History

Origin

The woman later known as Alexandra was born centuries, maybe millenia ago. During her "first life", she had a daughter, who passed away at a young age.[2] Lost and looking for answers about life and death itself, she eventually found her way to K'un-Lun. Alongside four others, she was banished because of their search for immortality. Together, they became the five fingers of The Hand.[1]

Alexandra was the chief officer of The Hand, handling business deals and manipulating governments.[3]

In the early 21st century, Alexandra was diagnosed with terminal cancer, and without more "Substance" she was finally facing death.[4] In a final attempt to save herself, she used the last remaining stores of the "Substance" to resurrect the Black Sky and gathered the fingers of The Hand.[5] Together they worked to undercover a dragon skeleton under Manhattan. Facing dissension among The Hand and opposition from the Defenders and Stick, Alexandra was unceremoniously murdered by Elektra and decapitated post-mortem to prevent resurrection.[6]
