Fictional character biography 
Edward "Eddie" Fyers, was employed by the CIA to shoot and kill the rogue archer Shado. He appeared frequently in Grell's run on the Green Arrow ongoing series, occasionally in the summer bi-weekly Green Arrow arcs with Shado. Over the course of his appearances, Fyers became less of an enemy to Oliver Queen, aka Green Arrow, and the two often became begrudging allies. Fyers was untrustworthy, however, and would generally leave Green Arrow holding the bag, including implicating Oliver in a terrorist attack on the Panama Canal. After Mike Grell left the Green Arrow series at issue #80, Chuck Dixon and Jim Aparo further developed the character. He grew to be a father figure to Connor Hawke, Oliver's son and the second to bear the name Green Arrow. Their relationship grew after Oliver died in a plane explosion near Metropolis while fighting off eco-terrorists (vol. 2 #101). Eddie had promised Oliver to look after his son if anything were to happen to him, which he did, even after Oliver returned from the dead in the Quiver storyline. Fyers was seriously injured in the mini-series Connor Hawke: Dragons Blood, written by Dixon in 2006. He had severe burns all over his body, which he had gotten by protecting Connor and Shado. He was last seen at the wedding of Green Arrow and Black Canary.
In other media 
Edward Fyers appears in the CW TV show, Arrow as the field commander for a mercenary unit which also includes Bill Wintergreen and Slade Wilson on the same island where Oliver Queen is stranded. Fyers is portrayed by Sebastian Dunn.
In his debut episode "Damaged", some time after Oliver was shipwrecked on Lian Yu (the name of The Island), Fyers' men captured Oliver and took him to their camp. Oliver was brought in front of him, and Fyers showed him a picture of Yao Fei, some time ago, in a military uniform. When questioned, Oliver stated that he'd never seen the man, but Fyers could easily tell that he was lying. He asked a second time, but Oliver wouldn't talk, so Fyers sent in Wintergreen. Wintergreen proceeded to cut in to Oliver, with Edward watching on. When Deathstroke was finished, Fyers instructed him to kill Oliver, only to be stopped by Yao Fei. In the mid-seasn finale "Year's End", Fyers explains to Oliver that the Island is a prison for dangerous criminals, and that his unit was tasked to purge the facility after it was shut down. In the eleventh episode, it is implied that Yao Fei and Fyers are working together. In the fourteenth episode, "The Odyssey", we see that he was hired by someone after Oliver unsuccessfully talked to Yao Fei about escape. Wintergreen is then instructed by Fyers to fight Oliver, but Slade Wilson (Wintergreen's former best friend) sabotaged the site, and resulting in Wintergreen's supposed death by stabbing in the right eye. In the episode's final moments it's revealed that Fyers is using the Island as a staging area, preparing an operation for an unknown client. It is also revealed how he got Yao Fei to work for him by holding his daughter, Shado, as collateral. In the eighteenth episode "Salvation", she is used by Fyers to force Oliver to give up a guidance chip from a missile-system, much to Yao-Fei's shock. A fight breaks out with Slade ambushing Fyers' men, and Shado attacks Fyers. Yao-Fei lets himself get shot, while the three retreat, only to find their bargaining part was stolen. in the episode "Darkness on the Edge of Town", Fyers, having no further use for him, shot him in the head and killed him after having him record a confession to the Chinese Government for Ferris air's bombings. In the "Sacrifice", the Season One finale, after Oliver redirects the missile to hit the island, he takes Shado hostage and threatens to kill Shado. Oliver points his arrow and Shado directs with her head to move more to the left which Oliver does and kills Fyers.
