Alright I would like to begin by saying that Arrow is a pretty cool show, first of all I was shocked to see the trailer when the show was about premiering its pilot episode, this show is a modern take on the popular DC emerald archer, The Green Arrow. It circles around the plot of a billionaire playboy who is shipwrecked to an island for five years and then learns that everything in life ain’t gold(or emerald). While on the island, he trains himself into becoming a master marksman before being rescued by a cruise boat that returns him to his home town, Starling City. By the time he arrives, he sees how his beloved city has succumbed to the greedy grip of wealthy shysters and businessmen, this prompts him to don a new identity and become the green hooded vigilante of Starling City. The show is well into its ninth episode and some memorable characters have popped up so far, but here is a list of characters that have been shown and some that are yet to appear.
- Felicity Smoak
“Hmm I wonder if the arrow is the only piercing thing that the vigilant possesses”
This is your typical know-it-all savvy female technician, except with a pretty funny charm. She is a very intelligent and hardworking worker at Queen Consolidated who is capable of handling almost any IT related issue. I particularly like her for her funny but awkward poise. She has also stood out as an exceptionally character by her fierce courage to tackle mysteries. Watch out for Smoak folks, she is packing the heat for coming episodes.
- Walter Steele
“My current wife killed her former husband who was my best friend, but I am cool with it”
A very calm and smooth talking entrepreneur of the Queen Consolidated, this cool headed fellow seems to know a lot surrounding the death of his friend, Robert Queen, but he won’t rest until he solves the mystery even at his own risk and even after learning that his new wife was involved. Walter Steele might not look much but he is definitely going to be a catalyst in coming episodes.
“I am better than the green arrow, I am certain of it”
Before you all scream for my head, I warned you all about spoilers, now it is not certain yet for me whether Tommy Merlyn or his father would be the infamous league of Shadow assassin, Merlyn. As in current episodes, Arrow encountered a certain copycat whose get-up is mostly black, but then it is revealed that the man behind that mask was Tommy Merlyn’s father, not Tommy himself. But then again, this particular black archer could not be wholly confirmed to be Merlyn from the DC comics. We just have to stay tuned to further stories to unveil the truth.
- China White
“I may not be Lady DeathStrike now, but I still pack a lot of heat”
This Pacific Rim drug lord moves most of the opium that is existing the drug market, she has made many appearances in Arrow, played by Kelly Hu(X2), she has sparred against Oliver several times, and we hope to see more of this “woman without a heart”.
- Constantine Drakon
“Hope this jacket makes me look badass”
This Greek assassin appeared in the pilot episode but seemed to be presumably killed off, its a pity though cause, according to the comics, this is actually one of the few Green Arrow villains that as managed to best the emerald archer in a one on one fight. These are the first five characters that have appeared so far, stay tuned for more uploads soon and leave any comment below. Till next time. Szia.
