"30,000 years ago, masks invested their wearer with authority, like a god!"
—Daily to Laurel Lance, imitating Brother Blood[src]

Officer Daily (died January 22, 2014), also known as Brother Daily (and once posing as Brother Blood, known to the police as "The Masked Man"), was a corrupt police officer of the Starling City Police Department. He was secretly a member of the Church of Blood, working closely with Sebastian Blood. Daily was killed by Laurel Lance after he kidnapped her whilst posing as Brother Blood to divert any suspicion from Sebastian himself.

Biography

Working for the Church of Blood

In November 2013, Officer Daily pulled over Laurel Lance for driving under the influence. After finding that she went 6 over the limit, Daily declined to arrest Laurel and instead called her father, Officer Quentin Lance, informing him of the situation.

Later, Daily used his authority to aid Sebastian Blood in kidnapping Xavier Reed/The Mayor to be a subject of "The Miracle". However, Reed died shortly after being injected with the Mirakuru.[1]

After Sebastian watched a report of the Arrow killing Cecil Adams, Daily told Sebastian that there had been a development with one of the Mirakuru users, Cyrus Gold.[2]

Daily quickly informed Sebastian when Roy Harper, Thea Queen, and Cindy Simone began searching for Max Stanton, an unsuccessful candidate for the Church of Blood. Later, while Roy was taking a photo of Max's corpse, Daily told Roy he shouldn't be there.[3]

Daily joined Lance's team to catch Cyrus Gold, and warned Sebastian Blood about the mission. He later was found in the hospital, when Blood came to support Laurel, the two nodded at each other.[4]

Later, Lance came to talk with Daily and asked him if his arm was alright.[5]

After getting a call from Sebastian, Daily sacked Laurel's apartment in search for drugs. Daily would find unprescribed drugs in Laurel's bedroom, arresting her with a search warrant. He would later pose as the "Masked Man" and kidnap Laurel. He left a message to lure the Arrow and then took Laurel to the warehouse Starling Cannery.

When Laurel awoke, Daily taunted her about not having any evidence of her claims against Sebastian. The Arrow showed up and disarmed Daily when he went for his gun. Daily got into a confrontation where he fought the Arrow unarmed and suddenly disappeared in an instant. Attacking the Arrow from behind, Daily wrestled him to the floor and got him in an armlock. The Arrow managed to stab him with an arrow, but Daily grabbed his spare gun and was about to shoot the vigilante. Laurel shot Daily just in time to save the Arrow. Laurel's suspicion of Sebastian being the masked man would be gone after seeing Daily under the mask.[6]

Personality

Daily was very loyal as he was willing to pose as "Brother Blood", knowing he could possibly be killed to remove any suspicion of Sebastian being "Brother Blood".
