So Alaric. With Vlad being his Gene-father according to legends and with Katherine Steiner-Davion being his Gene-mother how did he qualify for the Ward blood name when your bloodname eligiblity is decided based on your Gene-mother?

In the clans, any warrior can be a "Gene-mother" -- it's not based on the gender of the warrior. So Vlad Ward could be Alaric's Gene-mother because it is based on the warrior's DNA, not their gender.

Of course, old Alaric has some skeletons in his closet about his background..... ^-^

I am aware Vlad could be his Genemother if it was done that way.  But that isn't what was done with Alaric. Per the Canon Vlad is
the Gene father.  Example page 104 Battletech Legends  stats Vlad is the Gene father and page 156 Battletech Legends states Kat is the Gene mother.

And yes Vlad has some Skeletons.  But with the official records saying Kat is the Genemother again how does he qualify for the Ward Blood name?
