Quote1 I moved to Central City for a fresh start. That's where this happened. And from then, it was just one bad choice after another. And I guess once you let the darkness inside, it never comes out. Quote2

Laurel as Black Siren

Laurel Lance was born and raised in Starling City on Earth-2. At some point in her youth she met Oliver Queen and they feel deeply in love.

In 2007 when Oliver was on a boat trip with his father Robert Queen in the Pacific Ocean, the boat sank and Oliver tragically died while Robert was the only survivor. Afterward a heartbroken Laurel moved to Central City to start a new life. However Laurel never really recovered from Oliver's death and gradually descended into depression and began making regrettable choices.

In 2013 Laurel was one of the many affected by Harrison Wells' particle accelerator and gained the power to emit high frequency screams capable of killing people and destroying entire buildings. Shortly after she was found by Hunter Zolomon/Zoom and fell under his influence, and became a criminal known as Black Siren and one of Hunter's lieutenants.[4]

Life on Earth-1

Zoom brought Laurel to Earth-1 to destroy buildings in Central City and fight the Flash during the "Metapocalypse". Eventually, she was defeated and imprisoned in the Pipeline in the S.T.A.R. Labs, but she was released half a year later by Prometheus to impersonate the Earth-1 Laurel and help him with his revenge against the Green Arrow. She went to Arrowcave and told Oliver that she was "his Laurel" and that she had been resurrected by the Legends, but she ended up being discovered by Felicity, causing Laurel to reveal herself and attack Team Arrow, being arrested soon after. Prometheus helped her escape again. She was about to kill Oliver and Felicity, but Mister Terrific appeared and nullified her powers, so she was knocked out by Felicity. Eventually, she introduced herself Earth-1 Quentin and kidnapped him, taking him to Lian Yu. Laurel fought against Dinah Drake on the island and during the explosion, she was defeated and almost killed, but was saved by Cayden James and joined his criminal organization.
