Before being found on a remote island, Oliver Queen was presumed to be dead for five years after a terrible shipwreck.

Prior to the shipwreck, Oliver was a wealthy and laid-back heart-breaker, without a care in the world. However, being on a deserted island changed him. While still pretending to be the man he used to be, Oliver goes by a different persona, Arrow, at night. As Arrow, Oliver tries to fight society's villains and restore his city to the way it used to be.
