I believe someone has created a few, or should I say, quite a few NPC charts.
Then you can modify them and say, hey this guy is a temple guard, and this one is my trusty footstool, oh and that guy over there, he holds my drinks. Yes he is a 18th level scholor who specializes in tasty drinks. Care to have some?
I hope that helps. Though, if you already knew that this existed, then perhaps I'm not understanding what you are wanting.

The spreadsheet mentioned earlier is a useful start, but I'd love to see some more variations, such as town guards, temple acolytes, commoners, hired assassins, merchants, etc. So that I didn't always have to constantly make adjustments.
