Emiko Queen src

Emiko "Emi" Queen is the current Red Arrow[2]. A master archer, and a vigilante who runs around wielding a bow, she is the Green Arrow's half-sister and partner. She is also the assassin Shado's daughter.


Emiko was born to Robert Queen and Shado on Starfish Island. However, as a baby, she was kidnapped by her father's protégé-turned-enemy, Simon Lacroix, better known as Komodo. Lacroix would train Emiko for years with the Outsiders' Arrow clan, leading her to believe he was her father.

Following Komodo's death at her own hands[3], she follows Oliver back to Seattle and joins him as his new protégé (or apprentice, in her own words)[4].

The Death and Life of Oliver Queen

Together with her older half-brother Oliver, she infiltrated the docks to rescue kidnapped children. Black Canary appeared to help them and Emiko revealed she was a fan of Black Canary. All three then went back to Oliver's and Emiko's apartment where Dinah stayed for the night.

Later that day, the assassin Shado sneaks into Oliver's apartment and attacks him. The two get into a scuffle and Oliver orders Emiko to get out of the apartment when she arrives. Instead, she fires an arrow into his back, telling Shado afterwards, that she had been waiting for her mother to arrive.

Together they got onto a boat, took Oliver's body with them, and drove away from the bay of Seattle out to the ocean. When in the middle of nowhere, they threw Oliver's body over the rail, deep down into the ocean. They then traveled to the base built on water called the Inferno, where Shado's masters, the criminal organization called the Ninth Circle operated. After Oliver turned out to be alive, Emiko conducted a plan for the Ninth Circle to capture Dinah, to stop them from going after her mother who had fallen on bad terms with the organization after her failed assassination of Oliver. They lured Dinah to the Inferno where Emiko managed to capture her. When Emiko and Shado were supposed to kill Dinah she instead rescued her revealing that she had been a double agent all the time.

Moments later she met Oliver, who had infiltrated the Inferno, and told him she had been trying to help him all the time. She had slipped a homing beacon into his pocket when she dumped him into the ocean, thus helping Henry Fyff locate Oliver. She had also anonymously contacted John Diggle and had secretly revealed the location of the Inferno to Oliver. Furious over her daughter's betrayal, Shado took Emiko hostage, taking her with her in a helicopter as the Inferno exploded.
