So how can Priam be Ike's descendant if he's Mist's descendant?

This is an argument you hear a lot from the yaoi shippers but it really doesn't make any sense. Mist is not descended from Ike, so logically neither are her descendants.

Same way Marth is Anri's descendant even though Anri didn't have kids.

Still, I believe Priam is Ike's descendant just because it being otherwise would be kinda a copout.

You don't know what the word descendant means. Nor how it's been used in Fire Emblem.

Ike and Mist are the new Eirika and Ephraim.

Technically he would still be descended from Ike's bloodline since Ike and Mist share the same bloodline. Though I don't see the need to rationalize that much, I just take it on face value because I don't see a reason not to.

real short answer to avoid this argument again:
Lineal descendant, a blood relative in the direct line of descent.
Collateral descendant, a relative descended from a brother or sister of an ancestor.

Neither is specified yet, so it depends.

This series just can't get away from incest, whether it's in canon or in shipping.

Canonically there was never any indication that Ike and Soren were anything more than good friends.

If they can pretend Ike and Soren are banging each other, why wouldn't they be able to pretend that Priam is actually Mist's descendant and not Ike's?

Mist and Ike are siblings.

So Praim is related to both as they share the same blood.

Since you know they have the same mother and father.
