https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/painkiller_1.jpeg

Species: Human (enhanced via cybernetics)

Known Aliases: Painkiller

Played By: Jordan Calloway

First Appearance: "Lawanda: The Book of Hope" (Black Lightning 1x2)

Appearances: Black Lightning

Jennifer's ex-boyfriend, a high-school track star until he got paralyzed thanks to a gunman from the 100. Tobias comes to to him after his accident to try and turn him against Black Lightning.


  • Adaptation Origin Connection: As a new enforcer for Tobias following reconstructive spinal surgery (courtesy of the ASA), Khalil's Dreadlock Warrior Scary Black Man appearance, who has Super Strength and forearm bracers that fire anethestic syringes, he becomes the show's version of the super villain "Painkiller" from the Black Lightning comics.
  • Affably Evil: Following his Season 3 resurrection, Painkiller takes on a cheerful persona who speaks matter-of-factly about the horrible things the ASA has trained him in. Hits its peak when he questions the ASA sergeant he poisoned while sparring with him about what is going through his mind as he dies as he's become philosophically interested in the idea of how his victims feel.
  • All for Nothing: He joined up with Tobias because Tobias gave him gifts and the use of his legs. In the end he can't go through with being an effective criminal and Tobias rips his artificial spine out, making him a cripple once again.
  • Anti-Hero: As of Season 4, he tries to do good, but has no problem with killing or brutally interrogating people, even outside of his Painkiller persona.
  • Apologetic Attacker: Played with: when confronted by Jennifer about his "killing" Black Lightning, he admits he actually likes Black Lightning and didn't want to kill him but that he was and still is under Tobias's thumb.
  • Ascended Extra: In the comics, Painkiller wasn't a particularly big villain having been killed off in his fourth appearance. In this show, he has a connection to the Pierce family via his relationship with Jennifer (a character created a decade after his death and whom he had never even met) as well as being one of Tobias's enforcers.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Once he begins to lash out at everyone following his paralysis, Jefferson speculates that's who he is truly after he lost everything. Subverted in season 2 after he becomes nicer and starts to chafe under Tobias' thumb.
  • Breakout Character: Set to receive his own spin-off after a Backdoor Pilot in Season 4.
  • Came Back Strong: Following his resurrection by the ASA, Khalil now has a Touch of Death and knowledge of numerous martial arts to make him the perfect killing machine.
  • Came Back Wrong: He is resurrected by the ASA and made completely obedient via a brain chip. He is ordered to kill his mother by Odell, which he does without any hesitation.
  • Canon Character All Along: He's actually the Black Lightning Rogues Gallery member Painkiller.
  • Character Death: Dies in episode 11 of season 2. But then he gets resurrected in Season 3...
  • Co-Dragons: Becomes this to Whale alongside Syonide after becoming enhanced.
  • Disabled in the Adaptation: As far as the comics go, Painkiller never suffered any kind of spinal surgery.
  • Dreadlock Warrior: As Painkiller. They are cut when he runs away with Jennifer.
  • Dream-Crushing Handicap: He had plans to become a professional athlete, but those plans got derailed when he got shot in the spine, leaving him unable to walk.
  • Dude, Where's My Reward?: As part of his fall from grace he gives Jennifer a vicious rant on how he spent his entire life "doing everything right", and then God decided to take away the use of his legs.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: Even at his worst, he still loves his mother.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: Starts out clean cut, but he has relatively long dreads when he reappears as one of Tobias' enforcers after getting reconstructive spinal surgery. The In-Universe explanation is that his hair grew extremely fast as a side effect of the drugs he took to recover, but it's ultimately meant to symbolize that he's no longer the straight edge student he used to be.
  • Expy: As a reference to Biblical motifs, Khalil represents Job, a good, prosperous man whom Satan (with God's permission) beset one disaster after another on Job's life in order to test whether he abandons his faith in God. Unlike Job, Khalil doesn't have the strength to continue keeping his faith when events turn his life against him, thus succumbs to Tobias' temptations.
    • In Season Two, when he finally leaves Tobias he becomes the Prodigal Son.
  • Forced into Evil: He doesn't actually want to work for Tobias, but feels he has no other choice since Tobias would kill him if he tried to leave. This eventually happens.
  • Foreshadowing: Although it wasn't apparent that he becomes the show's version of Painkiller, the first meeting between him and Tobias Whale contains the following dialogue.
    Tobias: If you'd like, I can show you how to kill your pain.
  • Heel Realization: When Tobias orders him to kill Reverend Holt, Khalil begins to regret his choice of working for him, as he's known the reverend for years and his mother goes to that same church. When he realizes Whale himself was the man behind the shooting that caused his paralysis, Khalil tries to find a way out.
  • I Know Kung-Fu: The chip that Odell uses to control Khalil also possesses a large database of knowledge including anatomy, philosophy and 23 different martial arts disciplines.
  • Meaningful Name: His surname "Payne" foreshadows his transformation into the super villain Painkiller].
  • Named by the Adaptation: Painkiller in the comics never had a given name; instead, this version of the villain is named Khalil Payne.
  • Nice Guy: He's sweet, respectful, has a good head on his shoulders, and deeply cares about Jennifer. Subverted following his paralysis. And then played straight again after his Heel Realization.
  • Poisonous Person: The implant used for Khalil's spinal surgery has given him an additional paralytic substance that he can extract and weaponize into syringes fired from his forearm bracers. After being resurrected by the ASA, he can now administer this substance into a person's system via touch with varying degrees of lethality.
  • Redemption Equals Death: He eventually revolts against Tobias, and despite his and Jennifer's best efforts to stay ahead of the villain, is ultimately killed by him.
  • Sadistic Choice: In Season 2, he is forced into one, when Tobias orders a hit on Reverend Holt. Either he kills the man who has supported his mother's community for years, or Tobias will retaliate against him and his loved ones. He decides to Take a Third Option and runs away with Jennifer.
  • Secret Keeper: He is the only one besides her family, who knows about Jennifer's powers.
  • Self-Made Orphan: He kills his mother on Odell's orders after being resurrected.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: His Painkiller personality, created by the ASA, which stays in his head after Khalil is eventually brought back and keeps fighting for control of his body. It eventually breaks out again. Though in Season 4, it is more portrayed as a Tragic Monster, who does what he does not out of malice, but because of his programming.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: After his accident and thanks to Tobias' toxic influence, he blames Jennifer for his current state and God for punishing him even though he did everything right in life.
  • Tragic Villain:
    • A promising student with a bright athletic future ahead of him whose life ends up destroyed because of the harsh reality of Freeland, then ends up being manipulated into becoming a thuggish enforcer for the group that ruined his life to begin with.
    • Doubly so for Painkiller, who tells Khalil in Season 4 that he feels constant pain due to never fulfilling the kill command that Odell gave him for the Pierces. He later even cries, feeling regret for having killed their mom, almost committing suicide out of grief. Khalil clearly feels sorry for him, and promises to find a way to free them both from their situation.
  • Troubled Teen: Albeit dealing with tough issues in a fantastic setting. This isn't really set in until he lost the ability to walk and then ended up as Tobias's lackey.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Was a genuine Nice Guy before suffering a Dream-Crushing Handicap and then being subjected to Tobias' influence.
  • Wild Card:
    • After regaining control over Painkiller and shooting Odell non-fatally in the Season 3 finale, he leaves the scene, presumably still too guilt-ridden to return to his friends.
    • During his Backdoor Pilot in Season 4, he still struggles with his Painkiller persona, but firmly tries to do good.

Click here to see her in Vixen 

Species: Human (Empowered via Spirit Totem)

Known Aliases: Vixen

Voiced and Played by: Megalyn Echikunwoke, Kimberly Brooks (child, voice)

First Appearance: Vixen Season 1, Episode 1 (animation), "Taken" (Arrow 4x15, live-action)

Appearances: Vixen | Arrow | Freedom Fighters: The Ray

A woman with the ability to channel different animal powers and the eponymous main character of Vixen.


