Kirigi was the son of The Hand leader, Roshi. He was one of the Hand's best warriors and assassins, and he became the leader of a small group of mutant ninjas. Kirigi killed Elektra's mother when she was a child.

When the first attempts of the Hand to kill Elektra Natchios and kidnap the young Abby Miller failed Kirigi was put in charge of the situation. Roshi assured him that if he accomplished his mission, he would become the new leader of the Hand.

Thanks to the powers of Tattoo, the group was able to find Elektra and her protegees in no time. Kirigi killed McCabe, Elektra's "manager", and then followed the woman, Abby and Mark Miller in the woods. During the following battle, two of the Hand ninjas were killed, but Elektra was defeated and Kirigi himself captured Abby. In that very moment, Stick and his men appeared and stopped the Hand ninjas, forcing them to flee.

Kirigi was then contacted by Elektra herself and they came to an agreement. The two of them would fight and if Kirigi won he would have Abby. If Elektra won, the girl would be free forever. Kirigi accepted, and the two met in the same house in which Kirigi killed Elektra's mother. Using his superhuman speed and his swordsman abilities, Kirigi easily defeated Elektra, but was stopped by Abby. Then Elektra, who had learned enough of his fighting style to anticipate his speed, imaled Kirigi with one of her sais and his body turned to dust as he fell in a pit. [1]
