Innocents (also known as civilians, citizens, or victims) are non-enemies, usually normal people, scattered among the levels. They cannot/do not harm Caleb or the Chosen, and either run screaming in a panic, or cower when they approach. They also do not do any harm to Cabal or Beta Reality Creatures. They also have low hit points and can be killed easily with no consequences. Many games of this era had some type of killable entity that was not relevant to the central game play - Duke Nukem 3D had strippers, Shadow Warrior had anime girls, Hexen II had sheep.
