From D&D, NPC stands for Non Player Character. I’ve been watching a bit of anime lately (One Piece) and there are very elaborate NPC’s frequently in anime stories. They are usually very interesting people who are tied to a certain place. The main character(s) are often journeying through these places and spend an episode or two dealing with the NPC’s problems or just hanging out with them. Our family is kind of like an NPC family.