  • Action Girl: She's the Arrowverse's first female lead hero after all. And it's not just the amulet, as shown by the end of the first season when her amulet is stolen by an enemy and she defeats her despite being powerless and having recently recovered from a venomous spider bite.
  • Adaptational Modesty: Her comic counterpart's costume is (in)famous for having a very long V-neck line that shows off her Absolute Cleavage. Here she's all covered up.
  • Alliterative Name: Mari McCabe.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: She is rather rigid and speaks in a deadpan manner.
  • Ancient Artifact: Her powers stem from the Anansi Totem, a magical amulet passed down her family line. The necklace allows her to harness the life force of animals, in essence harnessing their abilities.
  • Animal-Themed Superbeing: Her totem gives her all kinds of animal powers including gorilla strength, rhino charge, cat agility and bird flight.
  • Badass Boast: See her above quote.
  • Battle Aura: Whenever a user taps into the totem's power, the animal chosen briefly appears as an incorporeal or astral projection; it is blue for Amaya, purple for Mari.
  • The Beast Master: Uses her abilities to communicate with and dominate two opposing guard dogs, then employs them to distract some cops.
  • The Bus Came Back: After being absent from The 'Verse since mid-Arrow Season 4, she re-appears in the second season of Freedom Fighters: The Ray.
  • Cain and Abel: Her first enemy is her sister, Kuasa.
  • Celebrity Paradox: An episode of The Flash mentions the CSI franchise. Her actress was a main cast member on CSI: Miami.
  • Contralto of Danger: She has a very low voice and is one badass fighter.
  • Contrasting Sequel Main Character: Unlike Oliver and Barry she is a one woman operation; she doesn't have a support team or the resources that Palmer Tech provide Team Arrow and that STAR Labs provide Team Flash. All she has is her totem and her stepdad, Chuck for support.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She definitely qualifies.
    Prof. Macalester: "So you actually witnessed him use the totem to control fire?"
    Mari(bandages over her burns): "No. I just burned myself on a curling iron."
  • Demoted to Extra: Due her actress having other commitments, she's been essentially sidelined in favor of her grandmother Amaya for all the live-action shows.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Subverted, her guest episode on "Arrow" was meant to set her up for joining the Legends in Season Two, but since her actress had other commitments she was replaced by her Canon Foreigner grandmother Amaya instead.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: Her hair is much longer in her live-action appearances.
  • Faux Action Girl: Only on Arrow. She first appears tracking down ordinary thugs, but Oliver ends up rescuing her when one of them nearly shoots her in the back of the head. Then, when she's called in to deal with Damien Darhk herself she gets her ass handed by him almost effortlessly. The only remotely badass thing she does in her episode is shatter Damien's totem, which is the source of his power. Of course, given her powers, her presence can leads into a Story-Breaker Power.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: Her initial relationship with Barry, Oliver, and the others heroes was quite frosty, due to a misunderstanding (she assumed that Barry and Oliver wanted to arrest her, they just wanted to help her understand her powers). A few adventures however made them all bosom friends. Even if Mari prefers to stay in Detroit, if they ask for her help she will gladly come.
  • Flight: One of her powers, from channeling the spirit of a bird.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: Joins Team Arrow to rescue Oliver's son from Damien Darhk in "Taken".
  • Happily Adopted: While she's a bit resentful of her father at first, she admits this after some Character Development. Notably when her dead ancestors appear in the sixth episode, her adopted mother is among them.
  • Hero of Another Story: She's the main character of her own series.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: Inverted. She first appeared in her eponymous animated show before appearing here in live-action. In fact, the character was modeled after Echikunwoke in the first place just in case they were able to work in an appearance on another show.
  • Kung-Fu Wizard: Downplayed since her magic is centered on enhancing her physical abilities, but still fits as her use of magic is why Team Arrow goes to her for help against Damien Dahrk, and her familiarity with mystical artifacts proves key to figuring out the source of his powers.
  • Legacy Character: Her grandmother used the totem before her, who appears on Legends of Tomorrow thanks to Time Travel.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: She has no idea her grandmother used the same moniker and outfit, and is traveling in time with some of her friends.
  • Moveset Clone: She, her sister Kuasa, and their grandmother Amaya have the same powerset via the totem.
  • Present Absence: She has yet to show up in Legends of Tomorrow, but she casts a long shadow with her connection to the team via her grandmother is an important plot point, especially when Kuasa becomes a major villain in Season 3. Amaya knows she'll eventually have to leave the Legends and go back to her village so Mari and Kuasa can be born .... but her romance with Nate complicates that immensely as she's torn between the man she loves and the family she knows she's destined to have.
  • Remember the New Guy?: If you don't know about the first two seasons of the web-short, then chances are you have no idea who the hell she is, how she came across Oliver, Barry or Laurel.
  • Sassy Black Woman: She's definitely this, being feisty and snarky.
  • Small Steps Hero: Unlike the larger conflicts the other heroes find themselves in, Mari's main focus is protecting Detroit from ordinary street criminals (or in one case not so ordinary), but we'll help out if called upon.
  • Super Senses: She can catch a person's scent similarly to a bloodhound by channelling the spirit of a wolf or a bear. She can also enhance her sight and auditory senses by channelling a bird of prey.
  • Super Strength: By summoning the spirit of a gorilla, a rhino or an elephant, she gains this becoming incredibly strong. Damien Darhk has quite a challenge repelling her power.
  • Super Toughness: She withstood crashing into a steel gate by channeling an armadillo.
  • Token Minority: She's adopted by the Caucasian McCabe couple.
  • Uncertain Doom: Her grandmother refuses to go back to 1942 and opts to stay with the Legends, so what will happen to Mari is up in the air. Eventually subverted in that Amaya goes back to 1942 before time solidifies after seeing a newscast about her granddaughter ... only to rejoin the Legends when she's having trouble with her totem. No longer the case as of Season 3, where Amaya permanently stays in Zambezi and history is changed so that the village was never destroyed.

A physics professor living in Ivy Town, revealed to be the Paragon of Humanity, who helps the others save the multiverse during Crisis.

see Arrowverse: Future Characters page to see his potential future self
see DCEU: Smallville And Metropolis page for the character in an Undesignated Earth who bears his name and background

  • Action Survivor: He had no combat training before, but he still defends himself decently against the Shadow Demons.
  • Ascended Fanboy: He is ecstatic to meet his idol Ray Palmer and equally excited to meet real superheroes like Elongated Man. He also gets the chance to be a hero himself.
  • Asian and Nerdy: Fits both credentials.
  • The Chosen One: Unlike the other Paragons, he was not a hero when he got sought out as a Paragon.
  • Continuity Snarl: Ryan was previously mentioned by Nora as one of Barry's friends in the future. However, due to constant meddling with time by both the various speedsters and the Legends, his fate and status were frequently changing until the Crisis.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Joins the ranks of Ray Palmer, Cisco, and even Lex Luthor as another esteemed inventor.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: For the time being, he's only appeared as an ally during Crisis, but he's been mentioned by Team Flash with assisting them offscreen with various experiments.
  • Minored In Ass Kicking: Despite having no powers, gadgets, or formal combat training, he doesn’t fare too bad against the Shadow Demons.
  • Papa Wolf: He shields his daughter from a Shadow Demon during the Crisis.
  • Refused the Call: When the heroes first come to recruit him, he finds the idea of him being a Paragon to be ludicrous and states he is no hero. Iris does talk him into joining though.
  • Reluctant Hero: At first he Refused the Call, saying that if it was the end of the world then he would prefer to spend it with his family. However Iris eventually talks him into joining.
  • Science Hero: What he lacks in powers, he makes up for in scientific prowess.
  • The Team Normal: Even more so than the usual Badass Normals who fit this trope. Ryan is the only Paragon who has no powers, gadgets, or any formal combat training. He isn’t even a hero and is just a regular guy, hence his role as Paragon of Humanity.
  • Young Future Famous People: If Nora's lead to believe, he helps design one of The Flash's best suits and becomes one of Barry's best friends.

    Sydney Palmer 

Sydney Palmer

Species: Human

Appearances: Legends of Tomorrow

Ray's twin brother.


