Characters are the representations of persons in works of art. In the Fallout series, the term refers to the various inhabitants of the Wasteland. Characters can be divided into non-player characters (NPCs), mentioned-only characters (MOCs) and player characters (PCs).

Non-player characterEdit

A non-player character is an AI-controlled character that the player can interact with. In the Gamebryo games, NPCs are pre-programmed via "packages" in the GECK editor.

Mentioned-only characterEdit

A mentioned-only character is any person that does not actually appear in a game, and is mentioned in conversation with NPCs, on holodisks, notes, terminals, or any other source in the specific game.

Player characterEdit

The player character is a player's avatar in the game world. These can be designed by them, but some of the games offer pre-designed player characters as well. Player characters' decisions make a dramatic impact on the wasteland and its inhabitants.
