An NPCs (Non-player character) is any character that is not being played by a player. For every one player character, there are tens of thousands of background characters who make up the rest of the populace of the island. Some of these characters will appear only briefly, and have no real importance, such as the waiter at a restaurant your character is going on a date at.

Other NPCs are more prominent, and can be an important part of your characters life, even if they aren't the focus. These NPCs are known as Named NPCs, and are an optional way of providing more information about the people around your character. Named NPCs can include coworkers, family members, people they have a history with, classmates, etc.

Named NPCs use a shortened app format, which emphasizes giving the most information in the least amount of time. This app also clarifies the nature of the NPC (who's allowed to mention/play them) and whether or not they're up for adoption.

Every player who chooses to make a Named NPC should make a Named NPC thread. All your Named NPCs should go in this one thread.

Not all NPCs need an app. Named NPC profiles are entirely optional, and intended to help people roleplaying with you get a better idea of the characters around them.
