When the Unsoiled Heritage rules were put in place in the Magimundi, the unifying governance was still young and the agreed-upon rule seemed to make sense at the time, but is proving to be rather short-sighted. The rule is that to be Unsoiled, you must have four grandparents who are Unsoiled themselves (e.g. both of their parents were magic users). “Nouveau Unsoiled” are families claiming Unsoiled status by generational attrition. Eventually, Mixed-Heritage mages who form partnerships and have children with each other will generate an Unsoiled Heritage offspring once the criterion of four magical grandparents is reached. The “True Unsoiled” families do not take kindly to these “Nouveau Unsoiled,” accusing them of exploiting semantics.
