Acolytes are 1st level NPC clerics on a pilgrimage to or from a holy (or unholy) shrine - or perhaps merely seeking adventure.

Bandits are NPC thieves who have joined together for the purpose of robbing others. Bandits will act as normal humans in order to surprise their intended victims. ... Bandits may have an NPC leader of any class, fighter, magic-user, thief or cleric, who is of an experience level higher than the bandits.

"Noble" is a general term for the lord of a castle and any of his or her relatives.

Traders are first level fighters who make their living trading goods. They are similar to merchants, but much braver (and much better fighters).

Veterans are low-level fighters, usually returning from or going to a war. ...A party of veterans may be of mixed levels and alignments, or the DM may wish to give all members the same levels.
