Recently decided to make a custom follower. Rather than attempting to make it a comprehensive follower, I just wanted to get some practice in for the real thing. I followed the Tutorial video by Seddon4494 on Youtube, which I followed to the letter (except the names of course). Everything was perfect when I went to compile the Papyrus Script, in the Quest Stages tab of the GavinaCompQuest (Gavina being the name of the companion). In the papyrus fragment section of Quest stage 10, Recruit NPC, I wrote
without the quotation marks, and entered compile. The error message that was displayed were as follows:

I must mention that I had already created the Property, named Gavina, and is correctly referenced to the Quest GavinaCompQuest and the Alias Gavina.
So I am at a loss. I am not sure what has caused these errors to occur, as I have made sure that there were no spelling mistakes, no blanks left unfilled, and the psc file for FollowerScript was inside the source folder. What I do think is a potential issue is that my Fallout 4 and the Creation Kit are both installed on F:\ Drive, while the error messages pointed to C:\ Drive. Not sure if that is related.
If anyone has an idea as to what the problem is, or has a solution, I would be very grateful. Please also let me know if I have left out any important info, or if my description of the problem is unclear.
Thank you very much.
