Dinah Laurel Lance (born November 15th, 2349) is a female Human, a citizen of Star City and one of its most beloved public servants. Laurel is the eldest daughter of Quentin Lance and Dinah Lance (after whom she was named), the older sister of Sara Lance, she was a lawyer who held the position of assistant district attorney and was previously a former legal aid attorney. However, after the death of her sister she was inspired to take up vigilantism and received training from Ted Grant and later by her close friend and her sister's former lover, Nyssa al Ghul. She eventually joined Team Black Canary and became known as The Canary, the second Canary of her beloved city.


Laurel is idealistic, intelligent, hard-working, and fights hard to get what she wants. She is a competent, upstanding lawyer and works to stand up for the innocent and what is right, despite the corruption in Star City. She can be stubborn, feisty, and independent and doesn't like to be told what to do. Laurel is attracted to troublemakers. However, Laurel shows she has a big heart, being open-minded and inquisitive, having a tendency to see the best in the people around her.


  • Pistol: Laurel is very proficient in using guns. She keeps one holstered on her left leg though rarely uses it, in only of times of emergencies.
  • Black Canary suit: Laurel wears a black leather suit while fighting crime as Black Canary. The suit is a modified version of the one used by her late sister. She also wears the black mask and used to wear the blonde wig prior to abandoning it to hide her identity from her enemies.

Laurel's tactical tonfa

  • Tactical tonfas: Laurel later used a tactical tonfa or side-handle baton, like the one used by SCIS officers. She is able to wield this weapon proficiently while fighting enemies including League of Assassins members. After, five months, she has adopted a second tonfa when facing H.I.V.E., to help her deal with multiple skilled opponents.
  • Canary Cry: An updated version of the sonic device that both Sara and Laurel used. This device was made by Cisco Ramon as a favor to Laurel.
