Elektra Natchios was the daughter of a Greek ambassador, and at college age, took up studying political science at Columbia University in New York, where she met the young Matt Murdock (later, Daredevil.) Murdock and Elektra fell in love, and Murdock revealed to her his superhuman sensory abilities. Later, Elektra and her father were held hostage by terrorists, and Elektra (who studied martial arts since childhood) helped a masked Murdock defeat their opponents. Unfortunately, a policeman shot Elektra’s father, thinking him one of the terrorists. Distraught, and with her faith in law and order shattered, Elektra left her school, Murdock, and the United States.

She soon found herself studying martial arts in Japan, but left to join an even more exclusive, worldwide secret organization of martial artists, which was led by Stick, who would also train Daredevil. Eventually, Stick had her leave the group, claiming that her grief over her father’s death would still hold her back from her full potential. Elektra later infiltrated the Japanese assassin guild known as the Hand (hoping to gain favor from Stick by subverting the Hand eventually.) Serving the Hand, they bade her kill her former sensei (not Stick) and soon corrupted her, although Elektra finally rebelled and fled.

Spending her time as a bounty hunter and assassin, she later came across Daredevil, learning his true identity. Although neither could accept the other’s choice of occupation, they still loved each other. Elektra was hired to kill Daredevil’s friend, Foggy Nelson, but could not bring herself to when Foggy recognized her as “Matt’s girl.” Soon afterward, Elektra was killed by Bullseye, trying to prove himself as the Kingpin’s cheif assassin.

The Hand later attempted to resurrect Elektra, with Stone, a member of Stick’s organization, completing the process. Daredevil’s love apparently “purifued her spirit.” Elektra continued to wander the globe, but did not pursue her attraction to Daredevil. Apparently reconciling with Stick, Elektra joined his organization for an indeterminate time, and both of them were on hand to guide Wolverine through a healing process (spiritually and physically) soon after the loss of his adamantium laced skeleton.

Presumably, Elektra continues to live in New York City, attempting to make a new life for herself.
