Civilians are a common element of the Command & Conquer franchise. They usually serve no other purpose other than to provide ambiance to the environment, although in some cases, they play a small role in some missions and in Red Alert 2: Yuri's Revenge, they can be mind controlled to act as a distraction. Most of the time, civilians will run away in terror when a battle occurs nearby, and may occasionally get killed, whether accidentally or deliberately. In Command & Conquer: Generals, civilians were relegated to being a mere background prop, and cannot be selected; they also do not show a lifebar, though they are still susceptible to damage. This was continued in Command and Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars. Civilians do not appear in Red Alert 3, or in any game after.
