In the context of storytelling games, a character is a fictional person portrayed by a player or a Storyteller. A player character (PC) is the character portrayed by a player, while Storyteller characters (also called non-player characters, or NPCs) are portrayed by the game's Storyteller. Characters are mechanically defined by various traits, which vary from game to game, as well as by the expected non-mechanical aspects of a character: personality, motivation, back story, quirks, and so on.
In some games (mainly larger games, especially LARPs), assistant Storytellers may be selected to take on the role of one or more prominent Storyteller characters in order to free up the primary Storyteller(s) to act elsewhere.
