(Daredevil Annual I#7/1) - When several mutated Hydra subjects escaped, Baron Strucker sent his special operatives after them. Crippler was sent to apprehend Sathan, Takimoto was sent after Gullotine, and Dakini was sent after Cassandra Romulus.

(Punisher Annual II#4/2 (fb) - BTS) - Dakini got word that Crippler had betrayed Strucker in his hunt for Sathan, and Sathan had been executed. She realized that Strucker would not tolerate more mistakes.

(Punisher Annual II#4) - Takimoto and Dakini found a bloody scene, where Guillotine had committed murder. Takimoto proposed they work together, but Dakini chose to go off on her own.

(Captain America Annual I#10/2 (fb) - BTS) - Dakini kept tracking Romulus and collating data about Guillotine and Sathan's experiences with Daredevil and Punisher.

(Captain America Annual I#10/2) - Checking into a lousy motel, Dakini took time to send her intel into Hydra, but she destroyed her intel after questioning Strucker's orders. Loading her gun, she was determined to finish the job against Romulus. Dakini tracked Romulus and then shot her from a rooftop, blasting her into a room containing Captain America and Nick Fury. Cap rushed from the building and fought Dakini on the rooftops. Romulus cut Dakini free from her zipline, so Dakini drew blades, but Cap managed to disarm her. Romulus was tempted to kill Dakini, but she instead dropped her to the ground, leaving Cap to get her medical attention.
