A billionaire vigilante from Starling City, Oliver was destined to be just another playboy without a care in life until tragedy struck and the plane he was in crashed on an island in the South China sea. His father died there and he survived on the island for five years, where he honed many of his skills. Returned to Starling he vowed to become a better man, to save his city.
*1985: Born in Starling City, in the midst of a rich family, the Queen. His father the owner of Queen Consolidated.
*2001: Spoiled and wealthy, Oliver's first years were those of a brat, the beginning of a vapid playboy that would last until he was lost for years in an island.
*2003: Joins Starling University, financial degree, his playboy reputation already fully established.
*2004: While on a trip with his father on the south china sea their plane crashes. Queen is the only survivor and has to learn how to live on his own for years, fueled by a determination to survive. This was when he began to change from the boy to the man he would become.
*2008: Oliver is back to Starling City. His training made him lethal, and his desire to have revenge on those that framed his father make him become the vigilante Arrow.
*2009: Surrounded by those that would form the core of Team Arrow he becomes focused on Justice, leaving his revenge behind him and becoming the Green Arrow.
*2010: Green Arrow becomes Starling City's protector, starting to inspire others to his cause.
*2012: Oliver joins the Justice League when it is formed. He may be just human but he knows he can be of help.
* 2017: Oliver joins in the fight against Doomsday but tragedy falls with the death of Superman. Vowing to not forget Superman's legacy he makes sure to dedicate himself into protecting Metropolis as well as he can besides Starling.
* 2020: With news popping up, just after Tony Stark's announcement for presidency, that a plane was saved by an unknown hero so similar to Superman it makes Oliver curious enough to investigate. A spark of hope perhaps? Maybe Justice League can rise once again.
Oliver Queen is a man of causes. After his experience on the island he has dedicated himself in being a better man, and helping those around him. He believes in doing everything he can with the skills he has learned while in the island. Along with that he has also turned to various areas he hadn't in the past, be it in politics and also in becoming a successful CEO.
Oliver is someone others can trust. If he can help he will do so, without strings attached. Specially those that are in danger or that he feels have been wronged somehow.
When Oliver returned from his life-threatening experience he found himself always wanting to improve further, to become better both in body and mind. He trains himself to the peak of his abilities and that extends to every part of his life. Focused and committed he is a man that leads by example.
When surrounded by those that share his goals or his interests in the protection of others he can't help but be enthusiastic, jovial. A joy to work with if one gets on his good side. Of course that this doesn't exactly translate to his enemies. He has been known to do whatever it takes to stop someone. And sometimes that means going to extremes.
Morbid Sense of Humor:
He is just a guy with a bow..., and then there is Superman, Green Lantern ..., all those powerhouses. How can he compare? Simple, with humor and making sure he doesn't drag the team down. Sometimes just getting a smile out of someone can be enough to get spirits up. Still, he never feels he is a dead weight on the team.
Oliver had to do many questionable things to survive while on that island. And those still make him have nightmares from time to time. When he returned he was consumed with a thirst for vengeance, but eventually he did come out of it. Became a better man, the true Green Arrow. But with such a long time dwelling in violence it sometimes sips out and he can revert to a violence that is not becoming of a super hero.
Oliver Queen is a master in the art of archery. He has honed his abilities throughout the years, both in the island and beyond. It is a skill that defines him, his ability to land an arrow where he wants to. Some call it zen archery, or zen-intuition. He can place trick arrows with ease, shoot for a quick-kill or simply to disable.
Oliver is a very agile acrobat, something he developped on the island he was stranded on. He is able to perform feats that could compromise or hurt someone with lesser preparation than him. It also means that his body has been honed to it's peak condition, something he makes sure to keep up. He is able to move faster, and striker harder than most normal humans, along with an ability to withstand pain and fatigue that goes beyond normal capability. He is just that determined. He knows he can't relax on his training, he would never wish to become a liability to both his city or the Justice League.
Aviation and Driving:
Oliver has a knack for driving, be it planes or cars. He knows various types of planes and can pilot them comfortably.
Upon his return from the island Oliver found new purpose, both in his life as a vigilante but also a devotion to the business of his family. He is no prodigy but he has made sure that Queen Consolidated is strong and competitive in the business markets. He places the same zeal and focus he has for his vigilantism on his business.
Oliver can cook one mean chilli, some even saying it's one of the hottest dishes they have ever tasted. Is it a way to cover-up when faults he may have in the kitchen? What's true is that his other dishes are often praised and he is quite the natural where it comes to this, often able to prepare a meal in a pinch.
Escrima and Staff:
Oliver has become an expert in escrima fighting, which is based on stick-fighting. It is his default go-to when a fight gets to melee range though he is also able to use his main bow as a staff. By tucking the string into the core he can transition the bow into a staff, making him a fine enough combatant in close quarters, albeit not as good as in ranged of course.
