He wasn't always an archer. He wasn't always a vigilante. He wasn't always a CEO or a philanthropist or a mayor. In fact, Oliver Queen started out as little more than a pretty playboy born with a silver spoon in his mouth and seemed destined to spend a life with fast cars, fast women and more cash than most people see in a lifetime.

All of that changed one night in the Pacific when Oliver wound up losing his life, his father and his sense of self in a shipwreck that left him marooned on an island for the next five years. He learned to put aside his selfishness and dedicate himself to being selfless. He learned to put aside the inclination to be lazy and spoiled and pushed himself to be the best at everything, to learn to fight from those who sought to be beacons of justice in an increasingly unjust world. Just as the Queen's Gambit had gone under and come back up in pieces so did Oliver; he'd gone down into the ocean off Lian Yu and come back up stronger and more resilient than ever.

No longer a spoiled party boy, Oliver is a closed off man instead. He keeps everyone at arms' length, even those he loves, and pushes people away in a misguided attempt to keep them safe from harm. He thinks of himself as a vessel to dispense justice and punishment as needed and doesn't spend much time thinking about his own needs and wants. He's self-flagellating; unlike the spoiled boy who couldn't take responsibility for anything, his center has shifted to someone who bears the burden of everything, even that he can't control.

He's cool under pressure for the most part, except when it comes to those people he cares about the most. He has a deep loyalty for his city, Star City, and will do anything to defend and protect its people from the numerous villains who seek to destroy it. He has his own sense of right and wrong that doesn't always align itself with the law of the land but doesn't allow that to make him hesitate or shirk his duties; Oliver isn't afraid to do what needs to be done in order to set things to rights even if it puts him on the opposite side of the law or his closest friends and family.

He can be ruthless in his pursuit of what's right. He can be relentless, not ceasing until he's run down every lead and exhausted every avenue of recompense. Oliver has been tempered in fire and every time he's tested, every time he's pushed down he rises up stronger still.

In spite of his changes, though, Oliver can still be warm and caring. He's still incredibly capable of networking with a crowd and good at flashing a smile for photographers. He knows how to charm the socks off someone if he dedicates the energy to it - he just rarely finds himself in that position any longer. He reserves this part of himself for the show, for the glitz and glamour of news coverage and mayoral campaigns, and his true self he keeps hidden down beneath many layers. It's complicated, always, and Oliver prefers it that way.

Outside his normal milleu, Oliver will keep himself tightly wound at first, uncertain if this place is another trick from the League or any of his other myriad enemies or if it truly is some sort of island well-removed from the politics of Star City and his own life

CHARACTER INFORMATION

NAME: Oliver Queen
CANON: Arrow
AGE: 30
CANON POINT: 4x18 - Eleven Fifty Nine

BACKGROUND: Here.
INCENTIVE:

Oliver Queen will do any and everything to save his city and protect his family. If he was given the opportunity to afford Star City protection, he would give everything - up to his life - to make that happen. In his own canon, he has played a dangerous game with the League of Assassins and became the heir to Ra's Al Ghul just to ensure that his little sister and the city he loves so much were safe from destruction.

It is this single-minded focus that would bring him to Eudio and would drive him to fully consent to anything within Eudio's walls to be able to keep those he cares about safe. While Oliver has had some selfish tendencies in the past, he works hard to be utterly selfless and giving himself over to a sexual contract is hardly beyond what he would do to protect his city and his family.

Furthermore, once established in Eudio proper, he would want to protect those he met within the confines of the game as well and would want to ensure the system works and that no one comes to harm. He would fully embrace the requirements laid upon him and then some because that's the kind of man that he is.

FIT:

Oliver is an incredibly sexual man. At his canon point, he has just come out of an intense, long-term relationship but in the past he has had no problem with casual sex (sometimes to his detriment, as he's been known to cheat.) While he does prefer sex within the confines of a relationship, he can also appreciate the value of a good time with no strings attached and I think this will make him a good fit for the particular atmosphere that Eudio requires.

Oliver's only qualms about being in a game that requires sex is consent but since Eudio itself requires consent from the parties who live, work and play there, Oliver will have no issue abiding by these rules. He wants to keep people safe, always, and will feel protective toward any partners he may have over the course of his journey in the game. It's a dynamic that I as a player look forward to playing and look forward to developing that type of CR with already established characters.

Please feel free to ask me for revisions or additional samples and I will be happy to provide!


ANYTHING ELSE?

Oliver is a extremely well-trained archer and hand-to-hand fighter with paramilitary experience. He does not have any magical or mutant-like powers, though, and is a baseline human being.

Keeping a secret identity away from someone as savvy as Felicity Smoak had proven to be quite the undertaking and now that she knew, it made things a hell of a lot easier for Oliver. She was quite the executive assistant, as it were, and translating her from his public, corporate life to his private one had proven a very smart move on his part.

He could focus on saving the city and not keeping secrets from someone he trusted and cared about. Of course, it came with its own problems, namely, how to keep her safe. Now that Felicity knew his secret and knew exactly what he was up to in his down time (and, often, that she assisted with in hers), he had a burden to keep her protected and far away from those who might want to harm her. It was just the three of them, really - he, Dig and Felicity - and nobody else shared in this part of his life.

He could tell, sometimes, with the way she watched him that she wanted more. It was an intriguing prospect and one that Oliver himself could never think too much on. What would it be like to be with her, to have her challenging him on a personal level as much as she did on a professional one? What would it look like to see her let go of the million things that constantly ran through her brain and, instead, to see her focus all of that passion and knowledge and intensity on him? He didn't know. He couldn't find out.

If it came across as gruff, he didn't mean for it to, and he tried to tamp it down and push it away as best he could. He spent hours training just to keep from acting on his stupid, irrational impulses where Felicity Smoak was concerned and that's where he was now, hanging from a pipe deep in the basement, trying to focus his attention on his body and his conditioning and not on Felicity Smoak's charming babble.
