Does anyone have any examples from tragic plays/myths/stories that show a son inheriting a character trait (particularly a fatal flaw/ hamartia) from a father?

For context I’m studying Death of a Salesman and want to make a point about how the fact that the father Willy and son Biff share an internal conflict (essentially boiled down to nature and farming vs. urban office job). And how this shows Miller conforming to both the realist genre and the tragic genre, and so could really do with an example I could just name drop in an essay, it doesn’t have to be exactly the same just similar enough to make a good point.

Thanks.
