NPCs in Dark Souls 3 are covered on this page . Many of these non-playable characters offer services as Merchants and others feature intricate sidequests and story lines.  Initially, in the Firelink Shrine players will find a Fire Keeper tending to a bonfire who will serve players on their long and arduous journey. Players will find other characters inhabiting the shrine including Hawkwood, an Unkindled and fugitive from Farron's Undead Legion, along with a peculiar looking man sitting on one of the thrones in the shrine calling himself Ludleth of Courland.

Please see the Side Quests page for an overview of how NPC questlines interact with each other.

      There is also a pygmy that wants to betray the others in the last DLC, he's right before the bonfire where the demons drop you in the Ringed City. He didn't appear in all of my playthroughs, though. I don't know what the trigger is but I went there as early as possible from the Ariandel bonfire and I didn't initiate the lord of hollows questline.

        I just reloaded my game to a character that just finished new game. I went into both DLCs to get the first bonefires. Then I went back to firelink to respec the character and all the NPCs but FireKeeper/Blacksmith/OldHag Vendor are all gone. Do they move into the DLC I assume?

          What about that NPC you meet right after you get brought to the Ringed City? The one on the ground right before the First encounter with the Judicator.

            Who could forget orange Mitchell? He linked the first fire. He became the first dark lord. He soloed the entire game. The best deprived. He fought the crystal lizards. He became the best mercenary through sheer force of will. He was the first sunbro. He shines more incandescently than Solaire. Scc British magic school. He was an all around sexy boi and founded the way of orange, which has become the new dominate religion.

                An Invading NPC that sometimes spawns in Anor Londo, if you're invaded go to the fog door before the Aldrich fight and she will have a fire reisen infront of her you can pick up. You can either ignore her after that or kill her since you are heartless scum, you're alerted of her possible spawn via a message regarding a Dark Phantom ahead, but trying love. The sign is found near the Anor Londo bonfire before the silver knights.

                  since the covenant "" npcs "" that dont talk i.e. farron wolf are considered i dont see why the tree which gives the seeds after your invaded periodically *or however it works* which you interact with isnt a "npc" but i suppose it could be under classification same to that of estus soup, idk just throwing that out there.

                      To trigger Greirat to leave shrine after sending him to a first trip, you just can reload shrine location. Its not neccesary to visit undead settlement again

                      • unknown NPC18 May 2016 05:47  

                        While in Cemetery of Ashes I ran across an unknown NPC to the far right of the cemetery after you defeat the undead dog. This was after I explored High wall of Lothric but didn't defeat the Boss. He looked like a knght with long hair, had a huge sword without armor. This NPC was not listed with the others. I did not aggro him. He is no longer there.
