The narrator of a story is the entity telling the story (creating the narative). Sometimes in fiction, the narrator is one of the fictional characters.

The narrator should not be confused with the author even when they both have the same name, as happens in some of Jorge Luis Borges' tales. The narrator, no matter how real he or she might seem, is always a literary construction, while the author is a flesh and blood person in the real world.
