Okay, I've pointed out that one of my characters is a vampire/elf hybrid...I've become fond of him and think he will be a great addition to my epic. But I need to make his existence believable, his parents aren't just going to hook up out of the blue, especially if they know there's a possibility that they'll produce a sterile hybrid, and then there's the distrust that tends to be there between their races. Been throwing around an idea: she just went through a breakup and was at a bar trying to drink her pain away, he was separated from his pack in an enemy attack, wandered into town...he has a thing for elves, but you'd have to get him drunk to make him actually act on it. Maybe the human/elf alcoholic beverages are too strong for him, so he's hammered after only a couple drinks? Could work since the vampire packs are isolated and don't get much food or drink that they don't hunt or gather themselves. BUT that makes a problem later on. She has to know who the father is before the kid grows fangs, and I don't think people involved in drunken one night stands remember much. Also, I'm planning on having the kid actually meet his father. She would have to remember quite a bit for that to happen. So...advice please.
