History: (Daredevil I#296 (fb) – BTS) – Spear, a ninja loyal to the Hand, was recruited by the Chaste. His training was rushed due to times being desperate and the heroic ninjas had no idea that he was loyal to their dark enemies.  

(Daredevil I#296) – The Chaste's Stone, Spear, Flame and Star, arguing about tactics now that Stick was dead, attacked a Hand warehouse in New York City, where Izanami and Jonin as well as many ninjas were battling Daredevil while keeping several civilians strung up, including Christine Harris, Jerry "The Whale" Sabini, Derek Tully and Pamela Sennet. After defeating the ninjas, the Chaste liberated the civilians then Spear battled Izanami before she fled outside, where the police waited and Izanami was shot and killed. The Chaste quickly faded away. In civilian clothes, Stone soon reached out to Matt Murdock, saying they needed further help from the Hand, and Daredevil soon joined the Chaste as they waited for Izanami to come back to life and attack them. Spear turned on the others, knocking out Star as Izanami attacked. A massive fight broke out and Izanami tried to kill Daredevil but Spear rushed in to do it himself. Daredevil defeated Spear then used his weapon to kill Izanami. Stone comforted Daredevil, reminding him that Izanami wasn't even human.
