The second season of 'Arrow' saw the exit of many characters, but Season 3 promises to feature and include new cast members to join billionaire-turned-hero Oliver Queen in his quest to be a fierce vigilante.

According to reports, model and actress Devon Aoki of "The Fast and Furious" and "Sin City" will join the cast of Arrow as Tatsu Yamashiro.

DC comic fans will be familiarized with the character as Katana, as a special insert character of 1983's "The Brave and the Bold." Aoki's character is a sword-yielding martial arts expert, giving her the codename 'Katana.'

Aoki's addition to the cast will give Arrow Season 3 a different kind of flavor, especially considering the numerous characters that have already been taken out: Moira Queen (Susanna Thompson), Sebastian Blood (Kevin Alejandro), and Isabel Rochev (Summer Glau) were all killed; Locked up in A.R.G.U.S. supermax, Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett) was also taken out, while Sarah Lance (Caity Lotz) was left with the rest of the League of Assassins.

According to TVLine, other characters are expected to appear in Arrow Season 3, as the casting directors are looking for four new characters to include in the roster.

Two new faces will be seen in the present day Sterling City, with tentative roles as Daniel and Seth; and two new other characters named Toshi and Akiko.

Daniel is expected to be Felicity's Smoak's love interest, and is described by Screenrant as an entrepreneur in his 20's, whose expertise focus on "cutting-edge" technology.
