An unnamed woman is the wife of the late Roy Harper, Sr. and the mother of Roy Harper, Jr.. However, due to her son apparently fabricating a story in order to get out of trouble, it seems likely that what is known about her is a lie.


She was said to be addicted to Vertigo, having begun in late 2011 to early 2012. Due to this, her son allegedly stole in order to help support her.[1] It is unknown whether this fact is true, as to whether Roy was lying about this.

Behind the scenes

  • In the DC comics, Roy states that he doesn't know his mother. It is possible this is the case in Arrow, as Roy is implied to have lied about her. However, when he told Thea not to believe every story criminals tell her, it implied that he was in fact not telling the truth about his mother.
