"30,000 years ago masks invested their wearer with authority, like a god!"
—Daily to Laurel Lance, imitating Brother Blood[src]


Officer Daily (died 2014), also known as Brother Daily (and once posing as Brother Blood, known to Star City Police Department as "The Masked Man"), was a dirty police officer of the Starling City Police Department. He secretly worked for Sebastian Blood, who used the alias Brother Blood. He was killed by Laurel Lance after he kidnapped her whilst posing as Brother Blood to divert any suspicion from Sebastian himself. He was also a member of the Church of Blood.

Biography

Working for the Church of Blood

Officer Daily pulled over Laurel when she was drunk-driving and later called her father Quentin Lance, telling him that she went 6 over the limit. He later helped Sebastian kidnap The Mayor to be a subject of The Miracle.[1]

After Sebastian watched a report of The Arrow killing Count Vertigo, Daily told Sebastian that there had been a development with one of the Mirakuru users (Cyrus Gold).[2]

When Roy, Thea and Sin were looking for Max, Daily quickly informed Sebastian. Later, while Roy was taking a photo of the late Max Stanton, Daily told Roy he shouldn't be there.[3]

Daily joined Lance's team to catch Cyrus Gold, and warned Sebastian Blood about the mission. He later was found in the hospital, when Blood came to support Laurel, and each other nodded.[4]

Later, Lance came to talk with Daily and asked him if his arm was alright.[5]

After getting a call from Sebastian Blood, Daily sacked Laurel Lance's apartment in search for drugs. Daily would find unprescribed drugs in Laurel's bedroom, arresting her with a search warrant. He would later pose as "The Masked Man" and kidnap Laurel. He left a message to lure The Arrow and then took Laurel to the warehouse Starling Cannery. When Laurel awoke he taunted her about not having any evidence of her claims against Sebastian Blood. The Arrow showed up and disarmed him when he went for his gun. He got into a confrontation where he fought Oliver unarmed and suddenly disappeared in an instant. Attacking Oliver from behind, he wrestled him to the floor and got him in an armlock. Oliver managed to stab him with an arrow, however Daily grabbed his spare gun and was about to shoot Oliver. Laurel shot Daily just in time to save Oliver. Laurel's suspicion of Sebastian being the masked man would be gone after seeing Daily under the mask.[6]
