Dead Cells presents a variety of NPCs which inhabit the island. They are survivors of the calamity that has spread across the island and often aid the player in their journey or provide a service to them.

Most inhabitants of the island are humans or the chameleon/gobblinlike race. There is not much known about the relationship between these two races. There are other inhabitants which are not part of these two races but it is unknown if they are from other races or are mutants affected by the malaise.
