PC is a term in gaming that stands for "player character" or "playable character". In the context of video games, PCs are played by humans rather than the computer. Video game player characters may be customised, with a player-created appearance and name, or they may be premade characters that the player is allowed to control. In table-top RPGs, PCs are played by humans other than the game master. See the Wikipedia article.
