Narrations are of the narrative function and do not depict current roles, either living or dead, or in the process of dying. The dead characters which are killed now, can die in the span of the future, as well as vice versa, past characters can be still alive, even though they're dead in the narrations. Somewhat similar is the current happening, because it might happen, but it doesn't have to. Don't worry too much about narrations, because they're not there to provide game-related advantages.
