They don't need to fit into any existing rigid stereotypes if they choose not to and applying any historical fact or fantasy literature perspectives to DW may prove to be unsafe. This is further complicated because Bereny and the other areas are evolving as we play and even Steve may sometimes be surprised by how things go.

Of course in the case of Shanna there are in-game reasons to suggest they should be really anti-undead. Having said that despite his public statements the High Priest has chosen not to go against the King on this one and at least one crusader has been cast down when she spoke out against the Lady Crusader of Shanna I believe.

Your opinion of isolated incidents and a "plague" may be very different indeed. That is certainly the thinking of Stryker for instance. Once upon a time the Tower had a vampire in it. The experience was not a positive one. Since then he and the Tower have set themselves against undead and that degree of antithesis is increasing exponentially,
