A troubled boy, Roy Harper was taken in by Oliver Queen as his ward. Using his own skill with a bow, he fought alongside his mentor as Speedy. Speedy would go on to be a second generation member of the Titans. After the death and funeral of Jason Todd, Roy quit the Titans by throwing his feathered cap in Green Arrow's face at a press event. Roy would go off on his own as a member of League of Assassins, remaking himself as Arsenal. He and Cheshire would later have a daughter, named Lian Harper.

He's also a founding member of the Outlaws, a group of anti-heroes led by Jason Todd along with Starfire, Donna Troy and Huntress.

  • Action Dad: The father of Lian Harper courtesy of Cheshire.
  • Arm Cannon: His weapon as Arsenal. The arm also have a three shot sonic blaster which can be fired from the arm's wrist.
  • Artificial Limbs: He lost his right arm by Dumah and now replaced with a cybernetic arm. The attachment works "around" Roy's nerve endings and actually enhances the pain he already feels. It hinders his ability as an archer to the point that he's stopped using a bow. It also features a grapnel line, lock-pick release device, wrist blade, communications equipment, and several small storage compartments which Roy uses to store first aid supplies, evidence, and a couple of cigars (he and Jason have a tradition of smoking cigars at the conclusion of a succession mission).
  • Badass Normal: Well, he was trained by Ollie, after all.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Like Jason, more deadpan than snarky.
  • Fatal Flaw: Self-depreciation. Roy has terrible self esteem born out of the abandonment issues he suffered through when he was a kid. As an adult, Roy is constantly worried about slipping back into his drug addiction and fears he's neither a good person, superhero or a good father to Lian.
  • Fiery Redhead: He's more prone to angry outbursts than his mentor who, while outspoken, is downright passive compared to Roy.
  • Good Is Not Nice: He's a hero, but is a jerk to his mentor, his teammates, and even the people he's rescuing.
  • Guns Akimbo: Roy is exceptionally skilled in the use, maintenance, and construction of most types of weaponry. Roy is a skilled marksman and gunsmith. Roy is responsible for the custom firearms and ammunition which both he and Red Hood use in the field.
  • Handicapped Badass: He lost his right arm by Dumas aka Jason Todd and had to replace it with a robotic arm as a result.
  • Heroic BSoD: Following his arm being hacked off.
  • Heroic Willpower: According to Hal Jordan, Roy might have what it takes to be a Green Lantern. This might just be Hal wishing to replace Guy for another redhead, but maybe there is something to it. Roy is definitely stubborn and brave to a fault.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Jason Todd.
  • Hidden Depths: Roy used to be drummer for the band Great Frog, while still a member of the Titans.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite his jerkass nature, he does genuinely care about his friends and secretly looks out for them.
  • Legally Dead: After the soft reboot. Roy Harper is legally dead, he use an alias as legal identity under the name of James Harper Jr.
  • Long-Range Fighter: Like his mentor, he's a master of archery. Unlike Green Arrow, however, he has no qualms using guns after he sets out on his own.
  • Official Couple: With Donna Troy.
  • Papa Wolf: To Lian, obviously, one of the most adorable and well-adjusted kids in comic book history. Despite requiring nannies from time to time, he never deprived her of love and attention and the two have had an amazingly adorable and loving relationship.
  • Le Parkour: While nowhere near as proficient as Dick Grayson, Roy has displayed on many occasions that he is an expert in acrobatics, and often uses this skill while evading enemy fire.
  • Perma-Stubble: He grows this as Arsenal.
  • Rage Quit: After Jason's Funeral, Roy quit the Titans by throwing his feathered cap in Green Arrow’s face at a press event.
  • Really Gets Around: Roy is infamously this with Jade Nguyen and Donna Troy.
  • Red Is Heroic: He has red hair and a hero. His first superhero outfit was completely red, except the yellow hat; his second costume is both red and black.
  • Sidekick: As Speedy.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Jason Todd.