  • Adaptation Name Change: Ray Palmer's brother in the comics is named Danny.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Ray's dialogue implies that they've never really gotten along.
  • The Ghost: He doesn't actually appear in the episode he's first mentioned in. Justified, as the episode was set 150 years after the present day; Sydney would have been long dead by then. Less justified in "Phone Home" which takes place during Ray's childhood and he's nowhere to be seen.
  • Jerkass: He hijacked his presumed dead brother's legacy, taking credit for the founding of Palmer Tech. Doesn't exactly paint the nicest picture of the guy.
  • Our Founder: Palmer Tech keeps a bust of him in their foyer by 2147.
  • Remember the New Guy?: Ray never mentioned having a brother before the team's arrival in 2147.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: He and Ray look very much alike, to the point that Ray himself mistook a bust of Sydney for one of himself. It is heavily implied that they are twins, though.

"As I told you, everyone in here is a monster"

Species: Human

Played by: Richard Brooks

First Appearance: "Tricksters" (The Flash 1x17)

Appearances: The Flash

The corrupt Warden of the Iron Heights Prison of Keystone City.


  • Adaptational Villainy: The comics version of Wolfe was tyrannical and ruthless towards his prisoners, and had little love for those who showed them sympathy (like the Flash). But on rare occasions, he proved that he was a good man underneath it all. This version is utterly corrupt, making deals with a known criminal for money.
  • Adaptation Species Change: In the comics, Wolfe is a metahuman, able to mentally affect the muscles of those around him. Here, he's just a normal human.
  • Asshole Victim: DeVoe kills him for interfering with his plans. Nobody sheds a tear.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: He provides Amunet with metahumans to experiment on.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: To the world he's the respectable, but hardened warden of the most feared prison in the Mid-West, but in reality he uses his position to traffic meta-human prisoners to line his own pockets.
  • Celebrity Paradox: The Law & Order franchise is mentioned during The Flash Season 2. His actor was an original cast member of the parent series.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Had a camera focused on Barry's cell, and after finding out that he is the Flash he gave a narcotic into one of his puddings.
  • Death by Secret Identity: He gets killed by DeVoe shortly after he finds out Barry is the Flash.
  • Exact Words: He wasn't kidding when he told Barry that everybody in his prison is a monster.
  • Pet the Dog: Even considering ulterior motives, he does seem to give a few genuine tips to Barry on surviving prison life.
  • Punny Name: Gregory Wolfe, a wolf in sheep's clothing.
  • Scary Black Man: The way he warns Barry about not trying to be a hero is already unsettling, but when he shows his true colors it's downright creepy.
  • Superhuman Trafficking: This is his line of work other than his job at the prison; smuggling out metahuman inmates so that he can sell them off.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Gets posthumously called a hero by Mayor Van Buren although he was trying to sell metahumans to Amunet Black before being murdered. By the time of Season 5 however, his corruption has been uncovered.
  • Wardens Are Evil: A meta human trafficker and a warden.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: He only has four appearances before he's killed.

  • Big Man on Campus: His biggest claim to fame and wanting to relive it as much as possible with the Still Force.
  • Career-Ending Injury: He suffered one, forcing him to retire.
  • It's All About Me: He doesn't care about the suffering others go through, just his own.
  • Jerkass: The loss of his career hasn't humbled him in the slightest.
  • Large Ham: He's not particularly subtle in his theatrics.
  • Mundane Utility: What does he do with the near-unlimited potential to control time? Relive his glory days.
  • Power Glows: The Still Force's aura is green.
  • Time Master: He can control time to an absurd degree.

Kara’s foster mother and a brilliant geneticist.

see Superman Film Series for Kara Zor-El, the Earth-96 character who bears her physical likeness
see Smallville: Kryptonians for Lara El, the Earth-167 character who bears her physical likeness

  • Adaptation Name Change: In the Silver Age comics, Supergirl's adoptive mother was named Edna Danvers and was named Sylvia in the Peter David Supergirl comics, instead of Eliza.
  • Almighty Mom: Was fair but firm with her daughters during their teenage years, and even today, is a constant source of wisdom and support for the two.
  • And Starring: Is credited with a "Special Guest Star" citation.
  • Big Damn Hero: She comes to the rescue in "Medusa", curing Mon-El and J'onn of their respective maladies in less than 24 hours of receiving a vector from which to work from.
  • Hot Scientist: She's a scientist and is definitely not bad-looking.
  • Mama Bear: When the real Hank Henshaw attempts to claim Kara for the DEO, she is his most adamant opposition.
  • Motherly Scientist: Literally for Kara, as she helped both her and her cousin adjust to Earth while also studying them.
  • Parental Favoritism: Eliza gets accused of this, due to always treating Kara with kid gloves while pushing Alex to protect her. She had a very good reason for this.
  • Silver Vixen: Even at her age note , Dr. Danvers would still turn quite a few heads.
  • Team Mom: When ever she's involved with the DEO, she takes this role. Often does so outside this capacity for Kara and Alex's friends as well.
  • Widow Woman: So it seemed due to Jeremiah not returning after the confrontation with Henshaw. She becomes a widow for real after Jeremiah died in Peru.

Rick Malverne

Species: Human

Portrayed By: David Hoflin, Zayne Emory (teenager)

First Appearance: "Manhunter" (Supergirl 1x17)

Appearances: Supergirl

A former classmate of Kara and Alex.


  • Abusive Parents: His mother beat him, so he became extremely attached to his father when he got her out of his life.
  • Adaptation Name Change: Goes by Rick instead of Dick.
  • Adaptational Villainy: His comic book counterpart was a Love Interest to Supergirl in her civilian identity. This guy kidnapped Alex to blackmail Kara. He's called a terrorist multiple times.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Appeared in a Season One flashback before showing up as a Villain of the Week in Season Two's present day.
  • Disappeared Dad: Until he got him back from his mom. For which he is grateful, to the point of trying to break him from jail through very amoral means.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Introduced through a flashback in Season One before formally appearing as a villain in Season Two.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He loves his father.
  • Evil Former Friend: His introduction through a flashback in Season One shows him being cozy with the Danvers sisters. Kara even regretfully mentions all the decent things he has done for her and Alex before officially branding him as an enemy.
  • Evil Genius: He's no dummy and did his research before enacting his plan. He even knew about J'onn and saw through him posing as his dad almost instantly.
  • Ironic Name: Meta example. He's originally named Dick in the comics. With his Adaptational Villainy, it would have been more appropriate.
  • Knight of Cerebus: He is one of the very few villains in Supergirl to not play into the campiness of the old Superman comics, which makes the scenes with him so much more terrifying, particularly that he's accounted for everything the heroes have thrown at him despite having no powers himself.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He manages to convince Maggie to break his father out of jail when Kara won't.
  • Stalker Without a Crush: He watched Alex and Maggie from afar for a very long time until he was ready to kidnap Alex.
  • Stealth Pun: A comics character named Dick renamed Rick who was given Adaptational Villainy. In short, he's essentially still a dick.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Kara regretfully recounts how much of a decent person he was during junior high.

Appearances: The Flash (2014)

Head of a major criminal empire and new employer of Esperanza Garcia.


  • Affably Evil: He is quite jovial and easy-going, even towards his enemies. He is also willing to destroy an entire city, killing millions, as a mere demonstration during an auction.
  • Auction of Evil: Hosts one to find anyone willing to buy a Kill Sat dubbed "Ring of Fire".
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: Well, yeah, obviously. Had he killed Ralph and Barry directly, they wouldn't have foiled his plans.
  • Evil Is Hammy: What else would you expect from a Bond villain Expy?
  • Expy: For many Bond villains but Goldfinger in particular.
  • Graceful Loser: Congratulates Barry and Ralph on a "wunderbar" performance after they defeat him.
  • Gratuitous German: Throws in a lot of (horribly pronounced) German words.
  • Secret Identity Apathy: Doesn't even bother unmasking Barry when he has him captured. This proves to be his undoing, as Ralph's plan to foil him wouldn't have worked had he known Barry was the Flash.

  • Long-Lost Relative: Mary is Winn's mother, who was not seen hitherto.

