Actress Felicia Day, the former Buffy cast member, agreed to have her likeness and voice used for the character of Tallis, which will be the main focus of the new DLC. The plot for Mark of the Assassin revolves around Tallis and main character Hawke as they attempt to steal a jewel called The Heart of the Many from an Orlesian Baron.

“Mark of the Assassin features new items, new enemies and monsters and new environments as well as giving players the opportunity to experience a new, tactical way to play with the return of Stealth gameplay.

Plus, along with the new environments and monsters, you will learn more about the Orlesians and Qunari,” wrote BioWare’s Christ Priestly on the development studio’s blog.

It is said that Tallis is a combination of between Varric (ranged rogue) and Isabela (dual-wielding fighter rogue).
