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.

Origins

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.[5]

Shado takes Emiko to Japan, hoping to take her to a Yakuza Oyabun (godfather) and beg for their lives. Emiko manages to escape her mother and decides to go after the Oyabun herself. The arc also cuts back to her first year with Oliver and their encounter with the Clock King.[6]

Emerald Outlaw

Emiko returned to Seattle, now going by the name "Red Arrow", and saved Oliver, Black Canary and the Seattle Police Department from Scott Notting and the Vice Squad.

Teen Titans

Teen Titans Vol 6 42 Textless Variant

Red Arrow joined the Teen Titans

After Robin offered her to join his new Teen Titans, Emiko agreed to join on the condition that if the team did not convince her she could leave. The team was formed by Robin, Kid Flash, Djinn, Roundhouse and Crush. During one of their first missions, Emiko immediately clashed with Kid Flash, who she thought was very unfocused and cocky.[7] When Roundhouse was believed to have died on a mission[8], Emiko saw it as an opportunity to train the team.[9] Emiko also knew that Damian was locking the villains they've defeated in a makeshift prison beneath Mercy Hall and both deliberately kept the rest of the team in the dark about it.[10]

After capturing Deathstroke, Kid Flash found out about the secret prison Emiko and Damian had[11], Emiko later convinced Wallace to stay on the team while keeping the secret.[12] Unfortunately, Deathstroke and other prisoners freed themselves, revealing the secret to the rest of the team. This lead to Emiko killing Deathstroke.[13] When Emiko and the other titans tried to stop Damian from killing KGBeast after he had already killed brother blood[14], Batman appeared and said that the Teen Titans were done due to Damian's actions.[15] During one of the team's final missions without Robin, Emiko rescued Kid Flash, who was badly injured, and kissed him soon after. The team was later brought to the Titans Tower by the original Titans in order to join their academy.[16]
