Answer # 1 #

Hulda is a Nord innkeeper who owns the Bannered Mare in Whiterun. She plans on retiring soon and selling the inn to Ysolda, who is trying to save up the money to buy the inn, but this never actually happens. If Hulda is killed, Ysolda will immediately take over the Bannered Mare, but will still speak of buying the inn from Hulda.

She does not go to bed, instead staying behind the counter almost all of the time. Like all innkeepers, she will sell some food and ingredients, and offers a bed for rent at a rate of 10 gold. She will also pass on rumors about quests and give bounties to complete for Whiterun's jarl. Additionally, she will buy firewood for 5 gold each, which increases her disposition and allows you to take low value items from the inn.

She wears a set of farm clothes and a pair of boots. She is equipped with an iron dagger and carries a selection of common items and gold.

Ysolda is scripted to take over the Bannered Mare upon the death of Hulda. To make Ysolda the innkeeper of the Bannered Mare, you'll have to kill Hulda, or get her to die in some manner. However, Ysolda is also scripted to take over some other shops upon the death of their owner.
