History: (Elektra I#18 (fb) – BTS) – Athos worked for Ambassador Hugo Natchios in Greece. Hugo's wife Christina gave birth to baby Elektra while they were gone and Christina died shortly afterward. Athos helped raise Elektra for Hugo, along with staff men Theo and Stavros. He told her comforting things about her mother as she grew up.

(Daredevil I#168 (fb)) – Acting as bodyguard, Athos accompanied Elektra to college in America at Columbia University. Athos was protective of Elektra when she met students "Foggy" Nelson and Matt Murdock, though he did leave her alone briefly when a student called him "bullethead."

(Daredevil I#168 (fb) - BTS/Wolverine II#106 (fb) – BTS) – After Hugo Natchios was kidnapped by criminals including Carlos and Louie, only to be accidentally shot in police crossfire, Athos tried saving Hugo and Elektra but was shot multiple times himself. He later lost an eye and a leg later in the hospital.

(Elektra I#18 (fb)) – Elektra later returned to her father's estate in Greece and found Athos, Stavros and Theo interacting there.

(Wolverine II#106 (fb) – BTS) – Years later, Stavros, Theo and Athos apprehended Sawyer, the last living man who'd initially taken Hugo hostage. They kept him strung up.

(Wolverine II#106) – Elektra brought Wolverine home with her to Greece. Athos exited, wearing an eyepatch and walking with a crutch, and he bowed before Elektra, apologizing for not stopping the death of her father years earlier. She reminded him that he was family and would always have a place in her home. With Stavros and Theo, Elektra and Athos then all sat down for a meal. They told Elektra that they knew where Sawyer was but she asked them to simply let the man live. Later, they chose to let him go, honoring her wishes.
