Defilers, or Desecrators are iconoclasts and a subtype of Vandals who stain, vandalize or destroy sites or areas considered "sacred" in religious, political, cultural or Symbolic ways. This type of villain acts to desecrate its target and make it unworthy of any meaning, attacking a very symbol or value through its representation and is in some ways similar to sacrilege.
Defilers attack values they consider heretical, sinful, insulting, vituperative or even responsible for their woes with the intent of taking it down thus relating to Fanatics, Anarchists or even Protesters and Rioters but their actions are always exceedingly disrespectful and sacrilegious, otherwise downright destructive and cruel.
Some examples would include those who paint racist symbols in religious graveyards or political buildings, people who burn or vandalize churches and temples in religious wars, revolutionaries who burn flags and so on and so forth.
Graverobbers, Necromancers and Death Gods relate to this in that they defile a person's right to "rest in peace" after passing on; in most cases this may even disturb the slumber of the individual's Soul or Spirit.