Oliver is an expert in unarmed and armed close combat. He has studied various forms of martial arts, be it judo, kung fu, krav maga. The more effective the better. He doesn't go for flair but to get results, which in this case it's often to get his opponent knocked out before he is. Combined with his skill in medicine he has also learned pressure points to make him more effective on non-lethal blows. This doesn't mean he is a world class combatant, but he can hold his own against a vast majority of opponents.
Oliver doesn't have a formal study on medicine, or anything similar, but he has learned the basics of first aid, herbalism and self-healing. He can identify various natural medicines and poisons at a glance and has a basic idea on general body structure for diagnosis and has picked it up as an hobby after he returned from the island, enough to serve as a field medic when needed. He can handle self treatment, prevent people from bleeding out and treat the average human with some proficiency.
His ordeal on the island made him become a suberb tracker and hunter. He needed to in order to survive but he found he excelled in it. He has the ability to trace and follow both human and animal and complements it with his steady hand on facing them down. With this skill also came the ability to move stealthily, so as to not alert prey to his presence.
To live (and survive) in a world filled with so many superheroes Oliver has learned how to become a tactician, learning how to defeat a superior foe using tactics and strategy. It is what made him able to create and lead a team in Starling.
What billionaire vigilante doesn't have their own cave for all the toys? Oliver has one under Queen Mansion, it serving as a meeting point for the various members of Team Arrow along with serving as a center of computer and information processing. There's also a museum, a gym, a storage depot for all the toys and vehicles.
Oliver has a large set of equipment that he makes use of in missions, including tactical gear, communication and even vehicles. Yet the most common ones are:
Bow - While Oliver has a great number of bows, going from compound bows, short bows, longbows etc, the main one is a compound one. It is versatile enough that it can also transition into a staff if needed during a fight.
Arrows - Oliver has honed and developped a great number of different arrows to use in missions. Be it grappling hook arrows, smoke, explosive, bolas or just the normal sharp ones. To help in choosing the right arrow for the job the quiver he uses is designed to build custom arrows on the fly with modular pieces, with the majority of arrowheads and shafts stored in a central cylinder, and 'produced' out to portions of the side of the quiver as needed. In addition to it's typical use as ammo storage, it also serves as an anchor point for any number of devices and utilities Green Arrow might need; grappling hook arrows, being a typical example. This quiver is neurally controlled via an ear mounted device that serves as a communicator and voice modulator as well, allowing Green Arrow to build or change up his modular arrows with a thought, and to speak to others with an altered voice.
Armor - Green Arrow's costume is an armor that was built for agility, supple enough to allow him freedom of movement but also able to stop a bullet or two if they aren't shot at point blank. Of course that the pain will still be there. There is only so much that technology can do.
Oliver is one of those that inherited most of his fortune. The younger Oliver would had squandered it all but his new self has made sure to invest in his family's company, Queen Consolidated, and continue a major part of it. He has majority shares on the company and leads it, but it's not always accepted without question. He can't simply use the company resources to whatever he wants. But he has enough of a private fortune to compensate.
Oliver is a member of the Justice League, and is always ready to help those in the group in whatever they need. This also makes it so he can go to them for help, or guidance, within reason.
Or if one prefers to call it, his allies. Over the years Oliver has found, and even trained, a number of other vigilantes with the same views he has, keeping Starling and the world safe. In turn they can rely on him to be there when needed.
Green Arrow has been a vigilante for a while now, and as with most vigilantes that gain some notoriety he has attracted a host of criminals that he has fought over the years, many recurring and which often lurk about for an opportunity to harm him or those around him. It makes him have to be extra careful on his day-to-day routine so as to not endanger those he cares for.
The time he spent stranded in that island, along with the ordeals he went through have changed him. To the better in many ways but in others it has left him scarred and haunted with memories of the place. He suffers from PTSD about it, often getting flashbacks of his harsh life and what he had to do to survive. This also translates into nightmares.
Oliver has no special powers to speak of, only his determination and his training (and his cooking). And in a world of super-powered people that can be an hindrance. He has his gadgets, his bow, his team but sometimes there is just too much raw power to handle. He is very aware of this and it is why he keeps a peak condition always, surrounds himself with people he can rely on, be it Team Arrow or Justice League, or other allies he has met on his adventures. But often enough he can be reminded of his mortality.
Oliver and Green Arrow are the same person, but for him it's important that his identity remains secret. There are too many people out there that would do everything to hurt him or those he cares for and that means he often needs to act against his own principles to keep that facade. Including being a vapid, airheaded playboy.
