CryoFall has a number of different characters and creatures.
Peaceful creatures usually run away and do not attack the player or retaliate when attacked.
Hostile creatures will actively hunt down the player and engage in combat if sufficiently close. It is possible to run away from them most of the time if one wishes to avoid combat. However, certain creatures have ranged attacks such as Scorpion with its ranged Psi attack.
Like any other creature in the game - the player also has a number of different stats.
