Rowan Nyx liked to play with fire.
She ran towards the fire so others wouldn't have to. That's just who she was. She would always put others before herself. Danger and risk was what she lived for and she couldn't imagine it any other way.
Growing up in the glades she was always faced with danger. But she managed. She had a happy childhood and things seemed to be improving in Starling City's worst area. Until the 1% decided to give up on them.
Everything spiraled out of control and the fires that Rowan was once fascinated and drawn to -- burned her beyond repair.
But from the ashes the Phoenix rose.
And Rowan would never shy away from the fire again.
