Character Bio

Sara Lance photo
Sara Lance is Laurel's sister with whom Oliver had an affair. Sara, along with Laurel and their mother Dinah, is based on the DC Comics superheroine Black Canary. She was believed to have drowned with the sinking Queen's Gambit, but she resurfaces in season 2 as another vigilante, the Canary, who is connected to the League of Assassins. She was originally portrayed by Jacqueline MacInnes Wood in the pilot.

According to Kreisberg, she is "the beginning of the Black Canary story". She eventually wins her freedom from the League and returns to Starling City, to become part of Oliver's team in additions working at his nightclub.

In Seeing Red, she and Oliver break up after the latter rejected her plea for him to kill Roy, who was at the time in a rampage by deciding to save him instead.

In Unthinkable, Sara willingly rejoins the League in order to have them aid her in dealing with Slade Wilson's army.

Sara Lance Quotes

02x22 - Streets of Fire Season 2 / Episode 22: - Streets of Fire

Sara Lance: You don't know, Laurel, about me. About who I am, and who I've become.
Laurel Lance: I know you're a hero.
Sara Lance: I'm not a hero... Laurel. I'm the furthest thing from it. I am "Ta-er Sah-fer." That was my new name. Because of the woman that I was, the girl that I was, was gone.
Laurel Lance: I'm not going to pretend that I've been through anything that you have. But one thing that I've learned in the past year is that these things... they don't break us. They make us who we are.
Sara Lance: And what I am... is irredeemable.
Laurel Lance: What was that word you said before?
Sara Lance: Ta-er Sah-fer.
Laurel Lance: What does that mean?
Sara Lance: It means "The Canary".
Laurel Lance: If you're so far gone and so irredeemable... then why would they know you by such a beautiful name?
02x20 - Seeing Red Season 2 / Episode 20: - Seeing Red

Sara Lance: 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.
