Undead is a race, not a status

There was formerly some controversy on whether being Undead is considered an aspect of race or just a "status" for the purposes of {{Npcbox}}. Blizzard basically settled this by listing Sylvanas Windrunner's race as "unique undead"[1] in an official bio released for the Icecrown Citadel patch. These guidelines are based on that decision:

  • "Undead" is part of race information, not status, even if completely unassociated with the playable Undead faction, or indeed any humanoid race
  • Various undead races:
  • Various statuses: "Alive", "Active" (when referring to gods, demigods and related beings), "Imprisoned", "Deceased", "Killable" or "Unknown".
