I’m trying to figure out what the appearance of a human and a floral humanoid offspring would look like. The floral humanoids have humanlike bodies with petal hair and “unnatural” skin color (which usually a couple shades lighter of their petal color).
We know children inherit half of their parents’ DNA. Let’s take a (white/black) biracial child for an example. The child usually has light brown skin, brown hair, and brown eyes but they can have blonde or black hair, blue/green eyes, and paler or darker skin.
If the biracial child had a child with a white person, the child would be 3/4 white and 1/4 black. The child could look more white or biracial (considering genetics isn’t the same for everyone).
I know genetics go deeper than that but I just want to provide a basic example (I’m not much a geneticist so don’t expect a complex scientific post from me lol).
The floral humanoids have flower pigments for their petals and skin color. I don’t think it can mix with human pigment and it’s not possible for genetics to come up with new pigments. It could be possible that flower pigment can transfer over to the hair or skin or maybe it could even combine with human pigment.
I’m not sure about the hair. It has to be either human, petal, or both. Of course there can’t be a mixture because it wouldn’t make any sense.
(Fun Fact: There was a human-pig hybrid. No joke. I wonder how it would’ve turned out?)
I thought about humans and floral humanoids unable to produce offspring due to genetic incompatibility.
