History

Personal History

Although his exact height has not been given, the Greek assassin Constantine Drakon is a short individual. As a child he was teased for this by other children. Once he started killing people at the age of ten, however, he found he was no longer sensitive about his stature. He claims that he had nothing strange or traumatic in his upbringing to turn him to murder, he was simply curious to see what he could do. Discovering that he was a prodigy at killing, Constantine proceeded to make a living out of it. He considers what he does not just a job but a vocation, and takes pride out of the businesslike manner in which he operates.

Coming to Star City

When the immigrant workers of the corrupt "Elevast" construction company developing in Star City began mutating into Troll-like beasts because of illegal Beta-Vaccine testing, the company hired Constantine Drakon. Drakon's job was to eliminate the monsters and cover up the link between them and the corporation. Green Arrow's investigations into the monsters put him in direct confrontation with the assassin. In their first encounter Drakon soundly defeated Green Arrow, and crucified him Green Arrow with his own arrows. He chose not to kill the archer because he wasn't being paid enough to kill superheroes yet.

Drakon's next victim was attorney "Joanna Pierce", niece of Black Lightning, shortly after she had discovered evidence of the illegal vaccine. Joanna Pierce had recently met and become involved with Oliver Queen. Although they had broken up almost immediately after starting a relationship, her death would greatly disturb him for some time to come.

Drakon would subsequently invade the Green Arrow household looking for copies of Joanna Pierce's evidence and face Connor Hawke, Ollie's son in battle. Connor was losing the battle badly when Speedy (Mia Dearden) arrived to help. Drakon grabbed Mia from behind as a human shield while Connor focused his bow on them. Drakon was defeated only after Connor actually shot him through Mia's shoulder, and then blew up the house with Drakon in it.

After that Drakon did not appear again until he was hired by Brick as part of a revenge scheme against Green Arrow. Drakon attacked Roy Harper ("Arsenal," and formerly Speedy), scarring his throat and taking him prisoner. Mia and Connor again squared off against Drakon, who again outclassed them in martial arts skill. But the two heroes outwitted him for a second time, luring him into a trap set by Shift of the Outsiders.

One Year Later

During the Crawling Through the Wreckage storyline, Deathstroke the Terminator was caught by Green Arrow (arguably on purpose), and went to prison to meet with Drakon. The two of them broke out of prison and confronted the Arrow Family. Despite being outnumbered 4 to 2, Deathstroke comments that Team Arrow "should have brought more guys." The two of them are defeated and forced to escape when the Justice League arrives to rescue Team Arrow.
