Can I make a dead characters tab?

I'd like to make a virtual graveyard of sorts, honoring fallen heroes and having trophies of vanquished foes. Is there any way to get NPCs, PCs, and Dead Characters as a third category under the characters tab?

    Hey Sideburnicus,

    Right now there's no way for users to add custom tabs or sort characters into a third category (heck, we just got PCs and NPCs separated again!). Hopefully OP will add your suggestion to their to-do list.

    Some other options are:
    - Create a Wiki page linking to the character sheets for the fallen
    - Replace dead characters' avatars with tombstone pics
    - Photoshop a special ribbon or other mark on dead characters' avatars
    - Add (deceased) after dead characters' names
    - Tag dead characters' "dead" so you can use the "Character Quick Search" at the top of the main Characters page to find them (and/or tag living characters "alive" if that's less work)

    Hi Sideburnicus. I've included an example below. Do you mean the same titles some users use to denote players/non-player characters/special titles?

    @Schainn thank you for reaching out to your fellow user and being so thorough
