She can be found dead inside Moss Mother Cavern. She ventured there with Niels and Valdr to kill a bear. She and Niels were killed by a Spriggan, leaving Valdr wounded, poisoned and awaiting assistance to avenge her death and give her a proper burial.
Ari was also the one who originally gave Valdr his dagger, Valdr's Lucky Dagger, telling him it would bring him luck.
If you return to Moss Mother Cavern after the events of the miscellaneous Quest, "Hunter and Hunted", there are two small cairns outside the cave entrance. They are probably the graves of her and Niels, the other deceased hunter.
- Ari is actually a common male Scandinavian name, deriving from Norse, meaning "eagle".
