Karthus in LoL did an AMAZING job for the Undead theme for me. He is an liche but a skin turns him into a rather awesome Grim Reaper. he even still lives for a while longer even when killed for a passive hehe.
I HOPE they are heroes and not faction-related because if it is the latter then it would be sort-of the generic fantasy thing going on, unless it turns out he Humans are bad guys and the Undead are coming back to life to fight back the Tyranny! that would be new (atleast to me) haha.
Personally, I have always sided with the bad guys in shows and in games (though in RPG's I always do the uber-good route, oddly enough)
Definitely new.. I don't think I've ever seen something like that before. I've seen the humans as the bad guys before, but usually it's from having a nature-based protaganist.
And unless being the bad guy simply makes things extremely difficult (Neverwinter Nights- was an incredible game, but gods forbid you got the urge to go on a homicidal rampage...), I've almost always been the bad guy. You should see me in Fable. The ground dies where I step. Women cringe, children run screaming... glorious...
And Elder Scrolls: Oblivion- I have mastered the technique of the flying sneak attack to the face. With Umbra. And sniping people right in front of the guards outside towns, then running away on my (stolen) horse. The Dark Brotherhood quest line was quite possibly the most fun I have ever had in a game.
