This article is incomplete and lacks major information points. Please improve it by adding relevant information.

Non-playable characters, or NPCs, are characters controlled by the computer instead of the player. For example, merchants and guards are NPCs. It is possible to kill NPCs, whether or not they are passive or aggressive. Certain NPCs can be spawned by the player. (Note: You can not get brains from the Spawnable NPC's)