Appearances: Legends of Tomorrow

A barkeeper from New Orleans with whom John Constantine fell in love during 2018. When the demon Neron came for John, Desmond made a deal behind his back to take him instead, resulting in the warlock sending them both to hell.


  • Affectionate Nickname: John calls him "Dez".
  • Break His Heart to Save Him: What John does to him in a changed timeline, telling him that he used him for sex and was never in love with him in order to stop him from making a deal with Neron. Unfortunately, it ends up breaking the timeline and John has to undo it.
  • Deal with the Devil: Made a deal with Neron to keep John safe. Unfortunately, that meant being banished back to the underworld alongside with the demon...

  • Satellite Love Interest: Not much is known about him besides being John's ex.
  • Straight Gay: One wouldn't be able to tell his orientation if he wasn't dating Constantine.

Played by: Shivaani Ghai

First Appearance: "Bat Girl Magic!" (Batwoman 2x3)

Appearances: Batwoman

A mysterious woman with ties to Alice and other criminal activities in Gotham. She is the ruler of Coryana, a secluded island nation.


  • Adaptational Backstory Change: Her relationship to Kate in the comics has been transferred wholesale (with some additional changes) to Alice.
  • Adaptational Badass: She wasn't really a physical threat in the comics, but here knows enough grappling techniques to reverse a surprise attack.
  • Adaptation Expansion: Here, she has at least two aliases she didn't have in the comics, as well as false passports from various countries.
  • Alliterative Name: Safiyah Sohail.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: One of the main antagonists of Batwoman Season 2, alongside Black Mask.
  • The Ghost: Does not appear in the first season of Batwoman, despite being mentioned multiple times. She finally shows up in the second season.

    Tatiana the Whisper 

Tatiana the Whisper

Species: Human

Played by: Leah Gibson

First Appearance: "Prior Criminal History" (Batwoman 2x2)

Appearances: Batwoman

Safiyah's right-hand woman.


  • Adaptational Name Change: In the Batwoman comics, she's a Nigerian woman named Tahani with the codename "The Knife". Here, she's a Russian woman with the codename "The Whisper".
  • Adaptational Wimp: Tahani, her main comic counterpart, is perhaps the closest thing that Kate Kane has to a true Arch-Enemy in the source material, acting as both a physical and mental challenge for Batwoman. In the show, Tatiana's not nearly as clever nor as tough or skilled in fighting.
  • Composite Character: Her role in the story is that of Tahani, AKA "The Knife," from Batwoman (Rebirth), while her general appearance and nickname are taken from Whisper A'Daire, an Intergang agent from 52.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Tatiana is the one that framed Safiyah for Kate's murder and for killing Alice's gang, in the hopes that Alice would be eliminated once she struck back, as she was jealous of Safiyah's feelings for her.
  • Offscreen Villainy: She killed Alice's Gang to start a feud between her and Safiyah.
  • Race Lift: Her comic book counterpart is a black woman. She, on the other hand, is white.

    Ocean 

Ocean

Species: Human

Played by: Nathan Owens

First Appearance: "Fair Skin, Blue Eyes" (Batwoman 2x4)

Appearances: Batwoman

A former student of Safiyah Sohail who was involved with Beth Kane during their time together on Coryana.


  • Amnesiac Lover: Alice recalls at the end of the episode that she and Ocean had been involved on Coryana, though neither of them can remember how and why.
  • Assassin Outclassin': Easily does this to Alice, who is sent by Safiyah to kill him. Later Alice and Ocean team up to defeat the Many Arms of Death.
  • Cain and Abel: While they are not blood-related, Ocean still refers to Safiyah as his sister. After she felt he betrayed her for Alice however, she wanted him dead.
  • Do Wrong, Right: He knocks out Alice, then criticizes her for her sloppy technique, as if she wanted him dead she had a dozen opportunities to do the deed with far more grace than her clumsy attempt to break into his place. Of course, Alice could have done those things, but she wanted to talk to him to investigate why she suddenly remembers him.
  • Enemy Mine: He reluctantly accepts Alice's help against the Many Arms of Death and then goes on the run with her.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Like Alice, his memories have been tampered with; they were lovers on Coryana five years ago, but they don't remember a thing about each other. Turns out Safiyah deleted their memories after they planned on leaving with oner of her plants.
  • Not Quite Dead: Alice reluctantly stabs him when Safiyah makes her choose between him and Kate. The knife she uses is treated with Desert Rose though, so he quickly recovers.

First Appearance: "The Calm" (Arrow 3x1)

Appearances: Arrow

Maseo's wife and the mother of his child Akio. She is a master swordswoman and wields a katana that has been passed down through her family for generations.

see DCEU: Task Force X - Officials and Agents for the character in an undesignated Earth who bears her name and background

  • Action Mom: You hurt her son and she'll kick your ass.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: She seems to not like Oliver.
  • Ancestral Weapon: An ancient Masamune blade. It has been passed down her family through the first son for generations (apparently there was no son in hers).
  • Badass Normal: She killed a member of the League of Assassins. One must be to even require to be a member.
  • Battle Couple: With Maseo if the situation calls for it.
  • The Bus Came Back: She makes a return in the final season for an episode.
  • Celebrity Paradox: Game of Thrones is acknowledged to exist in this universe during an episode of The Flash (2014). Her actress starts appearing on that show around the same time she's still appearing on Arrow.
  • Comic-Book Movies Don't Use Codenames: Even after she dons the Iconic Outfit, she's never once refereed to as "Katana".
  • Cradling Your Kill: How she killed Maseo.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: She's originally from Japan, and the way she pointedly dodges any questions about why she's now living in Hong Kong definitely implies this.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: To Oliver eventually. Their relationship is much better in the present day scenes.
  • Died in Your Arms Tonight: Poor Tatsu has to see her husband and child die in her hands on two different occasions.
  • Emotionless Girl: Rarely changes her expression or the tone of her voice, but still makes it clear that she's not a fan of Oliver.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: She's sporting a shorter and more wavier hair in the present day scenes.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: While initially dismayed at Oliver's presence due to Waller's machinations, he eventually earns her trust due to him helping her family every way he can.
  • Ice Queen: Toward Ollie mostly.
  • Iconic Sequel Character: Does not appear in the series until Season 3.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Her Weapon of Choice, for obvious reasons.
  • Kill the Ones You Love: She was forced to kill Maseo at the penultimate episode of Season 3.
  • Lady of War: She's composed even as she slaughters 10 Triad goons with nothing but a katana.
  • Mama Bear: Got very angry and broke out the katana when China White burst into their apartment and threatened her son.
  • Misplaced Retribution: She makes it very clear that she hates Oliver staying with them and wants him gone, ignoring that he wants to be anywhere else more, even back on the island if possible. She never seems to bring up the fact that Waller is forcing her husband to keep him there.
  • Necromancer: Maseo implies this, saying she's the one who brought Oliver Back from the Dead.
  • Outliving One's Offspring: She lost her child Akio to the virus in Hong Kong.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Oliver. Out of all the attractive women Oliver met on his five years away from home, she was the only one he never had any romantic tension/relations with. This was because Tatsu was already married to Oliver's friend and handler Maseo.
  • Tomboyish Name: Tatsu is commonly used by males in Japan.
  • Warrior Therapist: She serves as this to Maseo during her and Team Arrow's assault on Nanda Parbat.
  • Widow Woman: Albeit reluctantly, she kills Maseo.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: Japanese? Check. Calm reserved manner? Check. Dedicated and obedient to her family? Check. Dangerous in defense of her family? Check!

Mei

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mei_fei.jpg

Species: Human

Played By: Celina Jade

First Appearance: "The Offer" (Arrow 3x16)

Appearances: Arrow

The other daughter of Yao Fei and Shado's twin sister living in Hong Kong. She's been wondering what happened to her father and twin sister, who disappeared three years prior her meeting with Oliver.


