In the clan making ceremony candidate wyters come forward and they and the clan's ring negotiate as to who will form the clan's wyter - so both sides tend to share values.

A clan's mythic history is less the history of its actual ancestors than of its wyter - remember that is what gains the powers from those mythic events. It's one of those issues where your origin has less to do with actual ancestry than adopting an ancestry. When you create a clan the people who form it may in fact have quite different ancestry, but the wyter binds the clan together in a common 'accepted' ancestry.

It's somewhat akin to all those Englisk king genealogies that at one point descend from Odin and then at another point from Abraham. It's an ancestry but not based on blood.

Now this is important in this context because a Monrogh clan likely needs a new wyter, and so choose/meet a wyter that has some sympathy with their religious beliefs. I'd have thought many are similar to Elmali clans, but just replace references to Elmal with Yelmalio and you will be fine.
