Elektra is a kunoichi – female ninja assassin – who wields a pair of bladed sai as her trademark weapon. She was the daughter of a Greek ambassador who studied the martial arts as an adolescent. While in the US with her father, she began studies in political science at New York’s Columbia University. A year later, Elektra and her father were held hostage by terrorists in a building on campus. Wearing a scarf as a mask, Matt Murdock (Daredevil) with Elektra’s help defeated the terrorists. However, a policeman mistook Elektra’s father for one of the terrorists and shot him dead. Emotionally shattered, Elektra decided she no longer believed in the law and wanted to withdraw from the world.

She eventually studied martial arts with a sensei in Japan but later left to join the secret organisation of martial artists headed by Stick, who was also Murdock’s sensei. She spent a year in Stick’s order and greatly developed her martial arts skills. But, Stick asked her to leave the group because she was still filled with pain over her father’s death and hatred for the world she blamed for it.