  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Is very wary of Oliver when she met him.
  • Angsty Surviving Twin: Played with. She does grieve her twin sister and father's disappearance and believes that they're dead. Once Oliver confirmed it, she cried but was finally able to find closure and move on with her life.
  • Canon Foreigner: Shado doesn't have a twin in the comics.
  • Contrived Coincidence: The person who knew her father and twin sister happens to bump into her in a market place just as said person was being chased by some (foreign) secret government organization agents.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: She's initially quite wary of Oliver but eventually warms up to him.
  • Disappeared Dad: She doesn't know that he was stranded on a not-so Deserted Island where he met his end.
  • Identical Twins: With Shado.
  • Light Feminine Dark Feminine: Zig-Zagged. This is invoked by their clothes; Shado wore mostly gray and black (though justified due to being stranded on a not-so Deserted Island and all) and was quite an Action Girl and The Lad-ette, while Mei herself wore mostly white and acts more feminine. However, Mei is rightfully savvy not to trust strangers (in her case Oliver) compared to Shado who trusted the wrong person (Edward Fyers) which resulted to a lot of shit which ultimately led to her death.
  • Military Brat: Her father was a (former) General in the Chinese army.
  • Missing Mom: Her mother is never mentioned.
  • Neutral Female: Yao Fei apparently didn't trained her the same way he did Shado or she's just not a fighter. Either way, she just hid with Akio while Oliver solely took care of Waller's A.R.G.U.S.' squad pursuing him and the kid until Maseo and Tatsu arrived.
  • Parental Abandonment: It was never stated what happened to her and Shado's Missing Mom, but we all know what happened to Yao Fei...
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Appears much more feminine than her Tomboyish Action Girl twin.
  • Uncertain Doom: Shortly after Oliver sees her, the Alpha/Omega virus outbreak happened. As of Season 4, her fate is not yet revealed.
  • Walking Spoiler: Her entire existence can be spoiler-y if you haven't seen Season 2 or/and the latter half of Season 3.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: It is unknown what happened to her after the Alpha/Omega virus outbreak in Hong Kong near the end of Arrow Season 3.

Kaznia

    Red Daughter / "Linda Lee" 

Kara Zor-El

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/russkara.png

Species: Kryptonian Clone

Known Aliases: Snowbird, Red Daughter, Linda Lee, "Supergirl"

Portrayed By: Melissa Benoist

First Appearance: "Battles Lost and Won" (Supergirl 3x23)

Appearances: Supergirl

A clone of Kara Danvers who came to exist when the original Kara went back in time and utilized the Harun-El in order to defeat Reign. She landed in Kaznia and wound up working with its soldiers on an unknown agenda.


  • Alliterative Name: As Linda Lee.
  • Ambiguously Evil: So far, she hasn't done anything villainous per se, but it is clear that the Kaznians controlling her are up to no good. It's later shown that she is basically just as heroic as Kara, but unfortunately Lex manages to manipulate her into becoming his lackey.
  • Amnesiacs are Innocent: All Red Daughter remembers is the name "Alex" and a desire to help others. Lex takes advantage of both to get her on his side.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: She has this initially, but since she can't control her powers the results are ... messy.
  • Does Not Know His Own Strength: Initially, given that she's a clone created not too long ago.
  • The Dragon: Becomes Lex's enforcer after the latter managed to manipulate her long enough.
  • Evil Knockoff: Played With. She is a clone of Kara created to do Lex's bidding, but she herself is not an evil.
  • Fusion Dance: She merges with Kara after Lex fatally injures her.
  • Gender Flip: She is based off the Red Son, who is a copy of Superman rather than of Supergirl.
  • Genius Bruiser: In addition to her vast physical power, she is incredibly smart, reading through the books sent to her very quickly and later recalling passages to near-perfection. She also shows an emotional intelligence and insight that nearly derails Lex Luthor's manipulations, recognizing Kara's compassion and Lex's motives of envy and ambition.
  • Hidden Villain: Outside of the Kaznia military, no one knows there exists a clone of Supergirl that is being used by the military to be their weapon.
  • Mythology Gag: While Kara Danvers underwent an Adaptation Name Change, her comic name Linda Lee instead went to Red Daughter.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between: She's the in between to Supergirl's nice and Overgirl's mean.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Delivers a vicious one to Kara, her additional powers certainly helping.
  • No Name Given: Initially, there wasn't an official name for the clone, but press releases have called her character Red Daughter, a Shout-Out to the Superman story of Superman: Red Son. Lex later calls her that himself. Red Daughter also uses the alias "Linda Lee", as a homage to the Silver Age.
  • Obliviously Evil: She is genuinely good, sweet, and compassionate, but she's manipulated to serve the agenda of Lex Luthor.
  • Redemption Equals Death: After discovering Luthor's treachery and initially being subdued by him, she later escapes and saves Kara from him, taking a full Kryptonite blast that fatally injures her. Before she succumbs to her wounds, she merged into Kara.
  • Rousseau Was Right: Despite having been created from the Harun-El, she is not villainous like Reign and has the same drive to protect the innocent as Kara; she's simply being led down the wrong path by Lex.
  • Sensory Overload: Happens when she's exposed to yellow sunlight, resulting in Power Incontinence.
  • Super-Speed Reading: She reads all of the books Lex Luthor gives to her in this fashion.
  • Unwitting Pawn: To Lex.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Lex apparently kills her during his scheme to portray himself as America's saviour. While she survives this, he then has her put in a power draining device, fully intending to kill her.

    Mikhail 

Mikhail

Species: Human

Portrayed By: Gabriel Gurevich

First Appearance: "The House of L" (Supergirl 4x16)

Appearances: Supergirl

A young Kaznian boy whom Red Daughter saves from a bunch of violent thieves after discovering her powers.


  • Abusive Parents: Describes his father as a "bad man" who left him and his mom.
  • Children Are Innocent: Shown to be very sweet and caring.
  • Faking the Dead: Lex orders Otis to kill him in order to further manipulate Red Daughter, but he can't bring himself to do it, so he tells Mikhail to fake his death.

Lian Yu

     Yao Fei Gulong 

Yao Fei Gulong

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yao_fei_arrow_8256.jpg

Species: Human

Played By: Byron Mann

First Appearance: "Honor Thy Father" (Arrow 1x2)

Appearances: Arrow

A former General in the People's Liberation Army of China, Yao Fei was scapegoated for a massacre the army committed. He was sentenced to prison on the island of Lian Yu, where he eventually became the last of the prisoners. He is a master archer and becomes Oliver's first mentor on the island.


  • Action Dad: He has two grown up daughters.
  • Adaptational Badass: The comic Yao Fei is a downplayed Combat Medic who is more of a Squishy Wizard and relies more on force-fields. Shado's father in the comics was part of the Yakuza, but his only physically capable skill was being able to endure lots of pain. Here, he's a a former army General and a very competent fighter who becomes Oliver's first mentor in on the island.
  • Anti-Hero: What he actually is, as the reason he seems to either help or harm Oliver at any given moment is due to circumstances he's desperately trying to arrange.
  • Badass Beard: He sports a fantastic beard which adds to the badass image.
  • Boom, Headshot!: Happens to him in "Darkness On The Edge of Town".
  • The Bus Came Back: He returns as a ghost on Lian Yu during the final season.
  • Composite Character: In the comics, Yao Fei is part of a Chinese superhero group called "Great Ten". However, his combat skills matches that of a member called Celestial Archer better than his counterpart. Also, to Shado's Yakuza father Tomonaga.
  • Dragon with an Agenda: He just wants his daughter to be safe. His Heel Turn is because said villains have her.
  • Far East Asian Terrorists: What he's supposed to be eventually. See The Scape Goat for details.
  • Generation Xerox: His daughter met her end the same way as him; via Boom, Headshot!.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: Subverted. Despite appearing to switch sides at will, he's actually trying to help Oliver and protect his daughter.
  • In the Hood: The original wearer of Oliver's green hood.
  • Love Makes You Evil: Pretty much, though he does his best to try and avoid it.
  • The Mentor: Indirectly at first, but after some time, he seemed to actively help Oliver in surviving the island.
  • Mentor Occupational Hazard: Fyers shoots him in the head at the end of "Darkness on the Edge of Town," leaving Oliver to put his lessons into practice without him.
  • Mysterious Past: Season 5 reveals that before he got to the island, he met Talia A-Ghul and she was his mentor and was the one who taught him to shoot a bow.
  • Only One Name: It's eventually revealed that his full name was Yao Fei Gulong, but it's unclear if Yao Fei is his given name or surname (realistically it would be the former).
  • Papa Wolf: Works for Fyers because he has his daughter, Shado. The second she's free and with Slade and Oliver, he makes them leave him to Fyers's mercy and get her to safety.
  • Posthumous Character: He is dead for about four or five years before the start of the series.
  • Pretty Little Headshots: His end is fairly clean, all things considered.
  • Related in the Adaptation: He and Shado are not related in any way in the comics.
  • Second Episode Introduction: Introduced in the second episode of the entire series.
  • Sink-or-Swim Mentor: His general way of "teaching" Oliver involves throwing him into situations and seeing how he gets out of them by himself. Lampshaded in "Betrayal".
    Slade: I think Yao Fei sent you because he knew I cannot take the airstrip alone.
    Oliver: ...sounds like Yao Fei.
  • The Scape Goat: For a massacre committed by the Chinese Army, then was almost made one for Fyers' terrorist attack.
  • The Straight and Arrow Path: He is very proficient with a bow and arrow, and slightly teaches Oliver on how to use it. His daughter is the one who thoroughly trained Ollie, though.
  • Training from Hell: Gave this to Oliver when he was stranded for five years.
  • Walking Spoiler: As should be expected, given the plot-heavy nature of the flashbacks.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: As soon as he has (unwillingly) claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack, Fyers shoots him in the head.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shado_arrow_9325.jpg

