Alter ego

Carrie Hartnell Cutter (born November 21, 1987) [1] , also known as Cupid, is a former police officer of the Starling City Police Department. For a time following her police career, she became obsessed with The Arrow and practiced archery (using arrowheads in the form of a heart). This obsession escalated and she began killing/menacing people in an attempt to get his attention. After he took her down, she was taken in by Amanda Waller as a part of the Suicide Squad. However, she managed to work off her sentence and was released from A.R.G.U.S. custody, only to commence a killing spree and be stopped by Team Arrow.



Early life

Carrie received top marks at school, and also participated in, and helped win many gymnastics competitions for the school. She attended Starling University from 2004 to 2008. There she met Jesse Ruckert, who she eventually got engaged to. However, not long after graduation, he disappeared. [1]

Work as a police officer

Carrie’s SCPD officer review history.

In 2008, Carrie joined the SCPD as a hammer cop, eventually two years later becoming the SWAT unit’s very first female member. At an unspecified point, Carrie’s unit was called in to sort out a bomb threat in The Glades, where the unit was coerced to engage the Culebra crime gang. It’s implied that she once arrested Rene Ramirez. A while later, Carrie became obsessed with a colleague and received therapy from a shrink. [1]

Obsession with the Arrow

When Slade Wilson’s army attacked Starling City, Carrie got assaulted by one of the Mirakuru-enhanced henchman. the Arrow passed by and saved her by shooting the henchman. After this she began to develop an obsession with him. She began to train archery, recruited Kirby Bates, a hacker and began collecting data on the Arrow, and visited crime scenes where he had been involved. In an apartment, she had accumulated a collection of sketches and news articles on him, as well as a collection of his arrows. [1]

Around six months later, Carrie went to another of the Arrow’s suspected crime scenes, at the Wildcat Gym, where Laurel Lance walked past her. She also later walked past a van that John Diggle was parking whilst backing up the Arrow and Ted Grant. Later that night, Carrie injured two policemen who were escorting Isaac Stanzler. When Isaac asked her who she was, she introduced herself as Cupid, before killing him with an arrow. [Two]

She clothed Isaac in a costume similar to that of the Arrow and left him in the streets for the real one to find. Oliver and Diggle found a letter with the address off her apartment in the arrow peak. As they searched her apartment she observed them from a nearby building. She called a cellphone she left there and told him she desired to help him fight against crime, as well as be with him. She also sent a picture of a mob boss she had captured earlier and suggested they should penalize him together. Felicity managed to trace her sim card and they found out her identity. They noticed fertilizer in the background of the picture and connected it to the gardening club Sherwood Florist where Carrie was a member of.

The Arrow and Arsenal broke in Sherwood Florist and split up. Carrie was waiting for them. She sneaked up on Roy and startled him by shooting an arrow next to him. She lightly hit him before he could even warn Oliver. Using his earpiece she taunted the Arrow and told him they were meant for each other. She used the mob boss as a hostage (making him stand on a chair with the bomb vest and a wire detonator around his neck) and began to tell him she dreamed to be with the Arrow. As the Arrow refused she kicked the chair away and fled the scene while the Arrow saved the mob boss. [1] Visiting the hacker he demonstrated her the result of his algorithm and exposed it pointed to Verdant as the base of the Arrow’s operations. She began to smooch him and then killed him by stabbing an arrow in his neck. She visited Verdant during the grand opening she walked past Roy without him recognizing her. Sitting at the bar she looked around for the Arrow. Diggle found out about the algorithm and warned Oliver. After ordering a drink from Thea she got called by Oliver. Lighthearted she joked about him using a club as a base. Oliver attempted to persuade her to meet him to get her away from Thea. She agreed to meet him, however, she promised she would kill everyone in the club if he did not demonstrate up.

