Sith Pureblood/Human offspring

I would like to ask for the sake of both possible rolling of a Sith Pureblood Warrior and the Legacy unlocks and tree, whether there is a TOR Canon consensus that Purebloods and Humans could intermingle and have children? It is my impression from the game that Purebloods (i.e. descendants of the exiled Human Dark Jedi and the original Sith species' higher castes) and Humans can indeed mate (see Lord Abaron's quest). The original mixture had taken place thanks to the Sith Alchemy and the mastery of the Dark Side by the exiled Jedi, but since then the mixed offspring ("Purebloods") were genetically compatible with Humans and can be considered near-Human.

Can any of the Pureblood SW confirm that during one of the conversations with Dark Side Jaesa

In the general Star Wars lore, there seems to be a consensus that this interbreeding is possible, see http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Sith_%28species%29, section Hybridization.

Essentially, it seems like that to be considered Sith Pureblood, one had to display enough visible Sith-like traits (see above noted quest for Lord Abaron), otherwise one could be considered Human but could still have strong Sith blood (albeit without the visible traits). In both cases, the Sith Warrior, would be an heir of both the Dark Jedi and the original Sith, but in the Pureblood SW his Sith legacy would be visually distinctive (albeit e.g. Exal Kressh had like only colour of her skin and her yellow eyes to show for her Pureblood status), while in the Human SW his Sith legacy (that he takes pride in, as can be seen in his interaction with Inquisitor Arzanon) would be not visible visually (but it would of course made itself manifest in his affinity to the Dark Side of the Force).

On Korriban, a sith says that over time, Sith blood was diluted by that of their slaves until now outward signs like red skin are rare. In a FP, we're also told that 99% of the people in the empire carry some sith blood. Sith and other species can definitely reproduce.

Instead of asking in another thread, I'll ask here

What about Chiss and Human hybrids?

Yes, you are right, of course. That would be

And of course there is this FP. So I guess the matter is settled and as the SW story goes, the way it implies certain facts, the most canon races are Pureblood and Human. Pureblood is probably the most story compatible option, while the Human is the second best, almost as good as Pureblood. If a Pureblood like Exal Kressh (i.e. a Pureblood who looks like her, almost Human) had offspring with a Human Sith Lord and that offspring would have his/her own offspring also with a Human Sith Lord, the heir to their bloodline could very well be Human SW who could then

Yep, and could potentially have a sibling who looked pureblood.

well you could make a less red looking pureblood with less horns.
and since it's both possible and canon for a human to breed with a sith go for it.
