I've been really enjoying the AP so far, knowing the people I play with though they'd be down for recruiting even more people to the circus than the AP gives them access to that's a fact.
I mean come on, Elephants are great for a big-top, Mammoths and Stego's are a step better, but a Bronto? Now that kind of Jumbo would definitely draw a crowd!
I mean...there are some very inhuman Demonic and Monitor entities that I could easily see being able to create "Planetouched"
Regardless of that fact, Aasimar and Tieflings aren't always born of a bloodline coupling between Mortals and Outsiders.
Proximity to prodigious Fell or Holy energy can lead to that sort of birth.
Look what happened to Nualia and her child...that poor, poor girl.
The plagues are washed away, and no one is really sure what happened to the statues to make them that way, just that they were once the examples of the Vesk's greatest heroes. The only statue left untouched is of a strange alien the Vesk have never encountered with a plaque that says one word, "Serenity".
Also, there is plenty of examples of ruins, murals, and statues surviving the Gap within the book and others. The Gap isn't this void where everything was taken away, it's mutable amnesia that effects worlds in a different fashion. The Gap didn't even end at the same time in certain locales.
The only thing that is innately evil or good in Starfinder are the different types of Outsiders, which you will have noticed are no longer termed as such in 2E another divergence.
Like you're obsessing about the whole idea of Undead and what they will be viewed as by these fictional churches, well what about the fact that Inevitables and Axiomites are just counted as Aeons now in 2E, which is again, not the case at all when it comes to Starfinder.
You are making mountains out of molehills and getting supposedly upset over a very arbitrary thing.
Scroll down, you will find James Jacobs words on the subject for your own eyes, but this is what was written.
"The Gap is pretty much us saying "Yes, they exist in separate timelines." The two games share a lot of the same DNA in the form of both rules and story, but what happens in our Pathfinder products from now until whenever in the future does not always mean that happens in Starfinder, and vice-versa.
As a very over-the-top example... if we decided 20 years from now to do an adventure path in Pathfinder in which Abadar gets killed, that doesn't mean that all of a sudden Abadar was never a part of Starfinder."
Starfinder canon and Pathfinder canon aren't going to be interfering according to Creative Director who said that Starfinder and Pathfinder are alternate timelines and that anything that happens in Pathfinder in the future will not delete the history already at play in Starfinder.
It is likely vice versa, people retconning that in their own games are not something you have any control of. I honestly don't know why you have such an issue with other people deciding to do what they wish in their own games.
You're using confirmation bias to make your own opinions out as facts when that is not the case.
This is also a game where you can canonize whatever you wish for your own campaign.
There are also cases of Undead characters that are not evil, and races that are undead and not inherently evil.
And I all I can find is the Creative Director saying that Starfinder and Pathfinder are alternate timelines and that anything that happens in Pathfinder in the future will not delete the history already at play in Starfinder.

Sargava became Vidrian after a slave revolt ignited into a full fledged rebellion against the colonial government with native born Mwangi joining alongside Taldan citizens who had been raised for generations in Sargava to overthrow the corrupt government.
They have allied with Senghor to hold off the Pirates from the Shackles because they also stopped the payment that was robbing the nation of its wealth believing it would be better to find their own footing without a debt to brigands and privateers.

Wait...but the Bestiary stats in a small blurb in the Elemental sections that the Goodly Elemental Lords have escaped...
Basically, they believe if this were to come to pass Reality would not restart. There would be no Survivor, no Watcher, *there would be nothing*.
Reality will end at some point that is a fact of the Pathfinder Universe, but even if that is the case someone is supposedly going to take Pharasma's place as the last survivor of this reality and will take her place as the entity that reignites the cycle. There is also the Watcher who already knows the exact End and can only watch as everything transpires, the current Watcher is Yog-Sothoth. The Daemons want this cycle to cease entirely, and strangely it's hinted that Rovagug can't even pull that off, and that brings into question the identity and power of Starfinder's Devourer...Let's just say I've been thinking about all this stuff ever since Concordance of Rivals and the Windsong Testaments came out.
Velstracs believe in perfection through pain, but that is a process that takes them millennia to "perfect" themselves. They existed in hell longer than Devils, being created from the first dark thoughts of the Mortal Races. Despite their old conflicts with Heaven's "refugees" they are now allied with them on a grand scheme. However again they are on a path to their own warped view of perfection, and the Daemons crusade would cut that path forward short, though in the short term they both enjoy nihilism in their own fashion.
Rakshasa's started as mortal beings who consistently strive to be born again and again in their search true immortality and deityhood. They don't want to die, they're selfish and hedonistic and just want to keep encountering all the pleasures life has to offer. I feel like Daemons would hate them, for those same reasons. Since Daemons have that whole, "Kill everything till we're the last race of being left, then kill each other until one remains and then that one commits ritualistic suicide."

I mean does Orcus actually WANT to work with Asmodeus? Or even Charon? Cause I kind of doubt it...
I mean, the Blood War is nonexistent in Pathfinder as far as I am aware, but it has been stated before that even Devis and Azatas would put down their swords to turn them on the Daemons if they launch a large enough attack.
The Daemons want everything to end. The Demons want things to continue so they can keep breaking it. Devils want things to continue so they can eventually rule it all, so in the end, I could honestly see Demons and Devils putting aside their differences to take on the Daemons.
