The Knight Commander will inform you of newly unlocked Campaign maps and any Campaign-related quests you may have, although he does not do anything after you've beaten the Campaign and the Questlines.
The Tavernkeeper may be interacted with to report any bugs you find.
When your inventory has completely filled up, the Scavenger will collect any further items dropped on a map. He also picks up items dropped from enemies killed by falling off the map.
Talking to the Shady Merchant will bring up the Missions Menu (accessed also by pressing "J" on Keyboard or LB + DPadUp on Controller).
