Characters are beings who speak to the players. Often referred to as Non-Player Characters (NPC's), they will only state scripted lines either triggered by a timer, event, or character action. It is unknown whether more characters will be added to the game in future updates.
Bosses are targets in Assassination missions. They are stronger counterparts or high rank officials within their own factions and are outfitted with superior weaponry, higher health and shields compare to the normal infantry. Occasionally, bosses will insert a player's name or Clan's name in their taunts.
