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.

Oliver Queen/Arrow Quotes

Aww, you gonna make a new friend?

Felicity

Sara: You told them that I died on The Gambit. If they know the truth...
Oliver: They would never talk to me again. Not one of them. It would be worth it.

Arrow Quotes

Sara: So what? You think you deserve a medal for trying to be good for five seconds? Redemption isn't a destination, it's a journey. I wasted years running away from all of the bad things I had done because I didn't want to face the pain that I had caused because I didn't want to be that person. And then I realized the only way to stop being that person was to come home and own up to the things I had done. And yeah, it was painful. And it took a really long time, but it was the only way to become someone else, someone better than who I was.
Laurel: Well, that's great for you. But even if I wanted to change, it's a little too late because this is who I am.

Love it a bullet to the brain...or an arrow to the heart.