Meeting at the place he very first saved her she told him she desired him to be her paramour. Oliver attempted to tell her she isn’t well and that he had talked to her psychiatrist. Carrie mentioned nothing was wrong with her and said she dreamed to be together and called him a hero. Oliver attempted to coax her he couldn’t be with anyone, and made references to his own situation that he couldn’t be with Felicity. Angered by his rejection, she attempted to shoot him. Oliver dodged her shot and disarmed her with a shot of his own. She attacked him and the two got in a fierce brawl. After getting knocked down she kicked the lock of a metal grill and the two fell down and landed on a train track. During the fall Oliver lost his bow, the two continued fighting and she quickly defeated him and cuffed him to the tracks. As he was cuffed down she stood over him and told him that if she could not have him no one would. Oliver attempted to reason with her, however, she ready to die together as a train drove towards them. Oliver dislocated his thumb and escape the handcuffs and pulled her away just in time. Shocked she mentioned he saved her again. Oliver then passed her over to Waller to use for the Suicide Squad to give her something to concentrate her talents and energy on. [1]

Work as part of the Suicide Squad

Carrie was a member of the team that would go to the Republic of Kasnia to rescue United States Senator Joseph Cray who got taken hostage while opening a hospital. John determined to tag along to help Lyla, as they just had been married and he did not want to let her go by herself. [Three]

Carrie, John, Lyla and Lawton parachuted in Kasnia. Cupid asked Lyla about the wedding and tells her how she will spare on flowers to save more money for the dress. She told John she and the Arrow will get married and have children, after which Loyd told her a love-life and family is not possible for people who do what they do. John told him he thinks it is possible and that he is not like Floyd. Floyd said he was not always like he was now.

Carrie, John and Lyla entered the hospital while Floyd took down the guards with his sniper rifle. The Squad busted in and killed the terrorists in a firefight and ready to free the hostages. The senator all of a sudden pulled a gun and said they should not have come here. He shot at Carrie but Floyd tackled her and took the bullet for her. Cupid is visibly touched as the Squad gets away and John helps the shot Floyd. A touched Cupid seemed to be in love with Floyd after he saved her. John stitched Floyd up while getting dissipated for a 2nd by the tattoo with the name of his brother. Over the radio senator Cray explained to them the hostage situation was just theater to make him a hero and permit him to run for president. John and Lyla noticed that the hospital got rigged with explosives and more mercenaries arrived. John and Lyla got desperate as they realized they will die and their child will become an orphan. Floyd encouraged them and told them they will free the hostages and both Lyla and John will get through to get back to their child. His speech seemed to excite Cupid who made some flirting remarks at him.

Cupid, John, and Lyla took down most of the mercenaries, but Senator Cray threatened to activate the bombs while holding the switch. Floyd placed himself on the rooftop and shot the switch from his mitt and killed the mercenaries. After a brief fight in which Carrie killed a enormous mercenary by snapping his neck, the Squad took out most of the mercenaries and guided the hostages out of the building. Cupid and John told Lawton to get down as the building will explode soon. Floyd said he lied and that he will cover their escape from the rooftop so they can make it out alive. Covering them from the roof Floyd supported them as Carrie, John and Lyla fought their way out of the building and got the hostages to safety. As the building exploded, seemingly killing Floyd, Carrie screamed in desperation.

Eventually, Carrie worked on more Suicide Squad missions, managing to work off her sentence and getting released from A.R.G.U.S. custody.

Anti-love crusade

Fighting from the death of Floyd Lawton and her failure at finding love she became persuaded that love was just a lie and that this was something she had to demonstrate to the people. Setting up her base at the storage facility of Colao Wedding Dress Services she began to collect data on recently married celebrity couples, and accumulated a fat collection of pictures and information of them around a shrine. She began by kidnapping celebrity duo Blaine and Shannon. Questioning them she made them both admit their eternal love for each other. She then called it pathetic and repeated the quote of Floyd that love was a bullet to the brain. She then shot them at the same time with her bow and told them that it could also be an arrow through the heart. She left their bods on the streets while placed in the form of a heart, leaving an arrow behind as well as a note telling: Love is Dead.

She targeted the next duo Allison Lee and Robert Joyce. She took them at their wedding, tied them up and drove them away in their car. Sadistically taunting them she noticed she was getting chased by the Green Arrow and Speedy by motor cycle. In the ensuing pursue Speedy managed to board her car. However Cupid drives her car through the wall of a warehouse and knocks her off. Blocking the steering wheel she leaps out and lets Green Arrow corner the car and crash it. As he checked the driver seat she attacked him from behind and knocked him down. Aiming an arrow at him she told him she would tell him to love the afterlife but they both know that is just eternal nothingness. Green Arrow blocks her shot and they engaged in a fight. Carrie told him he was not The Arrow who she was in love with. Green Arrow used a trick arrow to ensnare her and attended to her hostages. Carrie cut herself liberate and escaped by scaling the wall with a grappling hook arrow.

