Skyrim has an incredible number of characters, enemies, animals, creatures and other NPCs. With gameplay driven by quests, NPCs are a very important part of games like Skyrim. All characters have a base ID code and a reference ID code. Named characters have unique reference ID codes used to track them in the game. Generic enemies and characters will not have unique reference ID codes. These codes can be used in Skyrim's in-game console on the PC in order to locate wandering or missing NPCs. Skyrim has greatly improved the look of characters compared to the previous games Oblivion, Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, however, many appearance improvement mods have been created by modders.
While it's only possible to review a small number of the game's characters, I hope that this might help you find the spelling of some character's names if you're unsure what to search for in the database list of NPCs above.
One of the features most anticipated from Skyrim's storyline is the inclusion of dragons. There are a number of key dragons in the game - Alduin, Paarthurnax, Vuljotnaak, Sahloknir, Nahagliiv and Viinturuth. Skyrim's first DLC, Dawnguard, also introduced some other named dragons - Durnehviir, Naaslaarum and Voslaarum.
Besides a number of different types of dragons, Skyrim has some fierce creatures that you'll find and battle with in the wilderness. These include trolls, giants, Dwarven mechnical creatures, Atronachs, spiders, ice wraiths, spriggans and wispmothers. There is also a very satisfying amount of wildlife and other animals in the game world, including bears, chickens, cows, deers, dogs, foxes, goats, horkers, horses, wolves, mammoths, mudcrabs, rabbits, sabre cats, skeevers and slaughterfish. Skyrim's first DLC, Dawnguard, also introduced gargoyles.
In Skyrim, you can have followers. Followers are NPCs that will accompany you on quests. Skyrim offers improved follower management compared to previous Bethesda games. Just some of the notable followers in Skyrim come from the following categories. There's the Companions, such as Aela the Huntress, Farkas, Vilkas and others. Hirelings are mercenaries, or followers for hire. They include Belrand, Erik the Slayer, Jenassa, Marcurio, Stenvar and Vorstag. Housecarls are also followers, including Argis the Bulwark, Calder, Iona, Jordis the Sword-Maiden and Lydia. Skyrim's first DLC, Dawnguard, adds the character Serana, who accompanies you during much of the DLC and will quest with you after the main story is complete. You will find many other followers in your travels, including some animals!
