- —Mina Fayad to Floyd Lawton on her role in H.I.V.E.[src]
Mina Fayad (died 2015) was a member of H.I.V.E. that posed as an A.R.G.U.S. agent and acted as a recruiter for the secret organization's allies, such as Floyd Lawton. After working loyally for the organization for years, she was slain by Damien Darhk in his show of force before the eyes of Jeremy Tell, a meta-human criminal Mina managed to recruit.
Several years later, Fayad returned to Star City from Markovia, having hired Jeremy Tell to deal with the vigilante problem in the city. When Fayad presented Tell to H.I.V.E.'s leader Damien Darhk, Darhk was uncertain about Tell's abilities, but Tell proved himself by killing one of Darhk's disloyal "Ghosts".
John Diggle later received information from an A.R.G.U.S. operative that Fayad had put out the hit on Andy Diggle, and tailed her, ambushing her and Darhk's men that were protecting her. Diggle managed to kill several of Fayad's bodyguards, but she managed to escape.
After failing to kill the Green Arrow, Tell was threatened by Damien. Fayad tried to calm down Damien, but he then turned on her, scolding her for causing him to lose men in the name of protecting her. Damien then told Jeremy to try and kill him, but when Jeremy threw his card at Damien, he stopped it in mid-air with his powers. He lectured Fayad about how he wasn't a charlatan, and that his powers were real, before he killed her with Jeremy's card.
