A Non-Playable Character, otherwise known as an NPC, is any character in the game that is not directly controlled by a player.
An NPC can be an enemy, quest-giver, merchant or any other character in the game that players do not control. NPCs can be friendly, hostile, or neutral. Some NPCs serve a purpose, while others are merely used for decoration.
NOTE: Players will often refer to hostile NPCs as mobs, monsters and enemies.
Examples of Use Edit
- You could ask, "Can you help me find this NPC?"
- Someone could say, "I like the Castanic NPCs. They're funny."