Learning that Oliver Queen was about to marry with Felicity Smoak at the Hochman Hotel, Cupid determined to target them next. Rigging the building with C4, she proceeded to listen to their vows before confronting them in the chapel. She told Oliver that love made him feeble and then shot an arrow in his heart. Oliver got back up and he exposed that his Kevlar vest had blocked the arrow. Cupid demonstrated the detonator of the C4 and told them that love was false and resulted only in death. The recovery of Felicity and their marriage made them look like a fairy tale, by killing them she would showcase the people that love was false. Felicity opposed her and gave her a rousing speech of how her time with Oliver had been the best thing that had happened to her, even if she would die today she would not regret this. Cupid was struck by her speech and Speedy used this to shoot the detonator out of her palm. Carrie fought Diggle and Speedy at the same time and quickly subdued them after a brief fight. She went for the detonator but got ensnared by a trick arrow. As she attempted to free herself Oliver used the gun of Diggle to shoot her with a dart that stunned her.

She was later taken into custody by SCPD. [Four]

Fresh allies

Following her anti love crusade Carrie was placed in Metal Heights. While there she met Chien Na Wei and Liza Warner, eventually partnering up to steal Tobias Church’s money. The three then escaped and went on another killing spree, this time targeting gangs once affiliated to Church. Very first targeting the Chinese Triad, massacring many gang members. They next targeted the Bertinelli Crime Family. This however would be interrupted by the Green Arrow. Carrie and her allies would later target other gangsters who did know the location of the money. Following this they hired many criminals to defend them should anybody interrupt them. Team Arrow would arrive to prevent their escape and fight ensued, during which Carrie manage to injure Rene Ramirez and Curtis Holt. She only stopped when the ACU arrived and arrested her. [Five]

Comeback to Task Force X

At some point she must have been returned to A.R.G.U.S. as Barry Allen and Leonard Snart came across her cell while on a heist at A.R.G.U.S. Barry then noticed that it was the place where the Suicide Squad was kept.


Seemingly playful and flirtatious, she is exposed to go to extreme lengths to sate her desire to be with the Arrow, including killing. Becoming obsessed with the Arrow she seemed to build her entire world around him, and only concentrate on him. Explicitly stating she did not touch Roy and even killed the hacker after he attempted to get intimate with her. Believing that they were meant for each other, she referred to Oliver as her “paramour” and “bf”. Carrie seemed to overlook laws and moral boundaries alike, killing Isaac Stanzler and injuring two police officers just to get his attention. She even threatened to kill everyone in the club if Oliver did not display up. Carrie was shown to get angry when people confronted her with her mental disorder. She claimed that there was nothing wrong with her and strongly disliked the psychiatrist that treated her. After Oliver rejected her, Carrie became enraged, and becoming furious, she attempted to kill him. In a final act, she wished to die with Oliver, telling that if she can’t have him, then no one can. She tied Oliver to the train rails using handcuffs. She wished to die together by being hit by a train. Her illness was furthered when Oliver snapped free and saved her again. Albeit it was only to keep his promise of saving people and not killing, Oliver’s activity caused Carrie to believe that he saved her because he loved her.

As a result of put on Task Force X, Carrie’s personality and behavior seems much more stable, however she still seemed to believe the Arrow and she would be together. She cheerfully asked Lyla about her wedding and told her in details how she and the Arrow will get married. After Floyd Lawton took a bullet for her she became quickly fond of him and seemed to concentrate her desires on him.

Her psychiatrist diagnosed Carrie with attachment disorder. This refers to an inability to form real lasting relationships. She shoves everyone away and fixates on one single person that she feels mirrors her emotional state. She desires honesty and sincerity and can notice when people lie to her.

Carrie’s missions for Task Force X as well as the death of Floyd Lawton powerfully influenced her perception on love. She began to believe in the quote of Lawton that love was a bullet to the brain. She became strapped on displaying the people that love was pathetic and was only making person’s powerless. She became obsessed with this belief and began to kill famous couples in an attempt to make clear to the people that love is death. However, when talking with Felicity Smoak she began to doubt that love was false. This might indicate that her attitude that love is death might be an overreaction to cope with her own failed love life, since the Arrow rejected her and Floyd Lawton died.
