The latter. They are instances of subclasses of class Player. Usually  
they are singletons, unless you create "siblings" which are instances  
of the same class and so share all scripts.

You can actually see the scripts in the class browser (although there  
was a bug so that script methods did not show up properly, fixed in  
update #2210 scriptCatFix-sw).