Species: Human

Played By: Celina Jade

Voiced by: Mónica Pavón (Latin-American Spanish dub), Mutsumi Tamura (Japanese)

First Appearance: "The Odyssey" (Arrow 1x14)

Appearances: Arrow

Daughter of Yao Fei, Shado was trained by him as a young girl. She was kidnapped by Fyers men and brought to the island to force Yao Fei to cooperate. She eventually escaped and joined up with Oliver and Slade Wilson, continuing her father's training of Oliver and entering into a romantic relationship with him.


  • Action Girl: She is able to fight several of Fyers' men and manages to escape with Oliver and Slade.
  • Adaptational Consent: Her relationship with Oliver in this version is entirely consensual, while in the comics she raped him to conceive a child when he was delirious with fever from a wound (that she gave him).
  • Adaptational Heroism: Shado in the comics is a Dark Action Girl who raped Oliver. Here she's his mentor and their relationship is consensual.
  • Adaptational Nationality: Shado was Japanese in the comics; here, she's Chinese.
  • Animal Motif: Like Oliver, she has a tattoo of a dragon on her shoulder.
  • Boom, Headshot!: How she's killed by Ivo.
  • Brainy Brunette: She was in med school before being kidnapped by Fyers.
  • Damsel out of Distress:
    • She is first introduced as a crying hostage being allowed a brief meeting with her father, but her next appearance warns against first impressions; she takes down several armed men who were supposed to shoot her and escapes.
    • Fyers threatens to kill her unless Oliver and Slade give over the circuit board for the missile launcher. She manages to escape on her own.
  • Death by Adaptation: Shado did not die in the comics.
  • Decomposite Character: Her status from the comics as a bow wielding assassin, having a romantic interest in a hero(ine), and her canonical battle gear (the mouth covering veil and black outfit) was given to Nyssa Al-Ghul in the show. Her role as Emiko Queen's mother is also given to Koizumi Hadachi, her grandmother in the comics.
  • Generation Xerox: She met her end the same way her father did; via Boom, Headshot!.
  • Identical Twins: It is revealed late in Season 3 that she had one. Her name is Mei.
  • In the Hood: Takes to wearing her father's old hood in the Season Two flashbacks.
  • I Let Gwen Stacy Die: To Ollie and Slade. After she is mercilessly shot in the back of the head by Ivo, Ollie blames himself for her death, and it along with the Mirakuru is the reason for Slade's Start of Darkness and later Face–Heel Turn.
  • Lady of War: Gentle, wise, and mature for her age, and capable of efficiently taking out several soldiers bare-handed or shooting tree branches with great precision.
  • Light Feminine Dark Feminine: Zig-Zagged. She had a twin sister who appears more feminine than her. However, said twin is more savvy not to trust a stranger (Oliver) contrary to Shado, who is an Action Girl but still got into a whole lot of shit because she trusted the wrong person (Fyers). Their clothes seems to invoke this too; Shado wore mostly gray and black (though justified due to being stranded on a not-so deserted island and all) while said twin sister wore mostly white.
  • Love Triangle: Both Oliver and Slade fall for her. Although she chooses Oliver as her lover, she has noticeable UST during a sparring session with Slade and shares her bodily warmth with him when he's severely burned.
  • Military Brat: Her father was a (former) General in the Chinese army.
  • Missing Mom: Her mother is never mentioned.
  • Nice Girl: In contrast to her father and Slade, she's nice to Oliver for the most part.
  • One of the Boys: Enforced and justified; she seems to be the only girl on the island, but she can hold her own against them and is more capable than Oliver. This is explained as being her father Wanted a Son Instead.
  • Only a Flesh Wound: Fyers shoots her in the shoulder, but she's no worse for the wear afterwards.
  • Posthumous Character: She is dead for four years before the start of the series.
  • Pretty Little Headshots: Subverted. The entrance wound from Ivo shooting her is pretty small, but the amount of blood Slade gets on him from cradling her body makes it clear the exit wound is not pretty.
  • Related in the Adaptation: She and Yao Fei are not related in any way in the comics.
  • Sadistic Choice: Ivo had Oliver, Shado and Sara Lance captive. He intends to kill one of the girls, but gives Oliver the choice of which girl to spare. Oliver chose Sara. The 'choice' in question was not exactly made by him. When Sara was held at gunpoint, Oliver desperately tried to get in front of her, and Ivo took that action as his choice.
  • Sexy Mentor: She was Oliver's archery mentor. Cue mutual sexual tension along the way.
  • Skilled, but Naïve: Trusting someone she shouldn't is what got her captured by Fyers in the first place.
  • The Squadette: On the island.
  • The Straight and Arrow Path: She's proficient with a bow and arrow, and she is the one who properly teaches Oliver on how to use it.
  • Teacher/Student Romance: She and Oliver have this in Season Two's flashbacks.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Season 3 revealed she had a twin sister. Said twin appears more feminine than her and is implied not to be an Action Girl.
  • Tragic Keepsake: Her father's green hood, which goes both ways. First, she took it after Yao Fei's death. Then, Oliver took it after she dies.
  • Trickster Mentor: She strengthens Oliver's arms by having him slap a bowl of water all day, then shows how he can pull a bow better. However, she's nicer about it than his other mentors.
  • Unkempt Beauty: Well, she is stranded on an island and on the run from the bad guys.
  • Unrelated in the Adaptation: Unlike in the comic books, she is not Emiko Queen's mother (as well as Robert Queen's second wife/mistress) in this continuity.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: These tropes may be at work, as although her father clearly loves her, given the lengths he was willing to go to keep her alive, she implies her training was because he Wanted a Son Instead.
    Slade: Who taught you how to fight?
    Shado: My father wanted a son.
    Slade: (approving) He got one!

  • Broken Bird: She's depressed and cynical, but she is a former slave trapped on an island with villains trying to kill her.
  • Corrupt the Cutie: She ends up taken by the idol's power and begins to slowly descend into villainy.
  • Dark Magical Girl: She transforms into one thanks to the idol corrupting her mind with magical abilities.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Zigzagged; she despises Oliver because he's one of the guards holding her prisoner, then warms up to him after he saves her life only for Oliver to confess that he killed her brother (in self-defence because Conklin tried to get Vlad to murder him). This causes her to hate Oliver again but they eventually form a bond though not a romantic one.
  • Despair Event Horizon: The death of her brother caused her to grow into a much darker person.
  • Disposable Love Interest: She gained a hefty amount of Ship Tease with Oliver, but he sadly has to kill her when she's corrupted by the idol.

