Biography

Mayoral tenure

Sometime after Sebastian Blood's death, Celia succeeded him as mayor of Starling City.

Celia had the misfortune of being responsible for the city at the time when Danny Brickwell made his bid for power in the Glades. Brick first orchestrated the theft of vast quantities of material evidence needed in trials of known criminals, and then proceeded to kidnap the mayor herself (and three aldermen), holding her ransom against a complete withdrawal of SCPD and other municipal workers and forces from the Glades.

The League of Assassins work to frame the Arrow for a killing spree on Ra's al Ghul's orders, to convince Oliver Queen to join the League and become Ra's successor as leader of the League. To further frame the Arrow, Maseo Yamashiro (dressed as the Arrow) kills Celia.

Legacy

Celia's death was wrongfully pinned on the Arrow, leading to a citywide manhunt for the vigilante.[1]

Celia received justice for her murder after Maseo Yamashiro[2] and Ra's al Ghul's deaths.[3]

No one wanted to run for mayor of Star City for months after Celia and the previous mayors' deaths.[4][5] However, Ruvé Adams eventually succeeded Celia as mayor.[6]
