Contemplating Cetra genes...
21 hisses or Hiss in my ear....

So, I agree with Zack's definitely. Seph’s most probably. (I would actually give Seph something to do with healing. If you look at the character, it makes sense. It's just twisted and warped by his experiences)

Well, with Sephiroth, with his wacky messed up genes, he could have more than two active gene sets, so he could have Heal as a tertiary gene. ::ponder::

And I think the potential for saddling Rufus with the Protect/heal adds a very funny wrinkle to him.

Yes, that would be evil of me. ::cackle::

I actually was thinking more about Lu in this, than Hojo or Vince. I would actually call her Gene Combo Compel/Command. As it's completely unconscious and/or hard to control, the fact that she made Vince follow her with that degree of fanaticism, and even managed to attract Hojo's attention. And probably had the same sort of effect on Gast as well. I don't know if I'd call it compel or Seduction, but she's got something that makes her almost irresistible to the men around her. And giving Hojo the command ability, and assuming that Command genes cannot work against one another

I have to say that I'm not that thrilled with Lucrecia's characterization in DoC. -_- But I can see your point about her. However, I'm reserving Command as a very rare gene, because it represents various abilities which enables the person to forcibly override another's will. Therefore, the aspect of 'compel' is completely encompassed by command. Which means that Rufus probably won't have it. ::ponder::

(As seen by the fact that Seph couldn't make Hojo blow his brains out.)

::blink:: When did this happen? And there's a good reason why the current COI-Sephiroth can't control others at the moment -- he's sane and therefore is mostly unaware of the ability and is not accessing his full genetic potential (including both Cetra genes and Jenova-CORE cells).

However, in view of your comments, I can see Lucrecia and Hojo having a lower level gene version of Command -- something like Persuade. I don't think 'compel' fits because they can't force another to obey them.
