Quote1 Your heart is dark like mine, Oliver. Quote2
-- Vordigan Disciple

Vordigan (a.k.a the Dark Archer) is Oliver Queen's former mentor and a member of a Celtic cult of assassins. After Oliver left the group, Vordigan left to find him in order to fulfill his role as a "master archer." The Dark Archer shot Lois Lane with his arrow through her shoulder. The Dark Archer then attacked Chloe Sullivan at Watchtower. The Dark Archer then sought out Mia Dearden and kidnapped her, as he placed her in a maze. He told Oliver that he had to fulfill his role by succeeding his master. Vordigan went after Mia after Oliver refused to kill him. After he found Mia, he shot three arrows at her. Oliver saw them and jumped in front of Mia. Just as the arrows got close Clark Kent ran in front of Oliver and saved him. While Clark was in front of him, Oliver shot an arrow at Vordigan hitting him in the same place he hit Lois. However, Oliver did not kill Vordigan, only stopped him and saved Mia.

Later it was mentioned that Vordigan is now incarcerated.

Somehow released from his incarnation, Vordigan was now a part of the Toyman's sinister league of villains known as the Marionette Ventures. At their meeting, each member was assigned a target from the Justice League. Vordigan's target was none other than his former apprentice: the Green Arrow.



  • Arrows and a Bow
  • Vordigan was portrayed by Steve Bacic for one episode of season nine. Steve Bacic also played a mechanic who was killed by Jeremy Creek in the first episode of the series.
  • Vordigan is very similar to the DC Comics Character Merlyn.
  • Vordigan has no trouble hurting people. He feels very strongly about his code. He is even willing to die for his beliefs. He holds Oliver in high in his respect, but hates that he won't kill him to obey that code.
