"I'm going to kill him. And if you get in my way, Matthew, I'm gonna kill you too."
―Elektra to Matt Murdock[src]

Elektra Natchios is an assassin who was trained under Stick, the same old man from the Chaste who later trained Matt Murdock. She fell in love with Murdock when on a mission for Stick to bring Murdock into the Chaste. She returned to his life after ten years of absence, putting her beliefs and methods at conflict with his own. Later, she was revealed to potentially be the Black Sky, the one who is supposed to lead the ancient organization of assassins known as the Hand.

However, Elektra chose to help Murdock defeat the malevolent organization, and was killed in the final confrontation with Nobu Yoshioka. The Hand retrieved Elektra's corpse from the grave and placed it in a stone chamber, where a faint heartbeat was heard once the chamber is closed.

Trained by the Chaste

YoungElektra-FightPrep

Elektra during her combat training.

Elektra was raised from a young age by Stick, a member of the Chaste, under whom she was trained in combat.[1] During the winter as a child, Elektra took ballet lessons when her capoeira master returned to Angola. She also took Muay Tai every other Thursday.[2] Combat lessons with Stick once involved Elektra fighting three grown men at the same time at the young age of 12. Stick stopped the lesson and told Elektra, whom he called Ellie, that she was bending her wrists, which caused her hands to hurt. Elektra pointed out that a man was watching her, but Stick told her to ignore him and finish the fight.

YoungElektra-SavedByStick

Stick told her it was wrong for her to kill one of their members and that she must control what was inside of her until the right moment. As Elektra was punching a boxing bag, one of the members entered with the intent to kill her. As he attacked, Elektra used his knife to cut his throat. As Star said that he would kill Elektra, Stick said she was his responsibility and killed Star. Stick told Elektra that it was time to go. [1]

"You get all of that from a pair of old wingtips?"
"Quick study."
―Elektra and Matt Murdock[src]

At a party function attended by Foggy Nelson and Matt Murdock, Murdock left Nelson to get a drink when he found Elektra. Elektra noticed Murdock walking toward her, but before he reached her, he was caught by a security guard who forced him to leave the venue for being uninvited.

Murdock thanked Elektra and their conversation began to change as Elektra said that Murdock clearly wanted to be somewhere with someone, instead of sneaking into fancy parties, and continued to analyse him. Murdock then gave his thoughts on Elektra, saying that while charming and rich, she was bored. The two introduced themselves and Elektra left the party, stealing a car while Murdock watched.

At some point later, they both enrolled in the same Spanish class, causing Nelson to joke that Murdock only took the class to be near her.[3]

Elektra Love

―Elektra and Matt Murdock[src]

The two were in a car driven by Elektra, speaking French to each other, when they pulled up to a house. Elektra explained to a confused Matt Murdock that the mansion belonged to one of her father's associates who was off to Monte Carlo, where prostitution is legal. The two broke the glass door and entered with Murdock carrying Elektra. Elektra began to look in the refrigerator and asked what was going to happen when Murdock graduated and the two of them get married. She said that this is how they would live.

The man happened to be Roscoe Sweeney, who had killed Murdock's father. Elektra tied him to a chair and explained to a shocked Murdock that Sweeney now went by the name Al Marino. Sweeney had not remembered Murdock, saying that he killed a lot of people's dads, until Elektra said his first name. At Elektra's urging, Murdock began to hit Sweeney. Murdock continued to hit Sweeney much to Elektra's enjoyment. Elektra wanted Murdock to kill Sweeney but Murdock refused and dropped the knife Elektra gave him, much to her disappointment. Murdock called the police to report the location of a wanted felon. Elektra vanished by the time Murdock turned around.[2]

She gave him a suit and explained her plan to attend a gala and get a key card off Stan Gibson which would gain them access to a secret floor in the Yakatomi Building. As they walked in, Murdock said that she caused a lot of attention, turning a lot of heads and raising a lot of heart rates.

Post-Mortem

Elektra Finale

Elektra's body is taken away by the Hand

"I had only a few moments with her, amidst all the noise, chaos and the violence, we were together only for moments, that was all. Orchids, she likes orchids, and yeah Stick, it was worth it."
Stick and Matt Murdock[src]

At Elektra's funeral, Matt Murdock and Stick were the only attendees who paid their respects to their fallen ally while Murdock told the story of how he had brought her flowers while they were dating in college before explaining to Stick that despite all the pain and the violence, it was all worth it to love her. However, that same night Elektra's body was dug up from her grave by The Hand, who dressed her in a red uniform and placed her in the sarcophagus to be reborn as the Black Sky.[10]

Personality

Elektra is shown to be a very confident woman, in both her skills and looks, once telling Matt Murdock that every man she's ever met has wanted to sleep with her. This has led her to be arrogant at times as she believed that she was superior to Stick and that the only reason he attempted to have her killed was because of his jealousy of his pupil.

However, Elektra states that she is alone in the world and believe that Matt Murdock and her are kindred spirits as she viewed him as the only person who understands her for who she is deep down. She was deeply upset when he refused to kill Roscoe Sweeney, claiming "I thought you understood me". Elektra also had a habit of becoming bored quite easily which Murdock picks up on their first meeting. Thus, she has developed a fun-loving, free-wheeling and wildly unpredictable personality and is more than capable of having a good time throughout her crusade with Daredevil.

Being raised by Stick for most of her life, Elektra learnt to be the perfect assassin and killer. She can be coldblooded to her enemies and enjoyed killing them; the first time she did was when she was twelve and that was in self-defence but admits that she liked doing so. She doesn't possess Murdock's moral compass but at the same time seems to respect him for his refusal to kill whereas Stick would degrade him for it. Elektra tends to think of her goals as first and furthermost importance with little sympathy to others and little care or even realisation over breaking the law. For example to assist in Murdock's case she forces a confession out of Doctor Gregory Tepper but her involvement made his confession useless entirely and after killing a Hand assassin she believes that it being in self-defence would absolve her over any legal punishment which was corrected by Murdock.

Unbeknownst to Elektra herself she was in actuality the Black Sky, a mythical deity within the order of the Hand who is worshipped by its followers. Though she herself had known to have darkness in her heart; this side was violent, volatile and the main reason why she was said to enjoy killing so much. When Nobu finally revealed the truth, Elektra accepted it almost immediately as she seemed to feel that it was truly who she was because her mentor and father-figure always told her to hide who she was after being adopted to a wealthy family, but it was ultimately Matt Murdock's words that no one could tell her who she was that put her down the path of good.

In the end, Elektra was a much more selfless and brave woman who was willing to sacrifice herself for the man she loved and assuring that the Hand would never be in possession of the Black Sky. She dies claiming she knew what it meant to be good. However, Elektra was still more concerned about her goals than anything else as she was willing to ignore the hostages that the Hand had kidnapped but she ultimately decided to help Daredevil save them.

  • Elektra liked orchids.[10]

Behind the Scenes

  • Élodie Yung described Elektra as "kind of a sociopath. This world is a game for her. It's like a chess game, and what motivates her is what she wants. She'll use anything she needs to use to get to her goal, and if she needs to kill people, she would." She added that Elektra is neither good nor bad, but a "person with different traits" and layers.[11]
  • Daredevil exclusive producer Doug Petrie calls Elektra "the best bad girlfriend you can possibly have. She does everything wrong and attractive, she's [Matt's] id, the wild side. Matt is always taming his wild side. Elektra just lets it out. He's both repulsed and deeply drawn to that.[12]
