All Confirmed NPCs in Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree

With the release of Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree, several new features have been added to the game, including new bosses, a new section of the map, and even NPCs.

Well, based on my early gameplay, Shadow of the Erdtree aims to do that and more with the in-game NPCs. So, how many NPCs exist in the Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree, and what is their location?
