Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Little is known about the life of the adventurous Yukio before she became an assassin for the Japanese crimelord Lord Shingen, leader of Clan Yashida. As part of Shingen’s campaign against the mutant hero Wolverine, Yukio drugged Wolverine and brought him before Shingen who proceeded to shame him in battle. Later, Yukio manipulated Wolverine into helping her kill Shingen’s rival Katsuyori. Attracted to Wolverine, Yukio chafed at his love for Shingen’s daughter Mariko, but nevertheless saved Mariko’s life when her abusive husband threatened her.
