2002: Roy Harper is born in Arizona. His father is a park ranger and he spends much of his time around the Navajo Nation. He picks up archery at a young age, taught by Brave Bow, a friend of his father's. He also teaches Roy how to track and hunt.

2009: Roy's father is killed in a forest fire, leaving Roy orphaned. Brave Bow takes the boy in since he feels he owes it to his father for saving Brave Bow's life when they were younger.

2011: Brave Bow dies, leaving Roy orphaned for a second time. He goes into the foster care system and bounces around from place to place, a troubled and distant kid. He develops into quite an escape artist at a young age, running away frequently and never able to be kept in one place for long. Athletics is the main reason that he stays in school, though he often gets into trouble.

2014: Roy gains attention for his skills at archery competitions and catches the eye of a new mentor who decides to take him on as a ward and moves him from Arizona to the East Coast.

2015: Under the tutelage of his new mentor, Roy finds some direction in turning his habit of taking things apart and putting them back together again to begin tinkering around with some prototypes of new arrows. He also begins to train with firearms and in swordsmanship, showing an aptitude and focus during practice that helps keep him out of trouble.

2016: Roy doesn't fit in very well at school, getting into trouble once more and struggling academically. He spends some time on the street and gets taken in by kids much older than he is and is introduced to drinking, smoking, and drugs.

2017: Roy's mentor decides that it might be best to enroll Roy in a school with other kids with similar abilities, since he doesn't fit with regular schooling. He hopes that perhaps Roy will find a better fit there and tries to keep in touch with him and be a part of his life, even if that isn't always evident to Roy, himself.

2019: Roy keeps his occasional drug and alcohol use as hidden as he can, but he definitely has a problem with partying to forget his problems. He takes up the codename: Arsenal.

2020: Roy is in the latter half of his Junior year at Happy Harbor Prep and is still struggling with uncertainty of where he fits in, and what the future holds. He spends a lot of time losing himself in training with his impressive arsenal of weapons and developing a plethora of random skills in an effort to avoid bad habits.

Click to expand.

Roy has no problem standing up for what he believes in and facing down something much bigger and stronger than himself if necessary. He will go into danger, put himself at risk, and take one for the team if necessary. He doesn't hesitate if something needs to be done.

Roy's got some issues, but he's also smart, quick witted, and can be gregarious when he wants to be. Sometimes, he takes things a little too lightly for those around him. Sometimes, he can be brooding and serious. His mood changes frequently, and what triggers the change isn't always obvious.

Roy looks out for himself. He doesn't like to depend on others for help and so tries to learn how to do everything on his own as much as possible. He's handy in a jack-of-all trades kind of way, picking up random knowledge and skills whenever he can.

Character Sheet

Roy is purely human and has no metahuman abilities.


Click to expand.

Quick on his feet, maneuverable, and acrobatic, Roy is able to leap, twist, and keep his balance all while firing off shots from his bow or making use of other weapons.

Roy is one of the best archers in the world with incredible precision, speed, and accuracy. His primary weapon is a long bow and he uses it to impressive effect.

Escape Artist:
Slippery, Roy is able to wriggle his way out of all manner of bonds and restraints and is difficult to pin down and keep in one place.

He has created a number of different types of arrows for his bow that can perform a number of different effects including stunning, incendiary, poison, electro-shock, placing beacons, and detonating small explosive charges.

Roy has an assortment of skills that he's picked up along the way through reading, research, and just trying things out for the purpose of taking care of himself without the help of others. He's not great at any of these skills, but he can pick a lock, fix a PC, scrounge on the streets, find hideouts in the city, acquire weapons, drugs, and other odds and ends. He's generally handy with tools.

Master Marksman:
He is also a skilled marksman with firearms ranging from rifles to pistols. Though he favors the bow, he is also capable of firing a pair of pistols or taking down a target at range with a sniper rifle.

Given the nickname Speedy at times, he is both fast with his weapons and fast on his feet, able to run at peak human speeds.

Roy has also learned how to fight with bladed weapons, particularly swords, though this is not his favored weapon, as he prefers to fight at range. Even so, he can go toe to toe in a fight with a blade if he needs to.

He was taught to hunt and track by Brave Bow from the time that he was very young and has since adapted those skills learned in the wilderness to the urban landscape as well, using them to track those he hunts.

Happy Harbor:
Roy was enrolled in Happy harbor by his mentor.

Power Suit:
He possesses a red suit of bullet proof material that was a gift from a previous mentor. It has a power belt to help charge some of his interchangeable arrow heads, and straps for his various weapons, as well as a concealing hood and mask.

Roy's pride and joy is his trusty long bow which is his primary weapon. He has a number of arrows that he has designed with varying effects. He also has access to a pair of rifles, a couple of pistols, and a few other bladed weapons. His small arsenal has been accumulated over time, usually from various enemies. A couple of them were given as gifts by previous mentors. He keeps them hidden away so that he always has something on hand if he needs it.

Roy has trouble with addiction. He hides it, but he drinks, and he does drugs whenever he can manage to get his hands on them to avoid dealing with his feelings.

Roy lost his father at a very young age, his mentor Brave Bow after that, and then the mentor that brought him to the East Coast shipped him off to a boarding school, making him feel abandoned even if it was in his best interest. People don't stick around in Roy's life, and so he has a hard time getting close to or trusting anyone to.

Something To Prove:
He's got a bit of a chip on his shoulder. He's got something to prove -- mainly that he's fine, just fine. He can take care of himself. He doesn't need anyone. And he sure doesn't need super powers to get along in this world.
