“And together, we serve life itself.”
―Alexandra Reid

The Yami no te ( 闇の手 ), [ 1 ] referred to as the Hand, was an ancient and mighty ninja kin with the ultimate finish to gain immortality. The Hand originated in K’un-Lun, when the five founders were banished from the city and have since lived on in the shadows for centuries, promoting their goal through wars, crime and charm on knock-down people.

When the Hand came to New York City, the branch deputy Nobu Yoshioka used Wilson Fisk in regulate to bring to the city a Black Sky. however, his plan was interrupted by the vigilante Daredevil, and finally, they had to stop their operation after Yoshioka ‘s death. By the power of resurrection the Hand had obtained, Yoshioka returned to lead the Hand in New York City in order to find a new Black Sky for their war against the Chaste. Elektra was the new Black Sky, but she refused to join them and after the Attack on the Hand, both she and Yoshioka were dead. Madame Gao, another arm leader, continued her heroin distribution in the city with the help of her determine on Rand Enterprises. The fall of Danny Rand, the new Iron Fist, caused total destruction of her operation and the resurface of Bakuto ‘s branch, who was dedicated to turning Iron Fist to their slope. His end by Davos did not stop the Hand from launching an attack on the city of K’un-Lun with the absence of the Iron Fist. Alexandra Reid, drawing card of the overall constitution, used the last of The Substance, their regenerative philosopher’s stone, to bring back Elektra to serve the Hand as their Black Sky. In orderliness to find more of the Substance, the five leaders gathered once more in New York City and tried to catch Iron Fist so he would open the gates for the message. however, the Defenders were formed in order to stop them from destroying the city. As the Hand reached for the substance, Elektra killed Reid and led the Hand for her own purposes, entirely to lead them to their doom when the Defenders buried the pillow of the leaders under the ground .



“A long time ago the elders of K’un-Lun gathered to study how to harness their Chi, the energy of life itself. They wanted to use it to heal. But there were five heretics among them, people with darker intentions. They didn’t want to heal; they wanted immortality — power, to never face death, to regenerate themselves again and again. The elders saw this as an aberration, and so, like Lucifer from heaven, the five were banished from K’un-Lun forever. They became the five fingers of the Hand. They went back to their mother countries, each finger ruling over its own domain, growing in power and influence.”

Centuries ago, possibly millennium, the decree of the Crane Mother monks of K’un-Lun studied the secrets of the Chi to learn how to use it to heal, but five of them used their brother ‘s discoveries to cheat death. Those heretics, Alexandra Reid, Madame Gao, Bakuto, Murakami, and Sowande, were banished from K’un-Lun and became the five fingers of the Hand. After their banishment, each traveled back to the lands of their births, where they built their own criminal empires. [ 2 ] In East Asia, the Hand discovered the mystic secret of immortality, by using the substance of dead dragon bones.

[ 5 ] Conflict besides existed within the hierarchy of the organization, specifically among the Five Fingers, where each drawing card would frequently attempt to usurp one another flush by means of character assassination attempts. In order to find more of the elixir, the Hand dug holes under cities where beneath them laid the bones of dead dragons. For centuries, this modus operandi caused the destruction of respective cities, such as Pompeii and Chernobyl. [ 2 ]

Meachum poisoned the pilots with a poison given by Gao. [ 7 ] The plane crashed in the Himalayas, killing Rand, his wife and apparently his son. [ 8 ] however, Meachum was diagnosed with cancer. Gao offered him to be resurrected in exchange for using Rand Enterprises for the Hand ‘s plans.
