First appearance


Quentin Lance is a detective for the Starling City Police Department, and the father of Laurel and Sara Lance. When Sara was killed in the Queen's Gambit crash, Quentin was not able to grieve in a healthy manner, and this cost him his marriage. Consequently, he threw himself into his work, growing estranged from Laurel. When Arrow returned to Starling City alive, Quentin was immediately suspicious and resentful. Quentin disapproves of vigilantes, so when "the Hood" begins his crusade against Starling City's corrupt elite, Quentin sets out to capture him. Despite some early signs that he may be seeing the vigilante as a necessary evil, Quentin's obsession with capturing Arrow has apparently intensified to the point that he is willing to use his own daughter as bait.


  • Quentin Lance is played by the actor Paul Blackthorne.


  • Quentin had a drinking problem after his daughter Sara presumably died. [1]
