Outward Wiki

Some of the major characters gathered at an important meeting.

Characters, or NPCs (Non-Player Characters) when not referring to the player, are an important part of the world in Outward. By interacting with NPCs and exploring their dialogue, the player can learn Skills, buy and sell various Items, partake in Quests, and learn about Lore and the world. Most NPCs are members of one of the major Factions.

For information about the player character from a game-mechanics perspective, see Attributes.

The Player[]

Other than what is told to us through the dialogue at the beginning of Castaway and various characters in Cierzo, we know relatively little about ourselves. Most of our story is defined by our choices in Quests.

At the beginning of the game, we are told that we have lived in Cierzo all our life. We bear the heavy burden of a Blood Price placed on our family by our Grandmother, long ago. We are the only child of a hunter and huntress couple who were the keepers of the Cierzo lighthouse, which we are now the sole inhabitant of after their passing.

Most recently, we embarked on an expedition with our close friend Yzan Argenson and a group of several other Cierzo natives to Oroshi, hoping to claim enough bounty there to pay off our debts to the Tribe. Catastrophically, our ship hit rocks on the return voyage, and we lucky to escape with our lives at all.

Major NPCs[]

The major characters in Outward are those who are closest to the player's character, and those who hold power over the world of Aurai. In some cases, characters can be both.

In terms of closeness to the player, the most important characters are:

Other characters which hold considerable power over Aurai include:
