A variety of questions

I've been looking into the concepts of animation magic. And I was wondering, what effects would it have on the source creature? Would it hurt them at all?

When it come to NPCs, would an animated creature fall under possessions, or a NPC? I'm assuming this depends how intelligent they are, but I'm curious.

Would the following NPCs fall under Stationary or Traveling Companion:
Mother and Father- Not much to these.
Sister- Might come with Lisana at times.
Teacher- I wasn't sure what else to call him. He is the one who teaches Lisana Animation. There's more detail in my CS under history.
I'm pretty sure of where they'd go, but I want to make sure.

I maybe able to help out with some of these questions, but my answers could be overruled due to not being correct. With that said here we go:

I've been looking into the concepts of animation magic. And I was wondering, what effects would it have on the source creature? Would it hurt them at all?
I am not 100% sure what you mean here. Do you mean the person providing the memories and reflexes for the Golem? Or the thing that is animated?

When it come to NPCs, would an animated creature fall under possessions, or a NPC? I'm assuming this depends how intelligent they are, but I'm curious.
I am almost 100% it would be a possession, unless you master the craft and are able to produce a near life Golem. Even then I do not think a Golem can't truely learn thus couldn't be an NPC.

Would the following NPCs fall under Stationary or Traveling Companion:
The thing with NPC is they are rather limited usually for approval unless they play a very important role. In the question of Stationary or Traveling, you need to ask yourself will they come with you 85% of the time. If the answer is no, id say stationary.

Mother and Father-
Stationary.

Sister-
Stationary

Teacher-
Stationary.

Again, my answers maybe wrong, but I hope this is able to get you down the right path to get started.

Thanks. By the first question, I meant the person providing the memories and reflexes.

And I wasn't sure when it came to the teacher, because a PC can't learn from a stationary NPC. Or so the lore says.

I do not believe anything will happen to the person that provides the memories and reflexes.

As for the NPC, your character can learn something from a person in the past without that person being a full fledge NPC.
