I know what you have been telling the others. You mouth the word "cult," and repeat lies the Chantry has been spewing at us for a thousand years. Look around you, my friend. See what mighty Tevinter is today: A once-proud nation brought low, barely able to hold itself against the oxmen. We neutered our mages at the behest of a foreign religion, exalted their false Maker, and became the laughing stock of all Thedas. Now we have the chance to reclaim what is rightfully ours, but only if we act. We cannot wait to see which way the wind is blowing---we must MAKE it blow.

The Venatori are hunters, recruited in secret over several years. We will descend with deadly purpose, to spill the blood of the South and make it ripe for conquest; when we return to our homeland it will be as victors, with a new god as our patron. Then the cowards who refused to aid us will know their mistake in full. ---Reported as evidence to the Vyrantium Circle of Magi, Dragon 9:40

~ From Codex Entry: The Venatori.

The Venatori are an evil organization in Dragon Age: Inquisition.


They are a Tevinter nationalist group that wishes the land of Tevinter returns to its former glory when the whole continent of Thedas was under their rule. When Corypheus found them and introduced himself as a magister of old they began to serve him. As they worship him as a god they eventually became a sect and under his command they gathered resources to conquer the world for him.

Calpernia is their leader who buys and captures slaves to recruit them.

Gereon Alexius try to recruit rebel mages to their ranks but the Inquisitor can prevent it.

Livius Erimond brainwashed grey wardens and tries to use them to bring Nightmare Demon to Thedas.
