John Diggle may have started out as Oliver Queen's bodyguard, but now he's a hero all his own on Arrow.

Diggle has hit the streets as nameless back-up, rocked his sci-fi helmet as Spartan and even donned the hood as the Green Arrow himself for a while. Diggle has been with Oliver since the beginning and has rescued him from sudden death more than a few times along the way.

Sure, he's got ripped abs and strong right hook, but Diggle is also the heart of Team Arrow. He's flirted with the dark side once or twice but is always the moral center when things get tough. He's a family man, a father and an inspiration for Oliver.
