Banoi Island might have been plagued by the dead and infected, but there are some people who have survived the outbreak and are fighting for their lives. These survivors are scattered throughout the Island.
You should escort them to the safe house. All of them may not agree to move with you though as they might have gone crazy with fear.
Others may ask for your help in the form of different quests that will earn you reward. Some of these survivors will stay at the Island and wait for help while others want to leave.
There are few bad guys too who will try to harm you as well as the other survivors. Following is a list survivors (location wise) along with brief description of each in Dead Island.
