I don't believe Mike's assessment is ENTIRELY incorrect. At least not about the Vrykul splitting off and traveling elsewhere, forming the human race. Think about it. You've got an unknown number of Vrykul couples siring "deformed runts". (A.K.A. humans) As was pointed out in the quest line, at least some of them opted to save their children rather than put them to death. Obviously, they couldn't just take them and go toss them in the woods to fend for themselves, and it's not like they had any other sentient races to act as permanent babysitters, so at least SOME portion of these couples must have fled with their offspring. (Probably ending up in what would eventually be the Eastern Kingdoms after the sundering.) Of course, as to whether the "curse of flesh" is the cause of the "deformities" or not is debatable. Given that there were enough children born like this that laws were made to deal with it, it would seem that it's not just a sudden, natural mutation. It would have had to be laying dormant in the vrykuls genes for generations to become so widespread. (Perhaps it was more like the blue eyes in reality. You need both parents to have the gene for it for the possibility of their children being born with blue eyes. And then, the child need to inherit the gene from both parents for it to be seen.) Or, it could be the result of some sort of curse, or exposure to radiation/other unfavorable conditions.
