Nyssa al Ghul is the daughter of Ra's al Ghul and the heir to the League of Assassin, an organization of which she is also a member. In her first appearance, she reveals that she is in love with Sara Lance, who she had rescued from the island and nurtured her position in the League, and that they had a romantic relationship. Nyssa later returns with Sara and a group of assassins to battle Slade Wilson and his Mirakuru soldiers with Team Arrow in order to save Starling City. Sara then later rejoins Nyssa to go back to the League after the battle.
Nyssa al Ghul is a fairly popular character despite only having two appearances in the Arrow series so far, this is probably due to her BAMF scenes as an assassin and her canon relationship with Sara Lance. Nyssa and the other female characters in the Arrow fandom are often showcased, especially on Tumblr with gifs and picspams along with other types of fanart.
She commonly appears as a background or secondary character in various Arrow fanfiction, usually as an ally for Team Arrow and is sometimes joined by her father Ra's al Ghul and her half-sister in the comics Talia al Ghul.
