Thundest (DM)
As a DM, how much detail you put into an NPC is proportional to how much you expect to use them. Giving a life story to every town guard is kind of like doing custom paint jobs for every paper plate at a potluck. It's not technically wrong, but it takes too much effort to do all the time. Save your epic backstories and fun tidbits for the people your players will deal with time and time again, as trusted comrades or worst of enemies.

Just don't be surprised when you confront the PCs with one of your beloved and highly detailed creations, and they inevitably push him aside so they can talk to Guy at Bar #3 again.
