Hero talking to a townsperson.

A Non-Player Character (NPC) is a general gaming term for any non-player controlled character. In Dragon Quest, these characters range from townspeople who do nothing more than talk to the player, to party members which are completely controlled by the computer. In many cases, completing game scenarios and quests revolves around finding specific NPCs who can aid the player in some way.
