The Dames are a sisterhood of criminals that came into power through the playing card criminal underground known as the House of Suits. When this house of cards toppled in the aftermath of the 52 card pickup wars, the Dames and their new husbands the Kings of Suits would rise to power and rebuild the House. The House of Suits would rule the criminal underground of Europe for a time before setting their sites on America. Trying to expand to the US through Paragon City proved challenging due to the City of Heroes. Their failed attempt to expand to the US lead to imprisonment at the Ziggursky penitentiary. But their time in prison would be a short stay thanks to The Archnos prison break. The House strived under the Arachnos umbrella but decided to move their operations back to Europe.
Their return to the Rogue Isles and their introduction to the Getaways villain group can be explored through the AE mission - The Getaways: Confidence Games - The 3 Card Monte Missions.
