The Venatori are an armed cult of nationalist supremacists of the Tevinter Imperium, who wish to weaken other nations' defenses and sow chaos to facilitate the machinations of their mysterious deity, the Elder One. However they have no official sanction from the Imperium.

They have also been known to fight alongside Demons from the Fade- some of whom they bind to their mages by using a ritual granted to them by their revered Elder One and some serve the Elder One out of their own free will.

Dragon Age: Inquisition.

The Venatori, led by Gereon Alexius, take over Redcliffe Castle in Redcliffe Village. Using time warping magic, Alexius was able to conscript the rebel mages before the Inquisition. Should the Inquisitor choose to recruit the rebel mages, the Inquisition will oust Alexius from power and have the rebel mages align with the Inquisition.

If the Inquisitor chooses to support the Templars in the Champions of the Just mission, the Venatori bolstered by brainwashed rebel mages, are the force that attacks Haven in In Your Heart Shall Burn.

Lord Livius Erimond, a Venatori Magister, convinced Warden-Commander Clarel and the Grey Wardens of Orlais to use their blood magic techniques to raise a demon army to invade the Deep Roads and kill the Old Gods before they wake. The demon binding rituals Erimond taught the Grey Warden mages however has the side effect of enslaving them to Corypheus, who will use them to conquer Thedas. The Grey Warden mages of Adamant Fortress are corrupted while their warriors are used as sacrifices. After the Inquisition confront Erimond and Clarel, the Inquisition can have the option of recruiting the surviving Grey Wardens or banishing them from Orlais.

Grand Duchess Florianne de Chalons aids in the Venatori in infiltrating the Winter Palace during the Orlesian Civil War to assassinate Empress Celene and cause chaos throughout Thedas. The Inquisition attends the ball and kill the Venatori infiltrators.
