Winthrop was the innkeep of the Candlekeep Inn in the 1350s DR. He was known for his good-humored nature and frequent jests.[1]


By 1368 DR, Winthrop appeared as a portly man, and was considered old by Candlekeep's youth.[1]


Winthrop had a jocular manner, often proclaiming his inn to be "as clean as an elven arse." His prices were considered fair, and he did his best to keep them as low as possible.[1]


Winthrop was friends with the Bhaalspawn known as Gorion's Ward, and would perform practical jokes at the Ward's expense.[1]

Imoen, another orphaned Bhaalspawn residing in Candlekeep, helped Winthrop run his inn by performing various chores, much to her annoyance. She referred to the innkeep as "Old Puffguts", which in turn annoyed him.[1] Despite their bickering, Imoen enjoyed Winthrop's company, and he taught her various roguish skills.[2]

Winthrop felt Gorion, the foster father of both Imoen and the Ward, was too stiff for his liking.[2]


In addition to running the inn, Winthrop sold various merchandise, including both weapons and armor.[1] He kept a book with pictures of naked women in his room.[2]
