    We've all used at least one NPC; problem is, other people might go to the place where they live and have zero information to work with. I figured hey, why not set up something so we can keep track and maybe provide some background details on them?
    So, here it is; template provided for ease of access and all that jazz.

    This is a useful idea, though I don’t think I’ll be so depthful. Here are my public NPCs available for anyone to use:


    Name: Bjornar
    Gender: Male
    Age: Late 40s
    Race: Human-offshoot Hylian
    Description: He’s a round-eared, round-eyed, round-bellied man, but also fairly muscular and strong underneath that fat. Slightly balding with his blond hair and speaks with a thick accent that might be Russian in the real world. He run’s Bjornar’s Bunkhouse at Hera Outpost as is a well-connected guy. Characters might come to see him to find news or people in the Trilby Highlands region, or to have an item identified. He can usually be found with his nose buried in a book or scroll.


    Name: Vilja
    Gender: Female
    Age: Early 20s
    Race: Human-offshoot Hylian
    Description: She’s Bjornar’s daughter, a blonde woman who often wears her hair in braids. She’s the only other staff member at Bjornar’s Bunkhouse besides Bjornar himself, and she’s the one in charge of most of the cooking, cleaning, and general grunt work. The business would fall apart if not for her, really. She dresses nicely, and her accent isn’t as thick as her father’s.

    Name: Emery Lapisa
    Gender: Female
    Race: Zora
    Location: Farore's Harp - Hera
    Occupation: Manager of Farore's Harp
    Description: Standing a mere five foot seven, Emery is rather short of a zora. She is petite and thin though not without a noticeable trim to herself. She has obviously had more combative training than more would assume on first look. Her headtail is considerably long with a frail sheet of fins that fall long and wispy like mimicking hair if that was possible. Skin is a hue of pale teal only to be lightened considerably on her torso that nearly appears white. She possess a long fin like dress around her legs - hiding them completely and creating an air of mystical flamboyancy to her appearance.
    Personality: Hired originally for her dedication to detail, Emery is a no nonsense sort of zora. Business is business and personal is personal. Rarely does she ever combine the two. Being the first employee hired by Dante, she understands what it takes to run the Harp as well as being incredibly prideful about it. She has no issue throwing someone out on their ass if they try anything stupid in, around or close to the Harp. Outside of work, she is generally easy going though not known to be very personable, she enjoys her privacy. What is known about her is she is a young mother to a pair of zora tots, her husband is commonly stationed in Blue Maiden, so they are not often together. She does not talk about her personal life with just anyone, only those who she has known for a min of three years.

    Name: Claire Southbank
    Gender: Female
    Race: Hylian
    Location: Farore's Harp
    Occupation: Waitress
    Description: Unlike her manager counterpart, Claire is bubbly and bright. Though clearly she is quite ditzy, her heart is in the right place. Positivity oozes out of her in waves which makes her appear very naive. Which depending on the situation, she can be. Bright crimson red hair falls close to her shoulders, cut in a slender taper as bangs frame in a right slant on her heart shaped face which draw focal point to the viridian eyes. She'll commonly dress in knee length skirts and tights though her shirts are form fitted but not tight. Vivid colours will usually be draped on her frame.
    Personality: Cute and potentially loud, Claire is the added flare to the Harp. She was only hired on to help as a temporary worker when Dante first took control of the venue, but managed to linger around long enough that she has consistent work. Known to be chatty if not a little dense, her intentions are earnest though don't think she won't tell someone where to go if she feels uncomfortable. What she lacks in sense, she makes up with actions. She is a whiz behind the bar and has been known to be quite the songstress when the Harp has an open night. Claire is still a single hylian though she doesn't just go for anyone; as she has the image of Mrs. Right in her head, men don't usually realize she is not interested in them.


    Name: Zeid Hyrule
    Gender: Male
    Race: Hylian
    Location: Traveller
    Occupation: Stock Boy
    Description: Considerably still young in the eyes of most, Zeid is about thirteen years old and possesses dark chocolate brown hair that is about shoulder length. It is quite unkempt and unwieldly which has been pushed into a small ponytail in vain attempts to control it. He is quite pale in complexion and pale crystal blue eyes. While he isn't stocky by any means, he makes up for it being quite acutely intelligent. He has been taken in as a sort of helper under Dante currently and has been supplied with better clothing, though he does keep a old worn red cloak with him, and a satchel that has the Hyrulean emblem on the bag.
    Personality: Zeid is calm and collected though he is known to be impish when the mood strikes. He isn't malicious or quick to anger, rather he tends to withdraw and assess situations before lashing out, which may suggest he has no actual training in combat. He does appear to have some ability with magic but even that is quite wild. His mind is calculated and tries to think of all avenues before making an action complete, he could even be considered tactical should he be trained correctly. Finally Zeid has made it known that Princess Zelda is his mother and by proof he carries an photo of her with himself and his previous guardian with him, showing it to those that he believes needs that proof to help him.

    Name: Mrs. Tweed
    Gender: Female
    Race: Human-Hylian
    Physical Description: An older woman in her mid to late 60s, she has silvery grey hair that, when down would likely stretch to her shoulders, though she always keeps it in a tight bun, except for a few stray strands that fall by her face. She wears very functional, but still presentable outfits, often with an apron and shades of blue and green. On her apron are several pockets filled with little knickknacks or tools that she would need while working.
    Personality: Mrs. Tweed is a kind old lady, the kind who has a bowl a lollipops or the like for litter children that stopped by her store. She is also a very chatty person who loves to go on long tangents on stories she had heard from travelers, or stories from the prosperous times before the thirty years war, though she tries to avoid stories of the war itself. She will also sit for hours listening to other's tales and will always ask if she could recount them. She loves her work and enjoys a fairly quite life working in her herbs shop. She is always honest and clean about her work often making the potions or tonics right in front of the people, only dipping into a back store room to grab supplies. She also always offers fair prices and is understanding and will accept I.O.U.s from people she knows to be honest as well.
    Family: Husband (deceased-old age)
    Location: Mrs. Tweed runs an Apothecary and General herbs shop in the City of Raru. A middle class sort of establishment that has very reasonable prices for all people. It has a second story which acts as her house.
