The Dragon Age Absolution cast brings to life triple A fantasy role-playing game series, Dragon Age.

A game turned anime, it follows the footsteps of other popular game titles that received adaptions in the last two years on Netflix — League of Legends: Arcane, Dota: Dragon’s Blood, Tekken: Bloodline, and Cyberpunk: Edgerunners.

Developed by BioWare, also known for its massively successful Mass Effect series, Dragon Age currently has four titles in its main series: Dragon Age Origins, Dragon Age II, and Dragon Age Inquisition, and Dragon Age: Dreadwolf.

Absolution is set in the universe of Dragon Age, but is not tied to BioWare’s core games.

Just like any typical role-playing game, the story follows a mercenary party that features people of different races with different specializations: two mages, two warriors, and a rogue.

Their quest? To steal a blood magic artifact, the Circulum Infinitus, from a fortified city called Tevinter Imperium, defended by an army of warriors and a powerful magister.
