History: (Daredevil I#190 (fb) - BTS) – A trainee of the Chaste was removed from training by Stick for not making necessary progress. He instead became a sensei, training other warriors in Japan. In time, Elektra Natchios was among his students and he encouraged her to seek out the Chaste for training.

(Daredevil I#190 (fb)) – Elektra returned to her sensei after training with the Chaste for one year but she too was turned away. Elektra told him of a plan to infiltrate the Hand and then turn against them. He warned her that they would corrupt her but knew they would be seeking her out regardless now. The Hand soon captured the sensei and poisoned him. They then placed him in a pit with sais to arm himself. Elektra was told to pass a test for initiation. The put her into the pit and she attacked and swiftly killed the man there before realizing it was her sensei. She cried out in horror at what she had done.
