Character Details

Elektra Natchios is the daughter of a Greek diplomat. She is raised by her father, mostly through tutors and nannies.

Excelling in gymnastics as a young girl, she switches to martial arts by the time she's about nine. Studying with a private sensei, Elektra earns her first black belt by age twelve.

Attending Columbia University, Elektra meets Matt Murdoch. They start dating, and share many secrets. She learns about his senses, and they spar together. During this time, her father is accidentally killed by a cop during a terrorist incident. Seeing that the system of justice that Matt so strongly believes in has failed her, Elektra breaks off the relationship and drops out of Columbia.

Trying to find a purpose, Elektra takes up with the clan of warriors known as the Chaste. Studying with them, she remains until their leader, Stick, senses the darkness within her and asks her to leave. Reluctantly, she complies. Trying to prove herself to him, Elektra infiltrates the Hand, a rival group of ninja assassins. They teach her their ways, and as a part of her initiation she kills the sensei who taught her as a girl.

Elektra escapes the Hand and works as a freelance mercenary assassin. Back in New York again, she crosses paths with Daredevil, who disapproves of her new profession. Elektra discovers that Daredevil is actually Matt Murdoch, and they still have feelings for each other. The two work together against the Hand for a time.

Kingpin hires Elektra as his chief assassin, and she regularly crosses purposes with Daredevil. She declines to kill Foggy Nelson when he recognizes her.

Bullseye, Kingpin's former chief assassin, tracks Elektra down and kills her with one of her own sai. Mortally wounded, she crawls back to Daredevil and dies in his arms.

The Hand steals Elektra's body, wishing to resurrect her and put her under their control. Matt Murdoch interrupts the ritual, and along with Stone (a member of the Chaste), they recover Elektra's body. Matt tries to complete the ritual himself, but fails. When Stone manages to resurrect her, however, it's shown that Matt's attempt somehow purifies Elektra. The Hand's evil is purged from her at last.
