Samir "Sam" Armand[1] is the former corrupt district attorney of Star City.

Biography

At some point between May and October in 2017, Armand was appointed the district attorney of Star City. In this position, Armand represented the city in a case against Oliver Queen. However, following Oliver's arraignment, Judge C. McGarvey allowed Oliver free on a $5 million bail and $500,000 bond.[2]

Armand approached police captain Kimberly Hill, a fellow member of Ricardo Diaz's payroll, claiming he finally had enough evidence to run Oliver into the ground and end his term, asking for the full backing of the police force.[3]

It is later revealed that the evidence is actually Roy Harper, who was found and captured by corrupt Star City Police Department officers under Diaz's payroll, with trying unsuccessfully to get him to testify against Oliver in court (regarding his identity as Green Arrow), however, Roy is eventually rescued by Team Arrow; Armand no longer has a case against Oliver.[4]

However, he still refused to drop his case against Oliver. After Anatoly Knyazev was arrested, Armand had him released due to no arrest warrant and because of his allegiance to Ricardo Diaz. Armand and Hill were later summoned to the mayor's office by Oliver who confronted them about them being on Diaz's payroll. Armand revealed that his son had cancer and he needed Diaz's money. When he and Hill refused Oliver's protection for their families, they were fired. Due to this, the two went to news outlets, broadcasting their firing as a ploy by Oliver to obstruct the investigation into him being Green Arrow.[5]

After Oliver used a device that Felicity made on his wrist to copy all of Diaz's files (that contained a list of every person under his payroll) and gave it to Samandra Watson; Armand was arrested along with all the people under Diaz's payroll by the FBI.

Trivia

  • Much like his predecessor, Sam was a corrupt district attorney who was trying to take down Oliver Queen.
    • However, unlike his predecessor, he is a pawn for someone else, as opposed to being the main player. Furthermore, he is also not a psychopath that is consumed with utterly destroying Oliver.
      • Ironically, Earth Two Laurel Lance who used to work for his predecessor in his revenge schemes against Oliver would be his successor.
  • Sam was arrested by the FBI (off-screen) when Ricardo Diaz failed to take over Star City.
