While it's far from canon, I've always liked this stance regarding 'good' Forsaken:All undead, all of them, are insane. This is a natural consequence of being taken away from life. It's why ghosts are vengeful and cannot move from the places and times of their life, it's why ghouls go bugnuts and rip everything apart. It's why Sylvanus's desire for revenge goes beyond sensible and into obsessive territory. You can't be undead and sane.For most undead, this warps into vengeful paranoia and meglomania, as we've seen. If you're not buying into this, it's because some OTHER insanity is filling the gap.I like this approach because it makes sure that your Forsaken character remains broken, while giving you more play options.

(@ Sean Riley) Hah, agreed. There's plenty of in-game text supporting the idea that the Forsaken are all pretty much off their collective rockers, so to speak. And it does a good job of explaining the prevalence of malice and cruelty among the undead while still allowing them a path to "goodness."(@ Alex) Thanks so much for getting to my question! I was afraid it was too long, but you tackled it just fine. =) Your answers basically confirm how I feel about it. Thanks for giving my favorite race some exposure, haha

You sir, are State-of-Living... ist...We undead are not insane, our hate for all living things is entirely rational.
