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

Are you done?
Oliver; Yeah, I'm done. I'm done taking the blame and I'm done caring. Why don't you go have a drink. Get wasted. Go to Verdant. I'll pay for it. I have loved you for half of my life but I'm done running after you.


Oliver Queen is dead, eventually to be reborn as Ra's al Ghul. For now, only the Arrow, Al Sah-him, shall remain. Al Sah-him, Heir to the Demon.