Click for Civilian Look 

A former military soldier was part of a rescue force in the Battle of Mogadishu and at the conflict’s end, learned that his brother was among the few U.S. casualties. ue to John’s special forces background, he was hand-picked to oversee security for a very important, very private client: Cadmus Labs. On John’s first day at Cadmus Labs, he was given a shot which he was told was a simple flu shot. In truth, it was an enzyme that heightened John’s mental processes, particularly with his ability to process his sensory information and his response time to such stimuli; John was the ideal security specialist.

By the time Oliver freed John, the lab was torched, most of the workers had been killed or escaped, and John had been subjected to some memory erasing treatments but was alive. Oliver took John back to Star City and fixed him up.

Shortly after John’s recovery, he found out that Oliver had been making plans to become a superhero in the style of Gotham’s Batman. John offered to help. At first, John played support and let Ollie have all the fun. As time went on, John’s skills became more needed in the field, watching Ollie’s back. Now, John sports his own costume and calls himself "The Guardian".


  • Action Dad: He and Lyla have a daughter, Sarah Diggle.
  • Adaptation Name Change: He's Guardian rather than Spartan to avoid confusion with the Spartan of WildC.A.T.S.
  • Amicable Exes: Was this with Lyla, but they're back together and over a year later they remarry and it made him a loving, caring and responsible father to his cherished daughter, Sara.
  • Badass Beard: Like in the comics he has a full beard.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: He and Lyla are prone to arguments and such, but they obviously love each other.
  • Big Brother Mentor: Basically his role in Team Arrow.
  • Composite Character: Diggle is a composite of Jim Harper aka Guardian in the comics on E27, while he retains his Spartan general look from the Arrowverse, he also take cues from James Olsen who's also Guardian in Supergirl (2015) tv series.
  • Cool Helmet: His silver helm.
  • Deadpan Snarker: After he and Oliver become closer, he shows no hesitation in cracking wise on a regular basis.
  • Happily Married: With Lyla.
  • Healing Factor: He has an Accelerated Healing Factor and Resilience thanks by Cadmus's Serum.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Oliver.
  • Honorary Uncle: For Roy Harper.
  • The Lancer: To Oliver, always Oliver's second-in-command and the more level-headed Foil to Oliver.
  • Military Superhero: He's a retired U.S. Army soldier, though he only officially becomes a superhero during his year of vigilante work.
  • Official Couple: With Lyla Michaels-Diggle.
  • Only Sane Man: Unquestionably the most level-headed member of Team Arrow. While he still have his idiotic moments, it's not as worse as the rest.
  • Shield Bash: Uses his small shield for combat.
  • Super Serum: On John’s first day at Cadmus Labs, he was given a shot which he was told was a simple flu shot. In truth, it was an enzyme that heightened John’s mental processes, particularly with his ability to process his sensory information and his response time to such stimuli; John was the ideal security specialist. With the first shot such a success, Cadmus gave John further treatments. His shoulder not only fully recovered as a result of these chemical cocktails, but it was better than ever.
  • Tall, Dark, and Snarky: He stands 6'3" and definitely has a snarky humor.
  • Throwing Your Shield Always Works: Guardian usually prefers to keep hold of his shield, so he can use it like a shield, but he's pretty proficient at using it like a thrown projectile too.

Her comic counterpart is also afflicted with HIV, Roy felt this was a very sensitive topic (and also a very dated reference) so her origin was changed and she caught MacGregor's Syndrome (a fictional disease that's similar to cancer).

Feeling responsible for this, Ollie brought Tommy back to Star City with him. Tommy found his friendship with Ollie challenged, even though Ollie covered all of Tommy's medical and psychiatric costs. Tommy had become deeply traumatized by the damage to his body and also at the pain of having taken a life. When he and Ollie or Thea did talk, Tommy often remarked that his new face reflected his soul and felt he was destined to become a killer, like his father.
