I just redesigned the character template: Template:Character Info.

It is now much easier to change the template colors based on the character statuses, and you don't have to be an admin to change those colors or add new statuses now.

Example:

Entering the following Creates
{{Character_Info
|name = Undead status
|status = Undead
}}
The other three templates changed by status

The new Template:Character Info is easier to read, and easier to add new entries too as the need arises.

You can now use both lower case and title case (Undead and undead).

Template colors and adding new statuses are changed at : Template:Color

Hope this helps.
