Who is Nyssa Raatko?
Nyssa Raatko (born May 10, 1985), also known as Nyssa al Ghul, is a former member of the League of Assassins and an ally of the Archer Team. Nyssa is also the daughter of the late Ra's al Ghul, paternal half-sister to Talia al Ghul, Sara Lance's lover and Laurel Lance's mentor / close friend. It was she who brought Sara to Nanda Parbat.
She was also, temporarily, "Ra's al Ghul" and the last person to have owned the title, making the personal choice to end the League of Assassins and end the cycle of the Ra's al Ghul title. After Sara Lance's resurrection, she destroys the Lazarus Well so that it will never be used again. Nyssa decides to leave with Thea Queen and Roy Harper to find and destroy the last remaining Lazarus Wells, which were found by Malcolm Merlyn.
Little is known about Nyssa's life, except that she is the daughter of Ra's al Ghul and apparently a high-ranking member of the League of Assassins. She probably met Sara, who was on the verge of death, after being swept from the Amazon. She picked up Sara and took care of her. Sometime after that, Nyssa fell in love with Sara. She was forced to marry Oliver (Green Arrow), by her father Ra's al Ghul.
Although Nyssa was not a member of the Thanatos League, she had infiltrated the organization to obtain information. She caused an explosion in the organization's HQ and came into conflict with them, however she managed to escape to Star City.

The League of Thanatos:
Nyssa intercepted Thea Queen and Roy Harper, as they were both leaving the city, and informed Thea of the threat the group posed. She sought help from Team Archer to get a mysterious box that Malcolm had left, but they needed to get it before the League of Thanatos. With the help of Oliver Queen, The Queen, Roy Harper, Felicity Smoak and John Diggle, she managed to get a map that revealed the existence of several Lazarus Wells around the world. Together with Thea and Roy, Nyssa went after these remaining Wells to destroy them so that no one can use them for evil, just as her father, Ra's al Ghul, had done.
In a possible future, Nyssa trained Mia Smoak, daughter of Oliver and Felicity. She trained her through the years, starting in her childhood until the beginning of her adult life.
