Personal Commentary:

I did some digging incase the definition wasn’t representive of something for gaming. I didn’t see anything beyond the fact that definition two can also pertain to physical features. So I think this one’s on here for reading references, and perhaps usage in describing the personality or physical traits of an NPC. An avuncular person is non-threatening, either in appearence or mannerisms.