  • Neck Snap: Oliver is forced to kill her this way.
  • The Not-Love Interest: Unlike with Sara and Shado, there's never anything physical between her and Oliver, likely because of the lingering issue of Oliver killing Vlad.

  • Not So Different: The idol's power over her makes her slowly become similar to Reiter.
  • Posthumous Character: She is dead for at least two years before the start of the series.

  • Ruritania: Located somewhere in Eastern Europe.
  • Take Over the World: Well it's not their explicit goal, but as Lynn points out if they did realize their goal of creating a metahuman army nobody else in the world would stand a chance against them so the implications are obvious.
  • With Us or Against Us: As Odell explain to Lynn, to Markovia any metahuman who isn't on their side is considered a threat to them.

Species: Metahuman

Known Aliases: Gravedigger

Played By: Wayne Brady

First Appearance: "The Book of Markovia: Chapter Four: Grab the Strap" (Black Lightning 3x13)

Appearances: Black Lightning

The very first Metahuman. He possesses enhanced strength and speed, as well as telepathic powers, who got woken up by the Markovians and has worked for them since.


  • Affably Evil: Gravedigger is friendly, honorable, compliments his opponent's fighting skill and wants to avoid unnecessary bloodshed. He also gives every last one of his dead opponents a proper burial, true to his name. Doesn't make him any less dangerous.
  • All Your Powers Combined: Due to his stable metagene, he is able to ingest Lynn's serum and keep all the various powers permanently, making him possibly the most powerful metahuman in existence.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: Executes Colonel Mosin during the start of Season 3's last arc, making him the primary threat that both Jefferson and his team, as well as the ASA have to face, though Odell still remains a great threat in his own right.
  • Brought Down to Normal: Due to Lynn injecting him with the anti-serum, though it is not clear whether it is permanent or not.
  • Category Traitor: Lynn is shocked to see an American working for Markovia against his own country.
  • Compelling Voice: His most dangerous metahuman power is controlling people through auditory stimulation, which overrides the frontal lobe.
  • Due to the Dead: He gets his codename from the fact that he spent years serving in the military's Grave Registration Service, burying the dead. The work instilled in him a strong respect for the dead, and he now personally buries allies and enemies alike who die, making sure that all of them receive a proper burial.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: He has a nasty scar running across his face, similar to Squall.
  • Karma Houdini: Somehow survives the explosion of the Pit, getting away without anybody knowing.
  • Knight Templar: He considers himself completely righteous. He wants to "free" all metahumans from America's control, whether they want it or not.
  • Long-Lost Relative: He is actually Jefferson's great-uncle.
  • Make Way for the New Villains: Takes over Colonel Mosin's operation and puts him in his place.
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: He defected to Markovia after realizing that no matter how well he served the US, they would always treat him as an inferior, whereas in Markovia, the only person he has to answer to is Mosin.
  • Older Than They Look: Fought in World War II and the super solider program that unlocked his metagene also gave him slowed aging.
  • Precursors: Somewhat, but in the eyes of metahumans. He was the first metahuman to be put on record; Gambi calls him Meta-Prime. Because of him, all metahumans have a link to him, even though they aren't related to him only through the metagene they all possess. He is also a precursor to Black Lightning; he is Jefferson's great-uncle. The Pierce family inherited their stable metagene from him.
  • Scary Black Man: Despite his friendly tendencies, there is something seriously off-putting about his presence.
  • The Worf Effect: Gives Khalil a serious ass whooping.

Species: Human

Played by: Christina Wolfe

First Appearance: "Tell Me the Truth" (Batwoman 1x7)

Appearances: Batwoman

Alfred Pennyworth's daughter, a British covert operative with the Special Reconnaissance Regiment, and one of Kate Kane's former combat instructors and lovers. She helps conceal Kate's secret by posing as Batwoman.


  • Action Girl: She's a British soldier and was able to pose as a Krav Maga instructor.
  • Adaptational Backstory Change:
    • In the comics, Julia had no idea Bruce Wayne was Batman for most of her life, and was actually angered by her father working for, for all she knew, a vapid playboy. She also didn't know any other Gothamites beforehand. Here, she was aware of this long before Kate found out, and was even fairly close to Luke Fox.
    • In the show, Julia was also one of Kate's instructors during her global training (specifically, in Krav Maga). Needless to say, this did not happen in the source.
  • Adaptational Sexuality: It's been hinted in the comics that Julia is gay, or at least finds Kate Kane attractive, but nothing more concrete than that. In the show, she and Kate had a definite romance while Julia was training her.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: In the comics, she's always had dark hair; here, she's blonde. Additionally, the modern incarnation of Julia this version primarily draws from has always had short, cropped hair, while this Julia's hair is past her shoulders.
  • Compressed Adaptation: Her backstory with Kate, where they worked together (with Julia reporting to Bruce) only for Julia to betray Kate's trust, is more-or-less their dynamic in Batwoman (Rebirth), just under different circumstances and with a definite romance in the show.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Discovers that she has several memory holes, which she eventually traces back to Enigma. However, when confronting her, Enigma manages to get the drop on her and makes her forget everything again.
  • Lipstick Lesbian: She has long hair and a feminine clothing style, getting into rleationships with Kate, then later Sophie.
  • Love Triangle: She starts a relationship with Sophie, another ex-girlfriend of Kate's whom she still has feelings for.
  • Made of Iron: In "Tell Me the Truth," she gets blasted through a brick wall, then falls three stories onto pavement, and then is involved in a violent auto crash when Kate rescues her. She only gets a few broken ribs from all this; even considering she was wearing the Batsuit, that's something.
  • Put on a Bus: Puts in a transfer to Berlin after being brainwashed by Enigma.
  • Race Lift: Sort of. In pre-Crisis comics, Julia was white, but from the New 52 onward, she's been biracial; in the show, she's white. The show uses the special operative version of Julia, who is only in New 52 and Rebirth-era comics.
  • Rogue Agent: Towards the end of season one she's revealed to have been kicked out of the SSR because she agreed to work for Safiyah Sohail to protect Kate, though she claims she no longer is.
  • Sex for Solace: She has no problem helping Kate get over Sophie by starting her own relationship with her (never mind that Julia made things worse by not revealing her identity straight up), and sleeps with Kate again for a one-night stand when she's distraught over betraying Alice by locking her up in Arkham.
  • Was It All a Lie?: Bruce Wayne sent her to watch over Kate, a fact that Kate only found out when someone addressed Julia as "Pennyworth". Kate naturally assumed their entire relationship was a fraud and cut off ties with her. Julia says the only thing she lied about was her name, but Kate is still shown to have lingering trust issues towards her.

Appearances: Vixen | Legends of Tomorrow

Mari's older sister, who covets the Anansi totem for herself. She's eventually killed by Eshu, but a few years later, a mysterious witch brings her back to life to serve Mallus.


