S.H.I.E.L.D. PERSONNEL BRIEF: Elektra
Classification: Freelance Assassin
Criminal Record: Extensive. Wanted in five states and nineteen countries for murder and attempted murder.
Abilities: Extensive weapons training, hand to hand combat master, expert at most known black ops and espionage techniques.
Unique Weapons: Elektra prefers twin sai, a traditional Okinawan dagger with two prongs curving up from the handle.
Known History: Daughter of the Greek ambassador to the United States, Elektra’s father was assassinated during a terrorist attack on Columbia University, where Elektra was a student. Embittered by her loss, Elektra dropped out of school and began wandering the globe, ultimately coming into contact with the secret ninja organization known as The Hand. Trained by The Hand to be one of its top assassins, Elektra ultimately tired of their rule and went into business for herself. Serving as a time for the personal enforcer to New York’s Kingpin of Crime, she was murdered by Bullseye as an “audition” to replace her.
Elektra was allegedly resurrected by The Hand using necromancy; and it is believed she once again serves her former masters.
SIGINT (Signal Intelligence) chatter suggests some kind of romantic relationship, past or current, between Elektra and the masked vigilante Daredevil, but S.H.I.E.L.D. has been unable to satisfactorily confirm this.
Observations: “PsyOps’ profile of Elektra suggests that despite periodic attacks of nobility she remains too psychologically unstable to be entrusted by SHIELD with assignments in the field.
