If an undead character is under the effect of a Mind Blank spell, does the spell's effect offer protection against being forced to cower or flee from a turn-undead effect?

No. Mind blank protects against:

  • mind-affecting spells and effects (which are useless against undead anyways)
  • information gathering by divination spells or effects (which obviously turn undead isn't)

Turn undead isn't either. However, I suggest you look at different items of turn resistance if that is what you are after.

The spell Life Ward (Cl 4) from the spell compendium makes you completely immune.

That spell seems to be just what I needed. Thanks! Accepting when it becomes possible. – Shiester Feb 19 '14 at 0:41
Not that I find fault with the answer, but it is considered good practice to wait about 24 hours before Accepting, so as to not discourage others who may have a relevant answer to add. Accepting implies the question is done. – Ernir Feb 19 '14 at 0:59
My apologies. I will keep that in mind for the future - I guess I just got excited because I got an answer so fast. – Shiester Feb 20 '14 at 17:59
