The kind folks who brought us Arrow have been keeping busy, leaving us set to see a handful of new faces come this fall. Characters like Mr. Terrific, Anarky, Atom Smasher, and many more have all been confirmed for season 4 of Arrow. One actor that has been cast for a role unknown, is Rutina Wesley an American actress best known for her role as Tara Thornton on the popular HBO series True Blood. According to Comingsoon.net Rutina has signed on for a multi-episode arc. So who could she be playing? I might have an idea.
If you're not familiar with this face, this is Onyx. She was a member of the League of Assassins until she decided it was best to put that life behind her. She chose life in the Ashram Monastery - a Monastery that Oliver Queen once belonged to. The Ashram's Master was later killed by a rebellious monk named Lars. Onyx then headed to Star City, and sought the help of Green Arrow to take down the villain.
Could we see Oliver belong to the Ashram Monastery in his flashbacks? I have no idea. Besides, Wesley is only signed on for a multi-episode arc, and this story sounds like it would definitely stretch across a couple of episodes. This is only speculation, but I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out to be true. I'd love to see how Arrow would handle this story.
