Church Question *Spoilers, maybe?*

So I found a church and decided to check it out. I headed into the basement, wandered around, then smashed down a door… To find a room full of blank bodies and a relic. I grabbed the relic expecting the blank bodies to turn hostile and nothing happened. I’ve been carrying the relic around for a bit and tried activating it and it doesn’t seem to do anything. Is it useless or I am just doing it wrong? Also, what’s with the blank bodies?

The relic is for an NPC quest. If you don’t have NPC’s turned on then yes, it would be worthless.

Ok, thanks for the clarification.
