Dinah Drake is the second Black Canary after the death of Laurel Lance.
Dinah worked as a CCPD detective using the alias "Tina Boland". On the night of the particle accelerator explosion, Dinah and her partner/boyfriend Vince were discovered and tortured by Sean Sonus' gang, who apparently killed Vince in front of her, causing Dinah to scream in horror and become a metahuman when she was hit by the dark matter, winning the sonic scream power.
She became a well-known vigilante in the city and started to chase and detain several criminals, drawing the attention of Team Arrow, who tried to recruit her to be the new canary. She initially rejected it, but after getting revenge by killing Sonus and all of his allies, she went to Star City and revealed her true identity to Oliver, accepting his offer.
