Lyle Bolton is a mercenary and a member of the Renegades.
As part of the Renegades, Bolton helped keep Felicity Smoak hostage for Clinton Hogue. Once they'd realized that Hogue was late, Lyle tried to call him, but he didn't answer. Suddenly, The Arrow, Arsenal and The Huntress crashed in from the ceiling. Bolton used his suit to electrify Arsenal and destroy one of The Arrow's arrows. Before anyone could do anything, he electrocuted everyone and took Felicity and The Huntress hostage, forcing Oliver to choose one. Oliver seemingly chose The Huntress. As Lyle released her, The Huntress turned around and knocked him out, taking Felicity back. They took off Lyle's base equipment and tied the Renegades up, before sending an anonymous tip to the police.
