Does this weird anyone else out? 

Sure, they're not directly related, but in many cases Athosian families -will- be related. Having children with their partner's 'mother' seems to be a theme, and Ethan's half-brother is the half-brother of Janos's half-brother. Given Athos's limited gene pool they're probably faintly related themselves. Yet this seems to be accepted as totally normal by everyone. 

What makes this semi-fraternal relationship different from the one between Miles and Gregor? (slashers welcome to comment too!)
