Theory

Every Horsie has two genetic alleles, one inherited from each parent. One of these alleles gets expressed as the Horsie's breed (or alignment). The other is recessive, and can only be determined through the Horsie's offspring. There are four possible alleles, labelled A, E, F and W (for Air, Earth, Fire and Water). The allele that gets expressed as the Horsie's breed/alignment is known as its phenotype. The four breeds/alignments and their corresponding phenotypes are as follows:

Alignment Key

  • Horsie - Earth: E
  • Flying - Air: A
  • Sea - Water: W
  • War - Fire: F

Phenotypes

Remember, each Horsie has two alleles, one coming from each parent. One of these is expressed as its breed, and the other is recessive. It's assumed, but not proven, that there's a 50/50 chance as to which of each parents' two alleles (the phenotype or the recessive) is passed down to any given offspring.

Of the two inherited alleles, which one is expressed (the phenotype) is determined by the rules of dominant alignments, e.g., if a Horsie has an Air allele and a Water allele, it will always be a Winged Horsie, as Air is dominant over Water.

Type Will May
Horsie EE EA EW
Air AA AW AF
Sea WW WF WE
War FF FE FA

From this table, we see that there are a total of twelve possible combinations of alleles making up the four possible breeds of Horsie. Horsies with known breeds but uncertain allele combinations are commonly notated by listing all possible allele combinations, e.g., "Foam (WW WF)" means that the Sea Horsie Foam could be either WW (pure Water) or WF (Water phenotype, Fire recessive), but WE has been ruled out. (Note that for Sea Horsies, WA is impossible; Air is dominant over Water.)

A few important points should be reiterated here:

  1. A Horsie can have the same allele twice (e.g., AA). That allele will, obviously, be the one that's expressed as the Horsie's alignment.
  2. A Horsie can have a strong/weak pair of alleles, but the weaker allele will never be expressed as the phenotype. For example, if a Horsie is AW, it will always be a Winged Horsie (A), never a Sea Horsie (W).
  3. A Horsie with equivalent, but different, alleles could have either expressed as its alignment. A Horsie with A and F alleles could be either AF (Winged Horsie) or FA (War Horsie).

The four combinations of equivalent alleles appear in the "May" column above and have their phenotype decided by a further "quark" gene:

Charm Strange
C "Hot" (E/F) "Cold" (A/W)
S "Cold" (A/W) "Hot" (E/F)

Further discussion of this theory is on the talk page.

Data

Only the main allignment genes have been recorded - if the genotype is EW or AF then the Quark must be as-appropriate; so far there is insuficient data to know the Quark of any Horsie.
