Characters are people that can be interacted with during gameplay. These people could be vitally integral to success of the entire mission in the Heleus Cluster or an obscure hard to find corpse in a snow drift on Voeld. There are literally hundreds of characters that can be interacted with during gameplay.
Other non-playable characters (NPCs)
