Per EW.com, which first reported the news, this version of DC Comics’ Huntress goes by the alias Helena Bertinelli and is the daughter of a crime boss. Like Arrow, she’s out to right some wrongs, hellbent to avenge her family’s murder. Her quest to destroy her father’s empire will put her on a collision course with the Emerald Archer.

The Huntress will make her debut around Episode 6.

Arrow premieres Wednesday, Oct. 10, at 8/7c, leading into Supernatural.
