Biography Edit

James Holder was an unscrupulous business owner who lived in Starling City in the early 2010s. He owned a company that manufactured smoke detectors. Holder installed defective smoke detectors in low-income housing projects in The Glades, which resulted in fires yielding multiple deaths.

Holder also had an interest in making a financial bid for a company called Unidac Industries. This conflicted with the interest of another corrupt businessman, Warren Patel. Patel hired an assassin named Deadshot to take him out.

Oliver Queen, in his guise as The Hood, apprehended James Holder, but Deadshot was able to put a bullet into him before Queen could take him into custody. The Starling City Police Department found him floating dead in his swimming pool.
