For the quest, see Friends of Red Jenny (quest).

The Friends of Red Jenny are an enigmatic organization present throughout Thedas. According to Sera, the Friends of Red Jenny are a secret society that perform elaborate revenge schemes ranging from petty thievery to contractual assassinations on those who would prey on the lowborn of society. Usually though, it's an expansive network who all contribute in disparate ways to random acts with a desired goal of mutually profitable ends. The organization is a leaderless resistance as they have no structural hierarchy and each cell is compartmentalized by location and headed by varied leadership.


An investigation undertaken by the Antivan Crows revealed that the Friends of Red Jenny started as an organization of assassins in Ferelden, at least a hundred years ago. The name of Red Jenny itself is older than the organization. They were cheap, small, and made a habit of paying street urchins to get information or plant weapons. They were a strictly local organization who mostly found their recruits among urchins, and as such weren't competition to larger guilds like the Crows.

The Friends became more active after the Fifth Blight despite much fewer members, expanding their influence with Jennies in Val Royeaux and Kirkwall (Sera and Charade, respectively). They changed the way they operate and have mostly stepped back from being assassins. Sera now appears to hold seniority, which she earned at a very young age. Her group has gained so much notoriety that they don't even need to act to be credited with an outcome.[1]
