Most bloodlines pass through the father using a single line of descent. There have been only two matrilineal bloodlines. The majority of Troubles are not only patrilineal, they pass from father to son.

It's unknown what happens when both parents are Troubled. No Troubled character has been revealed to have more than one Troubled parent, although statistically speaking it's almost impossible for every character seen to have only one Troubled parent, especially given that many characters can trace their bloodlines back to the founding of Haven. It is possible that one Trouble dominates the other, and patrilineal Troubles tend to be more dominant.