  • Achilles' Heel: Snart's cold gun. As she's all about water, that particular weapon is obviously a problem.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Her eyes are gold in Vixen, but brown in Legends of Tomorrow.
  • Age Lift: In the comics, Vixen's evil relative is her uncle. Here, she's only more or less a decade older than Mari.
  • Aloof Big Sister: To Mari. As the tropes around here points out, she's a shitty sister.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: She's quite hostile and is very bitter for not becoming The Chosen One.
  • Antagonistic Offspring: Antagonistic granddaughter to be precise, for Amaya.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Mari and later Amaya., given their familial bonds.
  • Back from the Dead: She's resurrected to serve Mallus in Season Three of "Legends".
  • Bare-Fisted Monk: Even without her Totem powers, she's a genuinely impressive hand-to-hand combatant, being able to easily keep up with Sara Lance.
  • Big Bad: Of Vixen Season One.
  • Broken Pedestal: As a little girl, she idolized her grandmother Amaya, but then becomes appalled at seeing her in love in Nate and remaining on the Waverider, believing Amaya to be putting her own selfish desires above her duty to her village and her family's existence.
  • Cain and Abel: She's Mari's sister, and wishes to claim what she feels is her birthright (i.e. the totem) for herself, even at the expense of her sister's life.
  • Can't Kill You, Still Need You: With good reason, seeing how killing Amaya puts her very existence at risk.
  • Celebrity Paradox: The Disney Animated Canon is confirmed to exist in the Arrowverse and is mentioned in the shows quite a few times. Her voice actress is the official voice of Disney Princess Tiana.
  • Character Death: Mallus rips the Water Totem out of her chest after she sides with Amaya. Since that was what resurrected her, she promptly dies. Fortunately, thanks to time-travel shenanigans, she's alive and a hero in the current timeline.
  • The Chosen Wannabe: A variant. She was supposed to be the guardian of the Anansi totem, but it bonded with Mari instead. She did not take this well and relentlessly plans to take the totem because she feels it's rightfully hers.
  • Dragon with an Agenda: Her main reason for allying with Mallus is the chance to go back in time and save her village from being razed.
  • Elemental Shapeshifter: After her resurrection she basically becomes living water. She's able to solidify her form, but can reconstitute herself if she takes damage.
  • Enemy Mine: In Vixen Season Two, after getting the Water Totem, she teams up with Mari to fight Eshu, which gets her killed.
  • Evil Counterpart: In the first season, she has Mari's powerset when they engage in battle.
  • Freudian Excuse: She witnessed her village being ravaged by a warlord and her family abandoning her...it's not hard to see why she became the way she did.
  • Gender Flip: In the comics, Vixen's evil relative who wants the totem is male.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: She resents Mari for a variety of reasons: not only did the totem chose her, but their mother chose to save Mari instead of both of them when their village was attacked.
  • Guttural Growler: Her voice is much huskier compared to Mari's.
  • Heel–Face Door-Slam: After some back and forth, she finally decides to side with her grandmother...and Mallus promptly murders her for it. However...
  • Heel–Face Return: Thanks to the Legends changing history, her village was never destroyed and Kuasa in the current timeline consequently become a hero like Mari, even having the same costume and sharing the Anansi Totem
  • Kill It with Fire: She dies after being incinerated by Eshu.
  • Making a Splash: Her power in Season Two after taking the Water Totem.
  • Motive Decay: In Vixen, she claimed she wanted the Anansi Totem to protect Zambesi; in Legends Season Three, she has no such pretense and actively serves the evil Mallus. When Amaya points this out to her, she gets very defensive, because as it turns out she's working with Mallus in exchange for the chance to stop Eshu from destroying her village.
  • Moveset Clone: After stealing the Anansi totem, she gains the same powers that Mari had.
  • Naked on Revival: Upon being resurrected she emerges forms from the water of a lake, which does not include any clothes.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: After she's resurrected, she's impossible to kill or injure; she can simply transform to water just before any attack.
  • The Resenter: Her animosity to Mari stems from feeling that she should've become the totem bearer instead.
  • Rogues Gallery Transplant: Went from being an enemy of Mari/Vixen to an enemy of the Legends. While Vixen is a member of the Legends, it's Mari's grandmother Amaya who faces her.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In Season Three of Legends, her control of water has increased quite substantially after merging with the water totem.
  • Transplant: Becomes a main villain in Legends Season Three; however, no matter what show she's on, she still goes up against a Vixen.
  • The Unfavorite: How she sees herself ever since her mother chose to get her baby sister, Mari to safety and left her behind.

  • Brainy Brunette: A very brilliant scientist.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Caitlin mentions her in The Flash Season 2 before appearing in person and becoming an integral part of her Story Arc in Season 3.
  • Consummate Liar: When Ralph and Caitlin went to interrogate her about the forged death certificate of Thomas Snow, she speaks surely that she did not forge it and insists that Thomas is dead.

  • Ice Queen: Caitlin described her as very cold.
  • It Runs in the Family: She's basically an older Caitlin but slightly a Jerkass.

  • Named by the Adaptation: The name of Killer Frost's mother is never stated in the comics.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arrow_christopher_chance.png

Species: Metahuman(?)

Known Aliases: Human Target, Various impersonations/disguises

Played by: Wil Traval, Various Disguises 

First Appearance: "Human Target" (Arrow 5x5)

Appearances: Arrow

A Master of Disguise who previously worked for the Bratva and is hired by Oliver during his mayoral term to protect him from Tobias Church's organization.


  • Adaptational Badass: For a guy whose career is being a Master of Disguise, he's incredibly formidable at combat. He completely turned the tides against Church's forces when he shows up to aid Team Arrow.
  • Alliterative Family: Christopher Chance.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: A cool character who is always wearing a suit.
  • Becoming the Mask: He explains that he doesn't just pretend to be his target, but actually becomes them. He thoroughly researches his target and gets to know them better than they know themselves. So anything he does while playing them, the target would have done too.
  • The Bus Came Back: He returns in Season 6 to help Oliver in his trial, first by impersonating Tommy Merlyn, claiming to be the real Green Arrow, and then by impersonating judge McGarvey, acquitting Oliver.
  • Celebrity Paradox: The Marvel Cinematic Universe is acknowledged to exist in the Arrowverse. His actor plays one of the main characters in Jessica Jones (2015).
  • Dead Person Impersonation: He disguised himself as the late Tommy Merlyn in order to remove suspicion from Oliver.
  • Fights Like a Normal: Regardless of the origin of his impersonation abilities, he still fights like any other Badass Normal does and is very good at it.
  • Good Counterpart: He's what Hannibal Bates could have been if he used his shape-shifting powers for good.
  • Human Shield: What he basically does for a living is disguising as his target and being 'killed' in their place.
  • Latex Perfection: His ability to impersonate others is to superhuman levels. He can perfectly imitate anyone, wearing a mask of his target so that no one can tell the difference. He even appears to be able to change his physical build and his facial hair to match who he's impersonating.
  • Made of Iron: He can sustain a lot of damage from bullets without coming to any harm.
  • Master of Disguise: His main skill.
  • Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: It's never made clear if his impersonation ability is superhuman, if he uses technology, magic, or if he's just that skilled.
  • Once a Season: A Recurring Character that happens to pop up once a season to aid Team Arrow. Something he joked about in season 6.
    Chance (after helping get Oliver acquitted): Always happy to help. Just... try not to need me again. For, at least, another year.

"Look, you can live any way you please. But don't ask me to witness it."

Species: Human

Portrayed By: Carlos Bernard

First Appearance: "Far From the Tree" (Supergirl 3x3)

Appearances: Supergirl

Maggie Sawyer's estranged, conservative father.


  • Bait the Dog: When Maggie first meets him again, he seems a changed man, being incredibly friendly towards both her and Alex. However, after witnessing a kiss between them on their maiden shower, he storms out in disgust.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: On the receiving end. Maggie makes it clear to her father that she's no longer the scared little girl that seeks his approval.
    Maggie: That little girl, so desperate to win her father's love... you left her on the side of the road. And after all these years, I've been that little girl. Yearning for my papa to come back for me, praying that one day he would see me and love me for who I am. Thank you for coming to the shower, you gave me an amazing gift. You showed me that I'm not that scared little girl in that picture anymore. I'm an adult woman, and I'm happy in my own skin, and I'm so fortunate that I'm surrounded by people who value and cherish me. I finally understand that I don't need you to see me or to get me or to even like me, I don't need anything from you! I'm already good. Good bye, papa.
  • Celebrity Paradox: 24 was mentioned by Winn during a Season 2 episode. His actor was a main cast member of the show.
  • I Have No Daughter!: Years ago, after finding out that Maggie is a lesbian, he (and his wife) disowned her and left her at her aunts house.
  • Self-Made Man: He worked so hard to win everybodys respect that the same boys who used to ridicule and beat him up as a kid later elected him the sherrif of their town.
  • Troubled Sympathetic Bigot: While it doesn't excuse his actions, his backstory is rather tragic. He came to America when he was 9, worked in a factory at 11 where all the other (white) boys would beat him because he was Mexican, and worked hard enough that those same boys elected him sheriff as an adult. He tells Maggie he worked that hard so that his children would never have to face that sort of prejudice, and he sees Maggie's homosexuality as something that could hurt her in the long run; he doesn't want her to not get married, he just doesn't want to see it.
