Pinarus Inventius is an Imperial hunter, woodsman, and marksman residing in Anvil. He is a Journeyman Marksman Trainer and is available for training in his house in the west part of the town between 8 pm and 12 pm. He can usually be found just outside the walls of Anvil.
The Guild has been asked by one of the locals, Arvena Thelas, to take care of a rat problem in her basement. The Guild believes it is to clear out the rats, but the Guild member sent is not fighting rats—they are defending them.
Once the Hero's Marksman skill is at least 70, Pinarus will offer one last piece of advice. He will state that those who want to master the bow must find Alawen, who is the best archer he has ever seen.
