Elektra

History

Elektra was the only daughter of a Greek shipping magnate, growing up in idyllic surroundings, pampered and privileged. At a young age, Elektra's mother was killed in an attempted kidnapping and, paranoid that the same fate could befall his daughter, the elder Natchios engaged a variety of martial arts tutors to train her to defend herself. When she came of age, she went to America for college. She lived an adventurous life, her zest and relentless spirit attracting the attention of a particular young man. When her father was killed, however, for defying organized crime, Elektra dropped out of school suddenly and returned home to seek revenge.

Elektra sought further training wherever she could, eventually coming under the influence of the demonic ninja cult known as The Hand. Elektra proved a natural born killer and used her newfound skills to find a place in the underworld, to infiltrate it and seek out those responsible for her father's death. Somewhere along the way, she began to lose a bit of her soul. An encounter with her old boyfriend revived her conscience, but seemingly too late, as she found herself murdered by another assassin for her sins.

Nearly nine months later, Elektra arose from the dead, summoned by The Hand and resurrected to be their bloodstained savior. The influence of the Beast, their totem demon, was strong upon her soul and, at first, she was lost in evil. For a time she lead the hand, leaving bodies in her wake and increasing the outreach of their fell mission. By the time she began to recover her soul, she found her spirit bruised, numb and battered. While she broke off ties and rebelled against the Hand, she could no longer pretend she was an innocent seeking revenge.

Since then, she has taken on a mercenary life, carefully taking assassinations and mercenary jobs that she finds suiting to her talents. She mostly kills those already steeped in the underworld and would never go after a true innocent. Anyone thinking this makes her a good guy will find themselves woefully mistaken.

Recent Events

Personality

Elektra's hard to know, prone to keeping to herself and not apt to share her feelings. To most, she seems cold, emotionless and even cruel. She has wounded herself too much to allow herself to be touched again by anything as petty as sentiment or compassion. Once, she felt guilt for the evils she had done, but no longer. She is as she must be, accepting her fate and leaning into it. While she can and sometimes will care about other people, she will not do so easily or even willingly, even resenting those who somehow earn her regard. She is relentless, tireless, patient and exact in all things.

Character Sheet

RESURRECTED: Elektra was raised from the dead by specific arcane magick devised by the hand, infernal in origin and potent in application. She was dead for months before being brought back to life, suffering in an unknown hell that she can't quite remember, except for occasionally as she sleeps. The spell has a few lingering effects on the assassin.

Pain - Elektra no longer processes pain the way others do. She can tolerate incredible amounts of physical suffering without breaking or shutting down, more than five times what would make a normal person pass out.
Instinct - The distinction between Elektra's spirit and flesh has been narrowed. Her reflexes and actions occur at the speed of thought, giving her incredible reaction time and reflexes, making her capable of easily plucking arrows in flight or deflecting bullets with a sword.
Shielding - Elektra's mind is walled off by the same magick that locked and bound her soul in place, making it extremely difficult to read her mind and almost impossible to control her.
