Appearance: Laurel was idealistic, intelligent, hard-working, and fights hard to get what she wants. She was a competent, upstanding lawyer and works to stand up for the innocent and what was right, despite the corruption in Starling City. She can be stubborn, feisty, and independent and doesn't like to be told what to do. Laurel was attracted to troublemakers, as shown when she dated both Oliver and Tommy. She gets annoyed when her father tries to get in the way, always forming his opinion of her boyfriends, even though it almost never changes her mind. Laurel was tough and knows how to take care of herself. She takes risks, like contacting the vigilante and can't resist saving people from tough situations, from when Tommy and Oliver were going to get beat up in the night club Poison, to innocent people on trial.
However, Laurel shows she had a big heart, being open-minded and inquisitive, having a tendency to see the best in the people around her. While her anger towards Oliver for supposedly getting Sara killed and cheating on her with Sara made her harsh towards him, at first, a situation exacerbated by the fact that there was still a spark between them. She humored Oliver when he admitted that she should hate him for what he did to her and her sister, but she eventually came around to forgiving him, realizing Sara was also as much to blame. She even wants to get along with her father again, after he used her as bait for the Hood. She was also one of the few people seeing the good person Oliver was inside, even through the snob-front he presents on the outside. When first meeting the Hood, she was disturbed by his methods, she could eventually realize he was, in his own way, trying to help Starling City.
Due to the events of the Undertaking as well as her kidnapping and emotional dilemmas, her personality takes a harsh fall. She also didn't want to face her own guilt, for being partly responsible for Tommy's death, so she tried to blame the Arrow for something that wasn't his fault, until she was captured and almost killed by Barton Mathis. She starts using drugs and alcohol, like her father, to cope with her pain; eventually she loses the respect of her father and Oliver, even losing her job as an ADA. She is reluctant to admit that she has a problem, and spirals deeper and deeper into her addiction.
When Sara returned alive and well, though she was shocked at first, Laurel viciously rejected her. Laurel kept on trying to blame people in general for ruining her life, this behavior of hers continued, until Oliver coldly criticized and corrected her on her actions, and being pressured by her father she began to go to AA meeting groups and tearfully reconciled with her sister welcoming her back. Laurel began displaying her former personality, showing some bravery and stubbornness as she refused to leave without her colleagues who were being taken hostage by Helena. She managed to convince the Canary to help her free the hostages.
Although she eventually seeks help for her addiction and reconciles with her friends and family, it seems that her experiences have left their mark and brought out a darker, harder, manipulative side of her character, as demonstrated when she blackmails DA Kate Spencer into giving her her old job back, and to have her father released from conviction when he was arrested for aiding the Arrow. Later on after discovering Oliver and Sara were the respective vigilantes Arrow and the Canary Laurel not only accepted these facts she confronted them on her own terms; she comforted and inspired them to carry on their crusades during their crisis of faith when Oliver was depressed following Moira Queen's death, and Sara's self-depreciation believing she wasn't a hero due to her time with the League of Assassins while participating in the fight against Slade Wilson's siege of Starling City.
Personality:: After Sara was killed, dying right in front of her, Laurel was struck with grief, shock and forced herself not to tell it to her father (out of fear it would cause him a heart attack). She became angrier, reckless, and was fueled with a desire for revenge; she sought to help people like her sister did as she tried to assault a man that abused his girlfriend to honor her sister's memory. Determined not to fall into addiction again, she needed "another way" and asked Oliver to train her in combat. When Oliver refused, she turned to boxing as an outlet, then learning of Ted Grant's vigilante past she became his apprentice, asking him to train her. To deal with her pain, and with Oliver's supposed death being the catalyst, she decided to take up her sister's mask, begin to actively fight crime out on the streets and act as The Black Canary. Despite a lot of objections and being unsuccessful at first she kept doing it and slowly became better.
After Laurel was injected by one of Werner Zytle's Vertigo-filled throwing darts, which caused her to see a hallucination of Sara and was almost killed by the latter, she finally realized that Oliver was right (that she was using vigilantism and adrenaline to avoid facing the fact that Sara was dead and she was never coming back); Laurel finally came clean to her father about her sister's death which cost her her relationship with him, though they admit they'll always love one another. Even after she learned Malcolm Merlyn was her sister's killer, and even attempted to take him down which ends very badly for as she is no match for Malcolm, she ultimately took Ted's advice not to train to defeat Sara's killer, but to train for herself, as well as Felicity's advice not to follow in Sara's footsteps but "to be herself". After striking up an unlikely friendship with Nyssa al Ghul who shared stories of Sara with her, and offered her further training, Laurel started to regain her sense of self-discipline and control. She ultimately became a proficient fighter in her own right effectively becoming an official member of Team Arrow, even impressing and being accepted by Oliver.

