Due to the constant, grueling archery training from her mother, Millie, Bonnie actually became a good archer in her own right, even so far as to go on to win a Bronze Medal in the Olympic Games. To her mother, though, anything short of gold was a disappointment. After that, Bonnie abandoned home and archery (for a period of time) never to talk to her mother again. This would later explain the strained relationship that she and her own daughter would have.
During her stay in Star City, she eventually became inspired by the exploits of Green Arrow and Speedy, and after becoming queen at the National Archery Convention and being crowned the annual Miss Arrowette, King fashions a costume for herself, becoming the first Miss Arrowette, in hopes of using her skills for something more meaningful. Against the other two archer's pleas, she attempted to help then, but it turned out that she was quite clumsy and too vain to wear a mask.
Bonnie briefly dated Oliver Queen, but later married journalist Bernell "Bowstring" Jones, who remembered her from the Olympic Games and, flatteringly enough, considered her a star. Eventually, Green Arrow asked Bonnie not to assist them anymore. This event seemed almost as a precursor, announcing the coming end of Bonnie's short lived career. Shortly after, She had to permanently leave archery because of carpal tunnel syndrome in her wrists.
Before "Bowstring" died a few years after their marriage, Bonnie had a daughter named Cissie King-Jones, who later became Arrowette, under mother's guidance and training.
Bonnie forced her daughter, Cissie, into archery like her mother did to her and forced her into a life of crime fighting. Cissie and her mother's relationship is very strained.
