I'm not sure why this page is here, when pages like "Category:Magicians" or "Category:Mutants" aren't. It's a nice page, to be sure, but without the corollary magic / mutant / etc. pages, serves as a bit too much of an oddity to stay, in my opinion. It also has no relevance to any sort of in-game mechanics, groups, or anything else, except perhaps origin - and there's already pages for contacts with specific origins, which is the only bearing origin has on NPCs. It will be sort of a pain to remove the tag from 60-odd articles, but even more of a pain to create comparable categories for magicians and mutants and whatever other arbitrary NPC categories we think of.

I removed the {{delete}} template for now and put your comments here for discussion. If it's decided to remove this category, then the articles that are in this category should be removed from it prior to putting the delete template on it.
Regarding the questions posed, I don't see why we can't keep this category. Not everything has to be part of a well-engineered hierarchy of categories. If someone wants to create Category:Magicians and Category:Mutants at some point, fantastic. But in the mean time, their absence doesn't demand the removal of this category. -- Sekoia 00:27, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
