I'm not agreeing or disagreeing, I'm just simply not ruling out Oberson yet as a potential, final villain. My point was that it seemed rather odd that Telltale would go through all the trouble of even introducing a leader for Crawford and build up his status as a tyrant who was consumed with authority, only to have him not even serve as a villain or have some sort of integral connection to the story before he dies.
Again, I am not denying that the zombie is Oberson, I just think it's a poor choice in storytelling if it is. There would be no point in establishing a twisted leader unless it serves some purpose later on in the game.
