Anoriath, a Bosmer scout, owns a vendor stall and is the part-owner of the Drunken Huntsman with Elrindir. He played a part in the amusing tale of how the shop got its name, although only his brother is willing to tell the tale.
During business hours, Anoriath operates a butcher's stall in Whiterun's market area, selling many types of meat. At night, he sleeps in the Drunken Huntsman.
Anoriath wears a set of farm clothes with a pair of hide bracers and a pair of hide boots. He is equipped with an iron dagger and a hunting bow supplemented with 20 iron arrows. He carries a selection of common loot and gold.

Anoriath can be seen having random conversations with his brother Elrindir, as outlined below:
Anoriath: "I've been thinking of hunting out beyond the boundaries of Whiterun hold."
Elrindir: "Again? You just had an "extended hunt" last month. To the Pine Forest, wasn't it."
Anoriath: "That was three days. I'm thinking more like three weeks."
Elrindir: "Three weeks? You're mad! You can't keep the stand closed for that long!"
Anoriath: "Why not? Business has been terrible. Most folk would rather hunt their own meat than buy ours."
Elrindir: "Nonsense. That's just an excuse for you to avoid working, and "commune with the greenwood like our fathers of old" and blah blah."
Anoriath: "Congratulations, brother. You've been living in Skyrim so long, you've become a Nord."
Elrindir: "At least the Nords don't shirk their responsibilities."
Elrindir: "Our stock of arrows is running a bit low."
Anoriath: "All right. I'll fletch some more when I get the time."
Elrindir: "Good. I'll do the same. We've still got plenty of shafts from that Riverwood shipment."
Anoriath: "It's been two months, and no word from father."
Elrindir: "Don't worry, brother. I'm sure he's fine. We've waited longer before receiving a letter."
Anoriath: "Might be worth riding out to Solitude, see if a messenger ship's come in."
Elrindir: "If it'll put your mind at ease, then I agree. But not now, all right? We need the business from the stand."
He may also talk with Nazeem about his goods at the market:
Nazeem: "Do you have anything even remotely fresh?"
Anoriath: "I can assure you, it's all fresh. I hunt the game myself, every day."
Nazeem: "Hmm. As you say."
Anoriath: "Maybe you'd like to try the horker? Or some beef?"
Nazeem: "You don't prepare the meat with any of those strange Elven spices, do you?"
Anoriath: "Ahhhh... No, no Elven spices. Just some salt, to preserve it. You're not afraid of salt, are you?"
Nazeem: "I'm not "afraid" of anything. I simply prefer quality merchandise. No, no this meat won't do at all. Too much fat, and it all smells... wrong."
Anoriath: "Suit yourself, then. The woods are that way. Outside the walls, walk straight ahead. Can't miss them. Good luck on your hunt."
Nazeem: "Good day."
