Bio:
http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/10/101568/2961557-daredevil-508-023.jpg

Centuries ago Master Izo was a member of the Hand warrior clan.  When the Clan sought to add power by adding the influence of a Demon, Izo left.  He disagreed with the evil energy that corrupted the clan.  He created his own clan high up on a cliff called the Chaste.

As part of his founding of the Chaste, Izo cut out his eyes, blinding himself so he could see the world in a special way.  In this way he developed the radar sense like power that Daredevil is known for.  Over many years he brought in other students and trained them in the ways of the warrior.  He also battled his old clan the Hand who had now become fully perverted by the evil of the Demon.

Master Izo is not saint, but more of an old, grumpy warrior.  He has many issues that made him hard to tolerate to the other members of the Chaste.  He was very impulsive and would do things on a whim.  He was also prone to bouts of alcoholism and gambling.

Eventually he is replaced as Leader of the Chaste by his blind pupil Stick.

He remains part of the group but also often goes off on his own way.  He has worked for both the Hand and the Chaste.  He has at numerous times tried to reform the Hand away from their evil ways.  As part of this schemes he has added his own mole Tarantula into the organization and even trained the woman Lady Bullseye to be the clans eventual leader.

He reappears in the Shadowland story to tell everyone that Daredevil has been corrupted by the evil demon the Beast.


Alcoholism:

Master Izo battles alcoholism much like Tony Stark.
