Fans will get to know the following new characters this fall:
DANIEL: A handsome entrepreneur who is working on groundbreaking technology and who is hiding a tragic past. He becomes a love interest for Felicity, a rival for Oliver… and a new superhero. (NOTE: this name could be a temporary placeholder.)
SETH: Intelligent criminal who specializes in chemistry. He drains his enemies of their power via a special drug and, physically, is on par with the Arrow.
TOSHI: Will be seen via flashbacks to Hong Kong. Will serve as Oliva’s teacher, friend and handler and will be a loyal father/husband who is a well-trained in combat.
AKIKO: Toshi’s wife and another of Oliver’s caretakers in Hong Kong. No fighting slouch herself.
Felicity: What's going on? Ray? Ray: Oliver Queen is the Arrow. Felicity: What? Ray: I have a 140 IQ and three PhDs, but it's pretty hard to insult my intelligence, but I'm pretty sure you just did. It all makes sense now. Your, ah, sudden disappearances, your apprehension of helping me with my mission. You've been working with the Arrow this whole time.
