Arrow is about billionaire playboy Oliver Queen becoming Arrow the vigilante hero. He has no superpowers, but he is skilled in archery and fighting. Oliver learned his fighting skills while spending five years shipwrecked on Lian Yu, a mysterious island in the North China Sea, before returning home to Starling City

One of his girlfriends is Sara Lance (Canary) was also on the shipwreck and was rescued by Nyssa al Ghul to the island Nanda Parbat. There, Nyssa’s father Ra’s al Ghul trained her to become a super-secret assassin. Sara joined the League of Assasins and she and Nyssa became a couple.
