Honor, also known as the Silencer, is a member of the Longbow Hunters.
According to Anatoly Knyazev, the Longbow Hunters were perceived as a myth. They consisted of only three assassins, but still stroke fear into all who went up against them, including the League of Assassins, and were believed to have died out by the 1950s.
Allying with Ricardo Diaz
Attack on Star City
Five months after Ricardo Diaz was forced into hiding, the Longbow Hunters broke in an off-site facility of A.R.G.U.S. where they stole prototype B-24, a high densitable renewable battery able to power an entire town.
With the two other members and Diaz away to steal an energy weapon, Silencer was alone at their base when Laurel Lance and Dinah Drake broke into it. Silencer attacked Laurel and used her silencing effect to block any sounds, including the latter's Canary Cry. They fought in hand to hand combat and Silencer managed to defeat her before Dinah Drake intervened, eventually forcing her to retreat.
The group later attempted a break-in on CDC, a secure government facility to steal a biocompound. Silencer was confronted by Dinah Drake and they fought in hand to hand combat. After a back and forth fight, she was about to finish her off when Rene Ramirez injured her with a throwing knife. Silencer attempted to escape the scene but ended up captured.
Refusing to share any information, Laurel Lance started torturing her with her Canary Cry to the point that she got close to dying, however, Honor remained silent. As Felicity Smoak wanted to torture her with a screwdriver and got halted by Laurel, Honor used the screwdriver to escape her cuffs and sneak away, unknowingly carrying a tracker in her belt placed by Felicity.
Honor was later present when Ricardo Diaz confronted Anatoly for betraying him.
Compared to the other Longbow Hunters, Honor rarely speaks, which is a bit akin to her nickname. She seems quite confident and a bit sadistic. After defeating Dinah Drake in a fight she closed in on her and said this was going to be fun.
Powers and abilities

Honor was also able to briefly fight on par against Rene Ramirez but was eventually subdued, and later managed to briefly fight John Diggle eventually knocking him down.

Behind the scenes
- In the main DC Comics continuity, Honor Guest, the Silencer, is a former member of Leviathan, a secret sect in the League of Assassins, led by Talia al Ghul. Eventually deciding to leave the assassin life behind her, she was forced back "into business" by Talia's new enemies. Similarly to her portrayal in the show, she is a former assassin and able to use the sound-dampening field. However, she was never a member of the Longbow Hunters in the comics.
- Additionally, The Silencer was a villain of Captain Marvel on Earth-S. Similarly to the show version of Honor, he plays a much more villainous role, unlike the mainstream version of Honor Guest.