Dinah Laurel Lance (1985 – April 6, 2016), known simply as Laurel Lance, was a citizen of Star City and one of its most beloved public servants. Laurel was the oldest daughter of the late Quentin Lance and Dinah Lance (after whom she was named) the older sister of Sara Lance, and the on/off girlfriend and longtime friend of Oliver Queen. The ex-girlfriend of the late Tommy Merlyn, she was a lawyer who held the position of assistant district attorney and was previously a former legal aid attorney. However, after the death of her sister she was inspired to take up vigilantism and received training from Ted Grant and later by her close friend and her sister's former lover, Nyssa al Ghul. She eventually joined Team Arrow and became known as the Black Canary, the second Canary of her beloved city.
Laurel was fatally stabbed by Damien Darhk during his prison escape and passed away surrounded by the team just moments before her father arrived. Following her death, her actions as Black Canary were made public by Oliver Queen in order to preserve her reputation as a hero to Star City; her identity as Black Canary is left on her own tombstone.
Laurel didn't remember much about what had happened to her after Dhark's prison escape that night over a year ago when he'd stabbed her with one of Oliver's arrows, his opening having been given when his idol was restore, giving him his magic back and allowing him to freeze the team of vigilantes unable to move, leaving Laurel helpless to try to stop him from fatally injuring her. She'd somehow known she was going to die in the hospital, though at the time she hadn't been sure how she'd known. She just had. She remembered making Oliver promise not to let her be the last Canary and then everything had gone black. Now she was suddenly alive, in a city she didn't recognize and feeling more alone then she had felt in a very long time.
Somehow she was dressed in her Black Canary suit even though she knew that she hadn't been dressed in it after she'd gone through surgery and been brought to the room where she was to stay once admitted. Nothing was familiar, this wasn't even her home. So where was she? And how did she get there. Finding a public bathroom she did check to see if she had really been stabbed or if she had dreamt it all. When checked her stomach, the area where she arrow had entered her body and found the scar that marred her otherwise unblemished skin of her stomach. Once she knew that she hadn't dreamt it she redressed and left the restroom and wandered the streets, hoping to find something familiar, or at least something to give her some hint as to where she might be and maybe even how she'd gotten there.
As she wandered the streets of this strange city, staying away from people, sticking to roofs and alleys she couldn't help but look for someone she could help, someone she could save, knowing that, that came from being The Black Canary. It was like a habit but she also liked to help people too so the desire to do so was more then just a habit. A sudden scream from a small alley between the building she was on currently and the one she planned to cross to caused her to stop and look down, trying to see what was going on before she decided to intervene. She saw several men who looked to be members of a gang, shove a woman against the wall and pin her there. She was trying to fight them but they were too strong and there was too many of them for her to fight off alone. Without heasitating, the blonde vigilante leaped from the top of the building down to the fire escape not far below her and then leaped to the top of a vehicle that had been left in the alley at some point. The moment her feet hit the roof of the vehicle with a thud, the gang members looked towards her in surprise, clearly not expecting anyone to show up to help the woman they were assaulting. "Let her go." She told them as she lept to the ground, landing gracefully on her feet, staring the men down, making it clear she wasn't going to ask them again if they chose not to listen to her. "Get lost." One snapped as he advanced towards her. "Don't say I didn't warn you." She said, moving into a defensive stance. She ducked as the man swung at her, then in a matter of seconds she was fighting, engaging in a violent, graceful fight that would have made her sister proud if she could have seen her then.
Suddenly a hard blow from one of the other men knocked her to the ground and she was forced to roll out of their reach, dazed and angry she'd been caught off guard. She blocked the next blow but took another one and felt a touch of fear and rage as she was backed into the wall at the alley's end. It was the rage that did it and suddenly, without any warning, she screamed, but the scream came out different then it did when she used the Canary Cry collar that Cisco had given her. She could see the sonic waves that left her mouth and could the three men get thrown backwards from the sheer force of the waves. A horrified and terrified look formed on her face and before the men could recover enough to get back to their feet she fled, leaving the downed men alone in the now otherwise vacant alleyway.
She was freaked out by what had happened, knowing that somehow she had been the one to produce the sonic scream, especially when she placed her fingers to her neck and found her Canary Cry collar was missing. She found an abandoned building that had a window broken and got inside, deciding to hide there, at least for the time being. She had to figure out what was happening to her, and hopefully soon.
By morning the news of a masked blonde woman in black leather had reached CatCo and of course everyone wanted to know who this vigilante was, especially when one of the men told a reporter that the woman had unleashed a scream like he'd never heard before, a scream that had enough force to throw him and his friends across the alley. Of course Cat wanted to know who the woman was and she wanted to know if Supergirl knew her, no one knowing yet that the mysterious blonde woman in black leather wasn't even from National City, let alone this earth and the terrified blonde woman wasn't coming forward to reveal herself so far. Cat of course wanted to find her and interview her before any other newspaper could. Laurel just wanted to find out what was happening to her and find a way to return to her home, but first she needed to find someone who could help her and she had no idea where to look first.
