Sekiro Characters and NPCs are the various people that you find throughout your journey. These Characters and NPCs may trade with you, give you Quests and Side Quests, or share parts of the Story and Lore for you to piece together. 

FromSoftware has revealed that players can expect to see NPC questlines similar to those found in the Souls series, which would mean NPCs provide optional objectives that can be failed and alter the NPC spawn locations, their attitude towards the player character, and their own story progression. Some NPCs found in the world will later move to the the Dilapidated Temple hub, and talking to them can progress their quests. It is not yet known if NPC quests will have an impact on the game's multiple Endings.
