recall that it was possible for a child with a strong talent in this one plot-important 'forgotten magic' to pop up without any relatives having that particular talent. I was planning to have a generations-long conspiracy in place based on the faint hope of finding the hypothesized decendant of this one person, only to discover that someone who is most definitely *not* descended from them shows the qualifications they need.
