In the comics, The Silencer is one of the DC Universe’s deadliest assassins…and you’ve never heard of her. Super-strong, highly trained, armed with devastating and stealthy meta-human abilities, the Silencer is virtually invincible. Or at least she was. After decades as Leviathan’s chief assassin, Honor Guest put in her time and managed to get out with her skin intact. Now she lives a normal life with a normal family in a normal house on a normal street. But the past has come back to haunt her in the form of her old employer and a deadly new mission…and Talia Al Ghul won’t take no for an answer. Neither he husband nor son are aware of her previous life (x) 

Honor Guest was a top-ranking member of the League of Assassins who had the ability to literally silence all sounds in her immediate area, thus allowing her to kill whomever she was tasked with taking out without raising suspicion in anyone who might be nearby.  (x)

In Arrow Season 7, The Silencer will be played by Miranda Edwards (The Magicians, Orphan Black) and Silencer is described as “a master of stealth”
