The word "necrophile" means a person who is obsessed with having sex
with corpses, you mean "necrolyte" :) 

Let's unite our concepts, what most people, including most fantasy rpg
systems and all the older developers, mean by "monster" is a creature
that is "unnatural" and/or "evil". Examples are dragons, demons, the
undead etc. 

All the "natural", "non-evil" creatures such as all the animals found in
OUR world are "animals", be it carnivore or herbivore.

"Player races" are the intelligent creatures that can be played by
normal players.

And, finally, "NPCs" are computer-controlled members of a player race.
