Chase (died February 2015) was the former DJ at Verdant who was secretly a member of the League of Assassins sent to kill Thea Queen as retribution against Malcolm Merlyn.

Biography

During auditions for a new DJ at Verdant, Chase arrived, claiming he was good enough to be the DJ and the others could leave. Thea Queen told him that if he claimed to be that good, he should just audition as everyone else but Chase said he doesn't audition and left.

At Verdant's reopening, Chase dropped by to watch the "train wreck" DJ fail to excite the clubbers. With no other option, Chase was hired by Thea on the spot and finally brought life to the club. After the club closed for the night, Thea complimented Chase's skills and gave him his cut for the night. However, Chase turned down the money shared a kiss with Thea, which he took as his payment.[1]

Chase later called Thea, thinking that their kiss had meant something, but Thea shot him down.[2]

Chase later dropped by Verdant and encountered Thea, claiming he wanted to stash his possessions at the club due to Brick's takeover of the Glades. The next day, when Thea told him she wasn't leaving, Chase called Sarab to confirm that Malcolm Merlyn wasn't leaving Starling City, revealing himself to be a member of the League of Assassins.[3]

Soon afterwards, Chase bumped into Thea outside Verdant. The two kissed and went back to Thea's loft, where they spent the evening together. Afterwards, Chase tried to poison her with cyanide in her red wine. However, Thea detected the scent and revealed her father taught her red wine was effective in covering the scent of poison. Thea then attacked Chase with a cheese knife, but he dodged and blocked her shots. Revealing himself as an agent of the League, Chase and Thea fought and Chase ended up overpowering her. Chase revealed himself to Thea as a member of the League and tried to kill her with the knife by slitting her throat. Suddenly, Arsenal intervened and fought him. Chase eventually knocked Arsenal down but was then shot in the back by Malcolm. With his cover now blown, Chase committed suicide by drinking cyanide.[4]

Personality

Chase was seemingly an overconfident DJ proud of his skills. He was shown to be a carefree and fun-loving individual who enjoyed bringing life to a party.

However, Chase was later revealed to be a ruthless, manipulative and highly committed assassin. His previous charm was simply a means to complete his mission of killing Thea Queen on Ra's al Ghul's orders. Chase was fully devoted to Ra's and the League's cause as he quickly took his own life when Malcolm had him cornered. 

Despite his commitment to the League's mission, Chase did seem to grow genuinely fond of Thea. When trying to assassinate her, he attempted to poison Thea instead of an otherwise gruesome death.
