NPC Following Player Help

I’ve been working on a project and have a part that I want to have in it where the player helps escort an NPC. The problem is that I’m not sure how to do so.

I won’t include a link to the game, I really hope that won’t be a problem. I just need to know if there’s some way to do this.

I think it’s important to mention that the game is a top-down styled game.
