Ithakus, I can understand the pont yuo are trying to make, but there is a slight flaw in your thinking. I agree that evil takes life while good preserves it (as a generality). And it would seem that since Animists and loyal to the sanctity of life, then they would have a greater propensity to assist those of good alignment. This is where you thinking goes awry. Animists are higher than good, they are angelic. ALL life to them is sacred (at least as discribed in the manuals and help files) whether that life if good or evil. Thus, they should (in essence) heal everyone regardless of how much that person has killed or help others.
