The 15 types of characters you meet in every RPG

GamesRadar - Heroes that insist on doing everything on their own must be socially inept, trying to compensate for their insecurities, suffer from horrendous body odor, or all of the above. Saving the world isn't something you do by yourself--you need allies at your side to give you support and cover your six when you're going up against a seemingly unstoppable evil. And no genre emphasizes crowded adventuring parties like the RPG, where everyone has a part to play and no party size is too big (outside of combat, that is). It's always the more, the merrier, and some followers even end up being more interesting than the protagonist who's leading them.
