The ninja known as the South Wind belonged to an ancient order called the Four Winds
, serving their spiritual leader the Master of the Four Winds
. When his leader, also known as Timothy Lee, was framed for killing a prostitute, the South Wind was summoned and sent to New York to slay the man who was truly responsible, Richard "Pig" Malone
. Malone was under police protection because he agreed to testify against Lee in court, and Elektra
was hired to make sure Malone remained in one piece. The North Wind
found Malone first but was killed by Elektra. South Wind tracked her along with the East
Winds through the wound their fallen teammate gave her before his demise. Although hesitant to fight one associated with the Hand
, the South Wind unleashed his fiery fury on Elektra until the East Wind's throwing stars were deflected by Elektra into his neck, killing him.
