Hey Klaxas,

The card is correct. She is a living creature.

There are undead vampires in the Mage Wars universe. The Necropian Vampiress is just not one of them. The undead will rise.

She may have been born a vampire. :)

I think of her as a 'fledgling' vampire.  Maybe she's been turned, but she's not made the full transition to undead yet, she's still a living thing.

I had always presumed that while vampires as a mythology are technically undead, that as creatures they are still "human" enough that the living rules just applied to them moreso than the non-living ones.    

To me the non-living as a category more speaks to things like skeletons, ghosts, golems, and things that dont operate under the same rules and physics of life.  So while a vampire is an undead creature, its still a flesh and bone being that is capable of receiving healing and has a working, aware mind and personality.  Thus the living category "fits" it better mechanically.

That was my line of reasoning for it anyway.
