Why do Forsaken character models have the shredded-at-the-joints appearance on ALL of the armor they wear, as well as the protruding bare spine on the back? You'd think, especially in the post-WotLK world, that any new armor/robes they happen across would cover up those bits. Having heavy plate armor have that ragged-cloth look is a bit...odd. Unless the Forsaken as a whole have decided that this particular look is their "thing", and religiously adhere to it. Or perhaps Sylvanas decreed it so, therefore ensuring no one could be better-looking than her in her faction.OOC, I know that it's part of the features that distinguish the Forsaken race (the hunched-over posture being common to many other races as well). And the character models probably have the texture map hard-coded to be that way or something. I'm just interested to know if there can be an in-lore explanation for that.

Yeaahhhh... that really has nothing to do with lore and is instead a question of game design/mechanics, rather than one trumping the other. Your question could also be extended to other areas: How can Forsaken with no jaws speak? Why are all [gender] members of [race] the same height? Why don't npcs that look like your character get mistaken for you, and vice versa? Why am I being called "Azeroth's greatest hero" when that other guy running away was just told the same thing?For all intents and purposes lore-wise, your character is unique; there has never been and will never be a Forsaken who looks like you or accomplishes what you have. In the lore, you ARE that special snowflake. :)

There can't be an in-lore explanation for that, since the lore already contradicts it. Unlike in the game, in the lore, not all undead look alike.
