The character will debut on Arrow Season 3 Episode 4 (the show's 50th installment overall) and will serve  as the leader of the League of Assassins. He's also the father of ​Katrina Law's Nyssa al Ghul.

Ghul is a bad, bad man: unforgiving, ruthless, proud, intelligent, a master of martial arts and protector of some significant secrets.

Nable will appear on multiple episodes in this villainous role.

It's been a major couple days for the series: earlier today, we posted photos from Arrow Season 3 Episode 1, while a new (AWESOME!) promo just hit the Internet as well.

Arrow Quotes

Laurel: Helena, you don't have to do this.
Helena: Yes, I do. Because once you let the darkness inside, it never comes out.

Sara: That's not true. I wanted to kill Roy because that's what I do. That's who I am. I spent six years in the darkness and I looked into the eyes of the devil and I gave him my soul.
Oliver: I can help you get it back.
Sara: No. You deserve someone better. You can harness that light that's still inside of you, but I'm not that person and I never will be.
