This three-issue series will follow Olivia Pryde, a failed actress turned successful con artist, who comes to the city of Ventus in Tevinter seeking her next mark. She believes she has found it “in the head of a wealthy house named Calix Qintara. But as Olivia gets closer to Calix, she realizes that he is not exactly who he says he is. And soon realizes that she is in too deep, and that they may no longer be playing her game.”
