That's the thing about daughters. When they see you die at the hands of one self-righteous hero, they really don't want to see it happen again.

Nora was then taken by Oliver Queen, before being returned to Damien Darhk by Thea Queen. Nora was to spend her last moments with her father, as they waited for the world to be destroyed in nuclear fire, only for Team Arrow to put an end to Damien's plans. However, she later grew up to be a follower of the mysterious demonic being known as Mallus, and became involved in resurrecting her father, desperately wanting to save him from his dark fate.

History

Nora was born to Damien Darhk and Ruvé Adams, the only child of the couple. When her dad returned home to decorate the Christmas tree, she joyfully hugged him and later he helped her to put the star on the top as they all embraced.

Arrow

When a man name Lonnie Machin raided her house and took her and Ruvé hostage, Team Arrow came and rescue her and her mother. When Lonnie is in police custody, Ruvé presented a fake identity for Nora and herself.

Later on, when Damien brought Oliver's son William, Damien asked Nora to play with him.

Nora and Ruvé ventured to the Tevat Noah underground facility, accompanied by Malcolm Merlyn, only to be kidnapped by Lonnie Machin. In the ensuing fight of Machin with Team Arrow, Tevat Noah's life support system was compromised, and the facility was effectively sabotaged. Ruvé's dying wish was for Oliver to protect Nora and save her from the surrounding explosion.

When Damien was about kill Donna, Speedy threatened to kill Nora if Damien did not let Donna go. He agreed letting donna go, and reuniting with his daughter, before sending a platoon of Ghosts after Team Arrow. Nora and Damien went into hiding underground, only to be interrupted by Green Arrow, who challenged Damien to one final battle.

It is unknown what to Nora after that, but it is presumed that she started to go by her full name Eleanor possibly distance herself to hide from her childhood and grew up to be a follower of Mallus to resurrect her father.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow

Nora went back in time to the year 1895 in London where her father's corpse appear as a time displaced anachronism. Meanwhile, she is a employee at the service of Henry Stein and the  cult also known as Order of the Shrouded Compass. They gathered fresh blood at the order to sustain her father's body in preparation for a ritual to resurrect him during the blood moon.

When the activities of the cult drew in Rip Hunter and the Legends, she went on to ensnare Zari Tomaz with a message from her deceased brother. Later, she steals her Air Totem and succeeds in resurrecting her father. During the battle with the Time Bureau and Legends, Zari recovered her Air Totem, but Nora and her father escaped.
